Well before Black Friday, there were tons of gaming deals swirling around the internet, like dust kicked up by the release of two new consoles: the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Now that the newest iterations are out, previous-gen games are seeing discounts all over the place. It’s good timing with the holiday season upon us, but Covid-19 is still raging around the country, and most of us can’t see family. Video games provide a great way to connect with loved ones at a safe distance. We hope our favorite Black Friday video game and accessory deals will help in these trying times.
We strike through items that sell out or are no longer at their deal price as of publishing. Discounts sometimes return, so check for yourself. We will update this guide throughout the weekend.

WIRED’s Black Friday Coverage
Nintendo’s at-home and on-the-go console has been a popular little guy ever since it first came out in 2017, and it’s only gotten better over time. With a robust library of AAA and indie games to choose from, the Switch is my favorite couch-side companion for these winter months. See our Best Switch Accessories and Best Switch Games guides for more picks.
