Finding deals during Black Friday 2021 can be a bit of a challenge this holiday season. Last year’s shortage of brand new consoles hasn’t improved at all since we reported on it in 2020. While we’ve been tracking where you can buy a brand new Nintendo Switch OLED, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X, you may have better luck buying accessories for those consoles.
