Pretty underwhelming so far. Some solid deals though.

Yea in terms of some 3ds and Switch games it's rather underwhelming. But at least there's some decent stuff out there.

What's the title of the best buy mystery certificate email. So far the emails I got from them don't have anything about it yet.

I wonder what are the odds that best buy will have another digital game sale sale again?

Video Games have been uploaded to my spreadsheet for Best Buy.

 

I will get to the movies tomorrow after I get home from work. It is currently 3AM and need to get some sleep, haha.

Since people are posting their Black Friday wish lists, here is mine: Anything that I can rip from the hands of a crying child.

It's a joke. I live in a college town, nobody is at my Target for Black Friday. I showed up less than an hour before Black Friday last year, and I was the 8th person in line. I should be able to get whatever I want, because all of the students will be long gone. The only thing that sucks, is the store closes it's self checkouts on Black Friday, and they only had six cash register people last year. I spent more time in line waiting to check out, then I did actually shopping for anything. The only downside of living in a small college town, is that we only have a Target, and nothing else.

I (sort of) asked this question earlier in the thread but maybe I did a lousy job wording it, so let me try a different way --

 

In the first post in this thread, if a game is listed with XB1/PS4 icons that is also available on Switch - let's use NBA 2K19 at Target as an example - does that mean that ONLY the XB1/PS4 versions of the game are on sale? Some games have all three icons next to them, others do not - even though multiple versions are not necessarily shown in the ad.

 

I'm basically just trying to find out if a game's available for Switch as well as the other systems, if it'll be available for the same price.

Walmart blows this year. Best Buy killing it again.

Game wise only really interested in Soul Calibur 6 and maybe Lego Incredibles.

I would check the spreadsheet for reference as I dont buy switch games.

I need a VR headset and one of those auto fleshlights. I don't even care about a 4k TV if I can get those 2 on sale.

I don't wanna sound stupid but how are yall seeing the full list at best buy? I use a site with ad scans and it has arrows to click but... It's a scan so I can't click them. Didn't see the ad on their official site either.

Edit : nvm some kind soul posted a list in the other thread.

Nintendo is a weird ecosystem when it comes to sales on their games. As a rule of thumb, if the ad didn't specifically mention the switch title, it is safe to assume it isn't on sale. It also could be on sale, but for a different price. Why? We assume it is 'Nintendo tax'.

Something I was expecting to see at a few places and yet doesn't appear to be featured anywhere: Shadow Of The Colossus.  As a remastered title that's hit $20 or so already this year, I was expecting $10-15 somewhere on BF.

 

So just Gamestop left to wait for, right?  Any idea historically when they've released theirs?  Probably going to wait until after this weekend with Pro Day.

So for Switch deals, it looks like the only options are the $270 deal through Newegg or the $300 MK8 bundle everywhere else?

 

Now to decide if it's worth buying MK8D when I already have the Wii U version.

Thanks, I appreciate the response. Luckily for me, the specific game I'm looking for appears to indeed be on sale for the price I wanted at Best Buy. So thankfully, it's looking like a win!

Last year those bastards waited until very last minute.

Anything I can get there I will. As long as prices are the same.

Google Express 20% off deal last week was better than both of those deals. $240 and no tax in most places. 

 

 

 

I am hoping for Gamestop to at least match Walmart/BB on some of the game deals so I can use credit instead of cash. Mainly MH Generations, Just Dance and Forza.

So since the major stores ads are out it's looking like I should actually take advantage of Meijerd buy 2 get 1 free this week and grab Mario Party, Mario Odyssey, and Octopath traveler.

I was certain someone would have a deal on Mario Odyssey this year.

DQ11 is nice. Sicario 2 4K for 10 dollars is also very nice.

 

... Think that's it for me.
