This year's Black Friday Xbox Series X offer many great ways to expand your gaming experience for less. We didn't see any price drops last year since the Series X was brand new, but a year later and we're seeing the same big discounts on the best Xbox Series X games and best Xbox Series X accessories that we're used to. Both game prices and accessories are jumping in and out of stock, so be sure to check back frequently. It's also a good idea to check out our Cyber Monday Xbox Series X  page, as we'll be updating this now Black Friday is over. 

Gamers who are 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. Walmart held a restock on Monday (Nov. 23) and we expect to see more retailers taking fresh orders now that Black Friday has arrived. 

If you’ve already secured an Xbox Series X, then Black Friday is the perfect chance to fully kit out your console with a load of the best Xbox Series X Black Friday game deals 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. That's unless you fancy splurging $10,000 on the new Gucci Xbox Series X.

Black Friday Xbox Series X deals have already started. Read on to see the best sales you can get today.

Black Friday Xbox Series X deals over the holidays

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.

In lieu of a price cut, retailers will 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. 

Will be the Xbox Series X be discounted for Black Friday?

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. For that reason alone don't count on a Black Friday Xbox Series X deal that discounts the console itself.

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.

Will there be an Xbox Series X restock?

Walmart has confirmed it will offer Xbox Series X consoles on November 22 (opens in new tab) at 4 p.m. ET. This restock will be for Walmart Plus members only. If there are leftover consoles, the general public will be able to shop starting at 7 p.m. ET. 

The chances of seeing more 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. 

Make sure to bookmark our Xbox Series X restock hub which is updated daily with the latest restock information as we get it.
