Best PS3 Black Friday Deals


Black Friday is almost upon us and GameZone has come to the rescue for those of you lost in the gaming discount madness.  By now every major retailer has announced their Black Friday gaming deals and we have sorted through them all to list the places where you can get the best deals.  As expected, Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are the leading contenders.

Below you will find a breakdown of what each store is offering exclusively for the PlayStation 3 and where you can get the most for your hard-earned money.  The popular item this year seems to be the 160GB PlayStation 3 bundle which is being sold at basically every retailer, but you can find some pretty sweet PS3 deals if you look hard enough.  Luckily, we've looked for you and listed what you can purchase for that special someone this holiday season.


Amazon has already had a slew of video game and PS3 sales leading up to the big day.  The most recent includes today's Gold Box Deals on PlayStation Move items.   Amazon is offering an exclusive PlayStation 3 Holiday Bundle.  For a limited time, gamers can purchase the PS3 Holiday Bundle for $370.  It may sound steep, but you get a PS3 160GB Console with"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" Blu-ray Disc, New Owners Kit, Sony PS3 Media/Blu-ray Disc Remote Control, and Sony-exclusive Resistance 3.  If you are looking for games, Amazon tends to run daily sales for video games for all platforms.

Best Buy

Best Buy has several doorbusting deals for PlayStation 3 owners, including games discounted by up to 50%.  Battlefield 3, Need for Speed: The Run, Dead Island, and PS3-exclusive Uncharted 3 will all be $29.99.  Of course, if you don't yet own a PS3, this might be the perfect opportunity.  Best Buy is selling a 160gig PS3 bundle with Little Big Planet 2 and Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One for $199.99.

Best Buy is also offering a PS3 Move Motion Controller ($29.99), PS Move Controller Charging Station ($14.99), Radium Wireless Controller ($14.99)

Stores open at 12:00 am Friday, November 25th but Best Buy is offering these deals online starting Thursday, November 24th.


Like Best Buy, Target is selling 160gig PS3 bundle with Little Big Planet 2 and Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One for the exact same price of $199.99.  So if Best Buy runs out, you might have a chance to pick one up at Target.  Those looking for an extra controller can pick up the PS3 DualShock Controller for $39.  If you already own a console and have all the controllers you need, you might be interested in Target's PlayStation 3 gaming deals.  When buying Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Rayman Origins, you can get a $10 Gift Card included. 

Target is also offering four different pricing tiers for various games. For $37 dollars you can purchase Battlefield 3, Madden NFL 12, NFS: The Run, and Playstation-exclusive Resistance 3.  For $27 dollars you can get Disney Universe. The lower tiers are filled with Xbox, Wii, and DS games.

Target also opens its doors at midnight on Thanksgiving.


Walmart is offering a similar PS3 bundle, but for three cents cheaper.  For $199.96 gamers can pick-up a 160GB PlayStation 3 console bundled with Little Big Planet 2 and Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One.  For those looking for something more hardcore, but a little pricier, Walmart is selling a PlayStation 3 320GB Uncharted 3 Value Bundle which includes the 320GB console, DS3 controller, Choice of Controller or starter kit, Sony's exclusive blockbuster title Uncharted 3, and your choice of "one greatest hits game" (God of War, Resistance 2, Infamous, and up to 14 more titles).

Walmart is also offering an exclusive transluscent blue controller for $54.96.

**Notable Mentions**

Toys R Us is offering the PS3 160GB Bundle, with a free PS3 power a wired controller for $199.99 as well.

Sears is offering a few game titles for PlayStation 3 only, including FIFA Soccer 12 ($39.99), Madden NFL 12 ($39.99), and RAGE ($29.99).  The 160GB PlayStation 3 is ALSO being sold here for $199.99.  Sears is also offering a PS3 wireless controller for $34.99, Wireless headset for $29.99, and a selection of "PlayStation 3 Greatest Hit Games".

GameStop is easily one of the largest video game retailers.  In being so they are offering an abundance of discounted prices for various video games.  If a store is out of a game, odds are GameStop will have a copy, but don't expect any great deals.  They are, however, selling the limited edition Uncharted 3 PS3 bundle for $299.99.
