Holiday shopping madness is just around the corner, with deals from post-Thanksgiving "Black Friday" sales heralding video game savings. In addition to temporary price cuts, it appears new PlayStation 3, PSP and Nintendo DS bundles are en route.
Supposed scans from Sears' Black Friday print ads point to a pretty good deal on the PlayStation 3, which looks to include Game of the Year Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and a copy of The Karate Kid on Blu-ray that you could probably sell on eBay. Not too shabby at $US299.
Arguably as good a deal is Sears' Black Friday PSP offering. For $US129, you get a PSP-3000 with a copy of LittleBigPlanet and The Karate Kid on UMD. With UMD movies becoming more rare, that version of the Jaden Smith will surely fetch a high price on the secondary market.
On the Nintendo front...
...it appears that red and green Nintendo DSi handhelds are coming for Christmas. Sears will sell it for $US149 with a copy of Mario Party DS.
Finally, on the Xbox 360 side, Sears will sell the 4GB version of the console with a copy of Halo: Reach included for $US199. A deal, yes, but not the ideal Xbox 360 on which to play Halo: Reach. Buyer beware.
