The best Xbox One Holiday sales

Information verified correct on December 5th, 2016

Thanks to a growing roster of exclusive games like Halo 5: GuardiansQuantum Break and ReCore, Microsoft's Xbox One is sure to be a hot ticket item this Christmas. We've rounded up where to find the best deals and what to know before buying.

2016 marks the third Christmas spent with the Xbox One. Thanks to a series of aggressive discounts and price cuts, the Xbox One has come a long way since its debut in 2013. With increasingly quality exclusives like Halo 5: Guardians, Quantum Break and ReCore making their way to the platform, the platform's popularity has continued to skyrocket and the Xbox One has no doubt made its way on to many Christmas wish lists.

As most Aussies know, there's no better time to buy than the holidays, so we've rounded up the best deals on Xbox One consoles, games and accessories this Christmas and beyond.

What's likely to be on special?

Games. Lots and lots of games. Traditional brick and mortar stores like EB Games and JB HI-FI are bound to be abuzz with shoppers looking for the cheapest deals they can find, so why not avoid the rat race and do your holiday shopping online. Stores like the Microsoft Store, Ozgameshop, Big W and Target, though not yet announced, are sure to have plenty of deals on the latest games (like Fallout 4, Destiny, Disney Infinity, Lego Dimensions and Call of Duty: Black Ops III) and accessories (like controllers, headsets, charging docks and other peripherals).

Shopping tips: Xbox One

  • When shopping for games make sure the person you're shopping for has the correct console. If you buy an Xbox game for a PS4 owner or vice versa, they simply won't be able to play it.
  • Games with online capabilities, like Evolve, Destiny, Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars Battlefront are best - and sometimes only - when the user has a stable W-iFi connection with plenty of data.
  • Check the rating when you're shopping for games. Games are rated by the Australian Classification Board, just like TV and movies, so you can know for sure if the title is age appropriate.
