Black Friday and its numerous extensions (Cyber Monday, Just Buy Our Damn Stuff Thursday) are a magical time in retail, when the veil between wallet and willpower is at its thinnest. Which games, gadgets and gear made it past your defenses this year? I’ll start.
I bought XCOM: Enemy Unknown five years ago and still haven’t touched it.
An SSD is the best upgrade you can give your older computer, and Samsung’s 850 EVO line is the most popular one there is. A worldwide NAND shortage has reversed the previously inexorable downward price trend on these things over the past year or so, but today on Amazon, the 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB models are all down to…
If you were hoping for a discount on the Nintendo Switch for Black Friday, I think you’re probably going to be disappointed. But you can still get the official Joy-Con charging dock for $19, or the AA battery pack for $15, which are both all-time lows. Hey, it’s better than nothing.
Whether you’re re-upping your own subscription or giving them out as gifts, both PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold are on sale for Black Friday.
If you still haven’t picked up a copy of Final Fantasy XV (and you definitely should), Amazon’s marked PS4 digital copies down to $20 today, and physical Xbox One discs to $19, the best prices we’ve seen so far.
Adorn your desk with your favorite light-up pixelated video game characters, now just $10 each.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus only just came out (and it’s really good unless you think Nazis are very fine people), but you can already get it for $25.
If you own a PS4, Uncharted 4 is basically a must-own title, and Amazon’s marked it down to an all-time low $15 today, which is actually $5 less than we were expecting to see it for.
Whether you already own a game console, or you’re buying a new one today, it never hurts to grab some extra controllers for under $40. The Xbox One S gamepad is on sale for $39 in both black and white, while the DualShock 4 is $38 in a whole array of colors.
Sony’s WH1000XM2s put the noise-canceling headphone world on notice when they were released earlier this year, and now, you can get them at a discount for the first time ever. They’re still an investment at $298, but if you spend any significant amount of time in planes, trains, or just a noisy office, they’ll…
For the first time since Prime Day, Amazon’s offering a sitewide discount on all physical books they sell; save $5 on any order of $20 or more with code GIFTBOOK17.
I doubt it will last long, but the PS4 Slim for $200 plus a $50 GameStop gift card is the best PS4 deal of Black Friday, and the best PS4 deal ever. Don’t hesitate if you want one.
If you’re looking to grab an Xbox One S this holiday season, Microsoft has a ton of selection, and great incentives. Pretty much every console bundle is discounted by $50, with prices starting at a paltry $189, plus you get to pick an extra game of your choice, albeit from a fairly uninspiring selection.
Black Friday’s PlayStation VR bundles promised to be the best deals yet on the excellent virtual reality system, and two of them are live now.
Buying digital usually isn’t the way to get the best video game prices on Black Friday, but these PS4 download deals are as good or better than the physical disc deals we expect to see this weekend, and they’re available right now.
If you want to build a home theater PC, you won’t find a better starting point than this. This tiny box contains an Intel Core i7 chip, Intel Iris Pro 6200 graphics (which should be sufficient for moderate gaming), various display outputs, and integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas, all for an all-time low $250.
If you have any Razer gaming gear on your holiday shopping list, a bunch of their Black Friday sales are already live, including the ultra-sleek Razer Blade Stealth.
You’re going to have a lot of quality family time to fill over the next few months, so it’s a great time to pick up some board games and puzzles. A whole bunch from Ravensburger are on sale, today only on Amazon, with options available for every age group.
Thanksgiving is almost here, and that means Black Friday is looming as well. And if you’ve been holding out for a better deal on that new laptop or gaming console, now’s the time to browse for deals.
