If you missed out on Black Friday this year, don’t worryーCyber Monday is just around the corner. Similar to the former event, Cyber Monday brings forth hundreds of exclusive offers for those who’d like to snatch up a bargain; the only difference is that the sales mainly take place online while Black Friday is generally more geared towards people shopping in-store. Online shopping can be attractive to many individuals for a number of reasons; first of all, there are no line-ups involved with shopping on the internet and second of all, you don’t have to lug the items home yourselfーthey are delivered directly to your doorstep. Another difference is that Cyber Monday generally involves online retailers such as Amazon, eBay, and the likeーalthough this trend has shifted within the recent years. Nowadays, many physical retailers also offer Cyber Monday deals in-store as a way of attracting more customers; no longer is it strictly an online-only event. Just like Black Friday, the prices of countless products are significantly reducedーeverything from laptops to computer printers, you name it. On this page, we’ll be talking about various video game deals that are available on Cyber Monday.
We’ve all probably immersed ourselves in a video game one time or anotherーthey’re fun, and they can be addicting. Not to mention the fact that they also offer us a temporary break from reality; who doesn’t like battling monsters and going on quests? Video games have come a long way since Pong and Tank back in the 1970’s. With the emergence of new gaming consoles and technology, the world of virtual reality has only grown to become more realistic. From 8-bit pixels to ultra HD 4K graphics, games have improved so much that sometimes it can be hard to discern animation from reality. Since the hype that was the Nintendo Entertainment System back in the mid 1980’s, several consoles have come and gone throughout the years including the Nintendo 64, Playstation One, Wii, to name a few. As of 2016, the most popular gaming systems appear to be that of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One, with the Wii U trailing shortly behind.
However considering the amount of effort that go into making one game, it’s not surprising to know that they can be expensive. For instance, a new Playstation 4 title can easily run over $50ーnot including tax. Of course, on top of the game itself you’d also need to have the appropriate console in order the play the game; these can definitely be an investment. For example the new Playstation 4 Pro that just came out this year currently has a price tag of $500. Gaming can definitely be an expensive hobby; especially if you’re a collector of multiple consoles and titles. Having said that, we’re lucky in that many games and console systems go on sale around this time of year during Cyber Monday. In fact, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best deals available for you gamers out thereーright here on this page.
