Us Europeans are not quite sure what all this Black Friday nonsense is all about but if it increases consoles sales, that's cool. lol

 I think Walmart had a deal with some free Blu-ray movies or something. I don't remember seeing too many jaw dropping deals for gaming, but there were a few nice ones.

Once that video would of made great communist propaganda, I could see the Headline.

"Capitalist society in anarchy as population fight to buy remaining stocks..."

This is a great example of capitalism in action ;)

 That is very true.  there is nothing outside of the US like black friday. most of the shopping in the us is done for Christmas.  most countries don't celberate christmas like americans do with all the gift giving.



Love is whats most important.

 It isn't actually that busy.

The January sales in the major stores of London are far wore than that, although of course more people can get into our stores as there isn't as much flab fighting for bargains

Yes, the biggest retailer did -- Wal Mart.  I'm not sure what the specifics are, but it involved free Blu Ray movies (on top of the ones you could get by going to the Blu Ray website).

Yeah Australia has similar sales (and crowd surges) just after christmas (boxing day or the day after that, 26th or 27th)... News stories on it are typified by the 12 year old kid who has been instructed by his parents to piss-bolt ahead of everyone else and sit on the $3000 sofa going for $500 or whatever..



Bod, would you mind telling us when the next Wii shipment is gonna come in? I know they do come randomly sometimes but when is the next advertised shipment going on sale?

 

We should have like a Wii availability tipline thread or something.
