GAME's Black Friday Deal - Xbox One, Three Games, And NOW TV For £240

Tempting!

We don’t usually post deals but this one is a bit too ridiculous to ignore. As of 8pm tonight in selected GAME stores, and from midnight tonight online, you can pick up a 500gb Xbox One, three games, and £15 worth of NOW TV credit for £239.99.

Admittedly the games, Goat Simulator, Rare Replay, and Orcs are not AAA titles but it’s a good starting pack. The PlayStation 4 bundle is a little more expensive but comes with better games, 500GB PS4, The Uncharted Collection, Little Big Planet 3, and £15 of Now TV.Game2j

There are a number of other bundles, all of which represent huge savings on the normal prices. It should be noted that there are a limited number of deals at each store and online, so be quick!

UPDATE: At the request of Teflon…

    Bargain, but got a PS4 and don’t want a X1.

      Not many people do, it seems.

      Have a look on Amazon at their deals this week. The limited timed “lightning” deals.

      PS4 games are going very, very quickly. To the point where you really need Amazon Prime so you can get the deal 30 minutes early. XBone version are hanging around for hours afterwards. Batman Arkham Knight was on offer for £5 off and sold out in 2 minutes for PS4, while the XBone was at 40% sold. That Shadow of Mordor thing (in it’s GOTY edition for £15.99) is 91% sold on PS4 and 57% sold on XBone.

      Now, it could be that Amazon have put a lot more XBox versions on offer to try and shift them because nobody’s buying them. Or it could just be the PS4 has sold so many more (which we know it has) and nobody wants the XBox versions.

      Add a whole load of big multiplatform games recently, and it looks like MS are going to have as bad a christmas as I did that one year when the thing with the turkey happened.

        The PS4 versions of games are going to sell more than XB1 versions because the PS4 userbase is far bigger. It’s common sense.

        Does this mean ‘nobody wants the XB1 versions’? Well when hundreds of units of one single game are being shipped no matter the percentage, I’d hardly think that is ‘nobody’.

        Also you have to take into account that lightning offers are often allocated stock of a certain number, not necessarily Amazon’s entire stock.

        Considering Xbox outsold PS4 last month no doubt on part basis of the exclusives it has, I think I’ll hold out on speculation about Christmas sales figures.

        I’m not convinced those lightning deals are in the hundreds. Possibly tens of copies available. You can probably make some reasonable guesses based on how the percentage sold numbers go up over time. It’s more than 20 copies, but quite possibly less than 100. (And some Google magic suggests the minimum stock required is 20 before anything can be a lightning deal)

        So if it’s that few, it’s a bit worrying for MS if the PS4 versions are selling in seconds and the XBone versions aren’t. Even with the massive difference in userbase, they should still be selling.

        You’d be looking at twenty for fairly expensive hardware, but for games, depending on uptake, Amazon would have well over a hundred copies to put on sale to the hundreds of potential customers out there. Shopto seem to have I don’t know how many hundreds in stock of some games and hardware. Crazy stuff.

        Look at how fast the percentage sold goes up on some of those lightning deals. The ones that aren’t selling out in seconds (or minus 29 minutes – stupid prime exclusive crap)

        Some of them are going up by more than 1% every single time it updates, which means either less than 100 copies on offer, or more copies are available but they’re selling more than 1% every time it updates.

        It’s likely to be a mix of both, really. But there are definitely some offers where it’s less than 100 copies. It just seems far too unlikely that the percentages go up at that rate constantly over longer times.

        Of course, I could be seeing patterns where there aren’t really any. People are good at doing that.

        Well if you ever needed proof that hundreds of people were virtually rolling over themselves trying to get at the bargains, the fact that GAME website is unavailable is evidence. You can go to the Black Friday deals page though, but surprise surprise, the groundbreaking bargains just bring the games down to an ordinary price, rather than the extortionate ones GAME charge by default.

        Didn’t that happen to Game last year? The website fell over and most of their deals were a bit rubbish. Except I did get a fancy edition of Watch Dogs for a decent price from them. But mostly they were rubbish.

        They seem to be doing a bit better this year though. At least their black friday page is working.

        Argos were another one that inexplicably fell over last year. Mind you, it’s quite weird that Argos are still a thing anyway.

        Yep it happened last year, hence the sarcasm. I think it happened on Boxing day as well.

        I think in the case of Game, they obviously can’t afford to sell stuff off cheaply. Or pay for a website that works. Probably saves them money they desperately need if it all falls over.

      Indeed lol, how the hell did they manage to talk that rapper into taking part? He’ll be polishing shoes in toilets now!
      The car scene was too cringey to watch, on a similar scale to those Haribo adverts, especially the Haribo Supermix family on holiday…..reaches for bucket :P

    I was going to comment on how impressive that price was, then I saw the games. IMO it would sell more for £5 less without any of those games.

    Not a bad deal but I managed to persuade a work colleague to purchase an Xbox one for her son from amazon. (The Xbox was from amazon, not her son…)
    It was £350 for Xbox one console, 12months live subscription, £10 store credit, halo 5, rise of the tomb raider, gears of war ultimate edition and forza 5. I was slightly tempted myself but gears and tomb raider will be coming to pc, I have driveclub and halo isn’t my cup of tea.
    Good deal either way.
