BEST DEALS LIVE RIGHT NOW
This Black Friday is already a big one for gamers — an overwhelming one, too.
If you’re currently stress-crying at your computer screen over whether to buy a PlayStation 4 bundle, an Xbox One X with a year of Game Pass, the versatile Nintendo Switch, or a combination of the three (plus their multiple iterations), we’re here to sweep you off your feet and save the day.
We found all the best gaming deals for Black Friday so that you can save your money (and your sanity), and will be aggregating them here as more roll in — but for now, here’s what’s currently live.
Where to buy a Nintendo Switch: Probably Amazon or Walmart. You’re going to want to go for a bundle deal if you can (most of which offer the console and an additional game, but some include accessories like microSD cards, cases, and more). Right now, you can get Switch bundles with games like Minecraft or the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, as well as the popular Mario Kart 8 Deluxe package deal (which is just $299 at Walmart, and also bundled with a $25-off coupon at GameStop). You’ll most likely be able to find one with the recently released Pokémon Sword and Shield, too, but we haven’t seen that one yet (we’ll keep our eyes out).
Where to buy a Nintendo Switch Lite: GameStop, plain and simple. It’s the only retailer we know of so far that’s offering any sort of deal on the Nintendo Switch Lite. To be honest, we were shocked to see a deal at all for the Switch’s newest iteration — it was released only just two months ago. The gaming-centric retailer is selling the Nintendo Switch Lite at full price, but when you buy one, you’ll get a $25-off coupon back. It’s not much, but it’s something, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better offer.
Where to buy an Xbox One S: A lot of big retailers are offering similar Xbox One S bundles this year, so you’ll have a good chance at getting one no matter the store or site you choose. So far, two of the best bundle offers we could find are this Xbox One S + Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order set for $199.99 (get it at Walmart, Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy), and this Xbox One S + NBA 2K20 package for $199.99 (also at Walmart, Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy.) Both games are two of this year’s best sellers. Another great bundle, which is going for $149.99 at most retailers, comes with the Xbox One S console, as well as copies of Fortnite, Sea of Thieves, and Minecraft.
Where to buy an Xbox One X: Similar to the Xbox One S, the more powerful and graphically superior Xbox One X is seeing a lot of the same deals across the retail landscape (which is good news for you, since you’ll pretty much have your pick of the litter). The One X is also being offered in bundle form with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, as well as another option with NBA 2K20 — but, you can also grab this awesome Gears 5 limited edition Xbox One X bundle at GameStop for just $349.99 (that’s $150 off), which comes with a copy of the game itself, and specially designed skins for the console and controller.
Where to buy a PlayStation 4: A lot of retailers are offering this one — including Amazon, Walmart, and GameStop — but there’s no doubt that this will end up being the most popular PlayStation 4 bundle this year. For just $199, you can get a 1TB PS4 console that comes with three of the best games of the past decade: God of War, The Last of Us Remastered, and Horizon Zero Dawn. Since a lot of the big names have this package up for grabs, you’ll have plenty of chances to get your hands on it (just don’t wait too long).
Where to buy a PlayStation 4 Pro: There are two PS4 Pro bundles that we highly recommend looking into right now. GameStop just recently restocked this limited edition Death Stranding PlayStation 4 Pro package, which comes with a copy of the game itself, as well as a specially designed console shell and DualShock 4 controller that are exclusive to this bundle for only $299.99. If that one sells out, you can still grab a Pro in Glacier White at GameStop (also for $299.99). Another one worth considering is this Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4 Pro bundle, which is being offered at multiple retailers for $299.99.
