Black Friday shopping can be a bit daunting with all the deals to sort through out there. For video games, fans hoping to see deep discounts for the Xbox One or the PlayStation may be disappointed, but there are plenty of deals from Walmart, Gamestop, Amazon and more.
Black Friday Video Game Deals At Walmart:
Walmart is offering video game deals during its pre-Black Friday sale and on the big day. In the week before Nov. 29, Walmart is taking $11 off of most PS4 and Xbox One video games.
