As far as free gifts with phone packages go, gaming consoles are up there with the best of them. Whether you are a gamer or have a friend or family member who is, bagging a free console with your phone deal is a great way to cross a tick off your gift list.

Free XBox Phone Deals

When XBox launched in 2001 it went toe-to-toe with the Sony Playstation in the battle for best gaming console. Which is better is still a bone of contention, but if you’ve never owned either you are in a perfect position to take advantage of one of the free XBox phone packages offered by retailers and mobile networks. With over 2,500 games to choose from you can find Vodaone contracts with free Xbox deals taking on Three Mobile XBox packages, while other networks also offer free XBox with contract promotions. MVNOs like iD Mobile have been known to get in the mix, as have Virgin Mobile and Sky Mobile.

Free PS4 Phone Packages

Where you sit on the PlayStation versus XBox debate shouldn’t put you off bagging a PS4 for free. Even though the PS5 was released in the UK in 2020, PS4’s are still tasty bits of kit, with games set to continue being released for the PS4 far into this decade. The PS4 boasts a 500GB hard drive, 8GB memory and a processor that boasts clock speeds of up to 2.3Ghz. All of which technical jargon translates into top notch gaming experiences. PlayStation features some games you won’t find on XBox, and vice versa, but there are plenty of cross-platform games, including smash hits like Minecraft, Call of Duty and Fortnite. 

Free Nintendo Switch Contract Offers

While XBox and PlayStation are targeted at serious gamers, the Nintendo Switch free contracts on offer at various networks are very much aimed at more playful audiences. With games like Mario Kart, Luigi’s Mansion and 1-2-Switch making the most of the Switch’s multiplayer appeal, the emphasis for the Nintendo Switch is more on getting together and playing with friends and family, either via Nintendo online or playing next to each other on the couch. MVNOs like Virgin Mobile and Sky Mobile have both been known to offer free Nintendo Switch pay monthly phone deals, as have promotion heroes iD Mobile. 

About Free Console Phone Deals

The question of which is the best console with phone deal is down to you, because more often than not the packages are linked to particular handsets and contracts. So not only does the free console have to be the right choice, but first and foremost it has to be a handset and a contract that is right for you. There is no point in overextending your monthly payments to an unlimited data 5G iPhone deal that comes with a free PlayStation if you won’t use all that data, don’t need 5G and prefer Android handsets to Apple! The idea of a free console with your pay monthly phone contract is a tempting one for anyone. It just has to be the right choice for all reasons, not simply to bag a good deal.
