IPASON gaming desktop for $1349 (was $1900)
This is great value for money. A desktop gaming PC with an RTX 3070, 1TB SSD, 16GB of RAM that's currently $550 off, bringing the price down to an extremely reasonable $1349. The deal gets even better after NewEgg add a $160 gift card on top, which you can put towards extra RAM or another SSD.
Razer Huntsman Elite gaming keyboard
We reviewed the non-Elite Razer Huntsman back in 2018 and found it a fabulous mechanicall keyboard. The Elite fixes our few problems with it by adding a wrist rest and some useful (but not overboard) media controls. It's currently a whopping 50% off.
The best cheap SSD is even cheaper
Back in the day if I wanted 2 terabytes of hard drive space I needed to buy 8 hard drives and a tower case as high as my house's ceilings. Now you can do it with a single, relatively inexpensive SSD - and during Black Friday, with a single, even cheaper SSD. The WD Blue SN570 has long been one of our picks for the best SSDs and it's heavily discounted right now.
Dell 165Hz FreeSync/G-Sync gaming monitor for £116
G-Sync was my nickname at university, so I'm extra fond of this Dell 165Hz FreeSync/G-Sync monitor. The price only sweetens the deal. The G2722HS 27 inch 1080p IPS monitor is currently £129, but lowers even further to £116 if you use code BFUKG2722HS at checkout. That's more than half its normal price of £239.
58% off the best wireless gaming mouse
The Logitech G Pro wireless gaming mouse is our pick for the best wireless gaming mouse. It RRPs for £120 and its typical discount would normally knock it down to around £80. Not this Black Friday. The G Pro wireless has its biggest ever discount at Amazon right now, bringing the price down to just £50 in the UK. It's got a good discount in the US too.
DDR5 16GB and 32GB discounts
You gotta love anything called "Fury Beast", but RAM is also one of the easiest ways to upgrade your PC and make games run better. If you're in the market for some DDR5 sticks, there are several deals around at the moment, and the Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 16GB are the best we've found during Black Friday so far. If you're in the US, try the TeamGroup T-Force Vulcan DDR5, which we've tested and trust, and which is similarly discounted.
If you want an even larger chunk of new RAM, you might be interested in the Corsair Vengeance DDR5 32GB, which is discounted a roughly similar amount:
£20 off the Xbox Wireless controller
Here's another item I have personally bought this Black Friday: Microsoft's excellent Xbox wireless controller. It's £20 off in the UK, making it just £35 rather than it's normal £55. If you don't fancy it in boring black, you can also pick it up in either blue, white, red or yellow. (I went with black because I am boring.)
A gaming laptop with RTX 3070 for less than £1000
Gaming laptops are always expensive and Black Friday discounts don't always make much of a dent on their price. That makes the MS Katana GF66 unusual: not only is it reduced by a substantial £449, it's also a laptop with a high-end GPU - the RTX 3070 - for less than £1000.
The rest of the laptop's specs aren't too shabby either: a fast 512GB SSD, 16GB of DDR4, and an Intel Core i7-11800H. You can get more space and faster memory and new generations of processor - but not without paying a lot more money than this.
RPS readers' favourite mouse is 56% off
A while back we asked you: what's your favourite gaming mouse? The answer was the Logitech G502 Hero. We agree it's excellent, and so it's good news that its reduced for Black Friday via Amazon this year by a precise 56% in both the US and UK.
Even cheaper microSD deals
Although the microSD below is our pick for the best for gaming, there are deeper discounts on some other decent microSDs if you want to go even cheaper. The Samsung EVO Select 512GB is reduced to £38 (from £60) - although it's sadly sold out in the US. The slower SanDisk Ultra A1 microSD is even cheaper at £35 in the UK and $40 in the US, which is a great price if you're not so worried about speed.
The best microSD for Steam Deck (and gaming generally) is cheap
Hello! I'm going to start this liveblog by telling you of something I actually bought myself. RPS's pick for the best microSD card for the Steam Deck is currently going cheap. The Samsung Pro Plus is discounted in its various sizes in both the UK and the US:
