Cyber Monday is well underway and the deals are pretty good for those who shop around. While many mainstream online retailers such as Best Buy or GameStop have decent console deals, other outlets seem to be a bit better.

There are quite a few deals out there for video game software, but you may be searching for discounts on hardware. For those who are in the market for an Xbox One, Groupon has a solid deal in mind. On sale from now until Dec. 3 is a 1TB Xbox One, Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle for $219.99.

The console has been refurbished by the manufacturer, so take that for what it is worth. The originally listed price is $349.98, so it’s quite the discount. This is solid for an Xbox One with a 1TB of storage, in addition to Rise of the Tomb Raider.

It’s fair to assume Rise of the Tomb Raider is a physical copy, since no mention of a code is given. One wireless Xbox One controller will be in the box when you receive it. I would, again, caution people to think carefully before purchasing a refurbished system, particularly with the following deal also being offered.

Groupon is also offering a 500GB Battlefield 1 Xbox One S bundle for $249.99. This is a brand-new system and isn’t refurbished. The downside between the two is the S has half the storage of the Xbox One. That said, the S technically is a superior system with its HDR capabilities. Hurry though, as I’m betting this deal will run out sooner than later. If for some reason the Groupon deal is over, check out this Best Buy link with the same deal.

Both console deals are stellar and certainly worth a look if you need a system. I would say the latter is the one I’d prefer since the S isn’t refurbished. Anytime I’ve bought a refurbished piece of hardware, it has also come with a headache. At least with the Xbox One S deal, you know you’re getting a brand-new system. Personally, that would give me some piece of mind if I were buying.

Head on over to Groupon as they have other excellent video game software deals too. Batman Arkham Knight is on sale for $16.99 for both PS4 and Xbox One. Destiny – The Collection is also on sale for $44.99 on both PS4 and Xbox One. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on video games.
