Microsoft reveals plans for Xbox 360 Black Friday sales

Next week, many people in the US will be getting up early Friday morning, and in some cases going to stores on Thanksgiving night. The reason is, of course, Black Friday--the busiest shopping day of the year, where retailers try to jump-start the holiday shopping season.

Microsoft is not immune to Black Friday 2012. Today, the Major Nelson website has announced that Microsoft will have a number of special sales deals on Xbox 360 consoles and games for the time period.

For example: Walmart will have an exclusive glossy white Xbox 360 console, with a 4 GB hard drive, on sale during Black Friday for just $149.99. It will also come with Activision's Skylanders game and an exclusive Skylanders figure. Target, Amazon, Sam’s Club, Meijer, Kmart and Microsoft Stores will all offer the Xbox 360 4GB console with the Kinect add-on and the game Kinect Disneyland Adventures for $199.99 during Black Friday.

If you are a hardcore gamer, you might want to go to Best Buy, Fred Meyer, Fry’s or Newegg. They all will have will have Xbox 360 250GB consoles during Black Friday with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Forza 4: Essentials Edition, all for $199.99.

With a new box out next year, I don't know what they would expect for sales... Strange time to by an Xbox really...
They're still selling well and a lot of consumers have no idea that a next-gen console may be coming out next year.

It's actually the best time to buy if you're a value gamer... Games are so cheap right now and lots of options available that you can have a year or two of gaming for a fraction of the cost of people who bought new.. Nextgen will be out sometime next year, but its going to be pricey, short supply and fairly limited for another year or two after that while the titles start coming out.

With the Wii U launch on Sunday i dont see the point in buying a 360 when ya can just try and get a next gen system since sony and MSes next system may not be out till late next year if that we dont know but still not a good time to get a 360 really isant

WiiU is not a "next gen" system. WiiU brings Nintendo up to par with the 360 and PS3. No more.

Regardless... it's Nintendo's next gen system.
