Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Discusses Price Increases for Games, Consoles, and Game Pass

  Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Discusses Price Increases for Games, Consoles, and Game Pass As prices continue to rise, Xbox Boss Phil Spencer weighs in on the future of Microsoft's platform and if its users will have to pay more.Following the announcement that Sony was increasing the price of the PS5, Nintendo stated that the cost of the Nintendo Switch wouldn't be going up for now. Xbox followed suit with its own declaration that the prices of the Xbox Series S and X would stay the same.

Meta Quest 2 | Resident Evil 4 | Beat Saber | $399.99 $349.99 at Amazon

We're kicking things off with possibly the best offer on the shelves right now. Not only are you scoring a $50 discount on the Meta Quest 2 (the largest we've ever seen), but you're also picking up two free games here. That's some excellent value that works to negate the price increase we saw earlier in the year. If you found yourself on the wrong side of that $100 inflation in the summer, this is the best value we've seen since then. You'll find this whole package available for $349.99 at Amazon right now.

UK: £399.99 £349 at Amazon

Nintendo Switch (Animal Crossing Edition) | $35 Dell gift card | $299.99 at Dell

If you're after a Nintendo Switch saving in the US, we'd recommend heading over to Dell for today's best offer. The Animal Crossing edition of the standard console hasn't seen any discounts in the US so far, so this free $35 gift card is looking particularly strong. We were previously seeing a $75 gift card available with the OLED model, but that was run from the shelves particularly quickly - we wouldn't wait too long if this one looks good, then.

‘I sleepwalk, I’ve been woken up by house alarms going off’…These stars have trouble sleeping

  ‘I sleepwalk, I’ve been woken up by house alarms going off’…These stars have trouble sleeping People often take a good night's sleep for granted. Whilst some have the magical ability to drift off as soon as their head hits the pillow, others find it a constant battle to get even one hour of shut-eye. These celebrities have all shared their experiences of struggling to reach the land of nod. From insomnia to an overactive mind, find out which stars struggle to sleep at night.

PS5 | God of War Ragnarok | $559 at Walmart

Remarkably, we're still seeing this PS5 stock sitting around at Walmart. These bundles have been available for all customers (not just Walmart Plus members) since the retailer launched a new drop at the start of the week. That's a stunning result considering Walmart hasn't offered any PS5 restocks for some time now. Last time the console was on these shelves it held out for a particularly long time, but we still wouldn't wait too long to jump on this availability. You'll find the console, alongside God of War Ragnarok available for $559.

iBuyPower RTX 3070 gaming PC | $1,449.99 $1,149.99 at Best Buy

This iBuyPower RTX 3070 PC was already pretty strong at $1,449.99, but Best Buy's Black Friday gaming deals have just shunted that price all the way down to $1,149.99. That's a full $300 discount on this powerful rig. You're packing an i7-12700F processor in here, alongside a 1TB SSD, that Nvidia RTX 3070 GPU, and 16GB RAM.

Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8 Deluxe | 3 months Nintendo Switch Online | $299.99 at Walmart

The annual Switch bundle is live at Walmart. This truly is the best Nintendo Switch offer of the year, and it's the best we see every year. However, these consoles don't last long on the shelves - if you're interested in grabbing a free copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and three months of Nintendo Switch Online for just $299.99 we'd recommend moving fast.

Games Confirmed To Be Using Unreal Engine 5

  Games Confirmed To Be Using Unreal Engine 5 Unreal Engine 5 is the latest version of Epic Games’ creation platform, and several upcoming games are confirmed to utilize it.Back at Summer Game Fest in 2020, Unreal Engine 5 was revealed running on a PS5. The tech demo showcased some of what players can expect from games using the engine in an unprecedented level of detail. During the GDC 2021 event, The Coalition, the studio behind Gears of War's recent entries, revealed an Unreal Engine 5 tech demo called Alpha Point, demonstrating the technology's ability to create realistic shadows and reflections.

Xbox Wireless controller | $59.99 $39 at Amazon

The Xbox Wireless controller has dipped back down to its lowest ever price at Amazon. That's a stunning result - and one we certainly didn't expect after that cost remained stuck at $44.99 in last year's Black Friday gaming deals. We don't know how long this $20 discount will last then, but we're also seeing other colorways up for grabs at $39 as well - so things are looking good at the moment. Prices are generally stuck at between $49.99 and $54.99 on these gamepads year-round, so you're picking up a steal here.

UK: £54.99 £34.99 at Amazon

Stray (PS5) | $39.99 $29 at Amazon

Amazon has cut $10 from this physical edition of Stray on PS5. That leaves us with an excellent $29 sales price on the $39.99 game - a brand new record low. Perfect for anyone looking to kick back with some fuzzy friends this holiday season, while also keeping their game box collection looking healthy as well. We haven't seen too many discounts on this already cheaper title, so today's offer is particularly strong.

UK: £34.99 £29.95 at Amazon

PS5 DualSense Controller | $69.99 $49 at Amazon

The PS5 DualSense controller is at an all-time record low price at Amazon right now. A $20 discount brings this $69.99 gamepad down to just $49 in the retailer's Black Friday PS5 deals. That's a stunning result - $10 cheaper than we've ever seen it before. Whether you've managed to score a console recently or you're looking to replace some battle-worn buttons, this is a must-see offer. What's more, we're seeing a range of color options included in this discount as well.

Black Friday gaming deals: the best Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox savings

UK: £59.99 £39.99 at Amazon

Samsung 980 Pro 2TB PS5 SSD with heatsink | $399.99 $189.99 at Amazon

This is the cheapest we've ever seen the massive 2TB Samsung 980 Pro PS5 SSD. That price has been trickling down from its $399.99 position since January, but has only ever reached $219.99 in the past. That means you're saving an additional $30 over the previous record - and securing yourself a huge $210 saving with this $189.99 price. There's plenty of room to keep all your new games in here, and with the heatsink built in there's no faffing in installation either.

UK: 1TB | £180.99 £99.99 at Amazon

MSI GP66 Leopard RTX 3080 gaming laptop | $2,399 $1,399 at Walmart

We certainly weren't expecting to see RTX 3080 machines start dropping below $1,400 in this week's Black Friday gaming deals, but Walmart's done just that with this MSI GP66 Leopard. This is the same rig we were celebrating for hitting $1,799 last year, so you've got an extra $400 in the bank this time around. Considering the i7-11800H processor, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD this isn't the latest RTX 3080 configuration around, but it's certainly one of the (if not the) cheapest.

Logitech G203 wired gaming mouse | $39.99 $19.88 at Amazon

If you're after a budget pointer, the Logitech G203 is perfectly primed for the picking right now. A $20 discount shaves half the price off this 8K DPI pointer (you really don't need much more than that), and you're still getting six programmable buttons, onboard preset storage, and RGB lighting in board. All that comes in at just $19.88 in Amazon's Black Friday gaming deals - a far cry from the $39.99 MSRP. That's perfect if those three-figure mice don't quite fit the bill.

Elden Ring | $59.99 $35 at Walmart

We've been stuck at a $49.99 sales price for Elden Ring all year, but Walmart has just come along and smashed through that previous record. You'll find the 2022 heavyweight available for just $35 right now - that's a full $25 of the final cost. Whether you've been holding out for a saving or you're just getting round to this FromSoftware giant, there's excellent value up for grabs right now.

Planet Coaster | $36.29 $6.39 at CDKeys

Yes, we haven't seen a price reaching over $30 on Planet Coaster for a little while now, but this is still an excellent final cost from CDKeys. You're picking up endless entertainment with this theme park builder, all for just $6.39. Considering Steam is still charging $11 for this title, that's a steal.

Elgato HD60 X external capture card | $199.99 $149.99 at Amazon

The Elgato HD60 X capture card is perfect for mid-range streaming - and you'll find it with an impressive $50 discount at Amazon right now. This brings that $199.99 MSRP down to a record low $149.99 position today, excellent news for PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Mac players. We've never seen that $200 price point waver, so this is a particularly strong offer.

Razer BlackShark V2 | $99.99 $69.99 at Amazon

This is our top pick for any gaming headset for any use or platform. Based on its sheer quality, performance, and the value it offers even at its MSRP, it's just an all-round brilliant headset. The chance to get it for its second lowest-ever price in this Black Friday gaming deal is not one to be passed up mildly...

However, if you don't mind a different design and aesthetic - you won't see it if you're wearing it anyway, right - then you can save a further $10 and go for the CourageJD model which is just $59.99!

Nintendo Switch | Mario Kart 8 Deluxe | 3 months Nintendo Switch Online | £316.97 £259.99 at Very

Here we go! Welcome to the morning of Black Friday, and welcome to our continued coverage of the Black Friday gaming deals live as they roll in and across the virtual shelves. We'll be picking the best fresh deals from both sides of the Atlantic throughout the day, and also reminding you of the best ones still available too.

The most underrated artists in pop music history

  The most underrated artists in pop music history “Underrated pop artist” is a bit of an oxymoron, seeing as though “popular” is right there in the title. But for as much critical or commercial success as the following artists have achieved, we can’t help but think that they deserve even more recognition for their musical abilities, beyond the number of albums they sold. Here are some of the most underrated artists in pop music history, from forgotten stars of the past to underappreciated talents of today.

Kicking today off we're pointing UK readers toward one of the best Nintendo Switch deals still available. This bundle gets you a Nintendo Switch console, a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and three months of Nintendo Switch Online here. All in, that's a total £316.97 value - for a full £56.98 saving. This is one of the best Nintendo Switch bundles we see year after year, but it's generally reserved for these Black Friday gaming deals.

Xbox Wireless Controller | £54.99 £34.99 at Amazon

Another one for our UK friends here: this is the perfect opportunity to add another controller to your Xbox or PC setup and take advantage of a bargain price! There's almost always room for another controller in your gaming setup so getting what's widely considered as the most solid and usable of them all (not for me, I hate asymmetrical controllers) in the shape of the standard Xbox Controller for a record-low price is just a no-brainer. Strike now to stock up and get a spare!

Early birds in the USA who are up already - or joining us after this post can get a very similar deal at Best Buy using the link below.

Xbox Series S | £249 £189 at Very

Heading over to the UK this morning, we're calling back to this Xbox Series S deal that's still available at Very, despite running off the shelves at Amazon. You're scoring a record low price on this cheaper console, with a full £60 off the final price tag. That means the Series S is now just £189 - much better than the £249.99 RRP. Considering we've never seen that cost go below around £240 that's an excellent offer and one we certainly wouldn't want to miss out on.

SanDisk 512GB memory card | $99.99 $39.99 at Amazon

Everyone needs more storage. This SanDisk 512GB memory card is now up for sale at $39.99 – a huge $60 discount. Whether you are looking to invest in more games now or want to futureproof, this is one of the best memory card deals of Black Friday yet.

UK: £69.99 £34.99 at Amazon

Mario Kart Live Home Circuit | $99.99 $59.99 at Dell

Mario Kart Live Home Circuit previously dropped to this record low price in last year's Black Friday gaming deals, but we haven't seen much of that $40 discount since. Dell has come through today, though, with a return to this much-loved offer in its own holiday sales. You'll find the Luigi version available for just $59.99 right now - excellent news if you've already exhausted all of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Razer Blade 14 RTX 3080 gaming laptop | $2,799.99 $1,999.99 at Amazon

If you're looking to invest in a beast of a gaming laptop this year, the Razer Blade 14 may be just what you're looking for. You're saving a massive $800 here, and securing yourself one of the best gaming laptops on the market, with one of the best graphics cards on the market, for just under $2,000. We don't see these kinds of prices on premium Razer machines every day, which means this is a particularly rare discount. Under the hood, you'll find a Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB SSD - all squeezed into a slimline 14-inch form factor.

Logitech G502 Hero gaming mouse | $79.99 $34.99 at Amazon

The Logitech G502 Hero is a spectacular budget iteration of one of the best gaming mouse models on the market right now. This wired pointer packs a 25K sensor, with 11 programmable buttons and an adjustable weight design. That makes it a flexible, powerful device for pretty much any genre. All of that comes in at just $34.99 in today's Black Friday deals - 56% (or $45) off the $79.99 MSRP.

UK: £79.99 £39.99 at Amazon

UK: £99.99 £55.99 at Amazon

Nintendo Switch OLED | $349.99 $319.99 at Woot

We've just spotted a record breaking $30 discount on the Nintendo Switch OLED at Woot, but you'll need to move fast to secure it. We regularly see these flash sales running off the shelves almost as quickly as they appear, so this $319.99 sale price on the $349.99 consoles certainly won't last long. We haven't seen a single straight discount on the OLED device in the US so far this Black Friday, so this is a stunner.

Xbox Series S | $299.99 $219.99 at Woot

Following up on the Nintendo Switch offer below, Woot's Black Friday gaming deals can also send you home with a record low price on the Xbox Series S as well. That's an additional $30 off the $249 sales price we're seeing at other retailers, and it even beats Dell's previous winner - a $237 rate. Again, you'll need to move fast if you're going to grab an Xbox Series S for just $219.99 - these kinds of offers don't stay on the shelves for long.

Arozzi Arena Leggero gaming desk | $329.99 $122.99 at Amazon

This is a record low price on the Arozzi Arena Leggero gaming desk, dropping the $329.99 MSRP all the way down to $122.99 at Amazon. Considering we haven't seen sales fall further than around $180 in the past, that's a solid extra saving. What makes it a gaming desk? You're getting some neat extras in here - a machine washable mouse pad material across the entire top, cable management runs underneath, and a sturdy steel frame to keep everything safe.

Razer Iskur X XL gaming chair | $499.99 $249.99 at Best Buy

You're getting the Razer Iskur X XL gaming chair for half price in Best Buy's latest Black Friday gaming deals, with a full $250 off the $499.99 MSRP. That means you're securing yourself those classic cushions for just $249.99 - an excellent price if you're after a wider, taller place to rest your rear.

Elden Ring | $59.99 $35 at Walmart

We first spotted this record low price on Elden Ring on the Xbox Series X version, but now Walmart is offering the same $25 discount on the PS5 release as well. This is another record low price, where we were previously stuck at $49.99. Whether you've been waiting in the shadows since release, or you're finally ready to try your hand at this unforgiving FromSoftware release, that's an excellent price.

HP Omen 27-inch QHD G-Sync Compatible gaming monitor | $399.99 $249.99 at Best Buy

With $150 off the final price, this HP Omen gaming monitor is looking pretty strong right now. You'll find the G-Sync compatible display up for just $249.99 (was $399.99) - not too shabby for a 27-inch QHD display with a 165Hz refresh rate. Of course, you're also picking up AMD FreeSync in this panel, with a 1ms response time as well.

Samsung S95B | 55-inch | $1,597.99 $1,449.99 at Samsung

However, if you're looking at gaming screens but are after something more TV shaped, or larger scale, then this Black Friday QD-OLED deal is probably the best big screen offer to consider right now.  This is Samsung's first OLED TV in ages, and it's widely considered to be one of the top TVs of the entire year from any manufacturer.  The price has slid since its release earlier this year, but this (and the UK price below) are record lows! Given the S95B employs the newest and arguably best tech available in modern TVs this is one of the finest gaming deals going.

UK: £1,499 £1,299 at Samsung

Sony Pulse 3D headset | PS5 & PS4 | $99.99 $69 at Walmart

This is one of the most straightforward recommendations we have for anyone looking for a PS5 headset or accessory boost this winter. In fact, it's a great shout if you're still on PS4 too! This record low $69 sales price at Walmart right now is an absolute belter of a deal and means you not only get the official headset but one of the best PS5 headsets going, period. Considering we've never seen this set move too far beyond $90 the value here is excellent.

UK: £89.99 £69.99 at Currys

Turtle Beach Recon Controller | $59.95 $39.95 at Amazon

The Turtle Beach Recon Controller is one of the best alternatives to the official gamepad out there when it comes to sheer value, and that's compounded today by a record low $39.95 sale price in Amazon's Black Friday gaming deals. You're saving $20 on this controller right now, and adding a suite of audio controls, additional mappable paddle buttons, and the brand's Superhuman Hearing EQ modes. That's excellent news if you're looking for a set of buttons that takes things just that little bit further.

UK: £49.99 £42.99 at Amazon

GTA V | $39.99 $10 at Walmart

It's that time of year again - time to buy GTA V on another platform. If you haven't got the PS5 case in your collection yet, you can save around $30 at Walmart right now. That leaves us with the lowest price we've seen yet on the latest version of the classic game, dropping the $39.99 MSRP to $10.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition | $59.88 $20 at Walmart

Sticking with Walmart we've got an excellent $20 sale price on Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. Whether you're ready to dive back into the franchise, or you're looking to experience a piece of gaming history for the first time, this is an excellent offer. All in, you're saving a little under $40 here, down from that original $59.88 MSRP.

ThrustMaster eSwap X Pro controller | $50 Dell gift card | $159.99 $109.99 at Dell

With plenty of offers across PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox up for grabs elsewhere on the site, we're sure you'll be able to put that additional discount to good use today. You're getting a super customizable gamepad here, all for $109.99 - $50 off the $159.99 MSRP.

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 RTX 3050 gaming laptop | $899.99 $549.99 at Amazon

If you're after a budget starter rig but don't need to blow big bucks on a large SSD or bags of RAM, this Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 configuration is looking particularly sweet at $549.99. You're picking up an excellent Ryzen 5 6600H processor and RTX 3050 GPU for the cash here, while dropping things down to 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD to keep that price so low. All in, there's $350 worth of savings up for grabs here, kicking that $899.99 MSRP all the way down.

ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GPU | $529.99 $450.49 at Amazon

This is a brand new record low price on the impressive ZOTAC RTX 3070 GPU. We've seen that price trickling down from a massive $909.99 height back in March, but today's offer marks a strong departure from the $529.99 price we've been seeing since then. You'll find it currently available for $450.49 at Amazon and we've never spotted such a low price on this 8GB card. That's perfect if you're putting your own build together in today's Black Friday gaming deals.

CyberPowerPC RTX 3070 gaming PC | $1,449.99 $1,199.99 at Best Buy

We generally see machines with this graphics card going for around $1,400 so you're picking up an excellent rate here, compared to the $1,449.99 MSRP.

HP Victus 15.6-inch GTX 1650 gaming laptop | $799.99 $479.99 at Best Buy

We almost never see gaming laptops drop below $500 - even on Black Friday - so finding an HP Victus with a 12th generation i5 processor and 144Hz display for just $479.99 is an incredible feat. You're securing $320 in savings with this Black Friday gaming deal at Best Buy - and while you are dropping down to a GTX 1650 graphics card you're still getting plenty of power for lighter entry level play.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro + DAC | $249.99 $149.99 at Amazon

We haven't seen this record low $149.99 sale price on the SteelSeries Arctis Pro and DAC combination since 2019. That makes this a must-see discount if you're after a high quality set of cups for PlayStation or PC, with a full $100 off the original $249.99 MSRP. We've only ever seen prices bottom out at $174.44 this year, so you're saving an additional $24 in today's Black Friday gaming deals.

Logitech G29 racing wheel for PlayStation | $399.99 $199.99 at Amazon

Logitech G920 racing wheel for Xbox | $299.99 $199.99 at Amazon

Logitech racing wheels are up to $200 off at Amazon right now, with discounts across both the PlayStation and Xbox releases. The larger saving sits on the Logitech G29 for PS4 and PS5, with that $399.99 MSRP giving way to a $200 discount in today's sales. However, you'll also find a $100 saving on the Xbox G920 model, dropping it down to the same $199.99 sale price.

Razer Basilisk Ultimate wireless gaming mouse with charging dock | $169.99 $79.99 at Amazon

This is the best price we've ever seen on the Razer Basilisk Ultimate and its wireless charging cradle. For just $79.99 you're getting one of the more comfortable pointers in Razer's range as well as the premium dock as well. With 11 programmable buttons and a 20K DPI sensor, there's plenty of value in that $80 sales price, and considering we've only witnessed it drop down to $79.99 twice before today this is a must see deal.

Samsung 32-inch Odyssey G5 QHD gaming monitor | $349.99 $269.99 at Amazon

We've got another record low price here, this time on the 32-inch 2022 refresh of the Samsung Odyssey G5. You're getting a QHD 165Hz gaming monitor here for a great rate - and a particularly impressive one considering we've only ever seen this model drop to $289 in the past, and even that sale was at the start of the week. Today's Black Friday gaming deals can send you home with the $349.99 display for just $269.99 - that's an $80 discount.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart | $69.99 $29.99 at Best Buy

Ratchet & Clank isn't exactly an old release - sure, it's not the newest but it's still excellent value at $29.99. You're saving $40 on this intergalactic adventure at Best Buy right now, and scooping up the latest instalment for the lowest price we've ever seen. We're generally used to a $49.499 sale price here, so this is an additional $20 saving.

It only comes out for the holiday sales, and it rarely lasts long.

That makes it the best Quest 2 deal we've seen yet by a long shot.

Corsair K100 RGB gaming keyboard | $249.99 $179.99 at Amazon

The Corsair K100 is just 99 cents off its lowest price ever in Amazon's latest Black Friday gaming deals. That means you're saving $70 on the full-sized deck right now, dropping that $249.99 MSRP down to $179.99. This is a premium set of keys packed with Corsair's latest Axon processing tech and luxurious double-shot PBT keycaps. We generally only ever see this deck hovering around $200 when on sale, so you're saving an additional $20 compared to usual here.

Horizon Forbidden West | $69.99 $35 at Walmart

Horizon Forbidden West is half price at Walmart right now. That's an excellent result considering we haven't seen this 2022 release budge past a $49.99 sale price in the past, and other retailers don't seem to be moving beyond that position even in today's sales. We'd recommend grabbing this one for $35 (was $69.99) while you can then.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1660 6GB GPU | $269.99 $179.99 at Amazon

If you're after a budget graphics card this Black Friday, we'd recommend checking out this 6GB GTX 1660 at Amazon. The ZOTAC GPU is at a brand new record low $179.99 sales price right now, with a solid $90 off the original $269.99 MSRP. That's perfect whether you're building a budget setup from scratch or replacing a well-worn companion.

HP Victus 15.6-inch GTX 1650 gaming laptop | $799.99 $479.99 at Best Buy

We almost never see gaming laptops drop below $500 - even on Black Friday - so finding an HP Victus with a 12th generation i5 processor and 144Hz display for just $479.99 is an incredible feat. You're securing $320 in savings with this Black Friday gaming deal at Best Buy - and while you are dropping down to a GTX 1650 graphics card you're still getting plenty of power for lighter entry level play.

The Quarry | $69.99 $29 at Amazon

The horror video game The Quarry on PS5 is a frankly absurd value at $29. That's roughly $40 off the listed price of $69.99 over at Amazon right now. The Xbox Series X version is similarly marked down, and PS4 is even lower at $19.93. Even if you're not traditionally a fan of horror, it's always worth seeing the new ways in which developer Supermassive Games is pushing the genre.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild | $59.99 $29 at Walmart

If you somehow don't already own The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch, $29 at Walmart is a steal for a physical copy of the popular video game. Given that the MSRP is typically $59.99, that's $30 below what a full-price copy of the title would typically run. And first-party Nintendo games still rarely go on sale, so if you're looking to get in on it before the upcoming sequel, now's your moment.

Meta Quest 2 with Resident Evil 4 and Beat Saber | $399.99 $349.99 at Amazon

The Meta Quest 2 being $50 off the current MSRP is already a pretty good deal, but packing in Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 makes it easily one of the best Black Friday deals we've seen. It's still available for $349.99 at Amazon right now, and while you might have seen us promote this specific deal multiple times - there's a good reason. If you're looking to dip into VR, there's no better way than this.

Here are some of the most underrated artists in pop music history, from forgotten stars of the past to underappreciated talents of today.
