Black Friday video game deals to shop now from PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and more – NBC News


Ever since the Atari 2600, video games have been a staple of holiday shopping — and this year is no exception, with retailers slashing prices on video games and video game accessories for consoles and PCs during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales derby.

Though prized current-generation consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox One are still close to impossible to come by — no thanks to the double-whammy of a microchip shortage and global shipping crisis —there are still plenty of deals to take advantage of, especially when it comes to the ever-popular, cross-generational favorite the Nintendo Switch and major retailers like Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon.

We’ve looked through our previous coverage, considered Select reader interest and consulted price trackers to find top-quality deals and sales for you to consider this Black Friday holiday shopping season.
