Wouldn't bad if they dropped the price of the DSi and XL along with the 3DS. Even with a gift card I can't justify a DSi at $150 when a 3DS is just a little more. And yes, I know, that's just what Nintendo wants.

Good deal on DOA. Is Punch Time Explosion any good?


From the videos I've seen it looks like a frustrating game to play but if you are looking for filler till ssb 3d comes out (I know I am) this could do the trick for the right price. I'll consider it for less than 20

So you can get zelda for 10 with a 3ds purchase ? I would jump on that if I didn't have a 3ds already

Can't believe there's no Deus Ex deal. Would have picked up a Augmented X360 version to compliment my $28 PC copy, had there been a $20 giftcard.

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

It didn't have a deal so I didn't list it. Just the pre-order bonus.

From BestBuy.com

Free Tactical Enhancement Pack with Deus Ex: Human Revolution

To survive in a dystopian world where humans are being mechanically augmented into super-enhanced beings, you might need some extra firepower. That's where this special launch offer comes in.

Just order Deus Ex: Human Revolutionfor Xbox 360, PS3 or PC, and you'll get a code in-pack to unlock the Huntsman Silverback shotgun and the Longsword Whisperhead (SERSR) sniper rifle. They'll come in handy in a game that offers a perfect mix of action and role-playing, combining action-packed close-quarters takedowns with intense shooting.

If you love xcom get shadow wars (those guys made this game). Even if you haven't played xcom you still get it ! I haven't been able to put the game down. I haven't played dead or alive 3d though do I can't say I recomend it or not

Keep in mind people that Brink is $29.99 :360::ps3: and $19.99 :pc:. The price drop went even lower before Best Buy had the chance to fix their ad for this upcoming week.

and HELL YEAH I'm picking up RE: Mercenaries for that price!

you must not have been interested in the deals that stacked or missed them altogether. This was like the only 2nd week in the past 2 months that there wasn't a good deal.

Gears Triple pack might be worth picking up.

That $20 off @gamer coupon is still in effect. So you'd only be paying for the $5 pre-order.

Can't believe there's no Deus Ex deal. Would have picked up a Augmented X360 version to compliment my $28 PC copy, had there been a $20 giftcard.

there's no way they'd give a $20 gc on that game only truly AAA titles get that much. Best chance is to try to pm the target $10 gc to make the game $50 & the $10 pre-order.

Hey, if Amazon matches the $20 3DS games, you might be able to get them for free if you held on to the Zelda half-off credit.

I used mine to get Lego Star Wars and it took $20 off a sale price, so I got it for $10. Unless they fixed it, it's half-off the MSRP and not half-off the price match.

Don't get too greedy with the deus ex gift card. I'll take any gift card they give me (its not like retailers have to do it) just be thankfull that your next target purchase will be less after you get the card

In for Resident Evil Mercenaries if at $20. Good time to buy a 3DS, tons of games on sale lately at $20 or less.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

Huh, now I've got a decision to make: What to buy with my birthday $5 reward certificate before it expires on 8/27...?

DOA: Dimensions
RE: Mercenaries 3D
Unknown (BR+DVD+Digital Copy)--on sale for $14.99 the same week

The first two would be $14.99 AC before applying tax, while the third would be $9.99 AC before tax.

I'm not much of a fan of fighters, as I can never dedicate enough time and patience to get the most out of them, but I liked playing the DOA:D demo. My only concern is that since I'm more of a single-player gamer, I wouldn't get as much out of DOA:D as I'd like...

I wasn't even considering Mercenaries until I read all of the replies saying $20 is an awesome price for it; after doing some more research, it sounds like a pseudo (and I mean very loosely pseudo) Dynasty/Samurai Warriors in that you replay levels to increase your characters' skills, which only entices me further. The only drawback I can think of is that the lack of a story might affect my enjoyment, but given that I enjoy games like Contra 4, that might not be an issue.

I very much enjoyed Unknown, but I think Taken (which I already own) is a superior movie and as such, buying the former wouldn't be the best choice.

Any thoughts? They'd be greatly appreciated. :D

Come to think of it, this $50 gives 100 RZ points (new gamer's club double points - equivalent to $2), plus 1/3 of the bonus 500 RZGC points or ~$3. So, it's like getting Deus Ex for $35+tax on release day. I'm good with that! :)

If you log into the RZ site, there's an ad saying that DE3 gets a 500pt ($10) coupon with preorder. PC, Xbox, PS3.

Yeah, with the 2X points + 25% bonus points I've been stacking game purchases up before the 9/12 change to bad there hasn't been alot out except for the b2g1. Hopefully, they add more perks to the new program besides what's been announced
