Man, I can't believe there hasn't been more hype over these bad boys from JCPenney's BF ad:

I've been looking forever for a piece of furniture to remind me of the cell phone I had in 1993.

Probably safer to wait for amazon. I don't really trust target to put the bf prices on their site.

Now that I think about it, yeah, I think I'll just wait. I checked their ad and it doesn't seem like the prices on 3 things I wanted (1 not even showing up on the target site) will go up. I'll grab L4D2 from BB, and DA:O from Amazon then.

Yea part of me already questions this.......its saying, for example Walmart is selling some of their stuff at 11/26/09 @ 3am EST.........


when i clearly go to the site for http://www.walmart.c...953930608115249
the ps3 bundle, it states "This item will be available in stores and online at this special low price on Friday, Nov. 27. Limited quantities available."

Which would really mean 11/27/09 @ 3am(i presume), so yea where did these quotes from, i'm not getting the same vibe from walmart

I'm a bit.. flustered.

I don't have any income at the moment (except from flipping every so often.)

I'm looking to purchase a PS3 and a 32" 1080p HDTV soon.

If I purchase the PS3 and HDTV, I'd be left with very little. $200 maybe.

(I have $600~, $160 Amazon Credit and $70 Amazon credit on another account, at the moment. Along with.. $45 GS Credit and some cash on hand.)

I -really- want the PS3 and HDTV, and since I currently have no costs to pay each month, now seems like the time. However, there are many games coming out early next year.. most notable to me being Mass Effect 2 Collector's Edition, Bioshock 2 Special Edition and Final Fantasy XIII (probably collector's edition if there is one.)

Along with a few other lower cost pre-orders that I'd have to pay off like Splinter Cell: Conviction.

I'm not -too-.. interested in the items bundled with the PS3 (Killzone 2 interests me very little, but Infamous looks pretty good, but GameStop recently dropped the used price to $35, so picking it up on the cheap won't exactly be hard.)

On that note, I'm wondering if sales on HDTV's/PS3's would be better in December?

Anyone know the best site to use to create a black friday items list?



Most of these Black Friday sites allow you to make a list.

See what I've planned to want, but it's still going thru editing.

My BF list

What's you guys' list?

I see. My IGN Insider ran out and I thought I remembered reading on there that the PS3 version was slightly better. It doesn't matter a whole lot to me but I feel bad for the PS3 since she gets lone sometimes...

I think that I'm going to snag the BBY PS3 bundle if it available online.

Bing cashback will be 10% for BBY plus I have a $25 PayPal promotion and about $200 in reward certs. However, I do like the Wal-Mart bundle better....

Yeah, they're really waiting til the last minute this year ... of course, I guarantee it will be in tomorrow's paper. The question then becomes, is it worth descending into the depths of the hell that Frys becomes on Black Friday in order to get said deals ;)

Wow, when did Bing start doing cashback for Best Buy??? Thanks for mentioning that! Here I thought Ebates' 1% was as good as you could do..

Are you sure about 10% Bing cashback at Bestbuy? It's only showing 5% unless I'm looking at the wrong place.

Err, I've asked this a few times in the thread, but I'm like 99% sure it has not been answered.


Does Walmart have its deals online, specifically NBA 2k10?


Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know if Walmart's customer service is going to be open on Black Friday? For some reason I doubt it, but I really need to make a return.

According to my local ad on Walmart.com, NBA 2k10 only available in store

Does anyone know when Left 4 Dead 2 will be on sale online for Best Buy??

It says doorbuster pricing for it begins on Thursday, but when will that apply to online? Thanks.

I need some ideas. I'm going to GameStop Friday to pick up two copies of GHIII as presents, and I need a free game for myself($5-10). I hate RPG's, FPS's, RTS's, and fighters, and I love arcade racers, platformers, and shoot/beat-'em-ups. I can play anything they sell except PSP games.

I just don't want to spend the morning shopping for an extra game. I want an agenda so I can get in get out. Anybody wanna help??? :D

Oh, and for the person that was asking about Pure:
http://www.eurogamer...-article?page=3

Pretty close to identical. I don't have Insider, and while their head to heads USED to be fantastic, they've been terrible the past few years, so I would take their recommendation with a grain of salt.

crap, I forgot that Target puts their stuff up early online. Only game I wanted from them is already sold out. Anybody else who wants something from them go check out their website out now, deals are up.
