While many of us in the United States are getting ready to sit down and enjoy their annual Thanksgiving feast, BlackBerry is kicking off the holiday weekend with what they are calling its biggest Black Friday sale ever for select apps, games, music, and movies in BlackBerry World. For a limited time, users can download some of their favorite and best-selling titles for as low as $0.99 (limited times and quantities available) without requiring a redemption code.  

The sale is available for BlackBerry 10 smartphones for North America and Latin America and will run from Friday, November 29 through Monday, December 2. Some of the big ones include Modern Combat 4, Mass Effect, Asphalt 7, Dead Space, and Need for Speed on the apps and games side. On the movies and music front, popular films and artists included are Jack Reacher, and Skyfall with albums by Kings of Leon, fun, and Lady Gaga.

The sale banner is live in BlackBerry World (a day early) so if you want to browse through all of the titles you may hit up the link below. If you've had your eye on any of these items, be sure to take advantage of this low price and grab them while you can. Please be aware though that while apps, games, and movies will be $0.99, music albums are at a discounted price.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Music...no. I have copied my downloads to many devices and they work just fine. File type mp3.

Nothing is free brother nothing

Posted from my ZED 30 jacked up on 10.2.1.1055 thank you very much!!

Why only some games for certain devices? I'm basically at the point where I'm ready to grab a Z30 but some apps I use aren't supported. Why!? Why a step backwards??

As a developer, I'll tell you what happened: since my app was already available for the z10, BlackBerry sent me an email saying it would automatically be supported for the z30 unless I went and changed it specifically. I guess some people did that.

Some devs haven't added Z30 to their list of supported devices. Example, out of the 13 or so EA games for the Z10, only 5 are available for my Z30 in BB World. But if you device switch with Link, the games will transfer over and work fine.

The newer releases all have Z30 supported, but some devs haven't gone back and updated their listing to add Z30 on older stuff.

Thanks for the reply. This is encouraging and enough to seal it. Seriously might place the order tonight through Rogers.

I'm loving my Z30. I put 10.2.1.1055 on it before transferring, which was the first leak I've ever done. Between that OS and the new Z30, it's been a pretty fantastic experience so far!

Browser stays blank and when I open the link through BB world, it says content not found. I'm in the very center of Latin America. This blows

Mass Effect, Dead Space and Need for Speed not available for Z30! Why, why, why!

And the list goes on.... cut the rope, chromasphere....

Top of the line BlackBerry with missing apps. I wonder if it has something to do with the 756 vs 720 resolution.

Still it's annoying...

Dead Space is.
Search it by name, or find an EA game like Real Racing, open overflow menu, and select More From Electronic Arts.

Thank you so much for making that post! Iron Man 3, The Croods, and After Earth are not displayed on the Thanksgiving Sale page. I purchased After Earth as I have not seen it yet.

Damn, all the apps I want (Monopoly, Yahtzee, and Life) aren't available on the Z30. Though I've been on the fence about 360 Panaorama, so that got purchased.

Maybe I will see if I can re-associate with my Z10, download the apps, then just wait for the Z30 update.

Downloaded jack reacher but can't get it on my ipod! BALLS!.......also, I'd like to point out that the only reason I have ONE apple product is because it's 160GB. don't judge me. :) HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

You can save movies & music from BB World to your media card.
Couple of those would be cheaper than an iPod. ;)

Download files are copy protected, will only play on the downloaded device. :-(
Tried moving a file to my Playbook and PC; but it will not play. At least my Z10 has HDMI out.

My reply was just about storage space, and that media can be put on your inserted micro sd card, up to 64GB.

It's country specific...I've been trying to get some of the movies since yesterday, but downloads kept stalling.

I bought bejeweled 2 and cartoon camera. I wish Mireo were on sale. Does anybody know the current price? Thanks.

My download speeds on 4 G or wifi tried two separate networks and slow as he//. Been downloading sky fall for 5 hours keeps crashing. Anyone else having this trouble?

Posted from my ZED 30 jacked up on 10.2.1.1055 thank you very much!!

I have a question about movies and music in BlackBerry World, are they just not available in some countries or am I being stupid and can't find them?

Aside from Brave. Wreck-It-Ralph, The Croods, Turbo, Epic and Finding Nemo are all. 99cents if you guys love Disney and Dreamworks animation!!!

As for regular movies they are: The Wolverine, Jack Reacher, Skyfall, The Way, Way Back, The Internship, The Heat, Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Pain & Gain, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Trance, X-Men Origins : Wolverine.

Sorry if I missed anything and sorry in advance if someone already posted these.

I would've loved to have had a 64g Playbook or else I'd be purchasing 90% of these movies!!! SMILE!!!

Bought 2 apps 360 panorama and photo studio pro, and neather of them are working!!!!!
Blackberry needs to pay attention to apps they sell, this is a let down for black friday morning! Come on blackberry!!!!
Using z30

Slightly out of topic....anyone who purchased Iron Man 3 for $.99 but couldn't download due to error...seems to be resolved now. Was able to download successfully last night. No repurchase necessary. Saw the "download" button and bazinga! Done. Hope it works for all those who purchased it but unable to do so initially

Went to buy Epic for $.99 and it lied....it was only a rental. it said rent it for $4.99 and buy for $.99. DONT BE FOOLED PEOPLE! Anyone else have this issue? I feel jipped :(

Oh man this deal was sooooo bad!!! It was so bad that I will need to buy a bigger SD card to continue with the downloads!!! I end up purchasing 11 movies total!!! 2 on my Playbook and 9 on my lovely Z10.

I do have a question. The 2 movies I bought for my Playbook (Brave n The Croods), I want to also have it on my Z10. But when I click on it using my Z10 it's still showing I have to pay 99cents. If I click on this will I get charge twice???

Hope everyone in the US of A had a safe and fun Thanksgiving!!!

I think for some odd reason you need to purchase them for both devices. These should be linked from your Blackberry ID so I am not sure what the problem is. It does seem others are having the same trouble.

I'm astounded by the selections available for 99c for the PlayBook. Lots of movies I wanted to see but never got around to. I broke my credit card (suspicious 99c activity?)
