Scored an Xbox Series X pre-order? Here are the cheapest Aussie prices on launch titles

It’s obvious that everyone’s eager for the launch of the next generation of gaming consoles, with both the PS5 and Xbox Series X pre-orders selling out in a matter of minutes when they went live.

If you were lucky enough to grab a pre-order of the flagship Microsoft console, or its slimmer sibling the Xbox Series S, then you’ll likely want to pair it with one of the awesome titles available on the console at launch.

While the next-gen gaming titles have brought with them a necessary yet unpleasant price hike, there’s still a good chance to save on the boosted retail price of Xbox Series X games.

We’ve had a good hunt around at the current prices on offer in Australia and found the best bet across the board is buying physical copies of the games from Amazon Australia.

Below, we’ve selected some of the best games and lowest prices, so have a browse so you can stock up in time for the November 10 launch.

NBA 2K21 | AU$88 at Amazon (usually AU$109.95)

Most Xbox games making the transition to Series X are pretty straightforward: they’ll just work, some will receive a patch. But if you want the next-gen version 2K21 you can’t just buy the current-gen version, which is AU$59. Only the current-gen Mamba Forever Edition version gets a free next-gen upgrade, and that currently costs AU$137.16, so this is still the better deal.View Deal

Yakuza: Like a Dragon | AU$74.99 at Amazon (usually AU$99.95)

The seventh mainline Yakuza game features a new protagonist and a pivot into turn-based combat. In other words: it’s a landmark instalment, and it’s going to look silky smooth on Xbox Series X.View Deal
