This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.

Heads up, vacation customers: The Xbox Collection S is presently in inventory at Walmart. In a approach, that is not information: In contrast to the newer Nintendo Switch OLED and the extra highly effective Xbox Collection X and PS5, the Collection S has all the time been comparatively simple to acquire since its November 2020 launch. 

However we’re highlighting it right here as a result of — at the same time as of us proceed to pay huge premiums for the possibility to snag a PS5 — we have discovered the Xbox Collection S to be a great little gaming box when paired with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Sure, loads of avid gamers shake their heads at this $300 console as a result of it does not ship “true 4K” gaming. That is true, as is the truth that it packs a comparatively paltry 512GB of storage (a proprietary expansion card costs a whopping $220). It does not play disc-based video games or films, and should you’re awaiting upcoming PlayStation exclusives like Horizon Forbidden West or God of War: Ragnarok, you will not discover them right here. 

However as somebody who’s owned a Collection S for the previous 11 months, I feel the advantages far outweigh these caveats. After all, the Collection S presents all these different huge cross-platform video games of the season — the most recent entries within the Battlefield, Madden, Name of Obligation and Grand Theft Auto collection, to call a couple of. And due to Sport Go, I’ve entry to dozens of different nice video games at no additional cost, together with the Xbox-exclusive Halo Infinite when it hits on December 8. Not too shabby.
