    Its interesting that Booktopia always seems to end its free delivery sales before Black Friday.

    Fallout 76 is 49 dollars on Amazon when not on sale (pre ordered mine for 49 when it released), ebay 62 dollars is a rip off.

    If you're looking for a cheaper PS4 or PS4 Pro, there's a couple deals on Amazon Au. $269 for the PS4 and $449 for the PS4 Pro which is the best I've seen for a while. Postage is free if you're a Prime member.

    Yesterday I wondered if Life Hacker has some sort of stake in Black Friday. I asked the author why Life Hackers articles were 1 in 3 about Black Friday.

    Life Hacker quickly removed my comment. Next it will be false news. I'm off to a better read on a non SMH site.

    Ban me LH

      probably because Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping events of the year, and that's what people are interested in reading about?

    I find all the black friday "deals" to be a little underwhelming. Nothing but an over-hyped and over-marketed excuse to mislead consumers that they're getting a good deal.

    Its worth checking out Fanatical before buying on Steam; not all Aussie prices are equal whether in a sale or regular pricing.
