Black Friday video game deals are an excellent way to save on a new console and stock up on games. We’ll take a look at the Xbox One Black Friday 2014 deals you can expect on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the weeks around this crazy shopping event.
We’re already hearing readers and friends ask, “Should I wait for Black Friday to buy the Xbox One? and “What Black Friday Xbox One deals can i expect?”
After very limited Black Friday Xbox One deals last year, we expect to see big discounts and bundles for Black Friday 2014.
Not only did Microsoft make this easier with a $100 cheaper Xbox One without Kinect, but the company is in a place where it needs to catch up to the PS4 this holiday season. A motivated company, a growing library of cheap games and plenty of consoles in stock should lead to a lot of Xbox One Black Friday 2014 deals.
We expect to see at least $50 off the $399 Xbox One, deals on Xbox One controllers and accessories like headsets as well as many Xbox One game deals on Black Friday 2014.
These predictions come from what we’ve seen throughout this year, on the Xbox 360 in earlier years and the current trends towards pricing. We’ve covered and shopping Black Friday for nearly a decade and hate paying full price for games, which is where we picked up on this knowledge.
Xbox One Black Friday 2014 Deals
There are two types of Xbox One Black Friday 2014 deals to look for; discounts in cash and discounts that bundle games, Xbox Live or gift cards.
When it comes to straight up cash discounts on Xbox One Black Friday 2014 deals you can expect to save at least $50 on the $399 Xbox One. We’re already hearing that Kmart will sell the Xbox One without Kinect for $350 a week before Black Friday, which sets the stage for similar or better deals during Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
There’s a chance you’ll see similar bargains on the Xbox One with Kinect, but it’s tough to tell exactly how much this will drop in price.
When it comes to bundles and gift card promotions you should see more value than the straight up cash discounts. Expect to see bundles offering at least two games for the $399 price and possibly with some type of gift card or Xbox Live card tossed in. These may not be the newest games, but it’s a good way to build the library. We could see current bundles like Madden 15 and others arrive with a gift card or discount promotion.
Bottom Line: Xbox One Black Friday 2014 deals will deliver at least $50 in savings, and potentially more.
If you see any Xbox One deals of $50 or more in savings in the run up to Thanksgiving and Black Friday, jump on that deal instead of chancing a long line or fast sell out on Black Friday.
