UPDATE: We have added links to Black Friday deals we listed as they become active. In addition we have added a few more sales to our Black Friday section. See the links below to take advantage while they last. See the original article, with added links, below.


There were a lot of deals leading up to the launch of the PlayStation 4, and a few along with the Xbox One, but the real event on the horizon of video game pricing is Black Friday. There have been a few Black Friday advertisement leaks and other previews online. We’ve rounded them all up and found some more deals for games online in this edition of Pricefall.

Black Friday

We’re taking a break from price-tracking this week to track the upcoming Black Friday deals on November 29. Keep in mind most of these deals are specific to Black Friday or the days surrounding it, and many of the print ads may only apply in-store to certain locations. However, many of these deals may be available online as well. Most of the deals here highlight mainstream titles, but there are a few less obvious games from the ads we were able to pick from, along with some hardware deals. Scroll to the currently active sales below for more niche deals along with other mainstream titles.
