Black Friday Sales


#1

Will there be any sales on TE sticks or any other brands this year? I just converted to a 360 from a PS3 and I’m in a dying need for a pair.


#2

Do you know your way around a soldering iron? It’d ultimately be cheaper to dual mod if you already have 360 sticks.

On the subject of Black Friday, I’m really hoping Newegg or someone has a sale on the Asus VH236H or VH238H Monitors. I want to get a couple. If anyone comes across any deals please post them here.


#3

if you have 360TE pick a MC Cthulhu and IMP V2 and WIN


#4

We should come up with a list of known, fighting game related, black friday deals.


#5

To my knowledge there aren’t any…


#6

i got a email form newegg the asus 's were on sale for $150 or so

only deals I know of lately are the pdp fight pads dropped another $10 so now there $20


#7

The Asus monitor that was on sale apparently isn’t even good for gaming though.

Edit: I may have been off. Perhaps it was the response time that they said was not suitable for gamers. I can’t seem to find any solid input lag tests for it.


#8

have a code for **VS247H-P ** for $159 free shipping


#9

Unless we can confirm that screen is good for fighting games is it doing anyone a favor to post it?


#10

keep this link handy:


#11

Did Madcatz have a sale last year for fight sticks?


#12

I kinda figured the Hori Sticks would see Amazon deals this season. That’s how I got my HRAP3 SA. I think the price could still go lower before the end of the year though.


#13

Or he could just get a Kitty TE or a TEasy Strike, not worry about any soldering, and have it up and running in around 30 mins.


#14

Excuse my ignorance, but what difference does a monitor make in the long run? I have a 22" HP that’s almost 3 years old and I do fine in SF when it’s hooked up to it. I play just as fine on that as I do my 46" Samsung. I never heard of somebody blaming a monitor for their loss before lol, at least seriously.

On a side note, I also play the same on a 12 year old crap-ass CRT television as I do on my more modern counterparts. I don’t mean to troll or anything, I’m just curious as to why such a thing should matter.

I’m assuming it has something to do with the refresh rate or response time or whatever, but is that big of a deal? I just want a cheap ass monitor in the 24 - 27" ranges :stuck_out_tongue:


#15

I was hoping for a BOGO free sale from the Gameshark store. It seems all the sticks are out of stock though so I kind of don’t expect any BOGO free sales this year :frowning:


#16

Same here. Scourging around to see best buy and Fry’s to get any deals for those monitors. I’m willing to settle if a monitor of similar performance is on sale, I just don’t know which ones are comparable in lag :\


#17

I believe that Staples will have a 1080p 23" monitor for $99 but I don’t think there’s any lag tests for it.


#18

I used to be an in-store tech for Staples. They’ll have 3 maybe 4 in the actual store. They bait and switch like you wouldn’t believe. Same with the website orders. I’m sure it says “while supplies last” in fine print somewhere.


#19

Yeah, I’m counting on Amazon and more than likely Newegg.com to have a deal on the VH236H or VH238H. I may still try to go to Staples to get one of those $40 office chairs, what do you think the chances of them actually having enough are?
