While we’ve found some fantastic deals on games and accessories, console deals are thinner on the ground. But now that the world is opening up more from the pandemic, we’re not seeing the same insane demand. We’re even starting to see some deals on the Xbox Series X or S for the first time. You’ll find it all below.
All of these deals were live at the time of writing, but we’ll do our best to update the list as we find new offers.
Xbox One Games
If you already have one of the Xbox One consoles, you might want to grab a new game or two to escape the world for a while. This past generation has an extensive library of blockbuster games to discover, and thankfully there isn’t the same scarcity of game deals as there is on consoles right now.
We’ve found that Walmart and Amazon often have the best deals on Xbox games. Here’s a selection of our favorites:
You can also take advantage of a discounted three-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership for $28.29. The membership includes access to Xbox Live Gold and EA Play, which together feature well over a hundred games to play across all your devices.
Amazon is often your best bet to save on accessories. Here are some of the best Xbox deals on games right now.
Xbox One X consoles
The first choice you have to make if you want to buy an Xbox is which model is right for you. If you’re a power user, the Xbox One X is the larger and more powerful option. It features a slimmer, more powerful graphics card and DirectX 12 optimized cores.
Even better, the Xbox One X features native 4K support and 12GB of GDDR5 memory for faster startups and smoother performance. The One X also has a redesigned fan system for better cooling. Your favorite games and accessories should work with either Xbox model, so the decision mainly comes down to price and performance.
Deals and new consoles are almost impossible to find on both consoles right now. Here are some refurbished options from reputable outlets:
As you can probably guess, the Xbox One S is the smaller and lighter of the two consoles. It’s an upgrade over the original Xbox One, and it’s the more affordable model currently available. The Xbox One S supports HDR 10 like the One X, and both consoles feature Dolby Atmos sound.
If you’re looking for a console to hold you over until the new Xbox Series X becomes more affordable, the One S may be your best bet. You should have no problem with backward compatibility, and the Xbox One S also embraces digital gaming in a way that the One X doesn’t; you can buy a One S without a disc slot for exclusively digital gaming.
As stated above, it’s nearly impossible to find these new consoles at reasonable prices right now.
