I'm Not Sure Currys Understands What Black Friday Actually Is

By Tom Pritchard on at

If you're an Xbox One owner hoping to get yourself a bargain copy of the new Assassin's Creed game, Origins, you might want to avoid Currys. As you can see above, they don't seem to understand that Black Friday is about deals - not bumping up your prices to laughable levels.

Oh so charging £999 for a copy of a game, even one that's brand new, is clearly the result of a glitch. But that doesn't mean we can turn round and laugh at it, seeing as how retailers insist that Black Friday is all about the sales. Currys doesn't seem to carry the game for PS4 or PC, though, otherwise I'd wonder if it was a disgruntled employee who is more a fan of Sony than Microsoft.

Fortunately Currys does have Origins available in Xbox One bundles for far less than a grand, the main one being a 500GB S console with Origins, Doom, and Fallout 4  for £170. If you'd prefer a PS4, you can get a 500GB console with FIFA 18, Fallout 4, Gran Turismo Sport, and Knowledge is Power for £200.

There are too many deals to list, though, so you can check them all out on the Currys website.
