Gaming culture is saturating the general public more than ever – yes, even more so than when “Pac-Man Fever” hit the Billboard charts in 1982. Apple TV received critical acclaim last year. Mythic Quest guest viewers into the world of game development. Celebrities like Chris Gethard, Robby Hoffman, and Martin Urbano took to the Twitch gaming platform as an alternative to live comedy shows during quarantine, helping to bring more attention to the broadcast platform in direct. And the pandemic has helped many of us – who may have fallen out of the game between frog and Fortnite – rediscover this love.

Nintendo Switch sales surged last year, as homebound gamers explored the virtual world of Animal crossing, and the launch of next-gen gaming systems like Playstation 5 and the Xbox Series X and Series S led retailers to sell out within minutes.

All of that to say that now, with everyone and their grandma (literally) playing games, you might think there is little need for sales to get anyone to buy games. Yet, with Labor Day weekend upon us, you can still find great deals on great games, and even systems that are extremely hard to find.

We’ve scoured the internet for the best gaming deals this Labor Day for Xbox, Playstation, Switch, PC and more. Think of us as your Professor Oak, or the man in the cave of THE Legend of Zelda, and here is your map. Now it’s up to you to put your skills to the test – and see if you’re quick enough to score some of these hot titles and next-gen systems before they’re all gone.

Your eyes are not fooling you. QVC is currently in possession of the constantly out-of-print Xbox Series X, Microsoft’s latest gaming system capable of playing both digital and disc games. Even more remarkable, he offers this system as part of a bundle, including Madden 21, a Nyko gaming headset and Nyko dual charging dock, and even a voucher Mighty Skins for customizable console and controller skins.

On top of that, QVC is offering this bundle for $ 100 off the original price. Finding a new console in such high demand is quite rare these days, but being able to find one at a reduced price? Well, to put it in Madden terms, it has about the same odds as the “headphone jack” from Super Bowl XLII. These guys are obviously going fast, so if you were intending to upgrade your game to the next gen, now is your chance.
