Popular games for the PS4 and Xbox One are steeply discounted today at Amazon and Best Buy — far steeper than Black Friday ads originally indicated. Borderlands 3 for the PS4 (Best Buy, Amazon) and Xbox One (Best Buy, Amazon) is down to $27.99 from $59.99. Red Dead Redemption 2 for the PS4 (Best Buy) and Xbox One (Best Buy) is just $24.99.

If you’re on PC, you can pick up the excellent 2019 Resident Evil 2 remake for $20 from Steam’s Autumn sale. And while you’re at it, consider picking up a Steam Controller. It’s your last chance, and while it’s not a fit for everyone, it has a few neat, unique abilities.

Today, Amazon knocked down the price of a bundle that includes the Ring Video Doorbell 2 and the Echo Show 5 smart display. It’s $139, which is a mere $10 more than the doorbell usually costs by itself.

  • The Apple Watch Series 5 (40mm, GPS) is $354.99 (Amazon, Costco), which is $24 off of its The 44mm version Series 5 is $384.99 (Amazon, Costco), which is also $24 cheaper than usual. At Amazon, you’ll need to proceed to checkout to see the price drop reflected in the total. If you’re not a Costco member, it will tack on a 5 percent fee (amounting to around $20 in this case) to the purchase total.
  • LG’s 55-inch B9 OLED 4K HDR TV is down to $1,199 at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo (normally $1,399). This is the 2019 model, and we had to wait a lot longer for the 2018 model to reach a price this low.
  • Sony’s WH-1000XM3 wireless noise-canceling headphones are down to $278 at Amazon and $279.99 at Best Buy. This matches the best deal that we’ve seen, and if you want to cut out noise and have great sound, these are currently among the best out there.

At the Microsoft Store, the upgrade model with an Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage) costs $799, and it’s bundled with a black Type Cover (usually sold separately).
