The best Black Friday 2017 games deals on Nintendo, PS4, Xbox, and PC

Thursday, 23 November 2017, 09:12:57 PM. PS4 Pro and Xbox One S deals abound, but sadly only a small few from Nintendo

It’s been more than a year since Sony released its PlayStation 4 Pro, and just one month after the release of Microsoft’s similar (but more powerful) Xbox One X. If you’ve been sitting on the sidelines of this particular mid-generation console race, now might be a good time to jump in.

Not only are there are a bunch of good deals on affordable 4K HDR TVs to take advantage of the visual upgrades, but there’s finally a healthy slate of games optimized for the faster, more powerful hardware.

We’ve rounded up the best deals on standard console hardware and PC parts, games, and accessories so you don’t have to comb through those confusing, anachronistic holiday flier PDF files. With Black Friday starting this Thursday on Thanksgiving and going through Cyber Monday, be sure to double check store hours and whether a certain retailer is offering discounts for in-store purchases, online-only, or both.

The best gaming deals of Black Friday

Microsoft won’t likely discount its new One X console for many months, but Sony and GameStop are offering the first available price drop on the PS4 Pro, from $399.99 to $349.99. It’s a Black Friday deal, so act fast if you’ve been saving up for Sony’s new hardware. If you’re in the market for an Xbox One S, Microsoft is in fact offering its lowest-ever price on that device at $189.

Unfortunately, given Nintendo’s penchant for keeping its prices high, there are not many meaningful deals on either Switch hardware or marquee Switch games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Super Mario: Odyssey. But you can get your hands on the new 2DS Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time special edition for $79.99 if you’re willing to go find one in-store as early as possible.

(Note: Many of the hardware deals are identical across retailers due to blanket discount policies from Microsoft and Sony. We’ve listed each hardware deal under the respective retailer when appropriate. So while choosing Best Buy over Target or GameStop won’t mean saving more money, it does mean you have a higher chance of nabbing the deal.)
