For those who are planning to make a move from PlayStation 4 to Xbox One, vice versa, or just looking to get their first console, Black Friday is a good time to make the switch.
Aside from plenty of video games on sale, gaming consoles are among the best sellers during this popular shopping day as they make good Christmas presents. When it comes to the much-hyped competition between Sony's and Microsoft's consoles, it has become apparent that one is slightly being preferred more than the other.

However, things may change this year as the retailer have already posted their deals that usually comprise of promos bundled with different video games.
