So I went to my walmart and got Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Sly cooper and NFS Most wanted, all ps3. Unfortunately the Forza Horizon ps3 apparently doesn't apply with the deal


Because Forza is an Xbox exclusive...

Back in 2006 I bought a PSP game: Star Wars Battlefront II. There was no UMD in the case. It was quite shocking, thankfully I opened the game five minutes after buying it so I quickly got my money back.

My Walmart had all the games still in the case and you could ask for what you wanted. Had tons of XCOM, WWE13, and others. I was going to get some for any of y'all that couldn't but didn't know. If you might want a copy of the games mentioned above let me know and I'll see if they're still there.

Hmm it seems like Walmart isnt getting alot of the PS3 bundles. No way I'm going there then. I would imagine GS will have alot, so I might chance a midnight opening there. Any opinions?

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on shenanigans with the Xbox live point deal at Target. The cards aren't marked on sale in store, aren't ringing up on sale and apparently have been removed from the ad. The actual deal is on 3 moth live membership cards now. However, some of the employees had old versions of the flyer and when I pointed it out and raised hell I got them for 10 bucks. So YMMV at this point.

In and out of Walmart in 20 minutes. Grabbed XCOM ($25), Forza Horizon ($15) and Spec Ops: The Line ($15).

I showed up promptly at 8:00 PM and had the dude in electronics give me games from the case. LOL @ all the idiots who waited hours for the "promo" stock of games. They all have the same barcodes dudes!

I also grabbed 20 blu-rays for like $100, including all 8 Harry Potter films for $3.99 each. God I love Black Friday.

do you think LittleBigPlanet Karting at $25 is a steal? Or is it a given that it is this year's All 4 ONE and will plummet in price?

Is Dishonored part of the BF sale in Best Buy stores, or is that an online-only deal (which is now sold out)?

Just got to Old Navy. First in line LOL. Only have to wait a little less than 5 hours but for what amounts to a free NSMB Wii U Game, totally worth it IMO.

Isn't the gamestop experience in the vein of the walmart black friday catastrophe?

Minimum wage in my state is $7.25... so about $36 for 5 hours. At minimum wage.

If that's worth it to you then more power to ya, but damn man. 5 hours. Fuck that, lol.

Just be sure to grab $40 worth in merch quickly and race to the register if they aren't giving out tickets. You may be first but you'll need to be first to checkout too.

I got lucky enough to get this deal. The girl at the cashier seemed like she was new and called for a manager, as soon as he saw the price on the ad he marked down each of my MS cards.

I got 15 of them :)

Here's a tip when the store opens quickly grab $40 - $50 worth of random stuff, rush to the line, pay and get your free copy. Next day return it all. Don't know why no one has thought of this yet.

If that's the only one of the ME games you need then yes. If you don't have any of them wait for the trilogy pack to go down in price.

Exactly where I am. Hope they don't give out tickets at this point so we can race to checkout

I'm pretty depressed that only Wal-mart had Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on sale, and I was hoping to get XCOM there. Everything was toppled, since everything was in cardboard bins. Probably get Xcom on Amazon and have to wait on Tekken, unless I missed something?
