I never went black friday shopping before. I normally would not today, but my Xbox 360 just so happen to break today.... ON THANSKGIVING !!!
So I see this deal at Best Buy to pay $199.99 and get an Xbox Slim version with a 250 GB Hard drive, microphone and controller, 2 games, and 3-month gold membership.
My friend is taking me there. I'm just wondering, what is Black Friday Shopping like and what are my chances of getting this Xbox if there are 12??
Note most people already own current generation console gaming systems, but some people do not. How early should me and my friend get in line?
A lot of people are out to buy TVs and Computers.
I avoid the stores like the plague today! Besides, I'm too busy cooking! If Best Buy only had 12 for sale, they are probably all gone by now, don't you think?
You are probably too late, some people camp out at Best Buys.
If you miss it, there's always cyber monday, without the crowds.
I don't go shopping on Black Friday. I went one year and swore I would never do it again. Some people love it. Good luck!

it will be horrible tomorrow inthe stores but can't wait to go shopping.You are right about some people camping out. I don't know if I want an item that bad.
I've never been either (we're in the same boat, haha) but I'd imagine it's going to suck... if there are 12, I'd think that people would still buy them for the cheap prices, and hoard them until Christmas to sell them on eBay to desperate parents looking to get one for their kids at an insane price.
If you do go, then... good luck, and try not to get your legs broken.
In other news, I cannot wait to see the crazy Black Friday fights on Youtube after tomorrow!
Brave souls are those who venture out on black Friday.
If you don't make it back I shall write an epic poem in your honor.
I wouldn't sweat that Xbox deal as Microsoft sets the prices and there is no shortage of supply this year. I suspect they will have that deal until christmas and probably past then as well. They had similar deals last year and throughout the fall they were giving Xboxs away with a purchase of a 600$ laptop.
If you do get one though let me know your gamertag and we can play some MW3 tonight.
Also try to get trampled with dignity, as stated above you might be on YouTube.
Think of it as a challenge. Go for it! I may go to Target at midnight tonight -- just to say I did it!
"Why Black Friday is the best day of the year to buy a car"

Applicability here is a long shot, but you never know...
...i'm a virgin too...i noticed this year Canada has adopted the 'black friday shopping' thing...copycats!...anything to get people to spend money...i won't be going
Black -- because for many merchants, it is their first time "Out of the red" for the year . . . Chance to move from deficits to profits!!
I love the crazed Target commercial lady!! Have you seen the commercials?
I hope David made it out in one piece.
People act psychotic at those black Friday stores.
All for stuff they don't even need.
Yes I did! I was with 3 other friends and we went to Best Buy and there was a HUGE line! There was like over hundred people standing in line ahead of us and more behind us eventually!!
The line was going the whole way up the hill beside best buy!
I was thinking to myself "there is no way in hell I am getting an xbox." There is only 12, according to the catalog.
We waited about an hour, but the second I got in, BOOM, Xbox for 199.99 with all the other stuff with it was near the entrance!
I think there were more xboxs than the ad said there was. It was pretty crazy though. Best Buy only let so many people in at a time.
I tell you what, my feet and back were killing me, though. But I did manage to get the deal!
The only bad thing about it is that I think I got dehydrated next day. Went to the gym and felt light-headed and threw up.
It was so cold waiting in line, but it was extremly hot inside best buy and I got really hot - and did not have anything to drink for hours (and the whole day really)
Next time I am going to carry water or something. I had some in my friends car, but did not want to hold/carry it for a long time..

I've seen a lot of hubs on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and I've done several myself. I actually had it flagged because it was categorized wrong. I think that brings up the issue that we don't have a specific hubtopic for holiday shopping deals or Black Friday, etc...I tried putting the hub under...

So now that the holiday buying has kicked in I'm looking forward to my Amazon stats. Of course today I see they are late getting updated!
