Black Friday 2019: Best Xbox One Deals Announced During X019
The Black Friday sale is set to Xbox One games, consoles, and more.
Microsoft finally revealed its full slate of Black Friday 2019 Xbox One deals during its X019 livestream, with discounts on Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundles, wireless controllers, games, and more. The company's Black Friday deals kick off early for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold subscribers. On November 21, subscribers can log into the Microsoft Store's website or any Xbox One or Windows 10 device to take advantage of this year’s Black Friday deals. Everyone else will have to wait until November 24. All Black Friday deals are available until December 2.
Black Friday Xbox One deals
For starters, all Xbox One devices are getting discounts of up to $150 off. All Xbox One X console bundles will go for $350, while all Xbox One S bundles will be $100 off, with several of them now costing $200. This also means you can get the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition for $150--that system is bundled with digital codes for Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and bonus Fortnite content. Additionally, Xbox One controllers will see lowered prices with up to $20 off, while Design Lab controllers get a $10 discount.
Thankfully, if you want to be eligible for the early deals on November 21, you can take advantage of a Black Friday offer that's available to new Game Pass Ultimate subscribers right now. Microsoft is currently offering new subscribers their first three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for only $1. Ultimate bundles Game Pass for console and PC, in addition to Xbox Live Gold. New subscribers will also get six months of Spotify, as long as they're not already subscribed to the music-streaming service. On top fo that, new and existing subscribers get a free month of EA Access and three free months of Discord Nitro--like Spotify, you must also be new subscribers to both services.
Of course, a bunch of Xbox One games will be on sale, including first-party games like Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, and Sea of Thieves: Anniversary Edition. Third-party games, such as FIFA 20, NBA 2K20 Legends Edition, and Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition will also see discounts.
Xbox All Access returns
Microsoft also recently announced that the Xbox All Access program is back for another holiday season. Anyone who doesn't want to pay the full price for a console upfront can instead opt for a monthly payment plan. The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition goes for $20/month, the Xbox One S for $23/month, and the powerful Xbox One X for $31/month. Each option runs for 24 months and comes with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for the full duration of the plan.
The best part of this round of All Access is that you'll have the option to upgrade to Project Scarlett, the new Xbox console that is scheduled to arrive next holiday. Xbox One X All Access members will be eligible to upgrade after 12 months, but Xbox One S members will have to wait 18 months. All-Digital Edition members will also have to pay a $20 upgrade fee.
All upgrades must go through the retailer you purchased your original 24-month plan from, and you'll have to re-up to a new 24-month plan (with new terms and pricing). In the US, Amazon is currently the only retailer offering All Access--in the UK, customers can subscribe starting November 5 at Smyths and GAME.
