The PS3 deal on Saturday is for 10 movies in the store. There are very specific instructions we have to follow when getting the customers the free titles (the company is getting some kind of credit and to ensure the proper credit all 10 titles have to be purchased in the same transacition, immediately after the PS3, and they are price overidden to $0.00. Stores are getting additional quantities of titles for this promotion. Our store has received a half pallet shipper of Blue Ray movies and we currently have 14
PS3's on hand.
We should have at least 29 titles on-hand because a pricing file has just dropped for black friday on blue ray movies (I personally believe it will be one of the secret items for friday although I cannot verify this). The following Blue Ray titles will all be $14.96 on black friday (the reason I believe it will be one of the secret items is because this is the same price our HD-DVD titles were on the pre-black friday sale earlier this month).
Blue Ray Titles for $14.96 at Wal-Mart on Black Friday:
Night at the Museum
Final Fan Spirit
Tears of the Sun
Resident Evil 2
Black Hawk Down
One other piece of pure speculation on my part is that one of the secret items on black friday will be a Blue Ray Disc Player (Sony BDP-S300). I feel pretty strongly that these BD movies will be one of the secret items based on the price point and the pre-black friday sales on HD-DVD's at the exact same price point. That previous sale included both the HD-DVD titles and an HD-DVD player. In the past 5 weeks our store has sold one BDP-S300, we have just received 4 of these players and have 12 more showing on the way. For an item that we have have had one unit sold in 5 weeks, to have 16 in the store with no advertising or sales events does not make sense. Knowing that we will be having the BD titles on sale BF, having all of the BD players on-hand, it makes sense to me that they would be the secret items, but it is all speculation at this point. Maybe we will know more tomorrow.
