The Xbox Series S is a less pricey version of the Xbox Series X. It is capable of running games at 120FPS, HDR resolutions, and playing backwards compatible Xbox titles from previous console generations. 

The Xbox Series S by itself is usually sold for $300 at most retailers. However, if you buy it with the Starter bundle, you will save a bunch on Xbox Game Pass, since you'll get a three-month subscription to Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass library in the box. With Xbox Game Pass, you can play hundreds of the best Xbox games immediately.

This bundle will make a great gift to help your friends get into Xbox gaming, ahead of this year's Black Friday. Some Black Friday deals for Xbox accessories to enhance your Xbox Series S are available right now such as Seagate's Xbox Series X|S Expansion Card and Xbox controllers.
