Black Friday 2022: Xbox Series X is finally cheaper but not for long

There are a couple of rare Xbox Series X discounts for Black Friday, so you’ll want to act quick before they sell out.

Chances are you’ve already seen the Xbox Series S selling at a discount during Black Friday. Microsoft has knocked the price down to £190 for Black Friday and that deal is being matched by a few other retailers.

While it seemed there would be no such price drop for the Xbox Series X, a couple of discounts for the console have now been spotted in the wild.

The first is at Very, which has cut the price by £20, making it £429.99. If you’re willing to pay extra, you can also get it with an extra controller and/or a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass.

The second is with BT of all things. It’s not as cheap as Very’s deal, only discounting it by £10 to £439.99, but it’s still an alternative should the Very deal sell out.

It’s a tad shocking that Microsoft hasn’t issued any sort of price drop on the Xbox Series X itself considering it’s been in stock for roughly two years now, and the worst of its stock shortages appear to be over.

This is also likely to be the cheapest the Xbox Series X ever gets for the foreseeable future, as Microsoft has admitted it intends on following Sony’s example and make the console more expensive after Christmas.

Both offers are live at the time of writing although we expect both to sell out quickly given their rarity. We’ve added links below as well as to the various Xbox Series S discounts still available.
