Microsoft has announced it will extend the Black Friday bundle deals for the Xbox One until Dec 26, after seeing record numbers of engagement in the U.S. and worldwide on Black Friday.
The bundles will include the limited edition Halo 5: Guardians bundle, the holiday edition 1TB Xbox One bundle, and the Xbox One Elite bundle — all come with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay, and Ori and the Blind Forest.
Bundles start at $300, $50 off the retail price. Halo 5: Guardians bundle will cost $450, the Xbox One Elite bundle will cost $450, and the 1TB Xbox One bundle will cost $350; bundles are available at most U.S. game retailers.
Sony also has a few bundles available for $300, including the Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection bundle and Star Wars Battlefront bundle. More expensive bundles for limited edition Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and 1TB PS4 are also available at various retailers.
Microsoft has warned that some bundle deals are nearly sold out, and it sounds like once they’re out of stock, they won’t return.
The console manufacturer mentioned a countdown sale starting on Dec 22, where customers will be able to enjoy sales on up to 200 games from the Xbox catalog. Weekly and daily deals will be added during the event, which ends on Jan 7. Local retailers will also participate in this event, according to Microsoft.
Microsoft didn’t mention if Xbox 360 games would be part of the deal, available with the new backwards compatibility added to the Xbox One earlier in the year. That would beef up the Xbox One’s catalog of games significantly.
The Xbox One is still way behind the PS4 in overall sales, but the past two weeks have noticed more sales in the U.S. than its rival, according to VGChartz. Microsoft still trails heavily in Europe, Japan, and other console buying countries however, giving Sony more room to grow.
