Here is a thought. How about giving the first post the wiki treatment. After all, alot of information will be coming out in the next month so why not let everyone chip in to this thread? Just my two cents.

P.S- Hoping for some deals on PC hardware. Time to build a new rig and I need a sexy graphics card (6950 or 6970 :D)



Or, just use one of the bfadds sites - they do an awesome job.

Nope, better off having one person control the flow of info. Too many chefs spoil the stew.

I disagree. I'd rather risk wrong information in the wiki post rather than scouring pages and pages of the BF thread to get an update on a particular deal I'm interested in. I don't think anyone is enough of an asshole to willingly put bad information in.

Pretty sure CAG has operated BF without a wiki for years now. Don't see how this is suddenly a huge problem.

Thanks for some of the updates guys on the ads. Ill have them updated by midnight on the official post. Hopefully this means most other ads will coming in soon, as i am looking forward to seeing what BB, Walmart and Gamestop(although not much hope after last years BF) have to offer as well as Amazon for online shopping...

Same. It's nice that bfads sends out emails when they get in new ads too

I thought CAG added the wiki feature only recently (read: after BF 2010)?

Cheapy would still go in and edit it. Now we can all do the work for cheapy.

Then this will be an awesome thread. I myself will keep an eye out myself.

Cheapy always edits it because he likes to do a game roundup on the eve of BF. He actually never even touched the thread until BF last year because I was on top of it. There's also nothing stopping people from writing up an ad and posting it here, even though they're usually inaccurate and have to be edited first before being added to the OP.

So, you are the only one that can post an accurate add?


This thread is getting awesome.

what do you care zim? just let him run the thread and read the ads.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

MW3 not really, maybe $50, but did best buy do $35 for black ops last christmas? they usually have $35 the week before christmas for all call of duty games.


It was either BB or Target that had Black Ops for $35 last Christmas. I remember for sure it was BB that had MW2 for $35 as an online exclusive the year before.

Lol, all I'm saying is there's no reason to fix what ain't broke. People can still contribute as they always have and the OP doesn't have to suffer for it.

Jodou did a fantastic job with the BF thread last year. I wish he would have been the one to start this years thread.

Hehe, appreciate it but it's pretty hard work and I don't want to take all the glory every year. I'm sure the OP will do a fine job.

I really am hoping bf deals at walmart dont interest me this year as I don't want to end up with broken limbs or worse.

Just a heads up..the Target toy book is out and AFAIK the only gaming related deals are for controllers. $10 off either licensed PS3 controllers or Wireless 360 controllers. Plus 5 off Wii controllers. If the Gears controller goes clearance before the coupon expires it might be a good buy.

Searching for Black Friday ads online is going to be a bit problematic this year, seeing as how many search results are turning up a certain teen girl who sang a crappy song...

Never leave the site. Seriously. New things pop up constantly throughout the day. Amazon alone must have sent me a dozen packages. I'd love to do the black friday camp out and get some stuff for my new place, but I don't know if I'll commit to the camping in line. I usually prefer to spend a good part of the evening on Thanksgiving with family. But the cyber deals run all through the weekend.

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

I'll constantly be checking cag during black friday on my mobile phone no matter where I'm at so I'm covered. Smart phones are handy for these types of events

So what is everyone's feelings on PS3 from Amazon on BF? Right now they are offering me $140 for my fat 80GB which I'm really considering selling. I assumed Amazon's was going to be $250 but now that I see Radioshack is going to be selling one for $200.
