Black Friday is shaping up to be another crazy day of fighting for dear life bumping elbows with wacko shoppers eager customers waiting in line in the wee hours of the morning to find the hottest holiday deals (even though even better deals usually come along later on).

Sony has a solid selection of bundles on the way. And Nintendo will be giving away Wii Us and free New Super Mario Bros. U copies at Old Navy stores. Now Microsoft is joining the Black Friday party with a spectacular selection of bundles and game discounts to look forward to.
