Black Friday is in full swing, and GameStop is celebrating all the money pouring into its coffers with enthusiastic comments and top-selling deals.
PS4 unsurprisingly sold well it had great discounts $199 for the 1tb Slim and $350 for the Pro. PSVR seems to have done really well also, with many of the bundles selling out most everywhere I look.
PlayStation domination across all nations
I'll take a knee to any playstation nation.
That $199 PS4 is the magic benchmark.
I just bought one for my sister. I'm going to download life is strange The Walking Dead season 1 and 2 as well as Grand Theft Auto V and maybe the Sims 4 (if they fix that weird save issue)
How was switch, didn't get a chance to look today
is there any point to getting a pro over a ps4 slim? So much talk of a ps5 in the last year makes me wonder when will the pro price drop significantly. I really want Hellblade, Horizon, and TLOU2. The first 2 games will be dirt cheap soon enough. I'm an xbox gamer and I have the power with the X but I always enjoyed Sony's exclusive lineup better than MS. So is there any real difference between the slim and pro as far as how games run?
I had the base model and I have a Pro now. It's not as pronounced as the difference between S and X, but it definitely is an improvement. I'm a fan of best possible version, so I still suggest the Pro over the Slim.
Well I reckon if you feel you needed an X instead of an S its probably the same reasoning for PS console.
To be honest if you own a 4K TV you should be looking to buy a pro. I mean I'm not even sure what you're really questioning especially if you own an Xbox One X.... I mean so you're telling me you have no idea what an iterative system is yet you already own one?
Playstanation on top of all nations
Playstation for your vacation
PlayStation for your education

PlayStation, the perfect medication.
Playstabation all ovah their facions!

@VforVideogames The funny thing is Xbox One's entire 2018 line-up so far are delayed games.
PlayStation for your life's elevation
Playstation heralds mass appreciation.
PlayStation to restore all nations.
PS4 butchered Switch and Xbone to the bone.
I wouldn't call being right behind something being butchered. Obviously Switch and Xbox One sold a ton to be on that list. I love the PS4 but lets call it like it actually is instead of how we want to see it.
Worked at GameStop all day. "Right behind" is a stretch. They were miles apart.
Um..ok So let me understand this, it's the game system that primarily plays Nintendo published games versus the game system that plays every major game publisher in the world.. 🤔🤔🤔 129300;🤔
@EDMIX "system that plays every major game publisher in the world.."...except Nintendo. come on, Nintendo is a Major publisher
No surprise really. $199 for a 1TB PS4 plus a $50 gift card was a far better deal than any of the other consoles. Yes the Xbox One S was $189 but it was only a 500GB model and as usual PS4 is the preferred platform by most. Good to hear the $350 Pro did well as well though.
I don't think hdd space really mattered.
Casuals call it memory and think it makes the computer more powerful
Right, because everybody would be totally fine with a 50 gigabyte hard drive 😂
Don’t underestimate the power of PlayStation
I only picked up two games. Injustice 2 and Uncharted LL. if I had more money, I would have picked up more games. I have to admit, this is the best Black Friday sale for gaming in a long time.
I coughed me up Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Sniper elite 4 Knack 2 Agents of Mayhem Yakuza Kiwami Rise of the tomb Raider Deadpool
I really wanted to buy rise of the Tomb Raider on PlayStation Network as it was for a very good price but I just really want to own that game on disc. Respect on Yakuza , it is a really amazing remake.
Black Friday was great! Bought Agents of Mayhem,KH 2.8,Hidden Agenda,AC:Origins,Tekken 7,Dragon Quest Heroes 2.
Picked up injustice 2 also. Just completed the story today. Now to the multiverse!
I got Uncharted Lost Legacy Uncharted Collection The Last of Us Remastered Dragon Quest Heroes 2 Nioh Final Fantasy 12 World of Final Fantasy Pretty much a bunch of games I had wanted for a while but didn't get at launch for one reason or another. Pretty cool got all of them for around the cost of two new games.
Daaaaaaaammmn! Lol respect, you're going to absolutely love world of Final Fantasy! I also purchased the Uncharted collection.
I really want to get World of FF now.
Wife picked up Watch Dogs 2, Nioh, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and 2.5 while she was shopping with her bff's.
No switch games
yeah we are used to older games getting big discounts, but this year we got new games at big discounts.
As usual everyone does discount but Nintendo🙄
Wolfenstein 2 for me
I'm waiting on switch version
the worst version?
Thought. The x was going to destroy ps4 this November lol
Only people buying that piece of turd with no games are xbox worshippers. They would buy a box full of garbage if it had the xbox logo on it.
sold out on Amazon as well. Going to be some really big numbers when Sony releases them.
Gotta say I did expect Switch to do better than ps4. I guess those 199 bundled were way more enticing than I thought! That's really good going for ps4 considering switch is the hot new item and Xbox generally has much better sale deals!
Yeah but stock shortage will mess any company up, i bet in some places the mother was like no switch so he said if i can't find it get the ps4, i seen people do that in Xbox 360 days they wanted a Xbox and it was sold out at the store i worked at so they took a ps3 instead
Not really a big stock shortage. PS4 just had a huge sale and Switch had no discount. I mean, 1 TB PS4 was 200$ with a gift card for 50$, Switch was 300$. I think Nintendo should have thought of discount bundles at least.
Ummm no People do not buy things out of spite. Not like game systems that just doesn't make any sense. I just recently bought my sister a PlayStation 4 in a bunch of games, do you really believe that if it was sold out on Amazon I would get her a Nintendo switch or an Xbox one instead? 😂😂😂 28514; Yeeeeeeea no That just makes no sense it's literally one of the dumbest things I've read on this site in a pretty long time. Nobody is buying the Nintendo switch because they could not find a PlayStation 4 no different than nobody is buying a PlayStation 4 because they could not find a Nintendo switch. That is an extremely rare occurrence and I would argue it's by a very stupid consumer. So the way I see it could someone really be this stupid absolutely but what you're talking about is a rare type of stupidity you're not talking about the average consumer that is going to up and completely change their decision on a product because another one is sold out completely disregarding the product would be restocked. Put it this way I'm going to be purchasing a Nintendo switch next year.... When I purchase a Nintendo switch it will have absolutely nothing to do with another product being out of stock that doesn't make any sense and I'm having a hard time understanding what one has to do with the other.
$199 is enticing and PS4 has a great established library (plus cheaper controllers $38-39.99 USD). Switch will do fine but Sony did this move probably to undercut MS and Nintendo due to both of them having Newly released hardware.
Bu bu but the "True 4K"...
We'll have to review these numbers from the mainstream gaming media later.
All companies did very well.
I don't know why this correct and well-meaning statement has so many dislikes. I guess people on this site only want to see Playstation win and/or see Xbox fail, so all the consoles doing well makes certain people salty.
I went to three GameStop's and two Wal-marts in Huntsville Thursday and they had sold out of every PlayStation console they had! Also at the Wal-Marts most all the PS4 games were cleaned out as opposed to the others. At GameStop I asked the guy at the counter if they had any X's and he said they had three.
What about the Pro? Did you ask how that was selling?
Is that list in order of top best selling? Cuz it’d be a shame if Xbox One sold less than Switch this Black Friday despite being offered at a discount
That analyst can sleep comfortable knowing Dual Shockers will never have a bias. Like the author of this article. No way he desperately needs the attention of Sony. He's nothing but fair and balanced. In a Fox News sort of way.
Now I don't have to share with the kids. This one's for the man cave!
How is there a switch shortage? I see it everywhere
