Great list at Wal-Mart. I edited out the blue headers under the Wal-Mart section and just left them bolded because with the default CAG background it was hard to read them.

I'm just going to pull up a lawn chair and wait for all of these "Wal-Mart just won Black Friday" topics to turn into "Wal-Mart is the mother bleeping anti-Christ" topics.

If these sales are online and you're able to pounce on the fairly quickly after they're posted, you might be ok. But as far as going out to an actual B&M store.....I'm afraid people have no idea what they're getting themselves into, and more importantly how few copies of some of these games there are going to be.

I couldn't agree more... Specifically for Forza Horizon, you couldn't pay me to try to snag a copy as I believe that's what most people will go for first since it's such a great price.

I was definitely going to go with WWE 13 at Wal-Mart until I seen "in store only". Definitely not worth the headaches of Black Friday to go to an actual Wal-Mart store but I was willing to order online.

Almost tempted to risk my frail body against the masses at Wal-Mart..almost.

I'm hoping there's great deals on 360 controllers & battery packs...

Too be honest I didn't think Black Friday last year was that bad at Walmart. I got there about an hour before the sales started and got everything I wanted. The only think that sucked was waiting in line to pay. I had friends with me so we just shot the shit.

However I'm expecting this year too be pretty chaotic. I'm ready though ;)

My secret for Wal-Mart is just go to the normal game cases before the sale starts and grab what you want from there. Last year I grabbed everything I wanted before the sale started and I was able to check out right at 10:00. Of course this is YMMV but it is something worth remembering.

I double double agree. The deals are sweet as tits, but in reality not worth it. More than likely, you'll end up waiting for literally 1 hour next to smelly horders and old people with a copy of a game, CD, or movie that you didn't really want and had to settle for because all the good stuff was sold out during the first 124 seconds of 23 November 2013.

I'm very confused, there are like no deals on the Vita. With how terribly it's selling, I'd have thought they'd make a big push to move stock of those for BF/CM

2 things like others have said...

1.) Sad there is no 3DS XL bundle, I sold my 3DS over the summer before the XL came hoping to grab an XL bundle... maybe (doubtful) Gamestop will throw one up... or at least Amazon have their own custom bundle

2.) No Vita game sales is a real bummer, but hopefully Amazon has some lightning deals. But again, the ones they'd prob drop to <$15 are the ones we already have seen at that price.

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!

I know they put colored stickers on the cases to let customers know the price, but do they have special UPC stickers on the box? If I recall they do not. Maybe this year Ill try that and try the self scanner to see if it works. I'm pretty sure the prices are based on time and not special packaging.

So, can I just show up 2 hours earlier, grab the games I want and wait until 8pm, or do they "force you" to pay right away? I mean, how can they even do that? Sure, they have to open the glass door to get the game to you, but they always ask whether or not you want to pay at the front cashier...?
Is this how you guys are able to nab these deals?

I did it last year with no trouble. In fact I got the Arkham City bundle for the same price as the single game that was in the bins.

If they have the cabinets open, go there. That is my plan for this year to.

yeah unfortunately for me last year people nabbed up all the bundles before the sale technically started but yeah all the main games were in the case at mine

Wow good to see. I'll show up a few hours early so I can actually find the games I want in the main case and just hold them until 8. I have a feeling my Walmart actually walks the games to a register for you to pay though. I'll just bring my wife and have a cart full of crap and say I'm still shopping.

Is holding onto the games even going to work? Remember it's Walmart, not all the copies are gonna be for sale. Only the ones with the "Promo" sticker will be on sale. They have a sticker barcode that's different than the rest.
