What to expect
We are expecting to see various Xbox One models and bundles available at discounted prices this year. With the Xbox One S serving as the entry-level Xbox One variant, we can expect the system to be heavily discounted in time for the holiday season. As far as controllers go, several Xbox One controllers are confirmed to see some decent price cuts, including some rare and limited edition controllers. Of course, Microsoft has its own first-party high-end controller in the form of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. In the past, however, the controller has rarely seen a price cut, but with the release of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, it would be no surprise if Microsoft decided to discount the first generation Elite controller for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Although, we are not expecting the discount to be steep; ideally, it would be great to see the console for $300 or under, but if the console was to receive a sound price reduction, Microsoft would likely reduce the price by at least $100.
Great deals we saw last year
Last year, the Xbox One S saw a significant price cut, with the console being available for under $200. Aside from that, there were not a lot of eye-catching deals. However, some blockbuster titles were spotted with a price reduction such as Forza Horizon 4 and State of Decay 2. Several color variations of the Xbox One’s controller were also on sale, including thefor $50.
Xbox One deals going on now
Several retailers have started putting out some pre-Black Friday deals for Microsoft’s eighth-generation console. Specifically, Amazon is taking the lead on stellar Xbox One deals pre-Black Friday with numerous consoles and controllers available at competitive prices. Additionally, you can pick up the limited edition.
You can count on saving money on a stock Xbox One or opt for something a bit higher in specs with the Xbox One X. There are also great deals on the Xbox One S, which falls somewhere right in the middle in terms of its capabilities.
