Good news, Xbox fans! While it’s still frustratingly difficult to get your hands on an Xbox Series X, accessing next-gen titles just got a little bit easier. Or at least more affordable. Right now at Woot you can pick up the Xbox Series S, the smaller digital-only next-gen Xbox, on sale for $20 off. While it’s only a discount of about 7% this is one of, if not the first, deals we’ve seen on either of the new generation of Xboxes.

This offer is only valid until 1 a.m. ET (10 p.m. PT) at the latest, or until stock runs out, so act fast if you’re hoping to grab a console for yourself.

The Series S is the lite version of the bulkier Xbox Series X. While it can still play next-gen titles like Halo: Infinite, it features some different specs compared to its full-size counterpart. For one, the Series S doesn’t have a disk drive, so all of your games will have to be digital downloads. And because of that, the 512 GB storage will fill up pretty quickly, though that is easily remedied with an expansion card.

While it doesn’t support 4K picture, it does match the 120 FPS frame rate of the Series X. And at less than 3″ thick, it’s also significantly more compact. If you’re hardcore about your gaming, it might be worth it to wait out the stocking issues and try and snag a Series X, but if you’re just looking for a way to enjoy some of those next-gen games, the Series S is a great option for more casual gamers. Especially when you can find it on sale.

If you have a new Microsoft Xbox Series X or Series S — whether you’re upgrading or starting fresh — you might already be hunting for some new accessories to go with it. After all, while the out-of-box experience is great for both consoles, there’s not a whole lot in that box beyond the console and a single wireless controller.

To help improve your gaming experience, here are some of our favorite Xbox accessories at the moment. We’re constantly testing new gear so this list will be updated regularly.

Given there’s only one controller in the box with the Xbox Series X and S, you’ll probably want at least one more to play with friends and family. This Xbox wireless controller has it all. It can be used wired or wireless. The thumbsticks can be swapped for greater precision or faster speed. Holding the controller, your fingers fall naturally between two pairs of remappable paddles.

The controller stores three profile configurations for the paddles and it’s preset for FPS, sport and racing games; a button on the bottom lets you quickly switch between them. Remapping can be done on the fly, so there’s no need for an additional app. There are also switches for the triggers so you can change them from a long pull to a quick click.

And then there’s the look. You can choose everything from the color of the buttons to the style of the thumbsticks to whether you want rumble installed. Scuf also has a variety of faceplates in different colors and designs.
