It's that time of year, yet again, where American celebrations following Thanksgiving will result in many stores cutting the prices of tech and gaming products for Black Friday. That means games, consoles, and more are likely to be going cheap for the next week, and so we're going to be collecting all of the best deals we can find.
Some have limited availability, and these are all the UK-specific deals - those outside the UK will, typically, be seeing different deals over the Black Friday period. We're putting together a list of all the gaming deals we think are noteworthy, updating whenever we hear something new.
Black Friday products
Xbox One S 500GB with Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels, Overwatch GOTY, Now TV 2 month subscription
This is one of the cheapest deals we've seen around, and considering the popularity of Overwatch to this day, probably one of the best value. Overwatch has become a cultural phenomenon since releasing, and adding on Forza Horizon 3 is just sweetening the deal.
Xbox One S 500GB Console with Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels & either Star Wars Battlefront 2, Call of Duty: WW2, Destiny 2, FIFA 18 or Forza Motorsport 7 bundle
We're expecting a few good Xbox One S bundles to come out over the Black Friday period, and this is a very strong start for them. At under £200 and with the selection of games you can get with it, it's a brilliantly flexible little bundle. Star Wars Battlefront 2, Call of Duty: WW2, and Destiny 2 are all first person shooters with popular multiplayer while FIFA 18 is a football game, and Forza Motorsport 7 is a realistic racing game. You do, though, have to scroll down to redeem this with the added game.
Xbox One S 500GB Console with Rocket League, Fallout 4, Doom, 3 months of Xbox Live Gold
Another cheap and valuable bundle here, this is great if you've missed out on the last couple years of games. Fallout 4 and Doom are getting on by video game standards, but are still current-generation greats, and are a great way to get introduced to a brand new console.
Xbox One X and Now TV 2 month subscription
There aren't many Xbox One X deals going round, simply because the console is so new. So as there are no huge bundles, this is probably the best deal you'll get on an Xbox One X in 2017, just because of the added Now TV subscription.

Sony PlayStation 4 Slim 500GB with Call of Duty: WW2 or Star Wars Battlefront 2, Gran Turismo Sport, Hidden Agenda, and Now TV 2 month subscription
So far, this is the best PS4 deal we can find - both Call of Duty: WW2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2 can scratch a first-person shooter itch (although Call of Duty: WW2 has been more well-received by fans and critics alike), Gran Turismo Sport is a brilliant racing simulation game, Hidden Agenda is a perfect way to show off the console as a party game, and a Now TV subscription will enable some of the PS4's streaming capabilities. We'll update if we find anything better, but right now, this is it.
Sony PlayStation 4 Slim 500GB with FIFA 18 and Gran Turismo Sport
To many, the PS4 is a machine for FIFA games most of the time. At a price that rivals that of its competitor, the Xbox One, this is a great deal if FIFA 18 is your bag, and adding in Gran Turismo Sport, a realistic racing game which was only released recently makes it even sweeter. There's also a 1TB variant with more storage space for just £30 more.
Sony PlayStation 4 Pro with FIFA 18 and Call of Duty: WW2
This deal isn't as obvious as others, as it comes up separately in searches and you've got to do a little digging into offers to find it. It is, though, almost certainly one of the best ways to make sure you've got two of the most popular multiplayer games from 2017 on your PS4 Pro. To see this offer with Call of Duty: WW2, just click the "View special offers" bundle to see Call of Duty: WW2 included. If you don't do that, it won't come with Call of Duty: WW2, but it still costs £299.99!
Sony PlayStation 4 Pro with Gran Turismo Sport, Fallout 4, Call of Duty: WW2
In case you want two slightly less popular but also good games instead of FIFA 18, but for the same overall price, this bundle from Currys PC World is top-notch. Gran Turismo Sport (often called GT Sport) is a realistic racing simulator, Fallout 4 is a role playing game positing the idea of what if nukes were dropped on America during the 1950s, and Call of Duty: WW2 is a first-person shooter set during WW2. There's an array of games here, for a variety of tastes.
PlayStation VR headset with PlayStation Camera, VR Worlds, and Gran Turismo Sport
In case you've wanted to get to grips with virtual reality, this is a very strong starting point. You need to have a PS4 or PS4 Pro to go along with it, but VR Worlds and Gran Turismo Sport are great ways to introduce someone to the concept. The former is a series of games in a VR setting, while Gran Turismo Sport puts you in the driving seat, somewhat literally, in VR. You can also add on Skyrim, a fantasy RPG about exploring a land overrun by dragons, for £20 more.
PlayStation Plus 12-month subscription
To access online multiplayer on a PlayStation console, you have to be subscribed to PlayStation Plus. This deal makes that just a little less hard on the wallet, and in return you'll get access to free games over the next year, as PlayStation Plus subscribers get free games for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita as long as they're subscribed. They're often major, AAA titles, too, further sweetening that deal.

PlayStation Store games up to 60 per cent off
On the PlayStation store, games are having their prices cut. For those subscribed to PS+, the deals have already started, while those without have to wait until November 23. GT Sport is cut to £24.99, Need for Speed Payback is 40% off just over week after release, and Grand Theft Auto V is down to £21.99.
Overwatch - Game of the Year Edition
One of the most popular first-person shooters from the past few years is also up for sale, down to £24.99. Overwatch itself is a multiplayer shooter where teams fight off against each other as absurd characters, like a space gorilla or giant robot. It's been one of the most well-received shooters as of late, not least because of the more friendly bright colours and lack of gore.
