Black Friday, the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States, has become synonymous with absurd discounts for a wide array of gadgets, technology and (for you gamers out there) games.
And while it might be at its best in the US, it hasn’t stopped local stores from participating in the culture of it all; it’s something we’re completely on board with – go figure.
So we thought we’d help our fellow gamers out by pointing out those retailers participating, where you might score a few fantastic deals.
One of the finest purveyors of pre-built rigs and hardware components, Evetech’s Black Friday deal is much more a black weekend.
Starting on Friday and extending until Midnight on Sunday, there’s sure to be some good deals awaiting.
Dealing in locally sold as well as imported electronics, books, fan paraphernalia, games and everything else you might need, Raru’s Black Friday deals last for the single day.
It starts at 7AM and runs until 10PM, so be sure to check it out.
As one of the country’s largest retailers of digital goods and technology, Dion Wired’s participation in Black Friday is exciting to be sure.
Having started on Tuesday, November 24th, FirstShop is already in the swing of things, and their tech deals will continue until December 1st.
While BidorBuy is offering a lot more than we’re interested in, there are a few consoles, notebooks and other odds and ends with serious discounts attached to their usual prices.
You’ve got until Sunday.

They’re not saying what, but the deal does last just the one day. Tomorrow.
One of our most mentioned online technology and PC component retailers Wootware will also be celebrating Black Friday, and it’ll last the one day.
Wootware have also mentioned that competitions will be announced on the day, so we’d advise watching the site regularly.
Perhaps our favourite online retailer, Rebeltech will also be participating in Black Friday; it too will last just the one day.
Going by the store’s past, expect some real zingers tomorrow.
Because of course Xbox is going to take part in Black Friday.
