The best Xbox One S deal of 2019: Just $185

That's for the 1TB console bundled with two oldie-but-goodie games.


Don't yet own an Xbox? Looking to upgrade a well-worn 360? Whatever the case, this is a good time to jump in. Like, very good. 

For a limited time, and while supplies last, Altatac via Rakuten has the Xbox One S 1TB with Sunset Overdrive and Titanfall 2 for $184.99 shipped. That's after applying promo code ALT33X at checkout. (You also need to have and be signed into a Rakuten account.) 

To put that in some perspective, Walmart currently sells the console alone for $208. Here you get it with a pair of pretty great games -- older ones, no question -- for nearly $25 less.

If you're an Xbox newbie, here's what you need to know: The One S is a widely loved console that supports 4K gaming, but only via upscaling. If you want native 4K, you'll need the pricier Xbox One X.  

It's worth noting that you can also still get the Xbox One S 1TB with Red Dead Redemption 2 for $215, a deal I shared last month.

But if you want to get into an Xbox as cheaply as possible, this $185 bundle is one of the best deals I've seen.
