GameStop Black Friday ad lists $50 off PS4 and Xbox One, $20 off games (update)

New, 16 comments

GameStop's circular for Black Friday 2015 has leaked online at BestBlackFriday, and thankfully for shoppers who might want to sleep in on the day after Thanksgiving, none of the good deals are so-called doorbusters.

In fact, most of the offers are valid from Black Friday, Nov. 27, through Sunday, Nov. 29. Of course, the usual "while supplies last" caveat applies.

GameStop's Black Friday specials are led by deals on current-generation consoles. The retailer is offering $50 off any Xbox One bundle, including the Xbox One Elite Bundle ($449.99, regularly $499.99) — which includes an Xbox Elite Wireless Controller — and the 500 GB Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle ($299.99, regularly $349.99). One PlayStation 4 package is discounted by $50: the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection bundle, which includes a 500 GB console ($299.99, regularly $349.99).

On the Nintendo front, GameStop is offering a 32 GB Wii U bundled with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Splatoon for $279.99. And on Black Friday only, the New Nintendo 3DS XL will be available for $179.99, $20 off the standard price.

The Xbox One's standard black wireless controller is available for $49.99, $10 cheaper than its regular price, while the GameStop-exclusive "Lunar White" controller is on sale for $44.99, $20 off its regular price. The PS4's DualShock 4 gamepad is on sale for $39.99, $20 cheaper than usual. And the Astro A40 TR headset with MixAmp Pro TR is discounted by $50 to $199.99.

Nearly two dozen games are listed in the ad as being discounted by $20, including the Legendary Edition of Destiny: The Taken King ($39.99), Batman: Arkham Knight ($29.99), The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ($29.99) and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition ($19.99). Buyers of Star Wars Battlefront can get $30 off one of five Electronic Arts games. Guitar Hero Live is also available for $30 off at $69.99. And GameStop's regular customers will appreciate the store's buy-two-get-one-free offer on all pre-owned products.

Peruse the full circular at BestBlackFriday for all of GameStop's weekend deals.

Update: A GameStop representative confirmed to Polygon Nov. 7 that the leaked circular is legitimate, but said that the ad doesn't necessarily contain all of the retailer's Black Friday deals.

"We can confirm that yesterday a Black Friday ad including some of our 2015 Black Friday deals was leaked online," the spokesperson said. "While the deals outlined in this ad are great, we are still in the process of finalizing what we believe will be our best Black Friday offers ever. We will have offers and items shoppers can ONLY find at GameStop on Black Friday as well as throughout the holidays."

Update 2: The leak wasn't the full ad — there are four additional pages at the front, containing deals that begin Tuesday, Nov. 24 — and we've got them for you to look at right here.
