Best Buy’s 2012 Black Friday circular ad is loaded with intriguing home entertainment deals designed to compete with Target, Walmart, Toys R Us and other retailers eagerly anticipating shoppers lining for deals shortly after Thanksgiving dinner goes down the gullet. I have picked through the ad and partitioned out the Blu-rays, video games and tech deals that fall under home entertainment.
Doorbuster deal hunters will find a Toshiba Blu-ray player for $39.99, on part with a similar player and price that will appear at Walmart. Also falling under doorbusters is a 40″ Toshiba LDC HDTV for $179.99, The Hunger Games Blu-ray for $8.99, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet for $179.99.

Newish release titles Epic Mickey 2 for Wii, Medal of Honor: Warfighter for Xbox 360 or PS3, The Amazing Spider-Man for Xbox 360 or PS3, Need for Speed Most Wanted for Xbox 360 or PS3, and Darksiders II for, you guessed it, Xbox 360 or PS3, are all on sale for $29.99.
Digging deeper in the ad reveals over 50 Blu-rays priced at $3.99 including Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Jr., both Kill Bill films, Iron Man 2, Pulp Fiction, The Crow and more.
