The biggest shopping festival is approaching fast and people are getting ready for the once in a year opportunity. Many people are well prepared weeks in advance before the arrival of the annual shopping bonanza and they keep a tab on every development taking place in this regard. Black Friday is fast approaching and there are signs that this year too we are going to get huge deals from almost all the manufacturers and retailers.

Retailing companies, both big and small are making preparations, and even leaking deals, to lure the largest number of visitors. They have seen the number of footfalls going up substantially every year and this year they expect to do even better business and attract more people than the year 2012. And there are reasons to believe that the number of people will go up substantially this year compared to last year.

And to be true, electronic goods like tablets, smartphones and gaming consoles are going to be in the highest demand in this festival season like the last year. The sales of smartphones, tablets and gaming consoles will go up substantially as every retailer and even smartphone vendors will directly give huge discounts on these products.

In the meantime gaming fans would be very happy to know that GameStop has already leaked deals on Sony PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So this means that you are going to be plain lucky to get this deal even before the launch of consoles. A report in Examiner says that GameStop will have good quantity of both the consoles in its stock on Black Friday 2013. Sony’s much anticipated PlayStation 4 is set to be launched in markets on 15 November while Microsoft’s Xbox One will be launched a week later on 22 November. Meanwhile several games will get huge discounts including “Battlefield 4” to be available for $29.99, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for $39.99 and Call of Duty Ghosts for just $49.99. So things are looking very enticing for gaming fans.
