$499.99 shipped when you apply coupon code

I've ever seen on a 4K TV, and therefore I must have
Well, okay, quick reality check. Let's take a look at some of the
pros and cons here.

Cancel your weekend plans. Come to think of it, cancel next
weekend's plans, too. You're about to score a boatload of top-rated
(and genuinely great) games for an embarrassingly low price. Your

your TV, you need an HDMI switch--which itself requires an HDMI

When Sprint announced a 7-inch Android tablet priced at
$99.99, my ears perked right up. After all, Amazon's Kindle
Fire and Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet cost twice as much, and
they're both just glorified e-readers.
The ZTE Optik is a much more versatile tablet, with features like
Bluetooth (for streaming music to compatible speakers and earbuds),
GPS (for navigation, natch), dual cameras, and, perhaps best of

In other words, unlike most tablets of its size, the Optik doesn't
rely solely on Wi-Fi for connectivity. It comes packing Sprint's
And there, as you've probably guessed, is the catch. Although the
hardware will run you a very reasonable $99.99, you can't get it
without signing a two-year service agreement. And Sprint's Tablet
Connection plans start at $19.99 per month.
As we dive headlong into the madness of Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the beginning of the that is the 2011 Holiday Shopping season, let's take a look at the biggest news to hit the video game world this week.

If you're familiar with Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when retailers slash prices, you may have also heard of Cyber Monday, the online version.
