Any chance those prices will be online as well? Almost missed thanksgiving dinner last year. I had made it t o Wal-Mart and pretty much found all the games I wanted. But I was stuck in line to check out. So I said eff this and left empty handed.

I'm liking wofenstein and forza 7 at $29
Injustice 2 a nd tekken at $19


Prices are usually available online even before the stores open. I'm often out of town for thanksgiving, so I have to do it all on my phone.

Was not expecting the $29 assassins creed origins. that solidifies my purchase. Hopefully Amazon price matches that price so I can use that $10 coke rewards gift money.

Solid deal for Nioh. In for a 45 mins checkout line to pay for a game I'll never even play.

Mario and Rabbids for $29 looks pretty good. Hopefully, it'll be online as well.

I remember last time the Walmart website was going slow and the games I wanted sold out while I was checking out. Hopefully that doesn't happen again.

In for Watch dogs 2, dishonored 2, mafia 3, Rayman and Prey. No mention of Darks Souls 3 or XCOM 2 hopefully someone comes through.

Assassin's Creed: Origins for $29 is a killer deal.

Does anyone know if Walmart puts these prices online during Thanksgiving or Black Friday? I usually shop BB for the holidays.

Lowest price for NFS Payback and Skyrim I believe. Although for NFS, the reviews suggest it's not worth $29.

Online deals are live first minute of Thanksgiving(Thursday morning) and in-store deals start at 6pm of Thanksgiving.

Same here. If it's not available online I'll hold out for a sale at Best Buy.

Yeah, and some of them are $25, too. If you look at the depth overall of the discounts of newish games at different price points I don’t see how you could say Walmart beat BB.

I’ve had luck the past couple years going to Walmart thanksgiving morning before the sale starts. The games either Locked up on the shelf or out in the plastic coffins were ringing up at the Black Friday price that morning. Was able to grab Doom (PS4) and Kingdom Hearts (PS3) and a few movies cheap with out the crowds. And yes, Doom and KH are still sitting on my shelf, sealed lol. =)

The link for the $500 gaming PC, looks like you save around $150 before tax.

https://www.walmart....ws-10/803136621

 

I can't seem to find this model number on the first page of a Google search, so I'm assuming it's a special model specifically for BF and/or Walmart. You can see evidence of them being cheap in the pictures; there's only one type-C and one USB 3.0 port in the front. I'm assuming there's two more - hopefully three - USB ports in the back. It also utilizes a combination headphone/microphone jack instead of two separate ones. The GTX 1060 is the 3 GB version, the stronger variations seem to have 6 GB.

 

You're still getting a lot of bang for your buck with a core i5 and GTX 1060 in general though.

The 3GB 1060 might be an issue for some, though still probably can't beat this price - or really even get close to it with an NVIDIA card. Beggars can't be choosers basically, and as this is about the max I'd consider throwing at any computer at this point, I"m definitely a "beggar". Right now I don't see anything close to similar for less than $700 or $800. That HP Omen that's been on sale at Best Buy a few times I don't believe has breached $700 (currently $819) - and though it's probably a better machine overall it also uses the 3GB 1060. I've been tempted by that one, but I haven't had a desktop PC in like 15+ years so it's tough for me to commit unless the price is just rediculous and it can do legit gaming. $499 gets me close to ridiculous.

 

Unless there is some fatal flaw, like the system uses a weak PSU that will blow up on you, $499 seems like a great price. I"m definitely considering going for this. I would assume the 3GB GPU could be upgraded in a few years, and maybe the next gen model (or 2 gens out) of the same card starts at 6GB instead of 3GB while drawing similar power.

 

Being a desktop, I would assume there'd be no issues with soldered RAM or anything like that?

Been doing this for the past 4 years. All of the black Friday prices are live in store early in the morning. Hopefully it continues this year.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated! I'm thinking about picking one up to be our new family gaming computer. We don't need a $2000 rig, as my kids usually prefer to get most of the newest AAA games on PS4 or Xbox One - but my oldest son also likes games like Civ VI or XCom 2 on the PC and our current 6-7 year old desktop isn't cutting it.

Which Need for Speed game is better, Need for Speed or Rivals?

My kids are into racing games and they played a ton of Most Wanted (vita) on the PS TV. Thinking of getting them one of the two games for Christmas. Thanks!

Sadly, this franchise keeps going downhill. Most Wanted was definitely better than either of those games (though I assume you are now talking going to a PS4 version).

 

If you are talking PS4 you might want to look into Dirt 4 or Driveclub.

 

If Xbox or PC of course there's Forza Horizon 3 or Forza 7 to consider.

Which Most Wanted was it - the one by Criterion or the one by Black Box?    I would recommend both.  Frankly, you're almost better off picking up one of these than the new ones.   Other excellent racing games include Blur and Split Second.

 

Of course, all of these are PS3/360 -- not sure if they're BC with Xbox One.

 

BTW, I think at least one of the 2 NFS games you mentioned requires to be online all the time

Thank you both. I was considering the ps4 versions of both, but will pass based on your responses. I will keep Dirt 4 in mind, but the kids already have a ton of games on their wish lists... just like their father lol.

The new need for speed is a cross between forza horizon 3 and burnout paradise. I enjoy this need for speed but didn't enjoy rivals.

I loved rivals and have been waiting for a followup that just never materializes. Given the reviews of the new one, my waiting continues. :(
