Reconsidering Keeping Xbox Series S from Black Friday Deal 2022

The Xbox Series X is difficult to justify right now if you only play casual games like MultiVersus or any other casual game.

Now for someone who is playing the latest AAA titles it can be hard to store much on the 512GB SSD (364GB Approx), whereas the Series X has 1TB SSD (802GB Approx).

  • Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0: 62GB
  • Cyberpunk 2077: 86.44GB
  • Elden Ring: 49.04GB

TOTAL: 197.48GB

There would be about 166.52GB of space left on the Xbox Series S SSD as opposed to 604.52GB on the Xbox Series X. The Series S will quickly fill up.

Purchasing the 1TB expansion storage with the Series S costs an additional $199, as much as the console itself!

There have been so many great Xbox Series S deals recently.

512GB Microsoft Xbox Series S (Woot!/Amazon) $219.99

512GB Microsoft Xbox Series S Console (Holiday Edition) (Amazon) $239.99

512GB Microsoft Xbox Series S Console (Holiday Edition) (Walmart) $239.99

512GB Microsoft Xbox Series S Console (Holiday Edition) (Target) $249.99

With Target, if you created a wedding/baby registry you can get a 15% coupon that applies to your XSS purchase:

  • Baby: Eight weeks before your expected arrival date 
  • Wedding: The week of your event date 

While buying an Xbox Series X may not be a good idea for casual gamers, if you want to play games that can no longer be purchased digitally, such as Forza Horizon 1, it might make sense.

Immortals Fenyx Rising (Xbox One or Xbox Series - GameStop) $10

Forza Horizon 1 - Xbox 360 (Xbox One or Xbox Series - eBay) $5+

Gears 5 Standard Edition (Xbox One | Xbox Series X - Best Buy) $5

Since I own a digital console, I have purchased more games digitally from other countries and activated them using a VPN. Using the marketplace, Eneba. However, this also works for owners of Xbox One or Xbox Series X.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (Eneba) $1.90 ($39.99 on Xbox)

Cyberpunk 2077 (Eneba) $12.39 ($29.99 on Xbox)

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt GOTY (Eneba) $7.39 ($9.99+ on Xbox)

You may need to scroll down the page to see the lowest prices.

It is now necessary to use an Argentina VPN in order to activate the keys provided by Eneba (at least with the provided deals above). In case you purchase a different offer, you may need a different country IP address. You will be warned if you attempt to retrieve the key from a non-Argentina IP address after payment.

As soon as you have selected and purchased your game key. Connect with Surfshark VPN and connect to the country the key is for. Head over to to redeem the code while connected to the VPN. Now you can download to your Xbox(s) and enjoy a great deal! :)

IMO, I wouldn't upgrade unless the Xbox Series X was available for $400 or less. But, deals like that have been popping up more and more lately.
