When it comes to console discounts, the Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals have been the most prominent this year. Yes, the console has been around longer than the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but with near-constant demand for Nintendo’s nifty hybrid home and handheld console, we could easily have seen stock shortages or only minor discounts.
Instead, there have been some great bundles that have paired the console with some of the best Nintendo Switch games.
Microsoft has done a much better job of keeping its Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles available, not just this Black Friday weekend, but all year long. While we’ve seen the complete Xbox Series X disappear from some stores, it’s generally been available somewhere.
This week’s real MVP has been Xbox Series S, the digital-only sibling of Xbox Series X. Microsoft has discounted the console by $50, and we’ve seen that deal picked up on AmazonBest Buy (opens in a new tab)Y walmart (opens in a new tab) All weekend.
Let’s start with the best Cyber Monday PS5 deals we’ve seen so far. In the case of Sony’s console, we’re not just pointing out the (admittedly few) discounts available, but also mentioning which retailers have the hardware in stock. After all, it’s still surprisingly difficult to get hold of one of the machines.
