Microsoft Clears Out Xbox One For $179 At Brick And Mortar Microsoft Stores Sunday, 12/11 Only

Today is Day 7 of Microsoft's 12 Days of Deals promotion, an annual holiday event in which it marks down items for sale at the Microsoft Store. Each day is also accompanied by a doorbuster item, a sale item that is only available in-store at one of Microsoft's retail location, and today's doorbuster an original Xbox One console for $179.

That's a $120 savings over the Xbox One's normal selling price. It's even less expensive than a previous generation 500GB Xbox 360 console, which sells for $200 at the Microsoft Store. This will likely be the lowest price around for a new (not refurbished) Xbox One console this season. The only caveats are that it's not available online and the deal is good while supplies last.

Xbox One

It appears Microsoft is looking to clear out old inventory of Xbox One systems now that the Xbox One S is here. The Xbox One S is an updated version of the Xbox One. It's 40 percent smaller with an internal power supply, comes with up to 2TB of onboard storage, is capable of 4K resolution streaming and Blu-ray playback, and supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), a feature that is found on some newer TV models.

If you don't live near a Microsoft Store, there are several other Xbox One deals available to purchase online from the Microsoft Store. Here's a look at some of them:
The deals don't seem to last very long—several of the marked down original Xbox One systems are now listed as "Out of stock" and we doubt they're coming back, as Microsoft is all about the Xbox One S going forward.
