XBOX One fans should keep their eyes peeled for Black Friday deals in 2021.
Following the release of the Xbox Series X in 2020, this could be a great time to get a top-notch console at a low price – so get in the game this November.
Just because a product is in a Black Friday sale, doesn't mean you can’t find it, or something similar, cheaper elsewhere. Always shop around before you spend your money.

When is Black Friday 2021?
Black Friday falls on November 26 this year, as it's always the day after the fourth Thursday of November (America's Thanksgiving holiday).
Yet while Black Friday itself is only one day, the online sales around it can start up to two weeks before.
This year we'd expect plenty of gaming sales, including Xbox One Black Friday deals from retailers with remaining stock.
When is Cyber Monday 2021?
This year, Cyber Monday falls on November 29 and most retailers take part, so look out for lots of discounts.
It's your last chance to snap up a great bargain.
What to expect from Xbox One retailers in the Black Friday 2021 sales
Following the release of the Xbox Series X, there will likely be great discounts on the Xbox One, with big price cuts. Consoles might even be bundled with smartphones.
That means plenty of value to be found, and safe in the knowledge the Xbox One X and S should still be supported for the next couple of years.
For stores, look to retailers like Game, Currys, Argos, Very, AO.com, and Microsoft itself.
How much is an Xbox One?
The regular price for the Xbox One S is £249.99, while the regular price for the Xbox One X is £339.99.
Bundles will impact those prices, but the key issue for Black Friday week is availability, as units are scarce.

Can you play Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One?
Yes, the Xbox One does support the majority of older Xbox 360 and Xbox games.
You do need to have a disc drive to play any game, so the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition cannot, but it's not why you think.
To play a game from an older Xbox console, if supported, you need to download it. But to do that you first need to insert the game to the disc drive to be recognised.
Then when logged into your Xbox one Account, go into My games & apps and go as far right as possible.
If the game is able to be played, you will see the game icon – which you can click to download the game to the Xbox One.
How much is Xbox Live?
Xbox Live costs £7 per month, but you can pay for three months at £18.
The best value option is for a 12-month period, which will cost you £50.
You can find all of the options and more information on Xbox Live on the dedicated Xbox site.
