Everybody seems to be saying that. Does my local Target just suck, then? I went in last weekend and they only had a small number of games as part of the B2G1F. Tales/Abyss wasn't one of them. Also they had exactly 2 Vita titles. Neither of which was included in B2G1F.


How did your local Target manage to exclude games from the B2G1F?

Both the Targets in my area have a great selection and I was able to pick up the games I wanted from them: The Show 12 for the Vita, RE Revelations and Snake Eater for the 3DS.

Where's Deus Ex for $60? You're doing it wrong. You are supposed to find games that you already bought for less than $20, post it, then whine about Amazon. Sheesh!

They're price matching Target. Target has these games for these prices.

You guys gotta get over it.


I was thinking this as well. Not to mention its pretty easy to trip over amazon credit/gift cards.

I am sure I do not know. The guy said it was only good on games that had the special red sticker/tag thing next to the display copy. Not very many of them had it. Perhaps my store's management chose not to participate in the promotion? Can they do that?

He was ill informed. Did you actually try to ring up any 3 games? Cause i'm 99.9999% sure it would have worked.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I have never had to return an item from Amazon that was part of a buy games get one free.Does anyone know how that works with Amazon if a game had to be returned?
Let me state I am not asking because I want to return a game for no reason but to get money back, I am asking because I wanted to know their policy on a sale if a game had to be returned for a valid reason.
Thanks everyone


They pro-rate the discount between the three games. So, you will only get the pro-rated amount back for whatever you return. It's basically the same as Target in that respect although if you return something due to your fault, they make you pay return shipping and won't refund any shipping you may have paid initially.

For those looking for a third $60 game *and* looking to buy a 12 month XBL card or 1600 point cards, Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge comes with a $30 credit for the 12 month XBL card or 1600 point card. It also trades in for $16. Assuming one buys 3 $60 games, you'll pay $40 for the game and get $30 in XBL credit and can trade it in for $16. Not a big money maker but more of a filler.

At first, I thought this sale blew too, but I ended up picking up the following for 25.00 each after the B2G1 discount.

Dark Souls (360), Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, and Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition.

Overall, hard to find three for a lot of people though, in particular if your game library already has some of the titles.

I would have but they didn't have any of the titles in stock that I was after -- no Tales of the Abyss, no Silent Hill HD Collec, and nothing I wanted for Vita. So I didn't bother.

Abstaining from that shit altogether sounds like a nice idea if you are frugal. Yet another version of Blazuie is hardly exciting, and Fuck Capcom.


I'm the same way. $100 is a lot for three games. I'd wait until they hit much lower prices like $10-$15 range. Hey, I'm cheap. ;)

My 6 vita games were received today, most of the prices were not great but it was a good deal for Vita owners as all of these games are still mostly full price. Picked up 3 $40 games and 3 $30 games for 140, will keep me busy for a while.

I did it on two orders, so for whoever asked if you can do 6, not sure if you can do on one order, but I was able to on 2 seperate orders.

It's a good list with new games that launched just last week...but NG3 and RE:ORC at full price is too much based on the quality of them.

I shall wait.

No, it won't let you. I tried getting 2 copies of Tales of the Abyss but I got an error during checkout.

At this point, it's probably unlikely that Amazon would add more games to the list right?

There's literally nothing I want to pair with Radiant Historia and Devil Survivor 2 from the list. If they'd only add DS Overclocked, I'd buy all three right this second :-(

Guess it's time to hope for some additions or a price drop for Fate/Extra LE to $30

Ended up buying Zelda: TP, Assassin's Creed 2, and Mass Effect for $39.95 in Amazon credit.

Only really wanted Assassins Creed 2, so I'll be trading in Zelda and ME. Ended up costing me $10.60 in Amazon credit after all was said and done

They always put the same condition, but early last year I remember placing two separate orders and the discount applied with no problem in both.
And if it does not let you do that, try to create another account.

yeah..feel the same way. Most of the games you can get a lot cheaper with all the other sale going on that it pretty much beats the B2G1. Not bad though if you'r after the games that haven't dropped in price, i.e ME3. :)

Did some more research and now I'm wondering if Kirby Mass Attack has ever gone on sale?

I saw that Kmart dropped it to 19.99 for a week during Christmas season but couldn't find anything else. If that's the lowest it's ever been, I might use Kirby to fill out my order if nothing new pops up.

I believe Super Mario will end up being your "Free" game... If that's the case you could simply return RE:R and they will refund you and it will not affect the B2G1 free deal.
