I received my Dark Souls CE today. Totally mangled. And it wasn't even because of crappy packaging. It was packed superbly for shipping in a box, secured to a flat cardboard. It was already dented and they just sent it out anyway, haha. Hopefully I can get replacement.

Thank you Jesus for this! I bought Kinect Sports 2 when it launched for $37, was able to send it back to Amazon for $34. Not too bad of a loss on what ended up being one of the worst sequels I have ever played. Sports One was awesome, but this game suck suck suck SUCKS.

That's what I'm afraid of... I think the current inventory of the CE are returns, most of them are either dented or near perfection. I'm sitting out on this CE, it's not worth it. Newegg's $20 coupon will be handy when the standard version of Dark Souls hits $25-$30, basically makes the game $5-$10 :)

There actually is one that holds all three, but it looks like shit. I meant a third-party device that combines all three devices into something the size of the kinect (or smaller).

Ouch, that sucks on the condition of the Dark Souls CE. That should have been sold on Warehouse Deals only...and once you send it back, probably will.

SPLASH!

Really need a store (besides Kmart) to put up a deal on a PS3 headset. Should've bought the Sony one when it was $65 :cry:

Snagged a Kinect mount. Needed one and $12.80 is a good price to finally snag one.

It kinda varies. Some deals are just active on BF and you can get in on them whenever. Others are Lightning Deals with limited quantities for limited times.

The really good deals tend to be Lightning Deals.

Yeah, maybe. But many of the competition price matches are not Lightning Deals (but some are).

GoW: Collection was $10 last BF, it was a Lightning Deal (Wal-Mart price match). Demon's Souls GH was $15, it was not. And the PS3 Bundle was not a Lightning Deal either. That's all I bought last BF from Amazon, but I remember that price matches were pretty mixed between Lightning and non-Lightning deals.

You think that amazon will have the ps3 bundle for sale? I heard its a Sony bundle so it's not store specific, that means that they should be on sale on all Major stores, right? Including Amazon?

I think you're right. Still, there's no way of knowing what Amazon will use for their lightning deals. I'm hoping the 4GB Kinect bundle isn't a lightning deal or at least isn't in an awkward time slot for me (if it is a lightning deal).

I'd be surprised if Amazon didn't have the bundle. Just about every major retailer has this bundle on sale. It seems like a no-brainer for Amazon to have it as well.

That's obviously a previous return if it did not get damaged in shipping. My Dues Ex augmented came in today and it also had damage. The damage on my copy was on the outer slip cover, it was covered in scrapes that gave it an appearance of a used game. Thankfully, the game box itself was brand new, so I won't be making a call for a return.

Man, for $40, this augmented edition rocks :). Didn't expect something so classy.

Tomorrow there is supposed to be a sale on stocking stuffers (up to 30% off), so I'm assuming you'll see a lot of low priced items at an even lower price. I'm not sure if there's anything for Sunday. Monday is when the real deals are supposed to start with the best deals being offered, of course, on Black Friday.

Why would Amazon think it's fine or okay to post list prices in their sale ?? Or .03 off. Out of 20 360 games, at least a third are like this.

Someone there must be brain dead. Or maybe people actually pick them up anyway and I'm giving the consumer too much credit here.

Exactly!
