Cyber Monday gaming deals still live

Consoles and VR Headsets

PlayStation 5 console with God of War Ragnarok (opens in new tab)

PlayStation 5 console with God of War Ragnarok | AU$904 AU$888 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$16)

A saving of AU$16 seems like very little and certainly this saving of pocket money isn't much on paper, but considering that this is the first kind of discount we've ever seen on the PS5 console it does just enough to raise the eyebrows. Stock of the PS5 has also been an ongoing issue as we know, and yet here it is for you to get your hands on (with newly launched GOTY contender God of War: Ragnarok no less) if you have the cash to splash this Black Friday.

Nintendo Switch OLED (opens in new tab)

Nintendo Switch OLED | AU$539 AU$479 on Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$60)

Considering a Nintendo Switch OLED? It's a slightly disappointing discount especially considering we saw some better savings in the weeks leading up to Black Friday, but a discount is a discount. There's no guarantee stock will last here given the Switch OLED's popularity, so if you're keen it's worth jumping on to snag a saving.

Note: The Neon Switch OLED is out of stock, with this deal and price applying to the OLED console in White.

Nintendo Switch Console (Neon) with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3 Month Switch Online Subscription (opens in new tab)

Nintendo Switch Console (Neon) with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe + 3 Month Switch Online Subscription | AU$469.95 AU$379 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$90.95)

Get your hands on the base Switch console with a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a three month subscription to Switch Online thrown into the mix for just AU$379 when you take advantage of this Cyber Monday saving. Unless you're looking to primarily play your Switch as a handheld console, this base console still remains a very solid and more affordable option for Nintendo gaming.

Gaming Laptops

Razer Blade 14 (opens in new tab)

Razer Blade 14 (6900HX, 16GB, 1TB, RTX 3070 Ti) | AU$4,499 AU$2,999 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,500)

The Razer Blade 14 comes in as one of the more lightweight gaming laptops, but this one doesn't lack for power at all, coming with a generously fast CPU and GPU with a 165Hz Display. Blade laptops are a premium option that come with a predictable premium price, so any time you see one landing a discount as high as AU$1,500 it's worth a look.

Gigabyte Aero 16 YE5 (i9-12900HK, RTX 3080 Ti, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD) (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Aero 16 YE5 (i9-12900HK, RTX 3080 Ti, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD) | AU$7,399 AU$4,999 at Scorptec (opens in new tab) (save AU$2,400)

It won't come cheaply, but the Gigabyte Aero is a seriously impressive laptop, particularly when you take its stunning UHD+ OLED display into account. It's in large part aimed towards catching the eyes of creators, but as you'd expect from Gigabyte it also has a lot to offer the PC gamer. Plus, you'll get a bonus Gigabyte M28U 4K Monitor (opens in new tab) thrown in for free on redemption.

Deal ends 11:59PM December 31.

MSI Stealth 15M Gaming Laptop (15.6-in, i7-1280P, RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) | (opens in new tab)

MSI Stealth 15M Gaming Laptop (15.6-in, i7-1280P, RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) | AU$2,529 AU$1,949 (opens in new tab) (save AU$580)

If you're looking for a high performance gaming laptop at a reasonable price point and perfect for easy transport, the MSI Stealth is your dream come true. A 12th Gen i7 and RTX 3060 offer quality gaming performance, while the IPS 1080p 144Hz screen delivers both dynamic colours and an exceptional ability to keep up with your gameplay. And as such a lightweight laptop, it's also ideal for doubling as your go to office companion as well.

Deal ends Sunday December 4 or while stocks last.

MSI Creator Z16 Hiroshi Fujiwara (opens in new tab)

MSI Creator Z16 Hiroshi Fujiwara | (i7, 16GB RAM, RTX 3060) | AU$3,999 AU$2,699 (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,300)

This special edition MSI gaming laptop manages to land a saving of AU$1,300 all up for what also happens to be an admirably spec'ed computer particularly for its existing price point. An i7-11800H, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD and RTX 3060Q combine to offer a laptop as capable in the workplace as in the gaming den, but it's the 165Hz Mini LED display that grabs the real headlines.

Deal ends Sunday December 4 or while stocks last.

Gaming Monitors

Alienware 25 24.5-inch Gaming Monitor | (opens in new tab)

Alienware 25 24.5-inch Gaming Monitor | AU$748 AU$448 at Dell (opens in new tab) (Save AU$300)

It might not be the biggest screen, but what it lacks in size this monitor more than makes up for in performance. A 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms IPS response and dynamic picture quality features here, offering opportunities to elevate your gaming experience through premium quality in a more humble package.

Dell G2722HS 27-inch Gaming Monitor (opens in new tab)

Dell G2722HS 27-inch Gaming Monitor | AU$498.30 AU$298.30 at Dell (opens in new tab) (save AU$200)

If you're looking to add a generously sized screen to your gaming setup without sacrificing too much on quality or taking too great a hit to your bank account, this Cyber Monday saving is for you. With a 1ms response time and 165Hz refresh rate in a 27-inch FHD screen with 1920x1080 resolution, at this discounted price you'd struggle to find better.

LG 38WN95C 38in Ultrawide Curved Monitor | (opens in new tab)
Best Price

LG 38WN95C 38in Ultrawide Curved Monitor | AU$2,199 AU$1,499 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (Save AU$700)

Formerly AU$1,599 a few days ago, this price for this monitor now tumbles to its lowest price ever on Amazon for Cyber Monday. As a curved monitor, the 38-inch screen feels even larger, with a 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and HDR600 support meaning its size doesn't come at any cost to performance. Creators in particular might love this, but as a gaming monitor it's certainly no slouch.

Game Friendly TVs

LG G2 55-inch Evo Gallery Edition OLED TV (opens in new tab)

LG G2 55-inch Evo Gallery Edition OLED TV | AU$3,695 AU$2,990 at Appliance Central (opens in new tab) (save AU$705)

The LG G2 is one hell of a TV full stop, with a bright, dynamic display, premium decor-friendly design and outstanding gaming support. It's designed to be mounted to the wall so doesn't come with a stand, but the LG G2 is a perfect companion to any next-gen console. This deal was over AU$500 better over Black Friday weekend, but still offers plenty of value at this price.

65-inch AU$4,995 AU$4,080 (opens in new tab) (save AU$915)
77-inch AU$8,995 AU$7,550 (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,445)

LG CS 65-inch Self Lit OLED Smart TV | AU$3,695 AU$2,499 at PowerlandAU eBay (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,196 with code) 

Only new to the market, LG's budget-friendly alternative to their dynamite C2 range offers most of the premium features that can be found in LG's top-range C2 but at a much friendlier price. And that's even before considering this brilliant Cyber Monday deal, saving you AU$1,096 on this stellar screen plus an additional AU$100 with code SNSNOV at checkout. It's a perfect pairing with any console both from a performance and price point of view, so if you need a new home screen act fast for this one.

TCL 75-inch C735 QLED TV | AU$2,799 AU$1,625 at Appliance Central (opens in new tab) (save AU$1,174)

While it might be a generation behind the latest TCL C*35 model, the TCL C735 is nonetheless one of the better home screens you can buy within its price range particularly for gamers looking for performance value. The Quantum Dot technology here delivers vibrant, dynamic colours, partnering perfectly with HDR10+ capability, Dolby Atmos sound and very solid gaming support features.

Savings also on offer for the 55-inch (opens in new tab) screen.

Cyber Monday gaming deals in Australia - what to expect

When will the Cyber Monday gaming deals start?

This year's Black Friday gaming deals kicked off on November 25 and many will roll over into Cyber Monday, but just as with previous years we're seeing savings unique to Cyber Monday start to emerge already. Many of these deals will conclude at 11:59PM on Cyber Monday (November 28), so it's very much a case of get it while it's hot.

What will the best Cyber Monday gaming deals be?

While games themselves get plenty of great Cyber Monday gaming deals, there's plenty of chances to save on peripherals, particularly on items like gaming laptops and TVs which are more likely candidates to land significant savings numbering into the thousands.

Not quite a deal, but we've seen PS5 stock pop up among the Black Friday and Cyber Monday gaming deals, including stock retailing at RRP (an achievement in itself). It will be hoped these stocks last and that the elusive Xbox Series X might join them, but that remains to be seen.

Will there be PS5 and Xbox Series X Cyber Monay gaming deals?

Discounts on PS5 or Xbox Series X games and accessories are already there for the taking, while the Xbox Series S console has landed a saving of AU$100. 

For the top-range next-gen consoles, it's a different story. Even though we were hoping we might see discounts on these ones, that was probably too much to hope for given the stock issues still aren't fully resolved. Still, what we are seeing so far is the PS5 popping up with stock at RRP, which is quite rare in itself.

The Black Friday gaming deals aren't going to be the only good offers for the rest of the year: make sure you check out our regularly updated best gaming deals in Australia (opens in new tab) page.
