Just so ya'll know that if you arrive at Walmart and the game is sold out on the pdq they display them on, Last year all the games in the case were ringing up at that price also. Thats just a fyi since i've worked there the past three years.


I did that last year. They had Arkham City for $28 on the pallets, but in the glass case they had the Arkham City/Arkham Asylum GOTY bundle. I had them ring it up and it was $28.

I haven't seen an ad leak, but I am hearing that it appears Target is going to be opening at 9pm for Black Friday.

That said, not sure what my shift is yet for that day, but if it's favorable, I see myself potentially going to Wal-Mart to pick up WWE13. Redboxed it the other day and enjoyed my time with it to the degree I think it's time to pick up my first wrestling game in about half a decade. Need for Speed Most Wanted or even Transformers wouldn't be bad consolation picks though. Or even X-com.

I hope the Walmart deals are online as well. $25 for Need for Speed: Most Wanted would be VERY nice.

Anyone know if Max Payne 3 *on PC* will be 15 dollars retail DVD's. Because its a 28 GB download on Steam WHY!? ::BARF::


Also i'm hoping BF3 pre edition/service goes for 25 on PC. Though since I own the game on my origin account the premium edition game code wouldn't work I think.

I usually avoid Walmart on BF but holy hell those deals are insane.

I thought Dance Central 2/Kinect Sports 2 for $15 last year was crazy. But man they went even crazier... I had to double look when I saw Forza Horizon for $15.

Both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Borderlands sales at Walmart are GOTY editions.

You can tell by the spines:
Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY

Borderlands GOTY

Also, the Arkham Asylum seen in the ad is in a red "Greatest Hits" case, which are all GOTY edition.

The more I think about, the more I'm predicting that Amazon will price their games in between Best Buy and Walmart's prices.

So we will get $30 games like Borderlands 2, Dishonored, EA '13 games, NBA 2K13, etc.

That way they will price them cheaper than Best Buy, while making people pay $5 more for staying home and ordering online as opposed to braving the crowds at Walmart.

I am assuming the walmart game prices are in store only? My walmart has a terrible selection of games, and they most likely will only have a few "sale" copies. The rest will be standard price....at least from the last time I went there on black friday

Well when they don't have a print ad so why would they leak anything until all the retailers have played their hands?

Easy work around.

1. Have ad in hand.
2. Go to the electronics department and get the games you want.
3. Check out. If they ring up full price, show them the ad. Tell them it is in the ad for so and so price until so and so time. It is in that time so you want it at the advertised price.

Chances are the lines will be long so they probably won't put up much of a fight as long as you're wanting a game that is specifically shown in the ad.

Last time I didn't take it to the electronics department. But the last time there wasn't anyone there. There was just one gigantic line cascading around the whole store. This line had boxes with specially marked games.

For example, Infamous was like $10 that year. But when we found a non sale copy, the sale dude was like "sorry too bad" because it didn't have the black friday sticker.

Perhaps I just wasn't tenacious enough.

this is exactly what I did in wal-mart black friday 2010 with Red Steel 2 with a WM+ adapter combo. Got it for 10 dollars when it should of been sold for 39.99.

I dont feel bad about it since WM+ was barely used by anything and that's clearly what Nintendo wanted it to be like in the first place. When PS Move is better then standard wiimotes, thats just sad.

If you do not want to be trampled to death on Black Friday at Walmart you should submit the sale price to Amazon. Go to the product page and click on TELL US ABOUT A LOWER PRICE
Okay?!

Yeah I'd laugh and tell them no, the ad doesn't say anything about black stickers.

Well when you submit the lower price you have to tell them the retailer and location of the store and when that price will be in effect. I just read the other ads and placed the date accordingly.
