Markets are down and a recession is looming, impacting both sales and customer confidence.

I wouldn't be surprised if the retail outlets are playing a game of chicken regarding pricing, while also more uncertain on actual purchasing power of your average customer.

News lately states gaming revenues are down YOY overall, while Americans are still buying, but almost entirely on credit.

Will that bubble burst before or after Christmas?

The problem with this theory is ads have to be ready weeks in advance to be printed and shipped for distribution, and they usually leak at the print stage (if not before). Online? Absolutely. Pretty hard to play chicken when your ad is already in hard copy, though.

Soul Hackers 2 for 30 isn't that bad considering it just came out. But it's also a Sega game so it'll probably be 15 bux by the end of the year anyway.

 

I'm really just hoping for a Mario Rabbids 2 deal, mostly.

FYI - if you were looking for a deal on Tiny Tina's Wonderlands: Next Level Edition for PS5 or XSX, it’s live for $20 now on Walmart, which beats Target’s listing of $35 on BF.

But do retailers even print ads in papers anymore? I feel like weekly ads are gone now. I certainly don't see any of them anymore from the usual suspects in our papers anymore.

The leak for GameStop's is photos of a print ad. But yeah I think some of the major retailers stopped doing print a few years ago.

I did too. That Walmart deal was great; figured that was as low as it was going to be for Black Friday. Oh well...

Looks like The Quarry in the Ad posting is for the "Xbox One" version not the "Xbox Series X" version (The bar in the upper left is white for the X1X version and gray for the XSX version).

It’s been going in and out of stock for PS5 (still in stock for XSX), so try looking again in a day or so.

Given how retailers have handled BF as a month long promo period since Covid, and have also basically trained their consumers to not bother with looking for their ads in Sunday papers, it would seem strange to waste money and bother with print ads.

Btw, I do think this is why we're seeing far fewer leaks this year for BF.

Well, we all know GS runs its company @$$ backwards so ...

Still in stock for XSX (if you also have that console). I think Digital Foundry reviewed it slightly higher than the PS5 version, so you won't be losing anything by selecting for that console.

Digimon Survive for $17 at Gamestop is the best BF deal so far this year.  A lot of the other stuff is overpriced (some way overpriced).

Anyone see any deals on Game Pass Ultimate? 

Target and Best Buy usually have them on sale every year.

Elden Ring is misspelled in the OP as Elder Ring

 

I only mention this because if someone does a search, they won't find it with the way it's spelled now.

That's the big thing I'm looking for out of the upcoming sales, even if it's just a minor sale so that I can toss a cheap year onto the account.

Tempted to buy Soul Hackers 2 and Digimon Survive at Gamestop but I'm really holding out hope that Best Buy will get my money again this year. 

 

Surprised I haven't seen any deals on 3 month Game Pass Ultimate cards yet.

Do we know anything about Walmart's later BF stuff? I was in Walmart today and saw Fire Emblem Three Hopes for Switch with a green circle sticker like the BF games had last year.

So Walmart's sale begins Monday online at 12pm EST for Walmart members and 7 hours later for everyone else...then Friday at 6am in stores. I bring this up because I have Walmart+ and the ad for this week's "sales" wasn't viewable until the Sunday afternoon before. That's when I'd expect their Black Friday ad if history is any indication.
