It’s just about here – the biggest shopping day of the year, where you can get your hands on a number of crazy bargains for yourself, loved ones and friends.
And you’re going to need your wallet because there are a ton of deals that will be available, including gaming hardware, video games, accessories and more. We can’t list them all here, though you can find a number of retailer deals listed on our site.
What we can point out, however, are some of the best bargains right off the bat, whether you need a new system or some key titles. So take this guide under advisement before you hit the retailer or its website. We’ve separated them into Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo deals, but there’s also a page for suggested stocking stuffers!
Injustice 2- $14
If you’re up for getting one of this year’s most polished fighting games, you can’t go wrong with Injustice 2 – especially considering it’s less than $15. It’s great for PS4 owners as well.
Super Lucky’s Tale- $20
Got a younger gamer in the family that needs an adventure that’s not so rough on the bloodshed? Super Lucky’s Tale is an ideal choice, clocking in for $20 at a number of retailers this Friday. Pick it up and enjoy the retro feels!
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands- $20
Best Buy has an array of awesome games you can score for $20, but don’t sleep on Ghost Recon Wildlands. It’s one of this year’s best multiplayer experiences, especially with the new Ghost War PvP mode. Lock and load!
Xbox One 500GB Battlefield 1 Bundle- $200
If it’s gaming hardware you’re after, Microsoft has a ton of deals on Xbox One S systems. But the best bundle for your money is at Walmart, where you can get the Xbox One 500GB system for $200 with a free digital copy of Battlefield 1. Can’t go wrong there.
Call of Duty: WWII- $45
War may be hell, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be hell on your wallet. Target has the newly released Call of Duty game set to go for 25 percent off its normal price – and packing all sorts of great features, including a horrifying Zombies mode!
Playstation 4 Pro 1TB Console- $350
If you’ve been looking to snag a PlayStation 4 Pro and don’t want to pay the full $350, GameStop has exactly what you need. It’s lowered the price on Sony’s latest hardware down $50, and it’s a deal that will go fast.
Horizon Zero Dawn- $20
Many retailers will be offering up Guerrilla Games’ epic open-world adventure for the mere price of $20. Even without the Frozen Wilds expansion included, it’s one hell of a deal.
Knack 2- $20
Another great markdown that you won’t want to miss is Knack 2, which can be yours for $20. It’s bigger than the first game, and also features co-op support. If you can, track down a copy at your nearby Redbox, as you’ll be able to snag it for just $10. (But without the case, mind you.)
NieR Automata- $25
One of this year’s most surprising games, NieR: Automata is an experience that no action gamer should be without. And the fact you can get it from GameStop for about $25 is icing on the cake. Now we just need the sequel.
Assassin’s Creed Origins- $35
Talk about making a killing. Target has the latest Assassin’s Creed game from Ubisoft up for grabs for a mere $35 – not a bad deal at all. And you get to take part in all sorts of wild missions. In Egypt. Hell, yes.
Pokemon Games- $20 each, or three for $40
Looking to stock up on Pokemon games? Make a stop at GameStop, where you can grab Pokemon Ruby, Pokemon Sapphire and either Pokemon X or Y in one flail swoop.
Lego City Undercover- $20
Also available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for the same price, Lego City Undercover is a wonderful title with an open world to explore, along with tons of missions and humorous fun for all ages.
Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition- $20
Even though the game is a few years old (it came out for Wii U ages ago), Rayman Legends remains one of the freshest 2D platformers. And now you can take it on-the-go with the Switch, and even play along with friends in co-op.
Sonic Forces- $25
Looking to play the latest Sonic the Hedgehog game without spilling all of your rings out of your wallet? Head to Best Buy and you’ll be able to snag the fun 3D adventure Sonic Forces for dirt cheap on the Ninteno Switch!
FIFA 18- $30
Finally, if you’re down for some sports action, Best Buy is also offering the soccer sim FIFA 18 for a fairly good price. What’s more, you can play it online and against others locally. Talk about getting your kicks.
Here are some recommendations for games that won’t put a dent in your wallet.
Forza Horizon 3- $15
While this year’s Forza Motorsport 7 had no trouble taking the checkered flag when it came to racing games, Forza Horizon 3 is no slouch – and for $15, it’s a steal. Make sure you get the Hot Wheels expansion alongside it, too.
Red Dead Redemption- $10
GameStop has this classic Western adventure for a simple ten spot, and that’s more than worth the investment with the hours of gameplay this adventure has. Plus you’ll be completely ready for Red Dead Redemption 2 when it drops next year.
Watch Dogs 2- $15
One of last year’s more entertaining open world games, Watch Dogs 2 is still quite entertaining, as you hack your way around San Francisco, causing mayhem and striking back against the system. It’s a fun party.
Another great deal that you can get for Best Buy is Doom, last year’s amazing shooter, for either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. It’s jam packed with carnage and excitement, whether you go it alone in the campaign or take on other poor souls in multiplayer. Take that!
Titanfall 2- $15
Finally, while we’re recommending great games at a reasonable price, we can’t leave Titanfall 2 behind. It’s one of 2016’s most polished shooters, with tons of robotic action and exciting moments. Plus, the destruction you’ll cause – instant joy.
