A ton of great PS4 games have come out recently, and you can get a free $20 PSN gift card when you buy one from Walmart today. Options include Fallout 4, Battlefront, Black Ops III, and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, but head over to Walmart for the full list. [Choice of PS4 Game with Bonus $20 PSN Card, $60]
Clearly, there’s no need to wait for Black Friday to score a great deal on an Xbox One. If you really want Kinect (which is awesome for saying “Xbox, Pause,” but not a whole lot else), then the Amazon bundle is one of the best we’ve ever seen. Otherwise, the Walmart deal with an extra controller and game is really…
It isn’t hard to see why nothing bad has ever quite touched Kevin Johnson, mayor of Sacramento, Calif., even as he’s authored a long series of lurid sex and corruption scandals, any one of which would have ended the career of a less fortunate man.
Video game store horror stories are so plentiful I had to round up a whole new batch to share all the best ones readers sent in. There’s the typical stock of pre-order bullshit, but these stories span ridiculous levels of rudeness.

"Not a single store in Georgia has any," a local GameStop employee told me over the phone as I called about looking for the GameCube controller released with Super Smash Bros. Wii U. That's explains why the cheapest one on Amazon is $89.99, and why eBay prices are going through the roof.
Not content to wait around for Thanksgiving, Walmart has kicked off several of their best Black Friday deals early today. Our picks are below, but I suspect a lot of the best stuff will sell out early, so head over to their site to see the up-to-date list.
There's nothing like some good ol' fashioned corporation scamming on the holidays. And as we inch closer to Black Friday, some particularly ambitious shoppers have convinced the mega-chain Walmart to sell them PlayStation 4s for as cheap as $50 thanks to a simple new price-matching scam.
Walmart isn't waiting for Black Friday to kick off one of their best gaming deals; a Nintendo 2DS for $79.
