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.

US retailer Walmart’s said that a price reduction of the 4Gb Xbox 360 and Kinect bundle from last week was a mere error, saying it was “mistakenly labeled as a rollback.” However, until either next Monday or while stock lasts, it will honour the reduction in price. Microsoft insisted that it was not the prologue to an official price-cut announcement, telling Joystiq that Walmart had “made an independent decision to implement this temporary price cut.”

According to a post over on CheapAssGamer, a source as told the site Walmart plans to drop the price of 3DS on August 9, which is three days before the official price drop goes into effect. Providing the information is true, it could presumably allow purchasers to download the 20 free downloadable games as part of the Ambassador’s Program because they would be purchasing the handhled before the price drop is official on August 11. Thanks, GameFront.
