Best Black Friday Game Console Sales
Don't expect to find great offers for the Xbox One X or the Nintendo Switch, but here are other specials worth considering
If you’re looking for a price drop on the year’s hottest game consoles—the newly released Xbox One X, the Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo’s SNES Classic Edition—you’re destined for disappointment on Black Friday.
But if you’re open to other options, there are deals to be had, particularly when it comes to Xbox One S bundles.
Here’s a look at the best Black Friday deals we’ve seen so far:
Microsoft Xbox One
The 500GB console will be widely available from the manufacturer and major retailers for $190 on Black Friday. Kohl’s will sweeten the offer by including a $45 credit—known as Kohl’s Cash—toward a future purchase. At Target, the added incentive is a $25 gift card.
Sony PlayStation 4
This console didn’t receive much in the way of bundled savings. Costco will package it with Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 for $290. That’s a discount of $100.
The PlayStation 4 Slim, which normally retails for $300, will be discounted to $190 at BJ’s Wholesale. Best Buy, Dell, Kohl’s, JCPenny, and Target all plan to offer it for $200. And GameStop will match that price and include a $50 gift card.
The gaming retailer will also offer a rare $50 discount on the $400 PlayStation 4 Pro.
