If you’ve been holding off on buying our DS/3DS stickers or any other fine items from Attract Mode, today’s the day to buy them because the video game culture shop is offering free shipping on everything for U.S. customers!
Fangamer is running an identical promotion — for those outside the U.S., Canadian shipping is 50 percent off, and international is 25 percent off. Orders over $50 get a free keychain, and over $100 score a $20 gift card. The shop has lots of killer new products, too, like Mare Odomo’s Venusaur shirt and Zac Gorman’s Zelda print (above).
If you want a PS Vita, jump up on this deal immediately! Starting at 3PM ET, Amazon will have the white Vita + Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation bundle, a copy of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and a 90-day trial of PlayStation Plus (and therefore free Gravity Rush, Jet Set Radio, Uncharted, etc.) for $179.99.
Regular price for a PS Vita is STILL $250. This is the best deal until that silly MSRP changes. We should warn you that AC3: Liberation has a serious save corruption bug, but Ubisoft says a patch is on the way.
Speaking of deals, here’s a totally unrelated but still cool offer! Scribblenauts Unlimited for Wii U, which I super want to play after reading Eric’s review, is $50 ($10 off!). Oh, and don’t forget all the other Black Friday sales!

It’s a Black Friday miracle! GameStop’s sale circular reveals that the Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D 3DS bundle contains the special Zelda-themed 3DS announced for Europe — and not a normal Cosmo Black 3DS as previously thought!
GameStop is charging $199 for it, which I guess is a $10 savings over buying the game and the 3DS separately. But Best Buy’s going to have it for $179.99. I’m sure Amazon will have a similar price, and you won’t have to spend your entire Thanksgiving outside of a damn store with people ready to go full-on barbarian for a TV.
Limited edition Green and Orange DSi bundles with Mario Party DS, debuting in the U.S. this Friday for $149.99 (click for a larger image). The lime green color was previously limited to Japanese XLs, and I believe the orange model is a first for the handheld in any region!
Neither are as nice as the Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary DSi XL, but if you don’t care for the bigger screen size and would rather own Mario Party DS than an extra copy of Mario Kart DS, here’s your chance to get something nice for yourself in Green or Orange. I expect Amazon to begin offering the new bundles soon.
BLACK FRIDAY SALE
As one of their Black Friday “doorbusters,” Sears will sell DS Lite bundles featuring the elusive Ice Blue DS Lite and a Mario-emblazoned red DS Lite, both available in the US for the first time. If you really want to blow some money on a DS this November, but don’t want to buy a DSi, a nice soap-bar-esque Ice Blue DS Lite wouldn’t be a bad option.
I’m guessing these are the new holiday bundles for this year, like the Zelda gold and Nintendogs pink systems from last year, and not anything exclusive to Sears.
