Got mine from Gamestop.  I rushed out to preorder one when I heard about that a few weeks back.  I was sort of tempted to check the scene last night to see if people were really camping out for one of them but I worked late last night and didn't want to be bothered.  

 

I think they were there as the Gamestop employee said the phone was ringing just about non-stop all day with people asking if they had any left.  They got only 24 in and it was a huge improvement over the NES qualities that they got in for the entire year. O_O;  I told him that he could have had 224 in today and they all would have sold today.  LOL  

 

Anyway, I'm glad that's over.  I was really stressing over this as I was afraid they would sell mine to someone and I couldn't get over there until 2.  I saw the Hori controller and I was tempted.  May get one late if I'm in the mood.  I'd be more tempted if it looked more like the SNES controller.  


In Topic: Black Friday 2017 - what are you hoping to buy

21 September 2017 - 06:00 AM

Actually I shouldn't be buying anything as I've yet to play the games and DVDs I bought from last year's Black Friday.  I've dozens from prior BFs before that untouched.  

 

But I'll probably get whatever game I was sorta-maybe interested in this year.  Getting something like Persona 5 and Tales of Bers..er..whatever-ia for a super cheap price is probably a pipe dream.  Neir Automata and Injustice 2 is probably more realistic to get.  And Dark Souls 3 with DLC if there is a killer Steam sale.  Honestly I get games several years old for a few dollars from garage sales, so it's rare for me to get anything rather common at these sales that most people would want.  

 

More cartoon DVDs and TV on DVD for my collection.  Ash Vs. Evil Dead 2, Supergirl 2, American Horror Story (the latest one) and Scream Queens are all realistic ones to find at Walmart's BF sale.  All of which I'd watch pretty quickly rather than ignore.  And at least a dozen of the latest cartoon films.  Smurfs, Monster High, Legos, My Little Pony, various DC Universe cartoons which I refused to pay full retail in 2016 and 2017 but wanted.  If I'm super lucky, that Harley Quinn cartoon which came out a month or so ago.    

 

I would like a 128 GB memory card although I don't really need one.  It's to upgrade on a few dozen low GB ones I have.  I always buy an upgrade stick every few years even though I barely get to use them.  A 2-4 GB card is next to useless these days and I keep finding them in the trash when I dumpster dive Gamestop.  

 

Imagine if the SNES mini was out somewhere on BF?  That would be a true door buster.  I have one on preorder though.  

 

I cannot think of anything else I would want though.  Every year I go though this.  Should I buy all these cool things on sale but honestly I rarely want anything other than few games, dvds and perhaps a memory stick.  I've just about anything else I want and if something breaks down like a TV set I get one immediately rather than wait for BF.

YESSS!  I rushed over to Gamestop and their computers had crashed over this.  They said it happens every time something big happens, which is nearly every week it seems.  LOL  I was third in line for one and they had only 10 in stock. O_O;  The other buyers were store employees from other places in the strip plaza on their breaks and were a little worried about getting back as it was taking a long time to reboot the PCs.  LOL  I joked that I wanted to buy all 10. LOL  

 

Seriously they should have had at least 100 per store and that still wouldn't have been enough to get any though the day.  The calls was starting flooding in about this as well when I was checking out!  I was worried about them canceling, but the clerk girl said I got there very early and I should get one as this was the first time they had preorders for these.  It's the later waves of pre-orders that sometimes get canceled.  

 

Man, I'm so excited as I really wanted this really badly.  I'll be flipping quite a few tables if they cancel out as I paid in full on it.  GRR!  LOL!  So I'm hoping I do get one, as my next real option is camping out overnight somewhere to get one of the 2 that every store will probably be alloted.  LOL
