The LA Times reports that a San Fernando resident shopping for games at a Walmart Black Friday sale was pepper-sprayed by what he called a “competitive shopper.” Matthew Lopez, 18, was attacked inside the store. By the time he got to the games section, the display was torn down and employees were having to pick up copies of games and DVDs that were scattered on the floor. Another customer said that screaming began when 100 people started shoving over Xbox 360s and Wiis.

Guess what happens next week? Yep. Black Friday. Lucky for us, or unlucky for us – it’s all in how you look at it – we’ll be on our second of three Thanksgiving dinners with family, and stuck inside a house full of food and spirits instead of braving the crowds stampeding for a deal. However, if you’re the brave sort, or just willing to go through anything to save a buck or twenty, Target and Sears have a few gaming-related sales going on you may be interested in, such as: new game releases for $37, console bundles, and older releases for cheap. Joystiq has the fliers and a rundown posted here and here. More Black Friday deals, specifically from Walmart, Microsoft, Best Buy, GameStop and Toys R Us, can be found through a previous post.
Valve should be getting in on the mix with a Steam sale soon, and we suggest you get your bank account padded ahead of time in preparation.
