    Nothing hardware related as of yet (I am more of a cyber weekend watcher!)

    But so far I have bought 2 copies of Just Cause 3 on steam so I can play the free multiplayer mod with my friend. I think it was £4.49 for each copy, or somewhere in that region anyway, not bad at all.

    Amazon dropped it down to £50 and I had a £10 off £50 minimum spend voucher.

    If you want to keep a check on deals,you can have a look here:

    https://forums.hexus.net/retail-therapy-bargains/

    I posted that deal and a few others in that section.

    A new Samsonite suitcase to replace my 10+ year old one whose catches gave up the ghost. Might have been the entire PC and monitor I was shipping that did it....

    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Hacksaw Ridge 4k Blu-Ray - £13.33
    Logan 4k Blu-Ray - £13.81

    Thinking about the first 2 Apes films on 4k, but not really any cheaper than 2 for £30 at Zoom with Sign-up code...

    Edit: Already bought Bram Stoker's Dracula on 4k for £14.99 in the pre-BF deals, and GOTG2 and Van Helsing 4k on a 2 for £30.

    Black Friday is mostly a thing to make gullible people buy thing they don't need. Since I don't need anything at the moment I bought NOTHING!

    Nothing on black Friday. I bought a massively reduced factory refurbished telly in the wind up last weekend and an Asus RP-AC68U from Amazon warehouse deals when the 20% reduction went live.
