Black Friday will soon be upon us, bringing with it two notable things: 1) some of the lowest prices of the year, and 2) The fires of Hell being stoked, for another year, by the seething hatred of retail employees. Yours truly falls into the latter camp, finding myself taking a jaunt into the city at 4:00 AM to deal with the Great Unwashed, and generally battling the urge to d*ck punch every Black Friday shopper that wanders into my field of vision.
Yet the internet heals all wounds, and as such, Black Friday's d*che-less equivalent has reared its digital head. The deals are too many to name, so in the interest of brevity, I will spare you an orgy of titles and prices, and instead provide a helpful little selection of some of the bounty you can claim during the e-madness.
Black Friday: Because face it, no matter how much of a jerk I am to you, you're still going to buy that $150 tablet.
Steam: The Steam "Autumn Sale" will run from the 21st to the 27th, according to a recent blog post from the Secret of the Magic Crystals developer diary.
Xbox Live Marketplace: Major Nelson has provided an Excel document (very fancy), adorned with links to the product description of each game in the Xbox Live Marketplace. The offer runs until the 26th.
PSN: Several "Ultimate Edition" games (which include all free and paid DLC) will be up to 66% off, or 73% with a PlayStation Plus membership, through the end of the week.
