Microsoft offering free 1TB Xbox One and 3 games for Surface buyers

If you're in the market for a Microsoft Surface or Surface Book, you can score some handy gaming bonuses.

Microsoft Store is currently sweetening the deal for anyone shopping for a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book. And by sweetening the deal, we mean coating it in honey and rolling it in icing sugar.  From 18 August until 7 September, Microsoft is offering a bonus Xbox One console with 1TB of storage, one Xbox Wireless Controller and 3 free games with the purchase of any Surface device priced over $1,999.00. In practice, that means any Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book model will qualify.

Those who receive the bonus will receive Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: Master Chief Collection and one of the following titles of their choice:

  • Forza Motorsports 6
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
  • Rare Replay


Whether this means Microsoft is clearing out stock to make room for the recently released Xbox One S, or it's simply a matter of bringing July's successful US campaign along the same lines to Aussie punters, it's a solid deal that will save you around $650.

The Microsoft Surface Book are Surface Pro 4 are both impressive machines in their own right, if not a little pricey given their premium quality. However, when you bundle it with over $600 extra value the asking price is much easier to stomach.

The deal is available through Microsoft Store as of yesterday.
