So have someone potentially die to save time? Humans can barely manage to be civil in a line during other times of the year.. And you want them to behave in a free for all...

LAWSUIT....

Sure, you could have employees hand out games to individual customers. Only at a certain point someone isn't going to get the game they want. Then comes the cussing out of the poor sap that's making minimum wage and working on a holiday. Then customers start to argue in the line, then you have the same issue that you originaly tried to avoid.

At this point it's gotta be expected. When you swim with sharks don't go crying when you get eaten.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

Anyone know of a Home Theatre system from Sony for under $300?

First of all.. settle down, I don't run Walmart. I don't know where you live, but the Walmart I work at is always fine on Black Friday. I think you need to chill out a little bit, I was answering the man's question for him and explaining how my store did it last year.

So do I just stand around the thing early and try to see through the plastic what I want and when they open it I say "excuse me excuse me" and there you go...

Any one of you two know if Fall of Cybertron is also on sale for PS3?

You don't say "excuse me", you just start spraying pepper spray so people scatter.

At least that's what they did at my local Walmart last year. ;)

I wished Newegg would jump on the $200 PS3 Holiday Bundle bandwagon. They have it on their website but the deals are already out and it's $270. I have a Shoprunner trial going and I don't feel like braving the crowds for a PS3 before they run out of stock. I would rather just come later after on Friday and pick up a few games at Walmart and Gamestop.

Talking about that chick who spray it and got charged by the police and arrested? When I got my PS3 slim in 2009 people waited in line and got to the electronics desk and told them what they wanted.

In case any of you have been living in a cave for a year or two, looks like BB will have LA Noire for less than 10 bucks, probably 7.99. Fallout 3 GOTY, Super Street Fighter IV, Saints Row 2, Green Lantern, Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days, Skate 3, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, UFC 2010 GOTY, COD 3, and Lost Planet 2 may also be under $10. Dead Rising 2 might also be 9.99.

Also see Saints Row: The Third — The Full Package will be on sale at BB, all those I just listed are blacked out now and not listed in the OP

if you sort the games by "coming soon" it'll show you a good amount of games, most of which have been shown to be in the sale. maybe some are just coming soon because they normally are like COD3, but for the most part it seems to be accurate: http://www.bestbuy.c...pe=listing&gf=y

I just went through all of their PS3 lineup and noted all games that are now labeled "Coming Soon".

The Saints Row is listed as coming soon and 49.99, so it might be a 29.99 game in a few hours. It comes with 3 download packs.

This may have been answered but this thread is too massive to search through.

Has Wal-mart said when they the prices go up online? What has wal-mart done in past years.

Thanks

I'm on the west coast. Ass is plopped in front of the computer and WILL be until these things go live. If it's another 6 hours then so be it.

Long time viewer of CAG, first time poster, so forgive the newbie if i am doing this wrong or posted it in the wrong place.

KMART must have gone live with online prices early. I'm on the east coast if it matters.
I just bought Max Payne 3 PS3 for 8.99 at Kmart.
Dishonored for PS3 also showed up on sale price $29.

****note: you may have to put the item in your cart and proceed through a few steps of the checkout before you'll see the price shift to the sale price.

Saved me a trip (and spared me the madness).

I'd much rather 2am, you lucky west coaster. Even if I set an alarm for 5am, there's no way I can shake my comatose state till around 10.
