Crazy.


What? Are you serious? That's crazy.


Yes and yes it is crazy, no way am I gonna be at the store til morning and with the line still growing I doubt there'll be anything left worthy of going

The bums started earlier this year at my store. They've been camped out since Sunday. Last year they started on the Tuesday before.

O.o


Yes they did, I think I saw the first tent up there like 2 weeks ago but didn't see anyone in it

What will be the link to the black friday deals on bestbuy? Sorry noob question

Dang, they're out of Xbox points cards at my local Target. I wonder if they'll restock tomorrow at all. Online it shows that they're in stock, so I hope others haven't hid them as I've seen suggested here.

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.

If an item is advertised they are probably holding stock because legally if an item is advertised then the retailer has to offer it for sale at least the day of the ad. I am sure they have pulled their stock so they can put it out for the sale.

So my Target ad shows a picture of the MS points....do I have any chance at using this to get the deal at either Target or Walmart?

Does anyone have an idea how long console deals last before they run out? I'm looking to pick up the PS3 deal. Also where would I have the best luck, Target?

I couldn't say, but these were in very high demand last year. Consoles were one of those doorbuster sale items that caused fist fights in department stores.

I thought that the kmart video game deals start on Wednesday and there are different deal starting times for each day after. Now I see the op lists it as starting Thursday. Did I just remember it wrong or were Kmart's deals supposed to start today?

There are a bunch of games that are listed as "coming soon" on best buy's website page (this is for Xbox 360). Most are the games that are advertised for the sale... many are still not though. So look for these to be the announed games. No CE surprises yet though like last year.

Trade List: Looking to trade a Flatout steam key :pc: and a Defense Grid: The Awakening steam key for... anything on steam! See what I already have at: http://steamcommunit.../games/?tab=all -- Just send me a PM!

Does BestBuy.com have a start time for sales going live? Or is it expected to be like last year when you'd just standby and wait until the floodgate of sales suddenly came?

gamestop is doing a bait and switch on this offer
XBOX 360 250GB Holiday System Bundle with 3 Free Games (Skyrim, Forza 4 and Call of Duty Black Ops 2) - $249.99

guy i know from there..not a good friend, but an person who is reliable said unless you are one of the first 5 people in line you wont get one with black ops 2. He said they have plenty of the standard holiday bundles without black ops 2 and they will last all weekend. He said its just an incentive to get people in the store.

I don't have too much time to back track tonight so I'll just quickly ask here.

Anyone here happen to know if Wal-Mart is going to be putting up any select games/hardware up online for Black Friday?

On my first BF opportunity, i voluntarily bailed out.

I had Prototype 2 Blackwatch edition in the cart and ready to go [29.99 @ Amazon].

I didn't go through with it.
I was just gonna keep it sealed, but it seemed like it was one of those Collector's Edition's that was gonna be worth nothing one day. Since the game wasn't that hot.

I just got talking with their CS and the guy I talked to said he doesn't know what time the deals will go live. He just said that tomorrow they will add a sign on the website with the time the deals will go live.

I was wondering the same thing about Best Buy. I'm late to the party so I may have missed out if it's even known.

In the mean time I'll sit here and poke this thread with a stick...

That Circuit City went under. It was then replaced by a Borders that also went under. Then it was rented out for the month of October as a Spirit Halloween store.

That lot is a whore.

I got the paper ad today. MP3 is 8.99 and I think it is only on xbox 360. The other games that qualify for PS3 say "PS3 also available" or something to the effect.

:shock: NOOOOOOOO

I'm heading down there anyway in the morning, so I'll scan the :ps3: version while I'm there, but dang, that would be disappointing if it wasn't included. :cry:

Best Buy's Deal of the Day ends at 12:00 AM PST, so I suspect the sale starts then. Good luck, people!
