Greetings, Arsians! Black Friday is nearly here, but many retailers and device makers have set some of their most notable holiday discounts live over the last couple of days. To help you see if you can get some holiday shopping done ahead of the rush later this week, the Dealmaster has rounded up some favorites from this latest batch of early Black Friday tech deals.
Of particular note today are savings on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hardware. Sony has the PS4 Pro down to $300 and a PS4 Slim bundle that includes God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition, and The Last of Us: Remastered available for $200. Microsoft, meanwhile, now has Xbox One X bundles for $350, Xbox One S bundles for $200, and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition bundles for $150. It's worth remembering that both companies will have new consoles by this time next year, but this is as low as we typically see any of these consoles. There are also tons more deals on both consoles' respective games, controllers, and subscription services if you don't need a whole new system. (The Nintendo Switch, on the other hand, doesn't have any major sales live just yet.)
Elsewhere, Amazon has kicked off Black Friday discounts for a number of its own Fire tablets and Fire TV media streamers, most of which are down to the same prices they had on Prime Day. These deals include the Fire TV Stick 4K for $25, the 1080p Fire TV Stick for $20, the Fire HD 8 tablet for $50, and the latest Kindle Paperwhite for $85, among others.
