got pretty lucky today at the Best Buy in Woodland, CA with purchasing the Skylander's Adventure Starter Kit for PS3. The store was running 50% off clearance games which included the first Skylander's Starter Kit. That stacked with the $25 off RZ coupon. So in the end i walked out with the starter set for $10.XX. I had to get a manger override for the two to stack together so of course YMMV. but i would recommend checking out if your store had the starter sets on clearance.

has anyone tried this at any of the best buys in south florida?


Yes. The store in Boynton Beach price matched this for me without issue. They had them in the back not on the shelves. The manager called corporate first but I doubt he'd have to do that again.

I suppose its worthless getting the collection if you already have 1 and 3?

The trade in values for both are pitiful.

Unless you want the cardboard slipbox, there is no point. Especially since you can find 2 for dirt cheap.

I'm getting tempted with the Resistance collection. Does anyone know if the multiplayer is functional anymore or is it completely dead?

I've been trying to get the God of War Saga Collection and Resistance Collection for days now. It's fairly annoying to advertise an in-store sale only, then none of the stores in the area have the games. I was able to find the God of War Saga Collection today, but it did not have the voucher for the Playstation Plus. I looked through, and none of the copies had it so I asked an employee if they had any copies with the voucher he told me that copy had the voucher even though it wasn't listed on the box.

He looked up the Sku online, and it showed that the box comes with a 1 month voucher and that matched the Sku of the box in store so he kept insisting it had it even though it wasn't listed. I brought over the bundle box (PS3 controller + God of War Saga) and showed him that box and how it did list the voucher on there for 1 month of playstation plus.

They absolutely insisted it would have it, despite the fact I kept telling them it wouldn't, and told me if I bought it they would open it in store and let me return it if it didn't have the voucher. So I bought the God of War Collection for $20+tax, and he opens it in front of me and sure enough, it does not have the Playstation Plus voucher. He starts searching all over online, clearly perplexed by this. After about 10 minutes he grabs the controller bundle and says he is going to just apply the coupon to the bundle instead. I was perfectly fine just buying the controller bundle for $40 ($60-$20 coupon), but I tell him that's a nice upsell since I just wanted the game. He calls over a manager and asks to apply the coupon to the controller bundle and when I go to pay, it rings up at $1.70.

I have no clue whatsoever how he came to that price but he just told me I got hooked up and to go with it. He returned the original purchase and applied it as credit towards the controller bundle, then somehow took another $16 off. At the end of it I purchased the PS3 controller with God of War Saga Bundle for about $23.70. Essentially I finally got the as advertised God of War bundle for $20+tax, and a PS3 dual shock Controller thrown in for another $2.

Still no luck on the Resistance Collection though, no Best Buys in my area have it at all. I've visited 2 stores in person, and called every store in the area but I don't feel nearly as bad about it after getting a PS3 Dual Shock Controller and the entire God of War Saga Collection with the Playstation Plus Voucher for $23 and change.

I haven't played R3 online in awhile but from what I've read in the posts in this thread the multiplayer is still active. I haven't even put R2 in my ps3 yet but I would imagine the online in that one is probably a lot less active than R3.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

This thread had me spooked but I had no problems in the Best Buy in Tempe, AZ. today. Went in, grabbed one of 4 Resistance Collections they had on the shelf. Rang up no issue, used the mystery certificate & Reward Zone offer and got it for $10.92. Didn't like the R3 demo, but I've been told 1 and 2 are better. For $11, I'm not gonna complain.

there were issues due to the offer having a different sku than what the 3 separate cases in cardboard cover has. people were saying it's because bb expected the actual Resistance Collection to be sent but sony just repacked R1-3 in a box.

were you able to get the $20 to ring up without issue?

Yep no issues. It's the 3 in a box like you mentioned and the computer took it no problem.

That's crazy! Wonder why this one was released instead? Now that makes me think he did an override and didn't say anything. Seemed to go smoothly, but I guess it's YMMV with this. I'd be pretty angry though if I were told the deal they released was not going to be honored.

I still have not been able to get the Resistance Collection. None of the stores in my area have it, and I live in a big city. The GM of the store told me to call 1-888-bestbuy, but when I did they can't pull up the sale on their computers since you have to log on to your reward zone to see it. I give them the SKU from the sale, and they can't pull anything up since the SKU is wrong. They also can't pull up the other edition through a search since the new box is not appearing in their systems.

If anyone was able to purchase this and could write down the SKU of the NEW box, please post it so I can call back with it.

My local Best Buy today had like 5 of the Resistance Trilogy on shelf. I grabbed one and took it the cashier. I gave her the coupon and of course it didn't work. Cashier got me an override with no questions asked.

I was in and out in 5 minutes. :)

Well, that kind of explains things a bit more. That SKU is not found online at all. I can understand this going on for a day or two after they first put up the sale, but it's been up a week now so it's pretty shocking Best Buy has dropped the ball this badly. How do you have a front page sale on the Reward Zone with a deleted SKU for a week?

The GM I spoke with said he would take $20 off any PS3 game I wanted because the sale was screwed up on their end and they didn't have the product. I told him I'd hold off on that and wait to try to get the Resistance Collection but the employee told me since the GM ok'ed it I could go back and get that deal at any time. Considering I already got the God of War + Controller bundle for about $23 and change, I'm making out like a bandit on these blown sales. It's just shocking they screwed this up so badly though. I didn't want any "special" deals, I just wanted the advertised one and didn't think it would be this hard to just get what was advertised.
