The research looked at “over one trillion visits to U.S. retail sites”, and found out of all those visits the Xbox Series S was among the best selling Black Friday products – and that the fun-sized Microsoft machine outperformed its contemporaries.

Of course, it’s worth pointing out that ever since the latest batch of next-gen consoles launched the PS5 and Xbox Series X have not been readily available.

The stock situation – especially on the PS5 front – is a lot better in the UK than this time last year, and maybe if the PS5 and Xbox Series X were widely available the big Black Friday console winner this time around wouldn’t be the Series S.

But thinking that’s the only reason the Series S is selling so well would be doing a disservice on two key fronts.

Firstly, it would do a disservice to Microsoft who had the foresight to release a next-gen console at a very appealing price point, which has been easier to produce despite the ongoing semi-conductor shortage.

And secondly, it would also do a disservice to the Xbox Series S itself, which is a great little machine.

The recent release of Forza Horizon 5, which looks absolutely gorgeous when running on the Xbox Series S, shows that Microsoft’s vision of a console that won’t break the bank that is capable of delivering next-gen experiences is not a pipe dream, but a reality gamers can enjoy right now.

Plus, the cute and compact design of the Xbox Series S is a sight that you can never grow old of, and the console is easily transportable if you need to take it into a different room or somewhere else.

If you’re after an Xbox Series S then TopCashback right now offers an eight percent cashback rate for purchases of the Xbox Series S on the official Microsoft Store.

This can be used in conjunction with the £15 new member bonus the site is running, which means the console can be picked up for under £250.

However, at the time of writing the Xbox Series S isn’t in stock at the Microsoft Store.
