Microsoft’s Black Friday deals start now, at prices as low as 10 cents – CNET



The newest Black Friday deal is already under way — and the deals start as low as 10 cents.

Microsoft is on a “10” kick because of its Windows 10 operating system (which, the company reminds us, just passed 110 million device installs). Thus, 10 days of deals — now through November 29 — with prices on digital items starting at just a dime.

Movies, songs and apps will be available for 10 cents, while music albums will be sold for $1. Today’s music selection on the Microsoft Store includes “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, “What do you mean,” by Justin Bieber, and “Timber” by Pitbull. Albums for $1 include “Lazaretto” by Jack White, “Title” by Meghan Trainor and “Four” by One Direction.

Movie rentals for 10 cents include”Jurassic World,” “Terminator Genisys” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ while games include Angry Birds Star Wars, Where’s My Water, Hitman Go and Bejeweled Live.

Meanwhile, as we already knew, the Xbox One will be available in console bundles starting at $299 — including at least one game — which is the cheapest we’ve ever seen them. Meanwhile gamers can try Xbox Live Gold for one month for $1 and pick up Battlefield Hardline $27.99 ($23.99 w/Gold), Evolve for $20 or $16, Halo Master Chief Edition for $34.99 or $29.99, or Mortal Kombat X $34.99 or $29.99.

Furthermore, Microsoft has also announced the “Work and Play Bundle” — which includes a one-year subscription to Office 365 Home, Xbox Live Gold, Skype Unlimited World, Wi-Fi hotspot, Assure software support, plus a $60 promotional gift card — will cost just $149.

Microsoft’s PC partners are also introducing dozens of deals on Windows 10 devices. The one that caught our attention: the Lenovo IdeaCentre Stick 300 (which turns any TV into a full-on Windows PC) is now $69. It’s a near doppelgänger to the Intel Compute Stick pictured above.
