Hooray for Easter; a crackin’ excuse to load up on chocolate and video games, make appalling egg puns with zero consequences, and cast a keen eye on retailers for egg-ceptional Easter deals. Who said Easter was just for kids? Opt away from the usual generic seasonal fare and give the gift of geekery this Good Friday.
A time traditionally associated with dandy candies and snuggly bunnies, Easter is fast becoming a mega sales period across all the major game stores. Although the price on individual consoles tends to not fluctuate too much; there are fine savings to be made and delicious bounties to be had on generous Xbox bundle offers.
A range of discounts are due on consoles, games and accessories — courtesy of the Easter bunny and our beloved technology overlords, and just in time to catch lazy online shoppers for the long weekend. So whether you’re looking for a headset, new games or a brand new Xbox One X, we’ve hatched the ultimate Easter games deals for you.
In preparation for the sales, we’d recommend starting out with an idea of what you want and how much the item costs normally — check prices before the Good Friday run up on price comparison sites like CamelCamelCamel — as well as making a note of any bonus shinies you’re keen on. Additionally, a brief Google Shopping search can give you an idea of what the average price of your decided items. So, without further hesitation, let’s eggs-plore some of the best offers available this week!
Xbox One Console Easter Sale deals
Whether you’re looking to nab an older Xbox S or upgrade to 4K with the indescribably shiny Xbox One X; the deals are abounding in the run-up to Easter. Current prices are sitting at around £200 for an Xbox One S, and £415 for a brand new Xbox One X. However, as usual, you can make a killing with console bundles online, nabbing extras like popular games, controllers and even Now TV (ideal for your new streaming capabilities) — guaranteeing plentiful savings.
Xbox One Game Easter Sale deals
With up to half-price off the latest Xbox titles, Good Friday is most certainly Good for Games — especially if you’ll looking to save coveted hard-drive space with physical copies. You can pick up some top performing titles for under a tenner; whether you want to explore dystopian wastes or mow down some demons. You’ll also find decent discounts on the newest and shiniest games — like long-awaited Battle Royale simulator PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
Xbox One Accessories Easter Sale deals
Easter’s the perfect time to pick up top-quality official Xbox accessories, giving your gaming setup a seasonal boost. If you want to get immersive with a headset, catch a couple more controllers, upgrade your storage (squeezing in more discount titles) or chug away at Forza 4 with a steering wheel in tow; there’s plenty of opportunities to nab a discount and even the odd bonus here and there. Additionally, a new wave of game titles come April sees an opportunity to pre-order top notch merchandise.
Xbox Live Easter Sale deals
Whether you’re competitive or co-operative, you’ll need an Xbox Live membership to play with friend and foe alike. Additionally, you’ll get free games each month, including backwards compatible 360 classics, as well as steep discounts on the Microsoft store exclusive to Xbox Live. There’s even a little something here for indie lovers, with early access to game demos provided as part of the service.
