Starting on November 19th (in the US) you'll be able to get an Xbox One X for only $32 a month for 24 months. But the best part is, next year you'll be able to trade it in for an Xbox Scarlet! This deal includes 24 months of Game Pass Ultimate as well, so you are actually saving money in the long run! If you'd prefer an Xbox S, you can do that for $22 a month and trade it in for a Scarlet after 18 months as well!
Also this week:
- Sony is killing Playstation Vue early next year
- EA is going to start selling games (and EA Access) on Steam again
- Death Stranding is coming to PC next summer
- Google Stadia is getting it's own first party studio
- Steam might start asking you if you are really sure about your old reviews
