Black Friday officially arrives in a few days, but many of the noteworthy deals we expect to see have already begun. We have a big roundup of the best early Black Friday deals we can find more generally, but today we wanted to break out a separate roundup for video game discounts, since a metric ton of them have gone live across several retailers this week.

Major retailers like Target, Best Buy, and Walmart have already kicked off their official sales, as have the digital gaming storefronts for Xbox and PlayStation, with others like Amazon price-matching many of the better offers. We’ve pored over as many so-called deals as we can find from all of them and have listed the genuine discounts we like below, spotlighting a few particularly notable offers along the way.

Before you dig in, note that the sales haven’t made in-demand hardware like the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch OLED, or Nvidia’s newer RTX GPUs any easier to buy, though the lower-power Xbox Series S does look like it’s available in some capacity. We aren’t seeing notable discounts on brandnew big-name games like Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining PearlMario Party SuperstarsForza Horizon 5, and Battlefield 2042, either, though several well-reviewed games released earlier this year are discounted.
