Remember when Black Friday used to just be the Friday after Thanksgiving, and only in America? Now it’s all over the world and it lasts for weeks!
Black Friday is traditionally a way of clearing out old stock prior to the Christmas sales. It’s like the opposite of January sales here in the UK and is far more useful; Black Friday at least gives you chance to do your Christmas shopping and save plenty of money in advance.
Not only is it becoming a global event, it’s growing in size. This year, the Amazon Black Friday deals actually kick off today, Monday, November 14, 2016. Yep, that’s right: the Amazon Black Friday deals are starting on a Monday, two weeks before Thanksgiving.
Still, who are we to complain? It’s lots of lovely money off. Head over to Amazon to see what’s on offer.
Check back with us over the next two weeks for the best Black Friday gaming deals, including what Amazon have to offer. Expect to see a lot of full-size PS4s and Xbox Ones in the wake of the PS4 Slim, PS4 Pro and Xbox One S.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
