    Hello, I'm currently living in Japan, and both my American XBox360 and Wii have died in the past year. I have a sister that is a big Black Friday shopper and she said she'd be willing to help me get a new console (either PS3 or XBox360) over Thanksgiving weekend. I was wondering what the best deals on both consoles are that people have seen so far. Rather than ask only for that though, I thought it might be a good idea to go ahead and make it into a general thread for anyone to share great deals that they've seen. :) Help would be appreciated!

    Nice that this popped up. Anyone know if there's any good deals on Xbox Gold Live cards for Black Friday? Or heck, any other day? :)

    De nada!

    According to CheapAssGamer here's what I found..

    Walmart has 3-month cards for $11.96.

    Shopko has 3-month cards for $12.49.

    K-mart has 3-month cards for $12.99.

    Regular price is $24.99. You can buy a digital code from Amazon right now for $22.49, but you can buy cards for about $20 from most places like Target & Newegg.

    Thanks for the info. I decided to just get a 12 month card for 49 USD. It's not much more than 4x Walmart cards at the price above, plus I didn't have to pay tax on it for the digital code. Would be nice to catch one of those on sale. Finally got Xbox Live Gold just so I could play Spartan Ops in Halo 4.

    Wheres this at dj? I might have to pull the trigger on that. I finally decided to bite the bullet and get a bluray player, and they still look to be about 100 for a good one. I usually just stream all my content but friends at work have bluray players and want to share discs, so I figurre I should go grab one. At 199 the ps3 is a better value, plus I can play those exclusives I missed.

    That Live deal doesn't seem so hot. You can get those deals all year round, if you look for them online, and they'll just mail you the code, so shipping is irrelevant.

    I saw some sort of skylanders plus 4GB x360 bundle at Wal Mart for $149.

    What surprised me is that at 7PM there were still plenty left on the stack.
