e know we aren’t the only ones getting seriously excited about the gaming scene right now.
PS5 and Xbox Series X made a huge splash last year but stock is still as elusive as ever meaning that some are only just getting their hands on the new consoles, seven years after the release of their predecessors.
There’s also been the drop of the new Nintendo Switch OLED – the first to use the richer visuals associated with OLED to offer a more vivid gaming experience.
All that excitement and the best is still yet to come. Black Friday is approaching and with it comes a slew of discounts and deals across games, consoles and accessories for you to step up your set-up.
Whether you are planning ahead to Christmas to gift the gaming lover in your life or taking the opportunity to invest in the items you’ve had your eye on, you can be sure that there will be epic discounts across Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and more.
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year?
Each year, the exact date that Black Friday will take place slightly alters as it comes the day after Thanksgiving. Over in the US, the celebration is always on the fourth Thursday of November and thus, the sales event is always on the fourth Friday.
That being said, we expect the sales to kickstart much earlier. Taking into consideration how things went down last year and with the current shortages situation, retailers are likely to get started on their sales throughout the month so… watch this space.
What gaming deals can I expect?
Speaking of games, you may be tired of your current selection and the Black Friday sales are the perfect opportunity to try something new.
Your timeold headset could be in need of an upgrade to give you better sound quality and a clearer microphone or create the ultimate gaming experience by investing in a chair or wall decor. There’s deals aplenty.
