With the recent leak of the Walmart Black Friday flyer, most of the major retailers and Black Friday sales have been revealed, including those for gamers looking for the best deals on an Xbox One console bundle.
Here's a roundup of the best discounts at Amazon, Target, Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart.
Let's start with GameStop, which has initiated a simple method of determining your Black Friday discount. GameStop is offering $50 off the price of any Xbox One bundle, regardless of the size or games involved. That will make the 1 TB Elite Bundle with the Elite Controller $449 as opposed to the usual price of $499. Those opting for the 500 GB console can score the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition bundle for $299, along with other 500 GB Xbox bundles in-store.
Best Buy is offering a similar $50 savings deal on Xbox One bundles, with the Xbox One Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition bundle at $299 and Rise of The Tomb Raider Xbox One bundle at $349.99. The retailer also has a combo deal on a 40-inch Samsung LED TV, together with an Xbox One The LEGO Moviebundle for $499.98, a pretty good deal if you're looking for both a console and a set to play it on.
Target looks to be the best bet of all if you're looking for one of the lower-priced 500 GB bundles, as the retailer is offering the same standard $50 savings as its competitors on the Xbox One Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition bundle, at $299, but the company is upping the ante big time with a $60 gift card, bringing the constructive price down to just $239.
Walmart's Black Friday flyer was the last to be revealed, and the big box store is also throwing in a gift card with a $299 price on the Xbox One Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition bundle, but this card has a $30 value, making the constructive price $269.
While Amazon has only released limited details so far regarding their Black Friday deals, the online retailer has already been offering free games and $50 gift cards with the purchase of many bundles, a policy that is very likely to continue as Black Friday approaches. We'll keep you posted on any new announcements on Black Friday deals for other Xbox One bundles as they emerge.
