Didn't see anyone posted this. But if anyone is interested, Microcenter has a very good pre-order deal:

Not sure if it's for other systems as well (PS3, Wii, etc) but a good deal if there's a Microcenter near you.

Shipwreck Edit:

It actually appears to be $34.99 + tax out of pocket. The $5 reservation seems to just get you the $25 coupon towards the purchase of the game, which means you have to still have to pay an additional $29.99.

Also, the deal is Xbox 360 only as detailed below:

* Reservation offer good 8/7 – 8/9 for MADDEN NFL 10 for 360! $5.00 deposit required. A reservation receipt will be provided and acts as your $5.00 deposit and a $25.00 coupon good towards the purchase price of one NEW copy of MADDEN NFL 10 for 360 at $59.99. How the math works: $59.99 - $5.00 deposit - $25.00 credit = $29.99 (plus applicable taxes) YOUR RESERVATION RECEIPT MUST BE PRESENTED WHEN PICKING UP THE GAME. Reservation offer available in-store only. You must pick-up your reservation between 8/14/09 – 8/30/09. Limit one reservation offer per customer. See reservation receipt for complete details. Offer subject to change or end at any time. Not responsible for manufacturers delays or cancellations.

Would this be good to buy to resell later? No, interest in playing it...

Just got my Micro Center weekly gaming special email.

Micro Center is running a deal where you can purchasehase Madden 2010 for $29.99 if you put down a $5.00 deposit 8/7/09-8/9/09.

The $29.99 is after the $5.00 deposit.

This is an in store promo only.

The email shows the 360 version but I think all version are eligible.

Wow, that's a damn good deal... I might even go for it at that price and I wasn't even planning on getting Madden this year.

I haven't bought a Madden in several years, but at this price, before the NFL season even starts, might give me the incentive to pull the trigger.

I was on the fence about picking up Madden this year, but I may well jump at this.

Wow, that's an amazing deal for a game guaranteed to sell incredibly well. I guess it's a good way for Microcenter to get more exposure as a game seller. I'm already going to get it from NFL.com's store with a gift certificate I got for buying a samsung.

It worked. There are two Microcenters within driving distance of me in MD and VA, and I've never been. I'm gonna drive up there tomorrow and reserve it and will surely do some other browsing while I'm there, so it's definitely good exposure.

I just called and gave the guy the SKU, he came back and said the deal only included the 360 version (according to him).

Got the email this morning & had to read through it 2 or 3 times before I believed it. I already have the game on pre-order with Amazon, but this will let me get the game on day 1 and I can flip my Amazon copy whenever it arrives.

I definitely wish I had a Microcenter within like 30 miles of me, not only for this awesome deal, but they always have incredible deals on PC hardware as well.

Or you can open it and keep it at a pretty damn good deal for a first day release.

you will waste about 30 dollars in gas going to and from the first time and then to and from the second time. So just chill and buy it from bestbuy :D

First off, the actual cost is $35. Then factor in fees and shipping, the profit would be about $6
