GameStop Black Friday ad leaks

Battlefield 4 discounted to $30 on Friday only, while Call of Duty: Ghosts going for $50; Zelda 3DS XL bundle revealed for US.

by

GameStop's Black Friday advertisement has leaked, giving gamers a look at some of the deals they can score at the retailer during the day-after-Thanksgiving shopping bonanza next month.

According to the advertisement obtained by GottaDeal.com, which GameStop has not verified is accurate, Battlefield 4 will be available for $30, while Call of Duty: Ghosts will go for $50. Both deals are valid Friday only.

Other deals include Just Dance 2014 for $20, a Wii system for $50, and a buy-one-get-one-free deal on Disney Infinity toy sets.

The leaked ad also indicates that GameStop will offer a pair of HD console deals. A 250GB Xbox 360 bundle including Tomb Raider and Halo 4 will be available for $200, while a 250GB PlayStation 3 with copies of Batman: Arkham Origins and The Last of Us will also go for $200.

Other deals include Assassin's Creed III ($15), Halo 4: Game of the Year Edition ($30), Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition ($15), and BioShock: Infinite ($20), among others.

Watch Dogs and DriveClub are listed in the GameStop ad, though both titles are no longer scheduled for release in 2013 after being delayed this week.

The GameStop ad also shows the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL bundle, which was previously only announced for Europe. It is listed at $220.

A GameStop representative was not immediately available to comment on the leaked ad. The retailer traditionally offers various markdowns on Black Friday.

GameStop is hiring more than 17,000 seasonal employees for the holiday.

Last year deals were horrible.

If you look at the ad, it specifically says "Also on PS3, PC" which would indicate that this promo for Battlefield 4 only applies on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Yeah, I'm wondering if this is in-store only or will these deals be on their website as well?

Lol, COD, such a big deal at 50 dollars. The most expensive franchise even 2 years after release.

Looks like I'll be waiting on BF4. Wonder if this in-store only.

Wouldn't it be the ultimate irony if after the sale Activision inked an exclusivity deal with the US Military because the military was afraid of their brand being devalued? #NFL2K5Karma

That Battlefield 4 deal sounds pretty sweet. Don't know if I'll be able to swing that 3DS bundle... If it is a custom, collectible 3DS I may be able to move somethings around.

Capitalism at it's best.  I'm glad there is no black friday in my country.

When can I reserve that Zelda 3DS? I'm canceling my PS4 for that thing.

Say what you want about gaming being an expensive hobby or 'I went to college, not my fault you can't afford it' bullshit, this is just sweet.

Hmmm, suddenly I am thinking about Black friday.

Maybe I could find a Wii U for a half-way decent price.

300 is still too much for a glorified HD Gamecube.

@SuperDutchy Worst case scenario, if you want it on next gen, you just pay the 10$ to upgrade, not that bad either.

@fredyellowone if it wasnt for capitalism you probably wouldnt even have a Gamespot website to complain on.....just sayin'.

Capitalism is the fuel that powers the engine of the global economy. So why is this a bad thing. The last time I looked the worlds economy needed all the help it can get.

@fredyellowone You are correct, this is capitalism at its best. Companies make money by selling large volumes at discount prices while consumers get great deals on things they want. Sucks, right?

@VenkmanPHD I like the Wii-U more than I do the other two consoles. But I'm a PC gamer, and don't see much reason in buying an overpriced console, that will be outdated in 2 years. Seriously, 4k monitors will be the standard for PC gaming in a couple years. Consoles will still be less than 1080p.

I foresee a PS5 and Xbox Two within 5 years.

@SlyMC182 @fredyellowone I should have told "savage capitalism"  and yes, it's bad.  I prefer to pay my stuff a little more, and make sure a nearby family store get my money, than running around like a chicken, hurting people in my crazy run to get the last wathever piece of technology at some Walmart store.


fredyellowone

@StHapns247 @fredyellowone Yes, it do sucks that people get those discounts ONE day each year, and to make sure they get them, they have to camp outside stores for a day, and when it's finally open, run like a bunch of animals into the store.

lol that's funny, I thought you were on a gaming website that overwhelmingly supports gaming systems (Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, PC) all undoubtedly made in China by large corporations and sold by capitalist retailers...

@fredyellowone @SlyMC182

I agree that is a fair point. There is nothing wrong with helping out a local store. But people running around like idiots and pushing and shoving each other like you sometimes see on the news is not the fault of capitalism per se. It is the result of too many people all in the same place at the same time that all want the same things. And that is the fault of poor planning and a lack of proper security in some stores or just simply not enough products in stock. So even if you prefer to buy from a small mom and pops store you are still supporting the global economy but on a smaller scale. And no that is never a bad thing.

Most businesses take part in offering sales during Black Friday, but deals like these are hardly one day each year. Gamestop always has a summer sale, for example.

Hell, right after Black Friday we have "Cyber Monday" which, contrary to it's name, tends to last all week.

@fredyellowone @StHapns247 I feel like your understanding of what is going to go down is a little skewed. I will sit where I am sitting now, click "Add to Cart" then "Check Out" and have the item(s) be hand delivered to my doorstep, most likely for free.

Of course, later on in the day I will go to a local store and trample a bunch of people, but just because it will be a Friday and that's what I do every Friday.
