Black Friday, the day following Thanksgiving Day, is often described as one of the busiest — and most deal-filled — shopping days of the year. And it is right around the corner.
Alright, so maybe November 25 isn't that close, but that's not preventing retailers like Walmart from giving us a sneak peek at upcoming deals.
Walmart's most enticing offers this year? Video games.
You'll be able to pick up an Xbox 360 4GB console (with a Kinect accessory and all) for $200 — and you'll get a $50 Walmart gift card to sweeten the deal. If you're more of a Nintendo boy or girl, no worries: There'll be a limited edition blue Wii bundle for $100 and a PlayStation 3 bundle for $200 (no bonus gift cards with those though).
There will also be plenty of discounted games such as "Batman: Arkham City" for $28, "Dance Central 2" for $15 and "Battlefield 3" for $28.
You can check out a copy of your local Walmart's Black Friday 2011 circular ad for a look at the full listing of deals. It should be available online at this time.
Do note that Walmart intends on getting some of the Black Friday festivities started at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving day — yeah, that's a bit early. The electronics deals won't become available until midnight though, so you can at least digest your turkey meal properly before shopping.
