GameStop plans to celebrate Black Friday 2015 for almost an entire week. The popular video game retailer will host a pre-Black Friday event beginning this Tuesday, November 24, with cool system bundles and price cuts on some of the best games. Then its Black Friday festivities kick off November 27, with stores opening at 5AM.
There’s a ton of stuff, and after going through the digital flyer we picked a handful of deals for you to take advantage of.
Pre-Black Friday Event (Begins November 24)
PlayStation 4 1 TB Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Bundle - $429.99
We love this bundle because it comes with a copy of the game (complete with the Nuk3town map), a massive 1 TB hard drive and Destiny: The Taken King free of charge; this includes the core Destiny experience, The Dark Below and House of Wolves. The gray and orange DualShock 4 looks bold, but color preference aside, you receive plenty of value for the cash.
50 Percent Off Until Dawn, Bloodborne and Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin
Sony’s horror fest, Until Dawn, is one of the surprise video games of the year, and you can’t go wrong with Bloodborne and Dark Souls 2 if you’re up for a challenge. By the way, the new Bloodborne DLC releases this week!
Side note, Until Dawn and Bloodborne are PS4 exclusive, but the deal applies to both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Dark Souls 2.
Transformers Devastation - $29.99
Activision’s entertaining beat-em-up pays homage to arguably the greatest era of Transformers, Generation 1, complete with faithfully recreated character designs to make longtime fans smile. Devastator versus Optimus Prime? Yes please.
Black Friday Event (November 27-29)
Rare amiibo Return - $12.99
To be fair, $12.99 is the GameStop retail price for amiibo figures, but this is your best shot at buying hard-to-find amiibo such as Ike from the Fire Emblem series, who has been MIA for months.
Buy Star Wars Battlefront, Receive Another EA Game for $30
Spend $59.99 on Battlefront, then buy Madden NFL 16, NHL 16, FIFA 16, Dragon Age Inquisition: Game of the Year Edition or Need for Speed for $30. If we had to pick, FIFA 16 or Dragon Age, hands down.
Xbox One 1 TB Elite Bundle - $449.99
If you want to go all in for Xbox One this holiday season, keep an eye on this bundle. The box contains the system and 1 TB hard drive, an Elite wireless controller, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay and Ori and the Blind Forest.
Black DualShock 4 Wireless Controller - $39.99
Considering first party controllers cost more than video games these days, now is the best time to grab an extra DualShock 4 while supplies last. Besides, you probably need another one if you took advantage of the aforementioned EA deal.
$20 Off Select PS4 Games
Add new titles to your growing PlayStation 4 library without destroying your wallet. The list includes Destiny: The Taken King ($39.99), Dying Light ($19.99), Batman Arkham Knight ($29.99), Dragon Quest Heroes ($39.99), Mortal Kombat X ($29.99) and Lego Jurassic World ($29.99), among others.
Freedom Wars - $4.99
GameStop will sell the Aqua Blue PlayStation Vita system for $169.99 Tuesday through Saturday, and if you jump on this deal, you might as well add the obscure Freedom Wars to the pile. At $5 you have little to lose in trying this deep action game.
Need a Memory Card? GameStop has a refurbished 8GB card for $11.99 during the pre-Black Friday event; not enough space for multiple game downloads, but great for lots of save files.
Wii U System Bundle - $279.99
Nintendo’s attractive Wii U bundle comes with the 32GB console, Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon. Considering Amazon currently sells the 32GB Mario Kart 8 box set for $299, this is a great deal.
Make sure you throw in a $34.99 pre-owned copy of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze!
