By Peter Brown on
Your one-stop game shop this Black Friday?
Black Friday 2018 may be over, but Cyber Monday has swooped in to take its place with an assortment of amazing deals. You can find markdowns at a lot of stores, like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy, as well as digital stores like PSN, Xbox Live, and the Switch Eshop. While an obvious choice, you'll find that there's a great selection of hardware and software for sale at GameStop, which has some terrific deals worth considering.
The deals on the slides ahead are all for new products, but we're talking about GameStop here, so let's quickly see what deals it has in store for its pre-owned inventory. There are plenty of great games in used condition for under $10, including: Batman: Arkham Knight ($7), Fallout 4 ($7), Final Fantasy XV on PS4 ($7), Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on Xbox One ($5), Titanfall 2 ($7), and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End ($5).
If you're interested in previous generation and handheld game deals, you can take advantage of the site's buy-two-get-one-free deal on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, 3DS, and PS Vita games.
There's some subscription deals too. You can get a PlayStation Plus subscription for $40, as well as save $10 on both 3-month and 6-month subscriptions to Xbox Live Gold.
$200 Console Bundles ($100 off!)
If you're in the market for a new console and don't feel that you need the added power of a PlayStation 4 Pro or an Xbox One X, GameStop has a good deal for interested PS4 Slim and Xbox One shoppers.
One of the best-received games this year was Marvel's Spider-Man. It's also exclusive to Sony's console, and is part of GameStop's $200 PlayStation 4 Slim bundle on Black Friday.
If you're after an Xbox One, you can pick up the S model with a copy of Minecraft, also for $200.
$50 - Gift Card With Any Xbox One, PS4, or Switch Purchase (Excluding $200 Bundles)
This deal is pretty straightforward, but be sure to read the fine print! For everyone who purchases an Xbox One, PS4, or Switch during Cyber Monday, except for the bundles on the previous slide, they will receive a $50 GameStop gift card that can be applied to future purchases.
$100 Off PSVR Bundles
Virtual-reality gaming is still a budding market, but if you're ready to take the plunge and are considering the PlayStation VR lineup, Cyber Monday may be the best time to pick up a PSVR headset. GameStop will be discounting $100 off of every new PSVR headset purchase, including the bundle with Superhot VR, Creed: Rise To Glory, and two PS Move controllers (down to $250).

$39 DualShock 4 Controllers (Usually $65)
Controllers are a fact of console-gaming life, and they just seem to get more and more expensive with each passing generation. So when you get the chance to pick up the DualShock 4 you've needed for a while for only $39, you get your butt out there and you buy that fancy controller!

$30 - Hitman 2
Having only launched a couple weeks ago, GameStop is offering a substantial deal for IO Interactive's Hitman 2. This stealth-action game puts you in the role of Agent 47, once again working to infiltrate security systems and assassinate a bevy of questionable targets swiftly and discreetly.

$38 - Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
Call of Duty is a hot commodity every year. Some people come for the single-player campaign, but Black Ops 4 is a purely multiplayer experience. In place of the over-the-top story mode--and adjacent to the traditional PvP and Zombies multiplayer modes--a new battle royale competition has been introduced. It's not surprising to see that happen, but it is reassuring to see how smoothly Call of Duty's tried-and-true DNA translated to the new style of play. At $38, GameStop is one of the cheapest places to buy the game.
$40 - Fallout 76
Well, at this point, it looks like GameStop will be the only store selling Fallout 76 at a discount--and a hefty one at that. The game just came out, but you can already buy it later this week for only $40--$20 off retail. And if you're after the Tricentennial Edition, that is also discounted by $20, down to $60.

$27 - Sports Games!
27 is an oddly specific number, but throw a dollar sign in front of it and that's what you can expect to see on the price tag of some of this year's biggest sports titles at GameStop during Cyber Monday. FIFA 19, Madden 19, NBA 2K19, and WWE 2K19 will all be on sale for $27 while supplies last.
$10 - Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition
There's never been a game quite like Horizon Zero Dawn, and to be able to pick it up with all of its DLC for only $10 is an awesome opportunity. With robotic dinosaurs and other types of monstrous creatures roaming a world on the verge of post-apocalyptic recovery, you have little more than primitive weapons, quick wits, and modest acrobatics with which to fight back. The odds will feel stacked against you, but that only makes victory over the vicious alloy beasts all the sweeter. If you were swept up with anticipation for Breath of the Wild and somehow missed Horizon Zero Dawn back then, consider giving it a shot now that its being sold at such a ridiculously low price.

$17 - God Of War
While we're recommending PlayStation 4 exclusives on sale at GameStop this Cyber Monday, this year's excellent God of War reboot will be marked down to $17--another deal worth considering. Santa Monica Studios took an aging series and revitalized it with a fresh spin on the lead character Kratos, and a new setting and set of gods to contend with. Beyond being a solid reboot, however, it's simply a remarkable game in general. The action is hard-hitting, sights from picturesque to grotesque are rendered in great detail, and the relationship between a father and son that forms the backbone of the moment-to-moment narrative successfully draws you into the plight that lies ahead of our heroes.

$27 - Shadow of the Tomb Raider
The thrilling finale of the Tomb Raider reboot is marked down to $27 this Cyber Monday. Shadow of the Tomb Raider sees Lara Croft try to stop an apocalypse that she accidentally triggered. It's an exciting adventure well worth playing for fans of the first two games.

$27 - Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Assassin's Creed Odyssey, the latest entry of the long-running Assassin's Creed franchise, is also marked down to a reasonable $27. Set in Ancient Greece, you play as a Greek mercenary on a journey to find their lost family. Along the way you'll work with some of history's most notable figures to unravel a conspiracy from a shadowy organization that threatens all of Greece.
