Ah, GameStop Black Friday 2017 deals, is there any better place and time to shop? It’s here on this day once a year that you’re able to walk in with a crisp $100 bill and walk away with stacks of games – if you know what to buy.
Your best bet to walking away with a bundle of games under your arm and your wallet still somewhat full is to get there early – a whole day early, in fact.
GameStop will be open for a limited time on November 23, 2017, one full day before Black Friday officially kicks off on November 24. A GameStop ad leak points to the retailer opening its doors at 4pm local time on Thanksgiving Day, with Black Friday sale prices lasing November 26 in-store and online.
While November 23 will be a day filled with the typical Thanksgiving faire, it will now also be filled with great game deals, too! Talk about a win-win.
GameStop’s decision to open early speaks to just how big of a shopping event the week of Black Friday has become, with many customers opting to hit stores earlier than Black Friday itself. This year, many folks will finish their turkey and mashed potatoes, then head to GameStop to get the best deals on products like the Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch, PS4 Pro and SNES Classic (if there’s still stock) early.
So, where should you be looking for the best GameStop Black Friday deals? Well, right here of course! As we get closer to Black Friday, TechRadar will host all the information you need to know about the deals at GameStop – what time stores open up on November 23, what exclusive deals you’ll find in-store vs online and which fantastic games you need to snatch up when deals go live.

GameStop Black Friday ad leaks
Lo and behold, the GameStop Black Friday ad has apparently leaked, thanks to bfads.net.
According to 12 leaked pages, shoppers will be able to save $50 on a PS4 Pro, $100 on a PS4, $90 on an Xbox One S, and a lot on games. That’s not including toys and other swag GameStop will have on sale this Black Friday.
GameStop deals before Black Friday
While Black Friday remains the definitive shopping day for the game retailer, it’s not the only time you’ll be able to catch a great deal on your favorite games (which, this year, should include Star Wars Battlefront II, Super Mario Odyssey, Destiny 2, Call of Duty WWII and Assassin’s Creed Origins).
In fact, GameStop sales run every day of the week, every week of the year.
There are two places you can go to find the latest deals on offer: the GameStop Weekly Ad page and the GameStop Deals page. Both provide a look at the latest GameStop deals, whether valid for a week or only one day. The trick is to check both pages regularly as the discounts on consoles, games and other swag change frequently.
Here are some of the top savings GameStop is offering right now.
4 for $10 pre-owned games on thousands of games This promotion lets you purchase four pre-owned games priced at $4.99 or less for just $10. It’s a great way to stock up on games before the holiday break and get some gift shopping done at the same time.
For Honor pre-owned on PS4 is $19.99 (regularly $22.99) Fantasy fighting is the name of the game in Ubisoft’s For Honor. The game, which came out earlier this year, pits you against warriors from across time to see who has the strongest mettle.
Expected GameStop Black Friday deals
GameStop’s Black Friday sales will focus on the big three consoles: the Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The SNES Classic, too, will be a hot-ticket item at GameStop this year but could be a bit harder to track down due to shortages.
Not only are we anticipating major price drops on the game machines themselves (the Xbox One S, for example, is dropping down to just $189 on Black Friday), but also tantalizing bundles and savings on standalone games that will make any shopper (and their wallet) smile.
Also look out for deals on VR headsets and older consoles and handhelds, like the Wii U, PS3 and Nintendo 3DS. Nostalgia can make a really nice gift.
Xbox One X GameStop Black Friday deals: While the ad leak doesn’t show signs of the Xbox One X, as one of the year’s hottest items, we’d be surprised if GameStop didn’t offer some kind of discount on the 4K-capable console this Black Friday. Also look for the older Xbox One S and standard Xbox One to super lower prices.
PS4 GameStop Black Friday deals: In order to compete with its rival, the Xbox One X, Sony’s system should see big price cuts on Black Friday 2017. GameStop will be right there with up to $100 off PS4 systems this Black Friday,…
