Weekend Console Download Deals for Nov. 18: Black Friday starts early

PlayStation and Xbox aren't waiting until next week to start their Black Friday sales.


There's still a week to go, but two of the big console makers aren't going to wait until Black Friday to kick off their biggest sale of the year so far. Both Xbox and PlayStation have barreled head-first into its annual Thanksgiving weekend sales, each offering up the latest third-party blockbusters while also offering up a handful of exclusive first-party titles. Some of these games are seeing discounts for the very first time, like Gotham Knights, Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, and The Last of Us: Part 1. If you want something to play over the holiday, be sure to check these deals out.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
