    With a bit of luck the rest of the world will have similar deals... I'm hoping I can pick up a good black friday deal on a Wii U in the UK - preferrably a premium with a physical copy of MK8.

    I really hope they go ahead and do Splatoon on the eShop for 25. I'm no where near filling up my hard drive because I can get games cheaper in physical than digital. It pisses me off because Id rather have all my games in digital format. WTF Nintendo?!

    Splatoon for $25 US makes me wonder why I spent $70 CAN for it in the first place. :glare:

    Splatoon looks like the best deal here.

    I'm thinking of getting the Nathan Drake Collection PS4 bundle for $300 which comes with a $50 giftcard. Will probably use half of those funds for Splatoon and the other half for... I'm not sure yet! Maybe The Witcher 3.

    All old 3DSes come with a firmware of 9.2 or lower, unless they've started to poop out more.
