Since Black Friday is arriving earlier this year, at some retail outlets, this would be a good time to see if you can't purchase that Xbox One or PlayStation 4 at reduced prices. This is what to expect from Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart, and Gamestop as far as the price you should pay for a new Xbox One and PS4.
Best Buy has their ad prominently displayed with Black Friday Doorbusters with doors opening on Thanksgiving Thursday at 5 PM, then close at Friday 1 AM, then re-open at 8 AM.
The Sony PlayStation 4 will cost $299, and it will come with 500 GB plus Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. The Xbox One is the same price at $299, and this is the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle. Controllers for the PS4 and Xbox One will both be $39.99, a deal of $20 off.
Another Xbox and PS4 deal include buying one hit game and get three months of Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus for $4.99. The hit games include Halo 5 and Rise of the Tomb Raider (only for Xbox One) and Fallout 4, Call of Duty Black Ops III, and Star Wars Battlefront (both available for the Xbox One and PS4).
Other Games will go on sale for $34.99 each including GTA V (Xbox One), Need for Speed (PS4), Assassin's Creed Syndicate (Xbox One), Metal Gear Sold V: The Phantom Pain (PS4), Forza Motorsport 6 (Xbox One), and Splatoon (Wii U). Some will go to $24.99 like Just Dance 2016 (Wii U), The Elder Scrolls Online (Xbox One), Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4), The Witcher III: Wild Hunt (Xbox One), Mad Max (PS4), and Mortal Kombat X (PS4). Games can get lower than that here.
