If you're looking for a Black Friday break on the brand-new Nintendo Wii U or just-released games such as Halo 4 and Call of Duty Black Ops 2, you might be out of luck. But, just about everything else in the world of console gaming is, well, fair game.

It's hard to imagine that anyone who wants an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or Nintendo Wii doesn't have one already. But just in case you need one or more to fill out your hardware collection or are looking for a gift, there are some deals to be had. Various Xbox 360 configs are going for $149 to $200, and the PS3 for $199 -- all of which feature some kind of games/accessories bundle (such as the Microsoft Kinect camera).

Here's a quick tip: skip the $89 Nintendo Wii I've seen advertised from a few retailers and look to the $99 Wii Sports bundle instead, which includes both of the Wii Sports games. That deal, and my other Black Friday favorites are listed here , but note that many of the onsale prices won't be active until November 23.

If you spot a Black Friday game deal worth sharing, list it in the comments section below.
