Microsoft's Black Friday game deals may not be here just yet, but the company is already slashing the price of its Xbox subscription services for new subscribers. Both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold memberships can be had for $1 a piece for the first month.
Both deals are set to run through November 27, at which point they'll drop back to their regular price of $9.99 per month. Unfortunately, current subscribers can't take advantage of the deals, but they're still a solid way for newbies to check the services out.
These are in addition to a whole slew of Black Friday deals Microsoft has planned for the month of November. Hardware, including Xbox Wireless Controllers and consoles, will go on sale later this month. The highlight for most gamers, however, will be the digital game sales, which are set to kick off for more than 500 games on Xbox One and Xbox 360 from November 17 through November 27.
If you're new to Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold, you can grab the discounted subscriptions now via Microsoft.
