Gaming Black Friday

Chances are, you have a gamer to shop for this holiday season. And with just a little research, you can find plenty of gaming deals, no matter what platform your giftee prefers. To wit, we've dug up the best Black Friday gaming ads thus far. Read on to win Black Friday!

The Only Nintendo Switch Discount Comes with a Catch

A ton of ads are out now, so we have a pretty good idea of what we can expect next week. But one of the best deals we've seen so far is currently live — and it comes with a catch. Shoppers with military affiliation (or military connections) can pick up the first discount ever on the Nintendo Switch. It's available in both the Red and Blue and Gray designs. Use coupon code "BNCEBACK21" to cut $50 off (or $60 off if you use the STAR card), which brings the price to $249 at most. The deal ends November 21.

  • NEW! PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB Console for $349.99 at GameStop
    This deal beats our predictions, since we didn't expect the Pro to go on sale at all. It's very close to last Black Friday's price of $339.99, and it's currently the only Black Friday ad we've seen for the Pro this year.

  • NEW! Oculus Rift + Touch Virtual Reality Headset Bundle for PC for $349 at Best Buy
    We nailed the predictions on this one, which means you'll save $250 by picking this system up during Black Friday.

    Of note, Newegg offers it for the same price.

  • NEW! Xbox 360 Pre-Owned Console for free after rebate at GameStop
    Sure, it's an older console, but we never expected it be free even with a rebate. GameStop's rebate last Black Friday dropped the price $30, so this is significantly better. As one editor pointed out, "Buy it and sell it back for $15 and you have a PROFIT." One thing to note is that these are almost certainly the models that experienced the RRoD (red ring of death) issue. Also, you're limited to two.

  • Microsoft Xbox One S 500GB Console with Free Game for $189 at Microsoft
    Many retailers are offering the Xbox One S 500GB console at this price, but it doesn't come with any extras. This deal includes a free game (choose from 5 different titles), and a 1-month Xbox Game Pass to boot. The goodies make this bundle very appealing compared to the barebones offers from other retailers.

    Of note, Kohl's offers the standalone console bundled with $45 Kohl's Cash. Target also has the console for the same price, only it's bundled with a $25 Target gift card.

  • Forza 7 for Xbox One for $39.99 at Microsoft
    We've only seen this game as part of a buy 2, get 1 free offer; otherwise, it's been full price since its October release. Not only is this deal the first real discount, but it marks a $20 drop from the normal list price — which is nothing to scoff at.

  • Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Explorer's Edition for Nintendo Switch for $49 at Walmart
    Nintendo discounts are really rare, so this deal is already surprising. Additionally, this edition won't be released until Thanksgiving Day (November 23), so for it to be receiving an immediate discount of $10 is beyond awesome.

  • PlayStation 4 1TB Console for $189.99 at BJ's Wholesale Club
    The best price we've seen for this console (plus an extra controller) is $300. Even though this doesn't come with any games, it's still the best outright price for the slim console we've seen.

    If you're not a member at BJ's Wholesale Club (or just prefer to shop elsewhere), Kohl's has this console bundled with $60 Kohl's Cash for $199.99. Alternatively, GameStop has it bundled with a $50 gift card for the same price as well. If you aren't interested in the Kohl's Cash, it can also be found for $199 at Sam's Club, Walmart, and Jet.com. (It's also available for $1 more at Best Buy, Newegg, and Target.)

  • Assassin's Creed: Origins for Xbox One for $34.99 at Best Buy
    This game was just released at the end of October, and so far the lowest we've seen it drop to is $47.99. To see it fall even further for Black Friday makes this title a great deal.

  • PlayStation VR Headset for PS4 for $199.99 at Target
    This offer doesn't really match or beat our predictions because we focused on bundles. However, it's still the lowest price outright we've seen for the headset alone by about $25. Note: You'll still need the camera to use PS VR; this is merely an extra headset for your setup.
