@NEStalgia as @Eel I definitely recommend turning off the auto renew as I too have noticed that makes a difference when trying to get the next deal. Also and this is extremely YMMV, some places will actually price match the Microsoft promos from my experience. Of course that's highly dependent on where/who you're dealing with but I've gotten it a couple times. Saving money on gaming is like a game in itself for me lol

@Eel Huh, that's interesting!

@redd214 Haha, yeah it seems like it's own mini-game. I wish Ultimate and Pass weren't in 3-month increments. That makes it a bit harder to deal-grab than the 1-year subs for Live alone. I think they introduced 1 year Pass subs at one point, but only digitally through MS. I'll have to keep my eyes open. Gaming the 3-month expiration I feel is something I'll fail at more often than succeed with

Yeah, seems as though $350 with either Gears 5 or NBA 2K20 is the cheapest the Xbox One X bundle will get during this year's Black Friday. With Xbox Scarlett less than a year away I can't justify spending that much on a dying platform. It's fair to assume that the X will go on clearance at some point in 2020. MS can't possibly hold the X at this price point for an entire year.

@Magician The X is quite expensive to manufacture because of the advanced cooling system, etc. I don't know how cheaper it can get but it's been a while and the big discounts are always applied on S consoles.

@Magician best deal on the X is @ Kohls. $350 for the bundle and you get $105 back in store credit.

@Magician My guess is X holds its price until after Scarlett is out. It's still the "most powerful" currently available console after all.

And we still don't actually know if X gets positioned as the "budget XBox" with the ability to play Scarlett games at lower specs rather than as a "prior" gen system. MS does seem dedicated to putting their games on any system regardless of power (see Switch.) Everyone thought that was the case, and then everyone thought that wasn't the case...but we really won't know much until E3. They're all about ecosystems but we don't know what ecosystem exactly they intend to build yet.

When was Black Friday on Xbox.com last year? I can't wait to see the latest digital sale.

@BlueOcean November 18th. This year's deals start tomorrow for Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers by the way.

@Grumblevolcano OK, so this year is later because of the X019 event that had a 24 hours deal or whatever. The important thing is that Black Friday on Xbox.com (and on consoles) starts tomorrow.

With Game Pass, I'm not even sure I'm looking for anything on the Black Friday sale this year. I think most of the new games I want to play are on Pass

@NEStalgia That's right but after playing Crash Team Racing on Switch and having a lot of fun but being annoyed by the low resolution I would like to get the Xbox One X version. It's beautiful... but not on Switch All the other games I want are coming to Game Pass.

The sales are live now. Crash Team Racing has a 35% discount on both editions (at least on my end).

Hmm it says the sale isn't live in the UK yet. Do they have different launch time?

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@Dezzy

Do you have Gold? It starts on Sunday for those without.

Ner I'm too sporadic in my gaming practices to bother with subscriptions. Just normal purchases.

Some really great prices on the Black Friday sale!

I’m gonna get at least REmake 2, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Devil May Cry 5, Far Cry: New Dawn, and the DLC bundle for Forza Horizon 4. I will probably splurge on some other games too.
