Millions of people will be up early this Friday as they brave the crowds and cold for some of the greatest deals of the year, as part of Black Friday sales. But with all the deals and sales, where should one go in the pursuit of the best video games and accessories?
Walmart (NYSE:WMT) is leading the pack with its "all-round deals for value," which include its pre-black Friday sales. The mammoth retailer will be offering discounted games like “Call of Duty: Ghosts” and the popular “Battlefield 4.” On Black Friday the stores will be running great deals for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 fans, but prepared for lots of people, as the accessories and consoles will not last long.
Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) also is offering pre-Black Friday sales as well as deals on the day itself. The deals will run in three waves -- at 6 p.m. on Thursday, midnight and 10 a.m. Friday. IBTimes reporter Charles Poladian thinks the best deal will be the Xbox 360 250 GB bundle with four games for $189.99, a saving of over $100.
GameStop (NYSE:GME) will also showcase the popular PlayStation 3 and Xbox bundles but will have limited stock for its Black Friday sales. If you're after games, this may be the place for you to go, with the best deal being that some of their games are up to 50 percent off with 2-for-1 deals going as well.
Meijer will have the popular PlayStation 4 in stock as well as bundles for the PlayStation 3 consoles. Games will be discounted, but as with all the outlets they will move fast so the best bet is to get there early and prepare to line up.
Online deals will be available through Amazon in addition to the daily deals. Target as well has plenty of bargains for the gamers who are looking for discounts on bundle packages.
While Black Friday sales are chaotic at best, there are plenty of great deals for game lovers who are prepared to brave the crowds and the cold. Fans who want to get their hands on the popular consoles, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 1, may want to get their extra early as the consoles are expected to fly off the shelves.
