Given amazons track record lately it'll probably be a bunch of Imagine games for the DS.

Amazon black friday sales always divide people, those who got in on the deal or those who didnt.....

I was lucky enough to grab a kitchenaid mixer last year for $75 with a $50 giftcard :D

But their goldbox deals are very lukewarm....

Another time for Amazon to provide completely crappy game deals. I am off on Friday so I will still check it out but the past game days have been god awful.

Prove me wrong Amazon...prove me wrong.

Darn, looks like I will be staying home on Friday :D but really, I don't care. I have bought one video game from the Gold Box deals (maybe two, I can't remember now :roll: ) and they were decent games for decent prices. My brother got my a bunch of Nintendo games in 2007 and got several of them for $20 from the Gold Box, ever since then I've been watching the Gold Box, hoping and praying something good will be offered. It seems, however, that anytime I miss one is when they offer the good stuff, or really good stuff.

So once again, my fingers are crossed their might be something good. If my memory serves me, this is the first time in a little while Amazon has had all video games and promoted it like this, so hopefully it will be something worth while.

Let's, see, I would like:

Super Mario Bros Wii (pre-order) - $20
Toy Story Mania (pre-order) - $20
Metroid Prime Trilogy $20
Super Paper Mario - $20
Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess - $20
Little Kings Story - $20
Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box - $20
Zelda Phantom Hourglass - $20
Scribblenauts - $20
Mario and Luigi's Inside Story - $20
Ratchet and Clank A Crack In Time - $15
Uncharted - $15
InFamous - $20
Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts - $10
Ghostbusters (All Systems) - $20

So a new game every hour and a half or so. Of course, a few dollars in either direction would be okay too... Now, where's my job at Amazon, I think that is a fantastic pricing plan :applause: :lol:


One can only dream.... Maybe if I don't keep my hopes to high I will find something good, even though I don't need anything and really should stop buying for a while anyway, I just can't pass up a good deal.

Thanks for the heads up OP, will be setting my phone to remind me now!!!!

Speaking of which, what kind of deals did Amazon have last year?

The past several years my family would go out early on the morning of Black Friday, more for fun than anything. Once and a while we would have one item we were looking for, but for the most part would just buy things we wanted if we could. For the most part we went to Staples (since they were the only electronics store near by :D ) and switch on and off to go to JC Penney's when they opened and Wal-Mart once they opened... Oh, the good old days, I can still feel the excitement standing there waiting to get in, last year we had a beautiful snow fall an hour or so before Staples opened and it looked like a snow globe in the parking lot lights. Anyhow, once we finished at the main stores we would go to other stores if the parking lot wasn't crazy, usually Kmart, Radio Shack (never anyone in there), etc. but only if they had good deals. Then, we would go out to lunch early afternoon and make a day out of it. A lot of fun and usually found a couple of good deals, it is so much more fun when you go not actually wanting something, when you want something there is way too much pressure :)

So anyhow, I've never been home to see what Amazon offers and was always curious since they tend to have good deals all the time anyway.



By the way, if this is off topic I apologize and anyone that wants to share can PM me.


Thanks!

I can't wait for Amazon Black Friday either. They matched pretty much everything and I just stayed home. Although I don't know if it will be as good this year because we're missing Circuit City. Ever since they left, the weekly ads have gone downhill.

Beg to differ. Halo Wars LE was a very awesome deal.

Sorry, was just a little joke. Amazon does tend to have good deals, but as others have said, recently, the deals weren't as good, so I thought it would be funny to post some out of this world ideas.

Yes, very true, but who wouldn't like for it to become a reality :bouncy::drool::bouncy::drool::bouncy: My dreams are always crazy, but they are just dreams, so I'm allowed :D

If it happens, I'm going to go buy a lottery ticket :bouncy: Wonder what the jackpot is now :roll:

I second this. If they were to have a game of this caliber on Friday, I might be very tempted. The only ones that seem like a possibility that would be relatively new are Prototype and Ghostbusters, so fingers crossed for those.

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

You are not kidding about being a nintendo fan. That is a BIG dream, especially the new(er) releases.

Not to threadcrap but we all know it's usually some accessories and left over collectors editions followed by games that we don't want. NOw let's hope I eat crow in a few hours

i used to work at circuit city, and since associates had to get to work at 3am (1 hr b4 openin) id do a quick run and grab a random assortment of things i wanted (blank dvds, tv season dvds, a few games, etc), and put it aside until the end of the night (since 3 of the 4 yrs i worked their i got the awesome 3am-11:3- pm shifts), and buy my things then. damn this year i'll no longer have my insider edge!

This. I set my alarm for 5 minutes before sales went live, woke up, ordered, and went back to bed. I think there was some live broadcast going on before hand here on the site, but sleep > nerd mingling. ;)

In for 2. One to play, and the second to keep shrink wrapped and sell for millions down the road.

Their videogame Goldboxes generally have at least one game worth picking up... I'm hoping for a deal on Prime Trilogy. Already got a copy from Amazon but if a better price comes, I can return it and buy the lower price.

Currently playing: 

:ps4: Rocket League - :D

:ps4: Last of Us Remastered - :applause:

I wish they would bring back the Halo Wars LE. I need it for my steelbook collection.

Metroid Prime Trilogy would be nice too, but I doubt they'll have that.

Should be 12AM EST. But I doubt they'll have anything decent when it's really early on the east coast.

Seems to be missing some items or not stating the lowest price during the weekend.

From my purchase history:
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts $26 (thread not listed)
Golden Axe: Beast Rider $10 (thread stated $20)
Sonic Unleashed $21 shipped with $5 promo code (thread stated $26)
At the time, these were awesome prices!

I bought these and a bunch more. Spent $100's. Wonder if they'll grab my attention again.
