At the moment, it’s slim-pickings on the deals page, with the best-selling deal being a Dualshock 3 controller for $39 or the Official PS3 Bluetooth Headset for only $23. However, if Amazon’s Black Friday deals are anything like last year’s you’re going to want to bookmark this page and keep checking back again and again because the savings are going to be big.
Still, it’s good to see that the world’s largest online retailer is already planning for Black Friday. You should be too. Look out for more Black Friday deals leading up to the big day, here on PSLS.

Earlier the sales were are 7.3 million units and it looks like the game has sold 1.5 million more approximately, to hit 9 million units. It is still lower than the PS2 versions, mind.
Gran Turismo 3 remains the highest selling game, followed by Gran Turismo 4. The series’ influence in the United States has declined a lot and majority of sales have been from Europe, but still considering the PS3 install base, this is a massive achievement.
The game is the lowest scoring GT game too, averaging at 84 on Metacritic. Polyphony has hinted about Gran Turismo 6 previously and we are not sure whether it will be released for the PS3.
It sold 2 million in the US and 5.5 million in the EU. That’s quite a difference compared to Gran Turismo 3.
Here are the complete series stats:

Not really. Asked why the game is so popular with these dern whippersnappers, one guy pipes right up with a smile. “You probably have the most opportunity to kill and [censored] up the most things,” he says.
“Years ago, we had a game called Battleship,” another gentleman says—very earnestly—right after that. “And it was very competitive. And we had five or six guys participate. What’s changed?” You know, he has a point. We’d get into fights and call each other all kinds of nasty words over Battleship all the time.
Three of them say they’d be willing to try it. All of them say they’d be killed instantaneously upon joining a multiplayer session (the most optimistic guess was “20 seconds,” from one of the women.”
Why not? “Looks like fun,” says one old timer. “Not for me,” says another woman, but she’s smiling as she says it. “I don’t understand the violence, I don’t get it,” says another woman, but again, her tone doesn’t suggest that someone else is wrong for getting it.
Finally, “Whee!” says the Battleship aficionado. That might be the best reaction of all of them.

From the press release -
Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), today announced that for the fourth consecutive year, the Call of Duty® franchise has delivered the biggest entertainment launch of the year. The highly-anticipated Call of Duty®: Black Ops II has achieved an estimated sell-through of more than $500 million worldwide in the first 24 hours of its release, according to Chart-Track, retail customer sell-through information and internal company estimates.
“With first day sales of over half a billion dollars worldwide, we believe Call of Duty is the biggest entertainment launch of the year for the fourth year in a row,” said Bobby Kotick, CEO, Activision Blizzard, Inc. “Life-to-date sales for the Call of Duty franchise have exceeded worldwide theatrical box office receipts for “Harry Potter” and “Star Wars,” the two most successful movie franchises of all time. Given the challenged macro-economic environment, we remain cautious about the balance of 2012 and 2013.”
On November 13, 2012, millions of fans attended more than 16,000 midnight openings at retail stores worldwide. Reflecting the wave of excitement that swept the globe, Call of Duty: Black Ops II drove social conversation in its first 24 hours as it was a top trending topic globally on Twitter in 23 cities worldwide. Additionally, there have been more than 30 million YouTube video views of the game’s live-action ‘Surprise’ launch trailer since its release on October 29, 2012.
“Call of Duty has become more than a product people buy, it’s become a brand people buy into. And every November we do more than just launch a game, we kick off an annual, unofficial but worldwide phenomenon called Call of Duty season,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. ”I want to thank our incredible team at Treyarch for making an amazing game, everyone at Activision for making this brand a force of nature and our retail partners for their unprecedented support of this franchise. But most importantly I want to thank our millions of fans for their continued support and loyalty and for making us better every day.”

Glitch is a twenty-something game tester who is going through the usual quarterlife crisis when he makes a wish that his life was more like a video game.
According to the team, the first season of Glitch consists of six full-length episodes, plus more than 20 “bonus life” mini-sodes, conversational comedic riffs on everything from violence in games to ironic convention goers. The episodes were filmed earlier this year and the season finale will be released this Monday, November 19th.

6) People Don’t Care About the Free Stuff that You Actually Do Give Away
If you’re unclear on what I’m referring to, some education is in store. In a way of celebrating 10 years of Xbox Live, Microsoft decided to manufacture some extremely limited edition consoles to ship out to its most dedicated fans that have been there from the very beginning. Explain to me how this makes sense. If they have been fans since the beginning and are still members, why are you sending them a console they already own? I’m sure those gamers would have been much happier with something like a lifetime Gold membership, or at least a few free years…but that would be more lost money for Micro$oft so we can’t have that!
5) Lack of Automated Updates
In a way to combat the connection inefficiencies, Sony offers automatic game update downloads and patching for your installed software. This is a great feature that cuts down on time spent not playing games. Basically, you set up a time for your PS3 to kick on and check for updates. This isn’t a major plus or minus on either side, but it is a sign of where M$ priorities lie in the issue of making wallets happy vs. making customers happy.
4) Demos vs. Game Trials
You might ask yourself “How are game trials better and/or different than a game demo?” Well class, thanks for asking, there are a few reasons! First, it is the final game itself, not a demo build of the game that is likely unfinished. Second, it lets you see how the game actually starts and whether or not you would enjoy the core game itself. Finally, a demo is a pre-constructed preview of the game that often is too short, and is even more often, not representative of the final product. 1-hour game trials let you play the actual game and see if you like it…for free. Xbox Live only has demos, PS Plus has both.
