Xbox Series X gets RARE price cut in Black Friday deal

It's been a little over two years since the launch of the Xbox Series X and we're yet to see any big discounts on Microsoft's next-generation console. But with this Black Friday deal from BT Shop, you can get the 1TB model for GBP439 - GBP10 cheaper than you'll find it elsewhere and a rare price cut on one of the hottest properties in tech. That's not the best Black Friday Xbox deal BT Shop has, however.

For GBP469, you can get the 1TB console with an additional black wireless controller. Those controllers have an RRP of GBP55 but are typically found available for GBP40. Buy now from BT Shop

That means you're getting both the controller and console for a discounted price, and having a second controller is pretty much mandatory for all but the most hardcore solo gamers.

Even then, having a second controller means you can charge them alternately to avoid ever running out of juice. In our Xbox Series X review, we awarded Microsoft's latest console five stars and our coveted Best Buy badge, praising its ability to deliver 4K gaming at stable frame rates, blisteringly fast load times, and handy Quick Resume feature. Our main criticisms related to its high price, which still remains pertinent but slightly less so with this deal, and a limited library of games.

That library has expanded significantly in the two years since launch, with cross-platform titles such as Elden Ring and Assassin's Creed Valhalla complementing heavy-hitting console exclusives such as Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite. That pair of exclusives may not be a match for what Sony has for the PlayStation 5, but Microsoft has an ace up its sleeve in the form of the Xbox Game Pass. The company's subscription service provides access to a huge catalogue of older games, while also letting you play certain new releases on day one.

Xbox Live Gold and EA Play are also included in the Ultimate tier membership, which is currently available for GBP1 for the first month and GBP10.99/mth thereafter. There are also offers on the digital-only Xbox Series S, which can be bought for GBP189 or GBP229 with an additional white controller. While we can't guarantee that the Xbox Series X and Series S won't see further price cuts ahead of Christmas or in the New Year, BT Shop's prices are currently as good as it gets, and stock is going fast so act quickly to avoid missing out.
