Has anyone seen Metroid Prime 3 for less than $49.99? That's the used price at EB, but I'm still not wanting to pay that much for it...

Anyone seen any deals on Lost: Via Domus for the 360? I know the game is supposed to be trash but I'm a sucker for the show...plus some easy nerd points are a nice bonus.


It's $35 used at EB now.

$49.99 is the new price at most stores. I think Dell had it for $45 a few weeks back. You could also wait for the next SiG Electronics sale, but they have limited stock.

Is the CE for Enchanted Arms a normal Case? or does it have one of those stupid special cases? I ask because I can only find the CE @ Futureshop, and I hate those boxes. I'd rather just have the normal box.

For either 360 or PS3, I never heard of CE for Enchanted Arms. Can anyone answer this?

Yeah I know there's like a manga book added to the regular edition. I guess the case might be different to hold the book.

Haha, this EB store continues to amaze me. First they rejected ALL unadvertised preorder to be taken with Trade 3 promo. Unadvertised titles, according to them, are the ones they don't have any posters, etc in their store. Duh!

Today, they rejected me to switch GTA4 to GTA4 CE. When I was making the preorder, they clearly said I can switch it to any other preorders in the system, with paying the difference for such collectors edition. Now they are saying that they can't refund to credit as they bumped up the credit value from 8 to 20, so doing so would be a loss to them. Of course, I didn't even ask for the refund but just a switch to another one.

Did anyone else have a trouble switching their preorder to CE version? If so, what did you have to say to justify it?

By the way, I switched my MGS4 preoreder to CE with zero hassle at another store. I had to travel far to preorder it in another store because of this "unadvertised" BS.

I've always been able to choose which games i wanted to preorder with the promo and the guys even gave me a list of all upcoming x360 games to help me choose from.

Yeah, there's a larger sleeve case that holds the game case and manga.

So where should I be preordering/buying my copy of GTAIV (regular) from? I only know that EB is offering a poster on preorders there, but I'm wondering if any other places got any worth-while swag for grabs.

HMV has a T-shirt with GTAIV on it.

Is it cheaper to buy wii pts online, instore, or from the states?
And if bought from the states, it won't have an issue working, right? (i've heard that XBLive membership cards from the states don't work in canada...).

This isn't really a gaming deal question but it does pertain to gaming. Has anyone seen the Army of Two graphic novel in a store somewhere in the GTA? I really don't want to have to buy it online.

Anyone know the cheapest place to find a slim PS2? I won't pay $120 for a new one, and I don't mind buying used but prefer some limited warranty. I've been following a few leads on kijiji and craigslist, but have found nothing impressive yet.

I even checked EB today and a slim costs $100(?!). I'm sure I could do better.

Futureshop gives away hats (lame I know). The only decent preorder swag I've seen if Amazon's license plate thing, if it wasn't for staff discounts (which isn't much on games and DVDs [don't get me wrong here we get like $1 off regular price on games/DVDs] but the collector's editions for games usually costs the same as the regular) I'd be getting it at Amazon.

Holy cow that's cheap. But I guess that's why we're here (I kid). If you want completely brand new below $100 you'd have to root around deeeep or wait for a sale (Zellers had one a while back, Slim for $99). You can go to Pacific Mall and ask for a discount I guess, dunno if it was warranty though.

This isn't really a gaming deal question but it does pertain to gaming. Has anyone seen the Army of Two graphic novel in a store somewhere in the GTA? I really don't want to have to buy it online.


If you're in Toronto or any major city some comic book store must carry it, if you're in Toronto PM me your contact info, I'll be snooping around looking for some stuff anyway and I'll ask for yah.

It's $14.99 resale value, not trade-in value.
