Black Friday-beating Target Xbox Series X deal is here for today only

This incredible Xbox Series X deal from Target brings Microsoft's best gaming console down a whopping $150 for one day only ahead of Christmas.

Target Deal of the Day Xbox Series X: an Xbox Series X console with controller

The Black Friday weekend may be a not-so-distant memory now, and many Xbox players would have gotten their fill of the best gaming deals around as the holiday season kicked off. For those who missed out but are still trying to bag a post-payday bargain on a shiny new Xbox Series X deal before Christmas, there’s hope thanks to the Target Deal of the Day – but you’ve got to act fast.

Right now on Target you can snag yourself an Xbox Series X for just $349.99 – you read that right. Of course, this comes with the caveat that you have to be a Target Circle member, but we reckon it’s more than worth the signup considering the whopping $150 saving you’ll be making on Microsoft’s latest and greatest console. For the extra dough, you’ll be able to pick up a couple of the best Xbox games, or some of the best Xbox accessories to augment your gaming experience.

$349.99 is the lowest we’ve ever seen the Series X go – something corroborated by camelcamelcamel which reports that it had only dropped to that price once before on December 1. With plenty of exciting new Xbox games in the works, now is the perfect time to invest in current-gen hardware. As a daily deal that expires at 11:59 PM on December 13, you’ll have to make your mind up quickly as to whether you wish to pull the trigger – our Xbox Series X review can help with that.

Boasting 4K support, up to 120 FPS gameplay, and a host of other top-end features, the Xbox Series X is the best way to enjoy Xbox exclusives. It’s categorically one of the best gaming consoles out there, and thanks to Xbox Game Pass there’s a vast library of titles – including many of the latest day-one releases – for you to enjoy for little cost.

So, if you’re hoping to jump into the best FPS games like The Finals, or revel in the best RPG games like Baldur’s Gate 3, then we don’t expect a cheaper way to do so to materialize for a long time.
