Xbox Series X is the world’s most powerful console on paper, bringing the best of Microsoft’s gaming ecosystem to your living room. Combined with Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X offers hundreds of high-quality games in crisp 4K, often pushing frame rates up to 120 FPS on supported 120Hz TVs and monitors.
For this week’s Prime Day sales force, it looks like Microsoft is getting in on the action as well. Its refurbishment department is selling a renewed (pre-owned, but refurbished) Xbox Series X for just £383, putting it well below the typical asking price of £450.
The Xbox Series X is a real beast of a console, but it’s by no means cheap. Grabbing this refurbished unit from Microsoft can net you a really big savings, leaving you with extra cash to buy an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
Xbox Game Pass gets you all of Microsoft’s in-house games as part of the subscription, including games like Sea of Thieves, Halo Infinite, Gears of War, and Forza Horizon. The Xbox Series X is also guaranteed to get major upcoming titles like Starfield and Elder Scrolls VI, with many, many more Xbox games coming through 2023 and beyond.
Xbox Series X upgrades previous generation consoles with an SSD, cutting load times from minutes to seconds. Xbox Series X shines brightest on 4K OLED or QLED TVs, where HDR lighting adds a new dimension to gaming, with UHD resolutions boosting clarity and sharpness for pristine visuals. Xbox Series X also has a Blu-ray player for your home movie collection and can be integrated into your main TV remote using HDMI-CEC capabilities or even Amazon Echo speakers.
