It is not easy to find the latest batch of gaming consoles in stock. That only changed recently, and is only really for the Xbox Series S and Nintendo Switch OLED, both of which can be found in stock at various retailers. But right now, for the first time, you can grab the Xbox Series WILL on sale for $249.99, full $50 off MSRP. This deal is live at Woot, and it’s only available today as long as stocks last. If you can use one, now is the time to get it. This is the best Xbox Series S deal we’ve ever seen.
Xbox Series S: Save $50
Woot is owned by Amazon, and Amazon Prime members get free shipping under the deal (you can sign up here). Shipping, on the other hand, is $6, which still leaves it comfortably in “best Xbox Series S deals we’ve seen” territory.
Xbox Series S is the digital-only model of Microsoft’s latest generation of consoles. It can run all of the same games the Series X can, but it does so at lower resolutions, making it a good choice for those who aren’t planning on upgrading to a 4K TV anytime soon. . It also makes a good second console for those who may not have access to their main TV all the time (thankroommate/kids/etc).
As a digital-only console, the Series S is drive-free, meaning you can only play downloadable games on it. This works for a lot of people, especially if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass, which gives you access to a huge library of Xbox games, including all first-party titles on day one. That means you can play games like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5, plus tons of indies and third-party titles like The Sims 4 and Back 4 Blood (and other games, even. maybe games that don’t have the number four in the title).
This is the best deal we’ve seen on a new generation console. In fact, it is one of the only one transactions we have seen. So if you want it, grab it. It is unlikely to last long.
