Black Friday 2012: The Best Deals on Video Game Systems

Video game systems are expensive and usually don’t come with very much, save for a single controller and one mildly exciting game. That’s why Black Friday deals on video games are always so popular: the sales usually feature bundle packages so that you get the most gaming bang for your buck.

As Skylanders games will be appearing on many a wish list this holiday season, video game bundles including that franchise will be especially popular. Also popular will be the Just Dance series. If you’re looking for deals on video game system bundles this Black Friday, check out our round-up below.
