Game consoles are always hot ticket items on black friday, if only because it's rare to see them discounted at other times of the year. With the latest reviews, at least one year old, there are some great deals to get.
We have linked the agreements we can, but some are only available on Black Friday, and some only in retail stores. Most retailers will also offer discounts on multiple games and accessories.
PlayStation 4 Deals
PS4 is the standby winner of this console generation in terms of pure sales. But it will be quite long in the tooth, so there are some good bundles offered for the entry level. The deal to beat is a package 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 $ 1

Xbox One Deals
The Xbox One is also driven thanks to the lack of true exclusivity. But the good news is that if you hope to pick up cheap, you can. Microsofts Minecraft bundle of the popular game and an entry level Xbox One S is offered for $ 100 on multiple retailers, but Target and Kohl are the ones to buy from if you're hoping for maximum value. They offer $ 20 and impressive $ 60 gift cards, respectively.

Nintendo Switch Offer
The switch is definitely the hot console this year thanks to a variety of Nintendo exclusives like Pokemon Let's Go and Super Smash Bros. ultimate . But it's hard to find discounts on the hardware itself, and the different bundles Nintendo offers. The company's license for Black Friday is to deposit a digital copy of popular, but dated Mario Kart 8 at most major retailers. Discounts on Nintendo's official controls are hard to find, but can we suggest some 8BitDo pads or the new Wireless Gamecube Controller from PowerA if you hope to save you?

Other Nintendo Deals
If you're not in the market for a full home console, check out the Nintendo 2DS. The annual special edition of this entry-level hardware feature Super Mario Maker (a $ 40 value) and a matching color scheme. It has no discounts, but the specially expanded notebooks tend to sell quickly. If you hope to jump on the classical console's race, Kohl's Super NES Classic sells at retail price with a gift card of $ 15.
