I really hope crysis 2 for PS3 turns out ok, I'll get that and Dragon Age 2. Sucks that Killzone 3 isnt on there, I guess they wanted it to be multiplat


I expect their to be more deals on shooters with so many of them coming out or already out. It'll be hard for games to hold the $60 price with so many games dropping each month. I'm waiting for a deal on ME2 for PS3.

You may want to try the PS3 demo of Crysis 2 that came out yesterday. Compared to the X360 demo, graphics are a bit better, however it suffers a drop in frames pretty frequently. The X360 demo I found much more stable, so I'll be getting that version.

If by some chance that's a wireless controller the 360 deal ain't horrible for an off-week B&M deal.

I was just looking at next week's ad and I wanna pick up Crysis 2 but I do not care for the deal. The k-mart deal is much much better than a $10 gift card, altogether you're gonna spend at least $100 to get Crysis 2 and another new release. So I was thinking of price matching, of getting Crysis 2, a $10 gift card and a $50 PSN card for 20. I have never done any price matching before at best buy, would it work? The k-mart ad as followed.

BB is offering the same $10 giftcard+another $10(500 bonus points) for pre-ordering too. But with homefront selling like crazy, bulletstorm & KZ3 still relevant I wouldn't be surprised to see crysis 2 drop w/i the 30-45 price match window, you'll pay more upfront but get so much more in total.

Take Homefront for instance if you got the BB deal & price matched Walmart you paid $43 got $10(500 bonus points) & the headset(if you were lucky). I do this all the time so most of my game purchased on day 1 basically cost me $25-$30.

It's the same controller that comes with the system per the picture in the ad.

They only cost you that much if they drop to $45 within a week or two, which has only happened for a few major releases lately.

Thanks for the heads up on the controller, not really into getting a 360 atm but my brother might bite i think he has credit.

Honestly, you got no chance there's to many reasons that they can reject the pm per their policy(bundling,SYWR,items).
Basically, Crysis 2 $10 gc + $10 RZ cert in 30-35 days & you can use the $10 gc/$10 RZ to make the PSN card for $30 that's bout it.

BB has a 30 day window for price matches or 45 days if your a silver member. I tend to pick games up on sat. just to entend this. So if I buy next sat. I'll have till 5/10 for a price drop. Socom/Brink/MK all come out plus fear 3 right around the corner & KZ3/bulletstorm/homefront already in the picture it'll be hard for this to stay at $60 w/o a sale.

We don't carry the wired controller anymore, so it's likely the wireless controller.

I'll probably get flamed for asking, but, I have $15 in RZ certs...so can I use those for Crysis 2 making the game $45+ tax and STILL get the $10 gift card, even though I'm using "coupons" on the game?

On a side note, he $20 off selected games is nice...but I already have Dead Space 2 and Dragon Age 2 (the 2 main games I WOULD be interested in), and I still have to beat those, along with Homefront, and then of course Crysis 2.

I have a question.

I printed out two preorder slips for Crysis 2. Both of them were for Xbox 360. I haven't seen anything in the fine print that states you are only eligible for the $10 RZ bonus once per account but wouldn't be surprised if they had that policy but just didn't put it in writing for me to see... does anyone know anything about it?

Also, I was wondering if anyone things they will be able to use the 10% BB coupon that is valid until the 03/27 when they pick up Crysis 2. If so paying ~ $54 with a $10GC and $10 in future credit (posted in 30 days) isn't a bad deal...

plus where I'm buying 2 copies I'm 4/5 of the way to another $10 RZ coupon due to the Gamers Club promo of "spend $150 on games get $10 RZ certificate"

I know this is off topic, but sometimes you just need to vent.

A few weeks ago i was an inch away from the Sony deal with the 55" LED TV and PS3 for $2198, plus a TV stand the sales guy was pushing for $100 off ($400 instead of $500) if i signed up for their Credit Card.

I told him i'd pull the trigger if he could throw in KZ3 as they had versions of the PS3 with it packaged on the shelf, and i wanted that version, or a copy of the game to make it happen. The guy i was dealing with (some kind of manager) says sure, if there is any way i can make it happen, i will do that, as long as you sign up for the BB CC. So i tell him that I'm putting the TV on the Sony card i have, but i will put the stand on the BB CC. He hands me off to some sales person, and tells me that he needs some info for the credit card. I tell him, i'm only signing up if i buy the stand, and want to make sure i'm getting what i want before i have anything subitted. No problem he tells me. So he takes all my info, prints out a reciept with a credit limit printed on it, and says OK, now lets take care of the sale. I'm not too concerned, because i'm excited to be buying a sweet TV. Next thing i know, i have some higher ranking BB mnager telling me there is NO WAY they can give me a copy of the game with the deal, it's already SO LOW they would be losing money (Oh fuc%ing give me a break).

Long story short i get pissed, tell them to cancel the transaction, and they inform me that there is no way to undo the credit, it's already been submitted, but i can cancel over the phone in 2 days. That affects my credit score... I called BB consumer relation and they tell me SORRY! Nothing we can do for you. SO a big Fuck YOU to BB.

As anyone done the math on where the break even is on RZ? I'm just starting to game, so I will only buy a few a year. And I try to not pay more than $30-40 per game.

Also, I've got a ton of gift cards to BB, what stores have decent deals that I could PM to? Back when I played Xbox, CC was still in business and I used to always PM off each other.

Yes... From what I gather, BB stores only have the LE and the CE, the 2nd batch of DS2 haven't hit the store yet... The $20 promo should also work on the CE.

Break even? There's no longer a fee for RZ membership (though I think you still have to sign up for the Gamer's Club separately from the regular membership).

For gaming stuff, you earn $10 back for every $150 spend (not including tax or any amount paid for by GC or RZ certificate). For all other items, you earn $5 back for every $250 spent (and I think your gaming purchases *also* count toward this bucket on top of the Gamer's Club).
