We want to help you not suffer as much on Black Friday so we put together this nifty gaming guide. We’ve spent hours looking at store ads and rumor blogs to put this guide together, just for you! You can thank us by sending something you find to us (Kelly wants the new My Little Pony game). Games like Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City & Gears of War 3 are getting slashed in half to $30. Usually retailers don’t do this but it’s a move to get more people in the door to shop. “I would expect retail to be more aggressive this holiday, as the market is seemingly saturated with top releases, and consumer discretionary is still under pressure,” said National Alliance Capital Markets analyst Mike Hickey. What other gaming deals can we expect?

Everyone is doing a $200 Xbox 360 or PS3 bundle as well as discounting lots of games. The other places having deals are GameStop, Kmart, Target, Walmart & Toy-R-Us. All the other retailers are discounting games but just not as cheap as Best Buy so try and hit them up first before other places. Don’t expect Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to be discounted anywhere though.
Amazon is has over 100 discounted games for Black Friday and Cyber Monday most of them 25% – 30% off. Take a look at them here.
