GameStop Black Friday ads leaked way early, include Zelda-themed 3DS XL bundle, PS4, Xbox One deals – rumor
It’s not even Halloween yet, and already GameStop has printed out its Black Friday deals ahead of time. We’re not sure how BFads got its hands on the ad, but it is what it is. If you look over the ads you will also see PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are part of the Black Friday deals along with games for both systems. It also shows a 3DS bundle featuring the Zelda-themed 3DS XL with a copy of A Link Between Worlds which was previously announced for Europe only. Likely this is just a preliminary ad for internal use only, as DriveClub is still listed on there, and we all know, it has been delayed. Still, take this as rumor for now until November 22 gets closer. Thanks, ffronw.

Monster Hunter 4 was once again the top selling software title in Japan for the week ending October 6. It was a rather uneventful period, actually, with the only debut was Namco Bandai’s SPEC: Ten for 3DS and the only hardware to show growth over the prior week was Wii with 914 units compared 866 units previously. A Wii title didn’t crack the top 20 in software so we’re unsure what causes the slight spike.
Get the full software and hardware charts below.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is out in October for 3DS, DS, PC, PS3, Vita, Wii, Wii U and Xbox 360 as well as in November for PS4 and Xbox One.
