Target's Black Friday ad is finally available online, and it's got pages upon pages of hardware and software deals that will be available throughout the holiday weekend.

A BIG PRICE CUT FOR THE WII U, AND THE NEW 3DS TOO

The retailer will offer the Wii U at a considerable discount. A bundle including Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Splatoon will cost $249.99. Target notes that this is a discount of nearly $120 for the 32 GB deluxe set.

Target will also sell New Nintendo 3DS systems for $179.99. Priced $20 off, the ad notes that this is the store's "lowest price ever" for the revamped handheld.

YET ANOTHER $299 PS4

The Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection PlayStation 4 bundle will be $299, a deal that the majority of stores will also be offering. Target also lists the item as a doorbuster, meaning that when stores open on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. you can expect this set to be low-stock and gone quickly.

GRAB A HUGE COUPON WITH AN XBOX ONE

While the price for the Gears of War Xbox One bundle — $299 — is matched by many other stores' Black Friday sales, Target includes an added bonus with its version of the deal. Pick up the bundle and you'll also nab a $60 Target gift card with your purchase, which is enough to buy you a second, full-priced game.

SPEAKING OF GAMES...

A number of games, including plenty of the season's biggest titles, will be discounted or come with gift cards.

For $15 you can grab Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Mario Kart 7, Evolve or several other games. You can also buy a 3-month Xbox Live membership at that price point.

$20 will get you Bloodborne, while $25 is enough for Batman: Arkham Knight. You can spend $35 to pick up one of the following recent releases: Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Need for Speed, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Destiny: The Taken King and more.

Certain new releases, like Halo 5: Guardians and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, as well as Splatoon and Super Mario Maker, will still be sold at their standard price points, but Target will include $15 gift cards with your purchase.

DEALS ON ROCK BAND AND GUITAR HERO

Target will be heavily discounting the recent returns of gaming's two marquee music franchises. Guitar Hero Live will be marked down to $59.99 across all platforms.

Rock Band 4, on the other hand, will cost you $199, but the set Target has for sale is a store-exclusive. The retailer is selling a special band-in-a-box bundle of the game and its updated instruments, including a special red guitar controller.

Both are available as limited quantity doorbuster items.

TOYS-TO-LIFE TITLES

Games like Lego Dimensions, Skylanders Superchargers and Disney Infinity 3.0 will also receive sizable price cuts for the holiday, netting you the starter sets for the games.

Disney Infinity 3.0 will be a doorbuster item and cost $34.99 for the Star Wars-themed basic pack. Skylander Superchargers will be in limited supply, as well, and sell for the same price.

Additional figures for both games will be on sale for $11, as well.

Lego Dimensions will run you $79.99, down from $99.99, and again is available as a starter pack.

BUY APPLE PRODUCTS, GET A GIFT CARD

Target will give away huge gift cards with your purchase of any of the iPads on the market. The value of the card ranges from $100 with the original $399 iPad Air to $150 with a $499 iPad Air 2.

A $349 Apple Watch gets you a $100 gift card as well.

Target's big Black Friday sales kick off Nov. 26 and run through the holiday weekend.
