$1 for three months of Game Pass Ultimate is hard to beat
Xbox sure knows how to slash prices for big holiday promos, and Black Friday 2019 is no exception. Microsoft is taking $150 off the top for Xbox One X console bundles and $100 off Xbox One S systems.
From November 24 to December 2, the console deals are:
- Xbox One X bundles for $349.99 ($150 off)
- Xbox One S bundles for $199.99 ($100 off)
- Xbox One S All-Digital Edition bundles for $149.99 ($100 off)
There are a lot of different bundles with a lot of different games floating around, so it’s up to you – the Black Friday discounts are across the board. I’d just be wary of the All-Digital Edition if you like discs.
Certain Xbox One controllers – like the Kait Diaz Gears 5 Limited Edition, Sport Blue Special Edition, and Night Ops Camo Special Edition – will be $20 off from November 24 to December 2. So $50 instead of $70, in most cases. If you think those gamepad designs are ugly (you said it, not me!), you can also save $10 on your own custom-detailed Xbox Design Lab controller during that Black Friday window.
The best overall deal, however, is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Beginning November 14, you can get three months of the service for $1. That’s full access to some great games – including The Outer Worlds, Gears 5, and Subnautica – for a dollar. Game Pass Ultimate includes Xbox Live Gold, too.
Or, if you’d rather not be tied to a subscription, you can save on select Xbox Game Studios titles:
- Gears 5 (33% off)
- Forza Horizon 4 (50% off)
- Sea of Thieves: Anniversary Edition (50% off)
- State of Decay 2 (50% off)
- Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (50% off)
…And a whole bunch more. Xbox Live has Black Friday deals on over 500 digital Xbox games.
They really, really want everyone to sub to Game Pass. Imagine how overwhelmed you’d be if you woke from a coma and just now considered getting an Xbox One, a year before Scarlett is due.
