Wal-Mart Black Friday video game offer is big

Sneak peek shows some excellent prices
With the annual Black Friday shopping day almost upon us, Wal-Mart has come out of the gate offering a sneak peek at their offerings for Black Friday. While we looked over the entire Black Friday ad, the video game sale prices are quite good, with a number of offers to consider.
If you still don’t have a console or you are thinking about a second console, Wal-Mart is offering a $199 console bundle of your choice on Black Friday. Shoppers have the choice of these: an Xbox 360 4GB unit with Gears of War 3, 3 months of Xbox Live and a $50 Wal-Mart gift card; an Xbox 360 4GB with Kinect, Kinect Adventures, Gunstringer/Fruit Ninja download, and a $50 Gift Card; or a 160GB PlayStation 3 with Ratchet & Clank All 4 One, LittleBigPlanet 2, and 3 months of the Sony Plus membership.
Those that want a Wii will be able to get the new Blue-colored model for $100 with Mario & Sonic. This is the same European bundle that was announced a few weeks ago. The American release of this bundle (we are told) will be a Wal-Mart exclusive and will only be available during this holiday season.
Perhaps the biggest deal is on software. All of the recent releases such as Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, Gears of War 3, Infamous 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops, as well as a number of other $60 releases will be going for $28 on Black Friday. In addition, Kinect fans will be able to snag Dance Central 2 and Kinect Sports 2 for just $15. PlayStation 3 fans will be able to pick up Yakuza 4 for $10. Other titles are also being offered; we are just hitting on some of the highlights here.
So, if you are willing to get up early and take a chance, you might be able to pick up some good deals on video game console bundles and titles. The only real question is whether it is worth getting up super early and fighting the crowds. We can’t answer that, but we will tell you more about the electronics deals next week as more Black Friday sale information starts to leak out.
