Cyber Monday deals are here, and that means you can save quite a bit on tech-related purchases. We already saw some excellent video game deals on Black Friday, but many of them are still in effect — and some other ones just went into effect today. In fact, we’ve discovered many Cyber Monday gaming deals on PS5, Xbox Series X and Switch games under $20.
While you can find great discounts on video games in any price range, $20 seems to be the difference between a considered purchase and an impulse buy. So if you’ve been holding off on getting any of the games we’ve listed below, now is the time; they’re not going to get much cheaper than this for a while.
What's good in today's crop of deals? Highlights include the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves collection for $19 at Best Buy, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for $14 at Target and SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated for $19 at Walmart.
We’ve come up with completely different lists of PS5, Xbox and Switch games, but many of these games are available on multiple consoles. If you see a game you like on a different console, it’s worth clicking through to see if you can still get the deal on a different system.
Cyber Monday deals: PS5 games under $20
Deathloop: was $59 now $19 @ Best Buy
Deathloop was our pick for Game of the Year 2021, and with good reason. This creative time loop adventure casts you as Colt: an amnesiac gunman trapped on the eternally recurring Blackreef Island. The game combines first-person shooting and stealth with open-ended puzzles and sim elements, and the game takes good advantage of the PS5’s DualSense haptics.
God of War: was $19 now $9 @ Target
While God of War (2018) is technically a PS4 game, it does have an optimized PS5 mode — and if you’ve never played it, now is the time. The sequel, God of War Ragnarok, just came out, and you’ll want to experience the first chapter of Kratos’ rebooted story before you see the epic conclusion. In this fantastical action/adventure game, you’ll explore the world of Norse myth, and battle its cruel gods.
Riders Republic: was $59 now $14 @ Target
Riders Republic is a breath of fresh air in a game library that’s packed to the gills with action/adventure games, first-person shooters and RPGs.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection: was $49 now $19 @ Best Buy
The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection combines Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, both of which debuted on the PS4.

Watch Dogs: Legion: was $39 now $11 @ Best Buy
Watch Dogs: Legion has a killer premise: Take control of just about anyone in the whole world.

You can recruit almost anyone you meet into DedSec’s ranks, and everyone has different skills, from hacking, to combat, to medicine.
Cyber Monday deals: Xbox Series X games under $20
Assassins Creed Valhalla: was $59 now $14 @ Target
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the biggest open-world games we’ve seen in the last few years.

You play as a Viking explorer named Eivor, as he explores medieval England and attempts to create a home for his clan.
Grand Theft Auto V: was $38 now $14 @ Target
Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most ambitious open-world crime games on the market, with a huge world to explore and a complex story to experience. You play as three enterprising criminals: Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, each one of whom has a different arc to pursue. This game also gets you access to the wildly popular Grand Theft Auto Online mode.
Halo Infinite: was $59 now $19 @ Target
Perhaps the Xbox Series X’s flagship game, Halo Infinite is an ambitious first-person shooter with a lot to like in both the single-player and multiplayer modes. In the campaign, you’ll play as Master Chief in a semi-open world, exploring with the help of a grappling hook. The multiplayer mode has both casual and competitive play, with plenty of cosmetics to earn.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition: was $39 now $19 @ Target

Resident Evil Village: was $39 now $19 @ Target
Resident Evil Village is the latest entry in Capcom’s long-running survival/horror series, and by all accounts, it’s a pretty solid one.

With action and scares in equal measure, Resident Evil Village is a good bet for horror fans.
Cyber Monday deals: Switch games under $20
Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection: was $39 now $14 @ Best Buy

Hot Wheels Unleashed: was $29 now $19 @ Best Buy
Hot Wheels Unleashed is a kid-friendly racing game that features Hot Wheels cars rather than real-world automobiles.

Just be aware that while the game itself, the microtransactions have the potential to get expensive.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated: was $29 now $19 @ Walmart
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated is a remaster of the popular PS2-era action game.

It’s a kid-friendly platformer that still holds up well for the adults who grew up with it.
Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town: was $29 now $19 @ Best Buy
Story of Seasons is a beloved farming sim series, and Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town is one of its more recent entries.

It’s a chill, relaxing experience with plenty of ways to customize your character and surroundings.
