The Toys “R” Us 2011 Black Friday ad is online via Facebook, a suitable substitute for Toyrsus.com which has been slammed with traffic tonight and has gone down on multiple occasions. We’re going to focus on the home entertainment portion of the ad, in which there are quite a few deals to be had tonight and into tomorrow.
Let’s start with Skylanders since Toys “R” Us seems to be the official home for the Activision game and toys. For Black Friday, all Skylanders characters and three-packs are buy one, get one free. If you buy two Skylanders single figures, you would only be paying $4 each. That’s the cheapest price around. In addition, the Skylanders starter packs that include the game, three figures and Portal of Power for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii or 3DS are $20 off.
Many of the Nintendo DS games priced around $15 to $20 are included in a buy one, get one free sale. Examples include Lego Batman, Lego Harry Potter, and X-Men: Destiny, to name a few.
The Xbox 360 4GB bundle with Kinect will be on sale for $199.99 and include a $10 gift card. Separately, Kinect will be on sale for $99.99 or $50 less than its typical $150 price tag. Even at the Kinect sale price, the bundle deal gets you an Xbox 360 console for $90 taking the gift card into consideration.
Playstation 3 has a bundle of its own and it’s sure to fly off shelves. The $199.99 bundle includes a 160GB PS3 console, a free extra wired controller, and two games: Ratchet & Clank: All For One and LittleBigPlanet 2. The PSP 3000 Core will be on sale for $99.99.
On the Nintendo side is the new Super Mario 3D Land, as well as a Super Mario Bobblehead Stylus and a Flame Red 3DS, for $189.99. The Zelda 3DS bundle is not listed in the Black Friday circular, nor does it appear on the Toysrus.com website.
Last but not least, Toys “R” Us has created a group of 24 video games and is offering a buy one, get one for $5 deal with them. Most are recent releases like Rage, Battlefield 3 and Gears of War 3.
