Black Friday Xbox deals: FAQ

When will Black Friday Xbox deals start?

Black Friday Xbox deals officially kick off on November 25, but we often see games and accessories taking some heavier price cuts from Thanksgiving week. That means we're in the thick of some of the year's biggest discounts right now, and it's all to play for. 

Black Friday Xbox deals: what to expect

Xbox Series X bundle

It's highly unlikely that we'll see discounts on the console itself during 2022's Black Friday Xbox deals. However, we are looking forward to some excellent savings on controllers, headsets, and other accessories. If you're looking for something a little more expensive, we'd recommend checking out Black Friday Xbox Series X TV deals.

All of the peripheral gear originally launched alongside the Xbox Series X console has now had plenty of time on the shelves. By the time Black Friday Xbox deals roll around, these controllers and headsets will have been available for two years and will have to start competing with younger, more feature-rich models at lower price points. That's when the big savings start rolling around. Third parties have got their heads around the new consoles and the additional features they require, which means the day one releases need to drop their prices to stay relevant. We've already seen some excellent prices on gamepads ahead of official Black Friday Xbox controller deals, but we haven't yet spotted an improvement over the $39.99 sales price featured in the official controller's very first run at holiday sales. With costs sticking close to $49.99 (usually $59.99) when on sale, things could start to loosen up this holiday season. 

Last year's most valuable savings sat on games and Game Pass bundles, so those looking to stock up their library with older (and a handful of new) games will likely be well served this November. Game Pass titles will be available for the lowest prices, but we're also expecting some record low prices on games released in 2022; Elden Ring, Gotham Knights, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, and Dying Light 2.

Where to find the best Black Friday Xbox deals

What to expect from controllers in Black Friday Xbox deals

Xbox Elite Series 2 controller

If you're after a new gamepad, then it might be worth holding out for Black Friday Xbox controller deals. We would recommend keeping a close eye on not only the Xbox Core controller but also Razer's line of Xbox-compatible models. The former is a sure bet for some discounts in this year's Black Friday Xbox deals, however the $39 price spotted in 2020 didn't return last year. That means we're a little less optimistic for a record low, but with costs holding out at $49.99 / £44.99 in 2022 so far, things could certainly drop back down again.

In the Razer camp, however, the Wolverine V2 is lined up for some excellent discounts. 2022 saw the first ever dip to below $100 here, with a $49.99 / £55 sale price back in March / August. Since then, costs have settled at around $69.99 / £69.99, but have been jumping up the full $99.99 / £99.99 every now and then. 

The Razer Wolverine Ultimate is a little older but took a long time to stray from its $169 / £159 MSRP. In fact, January 2022 saw a brand new record low here, tipping things down to just $79.99 for a very brief sale in the US. The UK followed suit to £99.94 in May, but since then we've never seen that cost trickle back below $100 / £100. We're certainly looking for a two-figure price tag come November, though. 

Similarly, the Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 has been taking far larger price cuts in recent months. Just like the Wolverine Ultimate, we haven't seen much deviation from MSRP on this premium gamepad since launch. That $179.99 / £159.99 launch price dipped down to $146 in 2022, but we still have seen a lower cost than 2020's £126 rate in the UK. This is going to be a tough one in 2022, because of the cheaper Xbox Elite Core controller entering the market as well. 

Will the Xbox Series X be in stock on Black Friday?

If you're looking to get your hands on a console before the holidays this year, Black Friday Xbox deals would traditionally be the time to do so. The improvements made to the stock situation over the last few months certainly mean this is far more likely in 2022 than it was last year. We didn't see any drops over the holiday period last year, but with a range of retailers holding onto steady stock for months at a time now, there's some good news for November.

Will there be Black Friday Xbox Series S deals?

While the Xbox Series X is likely still too hot to see any major price cuts, we've seen the Xbox Series S offering up savings regularly over the course of the year. The $299 / £249 console has dipped to $249 / £190 in the past few months, which bodes particularly well for discounts in Black Friday Xbox deals. Not only that, but we've seen plenty of bundle options up for grabs in the UK and can see more packages making their way to US shelves in November as well. 

Those on the hunt for a new console this year should certainly be looking at the Series S. 

How to get the best Black Friday Xbox deals

Black Friday Xbox deals can move quickly, especially if they're on the latest games or high flying accessories. That's why it pays to have a game plan going into the event. We've been tracking Black Friday for years now, and while Xbox Series X is still fairly new to the event, we've got some tips and tricks that will see you safely to checkout. 

1. Know when to buy
You might see offers branded as Black Friday Xbox deals landing from as early as October, however it can pay to wait until at least the start of Thanksgiving week before making the leap. That's when we start to see retailers offering larger discounts, with the truly blockbuster offers landing on the Friday itself. 

However, it's worth noting that these deals will run out of stock a little quicker - and there's no guarantee that a lower price will be available. If you don't want to fight for it, we'd recommend picking up a good price any time in late November.

2. Stick around
Once you've found your perfect price, it's worth keeping a close eye on the rest of the weekend's offers. Retailers sometimes discount certain colorways or games even further over Cyber Monday, if they aren't performing as well. Keep your original purchase boxed and you might be able to get a better price later on.

3. Learn what a good deal looks like
If you've already got a handful of products on your shopping list, it's time to start tracking their prices. We'd recommend keeping a close eye on the accessories or games you're looking for over the next couple of months, and take note of any significant price drops. 

Not only will you know what a good deal looks like on the day, but some products may, in fact, see record low prices that are worth grabbing before Black Friday Xbox Series X deals even begin. 

4. Stay in touch
We'll be rounding up all the very best Black Friday Xbox deals right here, which means you can bookmark this page and come back on the day for a curated roundup of the biggest offers available. 

If you're on the other side of the battlefield, we're also rounding up everything we expect to see from Black Friday PS5 deals. Or, if you're staying out of the argument all together, we're also predicting the biggest offers in 2022's Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals. It's also worth getting your eye in for Black Friday gaming headset deals to truly make the most of your new console. You'll also find plenty of Black Friday video game deals on the horizon as well.
