Update: Black Friday has ended so check out our best Cyber Monday gaming deals for the latest discounts on laptops, headphones, consoles and more! 

Black Friday might be over, but the gaming deals are still going at full speed. We're rounding up the top Black Friday deals on gaming gear. 

Most frugal gamers know that this is the best time to score solid gaming discounts. If you're gaming on a budget, this month's Black Friday gaming deals will help ease the strain on your wallet. And while Black Friday is don, we expect to see aggressive discounts on gaming laptops from various retailers on Cyber Monday 2020 which starts on November 30. In fact, there are plenty of Black Friday deals on gaming-specific machines from brands like Alienware, Gigabyte, MSI, and Lenovo.  Just stay tuned. 

Looking for Black Friday gaming chair deals or cheaply priced gaming accessories? This month's gaming deals are bound to offer excellent markdowns on gaming monitors, headsets, and external storage.

If you're on the prowl for PlayStation or Xbox gaming deals, be on the lookout for previous-gen system bundle deals. These offer the best value for your dollar since they often include free games or an extra controller. Expect to see stellar price drops on PS4 and Xbox One game titles especially. 

Now that we're two weeks past the release date of the PS5 and Xbox One Series X|S, it's likely too early to see console deals. However, you might be able to snag a modest discount on the PS5 and games and accessories. In fact, we're currently seeing PS5 deals in the form of a free digital upgrade from select PS4 games. 

Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals will be much like last year's Black Friday deals. Although there weren't many discounts on consoles, we saw Black Friday prices on select Switch games and accessories. 

Black Friday falls on November 27 and we expect to see tons of deals on the industry's best tech. Be sure to bookmark our Cyber Monday 2020 deals hub for this year's best holiday discounts.

If you can't afford to wait, check out the best gaming deals you can score right now.
