Go Astrobot/Moss bundle 

But I need move controllers. And without researching the other games, I know I'll like Superhot since I have the normal and Creed intrigues me.

It's so nice to start seeing Amazon's Black Friday prices this early so we can all plan ahead.

I just bought the PS4 move controller two-pack from B&H for $79 and change. That's a decent ($20) discount.

Last month I bought the Astrobot/Moss bundle, so the games alone are worth $70 to me. As opposed to the Creed/Superhot bundle, where I was only interested in Superhot VR and got that on the PSVR sale for $16. So it kinda works out in the end, you just have to look at what you would normally spend money on and whether it's cheaper piecemeal or bundled.

Also, note that Skyrim VR is $25 this weekend during GameStop PowerPro Days. And it's regularly $20-$25 on Ebay because people sell their bundle parts to cheapen the total cost. So again, look at the total cost of what you want to buy and see what works out best for you.

Anyone know if state of decay 2 ultimate edition will be included in the sale? I know it states state of decay 2 for $15, I assume that’s the standard edition.

Likely Detroit, Rabbids, Bayonetta (yucky price but whatever), and maybe Monster Hunter though I'm never too fond of those games (not sure why I keep trying haha).

So the logitech harmony one remote for $60... is it worth it?
Read some of the reviews, control buttons on top are wierd and i guess the lcd can be sluggish?

This might be the first BF where I don't buy any games at all. But I like some of those UHD deals.

Anybody that thinks they are going to "forget" to take GCU off the BF deals at any point that week (Early Access or other wise) is going to be disappointed. The last time it happened was a glitch that probably cost them plenty. They aren't in the business of losing money. ;)

Interested in God of War for $25 and AC Odyssey for $30. Maybe Fighter Z for $20, though WM will have it for $17 (probably worth the extra $3 not to deal with WM).

 

They mention Far Cry 4 but not AC Origins? Still waiting for a retailer to have a BF price for that. Just hoping it hits $15.

They list AC Origins, $20.

Nier and probably AC Odyssey for me :)  The 4TB Western Digital external drive is also tempting as I'm still using an older 500gb.

The negative reviews are overblown, but should be heeded.  The remote is great, but does have it's drawbacks.  I don't know if this $60 price is the one with the hub or not, but you need a hub to fully appreciate the setup.  $60 with a hub is a solid deal.

Just want ac odyssey gold edition lowered. No luck

 

 

Ubisoft seems to actually make these more limited nowadays. It used to be they were overproduced and then clearance. Haven't seen that trend for gold editions in a while.

Just looked, this one doesnt have the hub.
$180 for the hub version at BB.. or can buy the hub on amazon for $65 or so.

Ill try it without the hub for now.

Contemplating the Acer Nitro at $600 (GTX 1050 Ti - 256 GB SSD). I could use a newer laptop for work, being my current is from 2013, and also something for my own leisure would be nice. (Side note: I have an extra 8 gig memory stick and 2.5 drive available to expand the unit)

I've heard good reviews about this model, but wondering if anyone here has any direct experience with it?

Amazon runs semi-frequent deals with the remote and the hub for about 70.  The remote you get is whatever they have extras of at the time.  Just a heads up in case you were willing to hold out. I like the hub because I can then use my phone AND Alexa to control my TV which is great when I cannot find the remote, which is always.

Detroit Become Human at $19.99 is a pleasant surprise. Some good stuff here, though a little disappointed there's no $399 One X bundle, like WM...only $420.


The Walmart X isn't a bundle. It's just the system.

The Best Buy deal is the system and a second controller and battlefield V and battlefield 1 complete, and battlefield 1943. It's a way better deal. You could easily sell the battlefield V code for $40-50 alone.

It's this year's Uncharted 4. No sales at all for the game alone, only as a bundle. Maybe you could buy the game from someone who buys the bundle?

Just make sure you mail the code rather than email it if you want to avoid getting scammed.

Uncharted 4 also ended up at GameStop for $10 bc of those bundles, so hoping if I can’t score it for under $40 before Christmas that the value will plummet to $20 in the new year.

I noticed that Best Buy as a SanDisk Ultra Plus 128GB card on sale, that I was thinking of getting for my upcoming Switch.  Does anyone know enough about SD cards to tell me why this one usually retails for so much higher than the SanDisk Ultra (not Plus) that has a higher read speed?  Is it the write speed that makes all the difference?

I think it's for the write speed. On a Switch it won't matter much as you'll read way more than you'll write. Considering the price for this one is lower than Ultra usually is, I would go for it.

 

My Switch has a regular Ultra 128GB U1 (paid $25, currently $23 on Amazon) and hasn't had any problems. There are also U3 cards, but not necessary for the Switch.

i'll probably have to wait another 6 months for price to drop, like i did with god of war.
