other than the ps3 i got for my dad two black fridays ago and last years ps 3d monitor i rarley go for hardware so i let the zombies fight over that while i get my games/movies. i always say to myself ”dance puppets dance” as they do battle with eachother lol

Glad I got one of those 3D display monitors. Crazy how they shot up in price right after, huh?

 

For me the last few years have been more frustration than success. Wal Mart and Best Buy tends to work out the best because they have a higher quantity, Sears has been the biggest failure and almost always a complete waste of time. Sears was the first place I went last year and I got NOTHING for my trouble.

everyone assumes the microsoft store will repeat last year. do they have a history of doing what the did last year in the past ?



Yes, last year was the first time MS sold some of their BF deals online.  The nice thing was that a lot of their deals lasted well into the day despite having the best deals on games like Kinect Sports 2, Dance Central 3, etc.  They didn't have every deal online though iirc.  For those looking for deals on NBA, AC4, BF4, Madden, and NHL, FIFA, etc. look to the MS in-store sales.  They were very competitive compared to Walmart's deals with less crowds (under $30 each).  I think the only drawback was that you couldn't get the multi-platform newer releases online.  The ones that were available online weren't Xbox exclusives, they were the older titles at the crazy discounted prices of $10 like Lollipop, Spiderman, and Prototype 2, etc. 

Best Buy early BF deals for Silver members did not include the doorbuster deals.  So if you are looking for a good TV deal, your options will be scant.  For what it's worth, that 55" LG TV only has 2 HDMI inputs from what I read.  That seems like an inferior TV to me but I haven't done my homework yet.  I remember the deal not kicking in for a half hour after the original scheduled time.  If you want some great TV deals, wait until Superbowl week. 

Amazon usually PM's Walmart on a lot of deals.  Last year they matched the lowest prices available through lightning deals for most games advertised during BF if not all.  The last two years there were price mistakes on a couple of games though.  Last year NBA 2K13 was under $20.  The year before that DragonBall Z Raging Blast was under $10.  Wonder if something is going to slip by Amazon again this year.

If you guys want to go in-stores for gaming deals there's no need to line up at the store opening.  Most retail stores were pretty well stocked for the majority of the weekend.  The only exception was Walmart and the MS store for certain titles (Xbox titles of multi-platform games).  I wonder though if Best Buy is going to have some shortage since this year they shrunk their gaming department.

I am in the market for a 40-50" TV this BF and I do not care if it is a "SMART" TV as I won't use any of the apps. I am looking at the 40 and 46" Samsungs at Walmart/Target, the 47" Vizio at Target, and maybe the 55" LG at BB. Can anyone offer some recommendations?

I think the bestbuy Wii U bundle is listed wrong in the op.  On the site, it shows wii u + 1 controller + nintendoland which adds up to the $370 MSRP it lists.  So the picture with both mario and luigi controllers might be false advertisement.


It's definitely wrong in the OP. Only one remote is included according to the Best Buy site: The Mario-themed one.

It's probably been asked but are Best Buy's multi-platform games on sale for every platform? For example, will Madden 25 be on sale for PS4 and X1 also? Or just current gen.

Nothing next-gen will be on sale this year. Everything just came out or will be coming out around Black Friday. Just current gen.

Promo/pre-release sales are pretty common.  Immediate post release sales, not so much.  While appreciated, I wouldn't expect anything significant, if at all.

Because this is the Black Friday thread. We're talking about Black Friday here. I don't consider spending $120 to get one game for free a deal. Outside of that Buy 2 Get 1, which isn't even related or won't even be available come Black Friday, there are no next-gen Black Friday deals mentioned, or at least not yet. I am not expecting there to be any. I imagine if people wanted next-gen Black Friday sales, they'd prefer singular discounts rather than having to purchase two full-priced to get one free.

Dumb question.

Can I just buy the game I want today, keep it sealed, then go back on Black Friday, return it and buy it back immediately at the black friday lower price?

lol. Hopefully it's a typo. I can see it going for $10-$20. I picked it up in September for $20 at Best Buy, and it's the same price right now at Amazon.

This, if they had it it would be a bad part for marketing in general, especially since companies still need to make money on things!

Sure hope Dead Space 3 is like $15 on Amazon or Best Buy for Black Friday, love these sales. :)
