Discounts for Racing Games
Also on the software side, many deals for racing games are available around Black Friday. Here are all those that we know of.
Steam Autumn Sale
The Steam Autumn Sale 2023 is on and once again a great opportunity for anyone looking to expand their library. The sale is active until 28 November, 6 pm UTC, and of course also features a long list of discounted racing games.
Special Offer for iRacing
On its current Black Friday Sale, iRacing is offering a 25 % discount for one- or two-year subscription extensions or for reactivating an inactive account and 50 % off for beginners.
The Crew: Motorfest
Ubisoft’s online racer series has been given a large dose of Forza Horizon in its third installment. The arcade races on the island of Hawaii look stylish and upgrading your own car is motivating. Currently on a 40 % discount (42 Euros) at Ubisoft.
Beware of Fake Discounts
However, another rule for Black Friday is to check for fake discounts. Retailers like Amazon have been known for using unrealistic prices to discount from. That makes their offers look like a very good deal, which in fact they might not be.
To identify such fake discounts, it is useful to use price check websites. Not only can these websites tell your where you really find that keyboard, headset or monitor for the lowest price. They also document how much a product cost before Black Friday, helping you to find out whether you are really looking at a good deal or just a fake discount.
