Thanks OP! Grabbed one!

It's a nice deal and all but I don't understand the point of grabbing 10+ copies. I mean, the market value for this game has decreased quite a bit and there isn't THAT much of a demand for it...not to mention additional content in the Platinum hits version.

Hoarders don't have to have a good reason to be total dicks. It's just something nature imprinted onto their dumbass personalities.

Thanks! It worked for me, but I did a price match at Best Buy even though the nearest MicroCenter was over 60miles away.

For those who's having trouble with Best Buy's price match, I think it works better if you show up to the store rather than call it in. In store, they're probably more likely to sell it to you than over the phone. I just printed out the ad, walked into Best Buy and told the cashier to do a price match since there is a store "nearby" selling it at cheaper price. The cashier didn't seem to care and just sold it to me for $9.99. Of course, YMMV, so try it out by physically going to the store instead of calling the store.

I had to go to a wedding on Long Island today. It was about a 2 hour drive from my house, but there was a Micro Center about 10 minutes from the church so I swung by and grabbed a copy. There were plenty on the shelves. This was in Hempstead.

Beware that the in-store pickup can kill the deal (depending on the time of day, of course). I was waiting in like for 15+ minutes since you have to sit in the same line as their returns desk at my location. Now I kinda wish I would have just paid $6 to have the damn thing shipped. Not to mention someone put "wash me" on the back of my car while I was inside...lol.

i find that hard to believe, since there's only one Micro Center on Long Island, and that's in Westbury on Merrick Avenue...

Just go for it... it's only $330... you can't even buy a decent hooker with that kind of cash anymore.

I'm confused. Does that mean he hallucinated the whole thing?

It means I misremembered the name of the town the store was in and he's a douche. First time in Long Island and the name Hempstead was in my head.

Oh I see. I don't know that area at all.

Figured it was an open bar at the wedding. :)

I had the opposite experience, actually. The line for the cash registers was long, but I jumped over to Customer Service behind just one person.

Dam, doesn't seem to work anymore. I try to buy it online and it tells me it can't and then the MN store is all out.

Is this just online and shipped/shipped to nearest store or can the deal be simply found in store too?

Picked this up at Microcenter on Saturday; they had quite a few copies on the shelf. The game is a lot more fun than I thought it would be.

Email says it is in store only this time around. Hopefully that increases your odds.
