We've seen a huge variety of Black Friday gaming deals roll in, but now we've just seen one of the best Black Friday Xbox Series S deals in the UK, landing you the Series S console for cheaper than a Nintendo Switch Lite.
The Xbox Series S is currently only £189.99 at Amazon, knocking an incredible £75 off its standard retail price and making it the cheapest we've ever seen the console. But, it also marks the console as £10 cheaper than a Nintendo Switch Lite, which currently sits at £199 on Amazon, or £192 on Amazon if you opt for the grey color. Either way, you'd still be getting an Xbox Series S for cheaper.
If you have been considering adding a Series S to your setup, especially if the Black Friday Xbox Series X deals are still a bit pricey, then you should act fast as a price as low as this surely won't last very long. The Series S is a desirable console for someone who doesn't want to commit the space or cash to Microsoft's leading console, and for £189 it feels like a steal.
In fact, with some of the storage deals we're starting to see, you'd be able to get the Xbox Series S and a decent amount of external storage (such as a 2TB Seagate drive which is currently only £69.99 on Amazon) for a combined price that would still be cheaper than new 1TB black Xbox Series S model. If you're looking to get started with Xbox gaming, then this is the cheapest way you'll be able to do so this side of the holidays.
