Black Friday is coming up in a week and a half, and like most years, video games are at the top of many wish lists. Here are the top video game deals being offered on Black Friday from Target:
Assassin’s Creed II (PS3 & XBOX 360)
Regular price: $59.99
Target Black Friday Price: $59.99 + $10 gift card
Assassin’s Creed II is the sequel to the wildly popular Assassin’s Creed and is one of the most hyped games of the holiday season. Although the game isn’t on sale per se, you’ll get a $10 gift card with the purchase, and to get such a new video game (Assassin’s Creed II was released on November 17) as part of any deal is a definite plus.
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3 & XBOX 360)
Regular price: $59.99
Target Black Friday price: $37.99
According to a story from 1UP.com, Batman: Arkham Asylum had already sold around 2 million copies by the middle of September, making it one of the highest selling video games of the year. Although many already own it, those who don’t will have a shot with a whopping $22 discount on the regular retail price, and the deal applies to both the PS3 and the XBOX 360 versions, which makes this deal even better. If you want it, get to Target early, ’cause a deal like this will certainly sell quickly.
Guitar Hero 5 (Nintendo Wii)
Regular Price: $59.99
Target Black Friday Price: $37.99
Released in early September, the fifth installment in the Guitar Hero series will be over $20 off on Black Friday, but only if you want it for the Wii. The Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will not be on sale, which lessens the overall impact of the deal. Nonetheless, it’s a huge discount on a game that is sure to be on a lot of kids’ wish lists.
XBOX 360 Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition “Super Elite” console
Regular price: $399.99
Target Black Friday Price: $399.99 + $50 gift card
This special edition XBOX 360 is a true beast among consoles. It comes with everything a gamer needs: Two controllers, a headset, adapter cables, a copy of Call of Duty 2: Modern Warfare, and a 250 GB hard drive, twice as large as the normal XBOX Elite comes with (120 GB). Although it has a hefty price tag, the Black Friday deal, where the buyer gets a $50 gift card with their purchase, makes this a relative steal. It’s only $100 more than a normal XBOX 360 Elite not factoring in the gift card, and it comes with an extra controller, one of the top games of 2009 (Call of Duty 2), and twice the hard drive space, which altogether is worth much more than the $100 difference.
PS3 or XBOX 360 wireless controllers
Regular price: $49.99
Target Black Friday price: $39.00
Whether needing an extra controller for parties or replacing an old, broken one, Playstation 3 and XBOX 360 controllers will be $10 off on Black Friday. Anyone who’s ever tried an off-brand controller knows that they often don’t work as well as those controllers produced by the game system manufacturer, so this deal is sure to be a hit among gamers for either system.
There you go! There are many other video games for sale at Target, but these five are definitely the best deals available. Happy Black Friday shopping everyone!
