Game consoles are always hot tickets on Black Friday, if only because they are rarely discounted at other times of the year. With the latest revisions, all at least a year old, there are some great deals.
We've linked the deals we can, but some are only available on Black Friday and some retail only stores. Most retailers also offer discounts on several games and accessories.
PlayStation 4 Deals
The PS4 is the outstanding winner of this console generation in terms of pure revenue. But it is also quite tedious, so there are some great packages for the beginner hardware. The deal to beat is a bundle with the revamped PS4 Slim and the outstanding open-world Spider-Man, which together are available for $ 200 at Best Buy, Target, Walmart and probably some other electronics-heavy retailers are. That's a $ 1

Xbox One Deals
The Xbox One is also a run thanks to its lack of genuine exclusives. But the good news is that if you hope you can buy a cheap one. Microsoft's Minecraft bundle with the popular game and an entry-level Xbox One S is offered for $ 100 at several retailers, but Target and Kohls are the ones you can buy from if you hope for maximum value.

Nintendo Switch Deals
The Switch is definitely the hottest console article thanks to a series of Nintendo exclusive titles such as Pokemon Let's Go and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate . However, discounts on the hardware itself and the various packages that Nintendo offers are hard to find. The company's concession to Black Friday is to submit a digital copy of the popular but dated Mario Kart 8 by Mario Kart 8 to most major retailers. Discounts on official Nintendo controllers are also hard to find, but can we suggest some 8BitDo pads or PowerA's new wireless Gamecube controller if you want to save some dough?

If you are not in the market for a full size home console, check out the Nintendo 2DS. The annual special edition of this entry-level hardware features Super Mario Maker ($ 40) and a corresponding color scheme. There are no discounts, but the specially enhanced portables tend to sell quickly. If you want to hope for the classic console craze, Kohls sells the Super NES Classic at a retail price with a gift certificate of $ 15.
