Hello everyone! It’s Elie Gould here, TRG’s features writer and I’ll be taking over the live blog, lining up the best and wackiest deals right now.
Speaking of wacky, the Xbox Series S has got something interesting up its sleeve this Black Friday. While we’ve seen some great deals in the US with it on offer for $249.99 (opens in new tab) at Best Buy. UK buyers have something of a special offer on hand.
Over at GAME, the console is currently on offer for £199.99 (opens in new tab) in a bundle, along with a £10 GAME gift card and… an England bucket hat, just in time for the World Cup. I don’t know about you, but for me, a bucket hat is an essential piece of gaming gear.
Sonic Frontiers hasn’t even been out a month, but it’s already seeing some massive discounts over at Amazon. In the US, fans can grab the PS5 version of the game for just $35 (opens in new tab), a huge 42% saving. Meanwhile, UK buyers can still snap up the game on Xbox Series X|S for £29.99 (opens in new tab)and on Nintendo Switch for £32.95 (opens in new tab).
Two of Turtle Beach’s best gaming headsets are still on sale, in the UK, over at Amazon. The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 is down to just £64.99 (opens in new tab) from its usual retail price of £89.99.
Meanwhile, the higher-end Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 Max headset is down to just £119.99 (opens in new tab), whereas it usually costs a hefty £179.99. If you’ve been looking for a new headset for PS5 or Xbox Series X|S, definitely consider these excellent headsets which boast fantastic sound quality and huge battery life.
In the US and own a PS5? Right now, you can pick up a copy of Horizon Forbidden West at Amazon for just $35 (opens in new tab), a massive half-price saving. As one of the year’s best PS5 games, it comes highly recommended from us.
Xbox Wireless Controllers for Xbox Series X|S have had their stocks topped up over at Amazon US. Right now, you can grab some of these pads cheaper than ever. Color variants on sale include the standard Robot White (opens in new tab) and Carbon Black (opens in new tab) color schemes.
Pulse Red (opens in new tab)Shock Blue (opens in new tab)Lunar Shift (opens in new tab) and more are also on sale. Take a look below to see all the offers currently in stock.
Xbox Series S is still down to its lowest price over at Amazon UK. Usually £249, the retailer’s slashed its price by £60, bringing the grand total to just £189 (opens in new tab). This is a fantastic deal if you’re still looking to jump into the current generation of consoles, albeit on a budget.
Another Nintendo Switch deal here, this time on the Switch OLED. Those in the UK can pick up a Nintendo Switch OLED for a record-low price of £269.99 (opens in new tab) right now at Smyths – that’s not far off the standard Switch’s RRP of £259.
While this deal is only for the console itself, you can use that £40 savings to pick yourself up one of the great Switch game deals we shared earlier today. Wow!
Unlike last year, we’re seeing a decent number of PS5 consoles and bundles available in the run-up to Black Friday (more so in the US than the UK). While these consoles and bundles aren’t seeing a discount, they’re definitely worth considering if you’re on the hunt for a PlayStation 5 this year.
It’s also worth keeping an eye on our PS5 restock tracker, which will let you know when and where you can pick up Sony’s latest hardware.
In the UK? A range of Nintendo Switch microSD cards are still heavily discounted at Amazon. The 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB variants are all on offer, perfect for bolstering the tiny amount of storage the Nintendo Switch OLED ships with.
The deals are as follows:
Looking for a PS5 racing wheel setup for games like Gran Turismo 7? The Logitech G29 racing wheel setup is still on sale in both the US and UK. It’s one of the best racing wheels you can buy, and is currently enjoying a massive discount at Amazon.
The Logitech G29’s down to $199 (opens in new tab) / £199 (opens in new tab) at Amazon right now, one of the lowest prices it’s ever dropped to. But given it’s such a good price, we expect stock to sell through fast. If you’ve been after a professional racing wheel setup, then, it’s best to act soon.
Boy, do we have an Oculus Quest 2 deal for you. If you’ve been planning on picking up one of the best VR headsets for yourself, then you’re in luck. Right now, US buyers can pick up a fantastic bundle for just $349 (opens in new tab) at Amazon. Meanwhile, across the pond, UK shoppers can grab the same bundle for £349 (opens in new tab).
This Oculus Quest 2 bundle packs in the 128GB headset, controllers, as well as Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR, two of the best VR games out there. Be sure to check out this deal before it’s gone!
If you’ve not picked up Elden Ring yet then now is the perfect opportunity. In the UK, Amazon has discounted the PS5 version to only £25 (opens in new tab). The only catch is that it could take a month or two to arrive, with Amazon stating the fastest delivery would be between December 3 and January 11.
This Nintendo Switch Black Friday deal might be the best we’ve seen all year. Right now you can pick up a Nintendo Switch bundle that includes the console, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three-month subscription to Nintendo Switch Online for $299 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) or £259 at the My Nintendo Store (opens in new tab) in the UK.
If you’ve been looking for a great Nintendo Switch bundle deal this Black Friday then you can’t go wrong with this offer. If you’re on the hunt for the OLED, then keep an eye on our Black Friday Nintendo Switch OLED deals for the biggest discounts right now.
If you’ve been looking for sizeable discounts on the best Nintendo Switch games, then look no further. Many top titles are currently under the $40/£40 mark right now at Amazon, making it the perfect time to expand your Switch library.
The newly released Sonic Frontiers has seen a huge discount in the UK, with a 40% discount meaning you can pick up Sonic’s latest adventure for just over £30 (opens in new tab)while Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has had a 41% discount (opens in new tab) in the US. Other games on offer include Nintendo Switch Sports, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Splatoon 3.
If you’ve got more than one DualSense controllerthen you should seriously consider picking up a PS5 DualSense Charging Station this Black Friday.
Easily one of the best PS5 accessories you can buy, the DualSense Charging Station allows you to charge two gamepads at the same time, saving you from swapping out controllers constantly – and right now it’s at its lowest price to date.
Right now, this essential accessory is just right $22.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) in the US and £16.99 at Amazon UK (opens in new tab).
The best gaming chairs are often expensive. I’ve been looking at picking one up myself this Black Friday, in hope of a decent discount, because I can’t justify to myself spending a huge amount of cash right now. Thankfully, our Hardware Editor Aleksha McLoughlin has scoured the web to put together a list of the best gaming chairs under $250 for Black Friday.
While there’s currently not a huge selection, you can pick up the Respawn 110 Fabric for $212.49 (opens in new tab)the Razer Enki X for $229.99 (opens in new tab)or the AutoFull Ergonomic Gamer for $249.99 (opens in new tab).
We expect a wider variety of gaming chairs to be discounted over Black Friday weekend, with some of these prices likely to fall even further.
It can be a real pain having to delete games off of yours Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, in order to make space for new ones. The Seagate Xbox Storage Expansion Card makes that less of a problem, letting you expand your Xbox storage without hassle – simply slide it into the back of your console.
The downside is that this handy card is pretty expensive. That’s why I’m relieved to see some discounts on the 1TB version in the run-up to Black Friday. Right now there’s £35 off the Seagate Xbox Expansion Card (opens in new tab) at Amazon in the UK, bringing the price down to £184.99. In the US, there’s $20 off the Expansion Card (opens in new tab)making it just under $200.
That’s still pretty pricey, but I’m hoping we see the price drop further towards the end of this week – especially as we’ve seen it reach £164.99/$189.99 previously. I’ve personally got one of these cards and find the extra 1TB storage it adds to the Xbox Series X’s 1TB means that I rarely have to delete games off my console (unless I go on an Xbox Game Pass downloading spree).
Hi folks! It’s Vic Hood, TRG’s Associate Editor. I’ll be bringing you the best Black Friday gaming deals for the next few hours before handing over to my esteemed colleague Rhys Wood. So let’s get cracking.
