Xbox Series S gets £60 off as Early Black Friday Exclusive

News Summary:

  • If you happen to be looking for discounts on gaming products, this is a perfect time, especially if you’re looking for the latest generation of consoles and don’t want to spend too much money. That’s where the Xbox Series S comes in.

  • The Black Friday sales have been in full swing this month, but as the day itself (Nov. 25) approaches, we are starting to see the real bargains.

Compared to the more powerful Series X (£449, Amazon.co.uk), the Series S is a digital offering in a smaller package that can play the same games as its counterpart without the 4K resolution.

It’s also an excellent way to experience what Game Pass has to offer. Like a monthly Netflix subscription, Game Pass gives players access to more than 100 titles, including the latest Microsoft-exclusive games. Among the new additions worth checking out right now are the sleepy indie hit Vampire Survivors and the medieval detective sim Pentiment, if you’re looking for recommendations.

The Xbox Series S is currently discounted by £60 at Amazon, as part of the early Black Friday deals. It’s an excellent deal on a 2022 gaming console that was already a decent value, so it’s definitely worth a look if you’re in the market for a console to play the latest games.

In our round-up of the best gaming consoles to play in 2022, we said, “The Xbox Series S is remarkably well priced for a gaming console in 2022. With the lowest price point for any of the major next-gen console manufacturers, it’s a good option for anyone looking for an inexpensive gaming solution that doesn’t need 4K resolution to have a good time.”

What is Black Friday?If you have yet to store during Black Friday, you can expect to save some serious money in time for the Christmas rush. The shopping event originally began in the U.S. as a one-day event, the day after Thanksgiving, to clear out old stock before the latest products hit the shelves in time for Christmas. Now it is a global affair, with huge discounts at almost all major retailers.

Many British retailers are participating, slashing prices on major brands such as Apple, Dyson, Shark, KitchenAid, LG, Nintendo, Asos, Flannels, Sky and more. When is Black Friday 2022 in the UK?Since Black Friday in the U.S. always takes place the day after Thanksgiving, it’s a pretty easy event to track in our calendars. This year, Black Friday itself takes place on Nov. 25. But for most brands and retailers, the sale runs through the weekend until the following Monday, called Cyber Monday.

British retailers have been hosting sales events for Black Friday for a number of years, and those sales periods have become noticeably longer as a result. As a result, you can expect some of your favorite online giants, such as Amazon, Currys, AO and Argos, to offer deals weeks in advance. While this may sound daunting, you’ll find the best early deals here in this guide, so save this page to always be in the know.

When does the Black Friday 2022 sale start?Although a number of clearance sales will trickle in throughout the month, the best sales are usually found on the day itself, on Friday, Nov. 25. However, you can expect many brands and retailers to start weeks in advance. Amazon, for example, started its Black Friday 2021 sale a month earlier. What were the best Black Friday deals of last year?On the gaming front, we saw a lot of Nintendo Switch bundles (£333, Very.co.uk), including three months of Nintendo Switch Online and a copy of Mario Kart 8. We also saw the Oculus (now Meta) Quest 2 on sale for £299 at Currys with a £50 voucher.
