Even though it's called Black Friday, in some places the day of deals has already begun. Regardless, there are lots of great video game deals all over retail stores, both of the brick and mortar and online variety. Whether you're planning on jumping on the internet, or camping in front of a store, you need to know which store to get in line for, so here's a run down of the best Black Friday deals this year.
This list is far from comprehensive, but these are the deals that caught our eye as worth picking up. if we were in the market for such things, which we are, and also willing to brave the crowds, which we are not. Those online deals look pretty sweet, though.
The biggest online retailer in the universe has a number of great deals on everything from games to consoles and accessories. If you're looking for a quality headset without spending money Amazon has solid deals on them, as well as on several games that are worth picking up for sweet deals.
Tales from the Borderlands - $14.79 (disc version)
Batman: Arkham Knight - $10.73
Turtle Beach Stealth 520 headset - $100.06
ReCore - $19.99
The $249 console deal is pretty standard across the board for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, however. Target sweetens the pot by adding a gift card, which you could then use to pick a sweet game or two.
Super Mario Maker - $35
Tom Clancy's The Division - $29.99 (PS4)
Xbox One S - $249.99 plus a $40 Target gift card
Fallout 4 - $15 (PS4)
If you don't need the disc version of Tales From the Borderlands there's really no good reason not to pick up the digital season pass from the PlayStation Store for that price. The only good reason would be if you didn't own one. I hear they're on sale.
Tales from the Borderlands Season Pass - $1.49
Star Wars: Battlefront - $7.49
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - Game of the Year Edition - $7.99
Hitman: The Complete First Season - $29.99
There's really no point in going for the PlayStation 4 Pro unless you have a 4K TV. Best Buy has that bundle covered for a pretty remarkable price. They've also got good deals and enough game content to keep you busy until Easter.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection - $15
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Definitive Experience - $25
Destiny: The Collection - $30
PlayStation 4 Pro & Toshiba 55-inch LED 4K UHD TV - $750
Titanfall 2 is one of the best-reviewed games in recent months. If you don't know why Walmart is removing all excuses to finding out. Also, $25 is such a good price on Batman: Return to Arkham that it becomes worth it to pick that one up even if you've already played the hell out of both games.
BioShock Collection - $35
Titanfall 2 - $27
Batman: Return to Arkham - $25
PS4 w/ The Last of Us: Remastered or Ratchet & Clank - $249 plus $30 Walmart gift card
