You can't beat relaxing at home with a blockbuster game after Thanksgiving... unless of course you're relaxing at home and hitting up the Cyber Monday sales online. A new game console means hundreds of hours of entertainment with the best games. And, with the deals as low as they are this year, a console bought during Cyber Monday means hundreds of dollars of savings.

This year the biggest names in console gaming , namely Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox, have deals that include their consoles as well as bundled games, all for big savings. 

We've collected some of the best deals we've seen so far below. Bear in mind:

  • The deals below are current as of Monday, Nov. 26 at 8:30 p.m. PT.
  • CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.
  • We link to the current listing at the retailer's website where one is available, but some of these deals are going fast. We'll keep updating as things change.

Best PlayStation 4 deals

This bundle isn't a Cyber Monday exclusive, but it is one of the few PS4 bundles remaining after Black Friday and Cyber Monday shoppers have run through various stores. GameStop's bundle included a $50 gift card, though it appears to be sold out as of 10 a.m. PT Monday. Target has 15 percent off across the store today, which works out to a hefty $60 on this $400 bundle.

We were hoping this would happen, and we weren't alone. This deal briefly showed up Monday morning before Walmart ran out of inventory.

This deal has expired.

If you're going to be getting these bundles and games, you'll likely want to play multiplayer to take advantage of Sony's monthly selection of free games. This year's Black Friday discounts knock $20 off the usual $60 12-month PlayStation Plus subscription.

This deal is live online now.

You can bag a variety of bundles with Sony's VR headset at major retailers. Games include Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Firewall and Creed: Rise to Glory, and retailers include Walmart (below) as well as Best Buy and GameStop.

The deal is out of stock online now.

If you haven't bought a next-generation console yet, here's one of the best prices yet to convince you to pony up. This is the 1TB PS4 Slim version with the excellent Spider-Man, all for $200. It's been available since last Sunday at Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Amazon and elsewhere, and it's been going in and out of stock online. As of now, Best Buy is listing it as sold out, but check back later.

This deal has sold out.

Best Xbox One deals

If Xbox is more your speed, this deal can save you a bundle. It's currently available pretty much everywhere and, unlike the PlayStation bundles, it doesn't seem to be selling out. Go figure.

We've seen this Xbox One with Minecraft bundle in other stores, but this deal lets you add Forza Horizon 4 to the bundle for just 12 bucks.

Here's the same Xbox One with Minecraft deal, but in this case you get an extra controller for free. With this deal, you'll need to enter the code "CM18" to get the controller.

If you want the more powerful Xbox One X 1TB by itself, you can get it for $100 off from numerous retailers now.

Best Nintendo Switch deals

And since you're going to want more games than what comes with that new console bundle, check out our guides to the best games currently available on the PS4Xbox One and Switch.
