Best early fall Prime Day Xbox Series X deals
The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s tour de force, a super-powerful box that can play even the most demanding games smoothly and at high resolutions. If you have a 4K TV then it’s the best choice, as it loves that high resolution, and it runs quietly and efficiently, too. It’s not discounted very often at all, so be sure to grab it if you see it at even a slight discount.

There’s no stopping the Xbox Series X, which has power to spare and an imposing design that might be chunky but is also surprisingly stealthy.

If you’re shopping with a slightly lower budget and perhaps don’t have a massive 4K TV, the Series S is a hugely compelling option, much less expensive but therefore better bang for your buck as it still plays all the latest games. You might take a visual downgrade, but it’s also a way smaller box, too.
This year, Prime Day brought a superb deal that took the Series S to under $200, although we haven’t seen any sign of a repeat quite yet.

What to know about buying an Xbox Series X or S
If you’re on the hunt for a new console, there are plenty of key details you should know about Microsoft’s options before you decide which to buy.
Firstly, you’ll want to compare the two models – the Series X versus the Series S. The two have very different prices and power levels, with the Series S very much the most powerful of the two.
The Series S also doesn’t have a disk drive and has lower storage, although a 1TB version is launching later this year but won’t be out in time for Prime Day.
Meanwhile, there’s also the PlayStation 5 as an alternative – comparing it to the Xbox Series X can be instructive, especially because they don’t have access to all the same games.
Knowing about the consoles’ resolution output, storage options and more can all help you pick the right one when you do come to choose between various deals.

Q: Do I need Amazon Prime?
Part of the point of Prime Day and Prime sales events for Amazon is to advertise how its Prime members get all the best deals, so you will indeed need a Prime membership to take advantage of most of them.
That said, price-matching means that some deals will be available on other sites at times, so if you’re really canny you could get lucky and land one elsewhere.
