Black Friday offers tons of discounts and offers on gaming consoles and new videogames, but even some major sale items don't beat the likes of CeX on price.
With Playstation 5 and Xbox Series consoles in short supply, gamers will focus their efforts on nabbing next-gen consoles when the big day finally arrives.
In the meantime, your local CeX is a goldmine for discounted games, and you can start building up your library early before Black Friday on November 26.
Second-hand games play just as well as brand new but with big price drops, and it means you'll be all ready to go on the day when your shiny new console finally arrives.
Let's take a look at some of the best deals at CeX on Playstation, Nintendo, and Xbox. It's worth remembering that these are nationally set prices from CeX, and your local store might have variations or even better deals.
Beat the queues before Black Friday by nabbing some bargain PS5 and PS4 games
Since the PS5's release many gamers have baulked at the high price tag for exclusive titles, some of which now fetch upwards of £70.
If you're planning to pick up a PS5 on Black Friday and are looking to get your hands on some next-gen games ahead of time, CeX is a great place to start.
These are some of the major deals you can get on PS5 games at CeX:
- Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart – £40 (£59.99 new)
- Demon's Souls – £48 (£69.99 new)
- Returnal – £52 (£69.99)
- DEATHLOOP – £48 (£59.99 new)
- Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut £48 (£69.99 new)

One of the best parts about the PS5 is that it's backwards-compatible with the PS4, and since its release, the price of PS4 games at CEX has absolutely plummeted.
Many of these games still look great and even receive a couple of enhancements when hooked up to the PS5.
For example, Red Dead Redemption 2, which is still retailing for £54.99 on the Playstation Store, can be nabbed at CeX for an amazing £15.
Exclusive titles like the Last of Us Part II and Death Stranding are also bargains, so it could be a safe bet to pick up a mixture of PS5 and PS4 titles from CeX before you pick up your new console on Black Friday.
CeX deals on the Nintendo Switch beat the high street on Black Friday – you can even nab a Wii for peanuts
The Nintendo Switch was a huge winner at Christmas last year, and now that there's three models—the OLED, Lite, and standard—this year is likely to be no different.
While it's always nice getting a shiny new console in the Black Friday sales, second-hand Nintendo Switch consoles can be just as good because you can replace the Joy-Con controllers easily.
It's also worth looking at bundles, which include the console, controllers, and a game of choice.

Sometimes Nintendo even theme the controllers around the game in the bundle, such as with the £320 Animal Crossing console.
CeX often refurbishes their second-hand consoles and replaces the controllers anyway, which means you'll be getting the console like new.
- The 'standard' Nintendo Switch: £210 (£259 – £380 new)
- The Switch Lite: £160 (£194-197 new)
Unfortunately, due to high demand, the OLED Switch is currently the same price at CeX as it is brand new, so you might as well buy it in a Black Friday sale.
If you want to get your kids into some easy, family-friendly gaming, the Nintendo Wii is also still an amazing console with tons of cheap games. You can nab one for about £40 at CeX, or less than the price of a PS5 game.

Major savings on Xbox games and accessories at CeX – but consoles are thin on the ground
Just like the much sought-after Playstation 5, the new Xbox Series X | S consoles are in extremely short supply, which means you're unlikely to find a bargain at CeX (who sell a top of the range Xbox Series X for about £650). You're better off buying the console new—if you can find it—on a Black Friday deal.
However, that doesn't mean CeX isn't a treasure trove for Xbox gamers.
Almost all of the games on the new Series X | S can be played on the previous-gen Xbox One, and they've received tons of discounts in recent months. Great offers include:
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice: £28 (£59.99 new)
- Crash Bandicoot 4: £30 (£35 new)
- Tony Hawk's Pro Skater: £22 (£36.99 new)
Unlike Sony, Microsoft even offer free graphical upgrades if you decide to use the last-gen games on a newer console, so it's worth picking up these Xbox One bargains and banking them until you update.
