For $300, you get the new Nintendo Switch with improved battery life, a digital download of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and three months of Nintendo Switch Online. The latter grants you access to libraries of free Switch games, classic NES and SNES titles, and online multiplayer. This bundle will sell out fast, so you'll want to jump on it as fast as you can.
Nintendo Switch with four Mario glasses for $300
If the Mario Kart Switch bundle sells out, GameStop has another Black Friday bundle. The Nintendo Switch is bundled with four Mario glasses for the console's regular price of $300. This would make an excellent gift for Mario fans, as the glasses feature Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi, and Yoshi--and of course, the Switch is a fantastic console with a ton of great Mario games.
Three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $20 | Nov. 27 only (in-store)
Game Pass Ultimate grants players access to a huge library of games across four Xbox console generations (including Xbox Series X) and PC. It also includes a Gold membership for online multiplayer and free monthly games as well as what's included in the basic tier of EA Access. All first-party Microsoft games are available on the service on their release date. $20 is a fantastic price for three months of the service, especially since you can stack subscriptions to automatically extend your time--though new subscribers should claim their first month for $1 before redeeming any codes. This promotion is seemingly in-store only, although Game Pass Ultimate Black Friday deals are available online elsewhere.
12 months of PlayStation Plus for $45 (was $60)
With the PS5, PlayStation Plus has become an even more valuable service. In addition to free monthly games and online multiplayer access, subscribers can also download and play a big collection of the PS4's best titles. The Plus Collection is exclusive to PS5 owners, however. During Black Friday 2020, you can get a year of PlayStation Plus for only $45 at GameStop. This isn't your cheapest option, however--PS Plus deals elsewhere will get you a year-long membership for closer to $30.
Save $10 on Xbox wireless controllers
If you're looking to pick up the new Xbox wireless controller that released alongside the Xbox Series X and S, then now's your chance. GameStop is discounting all first-party Xbox controllers by $10 for Black Friday 2020. The new controller also works on Xbox One consoles. Its share button allows you to more easily take videos and screenshots.
Astro A40 TR gaming headset for $120 (was $150)
Astro makes some of the best gaming headsets out there, and during Black Friday 2020, GameStop is selling the Astro A40 TR gaming headset for $120, down from its regular price of $150. The headset connects via the 3.5mm jack on PlayStation and Xbox controllers.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla for $48 (was $60)
Assassin's Creed Valhalla just released on November 10, yet GameStop is already planning to discount it for Black Friday 2020. You can pick it up for $48, down from its regular price of $60. This is a doorbuster deal, and we expect it may sell out fast, as this is the first discount we've seen for Valhalla. The game also comes with a free next-gen upgrade on the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Watch Dogs: Legion for $33 (was $60)
Watch Dogs: Legion is a great open-world action game, where hacking is just as useful as a gun. If you don't have the new consoles yet, you can play it on PS4 or Xbox One and then upgrade for free to the PS5 or Xbox Series X/S version when you're ready.
Ghost of Tsushima for $40 (was $60)

Splatoon 2 for $27 (was $60)
One of the Switch's best multiplayer experiences, Splatoon 2 is a shooter that tasks players with covering the map with their team's paint.

It's a great time, and just in time for the holidays, Splatoon 2 is discounted to $27 during Black Friday 2020.
Mario Tennis Aces for $27 (was $60)
