This has been an awesome year for gaming. Heavy hitters like Marvel’s Spider-Man, Forza Horizon 4 and God of War have stormed the game charts, Microsoft and Sony announced they’re developing next-generation consoles and the Nintendo Switch keeps climbing to new third-party gaming heights. But that excitement comes with the reality that gaming these days is pricey, making Cyber Monday more crucial than ever. 

And while you can expect some of the best deals to drop on Cyber Monday - which is now just hours away - there are still some significant savings to be had this Sunday with a number of games, accessories and bundles on sale. 

What can gamers expect from bargains this Cyber Monday season? Well, there are huge PS4 deals, sales on the Xbox One and even some Nintendo Switch discounts from retailers like Amazon, Jet, Newegg, Target and Walmart to name a few. 

While discounts hardly require any investigating, we're expecting that all these savings could be a sign of things to come: The announcement of next-gen consoles. So, if you’ve been waiting to pick up that shiny new system, you’re in luck – because they often come as bundles with a reduced price for all of the items inside. Plus, you’ll probably be able to score a new TV on Cyber Monday to play them on. 

Until that happens, however, we’ve scoured through the deals of Cyber Monday's past and put this helpful guide together to prepare with for this year’s gaming deals.

Cyber Monday gaming deals coming soon

We've scoured the latest leaked scans of retailer Cyber Monday ads and circulars – courtesy of BlackFriday.com and BestBlackFriday.com – for the absolute best deals to come either in-store or online. Stay tuned to this page for more deals to be previewed below.

When are Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018?

Black Friday takes place on the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving, so this year it’s November 23 2018. Cyber Monday immediately follows Black Friday weekend, so that will fall on November 26, 2018.

What sort of gaming deals will we see?

We’re going to see big price drops from outlets like Jet, Newegg, Amazon, Walmart and Target – that much is sure, these retailers tend to slash the price on a lot of stock, including console bundles, hardware accessories like headsets and controllers, online play memberships like PS Plus, gaming laptops and physical games. However, physical game deals tend to revolve more around earlier games, rather than the new hotness.

Last year, we didn't see anything in the way of Nintendo Switch discounts and bundles (as the console only launched in March 2017), so anticipate all-time low prices for Nintendo Switch bundles. However, Nintendo seldom discounts consoles, and the best discounts tend to be lightning deals – which sell out in seconds. Luckily, we tend to find out about many gaming deals early, so keep an eye on this page. 

How to get the best gaming deals on Cyber Monday

We usually see discounts from the big retailers starting in early November, with retailers running promotions on smaller-time products before the big Cyber Monday show.

Over the course of the month, we will see big deals on bundles as well as the occasional mega price cut. Once Thanksgiving hits and into that evening is when the truly top deals will start popping up.

What was on offer last year?

Last year, Amazon offered big savings on Xbox One S and PS4 Pro bundles, however the Nintendo Switch (which had only launched a few months prior) didn't see a big price change.

In addition, Amazon offered reduced prices on PS Plus annual membership and physical editions of games such as Overwatch, Resident Evil 7 and WWE 2K18. Likewise, Target and Walmart reduced the price of its PS4 Pro and Xbox One S bundles alongside physical games such as Call of Duty: World War II.

Stick with TechRadar to get the best Cyber Monday deals

All that aside, Cyber Monday is going to see fleets of deals and plummeting prices across all sorts of consumer tech: everything from laptops and iPads to smartphones, Kindles, and streaming sticks.

For all the latest info and deals we've scoured from across the net, keep an eye on TR Deals on Twitter and make sure to check out the rest of the site.

We will keep you updated with all the latest Cyber Monday gaming deals as they are announced.
