Hottest Cyber Monday Deals: Video Game Consoles
Sony’s (SNE) Playstation 4 and Microsoft’s (MSFT) Xbox One both launch in November and there’s a good chance of shortages as gamers rush to snap up the next generation video game consoles. So don’t expect either of these to show up in this year’s Cyber Monday deals.
However, video games are always a big part of the event, and Cyber Monday 2013 will be no exception. Retailers will be starting the push to clear out older consoles and games to make room for the new. So expect some fireworks here.
In 2012, Walmart (WMT) knocked $100 off an Xbox 360 Skylanders bundle, offering the Xbox, two wireless controllers, a Skylanders video game (one of the year’s hottest titles) and an exclusive figurine for $159 on Cyber Monday … with free shipping.
If you’re in the market for a console on Cyber Monday 2013 — and one that still offers good graphics without the steep price tag of the next generation — expect PS3 and Xbox 360 bundles to be among the hottest Cyber Monday deals.
