Best Buy’s Black Friday ad has dropped, revealing a series of doorbusters that kick off on Thanksgiving Day. Expect deals on some of this and last year’s biggest game releases, alongside other gaming hardware, TVs and more.

The best of those gaming deals from Best Buy’s Black Friday sale are below. We’ll update this post with new deals as they drop and remove any products that have sold out. As always, we’ll also be tweeting highlights from this and other Black Friday sales over at @PolygonDeals.

Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console deals

As always, Nintendo Switch console deals will be hard to come by, although there is a nice bundle going on sale in time for the big sales day. But Best Buy has price cuts on both the Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 slim for Black Friday, and they’re steep. While both of these bundles will hit stores on Nov. 18 for early shoppers, the discounts on them won’t go live until Nov. 23.

Gaming PC and hardware deals

Best Buy has a handful of capable PCs on sale including:

Gaming controllers, headsets, keyboard and mouse deals

Black Friday is a good time to get controllers, and Best Buy will have PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch controllers on sale.

If you want a cheap-but-good pair of headsets, Best Buy has those covered too. Wired Turtle Beach headsets will go for cheap.

For more high-end models, Astro Gaming headsets will be on sale for up to 30 percent off.

We’ll throw in PlayStation VR as a headset, and bundles will be on sale for $100 off. That cuts the price down to between $200 and $250 for sets including great games like Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Moss.

Video game deals

Best Buy has a ton of games on sale, ranging from $19.99 to $29.99 — with as much as a $40 savings on some titles. These include big hits like God of War on PlayStation 4 and Monster Hunter: World, in case you missed out on these early-2018 titles.

Below is a sampling of a few other notable games on sale this Black Friday:

4K TV and monitor deals

Black Friday is a good time to grab a 4K TV, if you don’t already have one. While some of the bigger ones still run at steep prices, there will be some super affordable ones available at Best Buy. These are the 4K TVs with HDR that run for sub-$350:

If you want to maximize those savings by buying a higher-end set for a bunch of bucks off, these are a few of the ones Best Buy will have on sale:

Online Service Deals

Memberships for both Sony’s and Microsoft’s online services are discounted by up to $20. If you’re planning on playing any online games on your new PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you’ll need to sign up for a subscription.
