Did you unwrap a shiny new Xbox Series X this Christmas morning? Considering how hard it’s been to get a hold of one of the newest generation consoles, you should count yourself as one of the lucky few. Now it’s time to get all the bells and whistles to complete the perfect gaming setup. If you frequently play with friends (or want to trash talk your enemies), you’ll need a nice gaming headset deal. You’re in luck again – Best Buy has knocked $50 off the Astro Gaming A40 TR Wired gaming headset. You can get this Xbox Series X compatible headset for only $200. Check it out below.

This wired headset works perfectly with both the Xbox Series X and Series S. It even works with the Xbox One, so you can use it on your old console while you wait for your new one. It also works on PC and Mac. This Astro A40 TR deal’s most unique feature is the accompanying mixer. Plug your headset into this mixer lets you adjust your master volume and how loud your voice is compared to the in-game sound. If you’re a streamer, this is essential. You don’t want your voice to get covered up by every gun fired in Call of Duty. You can use the accompanying software for even more sound customization options.

This is a comfy headset, perfect for marathoning games or hosting long streaming sessions. The ear cups are well-padded and adjustable, moving up and down and also pivoting. They’re fully ready for tournament play. Optional speaker tags will dampen noise bleed, so the player next to you can’t hear your team’s callouts. You can even swap the microphone to either side. The high-quality sound will give you an edge over players using cheap gaming headsets. Astro Gaming has previously made our list of best gaming headsets of 2020.

Best gaming console deals: cheapest prices on PS5, Xbox S and X and Switch
father and son playing video games

Picking a console is a big decision. They're not cheap, so unless gaming is your passion, you probably don't want to spend the cash to grab all three of the major ones. That's why we've collected the best prices on every version of the three major consoles. Below you'll find Xbox Series S and X deals, PlayStation 5 deals, and Nintendo Switch deals (on all the various versions). We've listed the best prices at the major retailers, and any deals we could find among them. Once you've grabbed your console, check out the best video games deals to go along with them.
Xbox Series S deals -- starting at $280

The Xbox Series S is the less powerful but cheaper option out of the newest generation Xbox line. When comparing the Xbox Series S versus the Xbox Series X, the Series S takes a hit in all the component categories. That means it's not quite as fast. But if you're not hung up on getting the optimal performance out of your system, you'll actually notice very few differences. The two biggest ones are the Series S's inability to play in 8K, and its lack of a disc drive. Most people don't even have 8K TVs, so that shouldn't be an issue. If you're alright with downloading all of your games straight to the console's memory (and you have a separate DVD or Blu-Ray player), the Series S will work fine. It's quite a bit smaller anyway, and easier to fit on a shelf.
