Microsoft's Black Friday Deals Include $100 off Windows Mixed Reality Headsets

Black Friday 2017 is now less than couple of weeks from now and early deals have started to emerge online.

Yes, Microsoft's HDR-friendly, upscale 4K-capable console that began its life at $399 one short year ago is already dropping down to sub-$200 levels this year - which, for the record, is over $100 less than Sony's $299 PS4 bundles on offer right now. If you're eyeing bundles, rather than standalone consoles, you can save up to $50 on any 500 GB or 1 TB Xbox One S bundle from the 19th through the 27th. On the off chance that you buy a Surface Laptop (either i5 256GB or i7) at that point Microsoft is packaging the Harman Kardon Invoke Cortana speaker for nothing out of pocket.

Star Trek icon George Takei accused of sexual assault by former model
Brunton claimed he "passed out" at the actor's home after a few drinks and woke to find Takei touching him inappropriately. Brunton said he kept the story quiet for years but chose to speak up in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal .

If 500GB is simply too little space to hold all of your games and media, Microsoft will also be discounting the 1TB Xbox One S bundles by $50, while all other Xbox One S bundles will see a $50 price reduction.

Black Friday weekend has always been a great time to be a gamer: If you're careful, patient and observative - which, we all know gamers are - you can make out like a bandit.

Children hurt when stairwell collapses in San Diego
Cops said four kids were taken to hospital for major injuries, including spinal injuries, after the 10x30 ft platform collapsed. City building inspectors arrived to survey the scene Saturday night and will continue to investigate the collapse on Sunday.

Microsoft's Surface line is often on sale, and Black Friday is no exception. Blockbuster games like Forza Motorsport 7, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2, and Forza Horizon 3 are each $20 off and you can save $20 on Xbox Wireless Controllers, $15 on Stereo Headsets, and $10 on 3-month or 6-month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. Dell's Alienware 17 laptop is available for $1,600, but again, doesn't list the original price.

As for those who are holding out for the Nintendo Switch until the Black Friday to take advantage of the bonanza's discounts, the Walmart Black Friday 2017 ad doesn't include savings on the aforementioned console, which is understandable given the soaring high demand for the device. Check out these and other great deals starting November 20 on Lenovo's website.
