Can someone call in and put a 5 dollar preorder down?



the receipt they give you is what you need to get the game for $30....so I think you have to go in store and reserve in person.

I went today and put my $5.51 down on it, for that price it's worth the drive.

I pre-ordered this earlier today. Anyone know if they are guaranteed to have the amount of copies that were pre-ordered or if I should head out early to pick it up jic they sell out and I end up having to wait for them to restock.

I stopped by and pre-ordered today in the Rockville MD store since it was on my way to somewhere else I was going. Man, that place feels like a blast from the past, though they had some good deals on PC stuff. As for their gaming section, seems to me they have a ways to go before respectability. It also seems like they pick their game prices out of a hat, since I saw several old games at ridiculous price points and also newer ones which were competitive. The pre-order was easy to do though once I was directed to customer service.

The Girl at the CS desk said they should have plenty, claims they have it set aside for the pre-order plus plenty to sell in store.

What a sweet deal! Thanks for the find! Went right in to the Microcenter in Rochester, MI. Probably would have shopped around a bit more if the people working in the games department were friendlier!

You can def make around $17 put it up on craigslist for $55...chances are if your area has a microcenter, the craigslist market is big enough...

Pre-ordered it!! Even thought I would prefer it be on PS3, I can live with it on the 360 at $34.99. Does anyone know why they would do it for the 360 and not the PS3? When stores usually have a sale on games, it's usually both. It's odd that they only did the 360.

Sigh.....was totally going to pass on Madden this year and stick with NCAA...now it looks like I'll have both. $35 is just too good for Day 1. Thanks CAG, you've made me buy another game just because it's too cheap to pass up.....

You mean the one in Madison Heights, MI over by Oakland Mall? That's where I just came from. Agreed that the service there is weak. It took me 5 minutes before I even noticed the guy in the back of the room that was chit-chatting on the phone. Then he gave me a pre-order ticket that I had to take up to the front of the store and wait in a hellacious line. Still, to save $25, its worth it.

Yeah, its pretty surprising since a lot of people would be willing to and are still going to buy it at full retail price. But hey, I'm not complaining. Great deal for me since I wasn't planning on buying it at launch and was instead going to wait for a price drop. Well, now I don't have to. $35 at launch is great.

They're probably losing $12-$14 on everyone who preorders. But for that money, they get you in the store twice and now you know microcenter sells videogames.

And... when you see the Prices it won't mean squat that they sell video games other than these kinds of deals they have...

At least those that are smart enough to know full price is insane...

And... that wasn't my point. I was just responding to how/why they would sell so cheap.

Yes, we get it. Nobody should pay full price. That's why we're all here.

I'm just sayin because you made it sound like MC was a decent place to get games. It's not... it's rubbish like all the rest of the B&M stores.

Agreed. I bit on the deal and of course I browsed the video game section while I was there. They had an alright selection but the prices were off the wall, they almost seemed random. I did buy a few other things though, and I now know Microcenter exists, so that's a plus for them.

I really don't care where other people get their video games.

Been anti-Madden for years, but this deal was too good. Never been in the one Microcenter near me since I moved. Probably might not ever go back for videogames unless they have another deal like this, though :P
