The 2013 holiday season is set to be one of the busiest in a while. In addition to the debuts of the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Microsoft Xbox One consoles, this Black Friday marks the release of many future blockbuster titles including the newest offerings from the Call of Duty, Battlefield, Pokémon and Assassin's Creed series.
In this guide, we have compiled what we consider to be the 10 hottest video games of the holiday season and have broken out their best pricing options by console.
And for anyone hoping to score some great deals on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 games: there are none. With the sole exception of the Skylanders Swap Force Starter pack, none of our top games are even offered for the next-gen consoles.
