Presidents Day weekend is upon us, and it’s bringing a ton of sales across tech, gaming, and more. Among all the Presidents Day sales happening this weekend is Best Buy’s, which has just kicked off and features the usual mix of deals on TVs, laptops, appliances, phones, and more. Some solid gaming deals are included in Best Buy’s Presidents Day sale as well, so it’s worth taking a look before the deals end on Monday.
As always, Best Buy has a bunch of 4K TVs on sale, and notably, Vizio’s lineup of OLED 4K TVs are discounted, dropping the 65-inch option to $1,500 while the 55-inch version is down to $1,000. LG OLED TVs are marked down too, with the 65-inch CX Series OLED 4K TV down to $2,000. A couple of gaming laptops are featured as well, including the Dell G5 15.6-inch gaming laptop with an AMD Radeon RX 5600M graphics card for $850. Apple users have a variety of deals available as well, from MacBook Pros to iPads.
In terms of game deals, it’s somewhat slim pickings, but there are a few nice options on sale for Presidents Day. 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim launched only on PS4 last year and may have flown under your radar, but it’s a brilliant mashup of visual novel narrative gameplay with real-time tactics combat. It’s down to $40 this weekend at Best Buy. The game is the first new release from Vanillaware in several years, ditching its usual brawling combat.
Ubisoft’s latest major releases, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Watch Dogs Legion are all marked down as well. This includes discounts on the PS5-specific versions of these games, though they come with free next-gen upgrades as well for those who don’t have the new consoles yet. Immortal was a big surprise in late 2020, iterating on elements that made Breath of the Wild great.
