In celebration of Memorial Day, Microsoft and retailer Best Buy has unveiled various discount deals on their gaming consoles and consumer devices. Specifically, these deals are for the Xbox One console and the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book hybrid tablets.

Over at the Microsoft Store, the tech giant is currently offering various bundle deals for its Xbox One. The cheapest package is the Xbox One "Gears of War: Ultimate Edition" bundle which costs $299, which is $50 cheaper than its original value. This bundle features the matte black 500GB Xbox One console, a wireless controller, a full download of the remastered "Gears of War" title and multiplayer skin for Superstar Cole.

The most expensive bundle, on the other hand, costs $499. This includes a 1TB Xbox One console, and Xbox Elite wireless controller and carrying case, and storage for additional game.
