PlayStation 4 Pro (1TB) with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Game of the Year Edition | $289
Google Shopping will have the PS4 Pro bundled with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Game of the Year Edition, which includes all DLC, for just $289 during Black Friday.
PS4 Pro (1TB) Glacier White with $25 gift coupon | $300
A GameStop-exclusive Black Friday deal, the gorgeous Glacier White PS4 Pro will be discounted to $300. Plus, you’ll get a $25 gift coupon to spend at GameStop.
PS4 Pro (1TB) | $300
Assuming the other PS4 Pro deals sell out, you can also get a PS4 Pro on its own for $300 during Black Friday, which is still a nice price.
PlayStation VR Mega Pack bundle with five games | $200
PlayStation VR bundle with Astro Bot and Moss | $200
If the Mega Pack sells out quickly, this PSVR bundle with Moss and Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is another popular choice that’ll be on sale for Black Friday.
DualShock 4 Wireless Controller | $39 each
PlayStation Plus 12-month membership | $45
Sony’s official offer on PS Plus this Black Friday is $45 for a 12-month subscription. This is a solid deal, but we’ll be looking to see if it drops any lower at places like Ebay or Newegg closer to Black Friday. Keep in mind that PS Plus subscriptions can be stacked, so even if you still have some time left on your current membership, you can renew early and save yourself some money in the longterm.
Nintendo Switch Lite | $175
It’s rare to see Nintendo’s new, handheld-only Switch discounted as it only released a few months ago, but Google Shopping (formerly known as Google Express) will have it on sale for $175 during Black Friday, down $25 from its $200 list price. It’s unclear whether more colors will be available than just gray. We’ll include the link here when available.
Nintendo Switch Lite with $25 gift coupon | $200
GameStop will have its own Nintendo Switch Lite promotion. Though the Switch Lite will still be sold for its regular price of $200, GameStop is throwing in a $25 gift coupon. This deal will only be available Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1, but it applies to the yellow, gray, and turquoise models.
Nintendo Switch bundle with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and $25 gift coupon | $300
Nintendo’s holiday Switch bundle is, disappointingly, a repeat of last year’s. The launch model Switch–that’s the one without improved battery life–will come with a free digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $300. At GameStop, you can also get a $25 gift coupon with your purchase, but please note that bonus is available only on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.
If you’re a fan of Mario Kart, which normally goes for around $50, and manage to snag GameStop’s offer, this bundle is still pretty decent, especially if you plan to play docked more than handheld. You’ll find the same bundle at Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy, the latter of which is also throwing in a free screen protector.
Nintendo Switch with Crash Team Racing, Switch Online Family Membership | $305
Google Shopping has swooped in with another solid Nintendo Switch bundle option for Black Friday. While the start time hasn’t been revealed, you’ll be able to snag this Nintendo Switch (the new model with improved battery life) and get Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled ($40 value) along with a 12-month Switch Online Family Membership ($35 value), all for $305.
Nintendo Switch bundle with carrying case, charging dock, and $90 Kohl’s Cash | $320
If you’d rather own some handy accessories, this Switch bundle includes the newer, improved console, a carrying case ($20 value), and the popular PowerA Joy-Con Charging Dock ($25 value) for $320. On top of that, you’ll get $90 in Kohl’s Cash with your purchase, so if you plan on doing any other holiday shopping at Kohl’s, you may want to cash in on this deal.
Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons (Gray or Neon Red/Blue) | $53.60
Poke Ball Plus | $20
Nintendo Switch Online 12-month individual subscription | $15
Nintendo’s online subscription is cheaper than both PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold, but it rarely sees discounts. Target will be offering 12-month Switch Online individual memberships for $15 (rather than $20) during Black Friday. Besides online play, Switch Online gets you access to a huge library of SNES and NES classics.
Xbox One X bundle with Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Deluxe Edition + 3 months of Xbox Live Gold | $350
One of the most powerful consoles on the market is bundled with one of this fall’s biggest game releases in this excellent Black Friday deal. Available at multiple retailers, this Xbox One X bundle includes Star War: Jedi Fallen Order Deluxe Edition along with three months of Xbox Live Gold for just $350. Considering Xbox One X bundles still regularly go for $500, you can’t beat this deal.
Xbox One S bundle with Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order and $40 Target gift card | $200
Xbox One X bundle with Gears 5 and $40 Target gift card | $350
Another great Xbox One X bundle is available at Target for Black Friday this year. The console is bundled with Gears 5 and a $40 Target gift card for $350. Please note Gears 5 is also available for free with Xbox Game Pass. You’ll also find the same bundle discounted at Walmart.
Xbox One S All-Digital Edition Bundle | $149
If buying physical discs isn’t your thing, you might be interested in the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition bundle, which comes with Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and bonus content for Fortnite (2,000 V-Bucks and the Legendary Rogue Spider Knight outfit). The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition wasn’t well-received when it first launched at $250, but for a full $100 less, the price may finally be right. You can find it for $149 at Walmart right now, as well as Best Buy.
Select Xbox One controllers | $39
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: Get 3 months for $1 (new subscribers)
Microsoft is offering a nice discount on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate this holiday season: For a limited time, you can get your first three months of the service–which combines Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for both PC and console–for just $1. Considering three months would normally cost you $45, this introductory offer is worth grabbing if you’re curious about Game Pass–just remember to cancel before the three months are up if you don’t want to continue with your membership.
HyperX Cloud II gaming headset | $70
Works with PS4, Xbox One, and PC
The Cloud II is HyperX’s most popular gaming headset, and for good reason. It’s got great comfort, excellent build quality, and good speakers. Amazon has it for $70 for Black Friday.
Also available at: Walmart
HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset | $80
Works with PS4, Xbox One, and PC
The Cloud Alpha is HyperX’s follow-up to the Cloud II. Both are excellent gaming headsets, but the Cloud Alpha edges out its predecessor with better audio drivers, making for improved sound overall. Amazon has it for $80 during Black Friday.
Also available at: Walmart
Oculus Quest 64 GB or 128 GB + Vader Immortal bundle | $400 or $500
The Oculus Quest is a completely standalone VR headset that features inside-out tracking–you don’t need any sensors, the headset does it all for you. All you need to do is put it on and get going with its library of VR games and experiences. However, if you want to connect to a PC, you can do that with the recently introduced Oculus Link feature–just connect it via USB 3.0 and you’re off to the races. That means if you want to play Half-Life: Alyx, then you’re good to go with the Quest.
From now until January 31, Oculus is giving away all three episodes of the Star Wars series, Vader Immortal, with every purchase of the Quest. All you have to do is activate your headset within 30 days of your purchase.
Oculus Rift S | $350
The Oculus Rift S is a PC-powered headset with inside-out tracking. You don’t need to set up any sensors to start using VR, but you will need to keep it plugged into a PC at all times. Despite it not being a Valve headset, Oculus Rift S owners will be able to play Half-Life: Alyx with their headset. Amazon has the Rift S for $350 during Black Friday.
HTC Vive Pro Starter Kit | $800
If you’re looking for high-end VR, then the HTC Vive Pro is a good option. And if you want to play Half-Life: Alyx, this headset is a great way to experience it with–just make sure you have enough room if you want to take full advantage of the room-scale VR. GameStop has the entire package for $800 during Black Friday.
HTC Vive Cosmos | $600
The Cosmos is HTC’s attempt at a VR headset with inside-out tracking. Like the Rift S, it needs to be powered by a PC. And of course, this headset is ready to go for Half-Life: Alyx. GameStop has it for $600 during Black Friday.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare | $38
The new Call of Duty game just launched in late October, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available for $38 at Walmart and GameStop. The multiplayer, for the most part, is top-notch, with the best gunplay in series history, and the campaign at least makes an effort to explore the real horrors of war.
Control | $25
Control is one of the most mind-bending games of 2019 with its fast-paced action and reality-breaking world. Target’s offering Control for $25 from November 28-30, which is the lowest price we’ve seen it at so far.
Borderlands 3 | $28
An engaging conclusion to the Borderlands story, the co-op-focused loot shooter earned an 8/10 in GameSpot’s Borderlands 3 review. The new characters shake things up, the colorful cartoon environments encourage teamwork, and the dizzying number of guns makes for a constantly evolving experience. Borderlands 3 is on sale now for $28 during Best Buy’s Black Friday sale.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition | $45

And for those who still haven’t played it, you can pick up the Complete Edition for PS4 and Xbox One for only $20 at Best Buy during the Black Friday weekend.
The Division 2 | $12

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild | $30

Splatoon 2 | $30
Splatoon 2 is one of the Nintendo Switch’s best multiplayer games, letting you run around as a half-squid, half-kid with the mission of painting your enemies until they pop. You can pick up Splatoon 2 for $30 during Black Friday, starting at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET today.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Game of the Year Edition | $15

Kingdom Hearts 3 is the game fans have waited a long time for, and according to GameSpot’s Kingdom Hearts 3 review, it was worth the wait.
