Whether you re looking for an opportunity to pick up the latest Xbox games for cheap, or grab an Xbox Series S bundle, Black Friday 2021 is very nearly here and is the perfect time to land a bargain. Here are all the best Xbox Black Friday deals we ve spotted so far..

Curious about what the Black Friday sales are like for other consoles? Make sure you check out our and PS5 Black Friday deals .

As expected, this year s Black Friday Xbox Series X deals have been sparse in the UK and US. The Xbox Series X is still out of stock from most retailers at the time of writing, and although the stock issues around the console are slowly starting to ease up, we re not seeing any major deals on the Xbox Series X this Black Friday sale.

The Xbox Series S is a lot easier to get a hold of, though, and we wouldn t be surprised to see Xbox incentivising purchases with the addition of a free Game Pass Ultimate subscription or something similar to create Xbox Series S bundles.

The Xbox Series X is currently out of stock but you can pick up an Xbox Series S from the links below. 

away for free with selected phone plans. Prices start from only £29 per month and include devices such as the Google Pixel 6, the Samsung A52s 5G and Oppo A54 5G.

Let s be honest: most of the games you d want to play are included with a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, and with a lot of titles such as Halo Infinite, Starfield and Back 4 Blood being made available on launch for subscribers, you ll want to take out a subscription (if you don t have one already, that is).

That said, there are still plenty of great third-party titles that may never end up being a part of the Game Pass line-up, and there s always going to be a demand for physical titles.

There have been some small discounts on official controllers so far this year, including the Elite controller for $139.99/ £149.99 at Microsoft.

Here are a few more controller deals we ve spotted in the UK:

One of the most coveted Xbox accessories is the Seagate Storage Expansion Card for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The Xbox Series X has an internal storage of 1TB while the Xbox Series S has 500GB internal storage. That may seem fairly big, but can fill up pretty quickly if you re downloading games using your Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Some of the biggest latest-gen Xbox titles require a minimum storage space of 100GB.

At the time of writing the Seagate Storage Expansion Card is the only internal storage expansion for the Series X and S that allows you to run games direct from storage. You can use external HDDs and SSDs with the consoles, but you won t be able to play the latest Xbox games on them – they only act as extra storage, so you ll still need to move games on and off your console.

If you re running out of storage on your Xbox X/S, you can pick one up from the links below.

Even if you spend just a couple of hours a week playing on your Xbox, it makes sense to pick up a Game Pass Ultimate subscription. If you re not familiar with Game Pass , it s essentially the gaming equivalent of Netflix, giving you access to over 100 Xbox titles for £10.99/$14.99 per month.

That may seem expensive if you compare it to the likes of Sony s PlayStation Plus subscription, but as well as getting access to the biggest Xbox titles at launch, you also get access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, allowing you to stream all of the titles on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on your smart phone, tablet or PC - as long as you ve got a supported device and decent internet connection.

If you re a new subscriber you can get your first-month Game Pass subscription for just £1/$1. To save some money, we d recommend turning that auto-renew function off and grabbing a subscription for cheap from the links below. Cheap Game Pass subscriptions often feature as part of the Xbox Black Friday deals. We ve created a list below with some of best deals so far.

If you live in the UK and you re with EE for your mobile phone contract, you can upgrade to for just £10 extra per month.

This year s Black Friday sale takes place on Friday 26 November but you ll be able to grab plenty of Xbox Black Friday deals before then.

A lot of retailers in the UK and US have announced their Black Friday promotions in advance of the big day, but some retailers put their Black Friday deals live as early as October.

One handy way to keep track of the news (plug plug) is to follow the  Jelly Deals Twitter account, where we’re posting all the latest stock updates for PS5s and Xbox Series X consoles, as well as the best deals and promotions from the world of video games and tech.
