There’s hardware, software, gadgets and gifts available in the Game Black Friday sale.
Remember when Black Friday used to be just a day, and getting there first really mattered? I remember queueing up outside my local Game store to pick up a PS4 for a third off, in the cold November air, waiting for midnight. The staff were miserable, I was miserable, and the limited number of people in the shop rule – designed to expedite the process and prevent a crush – hadn’t reckoned on lonely basement-dwellers, who had mostly come down for a chat with the staff.
Get in. Get what you want. Get out. Who goes to a Black Friday sale to browse? Know what you want or stay home, people!
The point is, Black Friday sales are a lot more civilised when you can do it from home, in your slippers, and with the ever-expanding sale period encompassing not just Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but days before and after, it’s making those savings even more easy to come by.
The Game Black Friday sale kicked off at 6pm this evening, and it includes some deals on consoles and games. Here are some of the highlights.

- Xbox One X White 1TB + Fallout 76 – £379.99 (£70 off)
- Nintendo Switch + screen protector + Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + Pokemon Let’s Go – £344.99 (£44 off)

There’s also a raft of controllers, headsets, and other accessories and gifts available in the Game Black Friday sale.
Three things to note: firstly, these prices are only while stocks last. Secondly, these prices are only guaranteed online; prices in store may vary. And thirdly, they’ll endeavour to despatch them in up to seven days, but shipping might not be as fast – or items not together – as they would be under normal circumstances.
But still, there are some good savings to be had, especially on the Xbox hardware bundles. Fill your boots, kids.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
