Best Gaming Deals for Black Friday 2017

Black Friday is almost here, and it can be hard to keep up with all the deals. From Sony and Microsoft to Nintendo and more, here are the best Black Friday Deals so far this year.

It's that time of year, folks, the time when Black Friday consumes the lives of every department store employee and post-Turkey Day consumer to the extent that they forget they have families. Coincidentally, this is also the time of year that we turn a blind eye to all of that because, "Ah, holidays! Must buy gifts for myself. Look at all these great deals!"

So in the spirit of the season, here are some of the best Black Friday deals coming our way this year.

Sony and PlayStation Store Black Friday Deals

These deals, running from November 19 November 27, are related to Sony products across all retailers, from Best Buy to Amazon and beyond. 

The 1TB standard slim PlayStation 4 will be on sale for $199.99 this year, alongside Dual Shock 4 controllers for $40 (that's compared to their normal $60 price tag).

For anyone interested in virtual reality gaming on the PlayStation 4, the PSVR Gran Turismo Sport Bundle will cost $299, while the PSVR Skyrim VR Bundle will retail for $350.

PSN will also have a special Black Friday sale. PlayStation Plus subscribers will get special, early access to these deals on November 17; everyone else will have access to them on November 21. The sale will end on November 28.

Walmart

 

Walmart, like all of the other largest retailers, has extensive Black Friday sales running from Thanksgiving Thursday and on into the coming days. Walmart in particular will open their doors at 6pm on 11/23.

Walmart's website says you can buy online and pickup in store, but I am not exactly sure how this system works, so you will definitely want to look more into it prior to Black Friday.

  • Like Best Buy, PS4 and Xbox One Controllers will be on sale for $40
  • Switch Pro Controller will also be on sale for $17; $3 cheaper than Best Buy
  • Turtle Beach Recon 50P Gaming Headset Available for $25 
  • Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Special Edition (includes 100 page mini guide and 2 sided map) is on sale for $50 compared to $60 everywhere else
  • While Call of Duty World War 2 is $43 ($3 more expensive than most places) they also have a Call of Duty World War 2 + Infinite Warfare Special Edition Bundle, which is exclusive to Walmart, for $60

It should be noted, that the way that Walmart's advert and website are laid out, that some of the available games are not exactly clear.
