Target is launching an early Black Friday video game sale today. The retail chain is offering deep discounts across quite a few newer titles and gaming accessories.
With the holiday season and next console generation fast approaching, retailers are pulling out all the stops to get a head start on the competition. Target is hardly the first major store to unveil holiday game deals, however, as Walmart’s first set of Black Friday deals has been available for weeks.
The deals, which Target is unveiling on their website, are also available in-store. Players will find that the primary focus of the sale is on video games themselves. Target is discounting several acclaimed RPGs down to $25, such as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Final Fantasy 7: Remake. Players can also snag games like Gears 5 and Skate 3 for just ten bucks apiece. Surprisingly, the biggest discounts are on the latest software. Largely the new upgradeable EA sport titles, these games feature the biggest savings of the sale. Regularly the full $60, the available titles at $29.99 are:
- Madden NFL 21
- FIFA 21
- UFC 21
- Marvel’s Avengers

In addition, the retail giant is offering several deals on gaming accessories from top-rated brands. Those looking to upgrade to a new headset can get a pair of Turtle Beach Stealth 300s for $39.99, half-off its usual price tag. If players are looking for more than just the headset, SteelSeries’ all-in-one gaming bundle has a $30 discount.
Other peripherals featured as part of the Black Friday sale include third-party controllers, charging stations, and protective cases. One thing notably missing is any deals on consoles, old or new. This likely indicates a hold on PS5 and Series X deals until after next week’s launch. Gamers will have to stay tuned if any system discounts appear in the coming weeks.
Despite the sale lasting only two days, Target has absolutely no plans to slow down. The day after THIS sale is over, Target’s B2G1 promo begins. Fortunately, Target has stated it will price match sale-included items should they go lower at any point through December 25.
Target is one of the many retailers vying for their share of the gaming market with early Black Friday sales. Players who are more concerned with getting their hands on one of the next-gen consoles can check with Best Buy, who previously confirmed the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be available to purchase.
The first of Target‘s Black Friday video game deals runs today through November 7.
