There's been plenty of sales on the Xbox Series X this year, with discounts through Black Friday and Cyber Monday leading up to the holiday period.

You'll also have to take an extra step and go through the Best Buy app on Android or Apple, as the discount is merely $399 on the regular web store.

Why grab an Xbox Series X right now?

If you haven't gotten an Xbox Series X yet, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. This console usually is $499, so you can get it for a massive $160 off! That means having a great way to play current-generation games for just a bit more than the usual price of the weaker Xbox Series S. 

While you might still use your Xbox One, support is drying up. Many of the latest games, such as Alan Wake 2 and Starfield, do not play on the older generation of gaming hardware. Even more games are on the way, like Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 and Star Wars: Outlaws.

You can certainly play these games on an Xbox Series S, but that's usually a decision to make when there's a significant price disparity between the two machines. As things are right now, you can get an Xbox Series S for just $30 more than a regularly priced Xbox Series S. Even considering some discounts we've seen putting the Xbox Series S at $249, it's an easy choice to go for the higher-end machine.

If you take advantage of this deal, just be sure to download the Best Buy app through the Google Play Store or Apple and use that. Again, you won't find this hefty discount just going through the usual online store, where the console is available for a decent but not incredible $399.
