  • One of the most convenient ways to play your PS5 games via Remote Play is with the Backbone One mobile gaming controller. This device has PlayStation styling and a USB-C jack, so it’s cross-compatible with iOS and Android phones. It costs $69.99 (was $99.99).
  • Forspoken for PS5 is $19.99 at Best Buy (was $69.99)
  • God of War Ragnarök is $34.99 for PS5 at Best Buy, easily sailing past the lowest price we’d seen for the game.
  • The physical version of Red Dead Redemption for PS4 (also playable on PS5) is $29.99 at Best Buy (was $49.99). In case you’ve always wanted a PS4 disc copy of one of the PS3 era’s defining games, albeit with very few modern updates, you can now buy it. Since launch, Rockstar Games added a 60 frames per second mode you can turn on while playing the game on PS5.
  • Final Fantasy 16 for PS5 is $35 (was $69.99) at Amazon. Square Enix’s latest entry embraces a surprisingly deep real-time combat system. This is the lowest price that we’ve seen yet for the game (which is still exclusive to PS5 — for now), so there’s never been a better time to buy.
  • Assassin’s Creed Mirage for PS5 is $39.99 (was $49.99, also available for Xbox Series X). This game recently launched, and beyond being a solid game that has a more reduced scope and marks the franchise’s return to the Middle East, it’s hard not to also love its cheaper debut price, which is considerably less than the industry average (and now, it’s even cheaper thanks to Cyber Monday).
  • At multiple retailers, you can get a Sony DualSense wireless controller for PS5 and PC for $49.99 or a little less (was $69.99, and in some cases, special edition colors were $74.99).

  • Capcom’s Street Fighter 6 is $30 at Amazon, and $40.99 at Walmart (normally $59.99, also available for Xbox Series X).

  • Lies of P for PS5 is $49.99 (was $59.99, also available for Xbox Series X) at Best Buy. This memorable game breaks the mold of being just another Soulslike title by blending the tale of Pinocchio with horror elements. Best of all, it’s fun to play, and its unique weapon system is something that fans of the subgenre should check out.
  • Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is $30 at Target (was $69.99), and is $34.99 at Walmart and Best Buy. The sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order delivers more of that good stuff in terms of combat, story, and solid character development.
  • Elden Ring is $39.99 (was $59.99) for PS5 at Best Buy. From Software’s stunning 2022 open-world title remains a must-play, especially before its anticipated “Shadow of the Erdtree” expansion arrives. Note: The Xbox version of Elden Ring costs just $24.99 at GameStop. On PS4 (which allows a free update to the PS5 version if you have a disc-based console), it’s just $19.99 at GameStop.
  • Remnant 2 for PS5 is $39.99 (was $49.99) at Best Buy. This tough, yet rewarding third-person shooter allows single player as well as groups of up to 3 to trove loot-filled environments. This deal is live for the Xbox Series X version, too.
  • Samsung’s heatsink-equipped 990 Pro M.2 SSD for PS5 and PC is discounted. The 1 TB model is available from Best Buy for $89.99 (was $119.99).

Best Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday deals under $100

  • Have a Joy-Con or two suffering from drifting sticks that misbehave as you play? If you’re up for the task of replacing your joysticks, a pair of Gulikit Hall effect sticks cost $18.39 (was $22.99) for Prime members, and includes a kit full of screws and other tools to help you install them.

  • The CRKD Nitro Deck accessory that you can slide your Switch into is discounted at Amazon. The premium edition that includes a case that typically costs $89.99 is down to $69.99, while the standard version is $49.99 (was $59.99). We’ve got a review of it here, in case you were curious.
  • Genki’s Covert Dock for the Switch is $39.99 (was $75) at Amazon once you clip the coupon on the product page. This plug replicates the duties of the Switch dock, with its HDMI port, USB-C port, plus a USB-A port for accessories.
  • Many Switch accessories are discounted at Amazon, including this sweet Switch zip-up case designed with Link facing down a Lynel from Breath of the Wild for $10.99 (was $19.99).

  • Red Dead Redemption (digital and physical) is $34.99 (was $49.99) from the Nintendo Store. Other retailers aren’t offering this discount.


Best Xbox Cyber Monday deals under $100

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition for Xbox Series X is just $19.99 (was $39.99) at GameStop. If you haven’t yet played CD Projekt Red’s stunning open-world RPG that inspired the Netflix show, you simply must.
  • We didn’t have to wait long for a stellar deal on the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1. The compilation, which features multiple games and is available for every platform, costs $39.99 at Best Buy and Amazon (was $59.99).
  • Lords of the Fallen (2023) is $49.99 (was $69.99) for PS5 and Xbox Series X from Best Buy. This franchise reboot is, unsurprisingly, a Soulslike that borrows mechanics from From Software’s titles. However, it shines with weapon variety, not to mention its clever (and dangerous) Umbral realm that you’ll have to traverse in order to proceed.
  • Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core Reunion, the reimagined version of Square Enix’s tough-to-access PSP title, is $29.99 (was $49.99) at Best Buy and Amazon. It’s available for PS4, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. The best deal of all is at GameStop, where you can grab it for PlayStation or Xbox for $24.99.
  • Super Mega Baseball 4 is $19.99 (was $29.99) at Best Buy. If you like baseball even a little bit, don’t sleep on this title, even if you aren’t particularly sold on its exaggerated art style. SMB delivers baseball that’s easier to pick up and put down than the major sports titles.
  • The special edition Xbox wireless control in the gold shadow color scheme is $45 at Walmart (was $69.99). Several other colors are available for $44.99 at Amazon.

Best Steam / PC Cyber Monday deals under $100

  • Valve’s official dock for the Steam Deck now costs $79 ($10 off), and it works with both the Steam Deck LCD and OLED models. It’s unclear whether this is a permanent or temporary price cut, but either way, it’s a nice little promotion.
  • You can currently find the 1 TB model of the Corsair MP600 Mini on sale at Amazon for $79.99 (was $89.99). This 2230 M.2 SSD is perfectly suited to for the Steam Deck or the ROG Ally.
  • There’s an amazing deal happening on the 1 TB model of the SanDisk Ultra microSD card at Walmart, selling for $69.99 (was $129.99).
  • The Epic Games Store is hosting its Cyber Monday sale, and every user can claim a single use 33% off coupon that can be redeemed on most games over $14.99. That includes Alan Wake 2, which is fantastic if you haven’t tried it yet.
  • Steam’s Autumn Sale coincides with Cyber Monday this year, delivering hundreds — if not thousands — of discounts on PC games. Check that out here, or if you need some recommendations, we’ve got six of them for you here.
  • Newegg has some special discounts on Sony-published games that debuted on PS5 and PS4, but are now on PC. Digital titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man and Horizon Zero Dawn are a couple bucks cheaper here than on Steam when you use the offer codes mentioned on the page.
