Will these BB prices on Xbox and PS4 games only apply to physical copies or will they apply to digital versions as well?

Seems people forgetting that they do unadvertised sales over Black Friday weekend so not everything you see here is what you’re getting.

Lots of prices here are incrediblely uncompetitive. I got Crash Trilogy for Switch from BB for $20 months ago. Overwatch is always on sale for $30 - the fact it's 30 on BF is really dumb. But Detroit, GoW, The Evil Within 2 and maybe AC Origins are some great candidates. Betting Persona 5 will be $20 during some January sale.

Are preview items available in store for the same price?

All this talk of TVs... I discovered a couple years back that if you just want a huge screen for a great relative price, BF is the time to shop.  Otherwise, the last week of January offers the better quality picture at a great size and price.  Why?  Superbowl is right around the corner.

 

If you're debating between an OLED and an LCD and which is going to have better blacks, etc, wait another couple of months - leave Black Friday for the guys who want to show off their washed-out 65" screens they got for $500.

I’m in the market for a new TV myself. My new PS4 Pro is having issues with my 10+ year old Samsung. Picture showed up fine first, but whenever I boot it up now, the screen flickers black. It’s not the PS4 since I hooked it up to two other TVs and it plays fine.

I’m thinking of investing an going for an LG OLED, I want a TV that does both HDR10 and Dolby Vision. I’d like a new TV soon, but waiting a few months to save substantial money would be great as well.

Don't think this has been posted in either thread yet. Seems like they want to get a head start on getting people their stuff before Thursday this year. :D

Hopefully some games go live so I can stack GCU.

Yes, I went in yesterday to use my mystery coupon and all the preview items had the online prices in store.

Is the Super Bowl sale real? Multiple years I waited and nothing came other than more items listed in the ad for mediocre discounts. Realistically Spring is the right time when the old models are being cleared out.

I would wholeheartedly recommend not buying games if you have GCU. Pretty sure last year everything went on sale for the same or lower between BF and xmas.

Maybe not everything but several games.  Not last year but the year before I bought 5 games AFTER BF same price or cheaper and GCU worked.  I didn't buy anything last year after BF though.

 

Not too much I am looking for anyway.  Might wait and see it Detroit is $19.99 after BF.   There is a 4GB external HD for $79 and a 32GB USB stick.  Might get that to replace the external HD on my XBox One.  I have a 2GB that is way past half full.  Also wondering if it is starting to fail maybe.  Available now.

Aha. I thought he meant the actual "Early Access" sale.

Don't forget Madden and FIFA are on sale at Walmart right now for $29 with in store pick up. Save yourself the trip or hassle.

IIRC, early access will give me 20% off at BB. But thank you!

Last year, there were no real deals on Cyber Monday that were better then Black Friday. However, two years ago, I had to do a bunch of returns/rebuys when CM prices were better. Unless you are stuck at your credit limit, it doesn’t hurt to buy now and buy again if needed.

Sorry, Early Access is considered Black Friday and GCU will not work.

 

Can we put this in the OP?

No one reads the OP. You should know this by now. 😎

I'll be up to see if there's any glitches or not. Either way, it's a good way to jumpstart on my BF shopping list and avoid the rush.

I wanted that Mutant Footbal League
It looks horribly good , but I don’t see for switch,
And I also don’t see Mario party !
Eh that’s too bad

Still great list considering the year we had seen after GCU was Assassinated
