Time to slow down on the Black Friday ad train and bring you one that is very lacking on the deals, especially where games are concerned. GameStop’s ad is not going to completely compete with the mega retailers like Best Buy or Wal-Mart. They will have a bare bones 4GB Xbox 360 S for $149, bare bones meaning system and controller only. For $50 more, you can go elsewhere and get one with games and a bigger hard drive. They’ll have the 160GB PS3 with Little Big Planet 2 and Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One for $199. They have some games like Duke Nukem Forever and Medal of Honor for $9.99 but there isn’t much here to blow smoke up your skirts. $15 PS3 Greatest Hits, $19 L.A. Noire? Been done as just regular sale items.
Full on, in your face on the front page of the ad is the Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Edition 3DS for $199! No guessing or squinting here, they claim they’ll have it. Big deal as no announcement for it hitting our shores was ever made. They have a trade in deal where you can get it for $99 if you give them your old DSi Xl. GameStop is featuring more Nintendo items in their ad versus the other guys so far. If you’re desperate to trade in some stuff and maybe get that Zelda 3DS, GS may be the stop for you. Otherwise I’d stay away. Hit the source link after the jump and decide for yourselves.
