Just over a week ahead of the event itself, Microsoft has unveiled its lineup of Xbox Black Friday discounts, with a whole batch of offers and bundles for Windows laptops and even the company's VR headset thrown in for good measure.
This also marks the lowest ever price that the Xbox One S console has been available for since launching, as customers will be able to pick up a 500GB Xbox One S model for $189 and get a free game with it. This makes the bundle $10 cheaper than a PS4 1TB Slim console and packs in a 4K Blu-ray player and HDR support where the standard PS4 cannot.
There are a set of other Xbox One deals available, including $50 off various 500GB and 1TB bundles and discounts on Xbox Live Gold, as well as selected games and accessories.
As the season wills, we've got guides to the very best Xbox Black Friday offers, PS4 Black Friday bundles, Nintendo Black Friday discounts, PC gaming Black Friday stuff, and a lot more. Be sure to check out that lot and bookmark them where you see fit to stay up to date with all the best deals as they emerge.
Outside the Xbox One bubble, you'll also be able to find discounts on Microsoft's new Surface Pro, most notably $329 off the i5 Surface Pro 256GB model, and $229 off the 128GB model. Both of these come bundled with the tablets extra clicky 'Type Cover' keyboard, too. If the Surface Laptop is more your speed, you'll get a free Harman Kardon Invoke Cortana speaker thrown in when you purchase an i5 or i7 256GB model. If you only need the speaker, of course, you can buy that separately at the discounted price of $99. As mentioned previously, Microsoft is also offering Lenovo's Windows Mixed Reality Headset for $299, a discount of $100 off its regular cost.
