Original Xbox One drops to $249

It's the lowest official price yet for an Xbox One, if you don't mind the older design.

Just want an Xbox One for the lowest price possible, and aren't dead set on getting the sleeker, slightly more powerful Xbox One S? Microsoft is about to make your day. It's lowering the US price of the original, 500GB Xbox One system to $249 "for a limited time" -- no doubt to move units before the 500GB Xbox One S arrives later in the year. This includes any bundle, too. You can find the discounted console at Amazon right now, and GameStop is sweetening the deal further with a $30 gift card.
