GamesIndustry.Biz reports that the first week sales of the Xbox One X have beaten those of the PlayStation 4 Pro and equalled the sales of Nintendo Switch. On the gaming front, Microsoft will discount the Xbox One S 500GB console to just $189 (a price matched by a few other retailers for Black Friday).
Save up to $329 on new Surface bundles: $329 off the Surface Pro i5 256GB and $229 off the Surface Pro i5 128GB. Would you buy one if given the chance outside a console bundle?
Harman Kardon Invoke: Invoke will be available at a discounted price of $99 from November 23 - 27.
Although Microsoft hasn't released sales figures for the console, Aaron Greenberg (Head of Xbox Games Marketing Head) took to Twitter to confirm the reported results.
Save $20 on Xbox Wireless Controllers, $15 on Stereo Headsets, and $10 on Xbox Live Gold 3-month or 6-month subscriptions. Passingham adds: "You're not going to miss out on any games if you don't have the money to upgrade, and that's something we can surely all get on board with".
"With Black Friday just around the corner, Microsoft Store and our partners are offering some great deals on my favorite tech, there's something great for everyone on your list", read a Microsoft blog post.
The new Surface Pro is also receiving some discounts for Black Friday. Although, even when keeping this in mind, it appears that Microsoft has a winner on their hands.
As for us, we're starting to think that people just like the idea of owning an objectively superior technological product.
