Before black Friday and Cyber Monday, there was a lot of gaming deals swirling around the internet, like the dust created by the release of two new consoles: PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Now that the latest iterations have been released, previous-generation games are seeing discounts in everywhere.
