Time to empty your wallets: Here are the best Black Friday Deals.

At least some of them.

I did some digging to find some of the best Black Friday deals for games and gaming accessories online. This list will cover the deals offered by Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft on their respective platforms. If I mentioned every single retailer we’d be here all day, and I assume you know already that Walmart, BestBuy, Target, etc. are all having sales too. Please keep in mind all prices shown are in USD because I’m a filthy American, and let’s start this list.

First up is PC gaming, and since Steam is the most widely used service I’ll mostly be highlighting sales from them, but I will comment on other ones below:

Games
Code Vein
$41.99 – (30% off)
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep
$20.99 – (40% off)
Warhammer: Vermintide 2
$7.49 – (75% off)

And as an honorable mention for hardware:
Steam Controllers
$4.99 – (90% off)

This is just a few of the deals that stuck out to me, I recommend going through their whole catalogue to see if something catches your eye. Off this list I would recommend getting the Steam controller for that nice $5 price, as well as RUST, DOOM and Code Vein.

Aside from Steam though, be sure to check through the Epic Games Store Black Friday Sale running from November 22nd to December 2nd, the Weekly and Paradox Sale at gog.com, Origin’s Black Friday sale, and Humble Bundle Fall Sale.

Next up is Playstation. There are some good deals on PS4 Pro’s running right now, as well as deals for Playstation VR. They’re also doing a full week of Black Friday sales running from November 24th through December 2nd. Here’s a list of some notable discounts from Playstation:

Hardware
PS4 Pro with 1TB Hard Drive
$299.99 – (25% off)
Original PS4 Bundle 1TB Hard Drive w/ God of War 4, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and The Last of Us Remastered

Games

MediEvil
$19.99 – (33% off)
Days Gone
$19.99 – (33% off)
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
$9.99 – (50% off)

These are the best exclusive deals for Playstation, but there will be plenty of 3rd party games for sale on the PS4 marketplace, so be sure to log in and browse what else they may have. My personal recommendation would be the Bloodborne and Days Gone deals.

Next is Nintendo’s Cyber Deals sale, and discounts on the Switch and Switch Lite. This year has the lowest barrier of entry for a Nintendo console in a while, and has had some pretty notable game releases and DLC releases for existing games recently. There was also the release of the Switch Lite, with an easy price point of $199.99 at launch. So here’s some good deals I managed to find:

Hardware
Nintendo Switch (V1) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle
$299.99 – (Available starting 11/28 at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Gamestop and Target)
Nintendo Switch + $25 Gift Coupon
$299.99 – (Available at Gamestop
Nintendo JoyCons Red/Blue
$59.99 – (25% off, Amazon)

Games
Divinity: Original Sin 2
$39.99 – (20% off)
Cuphead
$14.99 – (25% off)
TES V: Skyrim
$29.99 – (30% off)
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
$34.99 – (30% off)
DOOM
$29.99 – (50% off)
Celeste
$9.99 – (50% off)
Diablo III: Eternal Collection
$39.99 – (30% off)
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
$27.99 – (30% off)
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen
$19.99 – (33% off)
Sonic Mania
$9.99 – (50% off)

And that’s some of the best deals from Nintendo I could find. Honestly there’s not many great deals in hardware from what I’ve seen but you could always just get a Switch Lite, I did and it works great for me. As for games I will always, always, ALWAYS shill for Dragon’s Dogma so I highly recommend that game. I also recommend picking up Celeste for it’s solid platforming, and Divinity: Original Sin 2 if you want a punishing RPG to dump hours of your life into. Moving on now.

Last up is Xbox. Now aside from Steam, I would say that Microsoft has provided the best value in their Black Friday sales for this year. With inclusion of the Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One and PC, you’re already getting access to a whole library of games. But as with Playstation, lets look at the hardware deals and singular game deals offered as well:

Hardware
Xbox One S All-Digital Edition Bundle
$149.00 – (40% off)
Xbox One S Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Bundle
$199.00 – (33% off)
Xbox One X 1TB Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Bundle
$349.00 – (30% off)
Xbox One X 1TB Forza Horizon 4 LEGO Champions Bundle
$349.00 – (30% off)
Xbox One X 1TB Gears 5 Limited Edition Bundle

Service
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
+$1.00 for first 3 months, $44.99 quarterly upon discount end.
+Xbox Live Gold ($9.99/MO. value)
+1 month of EA Access
+3 months of Discord Nitro
+6 months of Spotify Premium
+Exclusive prices on game deals

Like I said, Xbox has got a really good amount of value for the price in its sales. The hardware bundles are a pretty good price, the games are about what you’d expect, but the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate discount is really good given how much comes with it. I’d definitely recommend getting the Game Pass, and if you don’t want the Ultimate one the standard PC one starts at $4.99 a month and the Xbox One version is $9.99 a month.

Break out that dough and get spending.

And that’s gonna cover my list of sales for this Black Friday. Is there anything that caught your eye on this list? Do you feel an overwhelming sense of dread due to how much money you know you’re about to blow on games? Are you going to buy Dragon’s Dogma like I asked you? Are you? Are you? Jokes aside, I hope I was able to help you out or give you some ideas on games/hardware to buy. From myself and everyone at EscapeZero I hope you have a great day, a happy Thanksgiving, and a wonderful holiday weekend.
