Walmart is getting aggressive with its Black Friday deals, which will last throughout the month.

Beginning today (Friday, Nov. 6), is offering the 'Season’s Best Online Specials:' ten brand new online specials every single day for the rest of the holiday shopping season," the company announced.

"These daily online specials are special buys and rollbacks, which means the price is discounted for at least 90 days while supplies last. No highs-and-lows, no gimmicks, no subscription fees. Walmart is committed to making shopping easier every day  — not just one day — for customers this holiday season."

Today's deals aren't bad, but you'll likely see better soon. Here's what Walmart is offering in the gaming space:

  • PlayStation 4 Call Of Duty III Limited Edition Bundle with Madden or FIFA 16 Game for $429 + Free shipping
  • Xbox One 1TB FIFA 16 Limited Edition Bundle (with headset and controller) for $399 + Free shipping
  • Nintendo 3DS Handheld Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer Bundle for $199 (was $219) + Free shipping

You can check out the deals, and the rest of them coming this month, at the Daily Savings Center link.

Our thoughts? You can pick up the Call of Duty console bundle for the same price at GameStop right now, but Walmart is throwing in a free game. That may or may not be interesting to you, depending on how you feel about Madden or FIFA. But keep in mind other retailers are offering your choice of game if you buy this weekend.

The Xbox One deal is also OK, but keep in mind GameStop is also offering a free controller with systems, and you're locked into getting FIFA with your console with this deal. The draw here is the free headset, which is around a $50 value.

You can expect better deals as we get closer to Black Friday, but Walmart's plan to keep each deal for 90 days or until they're sold out is pretty friendly for buyers, so they get points there.
