Share your Black Friday finds here!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Nov 27, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

I love my routine on Thanksgiving: get the paper, then plan my Black Friday attack while watching football all the way until Turkey Time. And then: a huge pile of dishes, but that’s kind of irrelevant for this conversation.

Back to the Black Friday deals – there are a lot to be found this year on PlayStation games and hardware, as well as some awesome limited-time bundles which mark a great time to enter next-gen gaming for those who haven’t already.

So since all of us here at PlayStation.Blog are home with their families – we’re going to leave this post up as a PlayStation Holiday Deal “discussion board” through Monday, when we resume our normal programming. So if you find a great deal, even at a smaller, non-national chain, please share it with your fellow readers in the comments area below.

Here are a few I found this morning to get it started:

bestbuy

Best Buy: Sony PLAYSTATION 3 80GB Package w/Ratchet and Clank Future Game + Casino Royale Blu-ray – $399.99

kmart

Kmart: $25 off your next gaming purchase when you buy any PS3 system.

radioshack

Radio Shack: DualShock PS3 Wireless Controller – $29.99

target

Target: Free $20 Gift Card w/ Purchase of PSP

walmart

Walmart: Blu-ray movies including Iron Man and Kung Fu Panda for $15.

Now it’s time for you to share your own (and please keep it on topic!).
Good luck waking up early to score these deals, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Doesn’t seem like many good deals to me. Perhaps one of the Blu-Ray movies.

A Backwards compatible PS3 would be a great deal. Why did you discontinued the Premium PS3s? I know many people that are buying other consoles because of the lack of Backwards Compatibility :(

Blu-ray of The Untouchables for 9 bucks. Terminator 2 and The Shining Blu-rays for 12 bucks each, all three deals at Circuit City. At Target, the Dead Space for 30 dollars deal is appetizing.

The best deal possible was the one over at amazon, but you had to be randomly chosen to be able to even attempt to buy it. PS3+Bluetooth remote+LBP+Pirates of the Caribbean (BluRay) for $200 is unbeatable.

Jeff, man, what are you doing working on a holiday?!!? Hope the family gives you a proper tongue lashing!

On topic wise, I’m not seeing much in the way of deals up North (Canada!). If anything, I’ve been seeing retailers randomly raising prices on different games by between $5 & $10 (e.g. Zellers is selling NHL 09 for $69.99 when everyone else is charging $10 less). I presume it’s the weakening loonie. Nice of retailers to be up front about the change.
