Black Friday comes early for Xbox gamers

Starting this Friday, gamers can save big on Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles.

The day after Thanksgiving is a time when Americans usually forget everything they’re thankful for and hop in line at their favorite retailers. This year, Xbox is cashing in on the Black Friday hype without making gamers stand in heinous check-out isles.

Even better than avoiding long queues at stores are deals that come early. So, this year, Xbox is kicking off Black Friday a full week ahead of schedule for Xbox gamers. Starting this Friday, November 20th, Xbox owners who are subscribed to Xbox Live Gold will be able to access the first round of Black Friday game deals.

Gamers who aren’t subscribed will still get deals a few days early when it opens up to everyone on the 24th.

For hints at what Xbox One and Xbox 360 games will be on sale later this week, check out this nifty promo straight from the official Xbox YouTube channel.
