With Black Friday quickly approaching, savvy gamers are on the hunt for this year's best deals. This weekend is the perfect opportunity to take the plunge and upgrade hardware, accessories, or even add a few new Outfox titles to your glorious gaming catalog. Here's a look at my top picks for the biggest shopping day of the year. 

Expand Your Catalog

Rainbow Six Siege: Operation White Noise is right around the corner, and the last season of Year 2 launched into test servers. As a game that continues to trend with concurrent players on Steam, and a first look into the highly anticipated Year 3 of Rainbow Six given this week, now is a fantastic time to team up and stand your ground. Look out for all copies of Rainbow Six Siege to be on sale directly through uPlay.

Along with beefing up your gaming catalogs this holiday season, I'm sure you are on the hunt for a few accessories to spice up your gaming life. From high refresh gaming monitors, to the latest and greatest gaming routers, here are a few top picks from NeweggMicro CenterRazer and Amazon to take your gaming experience to the next level.

The majority of these deals are available online so you don't have to battle any long lines at your local store. Personally, I will be on the prowl for a new gaming router, a fresh set of sticks for some quality platformer/racing action, and maybe even a new G-Sync monitor. With the WRT32X at a historic low, now is the perfect time to pounce on a quality router designed to improve my network performance in-game. Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at Outfox and have a sweet haul this Black Friday! Let us know on Twitter if you snag any of these deals or see any other irresistible finds.
