The Xbox Series S is in stock at GameStop — practically a deal in itself — and if you snag one, you’ll get three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $9.99. That’s a savings of $35, and will instantly jumpstart your library with hundreds of games that include Forza Horizon 5, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Back 4 Blood. The Series S is also just a great little console, with zippy load times, impressive 1440p gaming performance and a handy Quick Resume feature for juggling multiple titles.
