Blackfriday

Black Friday is a day that has very little significance in South Africa. It’s a US tradition that usually signifies the beginning of the holiday shopping season, wedged after Thanksgiving, a month before Christmas. Over the years though, retailers and consumers alike have begun to embrace the custom; the former for getting (sometimes digital) feet through doors, and the latter for the savings. It’s always nice to get things for a hefty discount.

Both the Xbox and PlayStation digital stores have kicked off their Black Friday deals ahead of the actual day, and both offer some incredible savings. The most alluring on both stores is the brand new Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, which is already going for half price, barely a month on. It’s R449.50 on both stores. Other great big bargains include The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt’s Game of the Year Edition, which is R240 on Xbox and R319 on PlayStation. Bloodborne’s game of the year edition is a tempting R280. If you don’t have that, now’s a good time to get one of the best platform exclusives around.

Anyway, here’s a great big list of games on special, with handy click-through links that we’ve unashamedly stolen from the very awesome Cheapgamer.co.za, who tirelessly collects locally available game specials.

      UGGGHH. It’s Marmite. Some people love it, others hate it. I’m firmly in the hate it camp, and couldnt recommend *not* getting it any harder.

      Personally, I enjoyed it back when I jammed it on the X360. But then again, I’m a sucker for a game with a cool fantasy setting.

      Thoroughly enjoyed it. Action RPG with a cool clambering mechanic for fighting the bigger monsters. Is very Japanese in story/visuals though.

        I only picked up on that climbing mechanic in my second playthrough. Halflings suddenly became more appealing!

        Who gave Dragons Dogma 4/10?!?
        It’s got 78% on Metacritic, 81% on PC Gamer and 8/10 on Trusted Reviews.

        It was a very fun game.

            Jeez, for once a review from this site that I completely disagree with.
            Yes, there are better RPG’s out there, but in no way does it deserve a paltry 4.

            Found the old page with the review.
            I see the problem. There was a guy named Garth doing the review. No wonder it was a dumb one.

            There is only one legendary Garth. And he tells Wayne to party on.

    When a game on special is STILL over R1 000, then it really is just too bloody expensive.

      Better than some of these online stores clickbait “up to 80% off” sales.
      Saw on Raru that they were giving a whole R30 off on the new CoD and Assassins Creed games.

      How generous of them.

    holy hell, ps games are sparse in comparison to the xbox. There are some deffo must buys though. Bloodborne GOTY, Wolfenstein, and does anyone know if Evil Within 2 is any good? I disliked the first one.

      It’s really, really good. Fixes most of the issues with the first game.
