Black Friday deals on video games and console are live, but things are moving fast. PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch bundles, games, consoles and accessories are selling out quickly. If you’re after a discounted console, you’ll want to act quickly. The action is happening at stores including Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and Target, and we expect more great deals to come later in the day. Keep checking back to see what else goes on sale.
A number of Nintendo Switch deals have come and gone. Earlier, we found a solid discount on the Nintendo Switch V2 with Spyro Reignited Trilogy at Walmart for $299 — but it sold out quickly, for example. In the meantime, we’ve found a deal at Amazon that’ll net you a $25 Amazon credit when you get a Switch V2 for $299.
Otherwise, a word to the wise: Both the PlayStation 5 and next Xbox are scheduled for a late 2020 debut, and they’ll both play games from their respective predecessors. That said, they are at least a year away, so a PS4 or Xbox One still makes a great gift for this holiday season.
We’ve organized the bundles and discounts below by console, with those available now toward the top and those coming soon down below. Have a look.
Black Friday PS4 deals AVAILABLE NOW
The current flagship Sony PS4 Pro will be on sale for $300 at multiple online retailers and physical locations including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Gamestop and Amazon. With games and movies displayed in full 4K resolution, this is the best option if you have the budget for it. And this bundle comes with a free copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, usually worth $30. Read the PlayStation 4 Pro review.
This is the best we’ve seen this season. Last year, you got the same console plus Spider-Man at this price, so this is a pretty big ramp-up.
- God of War
- Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition
- The Last of Us Remastered
That pulls together three of the best PS4 exclusives — albeit ones that are not for younger kids.

Black Friday Xbox deals AVAILABLE NOW
Sure, you can get an Xbox One S for about $200 less than the Xbox One X, but if you do that you’re sacrificing native 4K gaming, and these days, why would you want to do that? For Black Friday, Best Buy is bundling the Xbox One X with the deluxe edition of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order for $350. If you’re a Star Wars fan, this is the bundle to get — everyone, it seems, is hotly anticipating Jedi Fallen Order, and the deluxe edition adds bonus skins for the BD-1 and Stinger Mantis as well as a digital art book and 90 minutes of behind the scenes footage from the making of the game. You can whet your appetite by reading CNET’s Sean Keane’s extensive look at the game. Oh, and the bundle also includes three months of Xbox Live Gold.

The Xbox One S may not have all the horsepower of an Xbox One X, but given the price difference between the consoles, it might be a worth compromise (especially if your TV isn’t equipped to handle HDR anyway, for example). We love this deal because it lands you Jedi Fallen Order and a new Xbox for almost half the cost of the Xbox One X bundle.
You can also get it at Target with $40 in Target bucks thrown in.

- Xbox One X with Gears 5: $439 (save $100)
- Xbox One S 1TB All-Digital Edition with three-game bundle (Sea of Thieves, Minecraft and Fortnite, with $20 worth of V-Bucks and an outfit): $149 (save $100)
Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals AVAILABLE NOW
Most of the Switch bundles have evaporated in the earliest hours of Thanksgiving, but you can still save $25 on a Nintendo Switch V2 (with the extended battery life). You need to choose the option for the console — NOT the console with $25 Amazon Gift Card — and enter code 397BFFA5 at checkout. Act fast, because we don’t expect this deal to last long.
NOTE: This deal is sold out.
The Switch Lite is barely a month old, and for that reason alone, we didn’t expect to see any deals for Black Friday 2019. But while it’s $200 pretty much everywhere, we did find it — for a limited time, and while supplies last — for $175.
Right now, Antonline (via Google Shopping) has the Nintendo Switch Lite for $175 when you apply promo code 19CYBERNS at checkout.
When this deal runs out, it’s back to $200 pretty much everywhere.

- Mario Tennis Aces: $30 (save $30)
