Black Friday is fast approaching with TV, PC gaming, and entertainment tech deals popping up everywhere you look, and those who have been eagerly awaiting sales for Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation can finally start shopping as well. 

Most notably, Nintendo has launched its Black Friday bundle today, and shoppers can find the Nintendo Switch with red and blue Joy-Cons, a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a three-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online for just $299. It would typically cost $368 to have all three, making the bundle a 19 percent discount and the only time all year when Nintendo buyers can find the Switch remotely marked down. 

Xbox and PlayStation fans finally have good news, too: Walmart has announced restock times for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S happening this week ahead of Black Friday. Read on for all you need to know about scoring a Nintendo Switch, a PS5, and an Xbox Series X or S — plus the 29 best deals on popular video games below.
