Black Friday 2020 Consoles and Games Sales, Deals For PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and More

Black Friday is a great opportunity to save on gaming consoles, accessories, and video games from PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, and more. There are plenty of deals to be had this year, with huge discounts on games, hardware, and subscriptions.

Following the releases of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X earlier this month, Black Friday may also be a second chance for gamers to get their hands on the elusive consoles. However, gamers should not expect deals on the brand new consoles this year—being able to buy one at all would be enough of a feat.

Nevertheless, there are still plenty of deals to be had on major games and hardware including gaming laptops, headphones, and more.
