While we regularly see a plethora of deals on the Xbox Series S, discounts for the Xbox Series X are extremely rare.

Why we like this deal
Facetiousness aside, with the price of the Xbox Series X going up outside of the U.S., any kind of discount is actually genuinely appreciated. You're simply not going to find the console on sale that frequently. If you've been waiting to buy one, this is as good a chance as any.
While Microsoft has been (rightfully) criticized for a lack of big first-party games that justify buying a new console, that drought appears to finally be over. Starfield, the next big game from Bethesda Game Studios, is launching in September, and you'll need an Xbox Series X|S or a high-end Windows PC to play it.
Beyond that, even more Xbox first-party games are on the horizon, such as Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, Avowed, Clockwork Revolution, and many more.
If you need more storage once you buy your Xbox Series X, consider grabbing the heavily-discounted Seagate Expansion Card and Game Drive, which can be used to store your current-generation and backward-compatible games, respectively. You should also check out our other top Amazon Prime Day deals, where you can save even more.
