Game consoles are always hot ticket items on black fridays, if only because it's rare to see them discounted at other times of the year. With the latest revisions at least one year old, there are some great deals to get.
We have linked the offers we can, but some are only available on Black Friday, and only in retail stores. Most retailers will also offer discounts on multiple games and accessories.
PlayStation 4 Deals
PS4 is the standard for this console generation in terms of pure sales. But it will also be quite far in the teeth, so there are some good bundles offered for the hardware at the entrance level. The deal to hit is a bundle of the revised PS4 Slim and the excellent open-world Spider-Man, available together for $ 200 at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and probably some other electronics-heavy retailers as well. It's $ 100 of bundle price and $ 160 less than you pay for the console and game separately.

Xbox One Deals
Xbox One is also running because of its lack of true exclusions. But the good news is that if you hope to choose a cheap, you can. Microsofts Minecraft bundle with the popular game and an entry level Xbox One S are offered at 100 USD at multiple retailers, but Target and Kohl are the ones to buy from if you hope for maximum value. They offer $ 20 and an impressive $ 60 gift card.

Nintendo Switch Deals
The switch is definitely the hot console this year thanks to a lot of Nintendo exclusive like Pokemon Let's Go and Super Smash Bros. ultimate . But discounts on the hardware itself and the various bundles Nintendo offers is hard to find. The company's concession to Black Friday is to throw in a digital copy of the popular but dated Mario Kart 8 at most major retailers. Discounts on Nintendo's official controllers are hard to find, but can we suggest some 8BitDo pads or the new Wireless Gamecube control from PowerA if you hope to save you a little?

Other Nintendo Deals
If you're not on the market for a full-sized home console, check out the Nintendo 2DS. The annual special edition of these basic level hard disk features Super Mario Maker (a $ 40 value) and a matching color scheme. It has no discounts, but the custom-made laptops tend to sell fast. If you hope to jump on the rage of the classic console, Kohls Super NES Classic sells at the retail price with a gift card of $ 15.
