Black Friday Xbox Series X deals — best early deals you can shop now
Black Friday Xbox Series X deals are expected to be some of the most in-demand offers of this year. Last year, the Xbox Series X was only a few weeks old during the annual sales event so it didn’t see any price cuts. Now that the console has been available for almost a year, we’re expecting to see plenty of Black Friday deals on the best Xbox Series X games and best Xbox Series X accessories.
Gamers who have yet to jump into the next generation of Xbox will be wondering whether any retailers will be offering an Xbox Series X restock during the retail holiday. We don’t have a confirmed answer to that burning question quite yet, but we can definitely make some predictions based on previous restocks.
If you’ve already secured an Xbox Series X, then Black Friday will offer you the chance to fully kit out your console with a load of games and accessories. However, if you’re still hunting for a machine, then Black Friday is likely to be one of the last opportunities to buy one before the holidays.
Black Friday may still be several weeks out, but that doesn’t mean we’ve not already got an idea of what deals we can expect to see. Plus, there are already some early deals that are worth considering. Read on for our Black Friday Xbox Series X deals predictions, and the best deals you can shop right now.

Black Friday Xbox Series X deals: What to expect in 2021
The Xbox Series X was launched in November 2020, and almost a year after its initial release, finding it in stock remains a tricky task. For that reason, a discount on the system itself seems highly unlikely.
Even though the PS5 is technically the best-selling next-gen console, the Xbox Series X has actually become the harder of the two machines to purchase in recent months. Throughout 2021 just being able to buy the Xbox Series X for its $499 usual price has been considered an achievement when the alternative is paying over the odds on the resale market.
The cheaper Xbox Series S, which has a $299 retail price, has been easier to purchase in 2021. However, it’s still regularly faced lengthy stock shortages. It’s highly unlikely that the entry-level next-gen Xbox will get any form of price cut for Black Friday either. Microsoft cannot reliably fulfill the demand even at its base retail price, so the chances of a discount seem remote.
In lieu of a price cut, some retailers may attempt to entice gamers with a range of Xbox Series X bundles. However, the bundles we’ve seen over the course of 2021 haven’t offered any savings. Instead, they have cost the usual prices of all the products included combined. We don’t expect retailers like GameStop who typically offer bundles to change this practice in time for Black Friday.
The Xbox Series X itself may not receive a price cut this year, but that doesn’t mean that plenty of Xbox Series X games and accessories won’t go on sale. Expect some of the biggest games of the year to be available at a steep discount, and an Xbox Game Pass membership may also get a temporary price cut.
Accessories like headsets, extra controllers, and external hard drives will also likely be discounted at multiple retailers. Black Friday will also be an ideal time to upgrade your home entertainment setup with one of the best 4K TVs. A stunning new display will really enhance your gaming on the Xbox Series X.
Black Friday Xbox Series X deals: Will there be an Xbox Series X restock?
The chances of an Xbox Series X restock over the Black Friday period actually seem fairly high. During last year’s sales event several retailers dropped stock of the console to draw customers to their websites. Earlier this year Amazon even held a drop to mark Prime Day. It seems rather likely that retailers will again use the interest caused by an Xbox Series X restock as a way to boost the number of shoppers browsing their online stores.
While it’s still too early for any retailers to have confirmed any Black Friday Xbox Series X restock plans, we expect to hear some whispers in the weeks leading up to the sales event.
