Best Buy has a sneak peek of Black Friday video game deals

By 11.07.12

You know this year’s post-Thanksgiving tradition is serious business when Best Buy starts advertising this many weeks in advance.


Now that the Presidential election is done and over with (thank God), we can get back on track and figuring out what games we want to treat ourselves this holiday season. And the day that many are waiting to make their purchases is the one immediately following Thanksgiving: Black Friday.

Best Buy does great business that day generally speaking, but they want to make extra sure this time around, I’m guessing. Hence the preview that they just posted. Here’s everything laid out, for your convenience:


The offerings are not bad. Nothing mind blowing, but nothing to sneeze at either…

– PS3 Super Slim (guess that’s what they’re calling the latest model) with a 250GB hard drive, plus the Infamous Collection and Uncharted Dual Pack – $199.99
– Xbox 369 with 250GB hard drive, plus with Forza 4 and Skyrim as a download – $199.99
– Nintendo 3DS (the regular model, in red, and not the 3DS XL) with Super Mario Land 3D pre-installed – $149.99
– PlayStation Vita with a 4GB memory card, plus Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified – $199.99
