why would you get 360 FFXIII if you have a PS3?


I couldn't find the PS3 version while I was there. It was either that or Final Fantasy II on the PSP, Sonic Classic Collection on DS, or Dreamcast Collection on Xbox 360. Kind of short on funds doesn't help too.

I already have FF II on my GBA and have all the Dreamcast Collection games on other consoles. (Sonic Adventure on Gamecube, Sega Bass Fishing on Dreamcast, Space Channel 5 Part 2 on PS2, and Crazy Taxi on Dreamcast). I have Sonic Mega Collection on Gamecube and Sonic Ultimate Collection on Xbox 360.

My friend has the PS3 version, so I just wanted to be different from him. Also, I didn't even know about that possiblity of hurting the PS3, then again I have a slim model.

Going for Batman, Gears and either Fifa or PES 12 at lunchtime. This is right on time. I am finally caught up with all my games. I would have gotten Batman at Kmart and gotten the $30 gamer coupon, but I already have 2 of the $20 coupons in my wallet and will use one for Battlefield and 1 for COD. Still need to get 2K12 in there somewhere.

My TRU did not have Trop4, wish they did. They also did not have the Wireless Speed Wheel peripheral MS just released, I would have definitely thrown this into the b2g1 since it retails for $60. Anyway, after much mental waffling on where to pick-up Batman, I snagged the following on the TRU deal, all 360:

Batman AC
F1 2011
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

I had $40 in gift cards which made the TRU decision easier, plus F1 2011 and AC:AH don't strike me as being heavy discount candidates in the near future. I'm sure I'll be wrong, but it's just an educated guess when you try to maximize a deal like this one.

Is the placeholder method via gift receipt really dead?

Some of my boys are able to put down placeholders with gift receipts when the game(s) they want is/are sold out of the TRU location they visit.

Or is this just pertaining to placeholders that are NOT during this week's B2G1F sale [i.e. walking in next week to get BF3 with a gift receipt, etc. etc.]?



I'm trying to get Dance Central 2 [don't flame me] next week by maybe picking up Just Dance 3 as a placeholder.

So....no Best Buy price match yet, huh?

I'm tied into Best Buy as part of their "pre-order 5 games, get $100 gift card" deal. The local games department manager says they usually officially match company-wide later in the week. (And he said they should have their own B2G1Free soon.)

although I didn't buy any placeholder games yesterday since I already have all the games I want pre-ordered from Best Buy, I specifically asked the manager who was in the video game dept. if I could exchange a game I purchased for $59.99 as part of the Buy2Get1Free deal and the manager said "yes". They said I could not get a refund for $59.99 unless I brought back in all 3 games, but that I could definitely exchange a game for another $59.99 game.

Now Prim or others may say that it is not company policy to do this (which it may not be), so a lot could depend on your own local store. This mgr is there all the time so I am pretty confident that if I took part in this deal I could go in next week and do an even exchange for BF3 (or any other $59.99 game).

I have my BF3 pre-ordered from BB because of the free expansion pack that you get with the game. There is no preorder bonus for BF3 at TRU

Thank you sir. BF3, I'm not concerned about. I have both of my SKUs taken care of already.

Dance Central 2, I'm more concerned about, since I don't personally know anyone working @ Harmonix nor Microsoft outside of work.

Just got back from my lunchtime visit to TRU. I didn't plan on picking anything up this year due to low funds but I was at a local casino this weekend with my wife for our anniversary and managed to win $150. Clearly that was a sign that I needed to do the B2G1 deal.

I ended up with Dark Souls (PS3), Batman AC (PS3) and Rage (360). Not too shabby.

Went to TRU earlier this morning and they had the Cabela's 2k11 and Rappala fishing bundles clearly marked at $9.98 each, so decided to do another round. Already had Cabela from Gamestop, but grabbed another just in case I wanted to do multi-player in the future. Made Populous DS my 3rd game for free and told the clerk if he saw me again, deny me from buying anymore, lol. This site makes you spend money even when you have no intentions8-)

If this is true and Best Buy does end up doing their own B2G1, I could go ahead and buy Arkham City today at BB and get a price adjustment later, correct?

(Sorry for asking a BB specific question in a TRU thread).

I believe it was established previously in this thread that ToysRUs and Best Buy now mark all three games at $39.99 when doing the B2G1Free sale so that you can't use a "placeholder" game. If you returned the placeholder game next week and wanted to pick up a newly-released game then, you'd have to pay another $20. ($39.99 placeholder refund + $20 = $59.99 for new title)

Got Arkham City (PS3) at Best Buy today. For those that asked, yes, the Robin voucher is inside the case. I asked the employee at the register in the video game section about the Batman: Under the Red Hood movie mentioned in the online ad, but he had no idea what I was talking about. :roll:

Hopefully you already traded Just Dance in. Best Buy's site is showing the xbox version tiv for 23 now and wii for 22. Comes up on the first page as 29 still but when you click to trade it it shows the updated price of 23. Guess they finally caught on lol.

Just walked out of TRU feeling pretty good. Grabbed Rage, Resistance 3, and Batman with the B2G1. Got the free figure and used the 25 dollar gift card I got a couple weeks back for buying Dead Island to knock the total down to 104 with tax. I'll give the figure to my kid cousin for Christmas so that's one less gift to buy later.

EDIT: Sorry for the double post, as I'm guessing that's frowned upon by the mods around here.
