Black Friday comes but once a year, and gamers will be able to take advantage of game-focused sales offered by a variety of retailers.

WalMart Black Friday Savings Wal Mart, Best Buy and Target reveal game centered Black Friday sales

Wal-Mart, Target and Best Buy have revealed their respective Black Friday sales ads that offer savings on consoles and games. While next-gen is all but upon us, these three retailers don’t include any PS4 or Xbox One deals in their sales and instead stick to current-gen hardware and titles.

Additionally many of retailers start the following Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving rather than the day after, so be sure to scan them and scope out the deals and make your plans beforehand.

The console deals include a 4GB Xbox 360 for $100, a PS3 250GB bundled with The Last of Us and Batman: Arkham Origins for $199. As far as game deals we have some pretty awesome price slashes on newly released current-gen titles like Call of Duty: Ghosts for $40 and award-winning yesteryear classes like Tomb Raider and Far Cry 3 for a pittance of $15.

Target will be offering a nice deal on a Nintendo 3DS XL for $150, but on average they offer many of the same savings as the others. For gamers who opt in for Nintendo’s new 2DS handheld, Wal-Mart has them for $99–but of course remember that the 2DS doesn’t have the clamshell closing mechanism and is more like a tablet that can’t easily drop in your pocket.
