Looking for the ultimate holiday gift for gamers? See the best Black Friday deals on Xbox Series S, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and more. It’s a smart idea to get a deal on a new gaming console before Black Friday actually happens.
This holiday season, we anticipate supply chain issues that could cause shortages of some of the most popular items forecast to be giveaways, including Xbox Series S. We recommend doing your holiday shopping as early as possible to make sure you don’t miss out and can buy one before they sell out, as they may be out of stock for several months. Not sure which console is right for you? Take a look at this article outlining the PS5 and Xbox Series S to compare the two.
Since it was first released late last year, Xbox Series S has been hard to come by. The console received a lot of enthusiasm from gamers, but limited supplies made it difficult to find regularly. While it appears that major retailers, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart, regularly receive console resupply, there’s no telling how long they’ll last, especially with Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and holiday sales kick off earlier this year.
If you really want an Xbox Series S, don’t wait until Black Friday to buy it, especially if you’re going to give the console to your partner or kids. New game consoles have been hard to come by, and it’s unlikely to save a few extra dollars on Black Friday if the console isn’t under the tree on Christmas morning, especially if string issues supply came true as predicted.
