Black Friday gaming deals
We’re here, and we’re ready to SAVE YOU (and maybe us) some money this Black Friday. Welcome to our Black Friday 2023 gaming and tech deals live hub. This is a one-stop shop for all things that will save you cash going into this holiday season. We’ve already seen some pretty huge discounts on Xbox Series X|S consoles, PC gaming handhelds, and other sweet accessories.
To that end, we’re rounding up every truly worthwhile deal on controllers, games, headsets, mice, keyboards, and other big-ticket items like laptops and beyond. We’ll price-check against competitors for you, double-check that they’re actually real deals and not those pesky “fake” deals, and also sprinkle in some expert advice along the way.
Microsoft has been going quite hard and heavy on Xbox Series X|S console deals, we’ve seen the Xbox Series X shed up to $100 off its usual asking price, but competitors are closing in with other freebies to sweeten the deal. The competition is harsher than ever between the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and even outlets like Dell that you might not typically associate with PC gaming or Xbox deals. Yes, even Dell sells Xbox consoles these days, and the deals they have are often surprising.
Black Friday used to be one day only, but now it spans the entire month of November virtually. With everything going up in price, Black Friday and the following Cyber Monday are usually a great time to seal a deal on accessories that might’ve been a little too hard to justify. My team and I have tested dozens upon dozens of headsets, monitors, keyboards, controllers, and other accessories to help curate this list. We won’t recommend bogus products, and we won’t recommend deals that aren’t truly worth it. Everything here is heavily vetted and represents only the best gaming and tech accessory recommendations on offer this holiday season.
For those who don’t know me, hi! I’m Jez Corden, co-managing editor at Windows Central, with a particular focus on gaming and the Xbox ecosystem. My team and I have personally reviewed hundreds of gaming products, from games themselves to monitors to mice to keyboards and consoles and everything in between and beyond. Every product in this list is heavily vetted for quality and value, cross-referenced against other deals and retailers, to bring you the best savings this holiday season.

Black Friday is here, gamers.
This section of our live hub is a constantly updated feed of the latest relevant gaming deals from across every major retailer.
