Overwatch Origins Edition is on sale as one of the Black Friday deals in the US that you should buy immediately for PS4, Xbox One for a gaming PC.
Normally $59.99, this Blizzard Entertainment-made game is almost half off its original price: Overwatch is now $34.99 at Amazon and many other American retailers.
A price drop by $25 is great news for anyone who hasn’t tries out this first-person shooter game that came out in May. It’s completely different from every other Blizzard game – makers of StarCraft and World of WarCraft – and simply a delightful diversion.
In addition to being available on two video game consoles and the PC, this Black Friday deal is actually repeated: $34.99 at Walmart, $34.99 at Toys R Us, $35 at Target (yes, a penny for expensive), $34.99 at GameStop.
Just don’t buy it at Walmart if you want it for Xbox One or the PC. While it’s just $35 at Walmart for PS4, right now the game retails for $66.60 on the Xbox One and $66.42 on the PC. Clearly someone didn’t tell 66% of these Walmart days that prices go down on Black Friday.
Have an Xbox One or PS4 bundle while you’re at it
Origin is best enjoyed on a PC, in our opinion, as much as we like the Xbox One and PS4. Using the mouse and keyboard is just a faster way to shoot and strafe.
You can always get a new computer bundled with Origin this Black Friday, just in case you need a new PC rig to run the fast-paced Blizzard game.
