The holidays are here, and with them come deals. In addition to crafting a list of best-available deals, below, we’ve compiled all of the Xbox-related Black Friday deals we thought merited attention. We hope you’ll find them useful.

Some general pointers before you dive in. Most of the console and peripheral deals are the same; the real differentiating factors are retailer-specific gift cards.

For your convenience, we’ve broken down the deals by outlet, starting with Xbox’s own sales, followed-up by deals from Target, Best Buy, and others.

Complete sales lists: Nintendo | PC | PlayStation | Xbox

Launcher Recommends — Game Pass Ultimate

Don’t know what game to get your Xbox player? Get them a library of 100 titles, including games like Gears 5, Wolfenstein II, The Outer Worlds and more. The subscription deal (for new subscribers only) will provide a three-month runway to trial the service and/or find the titles you or your gamer likes best. Don’t like the service or find you’re only playing one or two games? Cancel and then purchase those new favorite games independently, knowing your research made it a smarter spend.

  • Xbox One S 1TB All-Digital Edition Console (Disc-free Gaming) - White on sale for $149.99 (Normally $250)

Launcher Recommends — Xbox One S 1TB All-Digital Edition

It’s a little hard to advocate buying a new console so close to the debut of a new generation from both Microsoft and Sony, but if you don’t want to wait for (or spend on) a next-gen system, then this deal can get you in the game for a very low price. This bundle includes three games (Minecraft, Sea of Thieves and Fortnite), and even though Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode (read: the mode you or your kid really wants to play) is a free-to-download game, the value here is terrific. Read our full list of recommendations here.

GameStop has, uh, a lot of games and peripherals on sale — too many to list, frankly — so we’ll focus on their hardware offerings. Their Black Friday catalog can be found here for all other inventory. (Anthem is on sale for $5).

Launcher Recommends — Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (C.O.D.E. edition); Tom Clancy’s: The Division 2

Snagging a copy of Modern Warfare from GameStop ($38) sends a donation from the retailer to the Call of Duty Endowment, which assists veterans rejoining the workforce after their service. The game is definitely for mature gamers only, but the latest installment of the series is easily one of its best for both multiplayer and campaign modes, even if it currently lacks Black Ops 4′s battle royale mode.

If your gamer is into loot-shooters, The Division 2 ($12) will keep them occupied for a long time as they wander the wastelands of an extremely detailed post-apocalyptic Washington, D.C. The sequel may not have been as well received as its predecessor, but the price is right. Read our full list of recommendations here.

  • Xbox One S 1TB Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Console Bundle on sale for $199.99 (Normally $300)
  • Xbox One X 1TB NBA 2K20 Console Bundle on sale for $349.99 (Normally $500)

  • Doorbuster: Xbox One X 1TB NBA 2K20 Console Bundle on sale for $349.99, along with $105 of Kohl’s cash (Normally $500)

Launcher Recommends — Xbox One X 1TB NBA 2K20 Console Bundle

If you really feel like you want to upgrade to the current top-of-the-line Xbox (and keep in mind it won’t be top-of-the-line much longer, with the next-gen console coming), then you can splurge on the One X and get its souped-up specs for 4K graphics. This is the most visually beautiful console on the market right now. Why we like this deal instead of other similar One X-plus-game combos for $349.99 isn’t because you’ll get NBA 2K20, but because you’ll earn $105 back in Kohl’s Cash to snag extra accessories or additional games.
