The gaming industry is guilty of providing many deals that cannot be denied and neglected. Xbox, PlayStation and Steam are some of the most prominent names. However, it is not just video gaming that has special Black Friday discounts and offers, you can find top verified casinos at casinopro.ca, with great promotional offers to tuck right into.

This article has been created to give you an idea of what you will be able to expect, sincerely from the top names in the gaming industry, for this year’s 2020 Black Friday sale. 

Xbox 

Of course, Xbox is right up there for the gaming experience it gives to serious gamers out there. Xbox this year has announced that their fans and community will be able to enjoy up to 75% off some of their biggest game titles within their gaming portfolio. The latest console for Xbox, Series X and S has a total of 13 promotions, with top favourites Minecraft Dungeons and Forza Horizon 4, giving you up to 50% off.

There is £8 off the Generation 9 controllers for the latest consoles, in addition to £10 off the Generation 8, that is one model behind the most updated version. The great thing about this offer, is that all controllers in multiple colours are included in this same offer, so gamers can take their pick of which colour to go for.

The Xbox PC pass for three months, will now receive extra games for free upon purchase. This offer is never on throughout the year, however for this limited time only, gamers can take full advantage of the £23.99 subscription.

PlayStation 

While we all know that the latest PlayStation 5 is out and many people are buying it like clockwork. Of course, a console so new will never be in the Black Friday sales themselves, but that does not mean you do not get to take advantage of the other things involved with PlayStation offers. This year they have brought back a favourite offer, which is the PS Plus subscription deals. These of course can be used by PS5 owners too, for your PS5 PlayStation Plus Collection amongst other benefits for PS4 too. The subscription itself has been reduced from £49.99 all the way to £32.85, via a special Amazon and PlayStation partnership.

Former ESL Executive Charlie Allen Launches Esports Agency “Road House”
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Charlie Allen, former director of global brand partnerships at ESL, has launched a new commercial esports and gaming agency, Road House.

The new company focuses on working with its clients to help them navigate the esports and gaming landscape and understand the mass potential of brand partnerships in a booming industry. Founded back in late 2020, Road House consults with brands, agencies, rights holders, publishers, and tournament organisers from all over the sports, media & entertainment world.

“Despite the challenges the industry has faced due to the pandemic, it is still a very promising time for esports right now. I’ve learned a great deal from working in this fascinating sector over the past few years and it felt like the right time to launch Road House,” Charlie Allen said.

“During my years at ESL, I spoke with many C-suite level executives from across many different sectors in the traditional marketing world, and what I discovered is that the broad, open ecosystem of esports can prove rather daunting to them. They really needed it explaining to them – like about how esports is consumed, who plays where, how many people are tuning in, and how can we positively engage with them?”

The commercial agency works with clients on RFPs from across both the endemic and non-endemic world, and the appetite to reach new millennial audiences that these brands have never managed to reach before is definitely on the rise.
