This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2019, your source for the season’s best gifts and deals, hand-picked by the experts at CNET.

Cyber Monday is almost here and nearly all of the main Xbox and PS4 bundles are available at select national retailers, such as Best Buy and Walmart. GameStop has a decent Switch Lite offer, too, with a $25 gift card. We’ve rounded up the best Cyber Monday deals below, along with some amazing discounts on games for each console, too. Those come and go as well, so don’t delay if you find a game you want.

Now, remember that one reason the Xbox and PS4 and are so deeply discounted is that new models — the PlayStation 5 and next Xbox — will be arriving this time next year. But in the meantime, these are some of the best offers ever on these systems, and the games will be playable on the respective future platforms, too. 

If you missed Black Friday proper, don’t worry — plenty of those deals are extending into Cyber Monday. We’ve organized the bundles and discounts below by console. Have a look at these early Cyber Monday deals. And while you’re shopping, we have ideas for how to keep your stress level manageable: Visit our Holiday Survival Guide for tips on how to get through the holidays without too much strain on your emotional state and your pocketbook.

PS4 Cyber Monday deals 


The current flagship Sony PS4 Pro will be on sale for $300 at multiple online retailers and physical locations including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, GameStop and Amazon. With games and movies displayed in full 4K resolution, this is the best option if you have the budget for it. And this bundle comes with a free copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which is $40 on its own at Best Buy right now. This sold out earlier but is back in stock online at GameStop, and you can still get it in-store at Best Buy. Read our PlayStation 4 Pro review.


This is the best we’ve seen this season. Last year, you got the same console plus Spider-Man at this price, so this is a pretty big ramp-up. 

  • God of War
  • Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition
  • The Last of Us Remastered

That pulls together three of the best PS4 exclusives — albeit ones that are not for younger kids. This sold out earlier but is back in stock online at Best Buy and GameStop.

Xbox Cyber Monday deals 


Sure, you can get an Xbox One S for about $200 less than the Xbox One X, but if you do that you’re sacrificing native 4K gaming, and these days, why would you want to do that? For Cyber Monday, Best Buy is bundling the Xbox One X with the deluxe edition of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for $350. If you’re a Star Wars fan, this is the bundle to get — Fallen Order got enthusiastic reviews, and the deluxe edition adds bonus skins for the BD-1 and Stinger Mantis as well as a digital art book and 90 minutes of behind the scenes footage from the making of the game. You can whet your appetite by reading CNET’s Sean Keane’s extensive look at the game. Oh, and the bundle also includes three months of Xbox Live Gold. Read our Xbox One X review.


The Xbox One S may not have all the horsepower of an Xbox One X, but given the price difference between the consoles, it might be a worthy compromise (especially if your TV isn’t equipped to handle HDR anyway, for example). We love this deal because it lands you Jedi: Fallen Order and a new Xbox for almost half the cost of the Xbox One X bundle.

You can also get it at Target with $40 in Target bucks thrown in. Read our Xbox One S review.

Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch deals

Óscar Gutiérrez/CNET

In Nintendo Switch Land, it’s a post-apocalyptic wasteland of expired deals and sold out stock. Virtually all of the deals and bundles are gone, but if you’re in the market for a Switch Lite, we can still save you $25. GameStop is offering the Lite for its regular price, $200, but is including a $25 gift coupon, which is nearly the same thing as saving 25 bucks. If you buy online, the coupon code will be emailed within a day after you receive an order confirmation email, In-store customers will get the code printed on their receipt. Either way, you can redeem it through the month of January 2020. Move fast — this is “while supplies last.”

And now Amazon is matching that offer, too: Use code UUDDLRLRBA at checkout, and it’ll send you a $25 credit within a week. Read our Switch Lite review.
