Does anyone know what the 10 in 1 PS Vita essential pack includes? It's part of the PS Vita sale at Toys R Us. Thanks.

In regards to the PS3 bundle, are console deals like this usually hard to get on BF? I figure with a new console it would be pretty crazy but the PS3 has been out awhile. I don't feel like fighting the craziness at Walmart so I was thinking of going to GS (we have 3 within a 10 mile radius of me).

I guess my question is do I need to get there early and line up or do you think I could walk-in to a GS or BB sometime Friday morning and still get one? Any help is much appreciated! Also hoping to get FIFA 13 from Amazon for $25 so i don't have to go to Walmart.


I would also like to know.

No one really knows. I know there has been lukewarm attention given to the PS3 bundle here, and pretty much every major retailer is selling it on BF (Radio Shack for $225 - not sure what they were thinking). But its really going to depend on stock. We haven't heard how many systems Sony shipped, and no reports (yet) from employees seeing them show up in stores. Some things that make me think supply would be good are TRU offering it as their Thurs-Sat deal, not a "doorbuster", the fact that most retailers are offering it, and there doesn't seem to be much buzz about the deal. Its not (from what I can see) listed on Wal-Mart's store maps either (while the Xbox is #1 on my local maps). That said, Amazon has it as a Lightning Deal which does make it seem like they may not have a huge supply of systems. And its impossible to judge how the masses sitting around Thanksgiving dinner will react to this deal. My magic 8 ball says "chances are good" that you won't have to be at the store when the sale starts to pick one up, but with most stores opening at 8pm, I suspect that many will be out before the sun comes up. I'd wager Amazon, TRU (because of the free controller) will be sold out fast, and Wal-Mart will probably be sold out by the next morning (unless they get hundreds in each store...who knows)?

Feels like a coin toss to me, certainly could go either way. If you're really worried, I know TRU has theirs up for pre-order right now (but shipping is $14 and there is no mention about the free controller like their BF ad shows). Personally I'll be trying Amazon, with a trip to Wally-world as my backup plan. Even with the free controller, its not enough for me to brave TRU at a BF opening (especially this year, as they have some pretty good pricing on other things as well). Wal-Mart gets crowded, but their stores are large and stuff is spread out. TRU is total bottleneck, and their checkout is a disaster on BF.

Dont listen to anything I'm about to say, but from years past no they will not be hard to get and you should be able to go fairly early and just pick one up without any issues. I think pretty much everywhere is having that PS3 bundle and it's not like it's the hot Christmas toy or anything. Maybe call ahead and ask how many they're getting if they can tell you?

Toyrus FTW!!! I preordered the PS3 bundle for a total of 230$. I don't see anywhere on the product details that says it includes a Air Flo Controller though.


How so? Was it out at your store and they let you pre-ordered it? Or online? Curious.

Thanks. I just saw the thread right after. Thinking about it though. That or just wait for Amazon/Best Buy. We'll see.

Is there really no store that has the 320 GB PS3 bundle for less than $200?

Man, I'm a bit worried about the 250GB Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle at $199. It's only available at 2 stores, and only one of those stores is in my area (Best Buy). I hope that doesn't make it hard to get that bundle.
Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

Should I get an extended warranty when I pick up a PS3?

Kind of going through trying to figure which retailer has the better plan out of the lot.

I don't believe so, and it's 250GB not 320 if you mean the Uncharted/Infamous one.

No.

Probably a good idea, but I recommend you get the warranty from Squaretrade instead of the store, especially if the store is Best Buy. I'm getting an extended warranty for my newly ordered 39" HDTV and the Xbox 360 I'll be getting on Black Friday from them.

It does but braving the crowds is the only downside since many will probably be there waiting to strike as well.

Is the $ 97 32'' TV an extremely nice deal? Will it last a really long time? Like at least 4 years? Haier is a Chinese brand so the quality is probably not that great.

This. From the horror stories I hear about Walmart Black Fridays, going to Walmart on Black Friday is like jumping into a shark tank.

More like piranhas I'd say. I remember my outing last year, gosh...getting bum rushed while trying to grab Yakuza 4. Just painful but, the savings were worth it. Plus I get a nifty tale to share with one and all.

Otherwise, contemplating picking up Borderlands 2 while I'm at it as well. I might as well just try to get the PS3 at Wal-Mart too since I'm going to be there.

No, I mean the 320 GB slim, not the 250 GB superslim. I wanted the 320 GB slim for $200.

Black Friday will be a warzone, but I'm going at 8 PM on Thanksgiving so I imagine most people won't be there.

I guess this was already answered but the Gamefly sales listed don't include the 20% off right? Do they charge taxes?

You'd be surprised what people will sacrifice to save a few bucks.
