Buyer Beware

This holiday season is going to be an expensive one. Why? Because we have two brand new systems this year. Sony just released the PlayStation 4 not even two days ago and the XBox One will release in about a week. Chances are either one (or both) of these systems are going to be on most Christmas lists. However, no retail is having any sort of sale or promotion for either system or their accessories and games. Some ads will have the systems and games listed in them but do not be fooled. The full retail price of the PlayStation 4 is $399.99 while the XBox One is $499.99, and none of these ads are marking them down. It is a normal scheme to make you think they are on sale since they are listed in an ad. With that being said, the retailers that have these systems listed are stores that are guaranteeing that they will have limited quantities in stock on Black Friday. So if you are out looking for one, be sure to stop by any of those stores. Just keep in mind that they are not on sale.

So let’s say you cannot afford one of the brand spanking new systems…Rest assure that there are some very good bundles on the last generation systems this season. The PlayStation 3 holiday bundle is fantastic for anyone in the need of a PlayStation 3. It is the newest, slimmest model even though the ad pictures show the normal slim PlayStation 3. The internal 250gig harddrive will give users more than enough room to download and install games without worrying about their memory space being eaten up quickly. You also get two great games that will cater to anyone’s interest. As for the XBox360…Things are a bit dryer. A few retailers are clearing out the remaining systems with Kinect cameras bundled with them. I would highly suggest either the GameStop bundle or the Best Buy bundle if you are in the market for a XBox360. Why? Because both bundles include an internal 250gig harddrive and also come with games that your gamer will actually play.

Outside of gaming, tablets and cell phones are becoming popular gifts. Both Android and iTune users are in luck this year as Samsung and Apple have released new tablets this year. The Tab 3 and iPad Air are available at retail locations and through multiple carriers. These tablets do support carrier data plans meaning that you can have them connected to the internet 24/7 with your cell phone service. Speaking of cell phones…We have new models of those, too! The iPhone 5C and 5S are sweeping the nation. The main different between the two is the color selection, case material, and a few tweaks to the features of the phone. Samsung also released the new Note 3 this October as well; they also introduced the Samsung Gear which is a watch-like device that syncs to your Note 3 thus allowing you to check messages and make calls from your wrist. A few retailers have the Note 3 on sale, but nothing has been mentioned about the Gear. Do keep in mind though that most of these phone purchases require you to sign up or extend your contract. So think carefully before getting one of these as a gift!

The other reoccurring trend is centered around the summer blockbusters that are now hitting DVD and Blu-ray. Whether you are looking at picking up Pacific Rim, Star Trek: Into Darkness, or World War Z…Almost every big retailer has them available for around $10.
