Black Friday 2011 — PlayStation 3 Deals Round-Up Edition

Ps3Maven helps you find the best deals for Black Friday, starting November 25th.

With the possibility of traveling far distances to meet up with loved ones, visiting pests relatives about to occupy your home, or spending way too much time in the kitchen slaving over a turkey, Thanksgiving week is bound to be a hectic one for many of us celebrating it. (Be thankful it comes once a year!)

So really, the last thing you want to do is fish around the web for Black Friday deals, of which there will be in much supply come this Friday, November 25th. That’s why we’ve gone ahead and rounded up every PlayStation 3 sale from every retailer participating and posted them below. We were thinking of giving you a can of cranberry sauce instead, but I think you’ll agree this is much better.

Off the bat, you might notice that the headlining deal that every outfit is sharing in is a $200 PlayStation 3 bundle featuring Ratchet & Clank All 4 One and LittleBigPlanet 2, but only ToysRus is adding in a free PS3 wireless controller with that order. Ideally that would be the best deal, but honestly, any shop you decide to go to on either Friday or Saturday will fit your PS3 wants, if need be.

Remember, some deals might change on the fly — so as the old saying goes, first come, first serve!

ToysRus

Surprisingly ToysRus will get a jump start on the competition by opening — or rather — starting their Black Friday extravaganza three hours early (9:00 pm Thursday night). What’s also surprising though, is the selection of deals; which I mean there is hardly none of besides the aforementioned PS3 bundle for $200 (this one gives you a free wireless controller, probably a third party one though). I do like the buy one PS3 game, buy another for five dollars offer — yet the catalog of what to choose over is slim pick’ins. Aw, shucks!

PlayStation 3

  • PlayStation 3 160GB Console Bundle w/ Ratchet & Clank All 4 One & LittleBigPlanet 2, + Bonus Wired Controller – $199.99
  • Radium Wireless Controller for PS3 – $20.99
  • Buy One Select Game, Get One Select Game for $5 – choose from:

LittleBigPlanet
Uncharted 2
God of War III
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
Sims 3
Need for Speed: The Run
Battlefield 3
Rage
Madden NFL 12
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
Call of Duty Black Ops
Nascar 12
Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension

Walmart

Again! Open at midnight. Now, what’s really good here is Walmart’s variety of $10 – $15 games (I spy Yakuza 4 at $10 — holy moly), plus they beat every retailer by selling Batman: Arkham City and Battlefield 3 for two dollars less ($28 each). Which I guess is cool, if your care about saving every shopping dollar you can.

Yup, also open at midnight. Actually, Target’s first year in doing so. Goes to show how all this Black Friday madness has caused quite stir for U.S. retailers that want every shopping dollar they can get. Disappointingly, nothing too special here — but for picking up Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim or Rayman Origins you do get a ten dollar gift card; that’s kinda nice, maybe.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks! – ABC102D.
