Alright with black friday right around the corner many parents and gamers alike are trying to find the best deals for whatever games, consoles or accessories they want to purchase. Here is a quick guide to some hot deals coming up in black friday ads, the info is from printed ad copies I have obtained from various sources online and from employees.

Another handy tool to use is a pricetracker for many items you are considering purchase of, especially larger items. Simply search for a price tracker and find which works best for you. I have the best of luck using Bing to find products and then pricetrackers.

Enjoy black friday and I will post some cyber monday deals when more news gets leaked!

Best Buy #281 - The Night Before 'Black Friday'

So with all the new motion gaming coming out after the Nintendo Wii originally stole the spotlight what do you all think the best gaming system for motion control games will be? You can base it off opinion, experience or just cause you have a grudge against a system. As for the holiday’s and my marketing background I think that Kinect will attract the family audience while the Playstation will attract some more Ps3 guru types and become more of a niche product. The success of these devices comes down to what games, past and future, will support some interaction with the new devices. I am hoping to see some shooting games and maybe some rally games for Kinect and some fighting and shooting games on Playstation. Now Vote in the polls section!
