Black Friday 2019 Video Game Deals - Master Thread, Spreadsheet, and General Black Friday Discussion

I have seen talk of Death Stranding being a Black Friday discount, but so far I haven't seen any real hint of that happening. I wonder if it's just going to be too soon?

It's not even out yet.   Games that come out November or later have their release dates positioned in that way so they don't have to go on sale for Black Friday. 

 

It'll probably go on sale around Christmas week for $44.99-49.99 at a couple places.   Or else you can just buy it at Walmart now that their standard retail pricing is $49.94 on pretty much all new games.  But I doubt that you'll find it cheaper until early 2020.  Sony has exclusivity on it too so it's even more likely to maintain it's pricing for longer.

Oh shit, here we go. May as well subscribe to the thread, even though no spreadsheet has been posted yet and we're already on post 30.

I haven't seen Death Stranding reduced anywhere. Personally, I'm in no hurry to buy it. Reviews seem less than enthralled, and while I'm still interested in playing, I don't see the point of rushing into it when it will inevitably drop like a rock.

That $199.99 Xbox One S 1TB Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Bundle with $40 Gift Card should be a pretty hot gift this year. 

 

Wish we could have gotten that for my nephew this year instead of my mom paying $300+ for some bullshit XB1S Minecraft pack-in bundle thing like a scrub. 

 

It has me tempted, but the X is $245 (technically) at Kohl's this year. I'd much rather have the best version of a system that I can buy. Which is why I'm waiting to find out if Nintendo will make a Pro version of the Switch before buying one.

Two years ago when they had that coupon to take a percentage off that worked with price match was the best deal I'd seen until now. Got that exact bundle for $140 straight up, so yeah: that's unfortunate. :(

Finally; the best time of the year is here! Been waiting for the thread to go up. Thanks to everyone for their hard work contributing to it!

I'd like an X too, but it makes absolutely no sense to put $300 + tax towards one of those today when there will be a much more desirable Xbox and PS5 for ~$500 (my estimation) in about ten months.

I can see that. I never buy new consoles right away anymore though. I didn't even get the PS4 until the Pro was released. I expect the PS5 and Xbox Scarlet to eventually get upgrades too, so I am holding off on buying them day one.

Hopefully I can get a $30 copy or close to it for Gears A5 since I caught a deal on Red Dead 2 the other day that was the only other game I was looking for.

was the same, got burned even waiting after xbox consoles were released with the halo ce le console, crapped out a year later after announceing the s as the new basic console and wasnt caring about sony till a pro was announced and that it was the way to go if u wanted decent vr support which was still crappy, its best to look for x deals/upgrades if u looking for a solid backup since they will likely stop making s models shortly after the new consoles hits then x's after or vice versa

Here's hoping for some good Switch deals.

 

The Target AD for it is disappointing but individual games like Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda BotW and Mario Tennis Aces I'll take.

Astral Chain is the one game I'm hoping gets a decent discount, but I have a bad feeling based on Target's ad. I have GCU for just 2 more weeks so maybe I should just get it for 48 while I still have the chance.

As of now I am looking at Target with the buy 2 get 1 on 4k movies.  They just released a bunch of Disney movies and I am trying to recall any Black Friday deals going on last year with regards to Disney movies.  My family would love to get some of these and it would be a great gift to the entire family from me.

I wanna say I got The Incredibles 2 and Coco for $10, Avengers for $15 at Best Buy last year. All 4k

I think last year a bunch of the Disney classics stuff like Peter Pan and Beauty and the Beast were $10 at Best Buy. Though if that doesn't pan out, Disney+ is up next week.

Will 4K and Blu deals be posted here too? This is probably the first year where I plan on buying movies along with games. Been holding out on a lot of titles lately.

People tend to post them in this thread as it covers other stuff than just games.  Also, https://forum.blu-ray.com/ is a good place to look for deals for movies.

There are threads for 4k movie deals here on CAG in Blu-ray& DVD Deals. There is also a thread for Steelbooks which a lot are 4k. Not sure if we see many 4k steelbooks on sale but I post there when I find good sales.

FYI - Death Stranding is $59.99 at Walmart, even in store. No $10 discount in store for this one.

Wondering when the spreadsheet will pop up online... With Target having made their ad available, I'm thinking that the sheet will ultimately come about soon enough.

 

 

One of the deals I am very hopeful of seeing is Gamestop returning the free Xbox 360 rebate promotion. While a large amount of the Xbox 360 games are available on Xbox One, I do think that a few of the titles were missed out on. Games like the Fear trilogy (which I haven't really heard of until a bunch of Redditors mention how it missed out), Call of Duty Classic (they missed out on the original Call Of Duty)... And I would appreciate getting some games off of my Xbox One hard drive and being able to play them in their physical glory. (Also, playing the original versions of games like Bulletstorm and such would really help me to boost my gamer score).

 

A few deals that piqued my interest from the Target ad:

Control $25

Modern Warfare $45

Borderlands 3 $35

Red Dead 2 $30

Judgement $30

Catherine FB $30 (I'll see about playing more of the original Catherine on Xbox 360 and how interested I am from that)

Team Sonic $15

Mario and Rabbids $15

50" 4k TV for $150 (I'm thinking of just waiting for an 8K tv and saving up for that.)

 

A big maybe for me is the Playstation VR at $200.

 

Hopefully I'll still be able to see an Elite Controller V2 deal. That would be awesome. But anyhow, these are some really nice deals to look forward to!

 

My most likely pre tax/shipping: 

$325 (Excluding Catherine FB and the Playstation VR, my maybes))

As with previous years, target didn't really seem to lead the pack with blowout deals. But I'm willing to give them a chance, since I have been hired on with a nearby one seasonally, hopefully gonna be a regular at the end of the contracted term as I continue my search for a career. 

 

Excuse me, that was a lot of text!

 

Edit:

I do hope someone brings up a good deal for Hitman 2 Gold Edition. It's taken over my entire game library this year, and I have 0 regrets about preordering it for $100. This is by far and large my favorite game ever played, and I hope you guys get the chance to experience it for yourselves!)

Thanks; I love Blu-Ray.com.

I’m aware of the Blu-Ray & DVD Deals section of the website, but it doesn’t seem to be very active a lot. I doubt a separate thread will be made there. I’ll just hope to see them in this thread or via Blu-Ray.com

Meanwhile NFS Heat is gonna bomb so bad that Target has it as a $35 deal. BEFORE IT EVEN RELEASES. I'm gonna simply wait for EA Access. (I did that for Payback, and I was surprised with the quality!)

I know some ppl are going for that Target XB1-S bundle. But I'm personally going for the Costco XB1-S bundle (1tb S console, 2 controllers, 3 month Game Pass for $200) if the price doesn't change at all (currently $300 and itssupposed to go $100 off). I can buy it online and not have to deal with Black Friday shoppers lol

All I really want at this point is a discount on the Sega Genesis Mini. Is that really so much to ask for?
