This isn’t the most exciting purchase, I get it, but, if you’re anything like me, then every time your Xbox Wireless controller runs out of charge you think to yourself ‘I should really bulk buy some batteries’. Well, now’s your chance as, for Black Friday, some bog standard AA batteries have been reduced down to a nice affordable price.
You can either get yourself a nice 4-pack of AA high-capacity rechargeable batteries for $5.59 (opens in new tab), down 60% from their usual $13.99 or, if you want to make sure you’re really never going to run dry, by yourself a pack of 24 batteries for $32.29 (opens in new tab), down from $37.99.
You’re not left out in the UK. Why not get a 100-pack for £23.79 (opens in new tab), down 32% from £34.99. If that seems excessive, you can get the smaller and much more cheaply priced 40-pack for £9.38 (opens in new tab), down from £11.03.
Thanks to a free upgrade, you can get Horizon Forbidden West for PS4 and PS5 extremely cheaply in the US and UK right now. GameStop and Tesco are selling off old stock of the PS4 game for just $29 (opens in new tab) and £20 (opens in new tab), respectively. Sony also lets you freely upgrade the PS4 version to the PS5 version, even if you use a disc copy of the game.
So if you’re keen to continue Aloy’s adventure and have been holding off for a good deal, this may be the best you see for a while as the cheapest we’ve seen Forbidden West go for before is £24.99.
What’s this, an actual discount on a PS5? I didn’t know such deals could exist!
In a year where the price of the PS5 has actually increased and stock is still in short supply, it’s amazing to see a retailer has actually knocked money off the hot ticket console. But, if you’re shopping in the UK, you can get a PS5 Digital Edition bundled Just Dance 2023 for £414.98 (opens in new tab), or with the Pulse 3D wireless headset for £458.98 (opens in new tab), down from the usual £474.98.
Now if you’re on the fence about a PS5 vs PS5 Digital Edition, they’re basically the same except one of them doesn’t have a disc drive to play physical games. Though, there are rumors that a disc drive accessory is due to be released in 2023 alongside a PS5 Slim. Still, until Sony confirms that attachment, you’ll need to make peace with only playing games you’ve bought in the PSN store.
If you aren’t seeing a deal you like, one of the best things you can buy during Black Friday are discounted gift cards. They may not seem like an exciting purchase, but you are effectively buying the ability to apply a discount to whatever game you want.
There are currently great discounts on PSN gift cards, both in the US and UK, letting you pick up some of the best PS5 games on the cheap or even to buy a PS Plus subscription, which you should always try to top up during Black Friday
Over on Eneba, you can buy yourself a $100 PSN gift card for $82.71 (opens in new tab), saving you nearly 20% on the card’s price. Meanwhile, in the UK, at Amazon, you can buy a £75 gift card for £63.68 (opens in new tab), a £63 gift card for £56.70 (opens in new tab), and a £38 gift card for £34.20 (opens in new tab). Those may seem like odd prices, but that’s because these gift cards are meant to be for redeeming a year’s subscription of PS Plus Essential, Extra, or Premium.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s been out for less than a month, but it’s already enjoying a steep discount at Walmart, dropping from its box price of $69.99 to just $55 (opens in new tab) on both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Activision Blizzard games, and the Call of Duty series in particular, tend not to see big discounts. Many of the older games are still being sold at full price years after release. So to see the new game drop down to $55 is a surprise.
The shooter is seeing a similar discount in the UK, with Amazon selling Modern Warfare 2 for £56.99 (opens in new tab), down from £69.99.
This is a strange recommendation as it’s not actually much of a saving, but it’s more for if you’re struggling to lay your hands on a PS5.
You may have been eagerly refreshing our PS5 restock page to grab one of the in-short-supply consoles. Currently, to buy one through Amazon and many other stores, you need an invitation.
However, there’s a great bundle on AntOnline that will get you a PS5, a copy of God of War Ragnarok, and an extra DualSense controller in blood-like cosmic red. The bundle will set you back $609.98 (opens in new tab), which is basically what buying the God of War PS5 bundle and a discounted DualSense controller would set you back if bought separately. The advantage of this deal is that you can buy it without waiting on an invitation.
This is an appealing bundle. If I was buying a PS5, this is the game and accessory I’d be wanting to pick up, along with a discounted PS plus subscription.
There have been some excellent Black Friday Xbox controller deals over the past few weeks, but we’re finally starting to see some deep discounts on the Xbox Elite Controller Series 2.
The Elite is the highly-customizable pro controller that Microsoft released for the Xbox Series X|S and PC. It’s a fantastic gamepad that feels wonderful in the hand and can genuinely improve your game, thanks to its hair triggers and rubberized grip.
Normally setting you back $179.99, you can get an Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 Controller for just $129.99 (opens in new tab) over at Newegg, so long as you enter the code ‘BFFDAY22’ at checkout.
While not as good as the Newegg deal in the US, you can pick up an Xbox Elite Wireless Series 2 at a discount in the UK, too. Amazon is selling the pro gamepad for £142 (opens in new tab), down from £159.99.
Walmart’s selling $10 Nintendo eShop gift cards for $9 (opens in new tab). At a time where we’re seeing $50 knocked off consoles, and games going for half-price, a $1 discount may not seem like much to shout about but when it’s money on a gift card, you’re looking at a kind of free money. A $10 game bought with a $10 gift card you bought for $9 is creating your own 10% discount on a game of your choosing.
Also, if you’re looking to give a gift to the gamers in your life, this way you aren’t running the risk of buying them a game they already own, you can give them a gift card and let them buy something for themselves.
Walmart’s reduced the $20 and $35 gift cards, too, but the reduction isn’t as good as the 10% off on the $10 gift card, so I’d recommend just buying multiple $10 gift cards.
Heyo, this is a very sleepy Julian Benson, TRG’s Editor-in-Chief, logging on for the 2am to 10am shift here in the UK. What I may be lacking in energy, I am making up with in deals. I am driven by discounts, succored by savings. That’s not a turn of phrase I’d normally allow on the site, but, as I say, it’s very early in the morning.
I’ll have some fresh deals coming up shortly, but first, a little buying advice. We’re seeing some excellent bundles and discounts on the Nintendo Switch OLED, the upgraded spin on Nintendo’s hybrid console. It’s currently on offer for the lowest price we’ve ever seen it in the UK. And there are some great bundles available, too.
Released last October and boasting a better screen, improved battery life, and snazzy color scheme, the Nintendo Switch OLED may seem like the default version of the console to buy. But, while we wait for what seems like an inevitable Nintendo Switch Pro (especially with the way recent Switch games are struggling to run on the hardware), our hardware writer Rhys Wood makes an excellent case for buying an original Nintendo Switch.
Essentially, if you plan on playing the console primarily in docked mode, then you will see none of the advantages of the Nintendo Switch OLED’s upgrades, and you’re better off getting the cheaper Nintendo Switch. Just look at the deals alongside each other (and note that the cheaper Nintendo Switches also come bundled with games and Nintendo Switch Online membership):
One of the better Black Friday gaming deals that we’ve come across is Battlefield 2042 selling at one of the lowest prices on record right now in the US. You can pick up the multiplayer shooter for just $14.99 (was $40) (opens in new tab) on PS5 and also $14.99 (was $40) (opens in new tab) on Xbox Series X at Best Buy.
The game itself offers a ton of value especially at considerably under the $20 mark on Xbox Series X and PS5. There are not only your traditional multiplayer modes, which continue to develop with the game’s recent Season 3: Escalation update, but also Portal mode, too. For the low price of entry, you can experience 128-player open warfare scenarios, which can’t really be compared to other shooters on the market right now.
Do you want to make the most out of some of the best fighting games without breaking the bank? If so, you’re in luck. The Hori Fighting Commander Octa is down to just $39.99 (was $50) (opens in new tab) for a $10 saving at Amazon right now in the US. Don’t fret if you’re based overseas, though, as you can also pick up the fight pad for £39.99 (was £42) (opens in new tab) at Amazon UK, too.
What we like the most about this fighting game controller is that you have an eight-way gate by the D-pad making certain 3D titles, such as Tekken 7, a little easier to play with analog movement instead of pure digital. This is the cheapest that we’ve seen the gamepad in the US and the UK, making now the ideal time to consider stepping up your game in the likes of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.
Interested in having Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus on the go at a reduced rate? You’re in the right place! With the cloud streaming component of the service arguably now more popular than ever, the Backbone One appears to be a good companion. This iPhone-compatible controller is selling for $74.99 (was $100) (opens in new tab) for a $25 saving. It’s the cheapest price we’re able to verify.
On the other side of the fence, there’s the Nacon MG-X Pro which takes heavy inspiration from the Xbox Wireless Controller in approach. It’s selling for only $79.99 at Amazon (was $100) (opens in new tab) and is compatible with Android phones, so we’ve covered both bases here!
Are you someone who wants low latency for Esports titles at an equally competitive price? The Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma is currently selling for its historic lowest-ever price point at Amazon. You can get your hands on the latest wired high-tech Xbox controller for just $99.99 (was $150) (opens in new tab) for a $50 saving. It’s a return to a price we’ve only seen once this year – but it’s never been bettered!
What we like about the Razer Wolverine V2 Chroma for Xbox Series X is how adjustable it is. You can customize your layout with reprogrammable buttons and take advantage of hairline trigger stops for less travel time. A cool touch is the mechanical microswitches in the face buttons for that satisfying clickiness.
Hey everyone! This is Aleksha McLoughlin, TRG’s Hardware Editor here and I’m running the live blog for the next few hours!
Do you like challenging games? Furthermore, do you enjoy deep discounts on exclusive titles? Well, I have one of the most aggressive PS5 game deals for you! That’s because Demon’s Souls has come crashing down to just $29.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) for a huge $40 saving (over half price!).
It’s not just those in the US that can get the bleeding edge remake for a competitive price point. That’s because Demon’s Souls is also available in the UK for only £34.99 (was £70) at Game (opens in new tab), too. If you’ve never played the original PS3 release, or are looking to jump back into the kingdom of Boletaria for less.
Spiderman Miles Morales came out two years ago and still holds up as one of the most enjoyable games you can get on a PS5.
These discounts on the fantastic game are a great start for those looking to expand their PlayStation library. Or maybe you just want to treat yourself and haven’t been able to find the great Black Friday PS5 deals you want.
Either way, Spiderman Miles Morales is going for $19.99 (opens in new tab) at Target and £22.99 (opens in new tab) over at Argos. This is a great deal on a game that is usually priced at eyewatering heights.
The Nintendo Switch is an excellent console at home or on the go, but do you ever feel nervous about venturing into the unknown with it by your side?
I have to admit that I’m yet to get a case for my Nintendo Switch Lite, and it’s been weighing on my mind; how far am I willing to push my luck?
This bad habit may change thanks to the great Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals. It may be the best time to secure a trustworthy Switch Case.
In the US, the sturdy RDS Industries 12″ Hard Case is currently on discount for $29.99 (opens in new tab) at Best Buy. The UK also has some cool deals with a fantastic Pokemon case priced at £12.99 (opens in new tab) at Amazon.
Who doesn’t love a good cowboy game? Thankfully it just got easier to buy the much-loved Red Dead Redemption 2, as Black Friday has given us some stellar deals.
Over at Target, the game is currently priced at $19.99 (a $40 discount). While the UK also has some great prices, with the game sitting at £13 (opens in new tab) on Amazon. It’s the dream for any rootin’ and tootin’ cowboy fans out there.
The Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) is a seriously good console, but there’s no reason you can’t make your experience better. When it comes to accessories, headsets are a definite game-changer.
You may not think about it, but audio is crucial to getting immersed in a great story-driven single-player game. Or it can be the key to multiplayer games, where accuracy and clarity down a mic are necessary when pushing the point or coordinating attacks with your mates.
Thankfully this Black Friday (opens in new tab), we’re seeing great deals on some of our best Xbox Series X headsets. From the ESPOS H3 headset, currently at $87.48 (opens in new tab) at GameStop, to the SteelSeries Arctis 9X on Amazon for £109.99 (opens in new tab).
If you love Mortal Kombat and arcade games, then this deal is perfect for you. Smyths have put its Arcade1Up Mortal Kombat Midway Legacy Edition Machine on offer, priced at £319.99 (opens in new tab).
There’s also some great prices on Mortal Combat games. Over at Amazon, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate (PS5) is currently 46%, sitting at a clean £13.47.
There have been some terrific Black Friday Nintendo Switch deals, but what about Switch accessories? Thankfully these amazing controllers have come in clutch.
If you’ve been looking for a different way to enhance your Switch gaming experience, check out discounts on PowerA Enhanced Wired Controllers on Amazon for as little as $17.99 (opens in new tab).
Hello all! 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 bit 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. Wahooo!
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 just £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 offering. 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 controller, then 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 $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 your 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 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.
If you’re on the hunt for a great PlayStation 5 headset then you’re in luck. We’re already seeing discounts on some of the best PS5 headsets right now, in both the US and UK, at a variety of retailers.
In the US, you can save just over $30 on the PlayStation PULSE 3D Wireless Headset (opens in new tab), $20 on the Razer X Kaira (opens in new tab), $50 on the Astro Gaming A50, (opens in new tab)and over $90(!) on the EPOS H3 Hybrid (opens in new tab).
In the UK, too, there’s £18 off the PlayStation PULSE 3D Wireless Headset (opens in new tab) (and £20 off the Midnight Black edition (opens in new tab)), $70 off the Astro Gaming A50 (opens in new tab), nearly $30 off the Razer Kaira X (opens in new tab), and a whopping £70 off the SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ (opens in new tab).
While I expect some of these headsets will come down in price closer to the big day on Friday, if you’re wanting a discount on a great PS5 headset then you can’t go wrong with these deals.
