For Black Friday, gamers are in for a treat because the Xbox Series S console is down to the cheapest price we’ve ever seen.
Dell has the white 512GB version of the console available for $234.99, $65 less than its retail price — which is the cheapest price on the web right now. This is the starter bundle, which comes with the console itself, a white Xbox Wireless Controller and a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (a $50.97 value) for online multiplayer, game download access and cloud gaming.
Other retailers, on the other hand, like Target and Walmart also have the Xbox Series S (512GB) Starter Bundle on sale for $239.99 and $249 (list price $299.99), respectively. In addition, the Microsoft Store has the starter bundle on sale for $239.99, or $60 off its retail price. Considering how fast previous restocks have sold out — and hefty resale prices — you’ll want to buy one fast.

Xbox Series S: Starter Bundle (22% Off)
The popular console has been in high demand since it came out in November of 2020, with retailers quickly selling out of stock as soon as they go live. It’s quickly become known as the pinnacle of Microsoft gaming efforts, with powerful performance and super-fast loading times that promise gamers a competitive edge. Reviewers have noted that games that would have chugged in older generation consoles run more smoothly in the new iteration, with near-4K resolution to boot.
The console comes with upgrades to interface design, too: Quick Resume allows you to have multiple games loaded up at once so you can quickly jump between titles, while cross-platform syncing means you can load games from different devices and jump in right where you left off. Plus, the Xbox Series S controller is an improvement from its predecessor, with smart designs such as triggered textures and an upgraded D-pad that help with swift movements.
Meanwhile, Walmart has the Xbox Series X Diablo IV Bundle (1TB) on sale for $439, or $120.99 off its list price — a nearly 25% savings.
