After weeks of retailers releasing Black Friday ads to build anticipation for the event, GameStop has finally revealed its hand. With less than a week until Black Friday sales officially begin, GameStop has released a flyer for its “early deals,” which will be available for a full week.
Nintendo Switch offers are noticeably missing from GameStop’s first round of Black Friday deals. While we do expect to see Switch deals at GameStop during Black Friday, don’t anticipate any significant discounts on the new improved Switch model or the Switch Lite. Instead, most retailers are offering Nintendo’s official Black Friday 2019 bundle: the launch-model Switch (without improved battery life) with a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $300. According to Nintendo, GameStop should also have some first-party Switch games for $40 each and discounts on Switch accessories like the Poke Ball Plus.
Keep in mind GameStop has more deals going live next Wednesday, plus limited-time deals that will likely launch on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We probably won’t know what those later deals are until they go live, but in the meantime, you’ll have access to some of GameStop’s best console deals starting this Sunday, November 24. Check out GameStop’s full Black Friday schedule below, and read on for the best Black Friday deals we know about so far.

Consoles and accessories
PS4 Slim holiday bundle | $200 (
This official PlayStation bundle includes three excellent, PS4-exclusive games–God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition, and The Last of Us Remastered–along with the base console for $200, an excellent deal for anyone buying a PS4 for the first time.
PS4 Pro Glacier White | $300 (
The powerful PS4 Pro is on sale for an excellent price during Black Friday, selling for $300 rather than $400. GameStop’s offer includes the stunning Glacier White model, which comes with a matching controller.
DualShock 4 Wireless Controllers (various colors) | $39 each (
PS4 controllers will be $39 each at GameStop during Black Friday, the same price as at Walmart. Other stores will have them for $40 during Black Friday week, but colors available may vary between retailers. GameStop’s flyer includes the new Fall 2019 colors shown above, which normally go for $65 each.
PlayStation Plus 12-month membership | $45 (
The official PlayStation Black Friday offer for PS Plus is $45 for a yearly membership. That’s not quite as low as we’d hoped, but if you need to renew your membership (remember PS Plus subscriptions do stack), this is still a nice deal to snag.
PlayStation VR Mega Pack | $200 (
This is the best PSVR deal we’ve seen in a long time. For $200, you’ll get the PSVR headset and PlayStation Camera along with five of the system’s best games.
PlayStation VR bundle with Blood & Truth, Everybody’s Golf VR | $250 (
This bundle is slightly pricier than other PSVR bundles during Black Friday, but that’s because it comes with two PlayStation Move motion controllers (which can cost as much as $100 a pack).
Fortnite Neo Versa Bundle With PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset | $70 (
The discount on this PlayStation Gold wireless headset isn’t exceptional on its own, but if you’re a Fortnite fan, the included Neo Versa bundle is a nice perk that comes with the Epic Neo Versa Outfit, Epic Neo Phrenzy Back Bling, and 2,000 V-Bucks.
Xbox One S bundle with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Deluxe Edition | $200 (
Get the newest Star Wars adventure on Xbox One with this Xbox One S bundle for only $200, available at many retailers including GameStop.
Xbox One X special-edition bundle with NBA 2K20 | $350 (
Quite a few Xbox One X bundles will be on sale for Black Friday, but this GameStop-exclusive, special-edition Xbox One X with NBA 2K20 has to be the prettiest with its paint splash design.
Xbox One S All-Digital Edition | $150 (
Not a fan of buying physical games? Then the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition was made for you, but please be aware there’s no disc drive, removing the option entirely to play physical games or Blu-ray discs. The bundle comes with three games: Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, and bonus content for Fortnite: Battle Royale–2,000 V-Bucks and the Legendary Rogue Spider Knight outfit. At just $150, the All-Digital Edition is a much more appealing offer for primarily digital gamers.
Xbox Wireless Controllers (various colors) | $10 off
Multiple Xbox controllers will be on sale for $10 off during Black Friday, including the special-edition Gears 5 controller for $65 (previously $75) and other colors for $60 (previously $70 each). It’s worth noting Microsoft’s official Black Friday sale is advertising Xbox controllers for “up to $20 off,” so you may want to compare prices before grabbing one of these from GameStop.
In-store deal: Get 25% everything you can stuff in this bag
This is fairly self-explanatory, but from November 24-27, GameStop stores will let you fill a bag with as many collectibles and apparel as you can and get 25% off the entire bag (which you have to buy on its own for $5). Games and hardware are excluded as well as clearance items.
