There’s no doubt that Microsoft’s Xbox One X will be this year’s most wanted game console. Not to be surprised because at 40% more power than any other console (with six teraflops of power) with it comes some killer 4K gaming. But will it be on sale this Black Friday?
We sadly don’t think it will be. With it being released on or around November 7th or so, you’ll probably be lucky if you’re able to get one in time for Christmas. You can expect to see prices at list price, likely released with a few different bundles. We of course will be watching all of the latest details and will be posting all of the available deals for the new Xbox One X as Thanksgiving comes around.
With that being said, this will probably be the best year to score a deal on Xbox One S. Last year you could of picked up the Xbox One S 500GB Minecraft bundle on sale for as low as $249.99 (regularly $299.99) at Kohl’s with an extra $75.00 in Kohl’s Cash, effectively dropping the price down to $174.99. So be on the lookout for even deeper discounts coming.
This is also a good time to consider a some competing gaming systems – including Sony’s Playstation VR – as we are expecting 2017 to be the first year retailers include it in their Black Friday weekend sales. PS4 and PS4 Pro are also expected to see competitive price cuts this holiday season.
Will you be trying to get your hands on the new Xbox One X this holiday season? Or will you be waiting this one out until after the initial release rush? Let us know int he comments below.
