It is a good time to bulk up your collection with the latest hits. Look for consoles that include free video games. If you have a console, you can get up to 50 percent off recent titles.

Bundle up for the best deals if you’re ready to get your game on this Black Friday, says DealNews.com.

Prices are plummeting for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 console bundles, says the online retailer and Money Talks News partner.

“Console bundles are the best way to score savings on the most recent 2015 titles, with release dates in October and November,” DealNews says.

Sony recently cut the price of PS4 bundles to $350, it says, predicting Black Friday deals starting at $300.

It expects the same price for the Xbox One 500 GB holiday bundle, with a 1TB console bundle at $350.

You might also find consoles at list price but with merchants sweetening the pot with a $50 gift card, DealNews says.

One way it says to know if the deal is good:

“Always do the math and compare it to console-only deals; if you’d end up paying more than $60 per game in a given bundle, it’s not worth your cash.”

Got a console, but you’re looking for games?

“Black Friday is the perfect time to bulk up your collection with this year’s latest hits,” DealNews says.

Console video games are discounted at predictable rates (except Nintendo, which doesn’t discount much at all). Games released from January to May will hit $30 around Black Friday — Dying Light and Mortal Kombat X, released in January and April respectively, are already there, it says. Games with a June to October release will fall to $40, while November titles could go as low as $45. The best price Nintendo fans can expect is $50, or $10 off list, DealNews says.

PC gamers will see some lower prices, it says. Games released between January and May will drop to $20; June to October, $30. November PC releases will be priced like console games, with $45 the best price.
