Is there a link to newegg's site for this deal?
Id like to get amazon to price match....
or is that how they get around that issue, by using the coupon codes.

I think I have every major video game release for the next 4-5 months preordered from them

Me too. I now have Skyrim, Uncharted 3, Gears 3, Halo Anniversary, Batman, and Assassin's Creed all preordered from Newegg.

Will there be exclusive PS3 content in Batman AC like there was in Batman AA? Has anything been announced?

I always buy games I especially want and going to play immediately on release day, so batman is a must (even though I have suspicion that the price would drop significantly later this year).

For those early posters, how did u get to preorder batman ce for $60?

Skyrim was $47.99? When did this happen? Guess I missed my chance to get that too...

Is there a thread to compare the pre-order bonuses from Newegg <-> Best Buy? Anything without a pre-order at Best Buy, I'd have to go with Newegg. I still wanna do the BB $100 gc thing...

There is this thread and it seems to be updated pretty regularly.

I don't know why I even keep a Gamefly account open anymore. I've just been pre-ordering every game I'm even remotely interested in from Newegg because of these deals.

Well, it's not like Amazon couldn't price match them if they wanted to, adding a $10 or $15 credit to whatever games they want to promote.

We've seen them throw together B1G1 50% promo pages in under 24 hrs to match Best Buy promotions. This can't be more difficult to manage; the systems are all already in place.

They, clearly, choose not to respond. And haven't been offering many good deals/credit of their own, comparatively to last year and the year before.

I hope they step up their game. I like amazon for the ease of shopping one place for the best deals and release day shipping (prime.) But if I had to shop a 2nd place, newegg certainly beats out most of the big box competition (walmart, best buy) in my mind.

Awesome. I was going to preorder from them regardless, but this is just icing. Plus, it's a pretty bad ass shirt and something I'll actually wear.....well, if it's not XXL or something like that.

Thank you! The CS rep I talked to couldn't tell me one way or another and told me to call WB. I'm in for one now too. Agreed on the T-shirt. Combine that with the $12 savings and this is a great deal. Thank you!

Halo Anniv on newegg comes with a preorder bonus? I am a sucker for this stuff. It seems the preorder from amazon is on other stores so thinking maybe newegg to?


I must be blind but where is this mentioned?

I'm thinking that the Halo Anniversary "pre-order bonus" is actually like their "online pass" : I'm pretty sure it's with every new copy of the game (at least initially) and per Amazon's description is included in-pack.

“Grunt Funeral” Skull :

An exclusive, game-modifying skull that changes the rules of the game for an explosively humorous experience, "Grunt Funeral" sends "Halo's" most lowly and lovable enemy out in a blaze of glory. And plasma. And then more glory. Once the skull has been activated, every grunt's methane tank will explode like a plasma grenade when killed. Watch out for the grunt chain reaction!

Hopefully they do another MW3 pre-order sale... I hesitated on the last one as I wasn't sure if I wanted to wait for the Hardened Edition but now I've decided I can do without.

Newegg scores another preorder from me (Saints Row 3). Now just give me a Skyward Sword deal and I'm set this holiday season.

Already ordered the MW3 Newegg preorder deal. Why pay Halo: CE for $30 when you get a game you already played, plus only 6 online maps. (This is coming from a Halo fan). Guess I'll wait for the inevitable Rage preorder deal

It seems kind of silly to cast aside a $40 savings on the CE just to save an extra $12 on the regular edition. All I'm saying is, if I had a preorder for the CE locked in at $60 I wouldn't even bother looking at other deals for the game.


it does, but at the same time, the CE features arent that overwhelmingly impressive to me.

really want saints row at this price, but if i'm gonna preorder it, i'd want the bonus car that launches pedestrians.



I love how that sounds like an incredibly evil thing to say, yet I agree whole-heartedly 'cuz ya want all the DLC. Funny! :lol:

Newegg needs its own sticky post for all the pre-order awesomeness that has come out of it in the last month or two.

I wish I hadn't missed the MW3 (apparently) one.

So its confirmed that the human launcher doesn't come with the SR3 pre order?

Guess I'll just pick up halo then.
