Last time I was this early for Black Friday I was in line at KB toys for a buy 1 get 1 special on games. Went in expecting to get Mass Effect 1, AC1, Orange Box, and anything else that was awesome in 2007. Discovered they only had PSP shovelware even available to buy once the store opened. :/

With the number of deals that have been going on in the weeks leading up to BF in years prior, the day had lost some of its luster until last year. There were some killer video game deals on BF last year at multiple stores.  First time that I had spent significant money on BF/Thanksgiving in a few years.

Let’s do this 😎
Xbox one x for $350 would be ideal but I think it’ll go just $50 off ;(

Not sure I'll be buying much this year with Red Dead Redemption 2 and Fallout 76 consuming my free time.

Over at Forbes magazine, Gordon Kelly has been predicting what might be in the Black Friday ads for Target and Walmart. These predictions are based on what were in the ads last year and apparently NOT on insider info. 

 

For Target he predicted:

 

Sony PS4 Pro Bundle with $25 gift card for $274.99

 

XBox One X Bundle with $25 gift card for $399.99

 

Expect the Target ad to be released on November 5th

 

 

For Walmart he predicted:

 

Sony PS4 Pro Bundle for $274.99

 

Xbox One X Bundle with $30 gift card for $399.99

 

Nintendo Switch bundle with game or memory card for $299.99

 

Expect the Walmart ad on November 8th.

Those all seem likely. $275 PS4 Pros will sell like crazy. I could possibly finally bite on an Xbox One X at one of these prices too, but still, $400 is a bit much for a system with no exclusives I care to play right now.
