If you’ve been on the hunt for a new console today might be the day to nab one. Amazon is offering a rare deal on an Xbox Series S bundle with the console, 1 month of Game Pass Ultimate, and a $25 Xbox gift card for $379.95. The Series S alone retails for that price which means the bundle will save you $42 in total.
The Series S may lack the raw processing power and features of the Series X or the PS5 but it’s still an excellent option for anyone looking to jump into the next generation of gaming. The Series S can play the same games as the Series X but at a lower resolution of 1440p which means you will be able to enjoy all the latest releases such as Dying Light 2, Elden Ring, and Halo Infinite. The console also gets you access to the massive Xbox back catalogue with numerous games from every generation playable on the diminutive console.
Microsoft has had to make a few compromises with the Series S to justify the lower price. The Series S isn’t able to render newer games in 4K, so it might not be the best choice for anyone who values the highest fidelity possible. There’s also no optical disc drive and the digital-only console only has 512GB of hard drive space. With the increasing size of modern games that hard drive will full up quickly, fortunately, it’s pretty easy to upgrade the storage capacity and many options are available should you wish to add a bit more room to your console.
In addition to the console, this deal from Amazon also comes with one month's access to Microsoft’s Game Pass Ultimate service. With an Ultimate subscription, players can access more than 100 titles on their consoles, PCs and Android mobile devices. Ultimate members can stream original Xbox classics, along with newer releases optimized for the Xbox Series X, like Doom Eternal Halo Infinite, The Hitman Trilogy, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon which will be free-to-play with this subscription.
New games are frequently added to Game Pass, with many Xbox Game Studios titles being added the same day as their physical releases. Ultimate subscribers also get access to Xbox Live Gold for multiplayer gameplay as well as an EA Play membership with access to a collection of Electronic Arts games.
Finally, the sweeten the deal Amazon has included a $25 Xbox gift card that can be used to purchase digital games such as the just-released Elden Ring from From Software.
While they are generally easier to find than the PS5 and Series X, it's rare to see any discounts on the Series S. We expect this deal to sell out quickly so act fast.
