I'm not sure, since the game wasn't on my radar when it originally released. 2K did release a GOTY edition a year later after its original debut.

It was 39.99 MSRP at release too...The game was under most people's radar.

While this 20$ credit is good all of these games will get cheap fast except for mabye halo 4 and black ops 2. I'll just play some older games in my backlog untill the games I want on this list drop in price


Yeah but if you are a silver member it is almost a no brainer unless you want to pay less than $20. A 60 day PM window on these games almost guarantees a $20 RZ cert AND a cheaper game. If you are waiting for sub $30 that just may not happen for 6-8 months on everything but AC. And we do not even know if that is going to happen since the game has so much hype behind it. I know many of you are not silver but I plan on using it to he fullest this fall. I plan on getting Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, Dishonored, ACIII, BLOPSII, ad HALO 4. Since it is all trade credit I plan to spend max about $30 game + tax. For some I would not be surprised to get them for $20. Yeah waiting will always see a price drop but some of these I plan on playing and trading also making them even cheaper to get.

Question for the BB experts here:

I don't have Unlocked, but I preordered Halo 4 today. If I get Unlocked before release, will I be able to make sure my account get the $20 cert?

If you are not a Gamers Club Unlocked member at time of pre-order, you must join in-store prior to game pickup or shipment. If you join on day of in-store pickup, enrollment must be on the same transaction as game pickup and member number must be provided to be eligible. If you join after game pickup or shipment, you will not be eligible to receive an award for that title.

Just make sure your unlocked before you pick-up the game. The quoted section is pulled from the terms and condition of the offer.

Please provide Reward Zone member number at time of pre-order and pickup.

I also want to add that you must be a reward zone member at least when you placed the pre-order though. You need to have the reward zone member number tied to your pre-order deposit receipt. It is so the system can track that you pre-ordered, and when you upgrade to unlocked it will still be tied to the same reward zone membership number.

How about Farcry 3? Being an Ubisoft game, can we expect it to drop in price (almost) as quickly as ACIII? How fast did Farcry 2 drop?

So if we pre-ordered Assassin's Creed III weeks ago with the Steelbook case offer does this still apply, or do we need to cancel and redo?

Also I just pre-ordered Halo 4 in-store and took home a kick-ass 11x17 Litograph. It's also offered online but you can get it now instead of waiting for the game to release.

That's my conundrum with the possible USA freedom edition. If ubi has learned they will tone down production numbers, if not you could have a 150 CE selling for $50 in a few months.

Honestly I think they do it on purpose, they probably sell BETTER that way, in waves.

I'm definately in for Black Ops 2. I don't know about the others tho. AC and Farcry 3 will drop fast enough. Maybe borderlands 2... but they liked their goty edition, so i might just wait, but idk!
This deal is alot better than the 5/100 deal and fingers crossed it would all work out last year.

Remember the Borderlands 2 pre-order will come with the Mechromancer character when she releases for free. Sounded like Randy Pitchford said it would cost like $10-15 for her otherwise since adding a new character is not an easy process. The DLC for Borderlands was really good (other than Mad Moxxi) and I did not feel ripped off from it. Plus it is on sale all the time so if you are patient you can get it cheap.

In reality, I do not mind purchasing many of these day 1 because I want them to continue making great games. It also does not hurt to pre-order and then cancel if reviews are bad or you lose interest. You cannot get this offer the following week so I am just pre-ordering everything I think I want and will decide that week.

I might be wrong, but I think there's an option to print out a copy of the receipt from when you placed the preorder.

Wow people have a hard time understanding. It is one $20 reward zone cert per member per title. Here are some examples:

I buy Dishonored. I get $20.

I buy 2 copies of Halo 4. I get $20 (only one reward zone cert per title)

I buy one copy of Dishonored and one copy of Halo 4. I get $40 total.

I buy 11 copies of Assassins Creed. I get $20 and am weird.

I buy one copy of every eligible title. I get $220 in reward zone certs.


What about buying 1 copy of AC3 for 360 and 1 AC3 for ps3?

Is it $20 per console version or per title?

This is why I made out like a bandit with the 5 for $100 deal last year. Well that and the fact they accidentally gave me two extra $100 certificates. I didn't pay full price for any of the games (between launch date price matches and price adjustments) and got back like $20 on each one. Well... as I said, glitches aside I got $20 back on each one. If we count the glitch I got 5 brand new games, and a new Xbox 360 Gears of War edition slim for spending like $150 in gift cards that I got from trading in games.


How about Farcry 3? Being an Ubisoft game, can we expect it to drop in price (almost) as quickly as ACIII? How fast did Farcry 2 drop?


Farcry 2 was kind of a flop so may not be best comparison.

Nice news on Assassin's Creed III, I already pre-ordered that to get the steel book. Pre-ordered Halo 4 on Saturday to get the lithograph that they are giving out. It's actually really nice, I fully intend to find a frame for it.

People don't forget BB will most likely extend the price match policy till mid Jan. just like they did last yr even if you're NOT SILVER. I think it goes into effect around mid late Oct. so most of the AAA titles will be covered.

Crap, I misplaced my AC3 pre-order receipt.
But if it's listed on my RWZ account should I still be okay?

Print the duplicate receipt off the myrz site.

What about buying 1 copy of AC3 for 360 and 1 AC3 for ps3?

Is it $20 per console version or per title?

If your trying to get more than 1 $20 credit on the same title it's time to get a 2nd RZ account. Get one for your wife/GF/sis/bro/mom/dog whoever it'll pay off in the short & log run.

While this 20$ credit is good all of these games will get cheap fast except for mabye halo 4 and black ops 2. I'll just play some older games in my backlog untill the games I want on this list drop in price

Isn't that the whole point get the games at the cheaper price but still have the pre-order credit to further reduce the other titles in the cycle. The only way this deal will be beat is those people who will use the b2g1 coupons during BF but a savvy CAG will still make out better in the long run if purchasing alot of titles since the credits will really add up.

$240 is ALOT & selling the games on CL for $50 cash is really easy during the holidays(at least it was for me since it's $10 cheaper & no tax on the spot). There's no other way to basically have BB pay you to buy games on day 1 & you make a nice profit + end up with enough credit to make a big ticket purchase cheap.

from all u guys who did these preorders in the past what is the percentage usually 4 when another competitor has a sale on a new release game in the first month? would like to get in on this but if theirs no price match involved the its like 40$ including tax basically not really that great of a deal.

99.9% but if your silver 100%. The only game last yr during the 5 for $100 that really took forever was the one which we all thought would be the 1st casualty- Rage.

hey htz, do borderland games tend to drop price fast like assassins creed games?

COD games were the last titles that could hold there price for longer periods of time & that's ended b/c of competition from other shooters MOH/BF3 & how far into the gen we are.

on this note wal mart allows i think three games to be returned a year without receipt. so you can get a 65 dollar wal mart gift card which is really as good as cash in many ways.


Last time I did a return without receipt at Walmart I had to jump through hoops just to get the return.
