The absolute best Xbox One Black Friday deals and discounts

We scoured the depths of the internet to find all the best Black Friday deals for all your Xbox needs.

Josh Miller/CNET

Black Friday is closer than you think, and retailers have already begun sharing the deals they will be offering on Xbox. Let's be clear right up front: We haven't seen any Black Friday deals for the Xbox One X, and most likely won't. But we did find plenty of great discounts on the Xbox One S, controllers and games.

Editors' Note: Black Friday links won't show discounted prices until they are live. We'll update this article with more deals as they are posted.


It's a good year to want an Xbox One S. The console will be on sale on Black Friday for $190.

Pre-Black Friday deals

Usually Black Friday brings the best deals, but these pre-Black Friday ones are rather compelling. 

Amazon has a Battlefield 1 bundle that includes an Xbox One S 500GB and the game for $200. What makes this such a bargain is that on Black Friday the console without a game is $190. So you're basically getting Battlefield 1 for $10, and you don't have to wait a week.

Newegg is offering the Forza Horizon 3 Bundle along with Star Wars Battlefront II and The Evil Within 2 for $266 when you use the code EMCBBBH44.

Microsoft is adding two free games to all of its $250 bundles. The selection of free games includes one recent title like Call Of Duty: WWII or Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and one lesser value game like Hasbro Family Fun Pack or Watch Dogs.

Walmart has a Halo bundle with Halo 1 to 5, Star Wars Battlefront II and another game for $250. This is simply one of the best pre-Black Friday deals we've seen.
