Nothing gets the entitlement menstruation going like the announcement of an Amazon Gold Box deal event. But I thought they had some good deals in recent months. Last one i got FEAR 3 for 20 bucks and GTA Complete for 21. Oh well, people need to whine and moan, I suppose


don't forget make the same jokes in every gold box thread!

(and the same criticisms!)

Barbie Horse Adventures, do it Amazon!
I've been getting emails from Amazon about the mortal kombat collectors edition, they may put that up again to clear it out. Really hoping they do that at $30 this time.

Amazon has had some bad gb deals recently. I think this is going to be a good one, I can feel it.


Are you trying to crash the Internet with optimism?

Gold Box doesn't do stuff like that. Its simply low prices 1 product at a time


I think there have been times where GB deals have stacked with another VG offer

I'm guessing EDF will be in this, they've had it a couple times already. That and a bunch of other crap nobody really wants.

I too feel the say way. I mean it's getting close enough to BF, I think they just might show their hand a little. One can hope:drool:

That's correct. On July, Yakuza 4 (Ps3) was 'Deal of The Day' and it was also part of the B2G1, although it only lasted a few hours, then Amazon fixed it.

Well, if we're strolling down memory lane, one of the Kinect games for b1g1 was also in the gold box and you got the more expensive game FREE. That was nice.

Rage PC for $30 or less would be nice. ;)
Highly doubtful, though...

Well I know #1 will happen for sure. But why would they have WaW for $15 again? COD4 is already part of Amazon's Video Game Deals of the Week and for a very modest price of $15 as well. That's "Up to 50%" off the normal price.

I was banned for sticking up for another poster who made a deal and that deal was reposted later on but with a lower price, which the original thread updated to reflect very soon after the reposted thread was made. The latter deal made the frontpage but with zero credit to the person who first discovered the deal and so I confronted the mods about this and told them in a back and forth debate how much the site has changed for the worse and so forth and they perma banned me. I still don't think I did anything wrong in that situation and I don't really miss posting there as I was posting much more on here anyway.

I can be a little annoying on here at times, but for the most part don't take me too seriously. I like to be helpful and I try and find deals and such. I can be pretty opinionated and well..an ass sometimes too but for the most part I think I'm alright :D

I know ssj, you can be misinterpreted as an ass at times. Just like IATCH. No biggie.

Cod:Waw has been dotd 3-4 times at $15 now has it not? Thought so but could be wrong

No way I see la noire at $15, I wish but not for dotd. They wouldn't have enough in stock guaranteed!

Deals can't be that bad. Last REAL lighting sale had majin, enslaved, naruto, and other good games at good-ok prices. Hopefully more mainstream games that rarely go on sale do so or maybe some super cheap games.

Definitely was hoping/looking forward to this, I'm fairly sure Amazon will match the B2G1 (Which makes me wonder why I'm about to leave for TrU since it's not been a great sale in recent years)... I think it was 2 years ago when I was able to get the latest Need for Speed, Dirt 2, and some (at the time) new release game for like $70 due to the lightning deal stacking with the B2G1 (and it took the prices based on pre-lightning-deal prices which was fantastic)..

Realistically hoping for deals on RDR vanilla, Borderlands GOTY and maybe FIFA (I know it was just $40 at TRU but I'm hoping for a $30 price point)

The reason I feel the Gold Box events deserve some scorn is that you'll often has seen the game on sale selling for less a week before, they raise the price, then drop it again for the gold box.

Amazon is often great for a lot of deals - I love it. But, recently, the gold box has been hype for what amounts to a higher price lol
