damn, that's right, Black Friday is coming.... Amazon is usually the crown jewel on these, right? (Besides Steam)

Edited by jakob187

@TurboMan: The biggest problem with their Black Friday deals is they usually do the Lightning Deals, so you can't usually find out what they are until the day of. Personally, I've always found that AAFES, Hasting's, and Best Buy are the three kings when it comes to video games. However, I am curious what Gamestop will do this year.

Personally, I just want to try and grab Assassin's Creed Revelations and Skyrim for under $100 together. If I can get my military buddy to go to AAFES for me, I can actually accomplish that.

Going out on black friday is a thing of the past, stay inside and shop online.

Edited by jakob187

@Unknown_Pleasures: Personally, I enjoy going to the store for Black Friday. My friends and I like going out and just acting the fool, but it's also because we are all usually awake until 8:00am anyways on a regular basis, so it's something for us to actually go out and do in this boring ass town. Also, I don't like waiting to play my games.

@jakob187: I did it last year and it was a nightmare so I'll stay inside, at least until the afternoon....most of the time they will still have copies as long of the deal wasn't insanely good.....I have a military ID but AAFES doesn't have anything that sparks my interest (Rage for $30 is a pretty good deal, but I don't think I'll bite on it).

40 on Steam at the moment.

@Unknown_Pleasures: Understandable. Agree to disagree, I guess.

Also, just a general comment: the fact that this Black Friday deal makes WoW a $50 initial investment (as the Battle Chest comes with some free time on the game) is fucking insane, especially if someone would be interested in Mists of Pandaria when it releases.

The Wii is dying Josh. You know that. You make a deal with the devil and you take the good with the bad.

@Claude: Ever since my Wii died after the second year, I just kind of gave up on it. I hear Skyward Sword is supposed to be pretty goddamn beasty, but beyond that, it's all Wii U, right?

We don't have black friday at all =/ Though our thanksgiving is also on another day, but there's no shopping day following it.
 
We do have Boxing Day stuff though.

@Unknown_Pleasures: Is your aafes relatively well stocked when it comes to electronics? Mine, seems to be ridiculously small and rarely has good deals. They seem to keep the full price of games, regardless of age unless no one is buying them. Not to mention our electronic zone is basically an area that sells phones and dvds.

OOOOOOOOOO shit steam sales! Fuck, i don't know if im gonna buy skyrim now. . . .

Posted by TooWalrus

...they really shouldn't be selling that battle chest anymore. What's gonna happen when some unsuspecting noob reads about mana management on his hunter and finds himself totally confused?

Posted by Guided_By_Tigers

@Rawrnosaurous: Yeah my AAFES has a decent stock, not nearly as good as places like Best Buy but still decent.....yeah they do have a problem with not lowering prices, but they eventually get there and they can occasionally have really good deals....I remember my AAFES had a video game blowout sale like 5 years ago and I got a ton of Xbox games for dirt cheap.

Posted by Still_I_Cry

I have any games I want pre-ordered.

I do not wish to be crushed by savage shoppers.

Posted by jakob187

Supposedly, Wal-Mart is releasing their ad sometime tonight. I'll be keeping an eye on that, especially given the pre-BF sales they've been having. They have a Westinghouse 42" 1080p LED for $340 the other day, which I wish I had known about at that time. Not the GREATEST, but still good and I don't have an HDTV still. lol

Wal-Mart is saying it'll be a "sneak peek" at the ads, but from what I've read, it's gonna be the full listing. Their gaming stuff usually isn't incredible, but they've talked for the past few months about wanting to be super competitive this year for BF. I'll update once info is available.

Before my friend and I got in line for a 40" TV I was going to purchase we stopped by Wal-Mart to see the videogame deals. I was shoved, bumped into and stepped on. I'm not going back there without a taser.

Posted by jakob187

OH GODDAMN!!!

Wal-Mart posted their ad, and the video game section is fucking RIDICULOUS!!!

Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, and Forza 4 for $28 a pop?!

Moreover, they have two 4GB Xbox 360 bundles...one with a KINECT...for $199. That shit is goddamn INSANE!

Posted by jakob187

Alright. Target and Best Buy have released their ads, and it looks like I'm going to be in line at Best Buy this year. Assassin's Creed, Deus Ex, and Rage all on sale...all at midnight. Also, for anyone looking to start up on Skylanders, they've got the Mega Pack on sale. Damn good deal.

Target's is...alright. They've got better sales in all the other departments, though.

Posted by Equal_Opportunity_Destroyer497

Damn there are some great deals at Best Buy & Wal-Mart this year. I really hope that a deal on Skyrim pops up at some point but it looks I shoudn't hold my breath. There aren't any more major video game retailers left to announce anything, right?

Posted by hwy_61

It's great that you started this thread, but all these deals and more can be found at cheapassgamer.com. Jus sayin. The Walmart deal on Forza is nice. I will be going to my 24 hour one to pick it up.

Edited by Guided_By_Tigers

I saw the Wal-Mart ad a couple days a go and it has some pretty good deals, Wal-Mart and Best Buy are obvious competitors here.....I might pick up Homefront and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions for $15 each.

EDIT: Also, Gamestop just released there ad, its underwhelming though compared to Best Buy and Wal-Mart. (Sonic Generations for $30 is the only deal that sparks my interest)

(...can someone explain to me what's so "black" about Black Friday?)

Black Friday as a term has been used in multiple contexts, going back to the nineteenth century, where it was associated with a financial crisis in 1869 in the United States. The earliest known reference to "Black Friday" to refer to the day after Thanksgiving was made in a 1966 publication on the day's significance in Philadelphia:

JANUARY 1966 -- "Black Friday" is the name which the Philadelphia Police Department has given to the Friday following Thanksgiving Day. It is not a term of endearment to them. "Black Friday" officially opens the Christmas shopping season in center city, and it usually brings massive traffic jams and over-crowded sidewalks as the downtown stores are mobbed from opening to closing.

The term Black Friday began to get wider exposure around 1975, as shown by two newspaper articles from November 29, 1975, both datelined Philadelphia. The first reference is in an article entitled "Army vs. Navy: A Dimming Splendor," in The New York Times:

Philadelphia police and bus drivers call it "Black Friday" - that day each year between Thanksgiving Day and the Army–Navy Game. It is the busiest shopping and traffic day of the year in the Bicentennial City as the Christmas list is checked off and the Eastern college football season nears conclusion.

The derivation is also clear in an Associated Press article entitled "Folks on Buying Spree Despite Down Economy," which ran in the Titusville Herald on the same day:

Store aisles were jammed. Escalators were nonstop people. It was the first day of the Christmas shopping season and despite the economy, folks here went on a buying spree. ... "That's why the bus drivers and cab drivers call today 'Black Friday,'" a sales manager at Gimbels said as she watched a traffic cop trying to control a crowd of jaywalkers. "They think in terms of headaches it gives them."

The term's spread was gradual, however, and in 1985 the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that retailers in Cincinnati and Los Angeles were still unaware of the term."

That makes a lot of sense when you think about Black Friday lol! :P

It's a dark day when normal people turn into cannibalistic maniacs...like zombies! They trample their fellow man/woman/child in hopes of getting a better deal than their fellow shopper! It's a dark day every year for humanity, and every year a little bit of humanity dies on the inside.

@elsuperdonut: I would actually suggest hitting up Toys R Us for Forza 4, as they are doing a B1G1 for $5 deal on Battlefield 3, Gears 3, Forza 4, and quite a few other games.

Also, I'm aware that this can be found on Cheap Ass Gamer. I do this blog every year, however. Not everyone goes to BF ad sites or CAG, so this is somewhere that they can find ONLY the gaming deals on their favorite forums.

Well, I guess I'll be waiting in line at a Best Buy after Thanksgiving dinner.

That's why I prefaced by saying its great that you've started a thread. I was just letting others know about CAG, as it's a very useful resource for getting games on the cheap. The rest of the ToysRUs list doesn't really interest me. Walmart has a better deal on Forza.

Certain deals are crazy like Gears 3, Assassin's Creed, and Forza 4 but others seem ridiculous like fucking Blops for 30 bones. What?

Although 15 bucks for Ratchet and Clack: A Crack in Time is cutting it close to my no question buy limit. Although the problem is I don't have a formula for console game prices quite like I do for PC gaming. I guess this black friday is the perfect time to make one. Granted we haven't seen the granddaddy Amazon and won't until the black day itself.

@elsuperdonut: K-Mart just released theirs. They've got a pretty good list of stuff outside of the usual EA/MS stuff we've seen going on sale.

I still think Best Buy has one of the strongest game selection lists this year...but that's because they have AC on that list while no one else does besides AAFES.
