 After watching a bunch of footage, I am now sold on Skyrim VR and will be buying the game yet again. I also want the Switch version, but I will hold off on that one for awhile. The VR experience should give me a reason to spend some quality time with my PSVR.

Kingdom Hearts with GCU = BF price
Any chance there will be elite early access and GCU will apply to BF?
Cyber Monday should hopefully work again if the game is included in that

Nah. GCU won't work for anything considered to be part of the Black Friday ad and that includes Early Access. Should be fine for Cyber Monday though.

Why is Batman on Switch $40 when it originally sold for $25 on the other consoles? Even the retail version was only $30

It is the Switch tax. Look at L.A. Noire.  The Switch version is $10 more than the XB1/PS4 versions.

So, roll the dice and hold off for Cyber Monday then? I feel like not as many games were on sale CM last year compared with BF.

Just buy it now and either keep it sealed or enjoy it. If it’s cheaper on Cyber Monday just buy it again and return it with your receipt from buying it now.

Well, at least HZD and Uncharted:TLL worked with GCU during early Black Friday access for everyone.  That was a pleasant surprise.  Maybe they will have more/different BF specials available next week as well.

They are charging more because cartridges cost more than discs to manufacture.  From what I can see they won't go above 59.99 but everything else is fair game to be $10 more expensive than on other consoles or digital.

Yeah but look at that Ben 10 game. It's $30 on all three platforms. Never heard of Outright Games but good on them for eating the likely $2 more it costs to make a cartridge in order to have price parity. It's either that or they are overcharging for the PS4/XB1 version. :D

Doesn't Nintendo sell them for the same price digital?
If they announced that this was the reasoning but then sold it for the same price as PS4/XB1 digitally, I wouldn't mind so much

For the most part, yes. I recall something about they have to sell their games at the same price both physically and digitally on the Switch. I think only a few games broke this rule by selling the digital copy cheaper, but got around it by including some extras in their physical copies to make up the price difference.

There were alot of games last year that were cheaper within a few weeks after the Thanksgiving weekend sales because gcu worked with the sale too. If you got a backlog wait cause it will probably be cheaper before New year's. The new Cod always around $30 like the day after xmas

Wish LA Noire was more than a remaster. So much wasted potential on such a unique game.

Exactly. Almost every game I bought at Best Buy last year during Black Friday ended up being a cheaper at some point in December due to a lower price with GCU. The only downside was, personally, I was forced to do multiple return/rebuys because of Best Buy online weirdly applying their "no price matching Black Friday" policy backwards. I tried to argue that it was only for people who bought items prior to Black Friday trying to price match on Black Friday, and I was repeatedly told that it also applied to items bought on BF but on sale for cheaper later.

I think it has something to do with the size of the game.  A larger game like LA Noire will cost more to manufacture on Switch so the publisher charges more.  A smaller game like Ben 10 may not cost as much so the publisher doesn't upcharge the Switch version.  I could be wrong but I believe I read this somewhere.  Either way I have a feeling it will definitely hurt multi-port third party Switch game sales.

No one seems to have said this yet but all of the pre-black friday games that are Black friday pricing are working with GCU.. maybe because it's not yet Black Friday.

I was already considering :ps4: Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 for $19 at Walmart on BF. $20 at BB after GCU, and I get to use that $10 cert they randomly sent out the other day, makes this an easy pickup.

Just a sidenote re: Best Buy gift cards -- if you purchase $50 of Best Buy gift cards and have a Plenti card at Rite-Aid, you can receive 800 points to your account which translates to $8 for later use.

Looks like you can get two of them.  Right before BF weekend this will come in handy.  So its $16 in free Plenti Points with $100 in BB gift cards.  Nice.
