Q: what's different with this bundle (holiday console) than buying a regular series s console? looks like same contents?

submitted by Bob - 1 year ago
  • A: no, your total is still 249. the 249 apparently is with gift card applied. they worded it to think 249 is price plus a gift card. arguing with customer service about it now.

    submitted byDan - 1 year ago
  • A: Thre is no difference. It's just a holiday promotion on the Series S that's being discounted to $249. But Target (until 11/19) is giving you an additional $50 Target gift card as well.

    submitted byMike - 1 year ago
  • A: its the exact same its just the holiday bundle is cheaper

    submitted byhdmi - 1 year ago

Xbox Series S

Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
Ange - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
The Xbox Series S is a budget-friendly gaming console that punches above its weight, offering impressive performance and a vast game library for its price. I bought this for my nephew as a gift for Christmas and he has enjoyed it well. Powered by a custom CPU and GPU, it delivers smooth gameplay and visually appealing graphics at up to 1440p resolution with ray tracing. The console's compact design fits well in any setup, while the inclusion of Xbox Game Pass enhances its value. However, the limited storage capacity and absence of a disc drive may be drawbacks for some. Overall, the Xbox Series S is an excellent choice for budget-conscious gamers seeking an immersive gaming experience without compromising too much on performance.

This was a Christmas gift for my son as it was on sale and for a great deal so I couldn't pass it up. It's now almost April and so far it is still working fine and without any issues with the console or the controller. It was recommended to me to get rechargeable batteries for the controller since of course it's a wireless controller and has batteries. So far that has been working great as the batteries it comes with, aren't rechargeable and only lasted about a month. I love the size as it's easy to put up anywhere and easy to transport. I knew it was the digital-only version (and clearly states so) which is the version I wanted since discs take up space to store and I was planning on getting Game Pass anyways instead of buying a bunch of games right away. We are loving it. The only improvement I would have preferred was there to be two controllers instead of one, but it wasn't hard to find a 2nd controller so that wasn't much of an issue at all.

Got this for my son he previously had an Xbox one and this was his birthday upgrade. Set up was easy and connecting his existing account was easy. He’s happy, I’m happy. Plus the price was a great value.

Ash - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Make sure to do your research on this before buying! I bought as a Xmas gift for my boys and didn’t realize it doesn’t take discs. Each game you buy to download takes up tons of storage so after 4 games we needed to buy an external hard drive. Games take for ever to download too like 2-4 hours! It’s been a great Xbox we just prefer the physical discs!

For those posting negative reviews because you received a defective model. Don’t post, there is no point. Just return it or exchange it. Easy. This console does what it says it does. It’s meant to play games and that’s what It does.

This gift was for my grandson for Christmas. He was so excited! The console came with one controller and it doesn’t hold a charge. This is very disappointing. It is a brand new unit- not refurbished.

The Best Console - 1 year ago
The Xbox series S is literally the best console ever. Not only is it good for the price, this thing runs insanely fast, at still 4K Ultra HD. Would recommend, and the price is extremely good, compared to the PS5's insane price of $499.99.

The best value in console gaming. If you don’t need 4K gaming this is the console to get. If you love playing retro games this is the best emulator out there.

This was the ONLY thing my son asked for for Christmas. His only gift. Got it all set up Christmas morning and it doesn't work. It connects and then glitches continuously. We tried uninstalling and connecting again, and still the same issues. Will be heading to target today (12/26) to try to exchange but it appears most places are sold out. Really bummed :(
