Xbox Live Gift Card
Xbox Live Gift Cards are the ultimate gift choice for all passionate gamers. These cards can be redeemed at Microsoft’s online store, on Windows, as well as Xbox. Gamers are very strict when it comes to their gaming choices, so opting for a gift card instead of purchasing an actual game might be a mistake - you never know whether they will like your choice.
These gift cards never expire and they can be used to purchase movies, TV shows, video games, applications, devices, and a lot of other cool things. The only downside, though, is that you can’t redeem these cards in physical stores. Most online stores, on the other hand, will accept Xbox Live gift cards.
They are very easy and convenient to use. After purchasing a gift card, customers can choose the email address where the gift card will be delivered. Once the recipient receives the gift card, they will see a unique code. This code is used to redeem the Xbox Live gift card amount on any item or items of choice.
Since Black Friday is approaching, this can also be the perfect way to show someone that you care. And what’s better than providing your loved ones with a way to purchase their favorite Xbox Live products? Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the perfect time to surprise your family and get some jaw-dropping deals.

Hyperkin is reviving the Xbox 360's iconic controller for Xbox Series X/S and PC
Gaming accessory maker Hyperkin is creating a licensed replica of the Xbox 360’s iconic gamepad (via The Verge ). Named “Xenon” – a reference to the console’s prerelease codename and IBM-made PowerPC processor – the controller brings back the nearly two-decade-old design while adding a few modern features, including a detachable USB-C cable and headphone jack. It also comes with Menu, View and Share buttons, making the controller fully compatible with the Xbox Series X/S. The new gamepad will also work with Windows 10 and 11 PCs, though it won't include wireless support.Today, 17 years ago, the #Xbox360 launched to much acclaim. Now announcing the Xenon, a replica of the official #Xbox 360 Controller - licensed with Designed for Xbox - for Xbox Series X|S/Xbox One/Windows 10|11 PCs.Full circle. Back in control. Details to come!#Keep05Alivepic.twitter.com/3ElNhLNdrN — Hyperkin (@Hyperkin) November 22, 2022 Hyperkin will offer the Xenon controller in white, black, pink and red colorways. No word on pricing or availability yet. This isn’t Hyperkin’s first foray into nostalgia bait. The company previously worked with original Xbox designer Seamus Blackley to create a new version of Microsoft’s “Duke” controller . Judging from the renders Hyperkin shared, the controller may hew too closely to its original counterpart. For all its strengths, the Xbox 360 gamepad had a notoriously bad d-pad that was known for being mushy. Here’s hoping Hyperkin takes some creative license.
The Xbox Series S is $50 off right now
The Xbox Series S doesn't see a lot of discounts, but right now Adorama has knocked $50 off the sticker price, which is the lowest we're seeing anywhere. We originally saw this as Adorama's deal of the day last Friday and added it to our weekly deals recap. For those of us who may have slept on it, they still have units left at the $250 price. We reviewed the Series S when it came out, calling it the next-gen starter pack. Even though it doesn't support gameplay in 4K, it still plays incredibly smoothly. And the console itself is downright adorable. Thanks to the FPS boost technology added to the Series S and X, older games, including many made for Xbox One, will look and perform better with faster frame rates. Buy Xbox Series S at Adorama - $250Unlike the Series X, which as far as we know hasn't budged from its $500 list price, the Series S only plays digital titles, with no slot to insert physical game media. Microsoft is likely counting on most people going for an Xbox Game Pass membership, currently $10 per month for the Console tier, and $15 per month for the Ultimate tier. Either level unlocks a library with hundreds of game to download and play, sort of like Netflix for games. Memberships also grant discounts to many of the titles you might want to buy outright. Another caveat to note when comparing the Series X and S, is the Series S has less SSD storage, with 512GB on-board, compared to the 1TB of storage you get with the Series X. If you like to keep lots of titles on hand, without having to delete, you'll have to weigh that preference against the price of the Series X. Seagate does make an expansion card built specifically for the Xbox Series X/S, but at $200, you end up losing most of the money you saved buying the cheaper console. Despite any caveats, we found the performance impressive and loved the look of the physical box. For casual console gamers, it's a great option. Especially when you consider all you'll get out of backward-compatible games from the Game Pass library. If you've been waiting for a discount before you dive in, this is the best deal we've found.
