It's almost Black Friday, and you know what that means: It already is Black Friday, which now contains multiple fridays and continually threatens to consume October since November's capture and submission wasn't enough. But, the bright side of the shopping season consuming any genuine holiday mirth is this: You can get the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 for $40 off! That's enough to net you big savings on the best Black Friday Xbox headset deals.

Or maybe you want to put that $40 in savings somewhere else and haven't decided which of the best Black Friday Xbox Series X deals is right for you. That's okay too. You can keep checking Windows Central for all the best deals so that you're ready to spend those savings the second the apple of your eye arrives.

In the meantime, for the deal at hand: It's available directly at Microsoft's site (<-- that link will take you to Microsoft's site, fair warning). Microsoft will give you free shipping, to boot.

As was reiterated above, this deal will shave just about 22% of the cost off your fancy-schmancy Elite 2 controller, meaning you can almost say you saved a whole quarter of the pie on it. Alternatively, you can wait another couple of months or years to see the price dip even more drastically, but why hold back? The best time to own the supreme Xbox controller experience was months ago, and the second-best time is right now.

We say that with confidence, as we loved the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 and gave it a whopping five out of five stars. Once you go Elite, it may be hard to go back.
