Microsoft is finally giving us a discount on the Xbox One X

Although the sale won't start till Thursday, June 7, we've got the lowdown on the deals you should watch out for - and a few you should skip.

If you've been waiting to buy an Xbox One X, this is a great time to do so.

As for games, they say there will be 75 percent off certain games, including discounts on titles like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Monster Hunter: World, and Sea of Thieves. Alterantively, you can also watch via Mixer; Xbox gave out freebies for watchers previous year.

The highlight of the sale is the $50 discount on the Xbox One X, bringing its price down to $449.99. Microsoft has yet to announce the exact discounts for the games, but we will see more information regarding the discounts when the sale launches on June 7th. The sale ends on June 23, but it might be a sign that the high-end system may be receiving a permanent price drop soon, especially if the promotion moves a lot of units. In the case of Xbox Games Pass, this allows you to try the service before you subscribe, while that Xbox Live Gold discount will unlock a month's worth multiplayer functionality on the cheap.

For those who are curious about Game Pass, you can also nab a one-month subscription for a measly dollar during the sale.

The Microsoft E3 2018 conference is scheduled for June 10th at 1 PM PT/4 PM ET/9 PM BST.

Both Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation are among the manufacturers and publishers preparing open-access press conferences at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo. Gamers will also be able to customize their own controller from over a billion color combinations with Xbox Design Lab controllers, which will start at a new low price of $69.99.
