Black Friday Video Game Deals - Mini "Best Of" Guide

See also

With what has been dubbed 'Black Friday,' where retail stores offer 'door buster' sales and long lines the day after Thanksgiving here in North America, this can almost be seen as a separate holiday for many gamers looking to add to their collection of games and accessories.

Most retailers now offer online deals and even sales that can last for up to a whole week. Fry's Electronics is having a pre-Black Friday sale. Best Buy is still holding its ticket distribution system, allowing costumers to line up outside its doors on Thursday in hopes of receiving a ticket placeholder for the product of their choice. Other stores have begun this concept, as well. That way, sleeping in on Black Friday wont result in missing out on that TV you've been eyeing, while avoiding the chaos.

Newegg.com is also having a pre-Black Friday sale. Most PC gamers should shop there already, but it never hurts to check out its holiday frenzy deals.

Now, let's take a look at some of the must-haves for tech geeks and gamers this Black Friday.
