Discountoid: We'll call this the "pre-game show"

Just because the biggest shopping day of the year is right around the corner, doesn't mean that the retailers aren't fighting for your dollars during the rest of the week.

Target, in particular, has come out swinging. Several recent releases for PS2 and DS are getting some very nice discounts. In addition, there are several Gift Card opportunities on the table for Left 4 Dead and Rock Band 2.

Best Buy has made some permanent price drops. Too Human and Battlefield: Bad Company are now ten dollars less. And they're still working on clearing out their inventory of Rock Band bundles. The PS3 version of the first game in the series will save you $20 bucks this week.

All of the deals this week end on Wednesday, with Black Friday deals going into effect. We'll be rounding up all of those for you later in the week. For now, check out everything this week has to offer.
