Another holiday shopping season is upon us, and Microsoft is ready to charge in with discounts on its Xbox One consoles, games and accessories. From November 18 until November 26, Microsoft will offer its powerful Xbox One X console for just $399.99. If that’s too steep for your wallet, then you can also save $100 on a Xbox One S Minecraft Creators bundle, or there is a $70 discount on select other Xbox One S bundles.
Microsoft will also sell its Xbox One wireless controllers with a $10 discount between 11/22 and 11/26. These offers are made all the more tantalizing by a free digital copy of Gears Of War 4, which will be included with all Xbox One consoles and Xbox One wireless controllers purchased from participating retailers during the sales event.
If you are new to world of Xbox, you can also try out Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold services for a month at a cost of $1 each. The Xbox Game Pass gives you access to 100+ games including select new releases, which makes it a tempting offer for anyone that wants to try out a few games before purchasing them. Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold offers less in the way of gaming content, but you will receive two free games each month for Xbox One consoles, and this service will allow you to play online with friends in your favorite titles. If you have an Xbox 360 laying around, you will be able to get two additional games each month for that console as well.
The Xbox Game Pass offer can be redeemed anytime between now and January 3. The Xbox Live Gold offer is just available from 11/15 until 11/30. There is an additional offer to save 40% on a three-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold that can be purchased between 11/22 and 11/26, but these offers cannot be redeemed on the same account. All of these offers require that you are a new user that has never used these services before, so you will only be able to take advantage of one of the Xbox Live Gold offers in addition to the Xbox Game Pass deal.
If you would prefer to purchase your games outright, Microsoft and its partners will be offering discounts on numerous games from 11/22 until 11/30. A few games discounted include the following:
- Up To 35% off Forza Horizon 4
- Up to 50% off Forza Motorsport 7
- 35% off State of Decay 2
- 35% off PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
- 50% off Sea of Thieves

- 35% off Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection
If you are still gaming on an older Xbox 360 or PS3, now the combination of sales this Black Friday make it an excellent time to upgrade to a new Xbox One.
