Today’s best bargain is a little beauty if you’re looking to tablet yourself up (not in an overdosey way) and join the hip, modern crowd, but without splashing out a pile of dough on something that might break when your fat uncle sits on it.
If you’ve hung on and avoided buying the year’s big games when they’ve been released at full price, now is the time for you to swoop in and clean up, with many of them being slashed in price ahead of Christmas.
Black Friday? It’s dead to us. A mere raindrop when compared to the waterfall of bargains that is CYBER MONDAY! Yes, it’s making us a bit embarrassed that we even got excited about Black Friday, such is the wealth of special offers available today.

Not to be out-done by the likes of Comet; PC World and Currys are holding a three-day sale from 3pm on Thursday 24th through till midnight on "Cyber" Monday 28th November. Apparently over £1m worth of products will be discounted.
Clearly envious of the masses of coverage gained by the US Black Friday retail sales, UK electrical chain Comet is having a sale of its own. It's Five Day Frenzy is offering different discounted electric things every day. [Comet]
Christmas is coming and the console price war is hotting up. Unlike a real war though, there won’t be any casualties, no use of dirty bombs and no risible charity singles to raise funds for the ‘heroes’.
