Original story: Amazon's Black Friday sale is open to UK shoppers this week.

The Black Friday Lightning deals exist for around two hours and in limited quantities. There's a carousel on the Amazon website that previews upcoming sale products, although the price isn't revealed until the sale begins.

Driver Renegade on 3DS is currently on sale for £14.97. There are two more unnamed deals to come. The clue for the next one, which goes live shortly before 5pm, is, "So good they named him twice."

The clue for the third of today's video game deals, which goes live at around 6.30pm, is, "Every choice has a consequence; determine your destiny."

What are they? Is the latter X-men Destiny, as suggested by you clever people below?

Last year, Amazon slashed the price of Wii and Xbox 360 consoles to £50.

Black Friday, which follows Thanksgiving Thursday, marks the opening of the festive shopping season in the US. Shops take the opportunity to offer huge sales, prompting shopper mayhem. It's a bit like the Boxing Day sale in the UK, only on a much larger scale.

Unrelated to Black Friday is Amazon's tempting Xbox 360 deal, which gifts Halo: Combat Evolved - Anniversary and a year's membership to Xbox Live for free when buying one of four Xbox 360 consoles.
