Sister site Xbox 360 Fanboy got the goods on some upcoming Black Friday deals yesterday. For those of you who may not know, Black Friday (so very appropriately named) is the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving, when stores feature gargantuan sales in an effort to suck shoppers in and kick-start the Christmas shopping season.

Best Buy is having an $18.99 sale featuring:
  • Amped 3
  • Condemned
  • NBA Live '06
  • Rockstar Games Presents: Table Tennis
  • The Outfit (apparently you can score this one for only $9.99 if you buy it in-store before noon)
Circuit City offers a different set at $16.99:
  • Full Auto
  • Gun
  • Perfect Dark Zero
  • Quake 4
  • Tony Hawk's American Wasteland
Our advice is to call the stores to find out if these deals will be available online and stay inside. Black Friday is normally a hellish experience with a lot of pushing, shoving and greed. In fact, we're surprised Rockstar hasn't made a video game version yet.

Your mission: take out other shoppers before they can get your sale items.
