The Xbox One holiday bundles for 2015

You may not think of Microsoft as a retailer. But the Redmond-based company does sell quite a bit of merchandise, from Xbox consoles to smartphones. And just like almost every other retailer, it will be offering some sweet deals on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

The best offer is probably the Xbox One with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for $299, its lowest price ever from Microsoft. People looking to upgrade now that the Xbox One can play some Xbox 360 games may also want to consider some holiday bundles, which are $50 off. Some bundles include the Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Bundle for $449 or with Rise of the Tomb Raider for $349.

But it’s not just Xbox deals from Microsoft. Starting today, 1,000 items are available for 10 cents, but only for 10 days as part of a celebration for Windows 10’s first holiday season. Items include 10 cent rentals of blockbuster movies like Jurassic World and Terminator Genisys, as well as apps and songs costing just a dime.

The Lenovo Ideacentre Stick turns any TV into a Windows 10 computer. Microsoft will be selling it for $69 on Black Friday.

The Black Friday sale also includes some killer deals on third-party hardware. The Dell Inspiron 15 will be down to just $399 from a normal $749 price. If you’re looking for something a little smaller, the Lenovo Ideacentre Stick can plug into the back of any HDMI-equipped TV, turning it into a Windows 10 machine. That will be $69, down from the standard $149.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL will be available with a free display dock, if you’re interested in getting a Windows phone and using the new desktop-like productivity features. Also, don’t be fooled by the Work & Play bundle: while it’s a great deal, the Black Friday price is the same as it is the rest of the year.

There aren’t any deals on the latest Surface items either, which is a bit of a bummer. But the Surface Book is probably in short supply after a set of pretty stellar reviews earlier this year. There will also be a deal on the Surface Pro 3, with savings of up to $200 in certain configurations.
