Why isn't ratchet and clank on sale? I have never liked the way Amazon do their black Friday sales.


Just swallow your pride and buy it from GS. That's what I did. :)

Did Amazon just completely bail on lightning deals this year? All I see are some super obscure titles and tons of junk mice and headsets coming up today.

Not completely. They had some yesterday. But they also seem to be doing random limited-time price drops that aren't Lightning Deals, unless I missed something - like The Division and Fallout 4.

Can't tell if you are joking or not but yes they are games. Especially Guilty Gear, a 20+ year fighting game franchise that's probably better than Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.

 

Honestly, I'm glad Amazon is going for more Niche games. How many more of the same deals and prices for Call of Duty and Battlefield do we need? At least they are giving deals that no other retailer has right now, especially for rare games like Exist Archive on the Vita. And everyone is saying Amazon is just copying deals this year too.

I would hold off on patting Amazon on the back for including niche titles until we actually see the prices.  If history is any indication they will just be the same 20% off that you could have had them for if you preorderd the titles.  I'd like to be surprised though.

This year? As far as I'm concerned they've bailed the last 3 years :(

Guilty Gear $30, 50% off. I'll take it, not a bad price for a game that's never had a price drop on a physical copy. Although it's cheap as heck digitally.

Guess they decided to put every controller, headset, keyboard, and mouse on sale. As usual Amazon fails another year on Black Friday.

You know at 17.99 it's kind of hard to resist the digital only copy :/

Should I hold off on buying the kingston hyper x cloud ii and rise of tomb raider? Headset is around $60 and game is only $35 on PS4. I wonder if they'll get cheaper?

 

I really hate amazon's deal structure. I don't want to randomly look at your website all day just to know when a deal pops up out of the blue.

Well, I bought Shiren, though I should've bought it with GCU a while back.

I wanted amazon to so badly have a deal on Watch Dogs 2. I was wrong in putting my faith in them.

No where had a deal on Watch Dogs 2...it came out too close to Thanksgiving. As many people said....a bit later in December i'm sure we'll have some discounts.

Even those niche games I wanted are at pretty mediocre prices.  Those games will be cheaper later as I don't see them selling all that well.  Woke up early for nothing >_<.

I'll never forget waiting all day to see the RE Collection's deal. It went from $26 to $24. Amazing.

You know things are bad when it is halfway through Black Friday and the Amazon topic is only 3 pages long.  5 - 10 years ago the Amazon topic would have been at least 50 pages long and still going strong throughout the weekend.

On a positive note, if you have Prime now they will deliver you some of the deals they have price matched.

i have to say, at least they are price matching the games, instead of only matching them for lightning deals that insta sell out. and for the most part their games have been in stock the whole time.

I remember when Amazon used to win retailer of the year here at CAG. Everyone was sucking on Amazon's ding ding worshipping the site like fanboys. All they have done the last 3 years is price match everyone else.

This year is just a joke. Maybe they dont need the revenue since their cloud business is printing money like crazy.

So they really are skipping Black Friday in favor of Prime Day. Excuse me while I make a Breaking News about a Seiyuu Fanboy claiming the only winning Powerball lottery ticket of $403 Million.

 

Spoiler

 

I member in 2010 getting myself a lovely 2 TB Western Digital External Hard Drive for only $70 during Amazon's Black Friday to store all my anime.

They actually matched a fair amount.  I'd say they have a matched a pretty good percentage on the AAA game deals.  They just haven't done anything on their own though.  

Only thing I bought from them is Batman Return to Arkham for $25. Guessing they matched Walmart.   I had a $15 off promo code from them for my first order so $10.98 after tax delivered in about 2 1/2 hours was pretty cool.

Man, I'm soooooo disappointed in Amazon this year. Total bomb. Sucks for them. I can spend my money elsewhere.
