Xbox Series S becomes best-seller in Amazon UK's Black Friday sales

By Tom West,

Microsoft's Xbox Series S took the limelight during the Black Friday sales on Amazon UK, stealing the number-one best-selling spot in the retail site's gaming category.

As the Black Friday sales rage on, Microsoft's small, yet powerful, Xbox Series S zipped into the top spot of Amazon UK's gaming best-sellers list, before swiftly running out of stock and eventually sliding down to second on the chart where it sits at the time of writing — it's hard to keep on shifting units when there are no units left to shift, after all. The Microsoft Store is still offering the Xbox Series S, though, if you're after the console for a discount.

The sales are still offering up discounts on plenty of devices and games for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. The huge Black Friday sale on the Xbox Store, for instance, has slashed the prices of almost 1,000 games, and hardware is receiving similar treatment on the official store.

Over on Microsoft Store, you can currently pick up the Xbox Series S for a 24% discount in the UK, dropping the price to £189.99. Similarly, many variants of the official Xbox Wireless Controller and the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 have had discounts applied.
