Hoping for $20 on the pack but even at $11 each I'd probably still bite. This might be the last MLB2k game afterall.

I just ordered the Tron Collectors edition for XBOX 360 for in store pickup :) Hopefully they will actually have it in the morning.

In other words, thank god.

But can someone confirm when this deal will happen? Usually wake up much later than I should and I would like to get this game when the stores open.

Yes!!! I have been waiting for Game of Thrones to be $20. Btw thanks OP for the Tron info, I got that and Dragon Age 2. They had one left but I saw a guy looking at some games and told him that it was on sell. Just paying it forward!!

Damn, $22 for both NBA and MLB is a sick deal, even if the MLB 2K series sucks. I paid $30 for NBA 2K12 months ago and have hardly played it.

$20 for GoT is tempting but I can hold out for $10 or less.

If only the combo pack had two separate cases. MLB 2K12 currently has a TIV of $27 at Amazon, while NBA has $17. But no, they have to put them in a single case.

Ok people! Be sure to pricematch your copy/copies of Just Dance 3 from when it was $11.99! Especially if you'll be there for store pick up, anyways!


D'oh! Went to 2 Best Buys today and completely forgot about this :bomb:.

In other news, I think my best pickup from this sale is that Xbox 360 storage tower for $4.99. I almost picked that up for $20 a few months back. I'm even more surprised I did store pickup on that and they actually had it for me!

The Game of Thrones deal is such a conundrum for me. The world of GOT has been one of my favorite things ever since I first read book 1 but I know the general consensus on this game is pretty harsh. At $20.00, I am definitely tempted. Are there any other huge fans of the show/books/world that have played the game and can help to talk me either in or out of this?

I also am a huge fan of everything Game of Thrones and I debated getting the game for a long time. That said I am playing through the game now I find it to much better than the ratings it was given. Its not worth $60 but for $20 I think it's a good deal. It isn't overly long and has its flaws but I think a GoT fan will get their $20 out of it. I know I am having fun with it right now but I am glad I didn't pay $60 for it.

Thank you! I appreciate your insight. I'm leaning towards getting it. If nothing else, I'm confident the story might be a good tide over until Winds of Winter.

While it might not be the preferred option for some, assuming Gamestop's trade-in values hold, MLB 2K12 trades for $21 base (as of 7/9) and NBA 2K12 for $13 (also as of 7/9). Also, if you buy a used game (:wii: Link's Crossbow Training for $0.49 is good fodder) you'll get 30% extra, so you'd get $44.20 ($47.60 if you're a PUR member).

When you really wanna make a profit off something you find a way, even if it means talking to someone at the evil empire of GS. I'd probably try buttering up one of the reps at a GS store with a few $5 pre-order deposits to see if I could get the cases for the seperate games. You could always go back and cancel those pre-orders once you have your cases and the games have shipped out.:evil:;)

I'm in for that combo pack. My NBA 2k has a slight crack in the center (still playable) but I use it so much I'm always worried I'll get a disk read error someday.

I'll gladly use this as an opportunity to grab a new disk of NBA 2k while getting MLB on the cheap. I won't mess around with this deal though like I've done with others, will be purchasing tomorrow and holding to price adjust until the deal goes live.

From a lore perspective I've heard it's excellent. Problem is, it's a game and not the show.

That's good to know, I might go in on a combo pack. Maybe even pick up 2, one to flip and one to keep since as a 360 owner, 2K is the only MLB option for me.

I have NBA as a games on demand. So the disc is useless to me, and dont really want to sell it or trade it in so this is a pass

Just finish building the cabinet that I got from UPS today and this thing is so worth it for the price I paid. Should've ordered 2 when I had the chance, the quality of it is much better than Ikea.

Started playing NFS The Run. It's a really fun game. Can't really comment on the driving physics because I don't play driving games much. But so far, it's interesting. The loading time is a b*tch though, especially for sucky players like me. Everytime I fail, I have to wait for it to load again.
