Consoles, portables, and accessories


Even with the early store openings they're calling Gray Thursday, Black Friday is really only one shopping day, so it's understandable that you'd want to maximize your time. We've done the footwork for you so you can go straight to the cheapest place for whatever you might be looking for. We've sorted the list by the top gaming items for Black Friday 2013 so you can see who has what for the best price, with the main link taking you to the lowest price we've found.

Please note that these items will switch over to their lowest price on Black Friday, so you may have to revisit some of these links on Friday morning. As for the unlinked products, you'll have to wait in line at the store for those.

As always, if you find something we've missed, or you've found a better deal than we have, let us know.

Happy shopping!

PS4 -- $399

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

Xbox One -- $499

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA.

These will be hard to come by, but some retailers, including Walmart and GameStop, will be putting out stock on Black Friday. Equip your best armor!

Amazon  | Best Buy | Target  | Walmart | Kmart | Toys R Us  | GameStop

This is THE deal for Black Friday for videogames. Everyone has the same price, it seems.

Amazon $189 | Best Buy | Target $199 | GameStop $199 |

Amazon has the free shipping for you Prime members, but Best Buy may be the way to go with this bundle as they're throwing in Darksiders II and a code for Batman: Arkham City.

 

Xbox 360 Kinect bundle with Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventues -- $189

If you hate the good games in the previous bundle and want dorky Kinect games, get this one at Target.

Wii U Skylanders Swap Force bundle (8GB system) -- $299.99

GameStop $299

 

Pre-owned Wii -- $39.99

GameStop $39.99

If you still want the Wii, this thing is a better buy than the Wii Mini.

 

Portables:

Nintendo 2DS -- $99.99

Walmart | Kmart ($119.99) | GameStop ($129.99)

Don't even mess with the rest as Walmart has the new 2DS for the lowest price. This is one of the hottest items this year. Good luck getting one, though.

Go to Target if you need a 3DS XL and can't find the sweet Zelda or Luigi ones.

 

PlayStation Vita -- $169.99

Best Buy $169.99 | GameStop $179

You may or may not see the Best Buy price of $169 online, but it is that price at stores. Other retailers are at $179 if you can't find it at the Blue and Yellow.

 

PlayStation Vita with The Walking Dead plus one more game and accessory - $199

Walmart $199.

Walmart.com has a deal where you can get a Vita, The Walking Dead, another game, and an accessory, all for $199.

Accessories:

Ear Force X12 Headset -- $34.99

Best Buy | Target ($39.99)

 

8GB PlayStation Vita Memory Card -- $9.99

GameStop $9.99

Normally you'd laugh off an 8GB memory card, but when you consider how overpriced the Vita memory cards are, the $10 card at GameStop is a must-grab item.

 

PS3 Pulse Wireless Headset -- $79.99

GameStop $79.99

Memberships:

PlayStation Plus Membership -- $29.99

Amazon | Target | Walmart | GameStop | Toys R Us

Xbox Live Gold 3-Mont sub -- $9.99

Target | GameStop $14.99

You better be ready to fight for one of these. 

Televisions:
