You’d think the best gaming deals of the year would be behind us now that Black Friday is over and it’s December, but Best Buy seems to have other plans. The retailer surprised us today with a one-day offer Deathloop for PlayStation 5 in front of a new low of just $9.99 ($50 off). This deal will run until 01:00 ET unless Best Buy runs out of stock before then.
Deathloop was one of the most critically acclaimed games of 2021, combining roguelike, run-based gameplay with the immersive first-person sim action that Arkane is known for. While this isn’t the first discount since release, it’s the biggest yet, as long as you don’t factor in the fact that it’s included as a free gift for Xbox/PC Game Pass and PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers. If you’re not, $10 is a good deal if you’d rather own a physical copy.
If you haven’t had a chance to take advantage of the Black Friday deals we’ve seen on other great (and new) video games, don’t worry, you still can. A few new titles are still on sale, with Walmart selling physical editions of the 2022 game of the year contender Elder ring for PS5 and Xbox One for $35 ($14.94 off). The shopkeeper also knocks the more family and child friendly Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope for Nintendo Switch up to $39.97 (normally $59.99).
If you prefer to shop at Amazon or are just not a fan of the above games, there are still Black Friday deals from Amazon on select games. For example, you can buy the digital copy of Luigi’s mansion 3 for Nintendo Switch for $41.99 (normally $59.99). Those more into action horror games can also purchase the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X physical versions A plague story: Requiem in front of $39 ($20.99 off).
Let’s face it: Apple accessories are expensive, which is why this deal on Apple’s Magic Keyboard is a standout. Right now you can save $100 on Apple’s official keyboard for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro at Amazon, Targetand walmart when you buy it for around $249. That’s a new low for the accessory, which magnetically attaches to your iPad Pro tablet and turns it into something like a laptop on which to type more easily. It also comes with other nice features like a USB-C charging port and a trackpad with gesture support. Keep in mind that it only works with third-generation and newer 12.9-inch iPad Pros, so you can’t use it with models released in 2017 and earlier.
It’s December, which means it’s probably a good time to start holiday shopping if you haven’t already. If you’re trying to stay within your budget this year, but also want to give a high-quality gift, today’s deal is up Jabra’s Elite 3 wireless earbuds is worth checking out. Straight away, Amazon, Best Buyand surprising even Lenovo (when you use the code ELITEBF1725) sell these earbuds for $49.99 instead of $79.99, which is $2 less than their Black Friday all-time low. But don’t let the price fool you: even if these are affordable, they’re certainly not cheap in quality, which is why they’re our favorite wireless earbuds under $100. As long as you don’t need extra features like multipoint Bluetooth support or noise cancellation, they are the basis with their good sound quality and long battery life. They also offer some nice extra benefits in this price range, such as an IP55 rating for dust and water resistance.
