I just picked up the Limited Editon GoW3 at my local Target for $19.98 on clearance, so I'm definitely glad I waited.

Meh, I bought at release, and I'm not worried about it. $60 from Amazon, $1 for release date shipping, no tax, $20 credit, Savage Kantus DLC, and two months of playing before now. Plus the golden weapons for playing during launch week.

This is $38ish with tax and 800 MS points is worth only about $8 if you buy points on sale. It's really a marginal difference for me.

I call bs. What target would put a recent release like that on clearance. Let's see the receipt.

Did any of you guys who already played the game think the dual analog controls seemed a little cumbersome? I love Gears, but I just started this the other day (picked it up at release) and I was somewhat frustrated by walking/running and keeping my field of vision (right analog) where I wanted it.

It's not BS. The Limited Editions are on clearance, Target doesn't want to carry them anymore. But your chances of finding one, especially at $20, are not very good.

Do these sell out early? I have a GC at home I would like to use and a RZ cert (which I can get online). It would save me $10 in the long run....

I bought it as well. I actually think Gears is an average game, but too good of a deal for me to pass up.

If somehow you can finagle this deal in-store and use the buy 2 get 1 free coupon on games 39.99 and under...could be a very profitable flip.


Has anybody gotten this to work with the B2G1 coupon?

It totals to 37 with tax... that is almost 40 bucks ...geeeshh i don't know..


This game is worth it. I am a bit bias as I am a big GoW fan, but this game is polished and fun.

No in store pick up option, that sucks.

I would think that would be very YMMV as some employees would see that as double dipping.

They have been clearanced. One was at my local store a month ago at 30% off (59.98) but I already had one. Clearance goes in progressive steps and some are now finding it at 75% off ($19.98).

As always target clearance is HIGHLY YMMV in both stock and clearance price (as their clearance prices are done on a per store basis).

Yeah, it's still $79.99 at the stores around me.

Do I get my 800 MS points by buying the game, or do I have to do something to get them? Like, do I automatically get them with the purchase?

Went to my local BB and they PM the website since it didn't say online only. The game was $40 and the 800 MSP rang up just fine, and then they just adjusted the game to $34.99.

Sure as heck beats going there on BF to get it for $5 less but losing out on $10 in MSP.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

It's funny how the biggest budget games, you can often get for the cheapest.

I guess it's the fact that these games drive in the customers who will then pick up a $9.99 DVD, a controller etc.

I know if I didn't already have gears I would be all over this

Agreed.

Amazon has PM'd the $35 price, but no points.

Yeah, I couldn't pass this up, too good a deal. I literally was just about to pay for 800 points for the Dead Island DLC ( addicted to the game) - so, this was a no brainer. Besides, I get triple points on it - gamers club + Best Buy CC FTW.
