As always, we have several dedicated threads for the hotter items each Black Friday. Please try to keep all discussion related to these items in their official threads. Other threads posted will likely be merged into this main thread.

Just Dance is always a must for DD15 & DD9 every Christmas.

Don’t know how accurate this article is with its predictions, but I ran across it last week.

Depending on his age there area good bit of selections. There will be a host of $20 games on BF. Drop hints to see what his friends are playing so they can play together or online ( depending on his age ) against or with one another.

Depending upon the model, look for deals in the $225-250 range. Expect to pay more for the 1 TB model if he needs the extra storage for games. I will be surprised if they come out swinging with last years 500GB for $199, but it could happen, especially with as many that just sat there over the holiday weekend unsold.

Everywhere will have the PS4 for $200 this year. Hoping that Nintendo will be smart enough to include a free game in a bundle or store offer one for the holidays or I’m not buying it this year.

We have seen Nintendo really miss out on filling customer demand and it will be a wait and see if they step up to the plate this year. They seem to be satisfied with a safer approach and will not gamble when it comes to new or retro gaming systems.

My husband wanted a Super Nintendo, and put it on his Christmas list growing up for like 10 years or something (I hear the same story at Thanksgiving every year...). Anyway, I'm looking for the SNES Classic, and I can't find it anywhere except for places that want at least double what the price actually is. Does anyone think they will release more by BF?

I think that Walmart had it also at that price, but my target check out was quicker.

My DD and I mentioned to my DH how this was coming out (this was when it made its first debut) and he went and stood in line at midnight to get it.  I have to say that we all still enjoy it and it was worth the headache to get.  I had heard they are coming out with more at Christmas and that is why it hasnt been available lately, Make sure you are checking at Game Stop.  They also had the cordless controllers that we well worth the price !

DS22 gets the new Call of Duty game for Christmas every year.  This year's new game, I guess, is going back to old school weapons and such, and he's really excited about it.  This week, he started playing the older (I'm talking the first couple) games to get geared up for the new one coming out.  I told him that was his version of listening to Christmas music early. :) 

 

Anyway, I've almost always been able to find a good deal on the game around BF. I'm sure hoping that stays true this year.

Anyone think there will be deals on the Xbox One X?

 

I remember when the PS3 was released there were good deals on those. I specifically remember the Walmart "secret sales" that were so secret that even the store associates and management did not know about them.

 

I do not, however, remember any good deals on the Xbox one when it came out. Does anyone think there will be any good offerings for BF, or will be getting one be the challenge?

The best Black Friday deal for the Xbox One, a few years ago, was through Microsoft.com itself.  I don't know how long it had been out at that point, but if I remember correctly the deal was the same price other stores had it but they included a $60 Microsoft gift card and like 3 or 4 other games.

I doubt you will see discounts on the One X as it will be brand new at that point.

I don't really think so as it's still selling really well. Especially with the new Mario coming out today. There may be some package deals but I don't foresee anything huge. I'm probably going to get it from Target so I get the 5% off for using the Red Card and then I will just return it if I'm wrong and an awesome deal comes out for BF. :)

Thanks! I forgot about using my Red Card at Target to get the extra 5% off.  I think I'll do that as well!

Decent deal on a Switch console with Super Mario Odyssey and a bunch of Mario merch on the front page:

I think ThinkGeek forgot to turn on the "no coupons allowed" switch for this bundle, so the 20% off code works.

It worked on the Zelda bundle too.

I was excited to take care of all 3 video games I need with Target's B2G1 sale. But, it wasn't meant to be. COD WWII preorders show available for the Xbox One, but when I put it in my cart it says it's out of stock :(.  Guess I'll wait and see what kind of deals I end up with in the BF sales.  I need Call of Duty WWII for XB1, Madden18 for XB1, and Injustice 2 for PS4.

Yeah, seems there's always a pre order on my list as well that I can't get.
I was excited my son gave me a list of three games this morning... All are listed on the site, and I thought I'd actually be able to do the sale... But one is a 7 month old game and is no longer available. Boo. Maybe somebody will think of another. Between two sons and a nice and nephew, there's a good chance so we'll see.
