Yeah, I gave up waiting on them since they can't start on time and surprise! I missed nothing. . .


To play devil's advocate, I think they do that to throw off bots from grabbing all the good stuff right away. Still annoying when you're up late waiting for the sale to start so you can sleep.

Are save files compatible between base Spider-Man game and the GOTY edition?

Well it's pathetic because they clearly dont care about their customer base, they only care about money *InB4 "Well no shit duhhh!?!?!"* why would you want to support that?

Charging $300 with absolutely nothing substantial included for an OG model of a primarily handheld gaming device almost 3 years after release is absurd.

EDIT: Its also crazy to think that there are some suckers out there that have spent $1000 on nintendo products over the last three years (switch console, games that never go on sale) when they could've turned that $1000 into an actual console and 30+ games instead of basically a handheld system and 10 games.

 

You sound angry and unhappy. Here’s a solution. 
 

Dont fucking buy it.

Yes, it's essentially the base game with the DLC either included on disc or there is a download code for the bundle.

Whoo-boy, you can tell it's that Black Friday time of year in here. Everyone save some salt and pointless arguments for Thanksgiving; don't waste it all in here.

I'm really hoping there is some kind of sale for Switch Fire Emblem or the new Zelda. Even if it's just $10-$15 each title. Also, is there ever going to be a complete edition for Red Dead 2?

Amazon currently has Link’s Awakening for $49 plus 5% CB if you use discover card.

Walmart always has their switch games for $50 in store if that's enough of a discount for you.

I’ve been tempted to get a PSVR for a while now, and the Target 5 game bundle looks like the best deal to me - is it the new one or the old one? And does anyone know if it comes with controllers?

You're more than welcome to start one yourself.

I looked through all the ads out so far and the 4K deals look worse for Disney movies this year. Target’s B2G1 sale right now looks better than what has been seen from some places such as Best Buy with their $21.99 per 4K for Disney and Marvel. I expect some to be a little less but unfortunately doubt it. I bought nine 4K movies from Target last night. If they wind up cheaper, it won’t be by much from the looks of it since the blu-rays are listed at $16.99.

I do plan on buying all three of The Dark Knight 4Ks from Best Buy on Black Friday as they will be a lot cheaper.

I bought a bundle last year. It did not come with the PS Move controllers.

I just wanted to stop by and say thanks to ThatOneGuyWho, CheapyD and all you other hardcore cheapasses that make this site what it is for Black Friday. I never miss this action, it warms my heart.

The DLC content for Marvel's Spider-man GOTY game is just a download code voucher, sadly.  However, 15 bucks is still a sweet deal.

I'm definitely snagging a copy. I bought it used near launch for $35, and quickly resold it for $45 after I unlocked the Platinum trophy. I can't wait to get back into it and check out the new costumes and DLC.

Between work and moving, I haven't really kept an eye on games much this year. I'm more interested in the peripherals--I'm hoping the G502 Lightspeed and G Pro Wireless get good discounts. I was hoping the new Nano IPS monitor from LG would go on sale, but at this point, I'd be happy if it just comes back in stock!

 

Fire Emblem on Switch would probably be of most interest to me, but given my endless playing of Overwatch this year, it'll be hard to find time for newer stuff. I can't wait to move and take time off work to play the mess out of games like a kid. It's been so long since I bothered to pick up any new games that I feel like I've missed out on quite a bit, but I don't even know what.

I'm surprised Nintendo's ring fit adventure isn't heavily discounted everywhere

The Japanese do love their cock rings....

The people who only go into stores during the holidays to buy stuff like this aren't even going to be aware of the difference...

Agreed, but it's the principle. They are in fact the worst console to buy on a budget this year, and I hope it shows in their earnings. From console to accessories to games, they are typically the worst priced in all three categories with less 3rd party support. If I were still working retail, I'd direct every mom and dad asking towards a PS4 or X1 if I could. Switch is only for the kid who has everything at this point.

Eh, I think I'll keep my tin foil in the oven. ;) A sale is a sale and they're not going to care about bots; no, they simply fucked up the start time is all. :p

The prices for Target's BF preview were actually live at 3AM, exactly when they were supposed to be. I don't know about the advertisement for it on the main page, but I was able to check out with the discounted price and got my confirmation e-mail at 3:02, well before the 3:20 that other guy's saying.

Occasionally they will get a price drop.  But Nintendo (home television) consoles never go on sale.  This is not news.  Welcome to last century.

This is my first year being all digital so question for those with experience...

 

I know most of this stuff is physical exclusively, but is there any chance of digital copies being marked down to the same prices on BF?

I can only speak for XBL, but while there's a much larger selection of discounts, they're typically not quite as low as the lowest physical.  I predict, for example, with Borderlands 3 being $28 at BB, it'll be perhaps $35-40 on XBL.

 

EDIT:  Link to the prices for XBL's sale last year: https://www.trueachi...riday-sale-2018

 

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider was a new release, discounted to $27 at GameStop but $30 on XBL.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey went to $27 also at GameStop, still $40.19 online.
