Black Friday off to an Early Start

Damn it Feels Good to be a Gamer...

Well now that Halloween is over, the race to the holidays are on, and if you are a gamer or know a gamer it's the best time of the year.  Besides the obvious list of amazing content being released in the next month, gaming sales will be rampant.  Microsoft have sent out the first shots by discounting all Xbox bundles $50 to $349 for the Sunset Overdrive bundle, and the Assassin Creed bundle while the Call of duty bundle will be $449 since it has a 1 TB hard drive upgrade.  This is huge seeing as in less than a year the Xbox one has seen a $100 price cut thanks to the loss of kinect and the $50 price break.  I can only imagine that Black Friday will see even more value as retailers fight for gamers hard earned cash.  

In fact Dell has already seen its black Friday ad leaked with two deals for gamers.  The first sees even more discount to the Xbox showing that the system will sell for $329.99.  While also showing an unannounced PS4 bundle that includes both GTAV and The Last of Us.  With that said, Dell is not known for its amazing black Friday ads making many assume that Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon, and Target may be lining up even better deals.

So if your a gamer or will be getting a gift for one, this is the best time of the year to get them that next gen system.  Fan boy arguments aside, the heated competition between Sony and Microsoft have created an amazing pricing level to these systems as each one fights to take hold of the market.  This competition only benefits gamers everywhere and should make every gamer excited for the future.  Gamer overall has seen a huge jump that no one predicted making this one of the best times ever to be a gamer.

Quest for Platinum Updated

I finally got an update to my race for plat, As I have platinum'd 3 more games since the last update.  I also updated the current plats being worked on legitimately with Batman Arkham Asylum and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.  Batman should be done as I am almost done with he story and only have the fun combat challenges to go.  If you just got this game for free with PlayStation plus, go play it and play it on hard!  It is a ton of fun and not too difficult.  As for COD, I pick that up today and it seems like an easier plat than most games, so I look forward to working on that one!
