Thanks to Black Friday deals it's never been a better time to buy an Xbox console, and it's not just the US side of the pond enjoying great deals, I've found some cracking UK-based options for our Brit readers.
Surprisingly, the most deals I've seen have been on the Xbox Series X, which is the polar opposite of how the Black Friday deals went last year. We're only just now seeing reductions and better value bundles on the flagship console, but there's already a huge variety out there if you're in the market for one.
Let's kick things off with the compact dynamo, the Xbox Series S. As the smallest member of the Xbox family, this all-digital console packs a punch without breaking the bank. Whether you're a casual gamer or part of a gaming family, the Xbox Series S offers an affordable entry point into the next generation of gaming.
