I was tempted by the sainsburys offer on right now but at £70 odd that seems a great deal!...
also i noticed that it stated "Over 60% off Microsoft Xbox consoles" :smashin:

I already have a ps3 though so guess a wii would be alittle more "different" - not going against the whole "ps move" thing because i would like that but anew console at £70 seems anice addition.

personally I dont believe it at all...I think its some sort of misleading advert (ie bundle with hugely inflated RRP) BUT I know the whole Black Friday thing is big in the US. Your way behind on this though, its been reported on websites for the last week or so



Amazon.co.uk: Black Friday Deals Week


What Is Black Friday?
Black Friday is the day that follows Thanksgiving in the USA; with Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November, this year Black Friday will be November 26. It traditionally marks the beginning of Christmas shopping, with shoppers grabbing some great prices on a huge range of products. Amazon.com offers some unbelievable deals throughout Thanksgiving week and on Black Friday, and this year, we wanted to do the same.

60% of a XBOX Console. Damn I might be tempted to get a slim at that price.

you just know that these offers wont happen for normal people who just want one, thanks to herberts buying loads to sell for profit and them selling out after 5mins.

If you can spend the next week in front of your keyboard mashing the refresh button you might just stand a chance but if not you've no got a hope in hell. Somebody will be lucky though...

Really when they say 60% of RRP is the RRP doubled?

For the life of me I can't see the Wii actually being 60% RRP off unless it's like 5 units they have just to get business in?

But anyhow i'm more interested in the Sony TV/Blu-ray however by the time I get home not much chance of any deals :(

Now is the time I wish i had a smartphone to spam at work.

I think that previous posters might be setting themselves up for a disappointment.

Keep in mind that Amazon calculate their discounts on the RRP. The RRP of the Wii is £179.99 and they sell it for £139.99, a saving of 22%. If they calculate the 60% discount off the RRP then the price should be around £110.

Previous posters have said that it should be £70/£80 but they're working that out as 60% on the already discounted £139.99 price.

thats a very good point...putting the prices up before the sale starts so 60 % off something that costs £200 (which is more than anywhere else in the first place is not such a good deal!

Do they announce all of the deals in advance like this or do they have some unannounced ones suddenly popping up too?
