once was enough for me when it comes to standing out in the cold for hours. I'll stick to buying online. :/ besides my local Walmart is the one where the ravenous crowd trampled and killed the guy who opened the doors. these people are crazy.

Damn Gamefly is looking good, will that 20% code stack.. has it been confirmed or denied yet?


Has this been answered yet? I'm assuming 'yes' as I doubt it would be in the first post otherwise.

No. Not yet. I think it will be in-store only, though. :roll:

we have any confirmation of the Microsoft Store deals being online for BF?

Has anyone gotten the final word as to whether Target is really going to be offering 1600 Microsoft Pts for $10 like the OP mentions ? Because in the online ad that is now active, and like at least one other person mentioned, it shows the Xbox Live 3 month Subscription as $10. Would really like to know, to save a trip in all that mess, and head to another store for even more chaos ! = )

You guys have no sense of humor if you don't find the Black Friday Battlefield to be amusing. People who are after the Call of Duty games are playing their own real-life Call of Duty on Black Friday.


I have an excellent sense of humor but that is just plain retarded.

Best Buy Silver Preview is looking good. Pretty much the same as all the other places, but it would be nice to get a majority of the games early so I wouldn't have to get trampled on Thursday night. I think I'm going to try for that Black Ops Vita Bundle, Most Wanted, and Medal Of Honor. Maybe ACIII and Borderlands 2 as well.

I laughed but I don't know if I would go just to see them in person. Watching clips of Black Friday idiots on Youtube is a lot safer. This is my favorite: I noticed the Gamestop BF ad has not appeared on any Black Friday sites. Is Gamestop always the last ones to have an ad scan online?

Hmm, so what do you guys figure the "extra gift" with the AC3 Vita bundle on Amazon will be? I'd be stoked if it was more Amazon credit, but even a PSN or PS+ gift card would be sweet.

Wal mart is he'll if you want a big item, tv, laptop, desktop, tablet. I haven't really thought about it before, but now I think the posters telling people wal mart is horrible and you will die if you go are just looking to cut down the competition :) pretty genius actually.

Usually blu rays and games are on one side once you get in the store while the Neanderthals are busy fighting over the big stuff on the other end. Sometimes I've shown up at opening time and scavenged and got all the games I wanted :)

There's an MS store I can get to, tempted to go there for my $15 Forza Horizon instead of fighting through Walmart.

So I was going o buy wwe 13 but I bought the collectors edition off eBay brand ne and sealed instead because I thought it was really cool instead. But then I started thinking it might be worth more money if I don't open it so I'm not sure. It actually does seem really rare. It comes with a special cover art with stone cold Steve Austin skull, exclusive collectible art personally autographed by stone cold, and a few exclusive dlc codes, and a wwe DVD. Do people think I'm better off not opening this or u think it will be ok? I bought it because I really wanted to play it but if it don't come in the mail by Black Friday I may still buy it anyway and keep the collectors edition sealed but what do you guys think? For those wondering I payed $84 for it shipped and msrp was $79.99 when it came out.

I'm really hoping for an extra memory card. A 16 gig seems like a reasonable bonus pack-in to make it the undeniably better buy.

FYI, Sniper Elite V2 will be $14.99 at Best Buy (likely online, too).

I have not played it but I plan to grab it cause I enjoy sniping in shooters in general. BTW the Best Buy ad for it is 15 not 20.

No fighting at Microsoft Store. I went to one here in Mission Viejo, CA and people there know how to behave.

No this is true, you will die! It is not worth going to walmart. If you don't get trampled the airborne disease will get ya.

2 Best Buys in my area just put out large stacks of the Playstation displays in the gaming section. I wish it was for Black Friday but doubt it as there is no sale in the flyer.

Does anyone know if the Microsoft Store is doing the deals at the Holiday Stores or it it strictly at the main stores. If not, that's not fair. Apple has five Apple stores in NYC, Sony has it's regional Sony Store in NYC, Nintendo has the East Coast Nintendo World in NYC, but the only two Microsoft main stores in New York are in Long Island and White Plains? What the Fuck is up with that?!

I at least hope you can buy Forza Horizon at $15 and Assassin's Creed III at $25 online through the online Microsoft Store.

So, I'd like to finally jump on the PS3 bandwagon, and I'd like opinions on which of the following stores you think will have the most *stock* of the PS3 bundles. I live in a *small* college town, so there's not a TON of competition on Black Friday, but the competition that does come out are all college students looking for game deals. Places I can get to:

Best Buy
Amazon
GameStop
Radio Shack
Target

Any thoughts?

my guess is your best chances are bestbuy, target, gamestop. Amazon is running the ps3 bundle as a lightning deal, lightning deals tends to go fast. you might want to also check newegg.com also

Well, Amazon is the earliest and most convenient of the five listed, so of course start at that. Just be aware that online deals like that tend to run out as quickly as doorbusters at a store.

Last year I slept on the black friday deals then decided I wanted a PS3 Bundle on Saturday. Checked 2 Best Buys, Target, Walmart, Kmart, all sold out. Ended up finding it at Radio Shack. YMMV.
