FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - For all you Black Friday fanatics, get ready for changes this holiday season.

At Best Buy, it all starts with when the doors open. 12 AM Friday morning.

Story Simpson with Best Buy says, “Be here early. And there's a lot of great deals that will be outside of even what you might see in an ad. There will still be a great deal in store even if we don't have what you came for. So, even if you shop at one or two a.m., you didn't want to come at midnight, there will still be ton of great deals that you'll have available to you that you can shop for that day."

This year, Best Buy is also starting a new ticketing system. At 10 PM. They'll start at the front of the line of shoppers and pass out tickets redeemable for your favorite door-busters.

Simpson says, “It will be basically, first come first serve for a lot of those ticketed items. So, you'll have the ability to walk into a department and say, 'I've got this ticket. I know I'm going to be able to get one of these for Black Friday,' and you're already guaranteed that product. They're limited to what we have in store. There's none in the warehouse usually, because they ship them all to us. So it's very easy to, once you're in line, you're probably going to get what you're looking for that day as long as you are in the first couple hundred people."

That's good news for people who want to find this season's hottest high-tech gifts.

"Hot ticket items this year are going to be tablets, and then we have some great phone deals that are coming out. There will be a couple great tv issues that we'll have that will be in the ad as well," says Simpson.

Although tablets may be the biggest must-have item, you're sure to find a ticketed, door-buster that will please even the pickiest person.

There's probably about 50 different ticketed items. Different items like home theaters, X-Box and Playstation 3 consoles, cell phones, tablets and computers."

Why wait?

There are holiday deals already available at Best Buy and many more to come throughout the holiday season.
