US customers only, very obviously, and somewhat sadly!
A scan of the Microsoft Store Black Friday 2012 ad published by windows-8.us lists an Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Holiday bundle listed at $199. Awesomeness!
Better start the cars early! And not just that, if you opt for the full Surface package (with bundled Microsoft accessories)
The Surface tablets are already in high demand, so if you were expecting some big price cuts for Black Friday, you, my friend, were expecting a bit too much.
The initial batch of Surface tablets was, of course, sold out within 24 hour after Microsoft started the preorder campaign. But the good thing is that they are back in supply.
As far as sales numbers are concerned, Microsoft has kept the official sales numbers to itself for the time being. This makes it unclear whether Surface is a successful product or otherwise, but one thing is certain, it is one of the most popular Windows 8 device to date.
And sales are expected to rise in 2013, as Windows 8 Pro Surface tablets from different manufacturers make their debut.
The Microsoft Black Friday 2012 deals have been unveiled. The Microsoft store has offered great Black Friday deals in past years and this year is no exception. The only disappointment are the weak deals on the Microsoft Surface tablet.
The Microsoft Store deals include $200 off the Acer Aspire V5, $150 off the Vizio 14-inch Ultrabook, $9.99 Xbox games, up to $100 off Xbox 350 consoles, $12 off the 3-month Xbox live Card, and $50 off Office Home and Student.
The Microsoft Surface Tablet deal is that you get $50 off on the 2nd touch or type cover. The Microsoft Black Friday laptop deals are hot, the rest is so so and also available in other Black Friday sales.
