Will the latest Xbox consoles be available on Black Friday?
The $500 Xbox Series X was consistently available on the Microsoft Store during Black Friday, while most other retailers had sold out of stock. Amazon lets shoppers sign up to buy the Xbox Series X by invite, while other retailers like Walmart, Target, and Best Buy regularly stock online.
The less powerful Xbox Series S has been discounted by $50 for the holiday shopping weekend, bringing the price down to $250 at most major stores. GameStop also sells used Xbox Series S consoles for $230.
What is the difference between the Xbox consoles?
Microsoft designed the current Xbox consoles with different prices and performance in mind.
The $500 Xbox Series X offers more storage and better performance, while the Series S is less powerful and lacks a disc drive, meaning you’ll have to commit to buying digital games or using subscriptions like Xbox Game Pass.
That said, the Series S is still a great device for buyers wanting a more affordable console, and it’s an upgrade over the Xbox One family of consoles.
