Black Friday (November 29th), the traditional beginning of the holiday shopping season, is always packed with sales to lure us away from our computers and into shopping centers. This year's deals at GameStop are particularly tempting for WoW
-players -- or those that want to become WoW
players. On offer are the World of Warcraft
Battle Chest (which includes expansions up to Cataclysm
) for $5, Mists of Pandaria
for $10, and a 60-day game time card for $5. The former offers are a great deal for anyone looking to get friends into WoW
, but the latter is a great deal for any active player -- even if you don't usually use game time cards, the appeal of getting $30 worth of gameplay for $5 is definitely high.
Bear in mind, however, that this information is coming from a leaked Black Friday ad
on the site BlackFriday.com and could still change -- so you may want to wait for an official announcement from GameStop
before you start camping out in front of your local shop.
Editors note: Gamestop will not be selling $5 game time cards on Black Friday. For the correct information, please visit our updated post.
