hopefully the Kitchener TrU will have a good selection...I think I'm going to get Dead Space from the Black Friday sale at Target, ends up being slightly cheaper than buying it through the B2G1F.

Well we're effectively fucked in the ass. My area is pretty RFD free (maybe 'cause it's a rich area? Dunno if it's because of this though) so hopefully my out-of-the-way Toys 'R Us will have its asshole free from RFD ravaging.

I'm kinda glad I told work I was gonna start late XD this way I can get in on this when they open, I only really want Left 4 Dead and a few others anyway.

WOW!
I'm SHOCKED!
I thought you get it at COST+10%?
I was also told that collectors and regular editions are the same!! cost-wise that is!

Check carefully if you are buying more than 3 games at a time.
Last year the system takes off the lowest priced games in the transaction.
For example, if you bought 3 games at $20 and 3 games at $30, you would expect to get $50 off but the system took $40 off instead.
I had to cancel the transcation and re-did them 3 at a time. :roll:

Nah, they're only about $5 off the actual price, a little bit more for the CE that actually matter (Fallout 3, Resistance 2) but not to a point where the price is actually lower because of the +10%. But the shitty ones (Fable 2 etc) have a few bucks off (never more than $5 really).

Yeah and cost is shit too, I remember when I first started I had that misconception in my head too (that games were cheap on cost), but it's like $57.99 instead of $59.99 most of the time and the +10% kills it (the machine automatically gives us the best price... which is regular price).

It ain't all roses and clean babies on the retail side. Toys 'R Us probably has the best employee discount for games (what was it like 10% off any sale price?) but I guess if I ever want a TV I can grab one for cheap. So it evens out.

I get 10% off. And I can do 10% off after price match >_>

But yeah, always surprised at how many people don't realize 10% + cost on video games (software and hardware) is more than retail. Why do you think retail loves used games? ;)

Remember Sony losing money every time they sold a PS3? They recuperated the costs through software and accessories ($60 for an HDMI cable!)

That's standard price for HDMI cables isn't it? 360 HDMI cables are the same, and for TVs HDMI cables (without going into Monster territory) are just around that neighborhood, by Rocketfish I mean.

$3 or less is the standard price I pay for HDMI cables :P

I remember recently one of the executives either Game Stop I said the wholesale price for a new game in the US is $48. Here's one of the best articles on Video game prices from Forbes.

I've heard about this in so many places. I think it might be pandemonium. People are kind of disgusting when it comes to good deals. And I mean this one isn't really a closely kept secret. It would be awesome, sure, but I really think it'll be more hassle than its worth.

My TRU is opening bright and early on 9am on Saturday. I hate waking up early on weekends but for this, I will. However, I'm unsure of which games I want to get now. I thought I had it all figured out last week.

All the TRU around here have standard MSRP. Only EBgames seems to have a 'high' msrp when it comes to certain titles.

First off, it's MSRP, second off, the prices are $59.99 for most new titles from what I can see, and lastly, some people don't want the hassle of placing three separate orders using three separate e-mails.

thanks, what i tried to say was TRU has higher MSRP than amazon. I am looking through their website, and the game prices are still at standar MSRP, even the old games. I went to my local TRU and the games selection weren't great, majority of the newly released games were sold out already (COD/LBP). The place is like a battlefield lol, especially the electronic section. I will still probably pick up 3 games though, but not even sure if it is across Canada. the 2 reps that were working there, never heard of the deal yet as of last saturday.
