  • CrunchDeals: Good Walmart video game two-for deals

    Walmart has some pretty good video game deals going on right now. Available games are limited to certain titles, some better than others. For instance, there are 63 Wii titles to choose from but only 21 Xbox 360 titles. Games for the PS3 are nowhere to be found but there are two available PS2 bundles.

  • This is why I don't shop on Black Friday

     http://www.liveleak.com/e/f59_1227894726 Here is a prime example of America’s incessant spending habits. They were fighting over Wal-Mart’s Xbox 360 Arcade Guitar Hero 3 bundle for $199, BTW. Insane. No wonder there was fatalities yesterday. Read More

    Lady and gentlemen (get it, one lady?) I give you Walmart’s Black Friday ad, home of the $128 Blu-ray player and the $798 50-inch plasma TV. Notable deals include: Read More

  • Wal-Mart and Sam's Club to sell the iPhone 3g after Christmas

    It looks like the iPhone 3G is going to America’s favorite neighborhood store and warehouse retailer. The only thing is that Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club minions will not be pimping the Jesusphone ’till after the holidays – like December 28th. It seems that select locations will get the phone first but eventually, the phone will be rolled out till the entire 2,500 store… Read More

  • Wal-Mart to sell $128 Blu-ray player on Black Friday

    In the ultimate test to see whether or not Blu-ray is ready for mainstream adoption, Wal-Mart will be selling a Magnavox player for $128. If it creates stampedes like Wal-Mart’s $29 DVD player from 2003, we’ll know Blu-ray is here to stay. If people casually mosey over to the electronics department, glance at the tag, and head elsewhere, we’ll know that the… Read More

  • Wal-Mart to give more shelf space to Blu-ray, takes it away from CDs

    Wal-Mart is shoving CDs out of the way of Blu-ray movie titles as CD sales drop 23% over the first weeks of the holiday shopping season. Blu-ray movies however, might just be a hot ticket item as HDTVs are the only TVs you can buy now and some folks wanna hang on to physical media in their treasured collections. Plus, everyone from tweens to Generation X 35-year olds download music, legally… Read More

  • Screenshots of Walmart's New MP3-Only Store

    It looks like Walmart has soft-launched it’s DRM-free MP3 store. The company decided to ditch its DRM approach, but then got into hot water with consumers once they figured out that Walmart was going to be taking down the servers they used to manage all the DRM rights. No servers, meant that they wouldn’t be able to listen to the songs they had legally purchased. So Walmart had… Read More

  • Rumor: iPhone 3G to be sold at Wal-Mart next month

    According to BGR, Wal-Mart may be carrying the iPhone 3G starting on November 15th. Also noteworthy is that it doesn’t look like the iPhone will be sold at Radio Shack, as previously rumored. Now, I’ve never purchased a cell phone from Wal-Mart before but here’s to hoping the activation process will be relatively hassle free, as I don’t remember ever seeing anybody in… Read More

  • Wal*Mart pulling the plug on their music DRM Server

    6 months after Wal*Mart jumped onto the music peddling party bus back in August of 2007, they decided to make the switch to 100% DRM-free tracks. Awesome, right? Unfortunately, any music purchased during that 6-month window before the switch is still at the mercy of Wal*Mart; if they were to pull the plug on the DRM server, the files would become useless on anything but the computer… Read More
