Report: GameStop Black Friday sale has 360, PS3, Vita bundles, more


GameStop's Black Friday deals haven't officially hit its website or print ads, but an anonymous employee sent the sales over to Cheap Ass Gamer, and boy are they as juicy as grandma's holiday turkey.

GameStop's lead deal is an Xbox 360 250GB bundle that includes Skyrim, Forza 4 and Black Ops 2 – yes, the new one that we're pretty fond of – for $250. The PS3 250GB bundle runs $200 and includes five free games: Infamous, Infamous 2, Infamous: Festival of Blood, Uncharted, and Uncharted 2. The PS Vita White gets its own deal, bundled with Assassin's Creed: Liberation for $200. These three hardware deals are for Friday, November 23, only.

Also only on sale Friday is a range of games, including Battlefield 3 Premium Edition for $30, Forza Horizon for $40, Ratchet and Clank Collection for $20, Little Big Planet Karting for $30, Mortal Kombat on Vita for $15, and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale for $40 with the purchase of a new PS3.

Not labeled as "Friday only" is a Limited Edition 3DS bundle with Super Mario 3D Land pre-installed and one of three Nintendogs games for $170. Used Kinect sensors with Kinect Adventures are $40 and used DSi XLs are $80.

GameStop also has a hefty software sale for the weekend, including Dishonored for $30, Assassin's Creed 3 for $50, Max Payne 3 for $20, Borderlands 2 for $40, and more, all for PS3 and Xbox 360. For Wii U (assuming you can get a Wii U console), Scribblenauts Unlimited, FIFA 13 and Batman Arkham City Armored Edition are $50 each, and Game Party is $30. 3DS gets Theatrhythm Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance for $20, among other games. For PC, Diablo 3 and StarCraft 2 are $30, Cataclysm is $10 and some Sims 3 expansions are $20.

GameStop's "pick-up in store" system will work on Black Friday, and any item not in-store but available online can be ordered and paid for at the store, then shipped directly to the customer, which takes five business days. Check out Cheap Ass Gamer for the complete lineup.
