After five successive months of getting dominated by Sony's PlayStation 4 in the console market, Microsoft will finally make its move come Black Friday with one of the best deals in the history of the Xbox One.
Thanks to a leaked ad for Dell's Black Friday promo, "Doorbuster," it was revealed that Fallout 4 will be thrown in with the Xbox One Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition bundle and will be sold for only $300 ($299.99) on Black Friday. An additional controller, 3.5mm headset and some more items will also come with the purchase.
According to the ad, if the items were bought individually, consumers would need to shell out $470. At the moment, Dell sells Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition bundle, which includes a 500 GB Xbox One and a copy of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, for $349.99. Hence, with the Doorbuster promo, consumers can save as much as $170.
The deal will be exclusive to online purchases made through Dell.com. The promo kicks in at 6pm EST on November 26.
This is one of the sweetest deals since the Xbox One was released. Perhaps the Xbox can upset the PS4's market dominance with the early leak of this promo. Consumers should keep their eyes wide open since other retailers will probably have the same promotions using other Xbox One-exclusive titles during Black Friday.
Nonetheless, it remains to be seen if Sony, with the PS4, plans to match Microsoft's upcoming deal for the Xbox One. If the Japanese company decides to, then it'll be a feast for consumers and one that will be savored, thoroughly.
For those who can't wait, however, a good present-time alternative is the Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition 1 TB console bundle that is currently posted on eBay for $449.99. At the moment of writing, 58 percent of stock has already been sold.
