Black Friday 2013: A Hint of What’s to Come …

It’s obvious the holiday gift-giving season is upon us. Local stores went straight from Halloween decorations to tinsel and tree ornaments. That also means the annual mega-event known as Black Friday is right around the corner …

I can’t tell you much yet, but I can say we’re going to have one heck of a Black Friday Sale in 2013. There are new releases on sale, hot deals on favorites and an online community vote that'll give you the power to chop a video game's price to pocket change.

Battlefield 4. FIFA 14. SimCity. Madden 25. All the big names and familiar franchises will be getting some extra love in just a few short days from now. And that love will translate to games in your library and extra spending money for even more Black Friday deals.

Because I like being employed I can't tell you the exact deals. But hit the Origin store on Nov. 28 and you'll see exactly what we've been working on.One thing I can say: The Black Friday Sale on Origin is much more than just Black Friday. Hint, hint.

The goal is to make it so you're enjoying the spoils of Black Friday 2013 online … not wasting time in line. It's a much better way of spending the long weekend, that's for sure.
