Elden Ring |
$59.99 $35 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
We’ve been stuck at a $49.99 sales price for Elden Ring all year, but Walmart has just come along and smashed through that previous record. You’ll find the 2022 heavyweight available for just $35 right now (opens in new tab) – that’s a full $25 of the final cost. Whether you’ve been holding out for a saving or you’re just getting round to this FromSoftware giant, there’s excellent value up for grabs right now.
Logitech G203 wired gaming mouse |
$39.99 $19.88 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If you’re after a budget pointer, the Logitech G203 is perfectly primed for the picking right now. A $20 discount shaves half the price off this 8K DPI pointer (you really don’t need much more than that), and you’re still getting six programmable buttons, onboard preset storage, and RGB lighting in board. All that comes in at just $19.88 (opens in new tab) in Amazon’s Black Friday gaming deals – a far cry from the $39.99 MSRP. That’s perfect if those three-figure mice don’t quite fit the bill.
MSI GP66 Leopard RTX 3080 gaming laptop |
$2,399 $1,399 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
We certainly weren’t expecting to see RTX 3080 machines start dropping below $1,400 (opens in new tab) in this week’s Black Friday gaming deals, but Walmart’s done just that with this MSI GP66 Leopard. This is the same rig we were celebrating for hitting $1,799 last year, so you’ve got an extra $400 in the bank this time around. Considering the i7-11800H processor, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD this isn’t the latest RTX 3080 configuration around, but it’s certainly one of the (if not the) cheapest.
Samsung 980 Pro 2TB PS5 SSD with heatsink |
$399.99 $189.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This is the cheapest we’ve ever seen the massive 2TB Samsung 980 Pro PS5 SSD. That price has been trickling down from its $399.99 position since January, but has only ever reached $219.99 in the past. That means you’re saving an additional $30 over the previous record – and securing yourself a huge $210 saving with this $189.99 price (opens in new tab). There’s plenty of room to keep all your new games in here, and with the heatsink built in there’s no faffing in installation either.
UK: 1TB |
£180.99 £99.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
PS5 DualSense Controller |
$69.99 $49 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The PS5 DualSense controller is at an all-time record low price at Amazon right now. A $20 discount brings this $69.99 gamepad down to just $49 (opens in new tab) in the retailer’s Black Friday PS5 deals. That’s a stunning result – $10 cheaper than we’ve ever seen it before. Whether you’ve managed to score a console recently or you’re looking to replace some battle-worn buttons, this is a must-see offer. What’s more, we’re seeing a range of color options included in this discount as well.
£59.99 £39.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Stray (PS5) |
$39.99 $29 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Amazon has cut $10 from this physical edition of Stray on PS5. That leaves us with an excellent $29 sales price (opens in new tab) on the $39.99 game – a brand new record low. Perfect for anyone looking to kick back with some fuzzy friends this holiday season, while also keeping their game box collection looking healthy as well. We haven’t seen too many discounts on this already cheaper title, so today’s offer is particularly strong.
£34.99 £29.95 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Xbox Wireless controller |
$59.99 $39 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The Xbox Wireless controller has dipped back down to its lowest ever price at Amazon. That’s a stunning result – and one we certainly didn’t expect after that cost remained stuck at $44.99 in last year’s Black Friday gaming deals. We don’t know how long this $20 discount (opens in new tab) will last then, but we’re also seeing other colorways up for grabs at $39 as well – so things are looking good at the moment. Prices are generally stuck at between $49.99 and $54.99 on these gamepads year-round, so you’re picking up a steal here.
£54.99 £34.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8 Deluxe | 3 months Nintendo Switch Online | $299.99 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
The annual Switch bundle is live at Walmart. This truly is the best Nintendo Switch offer of the year, and it’s the best we see every year. However, these consoles don’t last long on the shelves – if you’re interested in grabbing a free copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Nintendo Switch Online for just $299.99 (opens in new tab) we’d recommend moving fast.
iBuyPower RTX 3070 gaming PC |
$1,449.99 $1,149.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
This iBuyPower RTX 3070 PC was already pretty strong at $1,449.99, but Best Buy’s Black Friday gaming deals have just shunted that price all the way down to $1,149.99 (opens in new tab). That’s a full $300 discount on this powerful rig. You’re packing an i7-12700F processor in here, alongside a 1TB SSD, that Nvidia RTX 3070 GPU, and 16GB RAM.
PS5 | God of War Ragnarok | $559 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
Remarkably, we’re still seeing this PS5 stock sitting around at Walmart. These bundles have been available for all customers (not just Walmart Plus members) since the retailer launched a new drop at the start of the week. That’s a stunning result considering Walmart hasn’t offered any PS5 restocks for some time now. Last time the console was on these shelves it held out for a particularly long time, but we still wouldn’t wait too long to jump on this availability. You’ll find the console, alongside God of War Ragnarok available for $559 (opens in new tab).
Nintendo Switch (Animal Crossing Edition) | $35 Dell gift card | $299.99 at Dell (opens in new tab)
If you’re after a Nintendo Switch saving in the US, we’d recommend heading over to Dell for today’s best offer. The Animal Crossing edition of the standard console hasn’t seen any discounts in the US so far, so this free $35 gift card (opens in new tab) is looking particularly strong. We were previously seeing a $75 gift card available with the OLED model, but that was run from the shelves particularly quickly – we wouldn’t wait too long if this one looks good, then.
Meta Quest 2 | Resident Evil 4 | Beat Saber |
$399.99 $349.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
We’re kicking things off with possibly the best offer on the shelves right now. Not only are you scoring a $50 discount on the Meta Quest 2 (the largest we’ve ever seen), but you’re also picking up two free games here. That’s some excellent value that works to negate the price increase we saw earlier in the year. If you found yourself on the wrong side of that $100 inflation in the summer, this is the best value we’ve seen since then. You’ll find this whole package available for $349.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) right now.
£399.99 £349 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Howdy there, and welcome to this year’s Black Friday gaming deals. There are plenty of offers landing all across PS5, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC this year, and we’re your guides through this whole sales extravaganza. We’re kicking off our live coverage of the holiday sales right now, bringing you all our favorite discounts from across the web. So sit back and relax – we’ve done all the aisle trawling for you.
