Best Buy 2-Day Sale Vs Amazon Black Friday Deals For Video Games

Posted on 03 November 2012 by author

We just receive a confirmation that Best Buy has already published its first 2-Day Sale that will begin on November 2-3 and expected to continue on every Friday and Saturday of the month until November 17 in preparation for the shop’s big doorbusters on Black Friday (November 23).

Under the shop’s video game category, we can see it’s offering Xbox 360 4GB Console at $179.99 from its original price of $199.99 with free shipping. There’s also Just Dance: Disney Party tag at $19.99 from regular price of $29.99. Browsing through the deals, the shop has enlisted Nintendo Wii Sports Bundle giving you the black console, Wii Mote, 2 free Wii Sports Games at $129.99 and we can also see the shop’s “Buy 1 Get 2nd For 50% Off” over selected games. See all the deals here.

But wait! Before you dive in and take these deals over the weekend, we receive a tip that Amazon has made some changes with its Black Friday Deals for video games which directly competes with Best Buy’s items.

Right now, Amazon is offering the Xbox 360 4GB Console at $178.19 while Just Dance for Wii is tagged at $19.29 from original price of $39.99. Also, we can see Amazon is promoting a larger set of deals for Xbox bundles featuring X360 4GB with Kinect Holiday bundle at $249 from $299, X360 250GB Holiday bundle at $249 from $299 and X360 250GB with Kinect Holiday Bundle at $349 from $399. Get the full list here.

Obviously, we can see big A has the advantage here for video games compared to Best Buy. However, one should consider both shops are just heating up and the real deals will only start to arrive a week before Thanksgiving.

Patience is a virtue.

Update: And just like that, Amazon has listed Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock bundle (Wii) including the game and the new rock-inspired controller for $39.99 from $79.99 while the Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2012 for PS3 is now tagged at $39.99 from $69.99.
