Should really put your tag in the appropriate spot so people that have it disabled don’t have to see it every time they read something you wrote. ;)

Thanks, I didn't realize I was doing it wrong, should be gone now.

This might be the worst Black Friday week I’ve ever seen so far for amazon.

they had a couple lightning deals for gaming the past few days, but the mobile app (Android) being stupid and not listed them on the Current Deal section for some reason. We should see more as we get closer to the big days.

I remember their Black Friday deals last year took until around 3-4 AM EST for the site to update, so it could be a few more hours.

 

I'm more interested in which deals will be excluded.

Does anyone know how long it will take gamestop to send out the gift cards for the ps4 deal and will they send the code by email at all?

Anyone know?

Just like lots of things this year, Target Black Friday Early Access sucks too (unless you need Lego Dimensions).

Nintendo doesn't drop the price of their games very often so if you think Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will cheaper next summer all I can say is good luck with that...

Tell that to the Xenoblade X I got for $30. That game kept dropping. The original on Wii got reprinted and hit $30. Star Fox & Tokyo Mirage, Captian Toad and Mario Tennis Ultra are other recent ones that also dropped quickly. Suprised people still believe this. I think you ment Nintendo games that are Mario, Zelda or Mario Kart don't drop in price often. Mario/Rabbits for $30 at Wal-Mart is tempting though. It just came out in August, but it's Ubisoft so the value will probably keep dropping.

So the wired Switch controllers that WM have for $17 do they serve the same purpose as a pro controller would? If my son was playing mostly docked and had games like Mario Kart, Splatoon 2, and Lego Worlds how many would he need. He should be playing no more than 2 player with me or my wife or a friend from school.

 

Thanks

You know Amazon deals suck when you can't even get a butt plug on sale.

I keep checking the spreadsheet hoping for Metroid to show up on sale for $25-30. This is killing me.

No NFC, No motion, No rumble. Other than that It's just fine. I play splatoon 2 with motion controls off. $17 is a good deal if you're ok with those missing features.

FYI if you're also trying to find online start times for most retailers, check here. OP isn't very clear on this so hope it helps for tonight.

Thanks for this, gonna add it to the OP. I think I will also end up removing all the start times in the op so it's less cluttered

My strat is just to go with the GS slim deal and wait for the PS5. It's likely two years out at this point and will almost certainly play ps4 games at an even higher fidelity than the pro.

That's a pretty good strat.

I doubt ps5 is anywhere near 2 years. Sales of ps4 are still beating Sony’s expectations so I doubt sales drop enough before 2019 for that to make sense. Combined with AMd not shipping 7nm until 2019 and ps5 seems like a 2020 device. I do think we will get a super slim ps4 in 2019 tho.

NP, I was just checking all of CAG trying to find the Target online start time and ended up finding it in seconds after a google search lol.

Will anyone else match GS on the playstation pro for 350? I would prefer to avoid buying it from them.

Those releases were for a dying console that didn't sell. Big selling games for a brand new Nintendo system rarely drop in price.

Games aside, and this is not meant to be a oh BF sucks post but does anyone feel like prices have gone up on everything since last year? Yes there are some good deals, but the actual price I paid for a few items last year.... seems to be less than this year for some reason, Last year I was getting SD cards for $5 (Officemax) and now I do not see any in the ads under $10, I paid $15 for a premium brand 64GB SD card last year now it seems to be $17-25 for the same thing. I did see one 64GB SD card in the walmart ad for $14, but that's a whole dollar less than last year, usually these things go down in price, not up. Prepaid phones that were previously under $10 with 1-2 exceptions are now $30 and up.. Best Buy's sale on Logitech PC peripherals is now up to 50% off and last year it was a straight 50% off everything. No real deals on 3DS games, in the past there were lots of deals on these. Glad I stocked up on stuff last year, because unless retailers are saving it for the last second, the deals I am seeing are nowhere like last year, but if you want a PS4 or Xbox one, the deals are pretty good for those, that is if you do not have one already.

I still have a giftcard for Gamestop from the Tradeathon Flipathon shit that went down earlier this year. So I guess I am finally going to get a PS4 from Gamestop, and use the Giftcard they give to get a few games. Then Best Buy to buy Disgaea 5 for the switch. Other than that, this seems like a pretty lackluster Black Friday.
