We thought this deal would be taken down or end abruptly but we can still report that Dell is selling the Xbox Series X for its lowest-ever price! 

You can currently get the Xbox Series X for just $449.99 (was $500) for a $50 saving through the US computing retailer. It's the historic lowest price available on the current-gen Microsoft console and a rate that's yet to beat. We first reported this on Tuesday expecting the idea to be short-lived, but here we are, two days later, and it's still live. This is a great deal, and literally the best time to buy the console if you've been eye it up, and despite it still being live, we wouldn't recommend waiting much longer!

That $50 saving means you can put that money towards some of the best Xbox Series X games or one of the best Xbox Series X accessories such as the best Xbox Series X headsets. Previously, the cheapest it has ever sold in the US has been $468, a saving of $32, but now you're knocking a further $18 off for a rate that can't be beaten. Other retailers are still yet to price match too, so Dell really is offering the best price and the best place to buy the console.

Review Consensus: The Xbox Series X features some truly excellent visual capabilities and in-game performance bolstered by Dolby. Xbox Game Pass is also an excellent inclusion that provides a wealth of titles for a low monthly fee. However, there are few exclusives and new thrills with a standard controller and familiar user interface when compared to the PS5

TRG: 4 stars | Tom's Guide: 4.5 stars | Tom's Hardware: 4 stars | GamesRadar: 4 stars 

Buy it if: You're invested in the Xbox ecosystem and enjoy the likes of Halo and Forza, and you want to play multi-platform releases in 4K with Dolby Atmos. You'll also be getting an amazing deal with Game Pass. 

Don't buy it if: You want must-have exclusives you won't find anywhere else. Everything comes to PC and the previous-gen is still greatly supported. 

There are a ton of great upcoming games available for the Xbox Series X to look forward to including Mortal Kombat 1, Starfield, and Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty coming in the next month alone, so there's plenty to look forward to. There's no telling when this deal could cease so we recommend starting sooner rather than later.
