NerdAtlas Buy-Guide: Black Friday (Amazon & Target Deals Start Thursday)

For this Thursday, I went on the major retailer sites and found the best parts of their Black Friday deals. I tried to cut out all of the crappy Kinect games and junk – so these aren’t the comprehensive lists, but instead the most important deals I could find. Best of luck to everyone trying to score some games this Friday!


(As a note, Target’s Black “Friday” actually begins (Thanksgiving Day) at 9:00pm.)
