Best Xbox One Black Friday Bundle Deals As Low As $239

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.

ADVERTISING

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.

As reported on Tech Times

Gamestop's Black Friday Sale Ad LEAKS

Though there still has not been any comment from retailer GameStop whether the rumored deals are true, observers are considering the possible truth in what apparently is a leaked image showing the upcoming Black Friday Sale deals from the company.

According to industry follower Gamespot, the ad first appeared at Bfads.net, and now even third-party discount sites like BlackFriday have treated the leaked image as an ad scan. If the deals shown in the image are true, then gaming fans and hardcore players alike will have a chance to score some massive deals on GameStop's Black Friday Event.

Highlighted on the discount ad are the console bundles for both Xbox One and PS4. For about $300 each, players can take advantage of the packaged 500-GB Xbox One and "Gears of War Ultimate Bundle," as well as a 500-GB PlayStation 4 and the "Uncharted Collection Bundle."

For Nintendo fans, there is also a GameStop exclusive Ike Amiibo on sale for $13. The flyer also indicates that some rare Amiibo figurines are already back on stock in the retailer's shop, although the ad does not indicate which rare figures would be made available. However, as the Black Friday Sale event is for both brick-and-mortar stores and the online GameStop shop, fans who may not make it to the sale can check out the available discounted figures, as well as other items, on the GameStop website.

To celebrate the new addition to the "Star Wars" games franchise, the Black Friday Sale event will also have a "Star Wars: Battlefront" savings bundle. Every purchase of the new "Star Wars" title will give buyers $30 off on one of the five Electronic Arts games – "Madden NFL 16," "FIFA 16," "NHL 16," "Dragon Age: Inquisition," and the new "Need for Speed" reboot.

According to the ad, the GameStop Black Friday event will happen from Nov. 27 until Sunday, Nov. 29.

Titanfall: The best looking game on the 360

Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is a gorgeous game. A truly beautiful, fluid experience. And as a recent videos posted online show, it looks almost exactly like it's Xbox One counterpart. I know, you are saying, "It's supposed to isn't it? It's supposed to be as close of an experience as possible." That's very true. But when we are talking about Titanfall, the game that was supposed to be the reason to buy an Xbox One. The "System Seller". And in it's own right, Titanfall is an absolutely, fantastically fun, engaging and just plain FUN game. It is worth every single spent on it by gamers. However, with such minute difference between the Xbox 360 and XBO versions, can you really call it a "System Seller"? Are people really ready to invest in an XBO for just slightly better textures and framerate than the 360 version? Having watched a number of these pre-release copies in motion, and looking at screenshots, I can't imagine the small differences in the XBO version warrant it's $500 price tag. But hey, I am not rolling in spare cash. See for yourself. 

Microsoft appoints the man who wrecked Nokia to head up Xbox One and Surface

Is Elop the right man for THIS job?

Is Elop the right man for THIS job?

In an interesting development at Microsoft, the company has appointed former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop to the head position over the "Devices and Studios" group. This position puts him in charge of all development not only for the Surface, but also for the Xbox One.

 

While it was a given that Microsoft was going to find a place for the former Nokia chief within the company, it is interesting that they put him in charge of what are essentially the 2 most important products Microsoft makes. While the Surface is finally beginning to see some appreciable sales numbers after the launch of the Surface Pro 2, the Xbox One, is not faring as well. Microsoft's next gen entry in the gaming space has failed to gain the traction it has needed in the marketplace, running a very distant 2nd place to their direct competitor the Playstation 4. This, despite having launched in more markets. While Elop, 50, has seen his fair share of praise for some decisions at Nokia, the risk this decision poses for Microsoft is real. Wikipedia puts it best:

"During the 3 years Elop was Nokia CEO, Nokia revenues fell 40%, Nokia profits fell 95%, Nokia market share collapsed in smartphones from 34% to 3.4%, Nokia’s credit rating went from A to junk, Nokia’s share price dropped 60% in value and Nokia’s market capitalization lost 13 Billion dollars in value. The Financial Times calculated that Nokia shareholders ended up paying Elop a bonus of 1 million Euros for every 1.5 billion in market capital that Elop was able to destroy while Nokia CEO.”

Where we go from here is anyone's guess, but speaking from the angle of the Xbox's current market position, it's going to be all uphill from here...

Metal Gear Solid V to run in 1080p on PS4, 720p for XBO

A video resolution demo page posted by Konami for their upcoming Metal Gear Solid V, shows the differing visuals for the game running on The Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and the XBO. The game looks great, and the majority of the differences in visuals are ones we would expect, aside from one big one: The chart at the bottom of the page shows that the game will only be able to run at 720p on the XBO in order to maintain proper framerate. MGSV will run at a full 1080p @ 60fps on the PS4. Konami's page is designed to give an idea of the general look of the game on each system, so they are careful not to show the same exact scene on each in order to avoid direct product comparisons. Which in it's own right is a smart move, as Konami wants the game to see well across the board, all platforms included.

The launch of the XBO & PS4 systems saw many flame wars on message boards and blogs related to the differences between the visuals on both next gen systems as being minute, only marginal and at times referred to as almost indistinguishable. But as time has gone on since the launch, the differences in processing power and visuals has been clearly identified. And in the past 2 months, we have continued to see proof of the areas in which the PS4 simply out paces the XBO visually and in processing power. MGSV has now become the 2nd game that the developer themselves have identified before launch as not performing as well on the XBO. 

And as developers continue to improve and get better with development, the divide will potentially get wider.
