Remember when "Black Friday" happened on a Friday? Those were the good old days. Not content to simply allow a sales extravaganza to bleed into Thanksgiving like brick-and-mortar retailers have done in recent years, Amazon is starting their big holiday promotion this coming Sunday.
A press release issued today has teased some of the bigger offers which will cycle through the week-long event, where deals will be offered in limited quantities for a limited time. A PS3 bundle with The Last of Us and Batman Arkham Origins for $199 has been teased, while the Xbox 360 will have a package with Halo 4 and Tomb Raider for $189.99.
Games known to be getting discounted include Call of Duty: Ghosts ($39.96), Grand Theft Auto V, Batman Arkham Origins ($34 each), FIFA 14, Madden 25, Battlefield 4, and NCAA Football 14 ($25 each). Plus, selected titles in the Amazon Appstore will be discounted as much as 90% during the week.
