They have had some pretty nice deals for Black Friday in the past, and the preview looks decent. Only $20 off controllers doesn't seem as good as last year's $35 ones, but we'll see what they have. Glad they list a specific time too. I am hoping for the best price on Super Lucky's Tale yet. Maybe the Live sale that starts this week will be a preview for the prices.

Do some research and build it from parts you buy at pc supply stores.  You can do it!

The Minecraft bundle is already overpriced at $399.99. I feel sorry for people who bought one.    So even at 50 dollars off you are paying a hefty premium for a paint job.  When you can get better bundles closer to $200 for a Xbox One s.

Not sure if you're kidding but I really wish MS would start selling their 950 line again.  The Alcatel isn't a bad phone.  I enjoy mine quite a bit.

 

As far as gaming deals, I can't see much that differentiate their offerings from most other BF ads that are out there.

I'm still using my 950XL, and have been using many different Android phones, even prototypes, at works over years, I still have desire to change.

 

One thing MS could have made a big difference was if they could have made many more their exclusive Xbox games into mobile versions, I mean good ones not some vanilla version. It's a big flaw in their ecosystem. 

They didn't even extend Xbox Live better for mobile platform like Google and iOS Game Center where save games can be stored there. Games are still requiring FB for saving games or connecting friends.

The $35 controller price wasn't live on the website and they claimed it was a typo. They only took $20 off when the day came around.

Via Major Nelson's blog:
"Save up to $20 on new and favorite games including Forza Motorsport 7, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2 and Forza Horizon 3.

23 – 27: Amp up your title library this holiday with $20 off the hottest games like Forza Motorsport 7 ($39.99), Gears of War 4 and Halo Wars 2 ($19.99 each), and Forza Horizon 3 ($29.99).
23 – 27: Get 35% off the top family-friendly titles including Super Lucky’s Tale, Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection, Disneyland Adventures and Rush: A Disney-Pixar Adventure."

I'm hoping the digital sale matches these prices, I'll be in for Halo Wars 2 and Super Lucky at least.

If you want to play PC games, buy the Xbox One X.

That's pretty good. If you went and tried to build it yourself (started making a comparable build on PC Part Picker), you're probably going to end up around $1,400-1,500. However, the mouse and keyboard in that thing look awful, and like you'd be well-served to buy better ones. Plus, if you had a Micro Center near you (I do), parts would be cheaper. In a perfect world, you can probably build that PC for $1,200-1,300 and have better parts like better GPU cooling and a better PSU and drives.

The VR deals seem decent. However, some said the ODyssey isn't part of the sale, which would suck. Then again, Samsung explcitly states you aren't to use the Odyssey with glasses, and that I should add contacts to my VR budget, if I want that headset. Screw 'em.

 

Dell Visor seems like the best bet right now, since the ASUS headset isn't out until next year. I wish it weren't so freaking ugly, that white is so bad it makes me want to buy the Acer instead. Plus, the Visor's OoS on their site right now, though I assume stock will magically appear for Black Friday.

I just bought a One X, but how am I going to play KOTOR with that?

The original Xbox version is backwards compatible (and highly improved by the X1X) just buy it in the Xbox store for $10 or get a hard copy at GameStop for $17. KOTOR on the One X is reality.

I think it would be tough to build this computer at microcenter for that price.  Rough price list:

 

CPU (i7 7700) - $250 (but you'll want to spend the $10 extra to get the 7700K)

CPU Cooler - $30 or so (the 7700 might come with a CPU cooler, but I don't believe that the 7700K does)

Motherboard - $70 (bundle with the CPU to save $30, the asus board seems good for $100)

RAM - $150

Video Card - $500 or so, maybe you could find an open box or on sale in store

Case - $50 - $100 depending on preference,

240 GB SSD - $80

2 TB HD - $50 - $70

Windows - $110 at microcenter, but you can find legit copies at various stores for $85

Keyboard and mouse - $30 or so, depending on preference

Power Supply - $50 - $70

 

Now, keep in mind, if you deal hunt and watch for parts you can probably shave some of this off, but that takes time and effort.  Taking the lowest numbers on that list is about $1345.
