GameStop’s Black Friday ad leaks with plenty of gaming deals

Even though we’re only a week away from the time that many companies will start offering their Black Friday deals, we haven’t heard anything official from GameStop yet. Today we’re getting an advance peek at what GameStop plans to offer on Black Friday, thanks to a new leak that shows us its entire Black Friday ad. Spoiler alert: GameStop’s Black Friday is packed with gaming deals.

The leak comes by way of BFAdsNet, which uploaded all 12 pages of the add to its website today. As far as consoles are concerned, we see the same deals already announced by Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. For instance, GameStop will be offering 1TB PlayStation 4 consoles for $199.99 and 500GB Xbox One S consoles for $190. The difference with GameStop is that it’ll give you a $50 gift card to buy a PS4 from it, so that might be worth considering if you plan to go out on Black Friday.

As expected, GameStop won’t be offering any discounts on the Nintendo Switch, though a few Switch games will be on sale. These include Sonic Forces (which is $29.99), Just Dance 2018 ($39.99) and Batman: The Telltale Series ($19.99) In other words, don’t expect to see any big discounts on first-party Nintendo games like Super Mario Odyssey or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, though GameStop will have the previously-announced Breath of the Wild Explorer’s Edition on hand.

While GameStop will offer varying discounts on a bunch of new games, the deal mosts folks will probably show up for is the buy two, get one free offer on pre-owned products. GameStop is rather fond of this deal, as we see the company offer it frequently. If you’re planning to buy a lot of games and pad your backlog a bit, this is definitely something to take advantage of.

We also see GameStop discount a large variety of accessories and miscellaneous items like statues, toys, and even Pokemon cards. There’s no word on why GameStop hasn’t made this official yet, but it could have something to do with the delay of its PowerPass program, which involved pulling and changing in-store advertising. For now, you can go look at the full leaked ad – which claims that the sale will run from November 23 to November 26 both in-store and online – over at BFAdsNet.
