BLACK FRIDAY XBOX. The Xbox Series S is taking advantage of great discounts for Black Friday. The Xbox Series X, meanwhile, is available in stock. We take stock of the offers not to be missed.
[Mis à jour le 24 novembre 2022 à 17h15] What offers are interesting around the Xbox Series for this Black-Friday ? The two Microsoft consoles are in stock at the moment, this of course concerns the Xbox Series X (the most powerful model) but also the Xbox Series S which is displayed at a price crossed out at 229 € almost everywhere on the sites of resellers. We’ve seen it as low as €219 at Electro Depot but stock unfortunately didn’t last. Anyway, displayed at the price of 229€ instead of 299€, the Xbox Series S is quite affordable at the moment during Black Friday. This is undoubtedly the opportunity for you to move on to the new generation of video games with this console dedicated to dematerialized games.
If you are looking for an Xbox Series X, know that the competitor of the Playstation 5 is very widely available in stock online or in stores during this Black Friday. However, it is very rarely on promotion via packs. We could see it in a bundle of interest with a Series X accompanied by Halo Infinite and Far Cry 6 for the price of a single console. But this kind of packs have been very rare for the moment during the week of Black Friday. Anyway, the most powerful Xbox console can be found in stock everywhere on the web, which is already very good news for future buyers.
We note that promotions around the Xbox Series X are rarer than for its little sister the Xbox Series S for a simple reason: the Xbox Series X, direct competitor of the Playstation 5, is selling in quite correct proportions even at its standard price of €499.99. It is therefore not necessarily considered necessary to offer it at unbeatable discounts. Still, we remain on alert to find you promotions around the Xbox Series X. In any case, if you are in a hurry, you can invest in an Xbox Series X at its base price without fear of making a bad business.
What accessories for your Xbox Series?
If you’re purchasing an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, you may want to add a few accessories to your cart depending on your situation. For example, if you are a fan of couch parties, buying an additional controller is a must. For Black Friday, you can find quite easily Xbox Series controllers at €44.99 instead of €59.99. A nice reduction of -25% all the same! Also, if you regularly download games to your console’s hard drive, you’ll probably find yourself cramped pretty quickly with the Xbox Series S’s 512GB drive or the Xbox Series X’s 1TB drive. this case, we recommend that you purchase a official Seagate 512 GB expansion for Xbox Series at €131.99 instead of €159.99.
What games are on sale for your Xbox Series?
The Xbox Series X is also a catalog of particularly interesting games. This Black Friday, resellers are stepping up their efforts to offer promotions of interest on games playable on Xbox Series X. For example, the unstoppable FIFA 23 is already going to €49.99 instead of €69.99. The standard meter of football games signed Electronic Arts therefore offers a very nice promotion just a few weeks after its release. If you’re more into adventure games, we recommend the Day 1 version of Cyberpunk 2077 for only €22.73. If action games are more your genre, there are plenty of titles to watch including Halo Infinite at €9.99but also the excellent Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for €19.99 or Far Cry 6 for $24.99.
One of the big advantages of embarking on the purchase of an Xbox Series is the fact that it allows you to have access to the Xbox Game Pass subscription which, for a monthly amount of 13€, allows you to access to a toy library of several hundred games constantly renewed. This video game catalog alone justifies the cost of the subscription, which is very affordable for the number of games that can be found there. Note that all games from studios belonging to Microsoft arrive in the Game Pass subscription from the first day of their release, which makes the subscription even more interesting for players.
As a reminder, the Xbox Series S does not have a disc drive. It is therefore impossible to buy boxed games to play on Xbox Series S. On the contrary, you have to buy your games on the Xbox online store and download them directly from the internet. You can also bank on the Xbox Game Pass subscription which, for a fairly modest monthly subscription, offers access to a regularly renewed catalog of around a hundred games including exclusives developed by Xbox studios from the day of their release.
The Xbox Series X is the pinnacle of Microsoft’s efforts. It delivers on the promise of flawless performance and a huge library spanning multiple generations of Xbox games. Since this one was out of stock before, the prices are not always the cheapest. It is still far from being easy to buy but it is worth it. The Xbox Series X has been out for almost two years but if you’re expecting a price drop, there may be some doubt as the console has been around for quite a while at €499.99. Offers are however expected on the side of packs, games and console accessories.
If you want to take the plunge but with a tighter budget, turn instead to the Xbox Series S, a model without a disc drive and offering an experience in 1440p resolution and not in 4K. In this, therefore, you will not be able to buy boxed games but will instead have to shop online. Be aware, however, that the hard drive of the Xbox Series S only offers a space of 500 GB against 1 terabyte for the Xbox Series X. During Black Friday 2022, the major retailers are planning significant price reductions for this console, in particular via fundraising operations on the side of supermarkets.
Finally, owners of Xbox consoles (and even PCs) may be interested in a particularly interesting subscription offer from Microsoft: the Xbox Game Pass. This offer by monthly subscription gives access to a catalog of a hundred video games, recent or less recent, all for a modest sum. Included, a hundred video games whose listing is regularly renewed as well as the EA Play catalog of Electronic Arts games including Battlefield 1, Star Wars Battlefront 2, FIFA, Need For Speed, Burnout and many others.
The Xbox Game Pass subscription also allows you to take advantage of all the new Xbox Game Studios studios from the day of their release, at no additional cost. Subscription cards are available for purchase for Xbox Game Pass and are often offered at discounted prices on Black Friday. The 2022 edition should therefore be no exception to the rule. This is an ideal gift for video game lovers who play on PC and Xbox consoles.
