Will the Xbox Series X/S be on sale over Black Friday?
Almost certainly not. As the consoles will have launched just a couple of weeks before, you can pretty much guarantee that there will be no discounts on the Xbox Series X or S during Black Friday.
Both are already selling out in a matter of minutes once new stock becomes available, so the best you can expect is that Microsoft will be making more available to buy over Black Friday. With the busy sales period often encouraging more spending, it would be the best time to supply more stock to retailers.
A price cut this early, though? Hah, not a chance!
And that should just about cover everything you need to know right now. As the hulking retail monstrosity that is Black Friday draws closer we’ll continue to update this page with all the latest offers. You can keep up-to-date on the Jelly Deals Twitter account, but expect the deals to start appearing from early November before the biggest bargains arrive from the 23rd.
What other Black Friday Xbox deals do we expect to see in 2020?
With the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition and Xbox One X both now discontinued, it’s a little harder to find Black Friday huge discounts on those two consoles. Where there is remaining stock, expect that to get the biggest reductions. Maybe we’ll see a repeat of the terrific refurbished Xbox One X deal that popped up out of nowhere earlier this year? Get on that if you see it.
Given that we saw an Xbox One S with FIFA 21 as the big Amazon Prime Day offer this year, you can probably expect something similar over Black Friday. At £250, though, it was a pretty hard sell. The Xbox Series S is that price by itself, so if anyone is going to be tempted by a last-gen console, it’ll need to get a much bigger price cut. We’re hoping for under $200/£200.
Next to that, Black Friday should be the ideal time to bulk up your Game Pass subscription. New members looking to try the service for the first time should be able to take advantage of a better introductory offer like last year – so look out for a repeat of the three months for $1/£1 deal. If you’re a long-time subscriber we might see a return of half-price subscriptions, though Microsoft may look to cut down on these mega discounts going forward.
