Walk off your Turkey Dinner with Black Friday Shopping

Tim Bender's Avatar + Posted by Tim Bender on Nov 25, 2009 // Senior Vice President of Sales

I’m going to kick this off by introducing myself to all of you since I’m a relatively new addition to the PlayStation team. I’m Tim Bender the new head of sales at SCEA and I’m thrilled to be joining the company at such an exciting time and even more excited to be sharing with you some of the enticing deals we’ve got planned this Friday.

While recent sales momentum is proving that PS3 on its own is a deal many of you could not pass up, we’ve been working hard with our retail partners to offer incomparable incentives and value options this holiday. This Friday, across many of your favorite local retailers, you’ll be able to find the new 120GB PS3 system packaged with a selection of this season’s hottest games, and in some cases, the latest Blu-ray movie releases.

Keep in mind, the deals listed below are just the tip of the iceberg. Make sure to look in your Thursday papers to find other great deals from local favorites like Fry’s, Hastings Entertainment, Nebraska Furniture Mart, Game Crazy, hhgregg, BrandsMart, Meijer and Shopko.

Last year Jeff invited you to update the group on additional deals you found throughout the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We invite you to do the same again this year; we’ll be leaving this post front and center through Saturday. If you find something good – share with the group!

I hope we’ve packed some good deals in that’ll make it worth leaving the confines of your home to brave the elements—and parking lots.

Happy shopping and Turkey day,

Tim Bender

amazon already has some good deals… recently released Dragon Age Origins, which i recommend, is just $34.99 with free shipping..
and definitely good deals on Bluray movies… was almost tempted to get a 3 movie action pack for 21.99… of course, free shipping can only apply to orders of $25+..
Happy Thanksgiving and happy shopping to all of you who have the money for it… and good luck…

These are great deals, but I hope I can find the “Buy a Bravia, get a free PS3″ deal later when my insurance money comes in ….. my home was broken into last week and they stole about $15k worth of electronics, including a 60GB launch PS3 with an upgraded 250GB HD and my 50″ plasma, man I miss those the most :(


67

+ ikaros on November 26th, 2009 at 6:36 am said:

You guys are f—— mad! Many of these Titles still cost 60 bucks! If they were sold on their own they’d be 450+ sometimes!
Black Friday… Practically makes the PS3 Slim half price ._.

I’m planning on buying a second PS3!!!

Will there be any deals on sonystyle.ca? I know it’s not our thanksgiving but it is a time for giving haha…

If not can you let the Sony folks know up here that they need to make more deals like on sonystyle.com. I checked out the US site and they are giving a free controller with PS3 purchase!!! An now this deal…

All Im saying is that sonystyle.ca needs to be more like the US site with promos because they never have promos like this.

Thanks,
Kev

Ahh sweet…my PS3(4yr old) is freezing every half an hour…all’s I need is a hard drive(500GB for $80…nice) and im all set. I’ll probably get the Infamous LBP deal…I will miss my big bulky PS3…kinda sad

+ Reverend_M on November 26th, 2009 at 8:24 am said:

Well, I already have a PS3, and although I wouldn’t mind getting a second one for multiple reasons, I can’t risk death by being run over by a shopping cart as a normally sweet little old lady suddenly comes down with the vicious Black Friday Fever!

Are these coming to Canada?

Or are you two(SCEA + SCEC) still incapable of working together to achieve a common goal?

If anyone is looking for a PSP you definitely want to check out this deal.

Conns is selling a PSP-3000 Gran Turismo bundle for only $150.

@70

Keep an eye out for the MNBA Sony card for Canada. They just finished a promo in October that gave you $100 towards SONY purchase after your initial purchase of any size. Thus I bought a pop on my MC and next month have $100 towards a new PSPgo or PS3 or whatever.


81

+ I_am_rushin on November 26th, 2009 at 9:05 am said:

BTW. why no PSP deals? Just PS3 bundles.


82

+ jqtaxpayer on November 26th, 2009 at 9:22 am said:

Nice… lots of great PS3 bundle deals. Along with the price drop, this should bring a lot of newcomers into the fold.

Last year RadioShack had Dualshock3 controlers for just $29.99!!!

I think it’s gonna be the same this year!

How come there were no updates during Canadian Thanksgiving.

Typical Sony xenophobia.

+ HatmanTc on November 26th, 2009 at 10:45 am said:

the only problem i have with the GameStop promo is the way the advertise it. to the average consumer, it looks like they are getting 3 seperate games(i know they are in a way) by showing 3 different boxes instead of showing it as the two GOW titles on one disc. just seems a bit misleading to me.
