Got lucky picked up the last one although ringing up at $299 but tagged at $149.

This thing weighs as much as Oprah Winfrey in the 80s.

Thanks OP!

Finally found a store that had one but it was tagged $299.

I don't check CAG for one day and this is what happens. You guys that snagged one at $149 are lucky. :(

I planned on making it to bestbuy on monday and literally work 5 minutes from a bestbuy, but that was the one day I got of work late and store was closed. Now price back up again

The G25 has been on my want (but don't need) list for over a year now. Then the G27 came out and I thought, oh well I'm not burning $300 on a racing wheel.

I checked the local BB in Burbank. No stock but there was 1 in Woodland Hills and 2 in Thousand Oaks. Rush hour on the 101 is never fun and my car is leaking coolant like a bitch, but what the hell, I have a gallon of extra coolant in the trunk.

Woodland Hills store shows one in stock but after 10 minutes of the clerk checking the warehouse, it can't be found. The sticker on the shelf where it should have been showed $149.99, but the clerk said the computer shows $299.99 and even if they did have it they wouldn't sell for the lower price.

Finally ended up in Thousand Oaks and found one on the shelf in a brand new box. Big "Sale" sticker on the shelf for $149.99. I snatched that puppy up and made my triumphant run to the cashier. It rings up $299.99! I say "That's not what your shelf said." 5 minutes later I got me a $150 discount. Woot! The cashier says "I wonder how much it is with our employee discount?" I didn't have the heart to tell him he probably wouldn't be getting that discount.

That bundle will be with the G31. My friend Godot and I are both looking forward to playing GT5 with that.

I'm pretty sure he was commenting on the fact that the other user is hoping for a bundle with the wheel and the game. I don't think that'll ever happen.

As an aside, I'm not exactly holding my breath for the end of 2010 for release date, either. I wouldn't be surprised if it got pushed back yet again.

No way a bundled wheel is gonna be better! Its gonna be an improved version of the gt5 prologue wheel and cheap. They are not gonna have a improved wheel at this good of a price.
Insert clever line here......

Yeah. I've bought a number of FF wheels through the years trying to recapture that feeling I had playing Daytona USA in the arcade the first time. This is the first wheel that's finally lived up to my expectations. I just need to hurry up and build my mounting platform so I can spend some quality time with mine.

Picked up the last G27 today at a local Best Buy; it was still tagged $149.99 on the shelf. It scanned at $299.99 but the cashier honored the tagged price.

Good luck to everyone else still looking- as someone had mentioned before, you may be fortunate to find a wheel that still has the sale price tag.

Thank you tremendously OP!

We'll leave you alone, then, so you can mount your wheel in private.

Just got a cancellation e-mail from best buy and I jumped on this deal when I first saw it on slick deals. Kinda sucks, wish I had went to the store for it.

This is exactly why I didn't hesitate to run around looking for this in store even with my online order , I just had a gut feeling it would be canceled sooner or later.

Me too on the cancel. Damn, and I'm too far away from the stores to go scrounging. I guess when push comes to shove, my "platinum" status means shit.

canceled too :-(

this is the 2nd time BB screwed me on on-line orders! The Lunar Silver Star LE was a complete waste of time. The G27 was a big disappointment! Knowingly they have more in stock... Cheap ass move on their part.

I got a survey for the shopping experience and you know what i'm going to do!

YES!! Got one! :)

Realized that after going to a few other BB's, I didn't check the PC section thoroughly enough at this first store I went to. So I went back there today and found a G27 way in back of the store for $149. Rang up at $300 but I told the cashier it was tagged at $150. Took about 5 minutes for them to check the shelf tag and to get the managers approval, but they sold it to me! Now I just need to get some driving games for my PS3.

This sounds like my story verbatim. Lol

On another note, i played gt5p and i cant seem to get the clutch to work and the wheel isn't listed in the menu. Is there a workaround?
