We’re more than a week into November and Black Friday is inching closer. By last count, Walmart, Target, Best Buy and Newegg have all previewed some excellent Black Friday deals. Highlights include $100 off a PlayStation 4, a new Switch bundle and discounted GPUs. Hardware manufacturer Razer is getting the jump on the retail holiday, though, by running an early “Cyber Weekend” deal. Razer is offering $100 off a gaming laptop through today, Nov. 10, and up to 50 percent off peripherals through Nov. 19.

GameStop PowerUp Pro members can also get some early shopping out of the way with the retailer’s Pro Day sale happening this weekend. Most of the rewards come in the form of GameStop gift cards or Rewards Cash, but Pro members can also save up to $25 off some of the year’s best games like God of War, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Destiny 2: Forsaken.

Finally, a couple of PC game pre-orders are 25 percent off at Fanatical. Hitman 2, out Nov. 13, is on sale for $44.99 with code HM225POLYGON. Pre-orders for the strategy game Tropico 6 are also $44.99 with code T625POLYGON. The sixth entry in the Tropico series will be released on Jan. 24.

Sometimes the weekend is just too short: join us on Twitter for all the latest deals throughout the week.
