By Jamie Wallace, Wednesday, 23 November 2016 15:34 GMT

Today may be Pokémon Sun & Moon launch day, but Black Friday will wait for no one. As such, the deals are still coming thick and fast from a wide variety of retailers online and we’re here with another roundup of the best deals from today.

As we’ve mentioned before, this post will be about gaming deals but if you’re interested in checking out various techy or non-gaming related deals, head over to Jelly Deals where we’ll be keeping track of deals on everything from TVs to Chromecasts. We also have pages dedicated to PS4 Black Friday deals and Xbox One Black Friday deals right here on VG247.

EA’s Origin service is having its own Black Friday sale this week, with some big discounts on some high-profile EA titles as well as a smattering of non-EA games. Among the rabble, you can find the below highlights.

Titanfall 2, Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield 1 are involved as well, but these are currently cheaper from Amazon UK. Not sure what’s going on with the cross-regional pricing of The Sims 4 also, but EA is clearly not sticking with strict currency conversion across territories.

xcom_2_anarchys_children_2

XCOM 2 is, in this writer’s opinion, a wonderful game. A wonderful game that will frustrate you out of your own skull, sure, but a wonderful one nonetheless. The recent console release of the game is down to $29.99 on either format at Amazon US right now and is definitely worth a look for that price.

dragon_ball_z_the_battle_of_z_31

Look, I’m not going to pretend I know anything of real depth about Dragon Ball. I know that there’s a green guy named after a type of flute, some of the people have tails and they made a terrible live action movie of it years ago. Regardless of any of that, the latest game in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series (Xenoverse 2, appropriately enough) is down to $29.99 on Xbox One and PS4 at Amazon US right now.

The game’s, let’s call it rocky, launch a good set of months in the past now, you can grab a copy of Street Fighter 5 on Amazon US right now for the low price of $19.95. By now, you’ll also be buying a much more complete and polished version of the game than it was at launch.

While Conor McGregor seemingly cannot be stopped in real life (well, except that one time), you can put your own created character up to the challenge yourself if you like, with a copy of UFC 2 on Xbox One or PS4 at the reduced price of $39.99.

The uber-colourful and relatively insane Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is down to a mere $19.99 over at GameStop on either Xbox One or PS4 right now. That kind of price begins to rival the cost of the original PvZ on mobile devices, but you’ll get all that manic multiplayer action to boot.
