Street Fighter 5 Adds Christmas And Nostalgia DLC Costumes Next Week

Capcom has unveiled another batch of DLC costumes for Street Fighter V. A set of Christmas-themed outfits will be added to the game next week, just in time for the holiday season, and they'll be accompanied by a set of retro costumes that same day.
A total of 10 DLC costumes will be released next week, four of which are holiday-themed outfits for Kolin, Alex, Cammy, and Menat. Alex's new outfit has him don a Santa hat and coat, while both Cammy and Menat's costumes feature cat ears. You can check them out in the gallery below.
Alongside the holiday costumes, Capcom is also releasing a set nostalgia costumes for Karin, Birdie, Balrog, and Chun-Li. Karin sports the outfit she wore in Street Fighter Alpha 3; Balrog dons the attire he wore as a boss in Street Fighter II; and Birdie and Chun-Li's new outfits are inspired by the ones each character wore in Street Fighter Alpha. Chun-Li also gets an additional pair of combat costumes. You can see all of them below.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Black Friday 2017 Deals: All The Sales And Discounts

It's almost Black Friday. The annual shopping bonanza is coming up this Friday, November 25, and there are going to be quite a lot of video game deals to be had. One game marked down nicely is Ubisoft's newly released Assassin's Creed Origins on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The ambitious, open-world game set in Ancient Egypt launched on October 27 behind a mostly positive critical reception. Best Buy and Target will have the title for only $35 on Black Friday, while Toys R Us will offer the game for $40. Meanwhile, GameStop will offer a discount on the game + Season Pass, cutting it down to $70. The Ubisoft Store's Black Friday PC game sale is now underway, dropping the computer version to $40.
While you have to wait until Black Friday for those deals, the Xbox and PlayStation Stores are selling Origins right now for only $42. If you're OK without a disc and want to play right now, that's a nice option to have.

This Week’s Xbox One And 360 Deals With Gold Join Expanded Black Friday Sale

The Xbox Store Black Friday sale opens up to everyone today, but those aren't the only discounts you can find this week. On top of the Black Friday sale, the latest weekly Deals with Gold are also now available for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
As usual, most of the game discounts available this week are for Microsoft's newer console, with many of them exclusive to Xbox Live Gold members. The standard edition of Middle-earth: Shadow of War is available for $36/£33, while the game's Silver and Gold editions are on sale in the US for $48 and $70, respectively. Also on sale is NetherRealm's superhero fighting game Injustice 2; the base game costs $20/£22, while the Deluxe and Ultimate editions each run for $35/£35 and $45/£45.

Walmart Black Friday 2017 Ad Early Deals: All Of The Sony PS4, Nintendo Switch, 3DS, Xbox One Games On Sale

With Black Friday around the corner, Walmart has also released its full flyer for the big shopping day. There are a ton of game deals to take advantage of, particularly for those with a PS4 or Xbox One, with these offers becoming available on Thanksgiving evening (November 23) or Black Friday itself, depending on when your state allows stores to begin opening. Nintendo Switch and 3DS offers are also available, although PC gaming fans unfortunately won't find anything. Some of these deals are live now; more details on that below.
In terms of hardware, the offers are similar to what we've seen elsewhere. Switch is in stock, but at a regular price ($299), while there's no sign of Xbox One X or PS4 Pro. However, you can pick up a 1 TB PS4 for $199, or a 500 GB Xbox One S for $189. Neither of these systems comes with any bundled games, although Walmart will also take $50 off “any” Xbox One S, so you'll be able to pick from other bundles that have what you want. Walmart w..

Xbox One Black Friday 2017 Ad’s Early Game Deals: All Xbox Consoles, Games, Accessories On Sale

Black Friday 2017 is almost upon us, and it's time to start planning your shopping. Many retailers have released their ads well in advance of the big shopping day, giving us an early look at the deals we'll soon be able to take advantage of. Xbox One has no shortage of deals, both on hardware and games. Below, we've rounded up a comprehensive list of all the deals announced so far. We'll continue to update this post as Black Friday gets closer and we hear about more sales; meanwhile, some deals are already live.
Whereas things are fairly simple for those in the market for a cheap PS4, you'll have many more options to consider when purchasing an Xbox One. At the cheap end, you'll be able to pick up a basic Xbox One S 500 GB with no bundled games for about $190 at a number of retailers, ranging from Walmart to Toys R Us. However, there are some key differences–a Target doorbuster deal will throw in a $25 gift card for $190, while buying one at Kohl's w..

Nintendo 3DS Black Friday 2017 Ad Deals: All The 3DS And 2DS Hardware And Games On Sale

Black Friday 2017 is approaching, and while much of the attention paid to Nintendo involves the Switch, 3DS continues to truck along. Its most significant game releases of the fall, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, recently launched, and although neither of those will be on sale (at least that we know of), there will still be a number of deals for both prospective and existing 3DS owners.
On the hardware side, things are fairly limited. GameStop will sell the basic Nintendo 3DS for $100 and the New Nintendo 3DS XL (which features slightly more powerful hardware that can play certain games the non-New 3DS systems cannot) for $140. Other than that, there's very little in the way of actual deals that we know of at this point. However, the recently announced limited-edition green Zelda 2DS bundle launches on Black Friday at several retailers. This comes with a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D pre-loaded on the system for $80. Among the stores whose ads reveal they&#039..

Target Black Friday 2017 Ad Deals: All Sony PS4, Switch, Xbox One, 3DS Games On Sale

Black Friday is right around the corner, and like many other retailers, Target has released its ad well in advance to let people plan ahead. There are quite a few game deals to be had in its sales circular, although the heavy focus is on PS4 and Xbox One; there's nothing for PC gaming fans to take advantage of, and seemingly little for those on Nintendo platforms.
Nintendo Switch is only featured on the back page, where it's listed at its regular price of $300. There's no sign of PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, although the older iterations of those consoles will be on sale. You can pick up a 1 TB PS4 for $200, while a 500 GB Xbox One S drops to $190 with a bonus $25 Target gift card. Target's ad lists both of these console deals as doorbusters, a term it liberally uses throughout–it even applies to the special green Zelda 2DS. We've designated doorbuster deals as such in the lists below; it's unclear how limited stock will be, but some of these offers may run out..

Watch Destiny 2: Curse Of Osiris DLC Livestream Here Today

Today, Bungie is set to host the second of three livestreams dedicated to Destiny 2's upcoming Curse of Osiris DLC expansion pack. Whereas the first focused on the new location, story, and characters, this second stream will deal with new activities that you'll be able to take part in on Mercury. The stream is scheduled to take place at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 7 PM GMT (6 AM AET on Wednesday, November 22), and you can watch it through the stream below.
As with the first one, we don't know many specifics about what will be shown. Bungie says it'll offer a look at activities on Mercury, including those in the Infinite Forest, which is a key area we got a look at during the initial reveal and the first livestream. The key tease involves the reveal of a new Public Event, which is the “biggest [Bungie has] ever delivered in Destiny.” While we'd assume it involves the Vex, given that they are central to Curse of Osiris's story, we do know that the Cabal are also pr..

PS4 Black Friday 2017 Early Deal Gets You PS Plus Membership For Cheap Right Now

Although there were few deals on PlayStation Plus memberships included in the early Black Friday ads that were released, this has turned out to be a good week to subscribe or extend your membership. Those interested in a year of PS Plus can currently pick it up at a nice discount–and you don't even have to wait for Black Friday to actually begin.
A number of the Black Friday offers for PlayStation 4 games, consoles, and accessories have gone live early. In addition to being able to pick up a PS4 for $200 right now, you can purchase a 12-month PS Plus membership for $40 (or £37.50 in the UK). That's $20 less than the usual price, and as cheap as you can ever expect to see it go at most retailers. This price is available right now at Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop. All three stores treat this as a “download,” meaning you won't have to pick anything up or wait for a physical card to be mailed to you; a redemption code will simply be emailed to you.
That's good news, t..

Xbox Live Black Friday 2017 Store’s Early Deals: All Xbox One Games On Sale Right Now

Black Friday 2017 is still a few days away, but Microsoft has kicked off the Xbox Store's big annual sale. There is a huge number of games discounted as part of it, and following an Xbox Live Gold-only period, everyone now has access to the sale. Provided you're interested in digital games, you'll probably be able to find something you're interested in. [Update: The Xbox Store's Black Friday sale is now open to everyone, and are joined by some additional offers through the usual Deals With Gold. Those include a notable omission from the games below–Middle-earth: Shadow of War is $36, but only for Xbox Live Gold members.]
As you'd expect, the bulk of the offers are available on Xbox One, where you'll find hundreds of games discounted. There's also a ton of DLC on sale, but for our comprehensive list, we've focused on games, special editions, bundles, and season passes, rather than individual DLC packs. In many cases, these prices aren't..
