Black Friday 2016 is fast approaching but Microsoft fast track the long-awaited event when it slashed down the price of the Xbox One in the market.

Since Black Friday is no longer exclusive to America, Microsoft UK took the opportunity to make an advance celebration of the Black Friday an all-time bash. Xbox One along with two selected games, were put into up for grab in Microsoft stores for only £179.99, as per Daily Star.

Likewise, according to Gamenguide, Quantum Break, Halo 5: Guardians, Horizon 3 and Forza are just some of the games that will be included in the two games in the package. For just an extra £20, a 1 TB console can be upgraded. 1 TB console with an Elite Controller only cost £199, a great opportunity to save since an Elite Controller alone in Amazon would cost £110.

In addition, Sam's club in the United States is also offering great bundles at a very low price for Black Saturday's promotional offers. This includes Xbox One and Playstation 4 bundles.

Microsoft's decision to drop prices almost half confirms the upcoming release of its newer, sleeker, slimmer, sharper version of Xbox One, the Xbox One S. Indeed, there is no doubt about the intention to clear out older stocks and to push the newer ones. At the same time, Microsoft is also making the gaming people happy with the discounted price.

"It has been an exciting year for Xbox fans and this holiday is the perfect time to get your hands on the top selling console in the UK, the Xbox One S.", in a statement in Daily Star made by Microsoft spokeswoman.

The spokeswoman also added, "As the launching of Xbox One S this year, Microsoft offers an array of bundles to choose from. It gives the consumers an access to more than 100 console exclusives, a growing catalog of more than 250 titles playable through Backward Compatibility on Xbox one and the fastest and most reliable gaming network with Xbox Live."

The Xbox One S is the only console with built-in Ultra HD Blue-ray and 4K video streaming from content partners like Netflix.
