When a new games console is first released, it normally has a very expensive price tag. Often these entertainment consoles are released just in time for Christmas, which is why a lot of savvy consumers wait for the Christmas sales.

There are now Christmas Xbox deals all over Amazon. You will find that each individual store has slightly different deals and packages offering different bonuses and perks. Obviously, as it is Microsoft’s latest new-gen console release, the Xbox One will be widely available. There is so much more to this console than just gaming though.

It is actually an entertainment center that allows adults and kids to play their favorite Xbox games, play music, stream movies, watch television and a whole lot more.

The online Microsoft online matching system has been improved to give Xbox One owners a better experience. The system prevents trolls and other people who act rude or don’t play fairly from being selected to play with you. While you are waiting for the system to find a suitable player and connect you, you don’t have to stare at the same screen and can go off and do other things through the console. You can also switch easily and quickly between different games apps.

Microsoft have updated and improved the privacy settings on the Xbox One, allowing you to control precisely what personal information is shared and with whom. As standard with this new model in the Xbox family you get a HDMI cable, chat headphone headset, controller and power supply lead.

It is worth noting that the previous model, the Xbox 360 will also go on sale this year, for a much lower price than previous years. Along with a controller, this console also comes with a 4GB hard drive. That is more than enough memory to store whatever you like from pictures, music, movies and of course, games. It also features Xbox Live, the application you need to play online with other gamers, whether they are your friends or complete strangers.

Obviously, along with the actual consoles you will want to make sure you get your hands on some great games and accessories. It is important to be fast as these items usually sell out very quickly during the Christmas shopping season. Games such as Middle Earth Shadow of Modor, Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection are amongst those rumored to be the most popular this year.

As quite a few new Xbox games were released in October, you can expect these to be on sale in December at reduced prices. Many of these may feature in bundle deals or free offers along as part of a Christmas Xbox deal in 2014.

Don’t forget to get a pair of extra headsets as it can be quite a pain when they break and you don’t have any spare. These vary widely in price, with cheaper sets retailing at around $20 and more expensive brands selling for $100. You will find though that many Xbox compatible headsets go on sale during Christmas time. Be warned though, Turtle Beach headsets, a popular brand, sold out quickly last year.

This year, you should be on the lookout in particular for the Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Four High Performance Xbox One set. The Xbox One Wireless Controller is another accessory you should look out for as these will also go on sale in time for Christmas this year. The design is similar to the 360 controller, but has been upgraded to have better grips and more responsive buttons.
