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.
