This is shaping up to be an exceptional Black Friday for video game deals, despite a few initial stumbles. We've sorted through the many, many Gears of War and Uncharted console bundles to bring you the very best Black Friday gaming ads from Target, GameStop, Dell Home, and more. Read on for our top picks.
The Best Black Friday Gaming Ads
Xbox One 500GB Gears of War Bundle with Fallout 4, Extra Controller for $300 at Dell Home
If you're looking to maximize your Xbox loot this Black Friday, then this is the Gears of War bundle you want to grab. The addition of Fallout 4 (a just-released game that we're seeing advertised at list price) and an extra controller (worth an additional $39 at least) adds almost $100 in value to this bundle. Sorry, Target.
PlayStation 4 Uncharted Collection 500GB Bundle with $75 in Kohl's Cash for $300 at Kohl's
There's just no beating this Kohl's Cash offer. While Toys "R" Us, Walmart, Best Buy, Target,Sam's Club, and GameStop are all offering the PlayStation 4 Uncharted 500GB console bundle for around $300 during Black Friday, only Kohl's is also offering a $75 credit.
Nintendo Wii U Smash Splat 32GB Bundle with $30 Meijer Custom Coupon for $250 at Meijer
Any discount on Nintendo games is reason to celebrate, especially when it comes to huge hits like Splatoon and Super Smash Bros. Assuming you'll use the $30 credit, this ad effectively reduces this bundle's price to $220 and beats out the Black Friday offers from a host of bigger retailers: GameStop, Walmart, Target, and Toys "R" Us.
Skylanders SuperChargers Starter Pack or Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack for $35 at Target
The best Black Friday price on either of these current-gen starter packs that we've seen, these ads edge out Walmart's deals by $2. However, the popularity of these franchises suggests that even deeper price cuts could be on the horizon.
Up to 85% off PC Game Downloads at GameStop
GameStop isn't usually our first pick for game downloads, but the retailer has already boasted a healthy crop of Editors' Choice PC deals in 2015. Furthermore, at up to 85% off, this promises to be the biggest digital game sale we've seen from GameStop in over a year. (We saw up to 75% off in July.)
Pre-Owned PlayStation 3 80GB Console or Xbox 360 Original Console for $80 at GameStop
We didn't expect previous-gen consoles to play a big role this Black Friday, but GameStop isn't messing around with these bargain-basement prices. At $80, both the entry-level PS3 and Original Xbox 360 are set to shatter our predictions for second-hand consoles.
