Black Friday is closer than you think and retailers have already begun sharing the deals they will be offering on Xbox. Let’s be clear right up front: We haven’t see any Black Friday deals for the Xbox One X and most likely won’t. But we did find plenty of great discounts on the Xbox One S, controllers and games.

Editors’ Note: Black Friday links won’t show discounted prices until they are live. We’ll update this article with more deals as they are posted.


It’s a good year to want an Xbox One S. The console will be on sale on Black Friday for $190.

Pre-Black Friday deals

Usually Black Friday brings the best deals, but these pre-Black Friday ones are rather compelling. 

Amazon has a Battlefield 1 bundle that includes an Xbox One S 500GB and the game for $200. What makes this such a bargain is that on Black Friday the console without a game is $190. So you’re basically getting Battlefield 1 for $10, and you don’t have to wait a week.

Newegg is offering the Forza Horizon 3 Bundle along with Star Wars Battlefront II and The Evil Within 2 for $266 when you use the code EMCBBBH44.

Microsoft is adding two free games to all of its $250 bundles. The selection of free games includes one recent title like Call Of Duty: WWII or Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and one lesser value game like Hasbro Family Fun Pack or Watch Dogs.

Walmart has a Halo bundle with Halo 1-5, Star Wars Battlefront II and another game for $250. This is simply one of the best pre-Black Friday deals we’ve seen.
