Best Black Friday 2022 video game deals: Gamestop, Humble and more

The best video game deals always arrive around Black Friday. Almost every store, physical and digital, will have something to buy on the cheap.

Whether you’re on console, PC, or on the go, gaming deals are coming for your wallet this year. Like every year, Black Friday is pretty much the best time to grab the games you’ve been missing throughout the year.

2022 saw the launch of fantastic titles, with Pokemon Legends, Stray, Horizon: Forbidden West and Elden Ring dominating our playtime. Meanwhile, smaller titles like Cult of Lamb, Tunic and Neon White made lasting impressions. throughout the game.

There are plenty of stores to choose from, so if you’re looking for something in particular, there’s bound to be one with a tempting offer.

Black Friday video game deals: What to expect from Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft

If you want to see what the big three are up to this year, we’ve made our predictions on separate pages. If you’re only interested in your favorite console, you won’t have to dig through the many offers we’ve uncovered.

We expect games to be heavily discounted on Xbox, while the PlayStation selection could see a similar effect. Nintendo’s first-party picks might not see their prices cut too low, but you can be anything from the hundreds of titles littering the eShop and other stores that will get much better discounts.

Expected Humble Bundle Black Friday Deals

Humble Bundle is a great example of the type of store that will bring the smackdown when it comes to deals this Black Friday. Throughout the year, Humble has delivered some of the best deals, with themes for RPGs, FPS, and more.

They also stock titles for Switch, Mac, and Linux, so you’re not limited to the usual PC affair.

We don’t expect to see too many offers on Humble Choice, their subscription service. In 2021, there was only a short-lived deal, but it was a doozy. A full year at 45% off. If it happens again, you can bet on anything we feature on this page.

GameStop deals planned for Black Friday

With GameStop, like any other physical store, you can expect to see a general range of discounts. Whether these offerings will outperform their digital counterparts remains to be seen.

However, we expect to see a whole bunch of Xbox One, PS4, and Switch games see their prices drop. As current-gen begins to ramp up even more (now three years old), physical PS5 and Xbox Series X titles will begin to require more space.

GameStop will also be offering its wide range of accessories and sundries for sale, including Funkos, figures, and more.

GameFly

In what we can only assume is a deal with the devil, GameFly still exists. Its vast amounts of rented titles aren’t what we’re focusing on here, as GameFly has an excellent catalog of used and new games that are discounted year-round.

GameFly should have a decent amount of games on sale this Black Friday, with their pre-owned lineup giving us an indication that they’re willing to drop prices even in September. Elden Ring is currently $35 for example.

We don’t know if they’ll have any offers on their subscription and rentals, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for fickle offers.

Call of Duty Black Friday Deals

Activision

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will launch in October, with the game likely not getting much of a discount when it comes to Black Friday. With such a popular title, one would expect it to be paired with consoles or even other accessories to create a deal.

If we see anything pertaining to Modern Warfare 2, we’ll be sure to include it here. Meanwhile, for those looking for classic experiences, the previous lineup of Xbox 360/PS3-era CoD titles was recently heavily discounted by Microsoft on its digital store. You’ll probably also get a glimpse of something similar on the PSN.

For those in the boat for a bargain on a laptop and the like, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for all eligible Intel chipsets and laptops, which could include a copy of Modern Warfare 2 with your purchase.

We’re covering Black Friday everywhere this year. Check out our predictions for Best Buy, Walmart, and more.
