Microsoft has made a decision to push the Xbox consoles really hard this Thanksgiving, and it means the Xbox One X is dropping to its lowest price yet as part of a Black Fridat sale.

Microsoft has announced that the November Xbox One system update is now available for download.

Because it's a first party game Crackdown 3 will be available for free on Game Pass from day one, assuming you have a subscription. Keyboard and mouse support will be launching with the global smash hit Fornite this coming Wednesday. Warframe, War Thunder, X-Morph Defense, Strange Brigade, Deep Rock Galactic, Bomber Crew, and Vermintide 2 will all get support in November as well.

To show how seriously they are taking keyboard and mouse support, Xbox have also teamed up with Razer to release a wireless keyboard and mouse, compatible with the console. And more titles will come on board in the coming months. For instance, Cortana will now automatically discover and pair your Xbox, removing the need to log in.

Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa Updates: The Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa will receive updates based on fan feedback including improved commands for Xbox Skill for Cortana, Xbox Skill for Alexa support in U.K. (EN-GB), and new commands added including the ability to fully close a game or app and a new navigation mode.

Meanwhile, Xbox players who don't won't the hassle of trying to edit builds quickly and other downsides of using controllers on Fortnite, now have a viable alternative option to switch to keyboard and mouse, without having to purchase a whole PC setup. This lets you use your voice to hit the "A" button or navigate around your console (e.g. up, down, left, right, A button, B button). All of these offers require that you are a new user that has never used these services before, so you will only be able to take advantage of one of the Xbox Live Gold offers in addition to the Xbox Game Pass deal.
