[XB1, XSX] Xbox Series S $386.10, Halo Infinite & MS Flight Sim $15 + More @ The Market (Requires MC+), EB Games, JB Hi-Fi

250
BF10

Microsoft's version of the Black Friday sale has kicked off. Included The Market on this one as it has a killer Xbox Series S price. Best prices are in bold, and i'll keep the post updated as things change.

Series S is a great console for emulation, including Nintendo 64, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, GameCube, Wii, Nintendo DS, Playstation 2 & PSP! Just remember it doesn't have a disc drive so no point buying any of these game titles along with it.
Also, all(?) of these games are on Gamepass which works out a lot cheaper if you're not fussed about owning them physically.

    Microsoft loses approximately US$200 on Xbox Series S and US$100 on Xbox Series X. Go figure I thought it would be other way around.

    Sony breaks even on PS5 Digital Edition and makes a profit on PS5.

  • I could only find the Xbox One version of Forza 4 at that price OP

    • Ah, i'll sort it - but I can't edit? I get this error: Cannot change deal from Noel Leeming to a different store. If it really needs to be done, please contact a moderator.
      And that's just me changing the description text, nothing else.

      The Xbox One version is also the Xbox Series version. Xbox uses a system called smart delivery that downloads the version suitable for your system at no extra cost for games that have enhanced patches available.

      • Good to know. Thanks

  • tempting. Anyone have this over the X series? thoughts?

    • I have both, the Series S is a wicked deal especially when you add in GamePass (look up how to get 3 years of GamePass for cheap with a VPN). There hasn't been anything that the series s struggles to play, with the huge catalogue of games on gamepass you have yourself a very good system.

      • I'm selling my series X to just use my series S I had before it. Compact and I don't use any discs just game pass.

        • Yeah MS hasn't really given any first party games that need the Series X specs at this point… 1440p gaming on the Series S is great.

  • Great price for this and cheapest I've seen them.

    I've got.one and for casual games and gamepass it's perfect, just lower performance than the series x for half the price. The biggest problems you'll encounter is only 512gb of storage and no disc drive. I only use gamepass and buy the odd digital game via third party sites if they are cheap then have a USB SSD for moving games back and forth if I need to.

    Can't edit my post at the moment due to an error, but EBGames have Halo Infinite and Flight Sim for $15, Horizon 4 for $28, and Horizon 5 for $55.

    • Send a report and ask the mods what the go is

        how are you not a mod, that's what I want to know :P

          pretty sure Wakrak is some sort of advanced A.I, def not human.

  • Do you have to jailbreak/CFW the xbox for emulation? So I couldn't use it for emu and game pass at the same time I'm guessing?

    This is really starting to get in the zone.

    S doesn’t do 4k in games and doesn’t have any physical media drive. Less onboard storage too.

    At below half the price of the X now though, those differences may not be significant enough to not purchase the S at this price.

      There are other limitations to take into consideration as well. Some games on Series S are locked to 30fps while on big brother they have 60fps modes, Dying Light 2 is an example of this, some people don't care about higher framerates for gaming but some do so it's worth mentioning. Also, if you have a large 4k tv you'll probably notice some games looking a bit blurry as some games on the S can run as low as 540p when it comes to resolution, it was touted at release as a 1440p machine, but the reality is that while there are some new games that hit 1440p you're looking mostly at 900p - 1080p for new releases, and from what I've been reading most people are expecting that average to drop down closer to 720p as the generation progresses and games become more demanding on the hardware.

      Still, $390 for a machine that can maintain a stable 60fps in Cyberpunk and play MS Flight Sim is a bloody good deal.

      Series S is very suitable for an entry-level gamer

      especially with XGP subscription, it is a perfect combo

    Post updated, EBGames cleaning up on the game prices. Added MightyApe and EBGamesPreowned prices also.

  • Can't be bothered creating a deal so I'll leave these Amazon AU deals here

    PS5 Ghostwire Tokyo $20.56 excluding gst and shipping (free shipping when you spend $53.03 on eligible products)
    PS5 Sonic Frontiers $58.44 excluding gst + free shipping

    and if you're a gaming masochist - PS5 Gotham Knights $63.86 excl gst + free shipping

    https://www.amazon.com.au/deal/3e72e813

    • Nice! I saw the Frontiers price earlier and thought about posting too but same boat couldn't be bothered. Might have to grab GWTokyo at that price

      • Ghostwire is $25 at The Warehouse now.

  • What's the cheapest but good Tv monitor for this. I'm a newbie any help please

    • You need to figure out your budget and what size TV you want, and then work from there

    • Totally depends on your needs and budget. If you want to sit up close with a monitor any 1080p 120hz monitor with freesync would be a good shout. If you want a bigger tv cheaper ones will all have the same functionality topping out at 4k resolution at 60hz, you have to step up to more premium models to get freesync and high refresh rates.
