Gaming Deals in Time for Black Friday


Black Friday will be upon us soon, meaning that now is the time to scoop up the best gaming deals ahead of the holidays. If you’re looking to save big on the newest video games, you’ve come to the right place.

If you haven’t been able to score a next-gen console yet, don’t worry. Sony and Microsoft have promised that restocks of the popular consoles will be sent out over time, so rest assured: if you want one of these systems, you’ll be able to get one soon. In the meantime, you can begin bulking out your gaming collection with some of this week’s best sales.

Nintendo Switch Sales

The Switch’s first-party lineup of games is one of the best slates for any modern console. Games like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are among the best video games ever made. Other great titles, like Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and Super Mario Party can keep the fun coming with excellent multiplayer option.

Right now, all five of those games are on a rare sale over at Best Buy. Right now, you can scoop them up for $45, a $15 discount from their normal $60 MSRP. That’s the best deal yet for these titles, as Nintendo is notoriously tight with sales when it comes to their first-party titles.

Amazon B2G1 Deal

Amazon is running a buy-two-get-one deal on a number of brand-new titles for Black Friday. The games range from recently-released next-gen titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to other hits from the past year including Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Crash Bandicoot 4.

Other highlights include the new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Marvel’s Avengers and NBA 2K20. Needless to say, if you’re looking to quickly bulk out your collection of next-gen games, this is how to do it efficiently.

Persona 5 Royal

One of the best RPGs ever made, Persona 5 was only made better by its enhanced re-release, Royal. If you missed this adventure the first time around and you’re looking to throw in with the Phantom Thieves, then this is your chance. The epic, sprawling tale is on sale now for a surprisingly-low $29 for the Steelbook edition.

That sale price is available through GameStop, so you can scoop this excellent title up and look cool while you’re doing it. And, if anyone knows a thing or two about looking cool, it’s the game’s protagonist, Joker.
