Best Buy’s Black Friday ad has dropped, revealing a series of doorbusters that kick off on Thanksgiving Day. Expect deals on some of this and last year’s biggest game releases, alongside other gaming hardware, TVs and more.
While we don’t advocate going to the stores on Thanksgiving Day, many will. Our opinions don’t matter much, but they are working on a holiday because of you. So, here are some of the highlights from the ad.
NINTENDO SWITCH, PLAYSTATION 4 AND XBOX ONE CONSOLE DEALS
Nintendo Switch console deals will be hard to come by. Although there is a nice bundle going on sale in time for the big sales day. Best Buy has price cuts on both the Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 slim for Black Friday. They’re steep. These bundles will hit stores on Nov. 18 for early shoppers, but the discounts go live until Nov. 23.
- Nintendo Switch bundle with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe — $299.99 ($60 off)
- PlayStation 4 slim 1 TB bundle with Marvel’s Spider-Man — $199.99 ($100 off)

Best Buy has a ton of games on sale, ranging from $19.99 to $29.99 — with as much as a $40 savings on some titles. These include big hits like God of War on PlayStation 4 and Monster Hunter: World, in case you missed out on these early-2018 titles.
