Can you feel it in the air? It's electric. It's like the buzz inside an arena seconds before your favorite band takes the stage. It makes my heart aflutter and almost brings a tear to my eye.
That's right, it's just about time for overwhelming consumerism to kick in, as the masses flood the malls for Black Friday and the holiday shopping season. Every year, Black Friday ads leak early, and it looks like GameStop's was one of the first this year.
The flier, which hasn't been verified by GameStop, features Xbox 360 and PS3 bundles as its banner items. The 250GB Xbox 360 package comes with copies of Halo 4 and Tomb Raider, while the 250GB PS3 bundle includes The Last of Us and Batman: Arkham Origins.
Several games are also on sale, two of the more notable ones being Battlefield 4 for $30 and Call of Duty: Ghosts for $50 -- both titles on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Likewise, BioShock Infinite will be available for $20, Assassin's Creed III for $15, and Halo 4: Game of the Year Edition for $30.
Of course, this only skims the surface, as the 12-page ad offers plenty more in the way of savings. Just remember to budget wisely; you still need to pick up a tie and socks for your dad.
