Target Black Friday ad is out

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Those $30 door buster Switch games are definitely going to sell out quick.

I might have to bite on the $15 Resident Evil 2.

That PS4 deal is insane if it isn’t a ‘doorbuster’ or some heavily limited nonsense.

A PS4 for $200, plus three games. Probably doesn’t mean much to those of us who bought the PS4 straight away, but for casuals, that’s an amazing deal and reminiscent of PS2 gen prices and bundles.

I was thinking about the Death Stranding LE console, but $200 for a slim and 3 games.....it's tempting

Those arcade cabinets are smaller than I thought. Is it even possible to play 2 players? Too bad it doesn't have the best fighting game, Marvel Vs Capcom.

Damn, my brothers been borrowing my ps4 to play the f2p gundam game lately. Maybe I'll tell him to grab the 200 buck bundle and I'll swag his copies of gow and horizon lol.

For two grown people? Not comfortably. Even by yourself it might be too small depending on your size

Nothing for me although I'm mostly just looking for 4k Blu-ray deals though.

Why buy a console when next gen drops next year?
A lot of us here spent nearly as much on the games that come in that $200 PS4 bundle as the bundle itself with the hardware now costs. Console + 3 excellent, well-received games is quite the deal.

Some nice deals.

Looking forward to the offers retails will have around here. As usual I expect things in line with "BLACK FRIDAY FINAL MEGA SALE..... KILLZONE SHADOW FALL ONLY $14.99!!!!!!"


Why buy a console when next gen drops next year?
Maybe the people who wait for the console to be $199 with 3 games on black friday aren't going to go running to the store to pick up a Ps5 for $499 (?) at launch.
Could also be PC/Xbox/Switch Owners who want a Ps4 to play some exclusives or simply people that are short on cash or have other priorities for their money spending.

2017: Omg a Ps4 Slim for $199 is insane
2018: Omg a Ps4 Slim with Spiderman for $199 is insane
2019: Omg a Ps4 Slim with 3 old $10 games for $199 is insane

That's why Sony is laughing at their fans and makes a shit ton of money.


Just Nintendo is worse going with the exact same deal from 2018.
What a joke.

That PS4 deal is pretty nice... Got rid of mine 2 1/2 years ago to go all in on PC gaming. Hoping to pick one up again to play some of the exclusives I've missed out on since then. Or I could just ask Santa for one and hope his fat ass makes it down the chimney on Dec 25. Decisions Decisions...

Anyway you look at it wether you want to admit it or not it’s a pretty damned good deal.
It's not. If you look at the market is a super bad deal.
But I have to admit it, Sony is smart to exploit not so smart customers who don't care and don't follow markets and prices.

This is Sony's year.
Gotta agree on this one, that Xbox One X offering is pretty weak. $350 for the One X + Gears 5 is a good deal but like others have said there isn't much sense in dropping that much cash with next gen coming next year. The X is a weird choice because it's geared towards people that gotta have "the best".

Would have made sense for them to release a $99 SAD bundle.

Yeah I actually agree with this, it's basically the same deal for the last three years with a change of games. I got Spiderman, Horizon and God of War for under $40 total like two weeks ago.

There's a point where this "insane deal" becomes just normal and expectation, $150 would be an insane deal, this is not.

I've been without a PS4 for a few years now but that's an awful tempting proposition to jump back in.

That is only a problem if you already own a PS4 and those games.

A price drop is coming, I am sure. But Sony is clearly timing it with the PS5 official reveal next year.

That’s just your opinion, I do think it’s a great deal for people that don’t have a PS4, you get a good system with 3 arguably the best PS4 games out free.
Can you explain why people are not smart buying this for lets say a gift for Christmas time for someone that hasn’t had PS4 this gen.

I'm actually going to be in the US on vacation over Black Friday. Definitely gonna try and snag me some bargains. Is Target the best bet for games?
