Black Friday 2012: A Gamer’s Survival Guide

blackfriday Black Friday 2012: A Gamers Survival Guide

It’s the week of Thanksgiving in the US. That means three things, really. One: You’ve already been bombarded with Christmas music for three weeks. Two: You’re going to eat way too much food making small talk with relatives you don’t particularly care for and any down time will probably be spent fixing their computers. And Three: The American people are going to go bat shit crazy in stores nationwide on Friday trying to save a few bucks.

Well ladies and gentlemen; I’m here to tell you that soccer mom’s don’t get to have all the fun. Black Friday features a good amount of video game deals this year, and since you don’t have the time to drive around town all day, I’ve taken it upon myself to bring you the “best of” so you can narrow down your search and hopefully not get trampled to death by some lady insistent on getting that last Furby for her kids.

In all seriousness, I’d like to take a quick second to wish the best of holidays to you and your family from all of us here at WeGotThisCovered. Have a great one, and we’ll see you again next week. Let us know how helpful this is for you, and tell us in the comments what you ended up grabbing.

gamestop logo Black Friday 2012: A Gamers Survival Guide

The nation’s largest video game retailer is sure to get some traffic, so any item that they don’t have in store but is available online can be bought in store and shipped to your home with free value shipping, which should take about five business days. Gamestop’s “Pick-Up In Store” feature from their website will be active on Black Friday, but your guess is as good as mine if an employee will be able to make it actually work. We recommend you use the feature, but don’t be heartbroken if they can’t keep up with demand. Above all else, remember not to take it out on the employees there, their day is going to be long enough as it is.

We saved the biggest for last. The 500 pound gorilla of retail doesn’t have anything that will wow you when it comes to the consoles, but you can expect to find a plethora of games marked down under $25, so expect some competition. Some of these deals will vary based on state, such as if you’re in Oklahoma, so you may want to check the prices at your local shop.

Many of these games are out on multiple platforms, but we’re only reporting them on the consoles they’ve been confirmed on in order to ease confusion. Don’t be surprised to see a few more out there.
