This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

Cyber Monday is here after a long Black Friday weekend. Video games are in the spotlight with the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, but unlike those sold-out consoles, there are a lot of games on sale that you can actually buy. The Xbox One still has life yet, and the Nintendo Switch continues to release great games. Keep an eye on this page for the best deals for Cyber Monday and if you have a PS4 or PS5, we have a list of the top games on sale for the PlayStation platform

And if you’re looking to buy the latest Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 consoles, you should peruse our stock-check stories: 

If you’re lucky enough to get one of those holy grail consoles, do keep in mind that physical games for the PS4 will play on the PS5 (as long as it’s the model with the Blu-ray drive), and games for the Xbox One will work with the Series X (but not the Series S, due to its absence of a media drive). Bear in mind also that many of these games are available as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which you can get for three months for $20 right now.
