  • PS4 Black Friday Deals: Top 5!

    This is the second Black Friday for the Sony PS4, and with stores (somewhat) stocked with consoles, you should be able to finally score a deal on some next generation goodness.  Last year, Black Friday online deals were slightly better than Cyber Monday.

    With another year under it's belt, the PS4 has a robust game catalog.  Even the top recent releases including Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 4, and Destiny.

    Many deals are getting sprinkled throughout the days leading up to Black Friday.  The good news is that many stores are already beating or matching planned Black Friday deals online, including the likes of Amazon via their daily pre-Black friday lightning deals.

    After reviewing the Gamerdeals Black Friday 2014 ad list, what are the top 5 Xbox One Black Friday deals?

    Here we go...


    #5:  We all know that buying recent releases is a dumb financial decision.  Literally weeks after release, I cringe when I begin to see the steep discounts on that title that I had to have on it's release date.  Somehow though, we still do it... If you must do it, Black Friday is probably a bit more forgiving on those recent release purchases.  In particular, we are impressed with the $15 Target gift card offer on titles including Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 4, WWE 2K15 and Destiny.

     Product Details

    #4:  Next on the list is searching for the best Black Friday deal on the Dualshock 4 wireless controller.  Both BestBuy and Target have them discounted to $49.99, a savings of $15.

    Product Details

    #3:  If you are looking for cheap PS4 Black Friday deals on low priced games, make sure to check out BestBuy this year.  They have several classic PS4 titles to choose from at $19.99 including The Evil Within, MLB The Show, and Assassin's Creed Black Flag. 

    Product Details

    #2: The PlayStation camera is featured in several Black Friday Ads this year.  What is the best deal available?  Walmart, GameStop and BestBuy have it marked down to $39.99.

    Product Details

    #1:  For those looking to secure the next generation PlayStation 5 console this Black Friday, your best bet will likely come from Walmart.  They are already featuring several PS4 console bundles with a bonus $50 gift card.  Just about every other retailer is featuring the Black Friday PS4 console bundle with GTA V + The Last of Us Remastered.

  • Penguins of Madagascar Video Game Releases on Nintendo Platforms

    Worldwide video game publisher, Little Orbit, announced the release of Penguins of Madagascar, the video game based on the upcoming film “Penguins of Madagascar” from DreamWorks Animation (in theaters November 26th). The game is now available on Nintendo 3DS, Wii and Wii U and follows the adventures of Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private in the pursuit of their beloved Cheezy Dibbles.

    Players will join their favorite elite spy team of penguins in a hunt for their precious Cheezy Dibbles, but along the way they stumble upon a nefarious plot from the evil octopus, Dave (Dr. Octavius Brine). The Penguins travel from their Tiki Home Base to exotic locales all over the world in an attempt to thwart Dave’s evil plans.

    Penguins of Madagascar is a stealth platformer where players take on the role of any of the four penguin heroes and can instantly swap between them depending on skills needed to face every zany situation encountered.  Players will solve puzzles and utilize each penguin’s individual abilities like wall climbing and ledge grabs to foil Dave’s diabolical plan. Resourceful penguins will use helpful objects like conveyor belts and moving platforms to accomplish their missions while gathering glorious Cheezy Dibbles along the way.

    “Our goal was to bring that same irreverent humor that these characters are so well known for in the movies to our game,” said Matt Scott, President of Little Orbit.  “The Penguins are fun to watch as they attempt their own version of covert ops on the big screen, and we think our game captures that same hilarious tone as you play on the smaller screen!”

  • Black Friday Xbox One Deals: Top 5!

    The Xbox One Black Friday deals are set to kick off in less than 3 days!  Shortly after, the Xbox One Cyber Monday deals for 2014 will be available in case you missed on a few of the desirable deals.  Microsoft has taken a very aggressive pricing strategy this holiday as the Xbox One attempts to make up ground on the Sony PlayStation 4 since the initial launch last year.  A $50 price cut to the Xbox One console gets it at $349.99 for most bundles.  Additional Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts and bonus gift cards are set to sweeten the pie even more. 

    In addition to sales on the Xbox One console, games and accessories are also heavily featured by many retailers this year as well.  Deals on launch games from 2013, as well as recent releases are there for the taking if you have a plan and are quick with the mouse (or with your legs)! 

    Many deals are getting sprinkled throughout the days leading up to Black Friday.  The good news is that many stores are already beating or matching planned Black Friday deals online, including the likes of Amazon via their daily pre-Black friday lightning deals.

    After reviewing the Gamerdeals Black Friday 2014 ad list, what are the top 5 Xbox One Black Friday deals?

    Here we go...

    #5:  For some of the latest recent releases including Halo Master Chief Collection, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, and Far Cry 4, look no further than Target.  They are offering a free $15 Gift Card with these games.  Save an additional 5% with the Target Red Card as well.

    Product Details

    #4:  Black Friday deals on the Xbox One wireless controller are next on the list.  The current deal price of $39.99 can be had at BestBuy, Target and Walmart.  Kmart has it for the same price as a doorbuster on Black Friday if you have plans to be there already. I have a feeling we will be seeing a price match on the Xbox One Wireless Controller at Amazon as well.

    Product Details

    #3:  Speaking of must have accessories for the Xbox One, the Xbox One Stereo Headset is being promoted at $49.99 at Amazon right now.  Both BestBuy and GameStop are advertising the $49.99 price come Black Friday as well. 

    Product Details

    #2:  Now, onto the cheap games!  With a full year under it's belt, we are starting to see those early adopter launch titles getting significant discounts.  BestBuy is featuring their popular Buy 2, Get 1 free promotion on used games.  In addition, they have several games for $14.99 including LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.

     Product Details

    #1:  The Xbox One Black Friday console bundle promoted this year is the Assassin's Creed bundle with 2 games.  Target is featuring the Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity + Black Flag bundle for $329.99 with a bonus $50 Gift Card.  We hope that Amazon matches this as part of their scheduled lightning deals or featured gold box items.
