While we have already detailed what to expect from PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Black Friday deals, we now have the GameStop 2018 Holiday Gift Guide. Every year around this time (one day later than last year), GameStop drops its holiday book filled with what it expects to be the hottest items for the holidays. While there are no deals listed here, it does give us a good idea of what to expect come later this month along with some great ideas for gamer gifts.
Consoles & Big Time Release
As expected the GameStop 2018 Holiday Gift Guide is filled to the brim with consoles, games and much more across all platforms. Pone surprising omission here is the high-end PS4 Pro and Xbox One X console bundles. We expect configurations for both to see massive price drops over the next couple weeks and beyond.
Nintendo Handhelds Live On!
While many have started to write-off Nintendo’s 2DS/3DS handheld lineup, GameStop has dedicated two full pages to the New Nintendo 2DS XL bundled with Mario Kart 7, accessories/cases and games.
Gaming Merch for Days
Along with huge spreads for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (you can see yesterday’s massive drop of details on the game right here), Pokemon Let’s Go and Red Dead Redemption 2, there’s some amazing merchandise in here as well. All of the aforementioned titles along with Fallout 76, Spider-Man, Call of Duty Black Ops 4, Overwatch and more have full page coverage for some interesting swag and add-ons on top of the actual games themselves.
Whether it’s the brass RDR2 Zippo lighter or the giant Snorlax Pokemon bean bag chair (currently on sale for $113, Reg, $150), these add-on items for games can be a great idea for gifts. Most gamers on your list are already going to have the games they like most so some extra swag on the side can be one of the best ways to put a smile on a gamer’s face this holiday season.
Other notable mentions in the GameStop 2018 Holiday Gift Guide include PSVR gear, controllers of all kinds, Xbox gift cards, Ps Plus memberships and loads of gaming headsets.
Here’s everything you need to know about GameStop Black Friday 2018 including early deals, free shipping, gift cards and more. And here’s how to prepare for ALL of the biggest Black Friday game deals from Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon and GameStop.
