Gamestop's Black Friday 2013 ad leaks to the Web

Black Friday ads have been leaking very early this holiday season, and on Monday the Gamestop Black Friday 2013 ad reached the Internet, as reported by The Christian Post.

A number of items are getting a serious discount at the video game and electronics retailer. Among the specials on that day (ad scan linked in PDF form, here) are:

250GB PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 for $199.99: The PS3 is with "The Last of Us and Batman: Arkham Origins," while the Xbox 360 is bundled with "Halo 4" and a download code for "Tomb Raider."

There are exclusives, as well, including a Gamestop-exclusive Azure Blue 250GB PS3 bundled with the "Jak and Daxter Collection" for $249.99.

Other game deals will include a year of PlayStation Plus for $29.99, "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" (PS3) for $39.99, and "Dishonored" and "Splinter Cell: Blacklist" (both Xbox 360) at $24.99 each.

Gamestop will also run a buy-two-get-one (of equal or lesser value) free promotion on all pre-owned items and will add an additional 30-percent of in-store credit on all trade-ins.

"Battlefield 4" will also receive a Black Friday (only) discount from GameStop. The game's PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions will all get a 50 percent discount, making the game $29.99 on Black Friday. A similar GameStop promotion -- but not quite as good, at $39.99 -- run on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

"Battlefield 4" is set to have a $59.99 retail price upon its release on Oct. 29.

This is just one of the numerous Black Friday leaks already on the Internet. More -- including the gold standard -- Walmart -- are yet to come.
