  1. Logitech’s new G Cloud portable gaming device is marked down to $300 (normally $350) as part of Amazon’s Black Friday gaming sale. See Logitech G Cloud at AmazonThis tiny portable gaming console sports a 7-inch 60hz 1080p display, up to 12 hours of battery life, 1TB storage space, and only weighs 463g--figures that eclipse similar devices like Nintendo’s Switch lineup or Valve’s Steam Deck. However, true to its name, The G Cloud is a cloud-only gaming device; it doesn’t run games natively on the hardware. Instead, the G Cloud is compatible with several major cloud streaming services, including Nvidia GeForce Now, Amazon Luna, Xbox cloud streaming via Game Pass Ultimate, and other streaming apps available from the Google Play Store. The G Cloud also works as a remote play device, so you can stream games from your PlayStation, Xbox, or gaming PC over Wi-Fi, and it supports 2.4 and 5Ghz Wi-Fi for strong, stable internet connections necessary to maintain optimal visuals and performance while streaming games via a cloud service or an external device. If you’re looking into other cloud gaming deals, be sure to check this discount on a Backbone controller for iOS, or this Microsoft store sale that includes tons of Xbox and PC games--some of which are even playable over the cloud. And don’t forget to keep tabs on our Black Friday 2022 deals coverage for all the best offers available today. View the full article
  2. HORI’s unique 3D Surround Gaming Neckset for PlayStation 4 and 5 is almost 50% off for Black Friday. You can grab it right now for just $62 (down from $120) at Amazon. There’s also an Xbox model that works with Xbox One and Series X, though it’s only discounted to $80 (normally $120). Aside from the prices and platform compatibility, the only other difference between the devices is the PlayStation model is white and Xbox model is black. Both are also Windows-compatible. See Hori's Neckset at Amazon Despite looking like something a Cyberpunk 2077 character would wear, this neck-mounted speaker is a very real device that splits the difference between a wired gaming headset and an external surround sound speaker setup. Similar to gaming headsets, Hori’s Neckset plugs into your PlayStation or Xbox controller’s headphone jack (or any other compatible device) via the included 3.5mm cable, and it works as an all-in-one personal surround sound solution. It even includes a built-in microphone for voice chat and integrated volume controls. However, instead of pumping audio directly into your ears and isolating you from your surroundings, the neck-mounted speakers fire upward for a more open audio experience akin to listening through speakers or a soundbar, and it frees you of the extra weight on your ears and head that can come from using a headset. It's a novel audio device, and this Black Friday deal is the perfect opportunity to try it for yourself. Hori’s Neckset is just one of the many gaming peripherals on sale during Black Friday today. Be sure to check our Black Friday 2022 deals hub for discounts on headsets, controllers, and other accessories while they’re still available. View the full article
  3. A good gaming headset can immerse you into the gameplay and let you communicate with other players clearly, but they can be expensive. Luckily, Logitech’s G435 Lightspeed gaming headset is down to just $50 at Amazon (normally $80) thanks to Black Friday. See at AmazonThe G435 Lightspeed is a lightweight, over-ear headset that connects wirelessly to PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices via an included Bluetooth dongle. It also supports Dolby Atmos and Windows Sonic surround sound for more accurate sound staging. (Don't worry Xbox owners, plenty of Xbox-compatible headsets are on sale for Black Friday, too.) As for the headset’s build, it sports a memory foam-padded headband, breathable earcup cushioning, and weighs just under 6oz. That should keep the headset comfy even during long play sessions. Speaking of which, Logitech says the headset’s battery will last up to 18 hours on a single charge, and you can quickly and easily recharge it with the included USB cable. As for the mic, the G435 uses dual noise-canceling microphones that are integrated directly into both earcups, rather than sticking out from a mic arm, giving the headset a sleek look. Amazon is selling the discounted headset in three color schemes: Black (with tiny lime green accents), Blue (which has hot pink earcup fabric and a purple headband), and White (which has pale blue padding). You can also pair the G435 Lightspeed with the Logitech G305 wireless mouse for just $86.88 (normally $130).

  4. If you’re looking for a new Nintendo Switch controller but long for color options beyond the standard black Switch Pro controller, NexiGo’s colorful gamepads might be the pop you’re looking for, and several are on sale at Amazon for Black Friday. First, there’s NexiGo’s NS32 Bluetooth Switch controller. The design is very similar to the Switch Pro, featuring the same button layout, motion control, rumble support, and Switch-style button labels, plus a turbo button and programmable LEDs around the base of both thumbsticks. It’s compatible with the standard Nintendo Switch, Switch OLED, and Switch Lite. The price differs between the color/pattern option you choose. Four models are available for $32, featuring quirky patterns like paint splashes, cartoon astronauts, mosaics, and starry galaxies. See at Amazon Additionally, the white “Atmosphere” and dark purple “Lightstorm” NS32 models are down to $30. These models feature additional LEDs under the controller’s chassis that give the device a subtle glowing effect. Along with the wireless controllers, NexiGo’s Wireless JoyPad is also discounted to $43 (normally $50). Note that only the white SnowFall color option is discounted; all other models are at their normal price at the time of writing. See at Amazon The NexiGo JoyPad sports all the same features as the NS32, including the RGB thumbstick ring and turbo buttons, but it slides into your Nintendo Switch or Switch OLED’s Joy-Con slots. You can of course pair the NexiGo JoyPad to your Switch via Bluetooth and use the pad as a wireless controller (it will fit into the Switch’s external Joy-Con grip) or as a split pad for 2-player games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. There are plenty of other great deals on Nintendo Switch games and accessories happening today. Be sure to check out our Black Friday 2022 hub for updates on all the biggest discounts.

  5. Battlefield 2042 is down to just $10 (down from $20 for current-gen and $16 for last-gen) on Amazon for Black Friday. You can grab the PS5, PS4, or Xbox versions at this super low price for a limited time. See at AmazonThe PC version (either Steam or EA Origin) is also on sale at Amazon, though it’s only discounted to $19.80 (normally $60). Battlefield 2042 originally launched in November 2021, garnering a mixed reception due to the poor performance and slimmer content compared to previous Battlefields, but EA has continually updated the large-scale military shooter with new content drops and performance drops that have elevated the game beyond its rocky launch. This sale comes just in time for the big Season 3 update that dropped earlier this week, which adds a new map, character, vehicles, and weapons for players to try, plus unlockable content. Be sure to read our Battlefield 2042 review and our coverage of the previous content updates for more info on the game. There are tons of other Black Friday offers to take advantage of today, so head over to our Black Friday 2022 hub to see more of the best gaming discounts. View the full article
  6. It might be a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend in Destiny 2, but Xur isn't taking a break. Everyone's favorite Agent of the Nine has touched down, and as usual he has a new selection of sought-after weapons and rare armor sets for sale. Here's where you can find Xur and what Exotics he's selling this week. This week you can find Xur in the Tower, in the Hangar area. For his weapon, Xur is offering the Wardcliff Coil rocket launcher. Hunters can pick up the Celestial Nighthawk helmet, Titans can grab the One-Eyed Mask helmet , and for Warlocks, Xur has the Apotheosis Veil helmet. Xur LocationXur's location in the Tower.Spawn in using the Courtyard transmat zone in the Tower to find Xur this week. Head left and down the stairs to enter the Hangar section, then hang another left. Make your way to the north end of the area and look for a staircase that will take you onto a catwalk, where Xur is waiting. Xur is present every weekend in Destiny 2, starting with the daily reset at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET on Friday. Bungie doesn't mark Xur's location on the in-game map, so it can be easy to miss him if you're not aware he exists. But he only comes to specific locations, of which now there are only three: the Tower Hangar area, on Nessus in Watcher's Grave, and in the Winding Cove area of the EDZ.

  7. Metroid Dread was one of the best Nintendo Switch games of 2021, but despite being more than a year old, it's rarely on sale at major retailers. Well, now's your chance to snag a physical copy of Metroid Dread for its best price yet. Amazon is selling the stellar Switch exclusive for only $40 as part of its Black Friday sale. This deal already sold out once, so you'll want to pick it up quickly if interested. Metroid Dread would make for a great gift this holiday, especially at this price. See at Amazon Metroid Dread takes the series back to its side-scrolling roots for the first time since Metroid Fusion for Game Boy Advance in 2002. Developed by Mercury Steam, the studio behind the 3DS remake of Metroid II, Dread takes cues from Samus Returns with its counter system and refined aiming/movement controls. Dread's various unique biomes are an absolute joy to explore. In true Metroid fashion, there are many upgrades to secure and secrets to uncover. On top of the great sense of adventure, Metroid Dread has some truly phenomenal boss fights that will test your skills. Thee world is also filled with zones patrolled by the EMMI, terrifying robotic creatures that you must stealthily avoid and eventually deactivate. Longtime fans of the series will also appreciate the narrative running through this action-packed adventure. The game earned an 8/10 in GameSpot's Metroid Dread review. "More than anything else, Metroid Dread feels like going back to a place of comfort after a long time away," I wrote. "Though the gameplay is refined and new features have been added to the mix, Dread sticks closely to the formula of its predecessors. In the end, for longtime fans like myself, that's probably for the best. There's nothing to dread here. We're home again." There are plenty more great Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals available now, including discounts on two of the biggest Switch exclusives of 2022: Kirby and the Forgotten Land and Splatoon 3.

  8. You might be full of Thanksgiving turkey right now, but if you've still got an appetite for destruction, then Destiny 2's Trials of Osiris is the place to be for the next few days. As usual, it'll be another weekend of intense PvP action as players battle it out for a chance to go flawless and earn some of the best loot in the game. Here's where you'll play Trials of Osiris this weekend and what weapons you can earn. Map: Alatar of Flame Reputation Rank 4: Upgrade Module x 2Reputation Rank 7: Enhancement Prism x 3Reputation Rank 10: Trials Weapon (Changes for each rank reset)Reputation Rank 13: Upgrade Module x 2Reputation Rank 16: Trials Weapon (Changes for each rank reset)Flawless Reward: Burden of Guilt (Adept)Trials weapons now carry the Alacrity Origin Trait. It gives you increased aim assist, reload speed, stability, and range on your Trials guns when you're the last living member of a fireteam or running solo. You can also choose to swap to the Crucible Origin trait, One Quiet Moment, which greatly enhances your gun's reload speed when you reload while out of combat. As always, Trials becomes available from Friday's daily reset at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET until the weekly reset at the same time the following Tuesday. During that time, you can also pay a visit to Xur to see what Exotics he's selling. Make sure to pay a visit to Saint-14 in the Tower to pick up a Trials card, which will dictate certain bonuses (such as whether you get bonus rewards at certain milestones or if a loss will be forgiven). Trials of Osiris is a weekend PvP mode that runs from the daily reset on Friday until the weekly reset on Tuesday, giving you four days to take part. Your goal in the Trials is for you and the other two players in your fireteam to achieve a "Flawless" run, in which you win seven matches without losing any. Go Flawless and you'll earn a trip to the Lighthouse and receive some special rewards, including the new Adept weapons. These have additional stat bonuses, making them among the most coveted items you can get your hands on. Thanks to a bunch of changes to Trials this year, though, the mode is a little easier to get into than it has been. The Trials of Osiris now features matchmaking, so you can jump into matches even if you don't have a full squad of three players to take it on. Your Trials Passage--the card you purchase from Saint-14 that grants you access to the mode and tracks your wins--now does not track your losses--so you can keep playing and earning rewards even if you lose out on a Flawless run. Bungie has also adjusted Trials so that you earn rewards based on the number of rounds, rather than matches, you've won during your session, and added a reputation system that's similar to the Crucible and Gambit, making it easier to earn some of the Trials of Osiris's unique loot. Finally, you'll earn Trials Engrams for participating in the mode, which you can cash in with Saint-14 during the weekend you receive them. You can tune those engrams to yield specific pieces of loot, or take your chances with random drops that will expand what's available in your loot pool. So even if you're just jumping into Trials alone, there are plenty of ways you can earn great new gear. View the full article
  9. Mobile gaming is bigger than ever, and the best way to experience your favorite titles on the road is with a good controller. The Backbone One managed to find a spot on our best phone controller list, although its $100 price tag could put it out of reach for some shoppers. That’s not the case on Black Friday, as right now you can snag the Backbone One for just $63.69--the lowest price we’ve seen all year. Backbone’s elegant design also provides you with passthrough charging and a 3.5mm headset jack. You can even use the controller with other devices (such as an iPad or PC) to play games over Bluetooth, giving you a bit of versatility for when you’re not on the road. If you’re not sold on the Backbone One, be sure to check out the steeply discounted Razer Kishi, which is on sale for just $45, down from $100. Tons of other Black Friday deals are now live, so if you’re looking for more gaming gear this holiday season, consider checking out our Black Friday Hub--which aggregates the best deals from around the web.

  10. Kirby and the Forgotten Land is one of the best Nintendo Switch games of the year. Unfortunately, it has rarely been discounted since launching back in March. If you've been waiting for a decent discount for yourself or want to buy it as a gift this holiday, Amazon is currently selling Kirby and the Forgotten Land for $45 as part of its Black Friday sale. Though not a massive discount, this is the best price we've seen since launch. See at Amazon It's worth noting that Amazon already sold out of this deal one time, so it's certainly possible the retailer could run out of stock again. And considering Amazon prices change so frequently, you may want to grab this one in a hurry. Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the first 3D platforming entry in the long-running series. It's hard to believe it took this long for Kirby to make the leap, but HAL Laboratory definitely got it right here. A joyous and inventive platformer, Kirby's latest adventure expands on the mascot's iconic copy abilities while introducing a humorous new mechanic called Mouthful Mode. Kirby can turn into cars, water balloons, vending machines, and more--each of which brings unique puzzles and sequences with it. Great to play solo or alongside a friend or family member in local co-op, this bold new adventure earned a 9/10 in our Kirby and the Forgotten Land review.

  11. For some people, a 16:9 aspect ratio simply isn't enough. If you're one of those gamers looking to take a walk on the wide side of life, then this Black Friday deal on the 21:9 INNOCN ultrawide gaming monitor is for you, as its price has been knocked down from $600 to $400 at Amazon. Though INNOCN isn't a well-known brand, we've tested this particular model and came away quite impressed. See on Amazon This particular monitor measures in at 40 inches overall, has a 3440 x 1440p resolution, and a refresh rate of 144Hz using a DisplayPort cable and 100Hz when using an HDMI connection. It has a great 500 nits of brightness, AMD FreeSync Premium to keep out any ugly screen-tearing, and Display HDR 400 to bring out the best in your games. Many games support ultrawide resolutions these days, and if you're looking to benefit from having a wider field of view, titles like the PC ports of Marvel's Spider-Man and God of War do a great job in rendering some truly epic landscapes while you play. If you're more interested in productivity, then the included PBP/PIP technology will give you split-screen options while you work with spreadsheet, video, and other creative applications.

For Black Friday, Amazon has the EOVOLA accessories kit marked down to $38.22, almost half off. See on Amazon It's worth noting that this kit is primarily for the regular and OLED models of the Switch, but there are a number of items here that can work nicely with the smaller Switch Lite.

  13. A good steering wheel setup can add a new layer of immersion to your favorite racing games, and right now, one of the best is on sale for Black Friday. The Logitech G29 is currently marked down to $200 at Amazon, and comes with everything you need to hit top gear in games such as Gran Turismo 7 or F1 22. See on Amazon The racing wheel itself is fully equipped with premium components and inputs, and it also comes with customizable pedals that feature a pressure-sensitive design to provide a more accurate experience. The other big selling point for the G29 is that it's compatible with PS3, PS4, and PS5 games, while the force feedback will hammer home what it feels like to spin off the track.
