If at this point you’re still searching for Xbox related gift ideas then look no further, because we’ve got you covered with these gift ideas for Xbox fans.

Xbox Series S holiday discount

We recently saw the Xbox Series S drop to its lowest price yet for this year’s Black Friday event. But don’t worry if you missed out, because that discount has been extended through the Christmas shopping season. As of right now (December 19) you can still get the most accessible next-gen gaming console for an incredible $239.99. In other words, that’s $60 off—a 20% discount on the usual MSRP. You can find this discount at various retailers including Walmart, or you can buy from the Microsoft Store.

That’s for a next-gen console, mind you. The all-digital Xbox Series S can deliver up to 120FPS gameplay, HDR, rich 3D sound and up to 1440p resolution. It also supports ray-tracing, ultra-low latency, variable refresh rate, variable rate shading, and includes a 512GB SSD.
But really it’s all about the games, and with Series S you can access hundreds of them—from the latest next-gen blockbusters to backward-compatible titles from all three previous generations of Xbox. This includes hundreds of titles available with Xbox Game Pass.
