Which is the best Black Friday deal (think value not price)?

PS3 $200
X360 $200
PS-Vita $200
3DS $150
Wii U MSRP Price or lower if I can find it
Wii U - Any bundle < $500
Wii U - I pay anything, I needs it :)
PC Gaming Rig + Steam cheap games FTW :)
iOS / Android - Mobile cheap games FTW :)
Other - I found a better deal which is described in comments

I am describing the deals here which are confirmed per the Best Buy Black Friday preview release. If there are any better/different, then please vote Other and describe the deal in comment.

PS3 $200

  • 250GB Super Slim with standard accessories (controller, cables, etc)
  • Uncharted Greatest Hits Dual Pack (Uncharted Drake's Fotune, Uncharted 2 - Among Thieves, + various DLC)
  • InFAMOUS Collection (inFAMOUS, inFAMOUS 2, and inFAMOUS Festival of Blood)
  • 30 days of PS+

X360 $200

  • 250GB Slim with standard accessories (controller, cables, etc)
  • Forza Motorsport 4
  • Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • XBL 15-30 day trial? I am assuming is included somewhere in there

PS-Vita $200

  • PS-Vita Black with standard accessories
  • Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified
  • 4GB Proprietary PS-Vita Only Memory Card

3DS $150

  • Red 3DS with standard accessories (charging dock, 2GB SD card, cables, etc)
  • Super Mario 3D Land

Provided you are a gamer, aren't a platform loyalist of some kind, and just didn't get one of these due to time or financial constraints, which of these do you feel would be stupid to pass up at these kind of values?

My Answer:

The best is kind of hard to guage between PS3, X360, and 3DS because I have all of that already. The worst at least in my view is that PS-Vita deal. The regular bundle with Assassin's Creed 3 Liberations is better value to me for that one. In terms of value I got... the PS3 with those games is phenomenal value for someone of my gaming taste.

I've already got everything but the Vita, which actually seems like a pretty good deal.

But if I was choosing for someone who had zero consoles, I would recommend the PS3 first and the 3DS second.

P.S. Are any of those games downloadable codes instead of a hard copy, cusman?

Wow that ps3 bundle looks VERY good 5 games VS 2 games for the xbox bundle, plus the ps+ for 30 days means you get access to another 8-10 free games off the psn.

Im pretty sure Skyrim is a download code cause we have a the same bundle here in nz and it comes with skyrim as a DL

From the flyer the only one that seemed to be Digital was the Skyrim included in X360 bundle just because it looked more like a Download Card thing in the picture rather than regular game box.

I think even Festival of Blood is on disk for the PS3 bundle. Naturally all the PS+ free games would be digital as well.

The PS-Vita bundles for AC3-Liberation was physical cartridge but no game case, so Black Ops might be similar. I wouldn't recommend Black Ops for Vita because it was made by Nihilistic (terrible developer infamous for Resistance Burning Skies on PSV and Playstation Move Heroes on PS3).

Thanks, think-man :)

Well, that only makes me feel more confident that the PS3 deal is the best deal. Then 3DS. Then the rest.



Man, those are some serious bargains!

The PS3 and 360 bundles are great for anyone who hasn't picked up a HD console yet or those looking to upgrade to newer models. There's a wealth of content there at a fantastic price.

In terms of which is the best. probably the PS3 deal (but I'm not big into handhelds).

A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.
