There’s no better time to take the plunge on a new game console or finally pick up a game you’ve been reading and watching YouTube videos about for months than Cyber Monday. Typically, every major retailer, as well as the game publishers and console makers, has a handful of solid deals on hardware, software, and accessories.
The Sony PlayStation 4 Slim bundle from Black Friday appears to have been popular, as it’s sold out mostly everywhere, though the whole Xbox consoles lineup, and a number of the year’s biggest games are still easy to find on discount — including Hitman 2, which is $29 at Amazon and GameStop.
The current console generation’s life cycle is projected to come to a close around 2020, which makes this year’s deals especially attractive, considering the devices likely won’t see another equally dramatic price drop until the formal announcement of Microsoft and Sony’s new hardware, which are likely to be shown off around 2020 or 2021. Unfortunately, the Nintendo Switch remains full price at $299, save one Best Buy bundle and one eBay one, and we can expect that to hold through the holidays with the launch of the new Super Smash Bros. Thankfully, you can put any money you may have been saving for a Switch toward a fair number of PS4 or Xbox games.
