Microsoft’s new Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles are rarely in stock, let alone on sale. It is the same PlayStation 5 consoles, which are almost always sold out unless you know where to look. Lucky for you, the entry-level Xbox Series X is currently at its lowest price this season only $269.99, a $30 discount from its original sale price of $299.99+. This Xbox deal is on Walmart and runs while supplies last, so if you’re on the hunt for a new console, this is your chance to pick up an Xbox Series S on sale.
The Xbox Series S is Microsoft’s entry-level discless console launched in 2020, along with the Xbox Series X. Unlike its bulkier counterpart, the Series S offers solid performance in a compact design – I was a proud owner for about six months now. This Xbox console is designed to play games in 1440P (better than HD, but not quite 4K) at up to 120 fps. I had no problem running games like Forza Horizon 5, Microsoft Flight Simulatorr, and even Infinite Halo on Xbox Series S. Pro Tip: Pair it with a 4K TV for immersive graphics and visuals.
Xbox Series X only supports digital games, so be sure to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass, when you buy. Game Pass gives you access to new titles every month with hundreds of gameplay options, all for just $14.99 per month. If you subscribe now, you’ll also get your first full month of video game free.
Note: Walmart also has an Xbox Series S Fortnite + Rocket League bundle on sale for only $274.99 here. The bundle includes the game console, wireless controller, free game downloads for each game, and 1,000 V-Bucks and 1,000 Rocket League Credits.
You’ll also love the Series S’s slim, space-saving design, which means it can easily slide into your TV console or on your desk in the games room. Storage space is limited, capping out at 512GB SSD, but you can always grab a storage expansion card if you want to download more games.
Remember: This Xbox deal is only valid for a limited time, so if you’ve been waiting for a bargain on a modern console, now is the time to shop around. Grab the Xbox Series S Deal Before Supplies Run Out here. You can also find the Xbox on sale at Amazon for $284.99 at the time of this writing.
