Black Friday announcements, new deals and more on the Xbox Store this week

Xbox Store Black Friday.jpg

It is a bit of a strange week on the Xbox Store, as there aren’t many deals to write home about and only a few great new additions to the Store. That’s probably because Black Friday is on the horizon and guess what, it starts early for Xbox gamers. This Friday to be exact.

So in this week’s Xbox Store Highlights, we take a look at all the Black Friday announcements, then the new additions on the store this week and finally the Deals with Gold and Spotlight Sale available starting today.

Black Friday digital announcements

Over at Major Nelson, a slew of Xbox deals has been announced, from discounts to Xbox One S console bundles to other retail deals like $50 off an Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller when you purchase an Xbox One X. However, we don’t know if these bundled deals will come to South Africa on Black Friday just yet.

Even so, most, if not all of the digital deals and promotions should be available to South Africans. I will, of course, update you guys as soon as some of these deals become available, but you can check them out below so long:

  • 16 to 27 November: "Get Xbox Live Gold for just $1 for your first month and join the greatest community of gamers on the most advanced multiplayer network. Get 2 – 4 free games every month, and save up to 50 – 75% on games for Xbox One from Microsoft Store (online only)."
  • 17 to 20 November: "Black Friday starts early for Xbox Live Gold members, with Early Access to savings on digital games four days before everyone else jumps in (online only)."
  • 17 to 27 November: "Save up to 65% on more than 500 deals on Xbox One and Xbox 360 digital games as well as digital movies and TV shows (online only)."
  • 17 to 27 November: "For the first time ever, join Xbox Game Pass for just $1 for the first month and play over 100 great games, from exclusives like Halo, Gears of War and Fable, to critically-acclaimed indie titles like Limbo."
  • 23 to 27 November: "Save $10 on a 3-month or 6-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold."

Weekly DWG and Spotlight Sale

Keep in mind that you need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to take advantage of the Deals with Gold, while Spotlight Sales do not require a subscription. View my top 5 picks from this week’s Deals with Gold and Spotlight Sale offerings below, as there sadly isn't a lot of great new deals this week. 

  • Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter - R296.67 (DWG)
  • Deadpool - R149.75 (Spotlight)
  • WRC 6 FIA World Rally Championship - R179.70 (DWG)
  • Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition - R35.25 (DWG)
  • Verdun - R84.50 (DWG)

Keep in mind that these deals expire on 21 November 2017 at 13:00 PM so pick them up before the next batch of deals, or Black Friday digital sales, start rolling in. You can view the full list of DWG and the Spotlight Sale on offer this week over at Major Nelson.
