The holiest of shopping holidays, Black Friday, is rapidly approaching, and with it, the money-saving hopes of North American consumers are on the rise. It’ll be a big one for gamers, what with new consoles – and their respective launch lineups – joining an already-rich offering of holiday releases. Now you can get your Black Friday planning on a little early, with what appears to be GameStop’s official Black Friday 2013 circular.
The big news from the circular is that Nintendo’s recently revealed 3DS XL bundle, that packs The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds in alongside a stylishly Zelda-branded version of the handheld, will be coming to North America. The bundle was previously confirmed only for Europe, but GameStop’s circular – provided it’s accurate – seemingly confirms a release in the United States as well, at a price of $220.
There aren’t any listed deals for the new consoles, but both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be knocked down to $200; alternatively, you can grab a pre-owned Wii for $40. Several of the big holiday titles will see one-day price reductions as well, with Call of Duty: Ghosts down to $50, Assassin’s Creed IV, WWE 2K14, and Diablo III down to $40, and Battlefield 4 down to $30. Note that these sales figures appear to relate only to current-gen/PC versions of each game.
