Sweet deal. Looks like everyone else noticed it's happening twice. That's kind of weird but I won't argue with 'em.

Haha I knew it. Well that saves a trip to Wal-Mart. I just hope I'm lucky to get it before Amazon's servers crash as well.

There will also be another Lightning Round deal for the same offer at 3pm EST/12pm PST in case you're not an early bird.

But i think the deal will be gone in nano-seconds - the same thing happened to KZ2 when it was on sale for $20

I *heart* amazon. Walmart is losing my business. I'm taking my shopping to Amazon once again.

Curse you Amazon. Why do you do this when I have $130 credit with you??? Why???

Seriously, this will probably last about 20 minutes each time.

I think if it lasts even 20 seconds it would be amazing. If it does last 20 minutes, I think Amazon would make a crapload of money. It could be great for them.

Unlikely. They don't actually stock stuff like 360's or PS3's. They have them drop-shipped from regional supply houses like Ingram Micro that satisfy orders for dozens of retailers and e-tailers. So, chances are very good that the stock is recent.

I'm glad to see Amazon going toe-to-toe with Walmart this year. If you look at the lightning deals for Saturday, they seem to match up to the various Walmart deals. They already have the S360 Blu-ray player for $151 (free ship, no tax) vs Walmart's $148--but it's out of stock, so I wonder what they'll be offering instead?

EDIT: Hmmm... S360 just jumped back in stock on AMZ.

If this price war keeps up, by the time we get to Black Friday, they'll be paying US to take stuff! ;)

How about the other items? Could those pontential be as good/better than walmart's deals?

I say so.

And no way this goes passed 20 secs. Maybe 10 secs with a downed amazon.com

And with no tax (for most) and the comfort of your own home and not mobs of people? Id say so...

Wow we have an optimist here..

If this deal lasts longer then 1 second it would be a miracle.

Interesting... Amazon's console stock is shipped from Ingram Micro?

I say that amazon's going to crash five minutes before the deal goes live.

Refresh, Refresh, Refresh, and Crash.
