The holiday season is here, and Christmas is in sight. There will be a lot of last-minute deals in the days before the big ... day. This weekend we decided to highlight some of the best video game deals and sales we're seeing. Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Microsoft, and GameStop are all having Christmas sales on consoles and games. Most of these deals should go through Christmas, and some may continue as the rush of after-Christmas sales hits. Be sure to check out our many other Holiday Guides, as well.
