I just got the Wednesday paper here in Saint Louis and the Target ad definitely has the 1600 point card for $10...



Thanks a bunch!

Does the PS3 bundle come with physical copies of the games or download vouchers?

Has anybody pinned down what time Gamestop will open Thurs. night/Fri. morning? Didn't see it in the first post/wiki. Thanks for any info, sorry if I missed it!

Edit: Found a scan of their ad, says "Over 3,000 stores open at midnight on 11/23!"

Small print below that says "Remaining stores open at 5 am on 11/23/12"

I am shooting for the iPod touch 5th gen, I was going to get an iPhone 4 and use it as an iPod touch but then I realized you need the sim card from the iPhone in order to use it as an iPod touch, and I think the sim card has to be one that was previously activated on that iPhone. Needless to say this will be almost impossible to fulfill without having problems (using an iPhone 4 as an iPod touch, a used iPhone 4 that previously belonged to another person) so I guess now I am shooting for the 5th gen touch.

I wouldn't even be buying this if my 4th gen didn't suck as much as it does, you can barely type on it anymore and almost every app crashes after using it for a few seconds. Battery life when using apps and games is incredibly abysmal (remind me never to buy a device that has 2-3 hour battery life again that includes the 3DS and Wii U's gamepad) because it goes a lot faster than you think it does.

Yeah I know about the jailbreak however I really don't want to be messing with that stuff and since I have gift cards to pay for this iPod it would be cheaper for me and I would have a device that actually works.

Is there a list of the "coming soon" sales at best buy, like last year? When I click the link on the ad it brings me back to the black Friday ad.

Anyone remember what time Target started their online Black Friday deals last year? Was it midnight East Coast time last year? They've got some stuff I need to buy the kids.

Is anyone familiar with how fast games go at Walmart on Black Friday? I want to pick Forza Horizon and XCOM, but I want to know if I stand a chance of getting it outside of waiting for the doors to open at 8.

I have two Walmart's near me. One is a super Walmart. The super Walmart - pffft don't even fucking bother. It took half an hour for me to wade to electronics in the back of the store, waded around electronics until I saw nothing was left, then spend half an hour wading back out of the store. The other Walmart had 2 or 3 games left, but that was because someone abandoned them at checkout. If you're really lucky you might be able to get what you want but you'll probably have to wait in line for half an hour to an hour minimum. Or you could RUN as soon as you get inside the store.

If you go to the actual site and navigate through to PS3 or XBOX or whatever, then all the deals that will be online tonight are greyed out, the ones with no deals tonight are yellow.

Hello all! Black Friday/Holiday lurker here. haha
In regards to the "getting the game out of the case" strategy at Wal-Mart, I had a crazy experience with that last year. One of the games I went after last year that was on sale was the Arkham City/Arkham Asylum combo pack. I wasn't able to get it when it went on sale due to the chaotic crowd grabbing games right and left. I went to electronics and found it in the case. The lady at the register told me that it was full price and it was different from the ones that were on sale. I argued with her about how rediculous this was but I got no where. I left the store without AC/AA. I came back the next day, Black Friday, in the afternoon. I talked a different rep in electronics about the AC/AA in the case listed as a Black Friday sale item. He rung it up at the Black Friday sale price which was $30 I think. I ended up getting what I wanted anyway.
It doesn't hurt to try it. You may get lucky, you may not.
This year, I'm after Fall of Cybertron ($25), Uncharted 3 ($15), and LA Noire ($10). I'm going to go to Electronics early to see if I can get those games and hoping that the BF sales price rings up on them.

Good Luck Everybody!

Yea if you don't need a phone then the iPod touch is a better deal.

My Wal-Mart is remaining open 24 hours, but there's a catch. The games are located in cardboard box displays that you'd see DVD's in that are tightly wrapped. You chill by these clusters and wait for an associate to open them, or until the mob begins ripping them open themselves. Last year I had a spot in front of the box of "good" games an hour before opening.

When I refresh the page at Best Buy (for AC Revelations, but I'm sure it's for every game), I get an error saying "this page has a redirect loop." Does anyone else get this? I really want AC Revelations for $8, but it won't happen with this annoying error.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but will Gamestop's 30% towards select games and 25% on 2 or more games traded in stack?

I'm confused on the Amazon lightning deals.. there are things up that aren't on the schedule at all. Like right now it has some 3ds games that were on the schedule for Tuesday night, not tonight.

I'm not sure how this Thursday Microsoft Store thing works. I called the store (Boston/Prudential location) and they said they aren't opening until Friday. Does this mean that the deals are online or what?

I'd love to snag NFS and RE:6 for those prices.

There are laws in Mass about being open on holidays so the deal will be in store that Friday instead.

Every cag who puts shit on layaway at Walmart just for the sole purpose of hoarding it vs. showing up during the sale and hunting it, even after its been proven as a method that doesn't work year-after-year, are only fucking over each other by constricting stock levels.
