Black Friday is now pretty much finished as Cyber Monday usually marks the last day of the festive deals-a-thon where massive prices get dropped on some of the hottest items before Christmas. This year has seen a lot of great deals for PC gamers, so we wanted to know if you got anything special or interesting during the recent sales?

These can range anywhere from new PC hardware to new games, or maybe even a fridge magnet if that’s your thing. As long as it is related to gaming in some way then let us know! Let’s spread the festive joy and get the Christmas gift shopping/unwrapping feeling off to an early start.

Maybe you managed to bag yourself one of the brand new graphics cards like an RTX 3080 or RX 6800 XT? Or maybe you saw how cheap Red Dead Redemption 2 was in the sales and finally decided to pick it up? Or maybe you've been looking at a specific video game replica item or a cosplaying costume and you just had to get it in the sale?

I for one recently purchased a new gaming chair as I’ve never actually had one and thought it was just a cheap gimmick to lull gamers into buying a product that they can get for way cheaper. Oh how wrong I was. I never knew a gaming chair to work so many wonders and yet here we are, plus it was at a fantastic discount that they were practically giving them away.

And you know what? Cyber Monday isn't exactly over just yet so if you've managed to find a great deal yourself then why not let everyone else know so that we can all benefit from it?

So what do you think? What gaming goodies did you get for Black Friday 2020? Was it hardware? Or a new game? Or some gaming-related items? And have you spotted any great Cyber Monday deals? Let's debate!

Did you get any great deals in Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

Was it a game? Hardware? Or gaming related?

Do you normally wait for sales like this to buy the latest hardware or games?

Got Streets of rage 4 and played it with my bro. We had a blast and it was more than worth the money. I also managed to get the Logitech Hero G502 mouse, it's super heavy but worth imo

Not exactly black friday, but I got 1 month of xbox ultimate for $1. Came with 1 month of disney+


That game pass to play and try games out is pretty useful. Found out I dont like some games that are supposedly good. And some less well received ones are actually wicked good. I’m rapidly losing trust in what consensus thinks are good games :P

I got a new chair and a side table for snacking. As well as a few indie games. The chair is a recliner, so I will be ultra comfy.

I bought a Logitech G502 ( wasnt planing at all tho as i had no problems using my current mouse ) since the back button and scroll click stopped on my Cooler Master MasterKeys Lite Mouse.


I got the G502 for 34e ( 40 USD ) on Saturn.de while my country had it for 80$ with the "sale" ( without the sale it was 130$ )

In my country no black friday deal is really worth it unless you were planning to already get the specific hardware. so didn't buy anything myself.

I don't know if this was a BF discount or whatever, but I got myself Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate edition for £38, down from £79.99, which was definitely worth the money, considering the fun I've had so far. And got a motocross game on the Switch for £2.49 (down from £24.99), which is cheap enough for me not to care even if I don't like it, so I'll take a punt there.


In terms of hardware... nothing, really. I was looking into some drives maybe, but I've got plenty, so I can wait for even more usable capacities at more reasonable prices.

that was my thoughts on drives too.
the random sales throughout the year were within $10 of these sales.

Yeah, the pricing didn't really impress me. Like you said - these sales are a dime a dozen. Hell, I was paying similar prices years back, just had to fish a bit harder, while now they're more common. That's why I'm more interested in the 2-4TB range of SSDs dropping a bit more in the near future.
