You may have missed this, but basically every single game that matters is launching this month. And we’ve given out so many glowing reviews, we don’t blame you for wanting to jump in a midnight launch line immediately. But wait! You’re obviously forgetting the magical 24-hour period known as Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when everything is on sale and people are trampled for a $99 HD TV. Today Best Buy’s Black Friday ad has leaked weeks ahead of time and includes some crazy deals that might cause you to delay some purchases.
As posted on a Black Friday deals site Best Buy has some crazy sales for the official start of the holiday shopping season. Chief among the game deals are major recent releases going for $30, including Arkham City, Rage, Battlefield 3, and Uncharted 3. What’s an even bigger shocker is that games that come out next week are on the sales list, including Need for Speed The Run and Assassin’s Creed Revelations going for $30 and $35 respectively. So maybe remember that when you’re about to pay $60 next week for those titles. We also spotted special 3DS bundles that pack in Super Mario 3D Land and Ocarina 3D for just $10 over the retail price of the handheld by itself.
Now this story isn’t meant to be an ad for Best Buy, as these types of deals will probably pop up in all the usual spots like Wal-Mart, Toys ‘R Us and Target too. And if you’d rather not line up at 3 AM after Thanksgiving, you should find similar deals on Amazon too, as history has shown the online retail usually does its best to match those low prices. We’ll keep you posted on any other crazy as they pop up.
