Black Friday 2013: Game Stop Deals Confirmed - Sales on Xbox 360 and PS3 Bundles, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, and More
Unlike so many other stores, GameStop won't be open during Thanksgiving, however, the store will be open as of midnight, the official beginning of that horrendous stampede of consumer cattle known as Black Friday, and the retailer will be offering its own range of bargains.
We covered a flyer leak from GameStop in late October, and it seems like most of the deals are still on, if not better, as prices have been knocked fown. For example, the flyer had Battlefield 4 going for $30, but after the official announcement from the retailer, the game will now sell for $24.99. Same for Just Dance 4. The flyer had it for $20, and now, it'll be a mere $14.99.
As the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are still brand spanking new having only released this month, the deals are more limited to the last console generation like PS3 and Xbox 360, so don't think you'll be able to find a next-gen console for cheap (unless there's something they're not telling us). However, you can grab a 3 month Xbox Live membership for $14.99 (normally $24.99), and a 1 year PlayStation Plus membership for $29.99 (normally $49.99).
