“Should I buy the Xbox One now or wait for the Xbox One Black Friday 2015 deals to start?” We’ll explain how much you can expect to save with the Xbox One Black Friday deals and what to expect in other areas of the 2015 Black Friday ads.
Anyone still looking to buy a new console is asking themselves this question right now. It’s even tougher considering Halo 5 is out and Fallout 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 are coming out in early November before Black Friday 2015.
We saw an uptick in Xbox One Black Friday deals last year and with more bundles than most of us can keep track of and a heated race with the PS4 — count on amazing Xbox One Black Friday 2015 deals.
After covering Black Friday for almost a decade and staying on top of Xbox One deals throughout the year, we have a great idea what retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon and others will offer on Black Friday 2015.
Here’s a closer look at what you can expect from the Xbox One Black Friday 2015 deals — including one that already leaked.
Xbox One Black Friday 2015 Deals
If you find a Xbox One Black Friday 2015 deal that is just for the console and a bundled game, you can expect to pay $299 — savings of $50. However, there are plenty of other big deals that we think will sweeten the offerings for Black Friday 2015.
We’ve already shared one Xbox One Black Friday 2015 deal that hits the $299 price with an extra controller, Gears of War Ultimate Edition and Fallout 4. That’s a major deal and it is online from Dell so there is no camping out.
We also expect to see the Xbox One or the PS4 on the front of the Walmart Black Friday 2015 ad if the company sticks with the 1 Hour Guaranteed In Stock promise like they have for the past several years.
Bottom Line: Expect a $299 Xbox One Black Friday 2015 deal and count on added games and accessories to sweeten the deal.
Xbox One Black Friday 2015 Game Deals
On Black Friday 2015 you can also count on big deals on games that chop $10 to $30 off games that arrived in 2015. This includes recent releases like Fallout 4, Halo 5 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 which will likely be $45 to $50.
Count on Madden 16, FIFA 16, sports games and other games that arrived in July or later to fall into the $40 price bracket.
Anything from the start of the year will be $30 or lower and there will be plenty of other discounts throughout the gaming catalog.
These are deals on new games and they will be available online and in store. We may see some digital Xbox One Black Friday game deals on Xbox Live, but the biggest savings are often on disks.
Bottom Line: Save $10 to $15 on games that just came out and up to $30 on games that arrived this year.
Xbox One Accessory Black Friday 2015 Deals
If you need a second controller, a new gaming headset or a Xbox Live subscription — Black Friday 2015 is the time to buy.
Count on $10 to $15 off the basic Xbox One controller online and at most retailers in the Black Friday ads. It’s possible, but not likely, that we will see some kind of deal on the new Xbox One Elite Controller.
The best Xbox One accessory to buy during Black Friday 2015 is a subscription to Xbox Live. This is required to play games online with the Xbox One and includes some other benefits as well. You can expect to see one-year subscriptions for 50% off or lower online and in store.
Another popular Xbox One accessory that goes on sale during Black Friday 2015 is a gaming headset. There are many options including Microsoft’s own, Turtle Beach, Astro and others that will likely see big price cuts in stores and online. Keep an eye on Amazon where there are routinely Lightning deals on gaming headsets during Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
