Sony PlayStation 3 Bundle (Walmart)
Sony’s PlayStation 3 is turning five years old just before Black Friday. The device debuted at a whopping $600 — a price tag that allowed competitors Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Nintendo (PINK:NTDOY) get a damaging head start on the company with their respective Xbox and Wii. Today, the PlayStation 3 enjoys a strong audience and retails for $250.
Walmart is pushing the system hard this Black Friday, offering up the system, an extra controller, and the games Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Little Big Planet 2 for $199. Each game usually runs $60 and the extra controller goes for $55. A package that usually goes for $425 for just $199? That’s just the kind of crazy Black Friday deal that gets people into fights.
