all the top Switch, PS4 and Xbox One offers • Eurogamer.net
You want all the best deals you can get, over the Black Friday period, but you’re a busy person. You don’t have time to scour the web for the best prices on all manner of video game paraphernalia. Well, that’s where we come in!
To truly mark the most important day in the shopping calendar, we’ve brought all the best PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch discounts into one place. We know you’re eager to both spend money and save money, which is why we wanted to make your life as easy as possible. I know you’re hungry for deals, so without any further ado, here are all the top Black Friday deals that are out there.
If you want to check out a more exhaustive list of PS4 products that are on sale, make sure you have a look at the PlayStation 4 Black Friday deals hub. While we’ve ticked all the important boxes here, you may find something you like over there.
If you want to grab a top-tier PlayStation 4, Amazon has two pretty good deals on the Call of Duty and FIFA 20 bundles. If you’re not interested in either of those, there are thankfully a number of other options out there like the cracking PS4 Pro bundle that comes with Red Dead 2, GTA V and this year’s Modern Warfare.
There are some great PS4 Slim bundles available in the UK, but you US folk have the best PS4 Slim Black Friday deal: for $199.99 you can grab yourself a 1TB console, God of War, The Last of Us Remastered and Horizon Zero Dawn.
If you’ve just picked up a console you’ll want to grab a subscription to PlayStation Plus, too. Not only does a PS Plus membership allow you to play games online with others, but you also get a couple of games at no additional cost each month. The best price we’ve seen for 12 months of PlayStation Plus is 31.85 over on ShopTo. If they sell out, there’s always Amazon.
There are a few third-party controllers out there, which we’ll list below, but the best price we’ve found on an official DualShock, in the UK, is at Argos. In America, you can grab a PS4 controller for just under $40 from Walmart.
PlayStation VR and Storage
We haven’t been flooded with PSVR deals this year, but we have found a few that you may like. And if you’re looking to bulk up your PS4’s storage, have a look at these great deals on hard drives.
You need things to play on your console, and Black Friday brings some cracking savings on some smashing video games. Here’s a list of the absolute best deals we’ve found.
We believe you’ll find pretty much everything you could want from an Xbox One-related deal below, but if you’re looking for even more Microsoft bits and bobs, have a gander at the Xbox One Black Friday deals hub.
Xbox One X
There are huge savings on the Xbox One X today; some retailers are offering over 100 off the most powerful console on the market. If you want to spend as little as possible, take a look at the Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, and Star Wars bundles.
Xbox One S and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition
If those Xbox One X prices are a little too hot for you, check out these Xbox One S and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition bundles. At 179.99, a 1TB Xbox One S with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Rage 2 is a steal. If you’ve got a good enough internet connection, you might want to look at the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition bundles. Whichever S variant you go for, know that you’re getting it at a great price.
Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass
Xbox Live Gold is a no-brainer these days: you get to play online multiplayer with friends, and you get a couple of extra games every month, too. You’ll be glad to hear, then, that ShopTo is currently offering 12 months of Xbox Live Gold for 37.85, which is 24 per cent off the regular price.
Microsoft currently has an amazing deal on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: three months for a measly 1. We would recommend the subscription service at its regular price, but when it’s only a quid there’s no way you can turn it down.
Amazon’s knocked the price on Xbox One controllers, so grab them while they’re hot (and in multiple colours).
Headsets and storage
Make sure, while playing your Xbox One, that you have quality sound with a top pair of headphones. The HyperX Cloud Stinger Xbox One Headset is currently a really good price. Like the PlayStation 4, the best way to upgrade your storage space is via the hard drives mentioned above, so be sure to take a look at those.
Black Friday doesn’t just cater to new customers; if you’ve already got an Xbox One, you’ll be wanting some games to play on it. Luckily for you, we’ve had a look at what kind of deals are out there on Xbox games and we’ve come back with what we believe are the very best prices.
Nintendo’s discounts haven’t been quite as major as Microsoft or Sony’s, but there’s certainly been enough value out there for those looking for it. The list below will cover most of your needs, but if you want more there’s always our Switch Black Friday deals hub.
If you’re looking to pick up one of Nintendo’s hybrid handhelds this Black Friday, you’ll be able to grab a bundle that will save you a little bit of cash.
Granted, it’s not a ludicrous saving, but you can get a Nintendo Switch Lite from Amazon for 179, which is twenty less than the regular price. If you’re looking for a bundle, Very is flogging a Switch Lite that comes with Pokmon Sword and Minecraft for only 209.99.
Nintendo Switch Online
Nintendo Switch Online is a pretty decent service, but it’s quite difficult to find discounted memberships. Like a lot of Nintendo products, it holds its value even around Black Friday. However, we did spot ShopTo is selling 12 months of the service for 14.85. Get on it.
Most of us need to beef up our Switch consoles with extra storage; thankfully, there are some wonderful discounts on micro SD cards on Amazon at the minute. Have a look, and grab something.
While you’re not going to find terrific discounts on many of the newer Switch games, you will still come across a deal or two if you look for them. We did. Here they are.
Phew! That just about covers everything. Hopefully you’ve been able to find exactly what you were after on this page. We’ll continue to keep it updated with all the latest offers over the next few days, as Black Friday becomes Cyber Monday.
