Black Friday Guide


I probably don’t need to tell you that Black Friday is almost here, or that you have a 50% chance* of being trampled to death if you brave the stores this Friday. If you are going to put your life in danger, you should at least have the best available information before you head out. This article contains the best of the best video game deals at each retailer. Our very favorite deals are displayed in bold.

Amazon

Amazon doesn’t have physical stores, so they don’t have to print Black Friday circular ads that will inevitably get leaked onto the internet. As a result, we don’t have any early intel for you just yet. Amazon has already been running pre-Black Friday specials, and will be running even more special specials starting the Monday before Thanksgiving.

If you take previous years into account, Amazon tends to pick all of the best deals from their rival retailers and match them. So if you see something you like below, there is a good chance that Amazon will be doing it as well.

 

Walmart

Early indicators are that Walmart has the best all around deals this year (if you ignore the fact that Amazon will likely match them all). My favorites are the series of ridiculously good brand new games that are 28 stinking dollars each. Walmart is opening their door for Black Friday on Thursday at 10pm which would seem to be a violation of the rules of the Gregorian calendar.
