This is awesome, I'll be in for at least eight of those titles. I now gotta try and hit silver for next year so I can still PM for up to 60 days. I'm a few hundred short but I'm sure I can pass it when I start X-Mas shopping. Thanks BB. :bouncy:


Where's Enuf at. We need him to get a poll going so we can get Beyond Two Souls on this list cuz it would get my vote asap.

And did anybody notice this? http://www.bestbuy.c...cat264800050003

2013 Titles
Bioshock Infinite
Crysis 3
Deadspace 3
Gears of War Judgement
God of War Ascension
GTA V
Injustice Gods Amongst Us
The Last of Us
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
South Park Stick of Truth
Splinter Cell Blacklist
Tomb Raider

Also, BBY just launched a new preorder system in stores. You can now put down any amount you want up to the full amount (minimum of $5) but can only do that once (can't put down $5 today, $20 later, etc.). Also, it's a different kind of transaction so the whole return/exchange thing will be a thing of the past.

This only applies to titles releasing in 2013 going forward, so all the current titles will still be under the old system.

Here's the pretty little date list like the one in the op.

Edit: actually, looks like they updated the one in the op, so its the same one. Or one of you updated it already :)

Am I missing something here?

All I'm seeing is a list of upcoming releases that everyone already knew were coming out Q1 and Q2 of next year.

I'm not seeing the "deal"?

EDIT: Ahh...part of the $20 promo..

My FIFA 13 points cleared. And I got to ask a stupid question (sorry...):
I was issued a $30 cert, is it one time redeem only (like it said in the fine print), or I can use it several smaller amount transactions?

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I believe you have to have a total exceeding the amount of the certificate in a single transaction. I tried to buy a $4.99 game two or three months ago and couldn't use a $5 certificate.

That sucks.....Okay thanks a lot.

EDIT: And thanks to Evolved. It is sure a dilemma, you issue at $5, then some will have a earlier exp date. Issuing at $20 will extend the exp date (so to speak), but then I can't buy $4.99 games with it ...

Correct, what you're buying has to cost more than the cert.

I may have to cancel some of those games I got for the $45 pre-order deal at Newegg. The 60 day price matching opportunity is too much for me to ignore. To top it all of with the pre-order bonuses they may be offering, Best Buy is making it hard for me to say no.

With this level of service, I hope Best Buy survives this holiday season. I used to be one of the ones calling them "Worst Buy", but their performance over the last year has made them my go-to place for most of my gaming purchases.

I've had the free expedited shipping for the last couple of releases, I think they came UPS Two-day shipping. I ended up getting them on release day, but it just depends on where you are.

...Dang it. Looks like I'm set for the next year (bolded titles = ones I'm considering). Question, though: I already have Bioshock Infinite preordered in-store from nearly 6 months ago (and I already received the Industrial Revolution code), so when I go to pick it up in February, will the new preorder system be in effect to the extent that I won't have to worry about the return/exchange issue?

I was told I haven't received my $20 certificate from Borderlands 2 because I pre-ordered with a gift card. In the FAQ it says you are still eligible if you use a gift card to get the promotion. Anyone else have this problem?


i used a giftcard to do my preorder than pay off borderlands 2, i got the credit really quickly. i want to say within a 2 week period

It will include Wii U versions if they are announced for this list of titles. So far only Injustice is listed as having a Wii U version on bestbuy.com. Click through the title link on the promo page and you'll see the Wii U version of Injustice come up.

I have three must haves on that list: South Park, Last of Us, and Injustice. I also have three maybes on that list: Tomb Raider, GTA V, and God of War Ascension. I've already got Silver locked up for 2013 too, so I'm stoked for this deal to continue. So stoked.

Many of the titles on this list already are set up in the "old" system. Preorders in both systems will be captured and tracked for this promotion. If you did your preorder in the old system, you are fine. The only way to redeem that preorder will be in the old system. Your transaction will be a return/exchange in the old system. And again, it will track just fine for the promotion as long as it is done correctly at the store.

Any new preorders for titles on the 2013 list HAVE to be done in the new system.

Do note, you will NOT register RZ points from preorders in the new system. The points will post upon pick-up/purchase of the game, after clearing the return window just like they do today. That changes from the "old" system that would credit your preorder purchase but then deduct them when you returned the preorder and purchased the game.

Hoping the changes in the systems make for a cleaner and easier preorder process for everyone.

The policy states they won't do it, so no nothing there will help you. Just show them the ad and hope for the best.

Say it's $39.99 and hope they don't check. They'll give you a "hassle" because they won't PM the coupon.

Anyone get their $20 certs from Resident Evil 6 and/or NBA 2K13 yet? I know that it says 30 days and today is 30 days from when I pre-ordered them but I remember getting the $20 cert from Madden before 30 days.

And awesome that all those games have been added to the $20 promo. But is this official/confirmed or just rumor/speculation right now?

Also, I see The Last Of Us with a June 1st release date. I know that's just a place holder date but I would be shocked if The Last of Us is released before October or November 2013.
