Everything seems to start earlier these days. Did you notice how the Christmas ads were on the telly before we’d spooked ourselves silly on Halloween? Well, to follow that, some of the best Black Friday deals are now live even though we’re still a week away from the day itself. What is this madness?
To try and help you wade through the flood of offers, we’ve put together a quick list gathering up some of the best Black Friday deals we’ve spotted so far in the world of gaming and tech. Below, we’ll be bringing you all the top PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch offers, as well as all the related TVs and gadgetry you’ll want to get your hands on over the Black Friday period.
Best Black Friday Nintendo Switch deal
- Nintendo Switch + Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu + Just Dance 2019 – £299.99
- Nintendo Switch Fortnite Double Helix – $299.99
We’re expecting a lot more Nintendo Switch deals to go up throughout Black Friday 2018, but these are the best Black Friday deals so far. The UK option is especially good if you’re looking to pick up Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu as the game only came out today. Get it as part of this bundle and you’re saving over £50 altogether. If you’re in the US, waiting for a better bundle might be the best choice.

- Starlink: Battle for Atlas – £39.99
- LA Noire – £12.99
- Dark Souls: Remastered – £28.85
- Nintendo Labo: Robot Kit – $59.99
- Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – $54.83
Sure, Starlink: Battle for Atlas is also available on PS4 and Xbox One, but those versions of the game don’t allow you to play as Starfox, do they? There you go, easiest decision you’ll ever need to make.
Best Black Friday Nintendo 3DS deal
Don’t let them tell you that the 3DS is no more…whomever ‘they’ are. It’s still alive and kicking – and has a vast back catalogue of excellent games for you to play on the go. If you’re after a Nintendo 3DS then this is the best Black Friday deal we’ve spotted so far. You even get the super-cute Pikachu version for your troubles.
