Local brands and retailers are releasing their Black Friday deals especially early this year for some reason.

We’re not exactly opposed to this given how fervently we search for deals on Black Friday every year so a bit of pre-warning is nice.

For anybody in the market for a new console the local distributor of Xbox, Prima Interactive, has announced deals for two of the Microsoft consoles.

The Xbox One S 1TB will retail for R3 499 on Friday which nets you a discount of R1 900. In addition to the saving you also a three month subscription to Xbox Live for free.

For gamers looking for a 4K console-gaming experience the Xbox One X 1TB will retail for R6 999. Along with the R2 400 haircut on the price, you also get three months of Xbox Live for free.

“This Black Friday, we are packaging three months subscription with every purchase of Xbox One S 1TB and Xbox One X 1TB. This is on top of awesome discounts on the consoles. It doesn’t get better for gaming fans than with Xbox One. With these Black Friday deals, we can bring Xbox One within the reach of more South Africans,” chief executive officer at Prima Interactive, Ian Hepplewhite said in a statement.

Prima Interactive tells us that the discounted consoles will be available at all participating retailers throughout South Africa.
