$100 off Switch? Consider me sceptical.

The spacing is WAY off on that screenshot. Take this with a huge grain of salt, but it looks fake.

Same here. Still thought this should be shared though.

This is from the Walmart clearance thread and it's not final. L O L

I see no reason why Switch consoles would get such deep discounts

Not making a new BF thread for this since it's an incomplete ad. This is Walmart's BF 2019 ad showing only part of the videogame consoles page. I did not obtain this page, it was shared to me. I have no idea if it is real or legit but have faith in my source. The ad is still in the testing phase and not complete at all. This may not be what prices are once the ad is out and this should be taken with a grain of salt. Enjoy, but again, this is not the finished product.

I really hope the Switch is $199 and the Lite is $149 just to spite everyone saying they would never be on sale. You can buy a PS4/Xbone together for $300 and play all the big 3rd party games, so it would be in their best interest.

My thoughts exactly... especially the Switch Lite. I could see bundles being offered but a 33% cut on the regular and a 25% cut on the Light is hard to believe. I also feel like that PS4 Pro price is weak. PS4 sales have been staggered due to all the talk of the PS5, I'd think Sony would offer a bundle at that price.

Eh I dunno Switch Lite has already been down to 170 in a few spots. This is the price I'm hoping for TBH and if I can't get it, I'm hoping for a $60 game to be bundled with it. I passed at the 170  because I was really hoping for 150.

lol why would you need an Xbone to play big third party games when you already have a PS4?

This ad looks way off. I would agree that it's fake.

Didn't want to make a thread since it isn't officially anything. It's a mock up from those making the ad but nothing is set in stone. For all they know it could be changed to bundles at $200 for Switch Lites instead of a $50 drop or Switch Bundles could be backstock for V1 and not on V2.

This is why I said originally to take the ad with a grain of salt.

Look at every ad in history. Ever seen them occupy so little space on a page? No. Fake.

Nintendo is one more holiday season away from surpassing Xbox One for second place this generation at $300 so no way in hell is Nintendo of all companies going to lower the price. And Switch Lite $150 two months after launch? That's not happening either.

If they're gonna push and push hard to increase their install base as much as they can before Sony drops the PS5, this would be a good way to do it. Especially if they're unloading back stock of the older model Switch at that price. The Switch Lite though, I don't see it getting more than a $25 cut, a bundle offer seems more likely however.

Switch for $199? No way, this is Nintendo we are talking about.

the thing is, while this ad may be fake, the retailer can take that loss if they want. Nintendo may not have an official sale and the store can still price it that way for a few days. I remember 3DS at some stores, named HEB, on Black Friday in 2011 for $99 new, even after the $80 price cut to $170

Do know that prices are not set by Nintendo or anyone unless it is a product specifically made for Black Friday such as the Mario 3DS Black Friday Bundle which had it's own MSRP of $100.

Stores can drop prices for Black Friday as they want otherwise which is why you'll see games from years ago going for $10 - $20. Usually those games are backstock that they are trying to get rid of.

Also stores can have door busters for ridiculous prices but it means nothing when each store only has 6 in stock and the price is only active from 6pm to 8pm (which stores have done in the past, look at Kohl's or Old Navy with the Super Mario Wii giveaway).

I don't know if these prices are the final prices, and they can change too. Grain of salt and all that.

This is poorly done. The green xbox circle was obviously photoshopped in. The boxes at the top aren't even lined up straight. "All items in the ad" and "Sorry, no rainchecks" is not Walmart language. The font work is pretty badly done. I could see this as a mockup for the design of the web/print ad, but I can't see these prices being anything other than a mock-up.

Not disagreeing with the other stuff but no rainchecks and all items in ad is exactly what Walmart puts in their Black Friday ads.

Here is the ad from last year showing the same. https://www.bfads.ne...ay/2018/page-15

Eww...that's as low as they're all going to get?

A PS4 slim for $150 when Walmart offered a Spider-Man bundle last year for $200.  $200 Switch deal seems decent compared to last year's Mario Kart 8 bundle for $300.

That $150 Xbox SAD Black Friday price seems still like that should be the now price.

So what you're saying is there's no way to edit an existing photo?
