by Hydro_PT at 01:59 • Comments (3)

One of them is Need For Speed: Most Wanted, which is on sale for 25$ (PC) or 30$ (PS3, Xbox 360). Other sales include Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Battlefield 3, and Command & Conquer Ultimate Edition.

For European costumers not used to the Black Friday, EA let an explanation: "Black Friday is a relatively new concept in Europe. It traditionally refers to the beginning of the Christmas shopping period and falls on the day after the American Thanksgiving day. On Black Friday, US retailers tend to open incredibly early and offer amazing sales deals for a limited time only."

The PC version of Most Wanted is on sale for 30€ in Europe (download-only).
