Ass Creed Brotherhood CE - $25
KZ3 Helghast - $50

Couple other crappy ones...


Anyway, felt this deserved its own thread because I think some of these prices just occurred as the people there kept commenting how they were just higher yesterday.

They are priced at $60 and have a 50% off sticker on them. They made them all thirty dollars even though I bought multiple.

Hmm just came home from BB. Didn't see any stickers on them. They have been on the same shelves for months though.

They've been slowly dropping for months at various stores I go to, so I wouldn't be surprised if this will be the price at quite a few places in the comings days/weeks

Wasn't there just a thread on this being $60 yesterday at Best Buy? I checked it and verified the $60 price tag, but no %50 off sticker.

If that special applied to like a hundred different games, then sure. >_>

No, of course not. They just have a shit ton of CE's at 50% off and others 30%. A lot of other random DS/Wii/PS2 games are marked with them stickers. Some PS3/360 ones are as well.

None of my stores seem to use the special stickers people have been talking about lately. This appears to be a store specific thing, and he lucked out because they put it on these collector editions.

Thanks for the heads up Cuke but I just got back from BB and this is definitely a manager's special. I asked the guy to look up the SKU's for AssCreedBro C.E. for both :360: & :ps3: and they are still $49.99; Halo Reach L.E. is $59.99. I didn't ask him to look up KZ3: H.E. though.

And Cuke, maybe

Too bad it's not a store wide deal. It'd be great if everyone here can reap that deal.

Was just at BestBuy and grabbed two copies of the Legendary for a friend and I, rang up the same price as yesterday, $59.99. Sticker price said $149.99 and the "sale" ad they had standing on top of the stack of boxes said it was $99.99.

YMMV on anything cheaper than the $59.99?

Def YMMV I went to the only one I ever saw weird stickers at (thats the manager special cue I believe...) and they were ringing up for the normal price.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more

They always make so many Halo Legendary Editions. Microsoft was clearing the ones from Halo 3 on Club Bing three years after the game came out. They still had the "do not sell before <release date>" stickers on them. I won a couple of free Reach Legendaries in the spring. They were being cleared out from Microsoft's PR supply closet I suppose because lots of smaller community sites had contests for them at the same time. The codes for the flaming helmet were still going for more than $50 on ebay a month ago which amazed me considering the whole sealed package has been available for around $60 on and off for months now.

If anyone is at all interested in the Halo 4 Legendary Edition, consider buying the cheap version and waiting unless you really need to put whatever statue it comes with on your shelf immediately.
