    QOTW: What did you buy on Black Friday 2016?

    It's that time of year again. Did you pick-up any bargains or has the wallet been kept shut?

    An HTC Vive, a handful of very well-priced Christmas presents for other people.

    Oh, and Doom, The Witcher 3, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Ryse and Her Story, which were all on all-time lows and mostly funded by my revenue from selling trading cards.

    I'm mostly excited about the Vive though. Yep, definitely the Vive.

    Nothing technically.... although I did buy a logitech MX Master mouse on Tuesday under the 'black friday' banner.

    Realistically there was nothing out there that I thought was a must have bargain if I'm honest.

    I was looking for a 1 TB SSD to stick my games on but compromised for a Crucial MX300 750 GB SSD for £106 on Amazon.

    Hmm, £100 off is tempting; I have the weekend to think about it. Would be good just for Elite and ETS2.

    So far, just a few games off Steam. There hasn't been anything that I want on offer otherwise.

    I LOVE my Logitech MX ! It is simply amazing. Had it about 12m now, IIRC I paid 54 quid new off ebay.

    A laptop for someone's Xmas - not reduced in price (retailer already took £20 off earlier in the week) but an extra year on the guarantee, 3 years now in total, for no extra charge.

    Re: QOTW: What did you buy on Black Friday 2016?

    I bought The Witcher 3 last week??

    Family has tasked me with finding the bargains for them - so managed to find a decent deal on a CSC for them,and looking at some kitchen related stuff.

    The 750GB SSD was tempting but not much of a tech budget ATM!


    Those despicable Elk,stealing the pond weed!

    Yeah. I don't think it's going to get any better for a while now, and it's pretty much parity with a USD purchase pre-tax, which is rare. It may well be that the sterling rice increases at some point.

    Of course, if the next gen device is announced that might create some downwards pressure, but who knows when that will actually materialise.
