We’re still a month and a half away from Black Friday 2016, but that doesn’t mean deals on the PlayStation 4 Slim and Xbox One S console aren’t available. While the prices will undoubtedly become more attractive come the big shopping day, we are seeing retailers compete by tacking impressive bonuses on both major 8th generation consoles. The deals are currently available for both the new (and old) PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
For example, the PS4 has deals on both the newer Slim and older non-Slim model starting at $299.99 with free games (the best pick PS4 Slim though is probably the $299 bundle with a free copy of GTA V). There’s also a non-Slim console for as cheap as $239.99.
For the Xbox One S and older non-S, we count at least 15 different noteworthy bundle deals with free games. Starting from the 2TB Gears of War 4 bundle we have pictured above, you’ll also find goodies such as the Xbox One S Minecraft bundle with a free $50 gift code plus a free game, or the recently released Gears of War 4 Xbox One S bundle with a similar offer.

On the PlayStation side, eBay is the place to find value. The new PS4 Slim Uncharted 4 bundle comes packaged with Grand Theft Auto V at no additional cost on eBay Deals (not to mention free shipping and sales tax only in CA, IN, and WA). There’s also a Slim bundle with Overwatch and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain tossed in for only an additional $10.

There are more Xbox One S bundles with decent offers, mainly because there are so many new Xbox One S bundles to choose from. Best Buy this week is offering an Xbox One S bundle with a 55-inch Samsung 4K Smart TV for $850 ($200 cheaper than buying the TV and console separately). On eBay Deals you’ll find the newly released Gears of War 4 added to the late September released Minecraft Xbox One S bundle for $309.99 only $10 more than the Minecraft bundle sells for separately.

GameStop is also in on the Xbox One S deal frenzy, offering a free copy of Fallout 4 with any bundle you buy through them. What’s hot about the GameStop’s offer is that you can even get a free copy of Fallout 4 on upcoming Xbox One S consoles such as the Battlefield 1 bundles which will be available soon next week.
If you can’t wait for Black Friday to commence to find a good 8th gen console deal, you’ll see retailers are already starting to compete for your money. If nothing looks that great, the deals will only get better as the holiday season rolls in.
