2022 Black Friday Video Game Hauls

What did you pick on sale this Black Friday season? This is about the only time of the year that I buy video games unless some indie titles go on sale. I usually stock up and don't buy anything again until the next Black Friday.

I picked up:

PlayStation Direct
Spider-man: Miles Morales PS5 $19.99
Sackboy: A Big Adventure PS5 $19.99
Horizon: Forbidden West PS4 (free PS5 upgrade) $29.99
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart $29.99

Amazon
Sonic Frontiers PS5 $35
Life is Strange: True Colors PS5 $19.99
Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut PS5 $29.99
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cowabunga Collection PS4 $19.99

I'm surprised that I didn't buy any Switch titles this year. The only ones I really want are Triangle Strategy and Live A Live and they haven't gone on sale.

I finally bought a Switch. I got the Mario Kart 8 deal and plan on getting Smash Ultimate, a few Pokemon games, and probably an FPS

I highly recommend Super Mario Odyssey. It's a great game. One of the best Mario games ever made.

Re: 2022 Black Friday Video Game Hauls

Leading up to the BF sales, I grabbed The Quarry (XSX) for $20 from Walmart.
Not on sale, but I caved and got the Atari 50 (Switch) w/ Steelbook at full price.
Yesterday, I traded in a couple Switch games and picked up Sonic Frontiers (XSX) for $39 from GameStop, but my store credit covered the entire cost. It also came with a fancy Steelbook.

That's probably it for me this time around. Maybe I'll go get that Cowabunga Collection... I used to love a bunch of those game, and I had a blast playing the new game, Shredder's Revenge, but I'm just not sure the old games will hold up.

I’m a bit disappointed there will be no real discounts on Game Pass Ultimate this year.

I guess PlayStation Premium for $90. God of War (2018) was $9.99. Not sure if Black Friday.

You get God of War 2018 for free with the PlayStation Plus collection. You'll have access to it as long as you subscribe to PlayStation Plus. Why did you buy it?

You won't ever lose that game. Sony owns the studio that makes it. Once the free games are in your library, you don't lose them.

Are the Ratchet and Clanks and Uncharted never going away as well?

The studios that make them are owned by Sony too. I don't see them leaving PlayStation. It's your money. Spend it how you wish.

Re: 2022 Black Friday Video Game Hauls

I mean obviously if I knew they would never leave as happens with some Xbox games, I wouldn’t have bought it. I’m not trying to go bankrupt. Just didn’t really know. Now, I do. Thank you, truly.

I sill haven't played my purchase from last year (Mass Effect series remaster) but I bit on The Last of Us II ($14.99CDN) as I loved the first one and hadn't snagged the sequel yet.

Unless your gifting it, the best deal by far is still to let your sub expire, get regular Gold on the cheap (up to three years), then upgrade.

This is true for the current Plus discount too (though not as dramatic). I think there's a cap on how much an upgrade will cost so if you're going for multi years and you're on Essential, just add on a few years of Essential at a discount then upgrade to Extra.

I recently bought three years of live cheap, like $30 a year iirc, some random online store. Every time I go to upgrade it shows me a price of $14.99 per month all the way up to the final confirm purchase screen.

It's a little wonky but IIRC, what you do is buy up to 2 years and 11 months of Gold, then buy a 1 month Gamepass sub and apply it to your account and it'll convert the Gold to Gamepass 1:1 (unless they truly closed this)

The FAQ still says this:
Joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate automatically upgrades your existing Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass for Console, PC Game Pass, and/or EA Play (purchased through Xbox) memberships.
edited to add: and it seems like a one month gamepass sub is just a buck right now?

Re: 2022 Black Friday Video Game Hauls

Yeah, their wording during the process is contradictory, one page makes it look I’d get charged the full $15 every month, but now my account page shows me with Game Pass Ultimate and my next charge not for three years. Couldn’t do the $1 trick again, apparently that only works once.

My Xbox Live codes were $27 a year, so three years of Game Pass Ultimate for under $100 total is pretty sweet.

Thanks fujishig

Ah, right, I signed in from an incognito browser to check the upgrade path so that must be why I still saw it for 1 buck. Congrats on getting it to work! It really is just an insane deal.

Nothing for me...got God of War: Ragnarök day one...Warhammer Inquisitor: Martyr PS5 upgrade two weeks ago...The Witcher 3 has a free PS5 upgrade in two weeks....I had hope to grab a PC Deal but everything I saw the Case was so-so, Motherboard avg or below, cooling iffy, etc...I'll hold off and see what the new CPU & GPU's price wise along with the Motherboards which are commanding a premo price right now...as long as I get something in time for Starfield, I'm good....

Picked up three PS5 games for $10 (I had $75 in rewards):
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart - $30
  • Ghost of Tushima Director’s Cut - $30
  • Uncharted Lost Legacy - $20
That does it for me.

Grabbed $30 in PSN cards at Dollar General for 20% off then used that to buy:

Tiny Tina Wonderlands (PS5)
Last of us 2 (PS4)

Also bought the Quarry last week.

Surprisingly little for me! Just Persona 5 Royal (PS5; steelbook) and TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection (XSX).

I would’ve picked up The Quarry (XSX) but missed out on the best sales, and I’m backlogged enough that it’ll be on sale again by the time I could get to it anyway.

I also upped PS Essential for another year and am hoping for a decent Game Pass Ultimate sale, although if we haven’t gotten one yet…
