To celebrate another amazing year at the largest gaming conference in the world - E3 - leading technology retailer Argos is offering selected customers the chance to take home the new Xbox One S All-Digital Edition in white for the price of a takeaway coffee.

 

In a UK first, the console, usually priced at £199.991 will be available for just £3 - a massive 98 per cent discount for 10 lucky customers.

 

The consoles will also become one-off pieces of art, with acclaimed artist Josh Parkin illustrating them with an image of each lucky gamer, in his unmistakable style.

Lucky customers will be randomly selected to collect their console at London’s Old Street Argos store on Monday 24 June. Those unable to make it in person have the option of having it delivered to their home2

 

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition enables gamers to build a library of digital games and offers the chance to pre-order and pre-install upcoming games, ready to play the moment they launch. With a disc-free experience eliminating the need to constantly change and store physical games, the console is the ideal choice for minimalists who want to reduce clutter.

 

It comes with Forza Horizon 3, Sea of Thieves and Minecraft ready to play and includes a wireless controller and one month of Xbox Live, making it the best value console in the Xbox range. For even more value you can add an Xbox Game Pass for Console membership. Over 100 high-quality console games for just £7.99 a month. With games added all the time, there's always have something new to play3.

 

Peter Wray, Head of Gaming at Argos, said: “We wanted to share the excitement of E3 and celebrate the launch of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition with this very special price of £3. Our collaboration with renowned illustrator Josh Parkin also means gamers can make an aesthetic feature of their console in their home.”
