Black Friday deals are going live at an alarming speed, including a new Xbox Series S deal at Currys. The UK retailer is selling Microsoft’s next-gen console for just £189, which is even cheaper than the £199 price tag currently available to Argos customers. Without doubt one of the best Black Friday deals of 2022, the Xbox Series S deal represents a discount of £60 on the original asking price.
The Currys deal makes an already affordable next-gen system even more of a bargain.
The stylish Xbox Series S console is 60% smaller than the Xbox Series X, and almost as powerful.
The built-in solid-state drive delivers super speedy loading times, as well as 4K visuals with the potential for 120 frames-per-second gameplay.
It comes with the new and improved Xbox Wireless Controller, which a textured grip and hybrid D-pad.
One of the best things about the Xbox Series X/S consoles is the ability to play games from the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and original Xbox.
Many of the backwards compatible games come with improved loading times, visuals and frame-rates. You don’t even need to do anything to optimise your old favourites.
And remember, if you’re looking for some games to try with your brand new console, you can sign up to Game Pass Ultimate for just £1 for the first month.
The Xbox subscription service – which usually costs £10.99 a month – gives users access to hundreds of games to download and stream. That’s on top of Xbox Gold access, meaning you can play games online.
The games list contains brand new first-party releases on the day they launch. This means you can play brand new Forza, Halo and Gears of War games the moment they launch, and without paying any extra.
With Microsoft recently purchasing gaming companies like Bethesda and Activision, this includes titles like Starfield and future Elder Scrolls releases.
You’ve also got a lengthy list of games from Electronic Arts to choose from, such as Battlefield 2042, It Takes Two and Grid Legends.
That’s on top of indie hits like the newly released Somerville, Return to Monkey Island, Norco and the hugely addictive Vampire Survivors.
