Best Xbox Black Friday deals: Game discounts, restocks, hardware and more

The Black Friday deals are here for Xbox from the Microsoft Store and other retailers -- but restocks are limited.

The Black Friday sales are in full swing -- with more coming in the days ahead --  and the Xbox deals have come into focus. But there's some bad news: As with the PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch, don't expect any price cuts on Xbox consoles this year. The reason is simple: With sky-high demand and low inventory due to ongoing supply chain issues, there's no reason for Microsoft -- or retailers -- to offer incentives. They're selling every unit they can. That goes for the standard Xbox Series X and the Halo Collectors Edition.

It's likely that there are no more restocks for Black Friday, but there should be more Xbox restocks next week, as there are reports of a drop at 9 a.m. PT (noon ET) on Cyber Monday for Walmart Plus members. Meanwhile, the Xbox Series S pops up more frequently and doesn't sell out as quickly. For anyone who wants an easier entry to the current state of next-gen gaming, it's a solid choice at $300. Meanwhile, plenty of sales are available for games on all major consoles -- that's where you'll see bona fide Black Friday deals on Xbox content this year and what we're pulling together here. Microsoft's own sale officially kicked off Friday, Nov. 19, while Walmart deals on Xbox began Monday, Nov. 22. Keep checking back for the latest updates.
