The Last of Us Part II

Cyber Monday is over and most of these deals have expired, but we’ve rounded up the best deals still available here.

Let’s be honest: gaming is expensive, but the holiday season is a good time to take advantage of deals and sales and buy more than one game. Whether you are adding games to your personal library for your backlog, or you are planning to buy some games for a friend or family member, retailers like Amazon, GameStop, and Target have various discounts on titles.

If you are planning to buy a PS5 or an Xbox Series X / S during this time, please keep in mind that both are in high demand, limited supply, and are receiving irregular restocks at retailers. But if you are looking for games on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch, there are many deals available right now. If you own a next-gen console, several of these games on PS4 and Xbox One are either backward compatible or include a free upgrade.

If you are looking for more deals on tech and gadgets, check out our article where we highlight the best Cyber Monday deals worth your time and money.
