The PS4 release date is just two weeks before the biggest shopping day of the year and savvy gamers and parents looking for gifts may want to wait for PS4 Black Friday deals and Xbox One Black Friday deals on games and accessories before stocking up.
We don’t expect any major Xbox One or PS4 Black Friday deals on the console, at least not ones worth passing up on a pre-order. And with supplies tight, shoppers who need one without a pre-order should try to buy a PS4 at a midnight release on November 15th and the Xbox One release date on November 22nd.
Xbox One and PS4 games on the other hand might be worth waiting for Black Friday to buy. Retailers use Black Friday doorbusters to get shoppers in the door where they will undoubtedly spend a lot more money than just the one item that made them line up. These companies spend all year working on Black Friday ads, which undoubtedly leak before they appear in the newspaper and online right before Thanksgiving.
A new ad leak shows what could be a great Black Friday deal on PS4 and Xbox One games like Assassin’s Creed 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Fifa 2014, Madden 25 and others. BFAds.net posts a Toys R Us Black Friday ad which shows a Buy One Get One 40% Off deal for all video games. The listing shows popular game titles for the PS3 and Xbox 360, but with the upcoming releases right before Black Friday Toys R Us will likely have the Xbox One and PS4 games in stock.
The only limitation shown on the ad is that it does not apply to starter packs and that the discount is taken on the cheaper game. The Black Friday 2013 ad scan for Toys R Us looks official, but we won’t know for sure if this deal is set until a few days before Black Friday. Savvy shoppers will look or the deal on Toys R US online to avoid the annoying process of waiting in line on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
The ad says user scan buy these PS4 and Xbox One Black Friday deals on games online starting at 12:01 AM on Thanksgiving and the deals run through the weekend. Black Friday deals typically sell out very fast, so it is not a good idea to wait until Saturday to take advantage of these deals if you want cheap PS4 games or cheap Xbox One games.
