Below, you’ll find the top 10 absolute best Xbox deals available this Black Friday weekend.

If any of the deals go out of stock or change price, we’ll update this page as soon as possible with another great deal in its place. Let’s get to it, shall we?

TL;DR – 10 Best Xbox Deals

These are the best of the best. Below, we’ll dig into why each selection deserves a spot on this list.

Call of Duty: Vanguard

Call of Duty is reliably the bestselling game each year. Vanguard brings players back to the WWII era, with the usual array of campaign, multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone modes. There’s a lot here to sink your teeth into, so if you want it, grab it before the deal goes away. The cross-gen version of the game was on sale for this price before selling out. If it comes back, we’ll put it here.

2. WD_BLACK 5TB Game Drive External HD

27% off $149.99

The internal storage that comes on an Xbox Series X or S probably won’t get you very far, especially if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (about which, see below). And while you can expand the consoles’ storage with the official expansion card from Samsung, you don’t get much storage for the price.

A better idea for most people is to get a cheap external drive, like this WD_BLACK Game Drive. It gives you 5TB of extra storage. While you can’t play Series X-optimized games from it, you can store them there for a quick transfer to onboard storage when you want to play them. And you can store and play all the previous-gen Xbox games.

3. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

One of the most overlooked games of the year, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is way better than most people expected. Perhaps Marvel’s Avengers lowered expectations, but this isn’t a live service game like that. This is a single-player experience from start to finish, with some of the best characters and snappiest dialogue of any game all year. Do yourself a favor and give it a try.

4. Xbox Wireless Controllers (Assorted Colors)

Playing games with friends is always fun. It’s also fun to have a splash of color in your gaming setup. For Black Friday at Walmart, you can grab official wireless Xbox controllers in an assortment of special colors for $49 each. That’s a cool $15 off the MSRP. Pick the color you like best and grab this deal before it’s gone.

5. Mass Effect Legendary Edition

Mass Effect Legendary Edition

The Mass Effect trilogy is one of the most ambitious video game projects ever undertaken. It tells an epic, galaxy-spanning story about a group of unforgettable characters. And your choices really do change the course of the games. This edition comes with all the single-player content from all three entries, plus DLC, with upgraded 4K visuals and improved controls and UI. This is the definitive edition of these phenomenal games.

6. Far Cry 6

Far Cry 6

Far Cry 6 has pitch-perfect FPS controls and drops you on a massive map to explore at your leisure. You’ll take missions from memorable characters, overtake enemy outposts, and pet an adorable dog named Chorizo. What’s not to love? Plus, it just came out and it’s already on sale for $35. That’s a very good deal.

7. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – 3-Month Subscription

3 Months Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Even at full price, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is one of the best deals in gaming. It gets you access to online games, plus several games a month you can keep and play as long as you’re a member, plus access to a treasure trove of great titles — including all first-party Microsoft games. That means you can play Forza Horizon 5 at no additional cost. You’ll be able to play Halo Infinite’s campaign the day it comes out (December 8). It’s an incredible deal, especially on sale for $24.99.

Btw, this stacks up to 36 months, so even if you’re already a member, you can add three months for cheap right now. Get it. Enjoy it.

8. Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller

Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller

The best thing about this high-end controller is how customizable it is. It comes with all kinds of parts you can swap in and out, including multiple thumbsticks as well as paddles on the back you can assign to any button. You can also set hair triggers to give you quicker reaction times and adjust the tension on the analog sticks. It’s all about tweaking the controller to your exact liking.

9. NBA 2K22

NBA 2K22

The Xbox Series X version of this game typically costs $69.99, but both it and the Xbox One versions are on sale right now for $26. This is a killer deal on the best basketball game on the market. It comes with all the standard modes, from MYCAREER to MYLEAGUE, plus additional real-life NBA and WNBA locations.

65" LG C1 4K HDR OLED TV

28% off $2,499.99

Last but certainly not least is a great deal on one of our very favorite TVs for gaming, sports, and pretty much anything else you want to watch at home. It comes with an absurdly gorgeous screen, with HDR and true colors and true blacks. It also has four HDMI 2.1 ports, so it can take full advantage of all the high-end features of the Xbox Series X (and PS5 if you have one of those). This is the TV to get.
