PS4 Black Friday 2017 Ad Game Deals: All Early Sony PlayStation 4 Consoles, Games, And Accessories On Sale

With Black Friday 2017 right around the corner, we've gotten a look at the deals many retailers will offer this year. That includes a wide variety for Sony's PlayStation 4–and virtually none for its older platforms, PS3 and Vita. We've rounded up all of the deals for those with a PS4 (or those looking to purchase one) below, and we'll continue to update this as Black Friday draws nearer and we learn about more.
On the console side, things are very simple (at least at this point). Rather than bundling the system with a variety of games, you'll be able to pick up the standard, 1 TB PS4 Slim for about $200 at a number of retailers. (Walmart will offer it for $199, just because it can.) The best option might be at Kohl's, which is giving away $15 Kohl's Cash with every $50 you spend. It will also be selling the PS4 for $200, letting you earn $60 in what are effectively limited-time gift cards; this Kohl's Cash has to be used between November 26 and ..

As always, Black Friday is shaping up to have a ton of deals–many of them worthwhile. Whether you're shopping for games, consoles, TVs, movies, or any number of other things, there's a lot to keep track of. Different retailers have their own sets of deals starting at different times and with varying bonuses–you have to do a lot of homework to keep things straight.
We've been keeping track of Black Friday deals in the lead up to the big day, breaking things down into retailer- and platform-specific stories. Below, you'll find a complete roundup of all of our big Black Friday coverage and some highlights from each.

Best Buy Black Friday 2017 Game Deals: All Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4, PC, 3DS Sale Items

We're days away from Black Friday 2017, and numerous stores have revealed the deals they'll have on offer this year. That includes Best Buy, which actually has an early, pre-Black Friday sale going on right now (more details below). But it's Thanksgiving evening and the day after where the full selection of deals will be available, and we've rounded up everything you can expect to see discounted across PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and 3DS–and even a single, solitary deal for those looking for something new to play on Wii U and Wii.
In a trend we're seeing at a number of retailers, there isn't a wide array of hardware deals. Switch will be in stock but at its regular price of $300. Neither the PS4 Pro nor Xbox One X will be on sale, with the sale prices instead coming on the older hardware. A 1 TB PS4 can be had for $200, but that doesn't include any free games. On the Microsoft side, you can get the Madden 18 Xbox One S 500 GB bundle for $230, and as a..

Nintendo Switch Black Friday 2017 Early Ad Deals: Every Console, Game, And Accessory On Sale

Black Friday 2017 is nearly upon us, and that means plenty of game deals are on the horizon. While more limited than those available for PS4 or Xbox One, that includes offers for Nintendo Switch games, as well as an opportunity to pick up the hardware itself–albeit without any kind of discount. Some discounts are even live early, ahead of Black Friday.
Nintendo Switch itself appears in a variety of the Black Friday ads we've gotten a look at so far, but this is seemingly only intended to signal that it will be in stock. All of them–GameStop, Best Buy, and Target–list it for its usual $300 price (except for Walmart, which sells it for $299). Likewise, we've unfortunately seen no discounts on Joy-Cons or the Switch Pro Controller, although Walmart will have third-party wired controllers for $17. Other accessories on sale include a PowerA Joy-Con Charging Station for $20 at Best Buy, and Mario- and Zelda-themed controller chargers (for both Joy-Cons and Pro Controllers) for $..

Nintendo Switch No Longer Getting Resident Evil Revelations’ Physical Release In Europe

Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2 are coming to Nintendo Switch on November 28, but it's only now we're learning the games will not be appearing on store shelves in Europe. Instead, the region will only receive the titles via the Eshop, with their physical versions remaining exclusive to North America.
Publisher Capcom indicated to GameSpot that releasing a boxed version of the games in Europe would not be viable. “Capcom has to take various factors into account when deciding what format to deliver our titles to our fans,” reads a statement from the publisher. “These can include but are not limited to overall production costs, manufacturing times, distribution, and first party regulations. In the case of Resident Evil Revelations, we've found that unfortunately it's not viable for Capcom Europe to create a physical version of the title on Nintendo Switch for our territories, however we will be making this available as a digital release.”

Assassin’s Creed Origins Black Friday 2017 Ad 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.
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.

GameSpot's Assassin's Creed: Origins review scored the game a 7/10. Reviewer Alessandro Fillari said the game reaches new heights in its Egypt setting, but unfortunately, t..

Pokemon Go Launches New Event To Catch Previously Region-Exclusive Pokemon

Pokemon Go's latest event, titled the Global Catch Challenge, is now live worldwide. It tasks players with catching huge numbers of Pokemon to earn rewards for everyone. The top level prize will see Farfetch'd being made available to catch around the world after previously being exclusive to Japan. Japanese players, meanwhile, will receive the previously Australia-exclusive Kangaskhan.
Those rewards will unlock at Gold level–after 3 billion Pokemon are caught around the world. Bronze level (500 million monsters caught) has already been reached, unlocking double XP and 6-hour lures. If you want to join and help the community get to 3 billion catches, you'd better be swift: the event ends on Sunday, November 26.
Developer Niantic continues to support Pokemon Go, though it does have at least one more project in the pipeline. The company confirmed last week that it's making a new title called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The developer did say, however, that making that..
