Here at The Nerd Stash we have endeavored to take a little of the legwork out of the treasure hunt for you, and have been diligently exploring the vastness of the internet for those must-have mega deals.
We’ve covered as many bases here as possible, from PlayStation presents to Xbox excellence, and Nintendo niceties to board game brilliance. Every corner of the nerd-themed landscape has been scoured to bring you the good stuff that makes life that little bit sweeter.
So, without further ado, join us as we dust off the bank card and prepare to enhance our game-playing, nerd infused lives with some uber-cool new goodies. Onwards!
PS4 Console Deals
If you haven’t already jumped into the action on Sony’s magnificent console, then Black Friday is likely to be the perfect time to embrace the glorious gaming on offer over on PlayStation 4. Bunde deals this year have been a little thin on the ground where PS4 is concerned, but, just as we thought the hunt was up, our spidey senses caught sight of this little gem.
Virtual Reality is in a much healthier Black Friday shape. It appears that if ever there was a time to get lost in some impressive new VR worlds, then that time is now. The price of PlayStation VR has fallen steadily over the past year, but Black Friday brings the biggest drop yet, as a number of outlets are selling some VR magic for just $199.99! That is a virtual steal in the real world.

PS4 Games and Goodies
Where would we be without a healthy supply of games to play on?

There are some impressive numbers within the Xbox deals, and even a chance to shave some hard-earned cash off the price of an X!

Again, to truly let our consoles shine we must feed them games, just not after midnight…wait, that’s Mogwai, so forget that and feed your Xbox all night long, pull all-nighter games sessions and shout, “Sleep is for the weak!” just don’t get them wet, that’s Mogwai and Xbox. (Steps away praying a Gremlins reference is still relevant in 2018).

And there we have it! A decent selection of treats going at some reasonable prices for this year’s Black Friday sales. It isn’t perhaps a bumper year for bargain hunters, and finding a decent PS4 Pro deal was particularly fruitless, however, there are options out there for those looking to bring a new console into their lives, or for those seeking to expand the games library. Most importantly, however, the beauty of shopping from your living room far outweighs the nightmare of hitting those real-life Black Friday free-for-alls! Happy Shopping folks!
