Ok, first things first: you’ll need a console. Luckily, Microsoft gives you a couple of options. The entry-level option is the Xbox Series S, which doesn’t run 4K resolution games and loses its disc drive. However, if you’re someone who uses Xbox Game Pass or only buys digital games, the Series S is great unless you need a truly cutting-edge gaming experience.
Plus, there’s actually a couple of good deals on the Series S this Black Friday. The best deal right now is the Xbox Series S for just $239 on Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for the console, but it’s on sale for $249 at several other retailers if that price drops.
If you want something more powerful, then Xbox Series X is for you. This next-generation console offers native 4K gaming and 4K upscaling at up to 8K resolution. It truly is the best Xbox ever and will be future-proof for years to come. Unfortunately, there are no discounts on the Series X right now, but at least it’s finally available.
The best Black Friday Xbox game deals
Ok, so you have a console and maybe an extra controller. Now you need some games to play. Black Friday is an excellent time to pick up some of the best Xbox Series X/S games, so be sure to grab a few before they drop back to full price.
One of the best deals out there right now is Elden Ring for just $35 at Walmart (opens in new tab). We found Elden Ring to be a great game when we reviewed it, with deep and challenging gameplay and solid character building.
And while there are some great deals on first-party Microsoft Xbox games, don’t forget that you can get those games included in Xbox Game Pass. So don’t take advantage of the (admittedly great) Halo Infinite deal below if you have Game Pass. You already have it.
The best Black Friday Xbox accessories deals
So now you have the console, at least one controller, and some great games. Now it’s time to top it all off with some great Xbox accessories.
Right now, the best deal is probably this Xbox Wireless Controller in Pulse Red for just $39 at Best Buy (opens in a new tab) This deal when combined with the Xbox Series S deal on Amazon (opens in a new tab) tab) is still cheaper than buying the Xbox Series S with a second controller at Walmart (opens in a new tab).
But there are also some deals on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which is a must-have if you want to experience everything Xbox Series S and Xbox Series S have to offer. Right now you can get a 3-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership for $40 on Amazon (opens in a new tab). If you just want to try the service, you can get your first month for just $1 at Microsoft (opens in new tab).
