A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a new deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. (It also has the best name.) We’ve invited the Jelly Deals team to share a daily roundup of (mostly) gaming-related bargains with us for Black Friday, so we can pass their tips on to you. Full disclosure: if you make a purchase from one of these links, we will receive a small commission from the retailer. Hopefully you’ll find it useful!
We’re back here once again, staring down the barrel of another day’s worth of early Black Friday offers and deals. While tomorrow will be the first week of official Black Friday Week sales, there’s a decent lineup of overly-enthusiastic retailers to pick through today, so please join us as we go through the highlights. Oh, and one final reminder that the Jelly Deals contest to win a free copy of Dishonored 2 on PC ends tonight, head over here to enter.
As always, we’ll be talking about gaming stuff here, but there’s plenty of other techy or non-gaming related deals going on too. If you’d like to have a browse of some of those, head over to Jelly Deals, where we’ll be keeping tabs on everything from bluetooth headphones to toasters. We also have pages dedicated to PS4 Black Friday deals and Xbox One Black Friday deals right here on Eurogamer.
