So, I've been looking through the ads for a 40ish inch 4K TV to go along with my recently purchased Xbox One X. But I've been having trouble finding out which are best compatible with the X (HDR10) and which aren't. Can anybody recommend one? I'm trying to spend as little as I can. $350 max, if that's even possible.

Do you have to sign up for a Kohl's card or use a Kohl's card to get the Koh's cash with these deals?


Nope. Just make your purchase.

The REDcard, is that the same as the BlueBird except for Target and 5%? I do have access to a bluebird.

 

I'm debating who has the best deals on console. So far, Target is #2 pick.

RDR2 Ps4 Pro bundle is still $349 at AAFES.


Applying BNCEBACK25 code drops the price to $299. Great deal for sure.

I feel like at that price, you're sadly going to sacrifice either HDR performance or input lag.  I see the Samsung NU6900 and LG UK6090PUA at Best Buy, but both have poor HDR colors apparently.

Damn! Wish I knew someone in the military. Great deal! Good for all who qualify. You deserve it and so much more!

I was going to buy an XB1S for black Friday and then just heard about MS releasing an XB1 next year for $199.99 or less with and without a disc drive. So why the heck would I buy one now?!!

Um, having a choice of using a disc is better than not having it. I often find disc copies for less than they're sold on Xbox Live.

Yeah the option is really smart, but I'll always pick disc drive over not.

I had read that it was only one console, disc-less and apparently not in the Scarlett next-gen family. I wouldn't let that news prevent you from getting a One S at a good price point this BF.

This is a stupid question but I legit don't know the answer. Do the retailers offer the same prices for digital games if they have them?

Sorry in advance, this is my first all digital year

Just picked up the Pokémon bundle from Target for the kid. Bought an extra ball (not sure if necessary) for 2 player. I also picked up branded Smash controller. It was $50!!! I thought i saw somewhere that Nintendo accessories will be on sale. Has anyone else seen this? There is so much going on with sales. Thanks for the spreadsheet that makes it easier to keep up.

Wait, what branded Smash Bros controller? The Pro controller doesn't come out until Dec, which would be an absolute steal but obviously that's not what you're talking about.

Say, isn't there a Gamestop sneak peek leaked somewhere? Even if there isn't, shouldn't OP put a spot for it? Or am I just blind.

I checked the receipt and the extra Pokeball was $50. Not sure we need an extra but I am downloading the Pokémon Go app to get the full experience. The controller is a black Smash branded controller and it was $30. BTW an article on IGN said that the UK will have a shortage of the controller adapters. No word if it will affect us but if you need one you should grab it now just to be safe.

This is hit or miss. No one does it consistently to say they will do it again.

I think it’s the GameCube controller which is already out:

What do you think of the Samsung Galaxy S7 ($199) vs Samsung J7 Crown ($79)? They are both on wally world's page 8.

I hear some phones have terrible battery life. Would be nice to video and take pics at the same time.

Looking for a good no contract deal. That's what I have it narrowed down to so far.

I currently have an S7 and am looking to upgrade on BF. It's usable but just an absolute nightmare. Since the last few updates, the battery drains rapidly and everything has become much more sluggish. It is already past its prime. It is not a phone you wanna buy today and stick with for 2 years. Apps just constantly become more demanding with each update. This phone is basically a 78 year old on viagra. It can perform but you're utterly disgusted.

Anyone know is the PSVR bundles on sale the latest hardware or the original models?

Looking at amazon firestick and roku se. Opinions on which is better?

 

I'll be using it on the hisense tv from wally world. I should be lucky enough to grab one. Something for gaming.

 

Looking for something less expensive than dish/directv and still have plenty of options. I usually pc stream fox/abc/cbs for 9-1-1, station 19, ncis/la and bull. On tv I'll watch cartoon network, home improvement (up), last man standing (cmt) and things like black sails and spartacus.

 

(edit) Now I'm seeing fire tv. $15 extra for an adapter. Is the adapter required for wired or are there better/less expensive options? Looks like other roku as well.

Yes that is controller that I bought today. We should now have enough controllers with the wired and pro controllers.

Are we really not getting any Playstation 4 Pro deals? Is it pretty much confirmed by now?

Does anyone know if the 55” Elements TV from Target forces that motion-smoothing (frame interpolation) feature? That’s a deal-breaker for me unless it can be turned off.

Ah. You're welcome! I wish you luck and I hope it works out.

It did!  I managed to snag a Switch and MK8D for the same exact price I would have paid for the bundle.  Not only do I get the game physically, but between this and a couple other early deals, I managed to finish all my BF shopping today!  My OCD thanks you.

 

Highly recommend that anyone with a Meijer nearby consider the deals they have going this week.  In some weird twist, Meijer has been the place that I've purchased my last two consoles.

Wasn't sure it this has been asked or not, but is Marvel's Spider Man for PS4 going on sale on Black Friday? Game only, no bundles or anything like that!

 

Also, anything on Battlefield V? Or no? Since it's just being released!

Spider-Man isn't on sale anywhere next week as far as I see. But it's 40 on eBay today, and people may sell their bundled copies cheap... You can probably get it for 30.

The Shield TV is the best streaming device. It does 4K which is a big deal these days, and there will likely be a Black Friday deal for it somewhere. If you're not willing to drop between $150 to $200, Amazon has been having sales on its Firestick and Fire TV products over the past few days. But I love my Shield TV!
