Black Friday is almost here! Odds are there's something going on sale that will be right for you, but don't go in unprepared. Brands like Target and Walmart are already rolling out previews of their best deals on electronics, movies, and video games, and we're here to sift through it all to find the best savings on the stuff you've been waiting for.

This gallery will focus on Best Buy's best Black Friday game deals, but if you're interested in other retailers too, be sure to check out our coverage of Target's offerings and what Walmart has in store, and stay tuned to GameSpot in the week to come for more great sales.

What's that? You're ready to take the leap into 4K HDR but you don't have a compatible TV yet? If you've earmarked Black Friday as the time to buy, consult our collection of the best cheap TV deals on Black Friday, where you can find everything from $200 4K TV's being sold on location Meijer stores, to a massive 75-inch 4K TV for the relatively low price of $1,200 directly from Samsung online.

To make sure you don't miss anything, check out our complete lineup of Black Friday deals here, and our article covering the dates and times every deal goes into effect. And now, onto Best Buy's best game deals of Black Friday 2018.


1-Year PlayStation Plus Subscription -- $40


While you'd typically have to pay $60 for a year of PlayStation Plus--the online service for PlayStation 4 that gives you access to free games everything month, cloud storage, and exclusive multiplayer access for specific games--Best Buy will hook you up for only $40 during its Black Friday sale. Even if you have a subscription going, the year you purchase will simply be tallied on top of your current plan.

Xbox One X w/ Battlefield V & Extra Controller -- $430


An Xbox One X will usually run you $500, whether for a standalone console or with a free game--who wouldn't take the latter? $500 is a lot of money, of course, but for $70 off, with an extra controller (a $50 value) and a copy of Battlefield V, Black Friday might be the best time to splurge on an X with Best Buy selling the bundle for only $430. Even with Microsoft discounting its consoles by $100 from Nov. 18 to Nov. 26, this bundle is still a great deal.

1-Year Xbox Game Pass Subscription -- $70


Like PlayStation Plus, Xbox Game Pass is an online subscription service that adds everyday value to your console by way of giving you a rotating selection of games to play. Unlike PS Plus, the number of games is vastly higher, at over 100 different titles, and games will be slowly cycled in and out over time, rather than monthly, as is the norm for PS Plus. The cherry on top: if you like a game enough that you'd rather own it than play it on a temporary basis, Game Pass owners enjoy a 20% discount on games that are also available on the service.

PSVR with Astro Bot and Moss -- $200


With Tetris Effect making waves recently, there are a lot of people wondering if now is the time to pickup a PSVR headset. Though not as widely talked about, both Astro Bot and Moss are two other well-received VR games in recent memory, and they might be the icing on the cake if you pickup the headset bundle with those two games for the cost of the headset alone, at $200, on Black Friday. To put the savings in context: this bundle is normally $300.

Buy at Best Buy: PSVR Moss and Astro Bot Bundle


Fallout 76 with Blackout Yeti mic -- $100


Fallout 76 will have launched only days before Black Friday arrives, yet it's part of a very good deal on a bundled Yeti mic, in the Blackout color scheme (normally $140 alone). That bundle is available today, but at an increased cost of 50% over the Black Friday price, at $150; save $50 during Black Friday if this bundle helps you check off two "needs" at once.

Buy at Best Buy: Fallout 76 and Blackout Yeti


God of War for PlayStation 4 -- $25


God of War is one the most beloved games of the year, and if you haven't played it, Best Buy selling it for a mere $25 is as good a sign as any that your time has come. As far as we can tell this is the cheapest it's ever been, so don't hesitate to pick it up if you've been waiting.

SoulCalibur 6 -- $35


SoulCalibur VI has only been out for a few weeks, and by all accounts it's an excellent fighting game that has rekindled interest in the series at large. The fact that Best Buy will be selling it for a paltry $35 is hard to believe, but believe it, and jump on the deal when it goes live later this month.

Buy at Best Buy: PS4 Xbox One


Bayonetta 2 -- $40


Nintendo is known to keep the price of its games at the original MSRP for years after release. So when you see a deal for a game like Bayonetta 2 on the horizon, it's worth paying attention if you've got Nintendo on the mind. Not only is Bayonetta 2 an incredible action game, but it's just half the story here--every copy also includes a download code for the original Bayonetta on the Switch eShop. In other words: you can get two excellent games for less than the price of one.

Buy at Best Buy: Bayonetta 2


Assassin's Creed Odyssey -- $30


Speaking of heavy discounts on new and popular games, Assassin's Creed Odyssey for half price at $30 is a heck of a deal. Odyssey veers sharply into RPG territory, more so than last year's Origins, and is a massive game dense with missions and interesting people to meet. This is the cheapest it's ever been, so what're you waiting for?

Buy at Best Buy: PS4 Xbox One


Forza Horizon 4 -- $30


Whether you are into more serious simulation racing games, or prefer a bit of arcade action behind the wheel, the Forza series has a game for you. The Horizon games take the more hardcore racing model of the Motorsport series and soften the difficulty a bit to let you explore a vast open world at your leisure. It's one of the best-looking racing games on consoles, and it offers an incredibly detailed and varied world with seasons that change week-to-week.

Buy at Best Buy: Forza Horizon 4


Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age -- $30


Dragon Quest is a classic series, and one of the most popular in Japan. The latest game, Dragon Quest XI, is very comfortable upholding tradition, and focusing on the basics isn't a bad thing--it works in the series' favor. In Dragon Quest XI, players can enjoy a highly refined iteration of the seminal Japanese RPG formula that kicked off an entire genre. Dragon Quest XI is a massive, great looking, and infinitely charming game that may fly under a lot of people's radars, but it's a steal at $30. If you have any interest in seeing why Dragon Quest is such a big deal in Japan, now is the perfect time to test the waters.

Massive PS4 Game Sale On The US PlayStation Store This Week

1 Share

Each Tuesday, Sony refreshes the weekly deals on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games on the PlayStation Store. And while many other retailers are offering barebones sales this week (presumably saving their best deals for Black Friday), the PlayStation Store has some fine discounts on great games this week. As usual, to get the discounts on some of the games, you'll need a PlayStation Plus membership.

For starters, most PS4 Final Fantasy games are on sale, so if you've been waiting for a sale to round out your collection, now is a good time to buy. Final Fantasy VII is on sale for $10, while Final Fantasy IX will run you $12.60. Next come a pair of remasters, with Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster on sale for $15 and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age down to $25.

Also on sale is the recent Tomb Raider trilogy. You can grab Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for $6, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration for $12, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider--which just came out in September--for $30.

Those who only want to spend a few bucks can pick up a handful of games for next to nothing. The often-overlooked Square Enix game Murdered: Soul Suspect is on sale for just $2 right now. For $6, you can buy Just Cause 3 to get ready for the upcoming sequel. And if you're into smaller-scale games, you can grab Hitman Go: Definitive Edition for $2 or Lara Croft Go for $2.50.

You'll find more of our picks listed below, or you can head to the PlayStation Store to find the full sale, encompassing over 600 items. To see if any of these deals will be beat on Black Friday, check out our roundup of all the best PS4 Black Friday deals you'll find next week.

Path of Exile’s December Betrayal expansion brings back Bestiary, Incursion, and Delve with proper housing to boot

Every time Grinding Gear games puts out a new update or expansion for Path of Exile – and they come like clockwork – it creates a conundrum for me. Each new league is invariably cool and I can’t wait to play it, but I also am never finished playing the old one! I am all for […]
