Is that any worse than xenophobic internet commenters who don't use capitilization and punctuation correctly? I ask you!

Sorry to pick on you... It just gets on my nerves when people look down on other people like that.

Im scared (seriously some people will fight over milk if it's on sale) to go but I figure everyone should try to go to a BF sale at least once in their life for life experience. That way you will know if you can handle it or how you can improve your snatching skills against other shoppers.

Thanks for being on the ball guys. Now I'm not sure if I'll stay with the Hardened edition. I don't know if 6 weeks early access to one zombie map is worth the $30-40 surcharge.


It's $20 more than the standard version. There's some avatar stuff, some exclusive player cards and stuff for the MP, a digital copy of the soundtrack, and it's in an official Steelbook. Depends on how much that is worth it to you.

Seems like GS is going to be your best hope on that one, happy with the $13 I paid for it from GF.

I remember last year at Walmart Black Friday, someone had botched the map locations so things weren't in the right place. DVDs and Video games were supposed to be in deli area while toys in the produce. Someone had the great idea to put DVDs/Video Games and Toys together in one area. It was hell on earth. All of pushing, shoving and ass grabbing (more mine than someone else). It took me about 8 minutes to get back to the other side. By that time, pretty much all games were gone. Luckly I got the ones I wanted anyway. I always hoped someone got fired for that.

Wait wait wait. There's going to be ass grabbing at WalMart? I was on the fence, but now I'm in.

That is how all Walmarts are. The goal is seeing through the plastic to knowing where your best puchase lies. In example, last year the video game stand I was at was gone in the first seconds. Note if you are looking at DVDs/BluRays, you have more room for error. Good luck to all that go.

Yeah, where the hell's the GS ad? I hope they have some kinda sweet sweet deals - the second store in my area is a bit out of the way, but all the ad stuff usually sits there all day on BF. NO ONE goes there. It's awesome, and sure beats fighting to the death at the mall location.

Yeh I have some credit there also that I would like to spend. I am surprised no GameStop Cags have mentioned any sales they may have heard for Black Friday.

I've been hearing nothing but doom and gloom about the Playstation Vita Fun, but what the hell, I'll take the plunge at $200. There's plenty of crap I want to play on it, at least.

I'm still waiting on Best Buy to repeat their massive OOS sale that left 75% of their customers with unfulfilled orders....

I was one of the lucky ones that had all items arrive shortly after placing the order.

If I recall when news of the Super Slim BF bundle was leaked, it was by a Gamestop employee. So in my head I'm assuming they will get it. Not sure on price though. Seems everyone that is carrying it is caring 200 except Radio Shack (220). That's my main goal this year. You can hook a wired PS3 controller. Is that what you mean by cord? Can't just hook any usb controller.

If you don't already have a DS and are a Zelda fan they have the Zelda 3DS edition for 200 at GS.

STILL no :3ds:XL deals?

I guess I'll have to wait for when they release a new color then. I was doubtful about getting a red or blue one anyway...

PS: Does that $15 Wii Play Motion from Walmart include a Wii Remote Plus? If so, wow...

Best Buy has a $20 off deal on the 3DS and 3DS XL this week. I suspect that's going to be as good as it gets for us XL lovers this season. Went ahead and picked it up at this price point because I don't see a price drop hitting us anytime soon. :(

Wow the 3DS deals are really lame this year, they could discount more than $150, or maybe Nintendo is preventing retailers from discounting any further. The regular 3DS is worth no more than $99 and I was really hoping someone would have it for $99 but it looks like I am way off on that train of thinking. I would be willing to pick one up for $99 but not a penny more, and the fact that there still aren't any games I want coming out in the near future makes this a no-buy for me (the Pokemon games are still on the regular DS, which I already have and which plays them just fine so I don't really need one). Hopefully next year will see bigger price drops on the 3DS.

Does anyone know what time Walmart's sale starts online? If its 8pm on thanksgiving day for the regular ad then I assume it would start well before the actual BF holiday. Last year I woke up at 7am on thanksgiving day and apparently BB's killer sale was going on and I got everything I wanted and more.
