Gaming can be an expensive hobby, and waiting for certain titles and essential tech to go on sale can really test your patience. That restraint totally pays off with major sales, and this Black Friday for gamers is no different. The likes of Sony and Microsoft have debuted some immense deals on some of their most popular titles, including some pretty big names like The Last of Us and Far Cry. Consoles and gaming accessories have also been subject to the discount treatment, with retailers knocking them down to unbelievable prices.

While Microsoft and Sony tend to put their games on sale multiple times throughout the year, Black Friday is the one event where you'll see certain titles be blessed with a 70% discount, depending on the game's popularity and its year of release. Even some 2020 games are seeing a significant price drop already.

So whether you've been waiting for the right time (and price) to play a certain game or are finally ready to invest in a high-end gaming PC in addition to all the gadgets and gizmos, these are the Black Friday deals gamers will want to know about on the run-up to Christmas.
