Black Friday 2016 is now upon us and that’s great news for gamers. Not only can you snag many a bargain when it comes to the best games, you can also get yourself a shiny new console for a song.
That’s why we’ve put together the best gaming deals around, with links of where to get them.
We’ll also update this feature as more discounts emerge.
Xbox One deals
Microsoft dropped a pre-Black Friday stunner in the form of huge reductions for the original Xbox One – among which was the Xbox Elite bundle with the amazing (and normally hugely expensive) Xbox One Elite controller. It ran out of stock itself, but some other retailers could still have some left (potentially until 2 December 2016). There are also some great deals on Xbox One S consoles around.
There are a fair few Xbox One deals at Argos.co.uk. The UK retailer has also added some incredible games deals to its Black Friday sales pages.
UK high street retailer Game has bargains on pre-owned consoles, plenty of cheeky Xbox One S deals, and a whole stack of dirt cheap games.
Amazon started its Black Friday deals early, offering deals from 14 to 25 November. And it’s really ramped up its efforts for the day itself, although some are Lightning deals, so only last as long as there is stock and only for one day in many instances. Snap them up quickly.
Xbox Store deals
If you’ve already got an Xbox One, Microsoft has a tonne of games available to purchase online through its own Xbox storefront, through your console, the Xbox app on a Windows 10 PC or the Xbox One itself. You also get even bigger discounts if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member.
Here are a few of our faves.
We’re getting a whole raft of PlayStation 4 deals in Black Friday week. These are the deals we’ve found so far.
Amazon also has some great PlayStation deals throughout its Black Friday Lightning Sales promotion.
As well as Xbox One offers, Argos has plenty of PS4 deals too.
You can also get some great games bargains on eBay, with the online retailer having Black friday sales across multiple formats, including PlayStation.
Like with its Xbox One deals, Game has some great offers on PS4s and PlayStation games.
PlayStation Store deals
Sony has listed a range of amazing PS4 offers on its own online store, which you can access through a browser, on the PS4 or even in the iPhone or Android app. Some are discounted more for PlayStation Plus members, but the vast majority are bargains for all.
Here are our favourites.
With the Nintendo Switch coming next year and the Wii U rumoured to be winding down, we are seeing several Nintendo console and games deals during the Black Friday period.
Although Wii U and 3DS deals are harder to come by on Amazon than with the other consoles, it does have one or two.
It could be hard to find great deals on Wii U or 3DS in many places, but Game has a few. Here are the ones we’ve found so far.
Nintendo Store deals
Nintendo itself will more than likely have several console deals on its online store in the coming days and weeks. In the US there are some amazing deals on 3DS handhelds, for example, so we hope they will make it across the pond. Here are the deals we’ve spotted so far.
PC games deals
Not to be left out, PC (and Mac) gamers get their own raft of Black Friday bargains. Here are a few we’ve found.
Steam is having a mega sale with more than 13,000 games discounted. Here’s a select few we’ve chosen to bring you.
