Is black ops 2 going to be on sale anywhere for Black Friday?

Protip: When something goes on sale, it cuts into the retailer's profits, not the manufacturer.

Not true. Publishers routinely help to move inventory by aiding in retail promotions.

How about supporting the developer, and stop buying your damn games while they're on sale? Sales are killing gaming. I ONLY buy when full priced. Want to know why? Because I'm a smart consumer. Buy full priced, or don't buy at all.

To throw a little more on topic in this topic. Of the games that have been shown to be on sale for Black Friday Black Ops 2 is not one of them.

Modern Warfare 3 is on sale and is at the same sale price point as Dishonored, FIFA 13, XCOM,Need for Speed MW games that just come out around last month or so, and MW3 is over a year old at this point.

So if you missed NewEgg Pre-order for 48 dollars or BestBuy pre-order for 20 dollar credit. I'm not saying it wouldn't happen but looking at how much they like to hold out on the older Call of Duty games i don't think it well be on sale.

CoD games never go on sale in retail during Black Friday or the holidays. Your best bet is to find it online since online retailers might throw some deals. Either that, or you can use the promos that stores have like B2G1 or $10 gift card with purchase etc.


I'm pretty sure I remember World at War being on sale for like $35-$40 when it was released

Ofcourse this was before Call of Duty was shattering sales records after sales records like it is now

^ Totally agree, and I expect Ice is referring to CAG which have listings of all the BF sales. Your best bet for this game was as Ice said, with the pre-order deals. You could wait months to maybe save $5 more, but I don't see the point in that with an MP game like this. Better to get it near launch, for the best deal you can.

http://blackfriday.gottadeal.com/BlackFridaySales/Category/VideoGames - I don't see it but keep an eye on this page. However, I think most of the major ads are already out.

While i am not a huge fan of pre-ordering or Call of Duty the dealman inside of me has been keeping an eye on everything. I might even of taken a look if it was even 40 dollars on Black Friday (and that would even be a higher sale price then anything else on sale) but unfortunately like we have mentioned pre-order deals were the best for this game we will probably see for awhile.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/200847024970 - If you are looking for a sale, but better act fast if you want this. 85/150 sold when I saw it a minute ago.
