Steam deals are live! No more flash sales, everything is just on sale now for the entire duration.

http://store.steampowered.com/

And everyone should be playing Life is Strange or Ori and the Blind Forest

Did the Autumn sale (or whatever it is they call this one) ever have daily deals or flash sales? I can't remember.

Guess the site is being hammered at the moment. I can't get to my wishlist! #firstworldproblems

Another poster was spot-on saying that all these limited-time online flash sales during Black Friday week have managed to make online shopping more of a hassle than fighting the in-store crowds. Well done Steam.

Uh, define "up." Just like the movie calendar, it's sluggish as hell on Firefox and a little bit better on Google Chrome.

Seems snappy to me in Chrome on my PC, iPhone, and fairly ancient iPad.

Working fine for me. Wish they would tell you the prices ahead of time though. I don't want to try to hover around a computer for a shit deal.

Until Dawn is on there. So even if Best Buy ends up taking it down, maybe Amazon will still end up price matching it.

The calendar now works perfectly on Google Chrome, but it's still sluggish on Firefox. No big deal - I'm not interested in anything they're selling at the moment.

It's Amazon, so it'll be whatever Gamestop/Walmart/Best Buy have in their Black Friday ads. Search bfads.net for any game you're interested in, and that's what the sale price at Amazon will be.

I miss the Amazon that was once an aggressive price leader. They're even worse than followers now; you can get the same games at the same prices at other retailers all weekend, while Amazon duplicates those prices and hides 'em behind Lightning Deals and ridiculously low quantities.

They should be your local time. FWIW, I'm on the East coast, and this is what I'm seeing:

Should I get Yoshi's Woolly World by itself at Best Buy earning points with Gamer's Club Unlocked or get the amiibo bundle cheaper somewhere else? Not sure which would benefit me financially in the long run.

Probably a price mistake, so act fast. Batman Arkham Knight Premium Edition PS4 (comes with the season pass), is $16.94 on Amazon right now. You can also use code L1L2R1R2 for 10% off.

MS store sale is also live. Forza controller is $40. That Halo 5 statue is half off, so $125. They also have some download codes on sale, like Rare Replay for $20 and Mad Max for $25.

Yep, I figured it wasn't going to be around long at that price.

I really wish they'd off a digital code for ES Online. Hoping xbox one has a deal on it.
