Xbox Series S is currently available for $150 for US-based Verizon Up members
The special offer significantly reduces the price of Microsoft’s console
Verizon customers can currently pick up Microsoft’s Xbox Series S console for just $150 in the US.
Mobile account holders who are signed up to the network’s Verizon Up offers scheme can claim a coupon code that gets the console for half its $300 ERP.
While Xbox Series S launched in November 2020 priced at at $300, it’s currently available to purchase from Microsoft for $239.99. Nevertheless, Verizon’s offer, which is available while stock lasts, significantly undercuts this.
Verizon’s website has reportedly been experiencing issues this morning, presumably due to the popularity of the deal, and some customers have reported having better luck using its app to claim the offer.
Microsoft’s head of gaming recently said the company has some “GoldenEye type” reveals planned over the coming months ahead of a major product showcase in June.
During an Xbox On interview, Phil Spencer was asked if there are any big Xbox reveals planned before this summer’s showcase.
“So, a lot of our focus right now is on the showcase in June, but there’s some news that’s coming out,” he replied. “Like, you know, like we did the GoldenEye [announcement], I’m thinking like, you know, GoldenEye type announces.”
Following months of speculation, Microsoft officially announced a modern port of GoldenEye 007 for Xbox Game Pass in late January.
“So, there’ll be games available in different services,” Spencer continued. “Obviously, the Game Pass portfolio continues to grow, but most of our focus as a team is really on getting ready for the showcase.”
