Cyber Monday 2021 gaming deals: games, accessories, and more – The Verge

November 29, 2021 by No Comments

Gamers are served up all kinds of great deals throughout the year. It’s not uncommon for recently released games to drop as much as 20 percent off in the first few months of release or to snag the occasional one-off deal on a controller or headset. But Black Friday and Cyber Monday are something special — a chance to get in on the year’s best offers all at once.

Like 2020, the holidays in 2021 are a bit peculiar, what with the ongoing pandemic and chip shortage. There’s no shortage of games and accessories, but fewer consoles are available for first-time buyers to gift, which means the opportunities to get one are very rare and very popular. Some retailers have even taken to charging subscription fees that offer you a boosted chance of getting a console, but even those aren’t a guarantee.

We’re splitting up this roundup by platform, so find the one you’re shopping for, and enjoy the deals. We also have a catch-all guide to the best Cyber Monday deals happening now, for all your shopping needs.
