I can see it going down some more. I'd bite at $9.99.

I concur with others - this was the most disappointing Gamefly "sale" that I have seen in a long, long time. Might as well have been an Amazon Gold Box sale.

Just because you missed a game or two, or picked a couple up does not make it a great sale. The fact that almost everything was cheaper during the nightly sales makes it a lackluster and disappointing sale for most. Did you get SoD for $10 shipped? If not, then it was not a "great" sale for you since it was that price during the nightly deals. I am not doing a time machine complaint here, just saying that everyone else was expecting something more based on what GF has done in the past and on last year's "year end" sale.

For those of us who actually follow GF sales, this was indeed disappointing, whether you agree or not.

imo the end of this year was better than last year just because of how long the nightly deals lasted compared to last year's sales which had fewer nightly deals and one big sale at the end.

Just because you personally don't like it doesn't mean it's not a great sale.

Shadows of the Damned was $12.99 during the nightly deals, just as it was during the year-end deal, so you're wrong. Most games in this sale were the same price as they were in the nightly deals - I only know of Catherine and maybe a PS3 game or two increasing in price.

Just because you want to pay $5 for every game like in the Best Buy sales doesn't make this a bad sale. Where else can you get 6-month-old or even more recent games for $10-15?

SOTD for PS3 was not $12.99 during the year end sale though (it was $19.99).

Maybe that's what the problem is, people are talking about either the PS3 or 360 versions pricing, and GF does not always have the same price for the same game for each system.

We're all talking about the Xbox version. You're talking about the PS3 version. Sorry for any confusion there.

The poster I was quoting was talking about the Xbox version.

Can you provide some evidence? Because Shadows of the Damned and Alice and other games have never been cheaper anywhere or anytime else. Even when Catherine increased to $24.99 from $17.99, it was still cheaper than anywhere else. A few of the games I bought during the nightly deals like Dynasty Warriors 7 were cheaper in the year-end deal, and I would have bought even more if it weren't for the Best Buy sales draining all my money.

Game selection was repeats and the prices were the same or higher save for a rare exception. I think if you go back a few pages you'll find the general opinion was that the sale was weak. Evidence? What is this a senate hearing? Grow up and learn to deal with differing opinions than your own.

You're the one who said "it was a really crappy sale" without supporting your claim. I'm all for differing opinions, but that's not even an opinion - that's something a teenager would say.

Most of the games were repeats, but save for the titles I mentioned, nothing else went up. If anything, there were more titles that decreased in price. The general consensus of this sale is that it doesn't compete with Best Buy's - but then again, no one can, and as you can read in any of the Best Buy threads, they're hemorrhaging a lot of money.

This sale was fine on its own, but the weekly GF sales leading up to it were superior in selection and price.

It is entertaining reading people get worked up about someone expressing an opinion on the quality of the sale.

I thought the sale wasn't terribly good either. I had personally found a lot of the options new for the same price or cheaper for new. There were a few diamonds in the rough but most of those were seen during daily sales before.

Just got an email saying the copy of Alice I bought was 'received'. I checked my order again and somehow they mixed up my order. It had the right address, yet the wrong city and state. The other two orders I placed on the same day turned out just fine...

People don't get worked up over stupid things for the sake of stupid things, it's about being right or wrong. Which is a stupid thing.

Reading this made my head hurt. I, on the other hand bought Crysis 2 for $9.99, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean for $12.99, and La Noire for $11.99. Every case and manual is mint, and every disc is just like new except for the Lego Pirate game. That one is good, but was cleaned with one of those resurface machines and some of the white cleaner got "inside" of the plastic near the center hole. I have a couple other games that are like that too. No biggie. All in all I think the deals I got were some of the best in a while. The only one that pissed me off a little was seeing LA Noire at Best Buy for $10. Other than that, I saved a ton of cash because I know there is someone out there who paid full price for each of those games.

Sorry I just can't let this slide because you are wrong. This sale did suck and if you had followed GameFly's sales then you would know that. Nobody has to "support his claim" when games in this sale are more than they were in sales over a year ago. It has nothing to do with Best Buy.

What you should take from people saying these prices are up from what they were in previous sales is "I should wait until they are as cheap as they were before" but if you insist on arguing and spending more money go nuts.

Well my Lego pirates must have been lost in the mail. I contacted cs and they're issuing me a refund. I'm a little disappointed because I was really wanting to play it. Guess I'll have to fork out $20 and get it that way.
