Holiday season deals are making appearance long before the arrival of the ultimate sales season in the US. A number of deals are already in the public domain as retailers try to create excitement among shoppers well before the arrival of the season.

Reports suggest that with economy looking a lot better compared to previous years, the business on Holiday season is going to be far bigger than last year.

There is no doubt that you can expect huge discounts of electronic gadgets including smartphones, tablets and gaming consoles this year and we already have a few leaks for you. Among the offers being made, the Nintendo 3DS has grabbed the most exciting deal with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds packed with a custom gold colored version of the console will be offered for mere $219.99. On the other hand the 250GB PS3 is being packaged with The Last of Us and Batman: Arkham Origins, the game of the year runner for $199.99.

It may be recalled that PS3 saw a similar bundle released last year which became an instant rage and did not last long with the retailers. Running high on the thumping success of Skylanders franchise, Wii U latest, SWAP Force is being packed in with the console for $299.99.

However GameStop has refrained from offering discounts for any Playstation 4 or Xbox One consoles, games or accessories as these devices would be launched just before Black Friday. However it has come up with plans that offer a year’s PS Plus subscription at $29.99 as compared to the $49.99 and a 3-month Xbox LIVE Gold subscription for $14.99 which $10 less than the regular charges.  Game Stop will be offering the bundles of the three consoles along with the offers on the yet to be released consoles from midnight onwards on Nov. 29.
