This chart will help you find the best Black Friday console deals

New, 79 comments

It's that time of the year again: time to pick up a gaming console on the cheap, often with a bunch of goodies thrown in for good measure. Or, you know, to buy one as a gift for someone or whatever.

This year we're trying something new: We're pulling out all of the Black Friday console bundles and discounts we can find and putting them into one handy chart to make it easier for you to shop and compare.

We'll be updating the chart throughout the month with the deals we find, so bookmark this page. You can find all of the nitty gritty on these deals, along with all of the discounts on games and peripherals, on our deals hub.
