im bored, so i will ask a stupid question, does any body know or ad up how much they are going to spend on games this BF ?
i keep going back and forth, between around $175-225 ?. lots of games to choose from.....





If I get everything I want, I'd pick up:

Borderlands 2 @ Walmart
Forza Horizon @ Walmart
Madden 13 @ Walmart
Dishonored @ Walmart
couple 1600 points cards @ either Target or Walmart if I can easily PM.

So about $100-$150

Assuming Walmart is a cluster like last year?

Borderlands 2 for $35 at either Target or BB.com (I have a little BB credit so maybe there) and some points cards...the other games I can pass on if needed and then I'd only be out $50 or so

assassins creed 3
forza horizon
little big planet karting
madden 13
NFS most wanted
sports champions 2
nba 13
fable (kinect)
1600 MSP for $10.

those are just some of the games i want, so many to choose, But only a little bit of CA$H.


If Amazon doesn't mess up I should have to spend a lot less due to $56 credit & $2 promotional credit. And I have $140 set aside but I'm hoping not to even use more then half.

Is there any chance the Wal-Mart deals will be able to be claimed online for in-store pickup? Sorry if this has been asked but I didn't see it in the op. All I want is the $100 3DSXL and Forza.

That is a DSi XL, not a 3DS XL, just so you know.

You technically get five games, but it's 99% most likely going to be the infamous 1&2 with dlc code for festival of blood pack and Uncharted dual greatest hits pack. That means there will only be "two" games that contain all five games listed.

Still not bad considering the system bundle is $50 cheaper on top of that.


wonder if i could dump those 2 game for like 30 cash somewhere and get the system for lke 170


can you hook cord controllers up to this system

Dude are you nuts? PS3 has USB ports... So unless you use the USB charging cord that comes with the wireless controller umm no wired controllers. I mean really!!?

Don't buy a PS3 because you aren't even interested enough to research the console.

I think that's the cord he meant? Maybe not.

Kind of disappointed with Gamestop's ad. There are some good deals, but it's like they took them from previous non-Black Friday sales and combined them into one ad. With the exception of the PS3 bundle, nothing screams "great for Black Friday".

And to be honest, I'm disappointed with all of the BF ads for this year. Two Batman games from Walmart and a Microsoft points card from Target are all I am interested in.

When someone says "cord controllers" they are so talking about something like oh... Duelshock 2 controllers aka wired. Hold me back man!!!!!!!!!!! I think the boredom of waiting for amazon's ad is pissing me off...

I think it's safe to say that ACIII will be the only one on sale. Everything else will be three cents below MSRP or $59.96.

I received a pretty nice paycheck this week, so I've got to save at least some of it, but I worked a lot the past several weeks in order to save up and plan for Black Friday. I'm thinking I'll probably spend over $200 or so on games, and probably $200 or so on Blu-Rays.

Don't buy it unless you're looking specifically for a pick-up-and-play handheld and are interested in the existing titles. I think people tend to get disappointed when they expect a.) it to be exactly like a console, b.) are looking for games with a lot of meat, and c.) have a lot of time to play video games.

It's a great companion device if you like something to do while you're watching tv or commuting or whatever. I think it's less than ideal if you're the type that sits down and plays video games for 3-4 hours at a time.

Oh neat, $199 AC3L bundle.

Best Buy might end up hating me. After seeing PS+ have Gravity Rush for free next week, I tried to return my copy and swap out for credit towards a mem card, but they said no because I'd gotten it as part of a bundle deal with ME3 and Shinobido 2. ...Sooo I took all 3 back, and got Shiobido 2 cheap somewhere else.

Since I still haven't opened the Vita, I may end up taking that back too if I can score a bundle from Gamestop. Ended up not paying much for it in the first place because I had about $75 in gift cards and another $60 in store credit for trade ins.. but hey, now I can just put that towards a larger mem card and starter kit.

Good thing I take forever to open anything!

Golden Abyss is console quality. Gaiden is a console game. It's up to the developers to make quality content.

Based on everyone's experience last year, if they had a PS3 bundle, did stores sell out or did the stock last throughout the day and into the following days?

I don't feel like going out just for the PS3. Did online retailers have it too? Specifically Amazon?
