Pretty upset that Amazon's not discounting Ass Creed 3 or Forza Horizon. No Microsoft store anywhere in the state (Louisiana), and I really don't want to fight my way through Best Buy, or, god forbid, Walmart.

Strategies in this situation? I'm definitely going for the Vita bundle at Amazon since I've been holding out.


Put Forza on layaway at Walmart, pay for it in full on Friday morning.

So for 100% confirmation the Event 1 game prices last all day?


I'm going to annoy everyone and ask again.

Can't believe this Wal-Mart layaway situation might actually work. I'm going to try calling the local store later to get confirmation from someone who works there that they'll do it, if so I'm definitely heading there after work to grab Forza, NSFMW and LBPK.

yeah those deals should last all day on Friday but you may not find all games later on in the day since Walmart is usually packed and the deals start at 8PM on Thursday this year

Wait, doesn't this make it sound like the Wal-Mart layaway thing wouldn't work? From their Facebook page...

Walmart
Hi Misty, If you have an any item on Layaway and would like to receive the reduced price during our Black Friday sale the item(s) would need to be deleted from the Layaway account and added back to receive the event price (or price matched whichever is lower). Keep in mind layaway will be closed until 9am on Friday (11/23). Event prices for items sold during our first two sales events at 8pm 11/22 and 10pm 11/22 are only available while supplies last so they may be sold out when the Layaway desk reopens.


This sounds like if you have a game on layaway, you can pay the Black Friday price only as long as those items are still in stock out on the floor.

No, it means that you can only get the BF price if you can actually find a copy to buy during the sale. So if you have copies tucked safely away in layaway, you should be good.

Considering all of the deaths/injuries that have taken place on black friday every year, you'd think they would end doorbusters and switch to online deals.

SSX was supposed to be an Amazon lightning deal Friday morning, but it's on right now. Went ahead and ordered.

Does anyone know if Gamefly's digital distribution provides keys to plug the games in elsewhere, like Origin?

Nvm, Amazon has the games I was looking for at that price right now -- sorry Gamefly.

I'm sure this has been asked, but I couldn't find it. Are the Microsoft store deals only in-store? I just got an email and looked at their website that leads me to believe the deals are online also. It even says they start at 12am on Thursday and I doubt the stores are open then. Does anyone know?

Well, except for Cyber Monday.

Also, looking at the SSX lightning deal on Amazon right now - I've been wanting this game. Any word if it's better on PS3 or 360?

PS3 comes with a bonus mountain. So PS3 I'd say.

I'm looking to trade my old 360 (arcade unit) for a slim holiday bundle. Do the slims come with an Xbox hdmi cord? Or is that something I would have to buy? Also, for memory transfer, would I still be able to use the old transfer cable?
