Well.. I wouldn't say it's really worth it.. I use a Plasma, and supposedly for movies it's much better. For gaming, it'll reflect light, so if you're in the living room that might get annoying. 720p is really old though now.. so I dunno.


Very good points.

man really trying to figure out if gears 3 and Arkham city will be worth going out to walmart for. walmart black fridays are scary as hell.


I'd be surprised if it's not online and/or Amazon doesn't price match.

if not walmarts $28 then they match Best Buy's $30 price tag. Hope amazon matches walmart's infamous 2 for 28 but i'd rather take UC3 over that.

I did a quick search, don't see the tv you're talking about. I game on my 50in 1080p plasma, and I wouldn't game any other way. The glass screens can reflect bad on some models, but most I've seen recently have an anti-glare coating. Depending on how big the screen is, 720p might not be enough. Anything over 40in would be a waste of money at 720p, imo.

So do any of you guys/gals game using a plasma? I see best buy has a panny plasma for $399. Twice as much as the sharp and only 720p. Thoughts?

Not only that, but it's also a better deal to get a console this deep into its lifespan. There's already a library of great, cheap games. A better question is: Why would anyone want to buy a console at/near launch? They cost way more, come with the bare minimum, and have a few dozen games to choose from. All you sacrifice with old consoles are the graphics.

Not sure if anyone posted this yet, but it looks like Best Buy RZ Silver members will have early access to the Black Friday deals on Monday, 11/21. This is on the front page after logging into my RZ account:

"Exclusive Early Access to Black Friday Deals
As a Premier Silver member, you get first access to select items featured in our Black Friday ad, Monday, 11/21 from Noon to Midnight ET, online and on the phone*."


Do you know what items will be available?

Someone on here mentioned this.

I saw this commercial, like 30 minutes ago, and thought...hmmm... Maybe I'll get the X360 next week and get the difference later. Fine print:Find a competitors lower price between Nov 1-Dec 25, get a gift card for the difference...EXCLUDING BLACK FRIDAY.

Hopefully, I can still find a copy of Rage at Best Buy when I walk in around 10am. Better yet, I hope they have the same deal online since I don't want to stand in a long line for just one game and maybe a couple of other small things. I have a $5 RZ certificate so I'd rather get it at BB.

Gamestop has a deal on Rayman Origins. I am kinda in shock that Gamestop would have a better deal than the competition :lol:.

I am going to see if I can nab a B1G1 50% off at k-mart this week. If I can't I will defiantly get Rayman for $40 on BF.

No I'm pretty sure it's the grey Platinum Hits edition, which means no VIP code in the box (which gets you extra modes on the disc maps and 4 additional maps consisting of maps from BFBC 1 MP and BFBC 2 campaign.)

Really hoping amazon has the $200 dollar PS3 holiday bundle. I have $40 credit there and it would be sweet to get all that for $160, and without having to leave my house, or be murdered.

For those who've actually been inside a Best Buy on Black Friday, do they rearrange some of the sale items around the store, or can we expect them to be where they usually are?



Last year at Walmart the video games were in the produce section in between the bananas and the pineapples.

Lots of good deals on things I'd want to pick up. At least get me close to those prices Amazon. Prime + no tax + lack of crazy people = win.

Uh, no? As was previously mentioned here numerous times, while there's no guarantee yet, it is exceedingly unlikely that Amazon will just straight up price match the lowest doorbuster prices on Games, DVDs, and Blu-Ray's, they haven't done so in years. Hell, Amazon isn't even price matching the lowest prices in the Sunday ads lately. Amazon will have low prices, no doubt, but they probably won't be THAT low.

Huh? Dont make me look through last years prices to prove you wrong. I'm pretty sure they had some lightning deals that matched much of that kind of stuff.

Good news - some of the deals are valid Friday and Saturday, such as TRU and Sam's Club.

What didn't they match last year? Looking through my purchase history, I see that they definitely matched some of the blu-rays (Superbad for $2, Mad Men S1-3 for $10 each) as well as RDR, DQ9, RE5 Gold and a bunch of others. In fact, I can't think of one door buster from last year that Amazon didn't have as a lightning deal at some point, unless maybe you're talking about the price errors like Target's LOTR boxset for $9 or whatever it was.

is there ANY chance that any of the deals will work online?
The xbox consoles are at great prices this year. I have high doubts that any will be available online at Best buy or walmart. And if they are, I expect they'd sell out almost right away.

Mario or Zelda 3DS bundle?

I'm thinking Zelda bundle. My son will love Mario land but there's nothing unique about the red 3ds and I can always get him the marioland game. I'm just hoping they'll have enough in stock at GameStop on Friday
