Black Friday, for the few of you who are blissfully unaware, is an international shopping extravaganza that involves retailers online and in-store offering steep discounts on tech, electronics, games, consoles and more. Originally a US-only tradition that made its way across the oceans to other shores, it's a notorious event that can result in some serious savings as well as serious safety concerns. This year, Black Friday takes place on Friday, November 24th, 2017. For all of our other Black Friday coverage, you can check out our Black Friday gaming deals hub, where you'll find the best deals on all the gaming hardware and software that we can find.
The fun doesn't stop there, of course. As the years have gone on, retailers and shoppers alike found that Black Friday just wasn't enough and thus, Cyber Monday was born. The rather unfortunately named follow-up to Black Friday occurs, naturally, after the two day weekend following Black Friday itself and usually means online retailers can offer up a brand new range of products, bundles and price cuts. Don't let the name fool you, though - just like Black Friday, Cyber Monday is rarely ever restricted to one day of sales. Instead, you should expect at least a week of new offers.
As for more hardware based deals, here's what we've found so far.

This Black Friday, we are likely to see a lot of multi-format games seeing huge discounts on PC.

When it comes to hardware, the biggest components likely to see discounts this year are graphics cards, monitors, and virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
