Xbox One X is off to a surprisingly strong start

If you don't want to wait for the Xbox One S (or are anxious about retailers selling out), you can snag a console (again, presumably a 500 GB version) for $249 with an additional game as a bonus through the 18th. Pre-orders and backwards compatible games (including the recent addition of original Xbox games as well as Xbox 360 content) can not be gifted, and some consumable or micro transaction items are also excluded.

Over the past week, numerous country's leading retailers have unveiled their tantalizing Black Friday deals.

If that wasn't enough for you, Microsoft is also creating four gold plated Xbox Ornaments which will be available to win on the Microsoft Store Facebook pages from November 23rd.

Microsoft does, however, have a surprise recommendation for Xbox One X owners.

19 - 27: Save up to $50 on any 1TB or 500GB Xbox One S bundle available this holiday season.


The Microsoft Store's Black Friday deals preview just went live and it includes the best price yet on an Xbox One S. You'll also find some discounts on Windows Mixed Reality headsets and a Vive bundle along with some Xbox game and accessory discounts.

"You can take advantage of our best deal ever for the new Surface Pro - $329 off the Surface Pro i5 256GB and $229 off the Surface Pro i5 128GB", read the post. Current subscribers of Xbox Live Gold can save on the purchase of some digital video games.

Save $15 on Xbox Design Lab controllers from November 21st to November 27th. Now then, will Xbox One X maintain its momentum? After all, at $500, it's the most expensive console out there, with its closest competitor being the PlayStation 4 Pro at $400.

Sony confirmed its PS4 Black Friday 2017 deal yesterday. After doing a spot-check of The Martian: Extended Edition 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray today using a standard Xbox One X with a Samsung QN65Q7F and Marantz SR6011, using both Game Mode and Standard, there were no issues with the picture or the Atmos sound.

These deals start on November 23 and will run until November 27.
