The Walmart Black Friday ad scan is broken into several parts as its Black Friday deals were rolled out in multiple phases. One of Walmart's best deals so far is this year's official Nintendo Switch bundle, but cheap 4K Blu-rays, routers, vinyl records, and work laptops are some of the other highlights of this ad scan. The main Walmart Black Friday sale is now live, kicking off on Wednesday, November 25 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET. If you're interested in either of the next-gen consoles, make sure to do all your Walmart shopping now so you can keep your cart clear for the console restock. They will probably sell out fast, so it's best to make sure you're prepared.

Because of all the sales on components, hardware, and accessories, you could build a gaming PC on the cheap and save even more money after the fact.
