You guys think i will be able to get some of these games if i just walk in Best Buy or Walmart when the sale starts or will i have to wait in line to have a chance?


From my previous experience at Best Buy it seemed pretty organized and in a structured fashion. I wasn't there to get any games but I think I was in line long enough to play PS3 while waiting. The closest thing to Wal-Mart that I've experienced is going to Target around 5 or 6 a.m. Literally as soon as they let me in the store (after waiting in a line that wrapped around the building) it was a frenzy to get to the electronics section. I was trying to get a copy of Gears 1 and NBA 2K8. The glass was open and there were a bunch of little kids. I grabbed a copy of Gears and then my sister asked if I wanted the last copy of Halo 3. I acknowledged yes and kept it moving.

I'm probably going to Wal-Mart this year and I really am worried not about getting a copy of the games I want but more about dealing with crazy ass people and little kids.

I went in the other day to buy Skyrim since I finally got my replacement PowerUp Rewards card in the mail (they weren't kidding about having to wait 6 weeks). turns out the thing was mysteriously lacking my $160 credit.... now have to call up and get another one mailed out to me again, hopefully this time I get to use my credit that I've been waiting months for. Won't have it for black friday though I'm just now realizing, which fucking sucks :(

I also was hoping for a 20-25 dollar Catherine deal. I do suggest grabbing Yakuza 4 for 10 bucks, fun game.

Aw damn it, I knew I shouldn't have bit on the buy 2 get 1 free deal at Target with Uncharted 3, Batman: AC, and Dark Souls. Le sigh. Oh well at least I'm enjoying them now.


I don't know what I'll get, I have a $50 Gamestop giftcard and I have been wanting to add God of War III and Ratchet and Clank: ACIT for a while but on the flip side a deal for Skyrim or Zelda down the line would be nice.

Kinda tempted to buy the Metal Gear HD Collection at that price. At the same time, I should probably hold off as I know for a fact that Skyrim is going to continue occupying most of my free time as it already did in the weekend. Also, boo for no Dead Rising: Off the Record deal. ><

ahhh another heavy rain buyer ! I'm so glad that heavy rain is getting the attention it deserves this year (I will be buying it for a second time). To bad it had to hit 14.99 for that to happen. It's such an amazing game ! I will say this though its not for 15 year old cod players with low attention spans. Too bad they didnt edit out that Jason scene ....

I was looking at the scan for gohastings and I saw that they offer "these two games (it shows R&C:AFO and LBP2) and one used blu-ray movie of your choice (priced $29.99 or less) with the purchase of PS3 160 GB holiday bundle" for $200. Does that mean you get 2 copies of each game? That seems strange...

It's minor and fairly insignificant for most here, but I figured I'd post the details for anyone interested.

Half Price Books is giving out tote bags with $5 gift cards to the first 100 customers, with one tote bag having a $100 gift card in it. Doors open at 7am (a little later than some others) and they have coupons out there for 40% off your highest priced item or $15 off your purchase of $50. Not sure if it is okay to post a scan of the coupon or not...

bestbuy has the best price on Assassin Creed$35 and NFS The Run$30, however amazon had the same price on both game titles last year on BF, so i dont plan on leaving my house. I expect amazon to come through and match the majority of these deal as they usually do.

Also im expecting a deal on Saints Row 3, i noticed no retailer has it on sale, hopefully amazon comes through. A few other games im hoping for sales on are 007 reloaded, and Rayman Origins

I'm hoping MGS HD collection goes on sale somewhere else other than Kmart. There's no Kmarts in Houston and I doubt walmart or BB will pm it.

Thanks for that sort by console/game. I was going to do the same thing myself with pen and paper this morning but your way works much better.
Guess as I'll get my wife the DSiXL Mini land Mayhem bundle this week at TRU w/ the $25 gift card as the XL doesn't show up in anybody's ads.

So these early leaks have nullified purchasing the new assassins creed or any game releasing before black Friday. Nice.

Well, can't believe I'm saying this but Best Buy actually lives up to their name this year. First to leak and clearly the winner for deals overall. I wasn't even considering the new NFS, but for $30 I'll check it out.

Definitely snagging Dance Central 2 & Kinect Sports Season 2 at Wal-Mart.

Also definitely going to snag Sonic Generations and a couple of 3 month XBL cards at Gamestop. Debating Driver SF at either GS or K-Mart as well.

Also hoping Amazon has Ico/SOTC Collection on sale and I will be set :D

Catherine is one game I hope amazon has on the cheap. Havent seen it on sale anywhere other than $39.99 at best buy a month or so ago.


Good luck with that. Lowest I've seen it was on Amazon a few weeks ago. Was 45 bucks. Bit the bullet cuz I was afraid nobody would run a BF sale on it. Good thing I did it then because NOBODY has advertised a sale on it and all the ads are out. Amazon Lightning Deal might be your only hope because a PM is obviously out of the question at this point.
