Black Friday Tech Deals: Microsoft Store Offering Sales On Tablets, Wearables, Consoles and Games
Whether your holiday shopping list has you chasing Surface Pro 3 tablets, fitness trackers, a new Xbox One bundle or a cheap Xbox 360, the Microsoft Store looks like it'll be the place to be on Black Friday.
Some of the deals over in the Microsoft Store actually begin on Monday, but the really meaty products don't go on sale until Thanksgiving Day. Here are some of the better deals you'll be able to find over on the site starting Thursday, November 27.
Video Game Deals
You know how the Xbox One recently saw a $50 price slash for the rest of the year? For the company's Black Friday sale, console prices are going even lower. You'll be able to pick up an Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity bundle for $329, a $20 discount off the current price. The version of the bundle that comes with Kinect will be sold for $429, another $20 discount. Both bundles are said to come with a free game, though it's hard to tell if it simply means that it comes with copies of Unity and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag or if buyers really do get yet another game on top of that.
For $129, Black Friday buyers will be able to pick up a 4 GB Xbox 360 with another promise of a free game. You can also pick up a 500 GB Xbox 360 bundle that comes with Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops II for just $199, $50 off sticker price.
Individual Xbox One and Xbox 360 games will be priced down as well. This collection of Xbox One games – which includes newer releases like Sunset Overdrive and The Evil Within – will all be discounted, and these Xbox 360 games are getting price cuts, too. In terms of game accessories, Xbox One controllers will be $10 off starting Thursday. You'll also be able to get $10 off of a 3-month or yearlong subscription to Xbox Live Gold.
More interested in Microsoft's non-game offerings? Starting Thursday, you'll be able to pick up a Surface Pro 3, the device that blurs the line between tablet and laptop, for between $100 and $150 off, depending on what model you get. For those of you looking for a cheaper tablet offering, the Surface 2 will also be on sale for $150 off.
If you're looking for a new fitness tracker to get on the wearables train before it really takes off, you can pick up a new Fitbit Charge for $30 off or a Jawbone UP24 for a whopping $70 off.
And if you're looking to snag a desktop 3D printer this year – and why wouldn't you be – you'll be able to get $200 off a $2,900 machine. Just in case that was top of your to-do list.
