Early deals for gamers.
Before Black Friday hits on Friday, November 25, Gamestop has announced that they will have some tempting Pre-Black Friday deals that will be available on November 22-23. Which means that they start today.
To start the event off, Gamestop has shaved off a good $50 off the 1TB Xbox One S system, as well as $20 off the Samsung Gear VR. This brings the 1TB Xbox One S to $250 and the Samsung Gear VR to $80. If you’re the owner of a samsung phone and looking for a cheap entry into the world of VR, this is your chance.
During the event, anyone can enjoy 50% extra credit when trading in items. Gamestop also included that anyone is eligible for “Free Value Shipping” on orders over $35. One would assume that this would be for online orders.
These, among others, are the Pre-Black Friday deals which start today. Make sure you catch them while they’re out. Gamestop’s actual Black Friday deals start November 25 and include many of these deals above, including Overwatch for $35 and the Xbox One S for $250 (you can also nab a PS4 for the same price). On Friday, Gamstop will also be offering a Buy Two Get One Free for all pre-ownded products. On the subject of trade credit, you will still get extra, but only 20% more instead of 50%.
For more about Gamestop, they recently announced earlier in the year that they will accept retro trade-ins and will sell them online. Be sure to visit Cube Command for more gaming news!
Just one month to go.
Nintendo recently dropped a trailer and new info on their upcoming mobile title, Super Mario Run. The game is set to release on December for iOS devices in 151 countries and regions. It is being made by an experienced team of developers, including the director Takashi Tezuka, who worked with Shigeru Miyamoto on the original 1985 classic Super Mario Bros.
Apparently, the first part of the game is free to download on any iPad, iPhone, or iTouch devices that run iOS 8.0 or any later versions. Once you try out the game’s three modes, you have the option to purchase the full version for $9.99.
You can check out the new trailer for Super Mario Run, which was uploaded today:
The game plays like you would expect from a modern Mario game, except with a few gameplay changes that come from being on a mobile device. Super Mario Run is an auto-runner, which you can play with one hand. Just tap the screen to make Mario jump while the level auto-scrolls. Do a quick tap to make the plumber hop and a long tap to make him jump higher.
If you don’t own an apple device, you may still be able to play it for yourself in the future. Nintendo has stated that it intends to put Super Mario Run on Android devices, too. They also stated that they plan to make Super Mario Run as popular as Pokemon GO. With the widespread popularity that the Mario franchise possesses, it may not be too hard to do.
