TigerDirect (retail stores only) will have HALO 4 and COD:BlackOps2 for $39.99 this Black Friday (5-10am).


Mail in rebate kills the deal. I just saw an ad scan for it. It says after $20 mail in rebate.

Other than those two along with Project Gotham and Forza, does Xbox really have any other key exclusives?

Exactly; other than those four exclusives (excluding timed exclusives that eventually came to other systems), they really don't have anything else. I mean, look how many PS3 exclusives there are in comparison. I am so happy BioShock did come to PS3 though. Hands down one of my top 5 favorite games of all-time.

I love trials evolution on XBLA. Other than Gears, Halo, Forza, and maybe Crackdown is I'm not sure I guess not. Come to think of it the only reason I keep it is for party chat and I have way more friends on there.

Oh yeah forgot about Fable. I thought about Alan Wake, because I jealously wanted that game to come to PS3 for years after that first E3 trailer, but wasn't it also on PC?

Not that I'm knocking Xbox's exclusives or anything; I just think they need more of them. I mean, I'm a die-hard Sony fan. I'll never own an Xbox, but I think that Halo 4 & Forza Horizon both are beautiful & fun games to play.

Is this a good deal CAG's : http://www.walmart.c...-Bundle/7964864 ?

Or should I hold out for the $150 bundle at Walmart? Any idea how early I'd have to get there to actually get one? Or is it a better idea to pick up another bundle and avoid the Walmart crowds (never been out on BF before; live in Wichita, KS)?

P.S. I'm a PC gamer; only need to pick up a 360 so I can practice up & beat one of my buddies in NCAA so the 250 GB console doesnt seem worth the extra money to me!

Yeah Gears, Halo, Forza, Trials Evolution are all pretty awesome. Other than that though you'd get an Xbox for the online aspects and that's about it. PS3 has many more exclusives and is better for single player games.

Basically if you buy an Xbox and don't play online, or if you buy a PS3 just to play the Call of Duty type games you'd be doing it wrong.

Edit: Forgot Dance Central is another Xbox exclusive that's a pretty fun party type game assuming you have a kinect also.

And yeah it's available on pc.

Alan Wake is on PC now (just earlier this year). Fable 1 and 3 are as well.

Except you don't have to pay extra to play Call of Duty online on PS3

since many of those games are gonna be $25 this deal is kinda meh IMO.

The walmart bundle also comes with the skylanders pack which you could sell for 40ish, which is what I plan to do.

Wichita is semi big right? Its probably multiple hours early at least

Alan Wake was one of the few games that actually sucked me in and got me to finish it. I wish MS would gamble more and release games such as that more often. Not copy and paste, but just take a risk and release something different. But the gaming industry is so much about "MONEY NOW!!!" that if it doesnt sell a trillion copies in the first 2 hours than its a flop and they dump it.

One thing I can say for Sony is they do try to mix it up and release quite a few different games exclusive to their platform. Sadly though those who only have a PS3 dont support them enough to warrant a sequel or show that its something theyd wish to continue. I have both a PS3 and a 360 and every game I own on PS3 is a exclusive since its well worth those alone. My 360 time is basically all my multiplats and online gaming which me and my wife use to play together.

All in all gaming was great this generation, it just seemed to me though to be a transitioning period for a lot of people. Companies trying different tech, different ideas with controllers and such. If we could have a PS2 era of gaming but with current technology id be in heaven. But platformers/action adventure/and RPG dont sell as well as "GET THAT BIG GUN AND SHOOT THAT RED BARREL TILL IT SPLODES!!!"
