This Xbox Series X deal celebrates the Xbox Games Showcase with an incredible price

UPDATE: Unfortunately, the Walmart deal has come to an end, but we found a great price on this Grade A Refurbished Xbox Series X at Woot: $320, with Free shipping for Amazon Prime users. One per customer. 

It's basically Christmas for Xbox gamers. We just saw the Xbox Games Showcase, and as if to celebrate, Walmart knocked $90.67 off the asking price. That means you can grab an Xbox Series X for only $408.33.

Suppose you are looking for a new Xbox console. In that case, you might wonder whether to buy an Xbox Series S or an Xbox Series X. Both consoles are part of the same generation and offer similar features, such as Quick Resume, Smart Delivery, backward compatibility, and access to Xbox Game Pass. However, there are also some important differences that you should consider before making your decision.

The Xbox Series X is the more powerful and high-end console, offering the best resolutions and smoothest performance. It has a 4K UHD Blu-ray drive that can play physical games and movies, as well as a 1TB SSD that can store more games and reduce loading times. It can also output games at up to 4K resolution and 120 FPS, with support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The Xbox Series X is ideal for gamers who want the ultimate gaming experience and have a 4K TV or monitor to enjoy it.

The Xbox Series S is a more affordable alternative with lower resolution and half the storage space (though the black version now also has 1TB). It does not have a disc drive, so you can only play digital games and stream movies, which is fine but may not suit the majority of gamers who prefer physical games. It can output games at up to 1440p resolution and 120 FPS, but it does not support Dolby Vision or Dolby Atmos. The Xbox Series S is ideal for gamers who have a smaller budget or do not have a 4K TV or monitor.

If the Xbox Series X is your console of choice, this Walmart deal is the best one right now and delivers the most value for your money. At $408.33, the Xbox Series X isn't quite as affordable as it was during a one-day sale at Best Buy that's since ended, but it's awfully close. Importantly, Walmart's price is better than what's currently available through Best Buy, Target, or Microsoft.
