Normally I wouldn’t highlight a deal this quickly after already featuring it but given how big this is we have to make sure you’re kept in the know.

About an hour ago we let you know that Walmart had the Xbox Series X available through Xbox All-Access, and it still has it available right now! If you saw that post and thought “Ah, I’m too late” you’re not.

The ‘Shop Now’ button is still blue and clickable suggesting the Series X is still on sale – as a UK resident I can’t 100% verify this as I can’t apply for a US credit check but earlier when the stock was unavailable it was grayed out.

All-Access won’t be for everyone though, while this phone contract-style payment system is slightly cheaper than buying the Xbox outright (provided you also get a 24-month Game Pass Ultimate subscription) and might be a more convenient payment option, for many people has All-Access has its downsides.

For one it is a new line of credit, so in the short term, it will negatively impact your credit rating – and if you miss any payments your rating will get hit too. If you’re after a mortgage you may want to hold off this time. 

It also locks you into paying $34.99/month for 24 months – you can’t cancel your Ultimate subscription later and save money. If you’re worried that this might be too much for you to pay in the future then you might prefer the Xbox Series S subscription for $24.99/month or, again, this might not be the right deal for you.

If you’re desperate to get an Xbox Series X or Series S today then this is the best option available though if  All-Access isn’t right for you, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to snatch up this sought-after console.


Far Cry 6

As we head into the holiday season you’ll likely find yourself taking refuge from the cold by staying inside; so what better way is there to while away your time than by playing some of the latest and greatest games? And if you just picked up an Xbox Series X through the All-Access deal at Walmart then you’ll want something to put your new hardware to good use too.

If you’re after an action-adventure game that’s sure to keep you busy for hundreds of hours as you explore its virtual world why not pick up Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? It’s currently down to $19.99 at Amazon in the US, and Smyths in the UK is selling it for £24.99 through Click & Collect.

Maybe you want to feel like a superhero after watching the recently released Hawkeye show on Disney Plus or as you gear up for Spider-Man: No Way Home when it releases in late December. If that’s the case I recommend playing Marvel’s Avengers – while it has its issues you can get the game for $9.99 at Amazon if you’re in the US, UK residents can get it for just £13.84 at Amazon too. It’s more than worth this price of admission.

Want something that was released more recently? Well, You can currently get the digital version of Far Cry 6 for $39.99 at Amazon right now. If you head to Smyths in the UK you can get Far Cry 6 for £34.99 (down from £54.99). Far Cry 6 is quite possibly the greatest in Ubisoft’s long-running open-world shooter series and the perfect junk food game.

Hitman 3

You could also try Hitman 3, the final entry in the World of Assassination Trilogy. If you’re into puzzle games this is one that is sure to scratch your itch even it doesn’t look like one that would at first glance – trying to find creative ways to eliminate your various targets and leave the level without getting caught is a delightful challenge to work your way trough. Walmart has it for $39.42 (not a sale price but cheaper than we saw at Amazon) and you can grab it from Smyths for £24.99 (£23-off) in the UK.

Last but not least we have Sonic Colors: Amazon will sell you this remaster of a modern classic for $19.99 in the US (you can buy it now but will have to wait for new stock to arrive) while those of you in the UK can get Sonic Colors for £24.99  (instead of £34.99). If you’re after something more family-friendly or are a fan of the blue blur this is a great game to pick up while it’s on offer.

GO, GO, GO! The Xbox Series X is currently live at Walmart through Xbox All-Access.

Over 24-months you pay $34.99 a month and get an Xbox Series X (which you can keep when the contract is up) as well as Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – it’s like a phone contract.

If you’re planning to get both anyway this is a fairly cost-effective way of nabbing an Xbox Series X – buying the Xbox outright and getting an Ultimate subscription would cost you $859.75, while this deal only costs you $839.76. It’s a small saving but $20 can nab you one of the discounted games in this blog.

Hey everybody! You thought that just because Black Friday and Cyber Monday were over that we’d be done hunting down deals? Well think again.

Here in the UK (where I’m writing from) it’s 10:45 on a Tuesday, but it appears that some retailers don’t have a calendar as plenty of deals and offers are still running. 

You could scroll down through this long, long list and click through to see if they’re still active, or I could do that that for you and share the ones that are still available right now. 

Starting with console deals you can currently get this excellent Xbox Series S Fortnite and Rocket League bundle which is currently $299.99 at GameStop in the US. If you’re in the UK you’ll have to preorder it from Game for £249.99 – with the new stock set to arrive on December 13.

The bundle includes an Xbox Series S console (which alone goes for £249.99/$299), an Xbox Wireless Controller, as well as the Fortnite Midnight Drive Pack Set (which includes skins and 1,000 V-Bucks) as well as Rocket League content (including 1,000 Rocket League Credits). These free-to-play games are an absolute blast – but if you aren’t interested you could sell these codes (unused of course) on a site like eBay or to a friend and make some money back.

Alternatively, you could opt for an Xbox All-Access subscription – Xbox Series Xs aren’t available currently but Walmart has Series S stock in the US  as does Game in the UK.

Over 24-months you pay $24.99 / £20.99 per month and you’ll get an Xbox Series S console and 24 months of Game Pass. The total cost over the period is $599.76 / £503.76 meaning that you actually save a little bit if you were planning to buy both anyway – and at the end of the period, the Xbox is yours to keep.

In the US you’ll save a respectable $59.99 – roughly the price of a new game – while in the UK you’ll save £10.01. Despite the savings to be had we’d recommend thinking about All-Access before diving in as it could impact your credit and ability to borrow money (so if you’re looking to get a mortgage soon you might want to hold off).

If you’re in the UK one option could be to buy the Xbox outright and then use the current Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deals that allows new subscribers to get their first month for just $1/£1. This would save you £9.99 compared to paying the full price of both meaning that you’re only 2p off the saving you achieve with All-Access and you aren’t tied into a contract – you can cancel your Ultimate subscription at any time.

Last but not least we have Xbox accessory sales that are still on right now.

Is your game library swelling thanks to those game sales? The Samsung T5 2TB external SSD is $199.99 at GameStop right now. If that’s too much, the Samsung T5 1TB SSD is $119.99 at GameStopbut I think paying $70 for double the capacity is more than worth it, personally. In the UK, the 2TB model isn’t available, but you can still save on the Samsung T5 1TB external SSD which is £107.90 at Amazon.

If you want an extra controller the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 is just $157.99 (though it was $139.99 yesterday). In the UK you can pick it up for £159.43 at Amazon

To get the most out of a Game Pass Ultimate you could get the Razer Kishi. The Android-compatible version is currently discounted to just $44.99 at Amazon.com (down from $79.99) - while at Amazon.co.uk it’s £56.99 (instead of £89.99).

The Xbox Wireless Headset is just $88.99 at GameStop, which is $11 off the asking price. Considering it’s hard to find Microsoft’s headset in stock, this deal makes things all the sweeter and is totally worth it. The Xbox Wireless Headset is £89.99 at Currys with free next-day delivery, which is one of the few UK retailers to have it in stock. 

Looking to game in comfort? Amazon UK is offering 15% off Anda Seat’s Kaiser Series Pro gaming chair, bringing its value down from £349.99 to £297.50, meanwhile this Razer Iskur gaming chair is marked down from $499.99 to $379.99 in the US.

You can also get the Spider-Man-themed gaming chair I use at a huge discount as it’s currently under half-price at the official AndaSeat store in the US as well as AndaSeat’s UK site.

If you want to dress like a gamer there’s a sale at the official Xbox merch store in the US and UK. Use code XBOXBF15 for 15%-off if you spend over $75, or spend over $150 and get 20-off with code XBOXBF20.

Well everybody I think it’s time for me to head off. Unfortunately, that means our Xbox deals coverage for Black Friday and Cyber Monday will also be taking a break too.

If you’re only just finding this page be sure to scroll down as while we won’t post anything new you’ll still find plenty of great offers below on Xbox consoles, controllers, gaming chairs, headsets and more. Some products may have sold out now, but a lot of deals are set to last the rest of Cyber Monday and may stick around a while longer.

Before I leave I have one last treat to share with you though. This deal will net you a decent-sized saving on a game that was only released a month ago – it’s an instant classic and a game you’ll certainly want to try out.

The Xbox game My Friend Peppa Pig is currently down 43% to just $24.99 at Amazon in the US, and UK customers can get the game for £29.64. By all accounts this title is a faithful adaptation of the source material – it feels like you’re really starring in an episode of the hit TV show.

And with that, I’m gone! Good luck with your Cyber Monday shopping everyone – I think there are a few deals I need to pick up myself while I can…


An official poster for Marvel Studios' Hawkeye TV show on Disney Plus

Who here has Disney Plus? I’ve recently been watching Hawkeye – the new TV show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and I am loving it!

Did you know that the archer and his apprentice Kate Bishop (who also stars in the new Disney Plus show) appear as free DLC in Marvel’s Avengers? The game is currently on Game Pass – new subscribers can get their first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1/£1 – but you can also buy the game outright.

If you want to feel like a superhero you can head over to Amazon.com in the US and buy Marvel’s Avengers for just $14.99 (that’s 63%-off). Amazon.co.uk also has a similar offer, Marvel’s Avengers in the UK is down to £13.84 (a 45% price drop).

Marvel’s Avengers didn’t get the best reviews but personally, I thought it was fun despite the issues. With free DLC now adding Kate Bishop, Hawkeye, and Black Panther to the roster of Marvel superheroes – each with their own story missions too – there’s plenty of great stuff to play through and at this discounted price it’s more than worth it to pick the game up.

Not a deal this time but a reminder that you should check out the Xbox Museum to celebrate the console’s 20-year anniversary!

It gives you a chance to not only explore the console’s history but you can also look back on your time playing on every generation of Xbox and the Achievements you’ve earned along the way. 

2017 and 2020 were big years for me, so many chivos were won!

As this is a deals blog I should post one though… how about this offer that gets you money off everything at the official Xbox merch store in the US and UK – including the anniversary apparel.

Use code XBOXBF15 for 15%-off if you spend over $75, or spend over $150 and get 20-off with code XBOXBF20.


AndaSeat Spider-Man Gaming Chair

If you’re like me your Xbox console sits proudly alongside the rest of your home cinema setup – when you boot it up you lay back on the sofa and put your feet up for a while.

Though I’m sure plenty of you play from gaming chairs that provide supreme comfort – and can double as comfy office chairs when you’re working from home.

I have one of these beautiful Spider-Man-themed gaming chairs (because I am an 8-year-old in a 23-year-old’s body) – and it’s currently under half-price at the official AndaSeat store in the US as well as AndaSeat’s UK site.

If you want something sleeker you should check out the deals at our Cyber Monday gaming chairs deals live blog. Our writer Tom has had to head off but many of the deals he shared are still available.

Amazon UK is offering 15% off Anda Seat’s Kaiser Series Pro gaming chair, bringing its value down from £349.99 to £297.50, meanwhile this Razer Iskur gaming chair is marked down from $499.99 to $349.99 in the US.


Great gadget gifts to give PC gamers that gaming edge

(Image credit: Microsoft)

For everyone who already has an Xbox Series X (or a Series X or an Xbox One for that matter) one thing you might want is a new premium controller that’s as good as your shiny console.

I’m of course talking about the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller. This fully customizable controller gives you options for additional paddles, shorter hair trigger locks and has rubberized grips that are sure to give you an edge in online multiplayer and punishing single-player adventures.

I spotted this deal on Amazon that gets you the Elite Series 2 for $157.99 (a respectable $22 saving) however you can get it better elsewhere if you’re okay missing out on next-day Prime delivery.

Right now the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 is just $139.99 at the official Xbox store. We posted this deal yesterday but I’m sharing it again to let you know it’s still active and it’s one you should be paying attention to if you’re after a top-quality gaming experience.

Guess who’s back? It’s Hamish here with the Xbox deals.

So firstly, how did everyone do with the Walmart restocks? Well done to those that successfully bought one and commiserations to everyone who was unsuccessful this time around – I know your pain. 

I have some advice for everyone in that latter group though if you already have a Walmart Plus membership you might want to try checking the page again. I can’t promise success but as payments get declined and carts are automatically emptied stock might briefly appear again.

If you aren’t already a Walmart Plus member I wouldn’t recommend signing up now just to check – as your chances of success are slim – but existing members might just get lucky. 


Cheap TV deals: OLED TV

(Image credit: LG)

Here’s something I’m strangely passionate about – LG OLED TVs. After plasma televisions were slowly replaced by LCD panels, things were never quite the same until OLED TVs came into the picture, but they were prohibitively expensive for a number of years.

If you’ve never seen an LG OLED in action, that’s probably a good thing, because no other TVs can compare, honestly. The perfect blacks, vivid colors, and gamer-focused settings mean there’s really no competition to the LG OLEDs in my opinion, and the LG CX is currently available for a ludicrously low price in the UK.

Costco members can get the LG OLED 55 CX for £859.99 with code BF10 while stocks last. This is a phenomenal price on one of the best TVs ever made and one that lets you take full advantage of the Xbox Series X’s feature set. 

While it isn’t the latest model, the differences between the LG CX and LG C1 are minimal at best. If you own an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, the LG CX delivers 4K at 120Hz, freesync, and is now capable of playing games using Dolby Vision. It’s so perfect in fact, that I bought one last year and yeah, it’s perfect in every way.

In the US, the LG CX and C1 are hard to find, but Best Buy does have a variety of televisions on sale to suit all types of budgets. 


Xbox Wireless Headset Black Friday deal

(Image credit: Future)

So… did you manage to snag an Xbox Series X from Walmart? Congratulations if so, because I just found your next purchase. The best Xbox Series X headset on the market when it comes to price and performance is now on sale, and I’m sure it won’t stay in stock long. 

The Xbox Wireless Headset is just $88.99 at GameStop, which is $11 off the asking price. Considering it’s hard to find Microsoft’s headset in stock, this deal makes things all the sweeter and is totally worth it. The Xbox Wireless Headset is £89.99 at Currys with free next-day delivery, which is one of the few UK retailers to have it in stock. 

I was blown away by just how good Microsoft’s official cans sound in my Xbox Wireless Headset review. Here’s what I had to say: “Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless Headset is an exceptional gaming headset that’s brimming with features and clever design decisions. It offers phenomenal audio performance for the price, and it can be completely customized to suit your listening preference. If you’re after a pair of wireless headphones to go with your new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, the Xbox Wireless Headset should be top of your list.”

The beauty of this headset is that it’ll also work on Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, and Xbox Series S. You can also use it on PC via Bluetooth or the Xbox Wireless Adapter, and listen to your phone audio while gaming at the same time which I fricking LOVE. Grab this deal while you can.

Right, I don’t want anyone to panic, but Walmart’s Xbox Series X restock takes place at 12 pm ET / 9 am PT. You need to be a Walmart Plus member, which costs $12.95, as this is a members-only offer. You can sign up here.

I’ve included the links you’ll need below, but remember to be patient, open a window on your browser and your phone (if you can), and don’t dawdle for a second longer than you have to if you make it to checkout.

Good luck, I believe in you.


Samsung T5

Good morning, afternoon, and evening, gamers! It’s Adam Vjestica, here – TechRadar’s Senior Gaming Writer. I’m back looking after the Xbox live blog to bring you the latest and greatest deals over Cyber Monday, so let’s get started, shall we?

I’ve spotted a super storage deal for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S users. The Samsung T5 2TB external SSD is $199.99 at GameStop right now. If that’s too much, the Samsung T5 1TB SSD is $119.99 at GameStop, but I think paying $70 for double the capacity is more than worth it, personally.

In the UK, the 2TB model isn’t available, but you can still save on the Samsung T5 1TB external SSD which is £108.99 at Amazon. I can personally recommend this drive as I actually own two of them myself. Typically, I’m sure I paid more than that last year, so grab this deal while you can.

Sinking your teeth into Forza 5? If you want to feel a little closer to all that burnt rubber, get yourself an Xbox-friendly steering wheel.

Over at Amazon UK, you can pick up the Logitech G920 Driving Force Racing Wheel (finished in leather, with floor Pedals, force feedback and stainless steel paddle shifters) for just £269.99 – £30 cheaper than its usual asking price.

There’s a slight catch though – this one won’t be first off the starting blocks, as stock isn’t set to come in until January 6, 2022. So a bit of a wait, but if you can keep your motor running, it’ll be a nice new year treat for you.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate value

There are few better deals in all of gaming land than what’s offered by the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, with its giant catalogue of games to download and stream across PC and Xbox consoles – even when it’s at full price.

So it’s easy to recommend these US and UK savings for three month’s worth of access to the service at Target and ShopTo respectively:

US – 3 months Game Pass Ultimate: $24.99 at Target (usually $44.99)

UK – 3 months Game Pass Ultimate: £24.85 at ShopTo (usually £29.99)

NBA2K22

Coming straight out of three point land is this bargain offer on the best basketball game out there, NBA 2K22.

It’s usually priced up at $69.99 on the Xbox platform, but you can pick up this Xbox Series X title for just $39.99 – a super saving of $30 bucks. There aren’t many games better looking than HNBA 2K22, with incredible real-world player likenesses, making it a great showcase for the new(ish) console.


Hades

One of the TechRadar team’s favorite games of this year is dungeon-crawler/Greek mythological dating sim Hades. Hades really has been the dark horse of 2021 but if you haven’t played it yet then this Amazon Cyber Monday Xbox deal is worth paying attention to.

Right now you can save £10 on Hades for Xbox at Amazon, meaning you can pick up one of the best games of the year for just under $20. Talk about a bargain.


Amazon

Amazon has just launched a fresh set of Cyber Monday deals which means there are loads of new deals available that cover a wide array of tech and gaming – visit the site now to see for yourself. I’ll be bringing you the best Cyber Monday Xbox deals right here, but remember to keep an eye on our Cyber Monday PS5 live blog and Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch live blogs too.


Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Do you love Assassin’s Creed? Or have you never had the chance to play any of the games, for whatever reason? Well, Amazon is offering the perfect opportunity to pick up a bunch of Assassin’s Creed games for less, with this Cyber Monday Xbox deal that sees up to 75% off Assassin’s Creed Digital Games for Xbox.

This deal means you can pick up the ultimate edition of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for just $48, the deluxe edition of Assassin’s Creed Origins for $13.99 and the gold edition of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for $25. All these Assassin’s Creed games will work on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Far Cry 6

(Image credit: Ubisoft)

I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Xbox Series S bundle with Rig 500 Pro EX Wired Headset and PDP Media Remote is back in stock at Sam’s Club for $379.98 (yay). That means you can pick up a new Xbox console, a top-notch headset and a media remote, all for under $400. It’s a perfect combination for those who want to take advantage of the Xbox Series S’s media capabilities – while being left alone in peace.

The bad news is that Walmart’s Far Cry 6 deal is now over, with the Xbox game now back to its usual nearly $70 again (I don’t know why Walmart is saying it’s down from $91 as I’ve never seen the standard edition of Far Cry 6 at that price).


Xbox Series S stock

(Image credit: Microsoft/Future)

Right now in the UK, there’s an abundance of Xbox Series S bundles about. In fact, Currys is offering an Xbox Series S with an extra Xbox Wireless Controller for £299 right now (saving you about a tenner on its usual price). You can either pick up the bundle with a Robot White controller or a Carbon Black controller, unfortunately, the cool Shock Blue is sold out. Want Microsoft’s flagship console instead? Argos still has Xbox Series X stock right now.

Don’t worry US people, I haven’t forgotten about you. Unfortunately, there’s just not much in the way of Xbox Series S or Xbox Series X stock in the US right now, outside of this Xbox Series S Fortnite and Rocket League bundle at GameStop for $299.99. But, as we’ve said before, we’re expecting that to change in about 13 hours as Walmart has confirmed it will have an Xbox Series X/S stock drop at 12pm ET today (though it will be exclusive to paying Walmart+ members).


Call of Duty Vanguard

Hello, hello folks. It’s 6am here in the UK so it’s time Hamish got some sleep and I – Gaming Editor Vic Hood – once again took the reigns of highlighting lovely Xbox deals for you this Cyber Monday morning.

So, right off the bat, what are some good deals I’ve spotted as I sip my (very much needed) coffee?

It looks like Call of Duty Vanguard is back down to $39 at Walmart, knocking $20 off its usual price tag. I suggest making sure you pick up the cross-gen edition though as it ensures that, if you’re currently playing the Xbox One version and want to upgrade to Xbox Series X/S later, then you can easily do so. If you simply buy the standard edition, this won’t be the case. Typically this cross-gen edition would cost $10 more, but Walmart’s sale means it’s the same price as the standard Xbox edition. Just follow my link and you should be fine!


The Space Jam Xbox Controller

(Image credit: Microsoft)

It’s almost time for me to go and leave you in someone else’s capable hands in the hunt for Xbox deals – I’ll miss you all while I go and take a lovely 10-hour nap. 

Before I head off though I have just enough time to highlight this cracking deal on a refurbished Space Jam: A New Legacy Tune Squad Xbox controller. Instead of its usual $47.71 price, Amazon Warehouse will sell you this Xbox handset for just $38.17.

Unfortunately, it’s only in an ‘Acceptable’ condition – the worst possible – but it’s the boldest looking Xbox controller I’ve seen, and with a bit of love and care you might be able to return it to its full glory.

If you want it you’ll have to act fast as there’s only one available – Go, Go, Go.

Well, that’s all folks! (From me at least, someone else will be coming back very soon)

Earlier I sang the praises of the Razer Kishi – a mobile game controller that works great with the Xbox Cloud Gaming platform. The Android version is currently discounted to just $44.99 at Amazon.com (instead of  $79.99) and at Amazon.co.uk it’s £49.99 (£40 less than its usual price).

If you didn’t grab one earlier you still can (when my shift ends I know I’ll be heading straight to Amazon to nab one for myself if it’s still available) and Apple users I have some good news for you: the Lightning Port compatible version of the Razer Kishi has also been discounted.

It’s down to $59.99 instead of $99.99 at Amazon. Unfortunately, that means it’s a little more expensive than its USB-C counterpart – I guess the Apple premium carries over to third-party peripherals too.

Apparently, I need to be doing actual Xbox deals, and not just posts about mugs I like the look of, so here’s a good one for you: the premium Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal gaming headset for Xbox is currently 24%-off at Amazon US.

However, while this offer knocks over $100 off the asking price you should know that this isn’t the cheapest we’ve seen this headset sell for – earlier in the month it was around $20 cheaper.

It isn’t even the best price you can find on Amazon right now, but to find those deals you’ll have to be willing to buy a refurbished headset from Amazon Warehouse. Amazon Warehouse items are still functional (and come with a one-year warranty) you just have to accept that the headset you buy has previously been used by someone else.

Not only are these products already a cheaper alternative to buying the product new, they currently have an extra 20% discount applied. That means the $334.70 ‘Like New’ headset is just $267.76 and the $324.13 cans in ‘Very Good’ condition are now $259.30.

To find these deals you’ll have to look for the button on the righthand side of the screen that says ‘Used (6) from $310.04 and free shipping >’ (it’s just under the ‘Add to List’ button below ‘Add to Cart’). 

Attached to the Amazon Warehouse listing you’ll then see a tag that says ‘Save 20% at checkout’ – if you don’t see this on the product page you won’t get a further price reduction on the Bang & Olufsen headset you’re buying.

I have found my new favorite Black Friday deal: it’s this Solitaire 30th Anniversary Mug that’s now £8.99 instead of £12.99 (sorry US folk this is one of those UK-only deals).

For one it looks perfect for drinking a coffee from – boy would I love a coffee right now – but also it finally gives us a great way to celebrate this classic Windows PC gaming title.

Microsoft Solitaire and Minesweeper are, without a doubt, the best games the company has ever given us (yes that includes the Halo and Forza series) and by using this mug at home or at the office you can let the world know that you aren’t just a casual Solitaire fan – you love it.


Xbox Wireless Controller - Shock Blue

(Image credit: Microsoft)

I’m back from my 3AM ‘lunch break’ and ready to serve up some new Xbox deals, starting with this Xbox Wireless Controllers deal over at Xbox.com.

You can get the regular Carbon Black and Robot White controllers, as well as the Shock Blue, Pulse Red, and Electric Volt (a sort-of neon lime) each for just $49.99 instead of their usual price of $59.99 / $64.99. They also come with free 2-3 day shipping so you won’t get burned by having to pay to have them sent your way.

These controllers might not be quite as cool as the custom Design Lab Controllers, but they cost a fair amount less (especially with this deal).

Xbox Series S

(Image credit: Shutterstock/Miguel Lagoa)

The Xbox Series X might be Microsoft’s flashiest console right now, but we shouldn’t forget the Xbox Series S. If you want a cheap way to enjoy Xbox’s great first-party exclusives as well as the Xbox Game Pass catalog – and you aren’t too fussed about having mind-blowing graphics – this cheaper console is perfect for you.

In the US, you can get an Xbox Series S with an additional controller for $349.98 or you could instead snatch up this Xbox Series S Fortnite and Rocket League bundle which is currently $299 at GameStop.

The other main advantage of the Xbox Series S is that it is currently available to buy – unlike the Xbox Series X. However,  Walmart has announced that it will have a restock on Cyber Monday from 12 pm ET for Walmart Plus members only so be sure to keep an eye out!

If this year’s Cyber Monday Xbox game deals are starting to make your digital library swell you might soon need to expand your Xbox Series X’s storage space.

Unfortunately, I haven’t spotted any deals on the Seagate Xbox Storage Expansion Card in the US (UK readers can nab the Seagate 1TB card for £35-off at Very) – though you can get the official Xbox 1TB Seagate external SSD for $50-off at Amazon (it’s now down to $149.99).

This game drive will run faster than an external HDD but won’t be as quick as the expansion card nor the Xbox’s internal SSD – but if you’re after more Xbox Series X storage this is a deal that’s well worth your time.

If you aren’t bothered about getting a deal you can get the 1TB Seagate Expansion Card and the 512GB expansion card at Walmart.

When I’m not writing up Xbox deals or playing Halo Infinite I’m grinding away at Watch Dogs: Legion – the London-based third-installment in the Ubisoft franchise. 

Sure it’s over a year old but if you haven’t played it yet you should give it try – it’s like the game Cyberpunk 2077 wished it could be and with the difficulty level turned up and permadeath on you’ll be in for a challenge. It’s also been optimized for the Xbox Series X, so you can put your hardware to good use and enjoy the game at 60FPS.

Oh yeah, and you can currently get Watch Dogs: Legion for $14.99 at Amazon (that’s 75%-off its normal price). If you can’t wait for delivery you could pay a whole 1¢ more and get the Xbox Digital Code for $15.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate bills itself as the best way to play the latest and greatest games no matter where you are – whether you’re on your Xbox console, at your PC, or even out on the go with your smartphone.

But the Xbox controller can be a bit cumbersome to take out and about if you want to use your Game Pass subscription to its fullest; so why not opt for the Razer Kishi add-on that turns your Android phone into a Switch-like gaming machine?

Not only does the Kishi have a great-sounding name, but it’s currently discounted to just $44.99 at Amazon.com (down from $79.99) – while at Amazon.co.uk it’s £49.99 (instead of £89.99).

We gave the Razer Kishi four stars in our review thanks to its simple plug-and-play approach that means you don’t need to map controls for each game – though you may have issues if you want to use it for mobile games outside of the Xbox Cloud Gaming platform.

Have you ever wanted to wear a crystal-encrusted silver Master Chief necklace? Well, your wait is over as you can get this $120 /£91.95 piece of Halo jewellery for 15%-off with code XBOXBF15 at the official Xbox merch store thanks to its ongoing Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.

If that doesn’t float your boat (why wouldn’t it?) you can use that code to save 15% on whatever you order at the Xbox Gear Shop – provided that you spend $75 or more. Bring your total spending up to $150 or more and you can use code XBOXBF20 to get 20%-off.

Don’t just game – game in style!

What’s better than playing on an Xbox? Playing on an Xbox with friends! If you want to game in online multiplayer you’ll need an Xbox-compatible gaming headset first – otherwise, you’ll be stuck talking yourself.

Right now Amazon.com has a bevy of headset deals live for you to enjoy as we head into Cyber Monday – with our favorite being this 43% saving on the HyperX CloudX (you can get these official Xbox licensed cans for just $39.99).

If you want to splash out a little more you could instead opt for this Razer Kaira headset that’s $30-off (now $69.99); or you might prefer paying just $44.95 for the Turtle Beach Recon 200.

I promise I play things other than Halo – but this is a great deal I have to share. Earlier I said you’d have to pay full price or opt for Game Pass Ultimate to play the Halo Infinite Campaign; well I went digging and found this huge saving that gives you a third option if you don’t mind opting for a digital-only version of the game.

Right now the Halo Infinite Campaign is down to just £37.99 at CD Keys in the UK. That’s a saving of £17-off the full price. In the US you can instead grab the Halo Campaign for $52.09 (for a $7.90 discount) – not as massive a drop in price but better than paying full-price if you don’t trust subscription models. like Game Pass Ultimate

If Halo isn’t your jam don’t fret as there are still deals for you. You can snatch up Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy for £32.99 or Far Cry 6 for £35.99 – great savings considering how recently these games were released.

In the US we’d recommend you instead head over to Xbox’s official sale – as the savings to found on these games are much better than on CD Keys: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is $38.99 and  Far Cry 6 is down to $40.19.

Halo Infinite Fracture: Tenrai event

Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening everyone – Hamish here. I’ve been dragged away from paying Halo Infinite multiplayer to take over this Xbox page for a while.

If you haven’t tried it out yet, why haven’t you? The multiplayer is free-to-play for everyone on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC – you don’t even need to pay for Xbox Gold to play online.

If you are looking to play the Halo Infinite campaign when it launches on December 8 though, that’s another story. To give that a try you’ll have to buy the game for $59.99 / £54.99… or you could play it for just $1 / £1 instead. 

We highlighted this deal earlier but we have to give it another shout out: new subscribers can currently get their first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1/£1 at Microsoft right now. This Netflix-style service won’t only let you play Halo but loads of other great games on Xbox and PC including the likes of Back 4 Blood, It Takes Two, and Control.

Alan Wake Remastered

Remember how I said I’d be running this live blog until the early hours of this morning? Well, I’m sad to say that’s no longer the case. (Don’t worry, I haven’t done anything wrong… yet.)

I’m taking care of the Cyber Monday PS5 live blog and Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch live blog instead, but I thought I’d leave you with one more tempting Xbox deal before I go.

Anyone who owned an Xbox 360 will probably already know just how great Alan Wake was when it was released in 2010, but if you still haven’t played it (or want to experience it again), this deal is for you. Alan Wake is just $19.99 at Walmart and only £17.99 at Amazon, which is a fantastic price.

As I wrote in my Alan Wake Remastered review, “Remedy’s unique spin on the survival horror genre won’t leave you shaking in your boots, but it will keep you on tenterhooks until the very end with its enthralling story and satisfying spin on survival horror action.” For less than $20 / £20, you can’t really go wrong at this price.

Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2

If someone put me on the spot and said, “Adam, tell me what’s the best Xbox deal right now?” I’d probably say it’s this amazing offer on the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 for just $139.99.

The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 is the best pad I’ve ever owned, and if you’re a competitive gamer like me (I hit Diamond 4 in Halo Infinite if that means anything to you), Microsoft’s premium controller is worth every dollar. 

Not only can you customize multiple elements to suit your individual playstyle, like analog stick tension, remapping buttons, and switching between two D-pad styles, but it’s rare to see such a steep discount like this.

The Elite Series 2 isn’t just great for first-person shooters, though. If you like racing games, the back buttons can be assigned to shifting gears when driving stick, and you can store three profiles so you can switch between different setups when necessary.

In the UK, the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 is also discounted to £149.99, which isn’t as good as the US offer, but it’s still totally worth it in my opinion. 

Microsoft Xbox Series S, controller and Beoplay Portal headphones

Hey, folks. It’s Adam Vjestica here, TechRadar’s Senior Gaming Writer. I’ll be taking over the Cyber Monday Xbox live blog until the early hours of the morning – so let’s have some fun and find some great deals, shall we?

The Xbox Series S was apparently the best-selling console over Black Friday, and beat the PS5 and Nintendo Switch OLED. I told everyone not to overlook the Xbox Series S during Black Friday, and it looks like some of you heeded my advice.

It really is a great little console, and as you can see in the picture I took above, it’s a surprisingly portable system and perfect if you’re going on a staycation.

Even though Walmart has announced that it will have a restock on Cyber Monday from 12 pm ET for Walmart Plus members only, the chances of grabbing an Xbox Series X or PS5 in time for Christmas remains slim. 

If you’re tired of waiting, then, and want to enjoy next-gen games right now on a box that can do pretty much everything its bigger brother can (albeit at a slightly lower resolution and framerate) check out the Xbox Series S deals we’ve rounded up below.

In the US, you can get an Xbox Series S with an additional controller for $349.98, which is a saving of $10. UK gamers can pick up an Xbox Series S with a three month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (3 Months Subscription) for £282.98 at Amazon right now.

Gears 5 Dolby Atmos

Another of the best Xbox Series X/S games around is on offer at Walmart right now as part of Cyber Monday Xbox deals. Gears 5 is $9.99 at Walmart right now, saving you $50 on its RRP. Those in the UK can pick up Gears 5 for just £5 at BT (the lowest price we’ve seen to date).

Gears 5 is an excellent game whether you play it on Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S but,  thanks to Xbox Series X optimization, the experience on Microsoft’s flagship console is easily the best. On Xbox Series X, Gears 5’s campaign has significantly reduced loading times, both gameplay and cutscenes run at 4K at 60fps, while ray-traced screen space global illumination massively improves the campaign’s visual fidelity. In addition, multiplayer runs at up to 120fps at 4K – making the game more responsive than ever. I’ve personally found that 120fps paired with the Xbox Series X’s Dolby Atmos audio support makes for an extremely immersive and smooth gameplay experience.

Are you on the lookout for more Xbox controllers, but aren’t interested in the premium options we posted earlier? Then you’ll be glad to know that Walmart has discounted a bunch of Xbox Wireless Controllers to $49 – resulting in a savings of roughly $15.

These controllers come in a range of colors, including Pulse Red, Electric Volt and Shock Blue, and will work on both Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One.

If you’re not a fan of Fortnite or Rocket League, then the previous Xbox Series S bundle I posted may not be your cup of tea. Luckily, I have an alternative – unfortunately, though, it’s only available in the UK (sorry US folk).

Right now, UK gamers can pick up an Xbox Series S with a three month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (3 Months Subscription) for £282.98 at Amazon right now. Earlier in this live blog, I advocated for every Xbox owner to pick up Xbox Game Pass Ultimate as its such brilliant value and is easily the king of gaming subscriptions right now. 

It is worth noting, however, that this is a full-price bundle. Purchasing these products separately costs the same as the bundle price Amazon is selling it for. It’s not technically a ‘deal’ then, but it’s a bit more convenient.

Xbox Series X

While Xbox Series X stock is pretty much non-existent in the US right now (well, until Walmart’s restock on Cyber Monday), those in the UK can get their hands on the coveted console at Argos right now – which appears to have quite a bit of stock.

The Xbox Series X is £449.99 at Argos, and has been available for a few days now. We may not be seeing a discount on the flagship Xbox console but, to be honest, given gamers in the US are struggling to even get hands on one, I’m not too fussed about that. Especially as I’m not seeing any other UK retailers with stock right now.

It Takes Two

Have you been looking for a discount on an excellent couch co-op Xbox game to play with a loved one? Then look no further. Right now, the wonderful It Takes Two is just $19.99 at Amazon US and £16.99 at Very in the UK

EA Hazelight’s heartwarming, family-friendly game about divorce (yes, you read that right) sits proudly on our best Xbox Series X games list – and for good reason. It Takes Two is a fun, tongue-in-cheek adventure that will provide hours of entertainment for both gamers and non-gamers alike (I played it with my non-gamer boyfriend and he had a blast). Taking elements from a variety of different games and intertwining them a rom-com-like narrative, It Takes Two has something for everyone – even kids. 

It’s worth noting this game can only be played in co-op (either online or couch), but comes with a Friend’s Pass allowing you to invite an online friend to join your adventure, even if they don’t own the full game. 

Seagate Xbox Storage Expansion Card

If you’ve got a new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S then you’ll probably find pretty quickly that the console’s internal storage gets used up very quickly thanks to all your lovely (but chunky) new Xbox games. Fortunately, unlike with some consoles (cough, PS5, cough) expanding the internal storage of an Xbox Series X/S is extremely easy, as all you have to do is pop a Seagate Xbox Storage Expansion Card in the dedicated slot at the back of the console.

Unfortunately, though, this card is pretty pricey and, because Seagate’s card is the only compatible expansion card for Xbox Series X/S, you can’t exactly shop around for an alternative. Fortunately, though, there is currently £35 off the Seagate Xbox Storage Expansion Card at Amazon UK right now, so you can pick it up for (a slightly more digestible) £184.99.

Right now, I’m not seeing a similar deal in the US, but if I do spot one then I will make sure to update this liveblog with the details.

Far Cry 6

Are you looking for a new Xbox game to really sink your teeth into? Then it’s worth considering picking up Far Cry 6, which is currently $35 at Walmart (save $20) and £39.99 at Amazon UK (save £18).

Is Far Cry 6 the best game of the year? Honestly, no. It’s pretty mediocre, in my opinion. But considering it was only released last month and provides hours upon hours of content, picking it up for a $20/£18 discount is pretty decent – plus it works on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. In our Far Cry 6 review, TechRadar Staff Writer Rhys Wood said:

“Far Cry 6 is the latest and quite possibly the greatest in Ubisoft’s long-running open-world shooter series. The island of Yara is a beautiful, dangerous place to explore, loaded with secrets and objectives that are actually worth hunting down this time. It’s still best enjoyed in small doses, however, as Ubisoft’s tendency to fill every inch of the map with side objectives persists.”

Clearly, Rhys enjoyed it more than I did, so, if you’re still on the fence, I advise checking out his full review to see if Far Cry 6 sounds like it’s up your street.

cheap Xbox controller deals sales

You know that embarrassing moment when you have some friends come around to play an Xbox couch co-op game like Overcooked, only to realize you don’t have enough controllers for everyone. “Sorry, Jess, you’re going to share a controller with Matt”.

Well, the best way to avoid this kind of situation is to have a stash of Xbox gamepads at the ready. Fortunately, there are currently plenty of Cyber Monday Xbox controller deals on some premium game pads – so maybe give the guests the standard and keep the fancy ones for yourself.

The fantastic Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller is currently $139.99 on the official Microsoft store, saving you $40. I’ve personally used the Series 2 and can say it’s the best Xbox controller on the market, working on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. 

It just feels premium, heavier than the standard Xbox Wireless Controller and with plenty of customization options. But the Series 2 is expensive. 

The Razer Wolverine Ultimate though, is also discounted, and is a more budget-friendly alternative if you want to get serious with your Xbox controller but don’t want to fork out over $100 for the Elite Series 2. 

Discounted from 159.99 to $99.99 at Best Buy, the Razer Wolverine Ultimate features interchangeable thumbsticks and d-pad, button remapping and hair-trigger settings to fully customize the controller for your comfort.

You can’t go wrong with either of these controllers.

If you’re on the hunt for a discount on one of the best Xbox Series X headsets then you’re in luck. 

Right now, Amazon in the US has discounted the EPOS H3 headset by $12, bringing the price down from $99.99 to a more digestible $87.

The EPOS H3 is a comfortable and sleek all-rounder headset that works on Xbox Series X/S, but is also compatible with PS5, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. In our EPOS H3 review, we said: 

“The EPOS H3 is an extremely comfortable headset that delivers well-balanced and detailed sound. Though it’s primarily designed for gaming, we found ourselves reaching for the H3’s to listen to our favorite songs, which is a testament to just how great they sound. If you’re looking for a wired headset that delivers in every area that matters – audio quality, comfort and crystal-clear communication – the EPOS H3 won’t let you down.”

Sounds pretty good, right? (get it?)

Psychonauts 2

Psychonauts 2 is my personal Game of the Year. Sure, the combat is a bit clunky, but it’s a brilliant tongue-in-cheek (but evocative) adventure platformer that will have you cackling one minute and then welling up the next. 

Fortunately, this Psychonauts 2 digital code is $30 off at Walmart right now, so you can pick it Double Fine’s excellent game for just $29.99. 

Absolute bargain, in my opinion. What’s more, this code will work on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles so, even if you upgrade later, you can still play it.


Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

OK, this may not technically be a Cyber Monday-only deal but it’s still pretty sweet. 

New subscribers can currently get their first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1/£1 at Microsoft right now. Microsoft’s Netflix-style gaming subscription service has proven to be fantastic value for money over the past few years as the library continues to grow with new releases and old favourites added every few weeks. 

Personally, I think it’s the best gaming subscription out there right now.

With an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, you get (deep breath) access to over 100 games in the Xbox Game Pass library on both PC and console, access to first-party Xbox games which land in the library on day one, access to Xbox cloud gaming, exclusive member discounts and deals and Xbox Live Gold included, which grants access to online multiplayer and offers a handful of free games to download and keep each month. 

Let’s break down each of these elements. For a start, the Xbox Game Pass library is heaving with games to play, from Xbox 360 games to the latest Xbox exclusives, and new games are constantly being added to it. 

What’s more, it grants access to EA Play titles like FIFA 21 and Knockout City. However, the biggest draw of the Xbox Game Pass library is that new Xbox first-party titles land on it on day one. 

That means when Halo Infinite arrives in just a few weeks, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will immediately be able to play it as part of their subscription. 

Once your $1/£1 month ends an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate yearly subscription is around £139.99 / $194.59 (though three month and monthly subscriptions are available). 

That may appear quite pricey, but it’s actually good value when you consider a new Xbox first-party release on its own, such as Halo, costs around $60/£50. My advice? If you’ve got an Xbox then Game Pass Ultimate is an absolutely essential purchase. 


Xbox Series S - Fortnite & Rocket League Bundle

(Image credit: Microsoft)

Looking for the perfect Christmas present for the Fortnite or Rocket League fanatic in your life? Then you should definitely consider this excellent Xbox Series S Fortnite and Rocket League bundle which is currently $299 at GameStop in the US and for £249.99 at Amazon UK

It’s worth noting that Amazon UK’s bundle is only available for pre-order right now and won’t be released until December 13, but GameStop’s bundle is available right now.

So what do you get for that price tag? The bundle includes an Xbox Series S console (which alone goes for £249.99/$299), an Xbox Wireless Controller, free-to-play Fortnite and Rocket League game downloads, a high-speed HDMI cable, power cable, and two AA batteries to get you going. 

But, the real kicker is the Rocket League and Fortnite content that comes included. This bundle includes the Fortnite Midnight Drive Pack Set, which consists of the Dark Skully outfit, Dark Skully Satchel Back Bling, Dark Splitter pickaxe, and 1,000 V-Bucks. 

There’s plenty of Rocket League content too, with the Purple Masamune Car, Purple Virtual Wave Boost, Purple Zefram Wheels, and 1,000 Rocket League Credits included in the bundle. It’s worth noting, however, that this bundle doesn’t include Fortnite: Save the World (but it’s not very good anyway).

If you can’t get your hands on an Xbox Series X this Cyber Monday, then this Xbox Series S bundle is definitely worth considering.
