*(deal is $329, with $30 gift card) Wal-Mart looks to shave $50 off Microsoft's already low promotional price

It was clear Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) was getting more aggressive with the pricing of the Xbox One when it dropped the console to $349 USD for the holiday shopping season.  Now Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) has announced plans to trim an additional $20 off the price, plus offer a free gift card.
There is a catch.  Wal-Mart is looking to make sure its employees don't miss Thanksgiving alone by encouraging shoppers to suffer the same fate.  The deal is only good from 6 to 7 pm on Thanksgiving Thursday, so unless you're willing to missing Thanksgiving -- or have it later in the evening -- then you're out of luck.
But, there's more: this isn't just a plain Jane Xbox One console.  This comes bundled with the unreleased Master Chief Collection -- the entire Halo game series in glorious high resolution.  The bundle is expected to retail for $399 USD normally, and does not include a Kinect 2 sensor.

Xbox One bundle

If you're not a Halo fan, Wal-Mart is also offering $20 off the Assassin's Creed Unity bundle, bringing the price to $329 USD.  And for those not keen on the Xbox One, Wal-Mart is offering Xbox 360 4 GB consoles for $99 USD.  If you buy the discounted Xbox 360 and an Xbox One, you get an additional $20 USD off.
Other Xbox-related offers include a half off 3-month Xbox Live Membership Card and the following Xbox One game titles...
  • Wolfenstein: The New Order
  • Destiny
  • Madden NFL 15
... for $35 USD.  There are many other game deals for $25 or $20 USD.

Walmart Xbox One

Microsoft is trailing the PS4 in lifetime sales, so predictably the most aggressive sales are on the Xbox One side.  But Wal-Mart is offering those who buy a PS4 (at $399 USD) their choice of either two premium games (Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us) (MSRP: ~ $102) or a $50 USD gift card.  

Walmart deals

There are also more modest online shopping deals (e.g. a Master Chief Collection Xbox One for $379 USD).
