$15 GOW Saga, $10 Sly Collection, $25 Dishonored, $25 Borderlands 2, Wow now those are great deals, Walmart is making the other retailers look silly in comparison, I was planning of sticking to buying everything online but those deals are hard to pass up

Im shocked wallmart didnt have sleeping dogs on sale. with the sales being low for this game (which I really want to play) this would be a good way to create more interest

God of War Saga for $15 is pretty damn good deal. practically $3 per game, and each the GoW games were varying degrees of goodness. Reminds me of the Orange Box for $15 a few years ago.

If it wasn't for WalMart's Spec Ops the Line and Uncharted 3 (GOTY-Ed?) this entire Black Friday will be a complete bust for me. Let's see if Gamestop can give me a real reason to get out of bed that day.

I'm going to have to answer this question a million times over the course of the thread, aren't I?

Also, platforms listed are the ones that are confirmed by the ad. Games may or may not be available for systems other than the ones pictured.

Walmart is going to be insane. Even during years Walmart has nothing, Black Friday is always the most crazy there. Now that there are actually deals ... there will be blood. I can only hope to find similar online deals.

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.


So this Borderlands 1 not 2?

The 32" inch Emerson at Walmart is a good deal. I actually stood outside last year for it. I payed $200 and its a great tv. Love playing my ps3 and xbox games in HD on it.

How is Borderlands GOY when it just recently came out? Guess you just get access to season pass. Hell of a deal, but unless its online I'll stick to Best Buy. Willing to pay $10 more to avoid that chaos.


:roll: Are you serious? Its borderlands 1 GOTY, how in god's name would Gearbox have a goty for #2 if it came out 2 months ago. Game is great, but not perfect.

Been hoping hoping for a $50-$60 Kinect. Target discounted them $50 last year, hope they do the same this year!

Yeah just took a second look. 25 isn't a great when it retails for 30 unless Borderlands 2 is 25 and GOY like 10.

Wait what? Those assholes are making employees work on Thanksgiving?

Might finally pick up Dead Island, for $7 I can toss it into the backlog.

You'd be surprised how many employees jump at the chance to earn 1.5x hourly pay.

Seem like some good deals, hopefully Amazon matches most if not all of these so I don't have to leave the house. Only really interested in Dead Island GOTY, Forza, NFS, and AC3. Might nab Darksiders 2 if someone has it for pretty cheap.

Was hoping though that RE6 and Halo would be relatively cheap. I recall last year the only big games that weren't really on sale anywhere were MW3 and Skyrim. Here it seems like there's even more games left off the list, though it is really early.

Not everyone cares about Thanksgiving. I wouldn't if it wasn't for the GF. Same with Christmas and New Years. Independence Day, I can get behind.

I wish I worked. I was supposed to but they decided to shut down for holiday. Woulda been 2.5x pay and they count thanksgiving and day after holidays.

Seems like my theory each year holds true about walmart, that it gets pushed up 2 hrs more every year lol. I think in the 2010 thread I said it as it was at midnight, 2011 it was 10 pm and now 2012 it's 8 pm

TBH its rather annoying, I actually like to hang with family etc but starting at 8 pm makes plans change for a lot of people as well as more cutthroat

That said - in for NFS,XCOM, LBP Karting (wife almost bought it yesterday lol) and maybe transformers, may even pick up lego batman 2 for 15$

I skipped $20 copies of Skyrim on Amazon (would have been $24 with shipping). and am now thinking about getting it here for $25. I have a big enough backlog but a game of this caliber would pretty much skip to the top. Is it worth the instant satisfaction or should I go for a later GOTY edition?

GOTY edition is going to take a while. THey just announced a new editon coming out not too long ago that wasnt a GOTY, plus they're still getting new DLC out and old DLC on the ps3. I'd just get it for 25 and enjoy the loads of content that comes with it already. It should last you a while, especially since you have a huge backlog.:)

It's more of a reason to over eat WHILE seeing family.

Yeh I could set a family reunion every August, but Thanksgiving is a just a time to be thankful for what you have been given; which family fits perfectly in.
