Target 4 day gaming sale
It's that time of the year when brick-and-mortar stores become entangled with out-of-control sales banners.

Big W is currently selling this bundle for $449.00.
PS4 500GB Slim and 3 months of Stan
Target's Christmas sales on video games and consoles are on the mark this year. As part of its mega-saleTarget will be selling the new look PlayStation 4 500GB at just $309.
With that extra cash floating about, you could do worse than treating yourself to additional Dualshock 4 controller which usually retail at $89.95 but are selling for $68 during the sale.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Another (terrible) year is nearly over. And, with the year drawing to a close, another Call of Duty game takes its place on gamers' and retailers' shelves.
The latest addition to the Call of Duty franchise takes players into space, have them piloting military space ships, whilst taking part in the standard Call of Duty experience. Once you are done with the single-player, you can jump into the extremely successful multiplayer.When you are sick of 12-year old children saying things about your mother, you can jump into the arcade-style zombie’s mode.
Dick Smith (yes, still a thing) are currently selling Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for $49.00.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
With the bombastic, large-scale shooters that have taken over the gaming industry, it is nice to have a game that isn’t afraid to get intimate.
Rainbow Six: Siege ditches the shooter large-scale industry staples in favour of a smaller, tighter, nd more intense style of gameplay. Gamers will get up close and personal with their enemy, carefully creep through each location, and alter the layout of the map in order to gain an advantage. This is a game about precision, tactics and patience.
Amazon is currently selling Rainbow Six: Siege for $27.95, which is a saving of $40.89.
Another month goes past, and Battleborn receives yet another price-drop. I am almost running out of clever things to say about this title.
Battleborn is a game that exists and was developed by the folks behind the Borderlands series and the terrible Alien: Colonial Marines (I want my money back, Randy). Players control a variety of different heroes in a MOBA-style game, which is nothing like Overwatch. The story of Battleborn is a sad one, because it's a good game that's absolutely worth playing. Unfortunately, it was just released way too close to the insanely popular Overwatch.
Ozgameshop is currently selling Battleborn for $20.20, which is a saving of $30.39.
Pokémon Sun and Moon
Sometimes, simplicity is good. I remember when I was a kid (oh god). Cheez TV was on television, the Star Wars prequels hadn’t been released, and there were only 151 Pokémon. Oh, how things have changed. Now, there is a Pokémon that is a literal bag of rubbish.
A few days ago, Pokémon Sun and Moon was released. And, like every release of a new Pokémon game, avid trainers scour the virtual land for rare and legendary Pokémon with the goal of becoming a Pokémon master.
Big W is currently selling Pokémon Sun and Moon for $46.00, which is about $10.00 cheaper than other retailers.
