Black Friday is around the corner, and that means that Microsoft is offering a lot of discounts on popular console bundles and games. While we don't know what games will be discounted until November 23, 2018, we did get a sense of the hardware deals today. At X018 in Mexico City, the company announced that it's offering deep discounts of up to $100 off select Xbox One consoles, bringing the coveted Xbox One X down to its lowest price ever, starting at just $399.99.
That's the same price as a PlayStation 4 Pro. Considering that the Xbox One X features 1.8 teraflops more power, this should be an easy decision. Games like Red Dead Redemption 2 even manage to run at native 4K resolution on Microsoft's machine, but feature a fuzzy checkerboarded image on Sony's console. Some title like We Happy Few and Immortal Redneck run at native 4K on Xbox One X, but only 1080p on PlayStation 4 Pro.
Just like Microsoft reiterated at the event, the best place to play third-party games seems to be the Xbox One X. It offers the best picture quality, and now it's even being offered at a comparable price. Will you pick one up? Let us know. The discounts should be offered at various retailers and the Microsoft Store.
Just like past deals, the company is also discounting Xbox Game Pass down to $1 for your first month. A lot of blockbusters like Agents of Mayhem, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), and Ori and the Blind Forest are joining the service soon, so it's probably a good time to subscribe.
