Here I was thinking that I wouldn't have to worry about Black Friday coverage for a couple of weeks. Walmart blows that all up by announcing a pre-Black Friday sale, set for this Saturday at 11 a.m.
Xbox 360 Kinect bundles have been "rolled back" for this early start on Black Friday. The 250GB with Kinect is $399 and includes a $50 gift card. The 4GB is $299 and also comes with the $50 gift card. If you need a new gaming TV the LG 47” Class LED TV is on sale for $698.
As for the real Black Friday, Walmart reveals that they will give those that sign up at their Facebook page an early preview of sale items.
Amazon also has a bunch of good stuff on sale. L.A. Noire is 50 percent off, Homefront is only $19.99, and a bunch of other games have been discounted. On the digital side, the 5 Pack Need for Speed Bundle is $31.98, or 60 percent off. It contains: Shift and Shift 2, NFS: Undercover, Hot Pursuit and ProStreet. Not bad! Some digital pre-orders are also 15 percent off.
Finally, Fry's has an in-store deal where you can get a PS3 Slim (320GB), Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3 in a bundle, all for $299. That deal expires today, so go now.
Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
