Xbox Black Friday deal: Save $50 on the Xbox Series X console and get a $50 Amazon credit

Microsoft’s Xbox Series X has received a rare discount for Black Friday. Until the end of the weekend, Amazon is selling the 1TB model for $449, or $50 off MSRP. Although not a record low for the Series X (Amazon sold the console for about $10 less this past summer), this is still a great opportunity to purchase the most powerful system in Microsoft’s stable. That’s because the retailer is also including $50 credit toward future Amazon purchases. Once the company ships the Series X to your home, you can expect to receive the credit in your email inbox within 24 hours.

The Xbox Series X is the most powerful gaming console on the market, and though it would be nice to see Microsoft secure more exclusives for the system, it would be hard to argue that the Series X doesn’t have a lot going for it. With about 12 teraflops of processing power, the latest Xbox can play games at 4K and up to 120 frames per second, with full HDR support built-in. Provided you own a suitably high-end TV with HDMI 2.1 connectivity, the Series X will deliver some of the best console graphics on the market today.

And while most would probably agree Sony’s PlayStation 5 has the more compelling exclusives, particularly for those who enjoy narrative-focused titles, the Xbox has plenty of must-play games too. Between releases like Starfield, Forza Motorsport and Halo Infinite, there’s something for everyone in Microsoft’s ninth-generation library. When you add Game Pass to the mix, and the fact all of Microsoft’s first-party titles are available on the service straight from day one, there’s a good chance you won’t need to buy many games at full price. That makes the console, especially when it’s discounted like it is this weekend, a great value for all but the most discerning gamers.
