Amazon matches Wal-Mart’s $49 pre-Black Friday price on Xbox One & PS4 games

Amazon aims to directly compete with Wal-Mart by matching their pre-Black Friday sale on select next-gen games, including both cross-platform and exclusive titles.


Many gamers have already taken advantage of Wal-Mart’s fantastic pre-Black Friday sale, which slashes prices on select next-gen games down to $49. This is a great way to save a nice bit of change, as any gamer can tell you the weight of multiple retail game purchases can do a number on your pocketbook.

It’s only natural to want to pick up a few games for your snazzy new next-gen console, but due to the high demand some Wal-Mart stores have run out of stock both on-shelf and online.

Luckily Amazon has you covered.

One keen-eyed NeoGAF user spotted that Amazon has met Wal-Marts sale on certain Xbox One and PlayStation 4 games, spanning cross-platform titles like Call of Duty: Ghosts and Angry Birds: Star Wars along with exclusives like Knack and Dead Rising 3.

Below is a full list of the games offered in Amazon’s sale, all of which are marked down to $49. Note that not all cross-platform games are available for the opposite system, i.e. NBA 2K14 is only available on Xbox One in Amazon’s sale.

Be sure to scan Amazon’s teasingly suspenseful Black Friday samples which pop-up every ten minutes, offering a glimpse on what’s to come on the big day.

As for other Black Friday game deals, don’t forget that Target is offering a Nintendo 3DS XL console for $149.99, and even a 50-inch 1080p Element HDTV for just $229.

Best Buy, on the other hand, has them beat with their 3DS XL Luigi’s Mansion bundle for the same price.

These sales offer consumers a great way to knock off a few gifts off their Christmas list (or maybe level out your PS4/Xbox One launch day collection) without having to put too much hurt on your wallet. The trade off is that you might have to wrestle a few mobs who have their eye on your shiny new 3DS (or 50-inch HDTV), but that’s Black Friday for you.
