Earlier today, Google sent out teaser tweets from its Nexus and Android Twitter accounts alluding to the likelihood of the commencing of Black Friday deals. At the time, little information was known about what would be announced or even when it would be announced as Black Friday is still a couple of days away. Although, with the Nexus Twitter account part of the teasing, it was assumed that there is a chance hardware sales might be announced.
Well, for those waiting to pick up a discounted Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X, the hardware side of things has yet to see any activity. However, what has now happened is that Google has took the wraps off their sales for the software side of things. If you head over to the Play Store now you will see that their “Special Cyber Weekend Sales” have now commenced. As such, it is presumed these prices will be good for the entire weekend. Although, it is worth noting, Google has yet to confirm when the deals will end and does specifically state that “these deals are for a limited time only”.
In terms of what is on offer, it looks like there are deals pretty much across every category you would expect on the Play Store and with a number so many titles being listed, there are too many to detail here. However, to briefly sum up, there are games starting from 99 cents, “Amazing Music Deals”, movies to buy from $5.99, “Hot TV Offers”, Magazines from 99 cents, 50-percent off subscriptions, up to 70-percent off Coins and a whole lot more. The Amazing Music Deals is quite interesting as there does seem to be a number of albums which have dropped down to only 99 cents. For that price, you are looking at albums from Muse, Fleetwood Mac, Notorious B.I.G. and others. While the game deals see a number of games dropping considerably in price and from developers including SQUARE ENIX, Gameloft and Disney.
