Resistance 3 PS3 boxOh Amazon, your Black Friday 2011 sales will never cease. Actually, it’s only day two of its Black Friday week affair and I’m already tired of it. But that’s mainly because yesterday the site broke my heart by selling Fate/Extra for half of what I paid for it at GameStop. Alas, these things happen. Amazon’s doing to drive people even more crazy today by doubling the number of general games and accessories that are on sale, compared to what was offered yesterday, having a general Deal of the Day and seven sporatic Lightning Deals. Oh, that’s not even mentioning the random Resistance 3 bundle!

Let’s start with the Deal of the Day and custom bundle, since it’s really quick to go over both of them. Lego Rock Band for the PS3 is now $9.99. It’s normally $29.99. Also, today a copy of Resistance 3 (PS3) and the Move Sharp Shooter peripheral will cost you $69.99. Since Resistance 3 alone is $59.99 and the Sharp Shooter $39.99, it’s like you’re getting the controller add-on for $10.

Okay, that’s done. Now, for the Lightning Deals. If you’ve been here often enough, you know the drill. I list them with guesses, then update them with revealed information throughout the day. Let’s get started.

  • 11am PST: 4gb Xbox 360 Kinect bundle with $100 Amazon credit – $299.98
  • 12pm PST: Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection (PS3) – $24.99
  • 1pm PST: PES 2012 (PS3, Xbox 360) – $39.99
  • 2pm PST: Bleach: Soul Resurreccion (PS3) – $39.99
  • 3pm PST: The Fight: Lights Out (PS3) – $9.99
  • 4pm PST: SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy Seals (PS3) – $29.99
  • 5pm PST: MLB 12: The Show (PS3) – $19.99 – Note: This deal was added later in the day.
  • 5:15pm PST: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – (PS3, Xbox 360) – Note: This deal mysteriously disappeared from its 11am spot to its current 5:15pm spot.

I’d say the Xbox 360, Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection and Bleach: Soul Resurreccion are your best bets here.

Now, there’s one final sale area. That’s on the main Amazon Game Deals page. There are 54 items on sale there. I’m just going to list a few of the best of them, to give you an idea of you could be buying. Most of the sale items are accessories and peripherals this time around.

  • Air Flo Wired Controller (Xbox 360) – $25
  • Bulletstorm (PS3) – $17.99
  • Dead or Alive Dimensions (3DS) – $19.99
  • JASF (PS3, Xbox 360) – $29.99
  • Kung Fu Rider (PS3) – $9.99
  • No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise (PS3) – $19.99
  • The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces (Wii) – $14.96
  • St. Louis Rams Wireless Game Pad (PS3) – $12.99
  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition (3DS) – $17.99
  • Warhammer 40k: Space Marine (Windows) – $24.99

If you scroll down a bit on the page, you’ll also see that over 150 direct download PC games on Amazon are up to 50% off as well.

Finally, Amazon’s announced it’s theme for tomorrow’s sale games. It’ll be family friendly games. So keep that in mind, when deciding if you want to visit the site or not tomorrow.
