I'm hoping for a special edition DSi from Target. [I love my Zelda DS Lite that I got from Target!]

I'm excited. I hope the deals are good this year but projections aren't hopeful. I hope the deals prove them wrong.

Can't wait, got an extra $1,300 in grant money back to me and am saving up for BF. WOO HOO. Hopefully MW 2 will be a sale item but most likely not.

If I remember correctly, BB had COD:WAW at $39.99 last year during the holidays, so anything's possible.
Besides Star Trek, when it comes to movies, they're is no such thing as a "re-imagining." Run. It's only going to be a crappy remake.

Why must you confuse me :bomb:, preorder MW2 at amazon and get $20 towards future purchase or wait for black friday to buy it. Damn you amazon, damn you...

Modern Warfare and World at War cannot be compared. They're nothing of the same and can't be compared. If you want to compare MW2 and MW you can, but to compare to WaW is just assanine. It's a completely different game.

Grant money for a video game?! What kind of grant is that, and where do we apply for our share?

It's grants and loans from college. Some people have scholarships, grants, and financial aid that gives them more money then what their tuition costs. Then they spend the money however they want.

I know my friend had the same thing. He was given a bunch of money to Barnes & Noble and he just bought games with it. I'm not sure if he was given straight cash, but I know he had a lot of money to B&N.

Already did myself. $25 Gift Card from Amazon was good enough for me. Not to mention I bought a ton of games for it with the ECA discount (no I did not stack).

I stood in line for...a while...one black Friday. Best Buy, for a stupid portable DVD player (which I still have/use). I worked at a strip club, wasn't planning on going really, but it was about 5:15 am, I had a couple hundred bucks in cash from the night's work, figured "it's probably exaggerated" even though I had to park in the "Dick's" Parking lot, which was 3 parking lots away from Best Buy.

I walked in the door and people glared at me like I was trying to cut in line, lmao. Yes, the line started as soon as you walked in the door and went ALLLLLL the way around to the back of the store to this maze of crowd control ropes (whatever you call them), then zigzagged between the best buy appliances aisle. I stormed over to the portable dvd players, grabbed the one I wanted, got my ass in line, which in that 2 minute time period went from the front of the store to the middle of the store (b/c more people had gotten in line, it was bigger).

That was the first time I ever saw a refrigerator with a TV built into the front door. lmao, ultimate distaste right there imo.


Anyhow, yeah, I won't go through that crap just for a couple games. I've acquired a great deal of the games I'll be collecting before my year long sojourn to South Korea. The main ones left for me to grab are MGS4, Fable 2, Dead Space, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Uncharted, and maybe Ultimate Alliance 2. I know Demon's Souls will keep me preoccupied for a loooong time, and I still have 70 or so PS2 games, 20+ 360 games, and a small handful of PS3 games. Easily will get me through the year in Korea. Aye, no life, I know.

Do note you can easily get in on all Game/Movies/small electronics deals for Black Friday on each companies website. This is what I have been doing for a couple years now to avoid the lines. Heck, even alot of the big doorbusters show up online now a days.

As for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2/World at War comparison... Amazon had World at War on sale for 49.99 for Black Friday last year... that is only 10 dollars off... current deals give you 20 GC... you do the math. If you are planning on buying MW2, just go ahead and get in on one of the release date deals.

I got W@W for 35 last year on BF so I'll be holding out.

Hey I scored some serious in-store deals last year, like Dead Space for $30, which was a great deal back then. $10 Dead Rising too. I'll hold out deciding to go out to the stores or not.

Same here. However, I have such a huge backlog right now (including Bionic Commando for PS3 that I just bought at NewEgg.com for $16.99), that I wonder whether I'll even bother this year. Now I won't pass on $10 PS3 games (COD4 would be worth that even though I own the PC version), but otherwise have bought my fair share already (Amazon and Toys R Us B2G1 Free; Nintendo Wii with $25 Store Credit from Amazon; etc.).

Can you please put the content and deals for the stores in a spoiler tab; it will get inconvenient to scroll once more deals start coming in.

I am doing the online only sales this year. If you can get into best buy and find what you want you still have to wait in line for ever. I did this for a tv a few years ago and the stupid thing was junk (it was there brand) and when i bought it the deal was you got a gift card worth so much it think it was $75 they took that off of my refund.

Inside word at RadioShack is that The XBox Elite (Need to see if it's the holiday bundle or not), will have a $50 rebate... so you'll be able to pick it up for $249.99.

It depends on what you are looking for cause I went around 10 am last year and there wasn't any line at all.
Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)
