PS4 dominating Black Friday at my Best Buy

Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS4 dominating Black Friday at my Best Buy

PS4 slim with uncharted, last of us, R&C, at 249$...... sounds like a good bundle/price.

Isn't Best Buy always skewed in PS4's favour? That's what I read elsewhere

And will you have enough stock for tomorrow?

I've heard that to. Based on my own anecdotal evidence I'd agree with that statement, from what I've seen Xbox shoppers go to Gamestop, Walmart, and Target mostly, whereas Amazon and Best Buy seem to be more favored by PS4 shoppers.

Where were they last gen? PS3 could've used some Black Friday wins.

Poor WiiU...

well... not much to say. Nintendo has just let it die (contrary to what some ppl say support wise).

I guess most of the best games will get a 2nd lease on life with the Switch.

"At Best Buy and there is no Wii U for sale at all. Replaced by Wii versions of Skylanders. I was wondering why I never saw any promos lol" -

I was at a Best Buy earlier today and an oblivious customer asked the Sony rep standing by the demo ps4 to get an Xbox One S down from an overhead storage area. The rep sighed and said he can pick one up at the cashier in a manner that he's said that a hundred times already.

Sorry OP - I'm not buying your tale.

I'm also in Chicago and went to three different Best Buys while shopping around. I saw a crap load of PS4 slims and even more PS4 Pros in displlay. I feel the OP is somewhat biased or has a very outlier Best Buy



Sounds about right

Don't feel bad. Nintendo needs to feel some pain.

We need to make sure they're going to work extra hard on the Switch.

Its not about work ethics... its about haveing the right "mind set" from the get go, and makeing smart design choices.

Nintendo dont play it safe, they love to gamble. Sometimes it pays off big like with the Wii.

Othertimes their "idea" from the onset just isnt good, and they run with it, and market goes "nope we dont like this", and you end up in a Wii U like situation.

Not only that though, they made bad hardware design choices (that tablet controller costing 80$ in BoM was a issue through the intire gen for them).

Their marketing messed up too... and nintendo went with a bad name for the console.

They need to play it safe, and listen to their consumers.

An excellent learning experience then! I think the reveal for the Switch was pulled off quite well.

You're right about the gambler part though: makes things exciting.

I think I'd prefer Nintendo work hard on the Switch. I'm going to need them to if they want my hard-earned money.



I'm very interested in the end result
