The Best Deals On Xbox One For Black Friday 2016

It’s that time again. America’s busiest shopping day is upon us, and with it comes an excellent opportunity to pick up a new console.  The Xbox One may have gone through a bit of a rough patch, but it’s back in full force with backwards compatibility, the slimmed down “S” model, and a couple of years worth of excellent games. If you’ve waited this long, you could do worse than picking up an Xbox One S this Black Friday.

As a rule, expect $50 off Xbox One bundles in their various forms. This puts standard 500 gb Xbox One S bundles at $249.99, and other SKUs priced accordingly.

Dell has one of the best deals out there today: the 500 gb Battlefield 1 bundle with Gears of War 4 and an extra controller $249.99. If you’re a fan of shooters, both of those are worth having. The Microsoft Store has flexible bundles overall, with $50 off select bundles plus a select game and a $25 code. Shopko has the 500 gb Battlefield 1 bundle for $299 with $100 in electronics coupons.

Target is offering 500 gb Battlefield 1 and Minecraft bundles for $249.99 plus a $40 gift card. Gamestop has got a pretty slick-looking Blue 500 gb Xbox One S Bundle for $249.99, or a 1tb Gears of War 4 bundle for $299.

Game wise, deals are all over the place. But some of the best you’ll find are at Best Buy, which has a wide range of new and slightly older games at deep discounts. A good rule of thumb for buying software during Black Friday is to skip anything that came out in the past three months or so: nobody discounts those much. Head back a year, however, and you can find truly excellent games for $20 and under. Even some of the biggest hits from 2016 summer and winter are finding themselves down 50% or more. I’d recommend Overwatch at $35.

Most other major retailers online and off will have $50 off most bundles, so that’s what we’re working with here.
