and Xbox One S bundles are arriving hot and heavy in the lead up to the holiday weekend. We've found some great savings on both Xbox One X and Xbox One S consoles, though we're not really seeing a ton of variety in being bundled. The week is young, though, and we'll update this article when we find more noteworthy deals.
Case in point: Microsoft has finally announced its complete lineup of Black Friday deals for Xbox, which includes $350 Xbox One X consoles, $100 off on Xbox One S, $20 off on select controllers, and three months of Xbox Game Pass for just a buck.
As you look for deals and savings, remember the difference between the Xbox consoles. The Xbox One X is a true 4K gaming system and can play games, Blu-ray discs and streaming video content at 4K on a UHD TV or monitor. It has a beefier video card and a faster 2.3GHz processor too. The Xbox One S doesn't have the same horsepower under the hood (specifically, it has a 1.75GHz processor). The Xbox One S just upscales games to 4K, but it's not a true 4K console.
And don't forget there's a newarriving sometime late in 2020. Should that stop you from getting a new Xbox console right now? Heck no -- why would we deprive ourselves the joy of playing Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order for a whole year? And that console will be backwards-compatible with your existing Xbox One games.
With that preamble out of the way, here are the deals you need to know about.
