Amazon and BB just had the $200 BF deal (which sold out pretty fast) no GC included. Tax @ amazon this year is going to ruin alot of deals.


Dang! Looks like you are right. I do see that 3 month PS+ is thrown in too.

So, how do I find out if Amazon is gonna charge tax in my state? They still don't as of this minute. Think I'll get that PS credit card deal to make this bundle better.

How soon do the ad leaks usually come? End of Oct or early Nov? I wish I knew what to expect before i buy the ACIII bundle on Oct 30


I'm also troubled by this. I sold my 120gb at gamestop while the double credit is on, but waiting till black friday is harsh. I'm probably going to spring for the ACIII bundle. People please try to talk me out of it.

Here's my reasoning:
Last year, there was no big deals I can remember on the 320gb models.
You can sell ACIII while it is still a new release for more cash towards the investment.
At 500gb, you'll probably never have to upgrade again.
It's smaller and lighter, making it easier for me to move which will happen next year.
I have $110 credit on PSN and looking to take advantage of the 20 bucks back promo.

I'm still trying to decide. My PS3 has had it's issues, and now it's gotten to the point where it freezes and the screen just goes black. So I know I'll need to replace at this point it, since I've tried everything possible to fix the issue. Just not sure if I should get another or just go for the super slim.

Have you tried using the PS3's safe mode menu to see if doing one of the options listed there might help with the freezing?

http://www.playstati...ith-this-guide/

Try doing either option 3 or 4 from the list on the safe mode screen. See if that helps before just going out to buy a new PS3.

^ Thanks for the link. I'll back up everything first and then give a shot, and hopefully it works since I definitely want to keep my PS3 and not have to resort to that.

You're welcome. I'd suggest that anyone else having freezing issues with their PS3 to try the info at that above link before just buying a new one. I know I made the mistake of not knowing about the PS3's safe mode and turned in my 40gb PS3 for one of the first slims.

I tried the safe mode thing you're talking about and my ps3 was still freezing. That's to be expected though, I bought it used....in 2009

I feel your pain man! My 40GB has been freezing a little bit lately and I been thinking if I should pull the trigger and sell it now or wait. But the thing is I upgraded the harddrive to 320GB and can't find my old 40GB and I would like to keep it. Ugh!

Hopefully this deal pulls through. Just have some extra cash to spare+gift card to Gamestop and I need another ps3 to go with the Playstation 3D Display I got on the Best Buy deal.

Just saw this today at my local Fry's store:

A new Sony produced 250GB PS3 superslim bundle containing 4 games (2 collections of 2 games):

The Infamous Collection (Infamous 1 & 2 and all DLC)
Uncharted 1 & 2 dual pack

The bundle (like the superslim Uncharted 3 bundle) sells for $270.

However, I believe this may very well be the Black Friday bundle, since Sony hasn't made an previous announcement about this bundle like they did for the superslim Uncharted 3 & Assassin's Creed 3 bundle. It fits the profile for a Black Friday bundle containing at least 2 games. Also Fry's tends to get the new Sony hardware SKUs much earlier than any other store...

Last black friday bundle was $200 as well. So it makes sense for it to be $200 this year as well.

Damn and the UC3 bundle comes out in a few days. Im not sure if I can hold out another month. Im thinknig with just going for that bc I think it will be of better value to me. I already own UC and Infamous games and already plan on getting ACIII. Plus 250gb wont be enough for me so Id have to buy a new HDD anyway. Still $200 is quite attractive

Huh? Don't get it. I prefer console gaming. I don't want to sit at my computer monitor, I'd prefer to be in my living room with my family. I know you're going to say something about hooking your PC to your TV. Sorry, I won't be doing that. Most people don't want their computers hooked to their TV. If there's ever the (vaporware) steambox then that's the closest I'll have to it.



Yes people can hook up PC's to their TV's if they wish, yes you can use ps3 or 360 controls to play skyrim and most other games wired or wirelessly and yes PC gaming is cheaper in the long run.

Also really your family wants to be around you while you play a single player game called Skyrim, please. Right...

It is one bundle containing all 4 games. The box for this bundle has the Infamous character prominently displayed on it, it is referred to as an Infamous Limited Edition bundle...

Don't know about the guy you are attacking, but couch co-op brings so much fun when playing with your family. And for single players we always take turns playing it.

OT: The games that are in this bundle are too old (relatively speaking), hope they have another bundle that comes with newer games, I could use another :ps3:

The way I see it, this bundle is supposed to attract brand new PS3 owners, and what better way than to bundle in the best games made for the platform.

If you want a bundle with a new game there is always the AC3 bundle, but you will pay more for it...

I know, problem is AC3 is deemed to drop in price, fast. So it's not that appealing to me, unless they make the hardware AC3 themed.

The way the 500GB AC3 superslim bundle is priced, it is like you are getting AC3 for free. Because the previous 320GB Slim sold by itself for the same price ($300)...

Not attacking just confirming that PC's do *exactly* what consoles can at higher res, non locked frame rates and higher graphical detail. Of course he already knew all of this and his only defense is he likes consoles better. Clearly was a baited troll line but still.

Also you can't really take turns on a game like Skyrim unless you all vote what to do in a situation that will have some alteration on the game. Like if your a nord or a elf, or whatever classes there are. Magic or melee, etc.

My wife will just play whatever I choose. My wife loved SR3, she likes to drive around and dress up the character. And it's so funny to see her drive around like in the real world, and she would actually do parallel parking before stopping before the store.

Agreed, the OP just keeps speculating more and more about what the BF bundle might be. We will find out soon enough. This whole thread is a waste of time until those details and most importantly pricing are confirmed. Everyone expects there to be BF bundles, so it's not like this thread is going to prevent anyone from going out and buying a PS3 today because they are unaware it could be cheaper or come with free games on Black Friday.

Sorry you feel that way. BTW I did mark this thread as a "rumor", and making an educated guess based on what happened last year, and what a Sony rep has apparently said. Based on the current update, it looks like it is going to happen just like last year.

Feel free not to participate any longer, IMO I think many people appreciate the heads up...

If that is indeed the BF deal, it would be awesome. But a 9 page speculation thread does not belong in deals. It's just dumb click bait and a waste of peoples time.


How is it "click bait" when I clearly mark this thread as a "rumor"?

If I didn't mark this thread as a rumor, you would have a point...


Also not the first instance of a rumor thread in the deals section that people seemed to appreciate: http://www.cheapassg...highlight=Rumor
