    First of all, happy turkey corpse consumption day.

    Now, start posting any Black Friday deals you come across. There should be more than a few this year. I’ll start things off:

    Kotaku’s big list of Black Friday deals

    Black Friday Info’s list

    And BFAds has a good list, too.

    Some of these deals aren’t really deals, they’re just advertisements. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood for full price, for example. But for the most part, you can save some money. Me, I’m looking for an Xbox 360 at a decent price so I can finally play through some of its games. Alan Wake, maybe Halo Reach, things like that. $200 for a 4GB 360 just isn’t going to cut it, though.

    Desides, if you thought you could sell the Kinect for $100 or more (assuming you have no interest in it) starting at 1am EST tomorrow on Dell they have the 4GB Kinect Bundle w/ 1 yr of Xbox live for $300.

    http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/...643&acd=10550055-1225267-u350258t0f0fp0c0s441

    $300 w/ code SG74BKD$S88B01

    Free Shipping


    Hell, if you didn't want the yr of Live you could probably sell it for $40-50 with no problem.

    Trouble is, I can’t spare the $300 in the first place. Ah well.

    NFS Hot Pursuit is $34.99 at bestbuy.com (online), with no shipping nor tax... unless you live in CA you need to pay that Use Tax when you file your tax return (yeah... right). (Edit, wrong about the tax part... I'm used to getting by crap at amazon)

    Thanks for the lead on the AC... hadn't seen it on sale anywhere.

    What a great time to have my 4 year old 360 RROD. Been wanting to get a new one. Looks like I'm going to do that deal from Amazon for a 4GB Xbox + $60 gift card for $199.99 since I already have a 120GB HDD and transfer cable.

    Remember, the 360 case was redesigned and shrunk. Might not be compatible.

    It was. Hence the mention of a transer cable which you plug into the HDD and USB port on the 360.

    I've read that the physical hard drives are the same, and with a little bit of work you can get the old 120gb into the new S model.

    They are. You can take apart the old HDD to make it fit into the new ones.

    Got it. Thought you were going to just slap one into the other. :lol:

    Speaking of the 360, still can’t find a good deal on a 360 with any sort of HDD space. Might have to just wait another year for price drops. Or, at this rate, wait until the Xbox 720 comes out and pick up a 360 for cheap off eBay.

    It’s a shame Skyward Sword hasn’t already come out. That’s the last game forcing me to keep my Wii. Otherwise I’d sell it and convert that into a 360.

    @amazongames on Twitter is broadcasting various timed Black Friday specials. Halo Reach for $30, God of War Collection discounted, that sort of thing.
