Those copys were obviously snagged online for instore pick up after the deal went live


LOL. I was going to order it as a filler for the $10 promo but I guess that's out now. And it doesn't allow instore pick up at all.

I doubt that's the case with my local BB. NOBODY ever snags the DOTDs there, since I always seem to see them in stock.

I'll run by tomorrow, as I know they've got a nice big stack of Limiteds in stock. Worst case scenario...I return the copy I just bought online when it gets here.

was hoping for under $10.

and if the used game is in good condition and has all its codes its the same thing as a new game. and if its not in good condition every place will refund you.


And if you do too many returns, gamefly will ban you, even if the returns were due to faulty discs. I don't think it's the same thing.. with all the chipped/unplayable discs people get, there's a big difference in convenience when you pay for a new game vs. a used gamefly copy.

Nope, the game hasn't been available for pickup since before it went live. I wonder if they are somehow differentiating between limited and regular. I can only find one upc online though. Maybe stores only have limited, and online is regular, and that is why you can't pickup in store?

It's the same game to me. It doesn't really matter if you see things differently because I'm the one paying for it.


New = support to the devs. Period. That's why I try to buy new whenever possible.

That and to avoid stains and random hairs. Shudder.

Anyway, whether you buy used or new is ones own choice. But they are not the same thing.

Some of these devs putting out games that're essentially bugfests though don't deserve the sales imo. Moreover, all of the companies doing the online passes or locking out content that's ON DISC unless you pay more to unlock it should go eat a big, fat, veiny one as far as I'm concerned.

Then don't buy a game if you're not interested in it or it doesn't meet your quality standards. I know this doesn't jibe with your worldview, but everyone deserves to be paid for their work.

I received this game for free after the trade 2 Target coupon, and traded it back in for $16 recently. It's worth a playthrough. Some of the races will shock you. Just wait until the end. I liked the idea of racing from the West coast all the way to the East coast. I'm thinking they'll probably make a sequel. Just my two cents.

You're wasting your time.

Even if they released a perfect game, do you think he'd actually support the devs? Of course not.

You do realize that ea has already been paid for the games right? They get paid when best buy buys them not when the consumer buys them. Seeing how they are trying to get rid of them...regardless of if you buy new I don't see them ordering more just so they can take a loss at $15 again.
I really wish people new about business before getting into a slap fight just to do it.


Not to mention. The game is not even great. It's average at best. So why are we supporting devs that ea themselves don't even trust anymore? Lol the devs have already been paid.


Also...why are you in this topic? Why not set up shop on the gamefly or GameStop topics? Lol

Plz do not waste $15 on this Shiite game. It is worth $5 at most, and that's if your bored!! I have been a hardcore racing fan for a long time, played over 10-12 racing games on current gen. And Nfs run is by far the worst game ever. The main story last 3 hrs with cut scenes. About 2 while driving. Wait until its $5. I am happy I got it for $28 on black Friday, and few weeks later traded in for $30

Lol


I do too since you happen to be wrong. But I'll let you try to figure out how yourself.

@mgorsi - well there's your problem. You were looking for a hardcore racing game and this certainly isn't one of those.

Are you suggesting that people who believe in supporting game developers can't be interested in Best Buy's daily deals?

Sure, I write about games for a living and yet I don't know about the gaming business - if you say so. Yes, obviously the publisher was paid for the games when they sent them to the retailer. New sales still contribute to the likelihood of the retailer ordering more games from the publisher in the future. Not really interested in debating it beyond that though.
