The Amazon Black Friday 2016 sale will feature incredible video game hardware deals.
Black Friday 2016 will bring fantastic deals on video game hardware. Microsoft and Sony have introduced new slim version of their video game consoles. These new smaller consoles have a lower price point and make the original consoles look old. Retailers want to get rid of all their inventory of original Xbox One consoles and original Sony PS4 consoles this Holiday season. Black Friday is the perfect time for that.

Amazon will be one of the best stores to score discounted video game consoles. On the Labor Day 2016 weekend, the Xbox One has been on sale with $50 discounts or gift cards and Microsoft threw in a select game.
This means the Xbox One was already on sale for $199 on Labor Day 2016 and the Xbox One S for $249. We expect to see Xbox One Black Friday 2016 deal at $149 and the best Xbox One S deal on Black Friday 2016 to be priced at $199. The discounts could be gift cards or flat out price cuts.
Microsoft is far behind Sony in market share. The Holidays are the only time that can have a big impact on market share. Expect again like last year, the biggest Black Friday video game hardware discounts on the Microsoft consoles.
The Sony PS4 Slim will be announced on September 7. Sony will also likely announce the new more powerful PS4 Neo. We will update this report as with the impact of Sony's announcement. And of course this is the place to find the best Amazon Black Friday 2016 video game deals as soon as they are announced.
