Is it possible it's the item I ordered from Blizzard? When I placed my order at Blizzard, it said it was being delivered w/ UPS Worldwide Expedited, is it possible it switched hands over to FedEx while crossing the border?

Ended up being the 'Echoes of War Limited Edition' CD set I ordered from Blizzard, it arrived so quickly I didn't think that's what the package was!

What is the best deal for Fallout NV at this point? I wanted the Best Buy 800 points but they won't let me order it, no stock. Seems like Futureshop with free Mad Max is the next best option but I don't really care about Mad Max. After that Amazon has it for $60 with some pre-order items (don't care too much about these) and then everyone else has it for $65-70 with no bonuses. Am I missing anything? I looked at Best Buy's trade 2 list but I either don't have the required games or don't want to give them up.

Well I went to Best Buy and pre-ordered there, one employee said if it shows 800 pts on the website then I'll get them. The other employee told me they have never done pre-orders online. I said WHAT?

Has anyone bought a used console from Gamestop at all? They have a "Wii System (Gamestop Refurbished) - Used " for $170. Seems like a good deal.

Watch out, last time I tried to price match at Futureshop they gathered a group of literally 5 employees to pore over the ad and tell me all the reasons why they don't have to and won't match it.

Has anyone been to Gamestop lately and noticed the new or used price of MAG? I wouldn't mind picking it up, but their website shows it still as 59.99... where as everywhere else it is 29.99. It seems odd, considering it is a greatest hits. I just wanted to see if anyone had seen it for 29.99 in stores or not.

Speaking of Gamestop and funny pricing, a few weeks ago I was looking at Resident Evil 5 and on their website a new copy was $30 and a used copy was $35.

Also speaking of crazy pricing, Best Buy have had these PSP download vouchers for games like LBP and God of War at $40 forever while the UMD and PSN store versions have dropped to $20. Get a clue, jeez. It's been that way for months.

sorry for the lame question but I forget if I've asked before.

I have a US account. Since there's no way to change it to Canada I've pretty much had to buy it using my US credit cards. My question is if I buy some PSN cards will they work or are they region locked like say UK cards would be.

I can confirm, US card wouldn't redeem on my Canadian account. Most if not all other codes are cross-compatible between Canada/US but not money codes.

Did you try searching the usual suspects? Check out the websites for VideoGamesPlus, Future Shop, Best Buy, Amazon, GameStop...check out the flyer thread to see if there are any sales.
Dante's Inferno is $9.99 at the Sony Store right now, YMMV though.

depending on where you are, check craigslist...i was not sure about it, but i just got a mint GH5 guitar and brand new rock band 2 drums for $75.

Also, check out your local blockbusters...I found a GH: Aerosmith guitar + game bundle for $30. It's not the GH5 guitar, but it's a cheap alternative.

I'd be extremely hesitant to buy a used guitar/music accessory since they have a tendency to break through usage. I wouldn't know how many hours of use were on something, risky. I'll check though, see what I come up with. It would have to be pretty cheap for me to buy used vs $50 new.

Just wondering if anyone has seen if NBA Jam (for the 360) will be sold in Canada? So far I can only find it listed on American sites so just checking to see about Canadian availability.

Every game sold in the US is also Canada. The Canadian sites usually list games later than most of the US ones. Amazon.com will list stuff that doesn't appear on .ca til months later.

I ended up getting the GH5 guitar from Best Buy at $50. Pleased with it, I think it has a better strum bar than the Rock Band 2 guitar and the fret buttons are different but I don't really prefer one style to the other.

Hello all,

Is there a minimum trade in value a game has to be at before it can be used for a power trade?

Thank you in advance!
