Video Game Black Friday Guide For In-Store Purchases

Black Friday is coming soon in all its glory and horror. Those who have participated in the past know the struggle of swimming through a crowd of hungry consumers to get that special item. Black Friday is especially an exciting time for buying video games because newly released games get incredible price drops. However, without some sort of Black Friday battle plan, it’s near impossible to get all the best prices. This guide will help you plan your shopping trip and get the cheapest prices for all your favorite games and consoles without the hassle of searching through ads.
