Goomba, I just placed and order for $46.94 (PayPal ID #96K84203RN717015D) but I never received a confirmation receipt from GFC like I usually do. I just want to make sure that the order was received properly.

Yes. Some of them have even already had price drops.

How bout Nintendo first party games like Starfox ?


Steel Diver is a Nintendo First Party game. I think it was $9.99 a couple of weeks ago at EB games. I also saw Nintendogs and Cats for $20 and Pliotwings resort for $20.

I have not seen any sales on Starfox yet (or any of Nintendo's bigger first party games like Zelda OoT, Super Mario 3d, Mario kart 7, etc.)

For any future 3DS releases, bestbuy normally offers 5-10$ off when you pre-order in the form of reward zone certificates, which is about 25% off at launch.

Has anyone, or does anyone know if walmart is doing in-store preorders for the Vita First edition bundle? I have no BB or FS nearby, and if I were to order online it would most likely get to me by the actual release date (defeating the purpose of an early release).

Did EB stop loading trade in credits on the EDGE card?
I went to trade in a game last week, and the clerk said they got in trouble with the law for avoiding tax, and that only gift cards are used now.

Yep, so no more "tax free" credit purchases. Every purchase is taxed now, even ones bought with trade in credit.

It's cheap to ship to/from Canada. Please take a look at Magiic's Magiical Shipping Guide.

It was inevitable, as I had experienced preordering two copies of Xenoblade last weekend. Why cover the taxes yourself when EB could charge tax on top of the tiv spent like what Futureshop and BestBuy does and Blockbuster did. This move pretty much makes buying virtual money the best option in terms of getting rid of low value trade ins.

Does anyone know if they sell iTunes cards at EB Games? They don't have em on their website. I have a $30 EB gift card and can't find any use for it since they have the worst prices on new games.

I went to EB today, and they had some 10-30$ iTunes cards.

Does anyone know which Final Fantasy I should start with between 7 & 9?

Play 7 first. Then play the one that's actually good, 9. This way you won't be disappointed by going from a great game to a mediocre one. ;)

Seven has historical merit, some good minigames, and some well-written parts.

Nine has a really strong opening and a neat aesthetic.

Both have aged terribly.

Tales of the Abyss is coming out tomorrow, but I want to buy it right away. I have it preordered at EB Games and Amazon.ca as a backup, and now the order says shipping soon, but I've confirmed TotA is already at a store where I can easily pick it up tomorrow as soon as they open.

Since it's shipping soon Amazon won't let me cancel the order, could I just play the copy I buy at EB Games but return my Amazon copy to EB? Or is that considered ethically wrong (of course the Amazon copy will stay sealed and be in new condition).

I don't see anything wrong with that. I returned FFXIII-2 collectors edition to EB that was shipped from FS. EB will ask for photo id when you do a return, just in case the TotA turns out to be a block of clay or something. There is a chance that your amazon package might arrive before your EB opens.

Ok thanks, so I'll go ahead then. I find that with my Amazon orders, I've been receiving them much later in the afternoon, sometimes even close to 6pm. I'd rather just pick up Abyss on the way to school since I doubt it'll arrive before 10am anyway.

I'm looking for an Uncharted 3 limited edition but not looking to pay the 99 price tag.
I found one at a local Source but it was beat up pretty bad and also still at the 99 price point.
Anyone have any leads?

Can you select ISPU when making a pre-order at BB.ca? I don't see that option available to me when filling out the pre-order. Online shipments always get to me 2-3 days after release date...

Secondly, is BB's 800 RZ points ($10) the best deal out there on SSX (PS3) without having to trade? Don't think any of the games I have would work for T2+$10 at EB Games.

Thanks.

Edit: Figured I'd put this here since it'd get seen. Also have a 25% off coupon code for your next Origin purchase. If you use Origin, just let me know and I'll PM you the code. Expires March 22-23ish.

No the $5 off on a preorder works only for online orders, no ISPU is available unfortunately.
I just ordered Syndicate on the weekend to get the $5 off, and it got to me two days after release. Slow shipping is the price we pay for getting it for $5 less :-(

Thanks for the confirmation. Yeah, SSX is one of the games that gets the 800 RZ points. Guess I'll pre-order online to get the deal and maybe pick up a copy in-store and return the online store copy later.

Hrm, here's a question I can't seem to get straight answer on:

Can we buy direct download content from Amazon in Canada? Has anyone managed it? I seem to remember having to have an American address attached not just to your Amazon account but to your credit card as well?

It's kind of ridiculous, really, seeing that every other PCDD retailer treats NA as one region. But then what do I know about the intricacies of selling digital content across borders?

I put the wrong expiry date on my CC and I can't even edit it. I changed it in my account but I cannot update it FOR the order.

Hey, are any of you folks still doing the Live Rewards thing? There was a promotion in January that was supposed to net 800 points for a 12-month Live renewal, which I did, but I can't find any mention of it in my Rewards statement. Are long delays on processing these deals standard?

Anyone know where I can get a new wired 360 controller for $30? Best I can find is on Newegg.ca for $40 with free shipping. Seems like all the deals are for the wireless one, I want wired for playing PC games. The US gets such good prices, Amazon.com has them for $30 but I won't be making a trip to the states any time soon.
