Many of them include officially licensed designs and prints, with scratch-resistant surfaces. They’re vinyl decals with a 3M adhesive backing that makes it super easy to apply to your console, but won’t leave any sticky residue when you’re ready to return to stock! There are a bunch of matching controller skins too. Just be aware that prices vary, and some are more expensive because they include multiple skins bundled together.

Will Best Buy have the PS5 in stock on Black Friday?
The PS5 is the fastest selling console in U.S. history

Sony's PlayStation 5 has been notoriously difficult to find this year, and with all the Black Friday and holiday events going on, that's sure to continue for some time. If you want to snag one, you have to stay vigilant and constantly check restock tools to not only see what retailers have bundles or offers available, but also which stores have consoles on the shelves and ready to sell. While there are some amazing Best Buy Black Friday deals going on right now, the PS5 is not included in any of them. That leaves many wondering, will Best Buy even have the PS5 in stock for Black Friday? The truth is, we don't know, and there may not even be a way to know for sure. It's possible there will be a small restock, but Best Buy hasn't officially announced anything.

These pre-owned games are so cheap they’re a must-buy
internet vandals didnt ruin christmas for gamers microsoft sony did video game kids remotes

You can buy video games brand new, sure, but a lot of times the new prices don't reflect the age of the game. You'll have older games that rarely go on sale, or do, but the sale price isn't all that great. The alternative is to grab used games, especially now that the industry has backed off on online licenses - you only have to buy the copy of the game now, not extra DLC, unless you want it. GameStop is one of the best places to go for pre-owned games, as you might expect.

Right now, they're offering some amazing deals on pre-owned titles new and old. If you don't want to pay full price, or you want a quick and cheap way to stock up your library, this is the perfect opportunity. You can get games like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Resident Evil Village, Skyrim Special Edition, or even Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, all for some pretty good prices. You can always peruse the sale yourself below, or check out our favorites picks!
