Does Walmart sell the games on other consoles at those prices?

 

They just say the other consoles on the side buy I remember having an issue with that for the PC version on BF4 last year, might've just been a PC thing because apparently they only had Diablo/WOW on sale for PC.

 

Basically looking at grabbing B2G1 at target today on some that I don't see included for target/bestbuy/walmart prices in OP (wishing I waited on Dead Rising 3 Ap.Ed.)

I'm still going back and forth on whether to get the Halo bundle in-store with the $30 gift card or get the online bundle. Either way, I'm going to sell the code to a friend for $40, so it's a choice between the Xbox One for $260 or $340 with a bonus game and year of Live. I might do the in-store deal if only to wait and see if I can buy Live and an extra game a la carte for less than the $80 difference.

Sounds like we're in quite similar boats. My plan, fraught with almost certain infuriating pitfalls, at the stroke of midnight on Thanksgiving:

1) Walmart.com, quickly add the PS4 online-only bundle so I can see if there's anything worth a damn for the plus-two games. If so, buy it.

2) If not, attempt a past-the-last-second pivot and buy the online-only Xbone bundle with Sunset Overdrive.

3) Regardless of which of the first two are successful, proceed to Bestbuy.com and snag a couple of games for either my freshly bought PS4, Xbone, or (heavens forbid) the 360 and PS3 I've just failed to replace moments prior.

 

I'm concerned that the content of Walmart's PS4 bundle won't be known UNTIL that midnight grabbing spree commences. Not much I can do about that, though, other than keep trying your method of search string prognostication.

if you have an amex card dont forget to use it to buy the bundle to get 25 dollars back at best buy and use the ibotta program to get an additional 15 back

The items that i most have my eyes on are a 3ds, smash bros and pokemon omega ruby. Because i just started a new job i only recieved 1 check for the month of nov, but i will recieve 3 checks during the month of december. So my question to you guys is what stores do you guys think i should target for the items listed above and if you guys think i can afford to get the games during the BF rush and wait to get the console next month? and vice versa. Thanks to those who respond

If you feel you can't afford it right now, just wait until December. There will be deals through out the month like Cyber Mondays. Pokemon and Smash rarely go on sale but BB is always good for a surprise deal every now and then.

Im debating on whether to buy a TV on Black Friday and then buy an Xbox One in December. Best Buy has a nice 32" HDTV for only $227.99 on Black Friday that I'm really interested in.

A majority of BF ads for games are useless if you have GCU. I'd rather spend the extra $5 at Best Buy and get the points.


Well that doesn't make any sense. You will spend a lot more just to get $5 coupons. You'd rather buy 6 games for $25 each to get a $5 coupon than buy the same 6 games for $20 each okay then...

What are the chances that Amazon will sell a year of PS Plus for $30 again?

Im hoping they do that and xbox live. That was a great deal! Also they did B2G1 on any released games so I'm hoping we see some details soon

Does the gold skylander still go for a good amount? I got the skylanders bundle earlier in the year and would say say its worth getting. Comes with nintendoland and I sold my skylanders for like 35-40. Digital deluxe promo ends soon. Either console you get is going to need a hard drive if you buy digital.


I have no clue on the value of Skylanders but the refurb's from Nintendo generally come with NintendoLand also. I would rather have the 32GB HDD & spend $50, get $5 back on digital purchases with the black Wii U vs. 8 GB & Skylanders with no digital discount.

Pretty sure wii is still 1st worldwide. They were still up by 20 million or so


My bad. Wii is #1 Worldwide but 2nd in NA behind 360. PS3 is 3rd in NA by A LOT but 2nd worldwide, although that is close enough it could flip again with 360 since it's only by a few 100k.

In a somewhat, kinda video game related question: Whats the best black Friday deal people have seen for a tablet? I'm looking for something under $200 if possible and something that isn't crap. Any suggestions?

They also have a deal for a 50" Panasonic in store only on thanksgiving day for $200. 

 

$227 for a 32" is no deal.

You might see some deals in store. Like in the $15/20 bends. Check Amazon and Gamestop for used deals. PSN also has good sales.

If you're talking about Android, I don't think they put "good" tablets on sale for the most part.  If you look at iPads, Walmart is only selling old models cheap.  Best Buy shows on it's front page the iPad Air 2's for $100 off MSRP (the other iPads it says "check back Nov 20th").  The Target ad shows the iPad Air 2 for regular MSRP with a $140 gift card.  If you're a regular Target shopper, especially if you have a red card (5% off all purchases) I'd go with that one for a net price of $475 with red card savings - $140 gift card = $335+tax.  Considering it just came out last month, that's a good deal.

It was a pretty good game with decent reviews, unlike the Colonial Marines garbage.

Well I've never owned a tablet before so I'm not looking for a top of the line ipad or higher priced one like an iPad. But for example I saw Best Buy with a 10" Windows 8 tablet for $149 and a 7" Galaxy Tab 4 for the same price. Just wondering if either of those are any good or anyone saw something similar for the same price. I'm assuming Amazon will also be having a sale on their Fire tablets so maybe that's another option.

It's more a matter of what ecosystem you're using.  If you're using android phones then buy an android tablet.  If you have an iPhone then buy iOS tablets.

Gamestop has the PS3 Super Slim bundles, and a few 320GB Slim bundles brand new for $250. Would it be better to get a new one for $250 vs a refurb for around $200? I think it is probably worth the extra $ for peace of mind and a Sony warranty. Plus you never know how the refurb was treated by the owner. Does anyone think GS will drop the $ on these for BF?

Disagree. I have an iPhone and a Nexus 7. Best of both worlds :D

I just looked at that Galaxy tablet you were referring to because that seemed like a good deal.  I don't keep track of Android tablets but I think most of them now prevent you from running apps off the sdcard and it's only got 8GB of onboard memory.

I have other devices, I just don't think it's reasonable to go that route when they can all share the same account.

If you are on ios8 it is best to have all Apple products because of how seamless things work between them.

So, is there pretty much nothing for Nintendo 1st party games? What about Amazon, do they usually put some on sale?
