Black Friday deals for Wednesday 22nd November

Brought to you by Jelly Deals.

A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.

Once more we return to the vast depths of Black Friday's march towards bigger and bigger discounts. In today's batch of savings, we found everything from digital download PC games to 4K TVs and some rather fancy headphones in there as well. Today also sees the beginning of some of the bigger US offers, as the majority of US-based retailers have held off on early deals, instead opting to discount everything later in the week.

In addition to this roundup, we've got guide pages going through PS4 Black Friday offers, Xbox Black Friday deals, Nintendo Black Friday bundles, PC gaming Black Friday discounts, and a whole lot more. You can also find a lot of non-gaming stuff over at Jelly Deals.

So, without further hesitation, let's take a look at the best Black Friday deals for today. You can even use this handy table of contents thingy here to go straight to the deals you really want.
