I know Joystiq reported this about a week and half ago.

Ok, I just saw it on the Club Nintendo website. Better start registering my old games.

Hey, can I use my Target employee discount at another store? I work with my ex. She works electronics 9 days out of 10. I know she'd get judgmental and harass me over buying "another video game."

I picked up UMvC3 today for Vita. I hadn't gotten Ultimate yet, just MvC3 for the 360, regular edition and had not gotten Shuma or Jill, because honestly they didn't really interest me enough to pay $10 for them. However, I did notice on the back of the box it said "50 characters*" and at the bottom with the "*" it mentioned that 2 of the characters are DLC. Mind you, it didn't say "Paid" DLC, the way it reads to me is that you just need to download them.

I understand if you had them for the PS3, you get them for free on Vita, but the wording on the box doesn't mention anything about the full 50 costing extra. Am I missing something here, or is Capcom just being Capcom again (between both box text errors and gouging for DLC)? I'm not going to be heartbroken, but if I'm due two more "free" characters I'd like to get them.

I traded in a few games Saturday. I got rid of Call of Duty 3, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds, and Dirt 3. I got $48.30.

Base value was $5 each. $8 for Dirt 3. Three of them were so old they didn't have trophies. And I bought Dirt 3 for $15 at BB. They actually paid me $1.80 to hold onto the game since Black Friday. :lol:

I had $100 worth physical copies of games I got digital version for through PS+ that I was considering trading in too. I decided that day I was more interested in collecting games than the money I could get for them, so I held onto them.

If the Vita version is like the console Ultimate version then Jill/Shuma are not included and need to be purchased to use them in game but if you bought them for the normal game you automatically get them for Ultimate I believe, or at least that is what my friend told me when he bought Ultimate for 360

Yeah you have to purchase the DLC if you don't already own them for the console versions. I thought the two characters missing would have reasonable prices like two or maybe three dollars a piece but nope it's ten freaking bucks for the remaining two. Ridiculous.

This would be a good deal:

Reward Zone Gamers Club [Unlocked] Members:
Posted Image Get $20 in Reward Zone Certificates with Pre-Order and Purchase of THESE Games


Except for this fine print:

Points will post to your account approximately 30 days from time of pickup or shipment.

So I pre-order the game well ahead of time, I then go back to the store and buy the game, then I have to wait 30 days before you give me the $20 off you promised me for pre-ordering the game?!

I guess you give it a few months and do this frequently and it starts working but it seems like a lot of work. I'd expect to want to buy something and see that I need to wait another week to get my $20 off and that would piss me off.

Well you can thank all the abusers for the loss of instant credits BB has adjusted accordingly. Also, it's a pre-order/purchase deal so you can't blame them for trying to ensure the purchase part is not at risk due to returns. If your taking advantage of all the current killer game deals that are ongoing you should still see a steady flow of RZ points posting.

If I'm not mistaken, based on the weekly ad and the site, max payne 3 is $50 for 360 and pc only.

the site doesn't include the pS3 version either but looking at the ad there's a "T" which is coded underneath the games as "available on more platforms" this should be enough to get the match.

That's how I read it. You receive the points/certificate ONLY after you pay for it in full and pick-up the game. Hope this helps...

Seems like this is the time to pick up a Vita if you haven't already. Unless, that is, you are holding out for a price drop. 8-)

If you play the $20 credit pre-order deal out it net $240 in credit, on top of the pm's or trade in credit or cash thru CL. Follow the 5 for $100 strategy & BB will pay for the vita along with games, memory card + the PS3/X360 games you get too.

Uh...there's an asterisk next to the posted $49.99 price in the Target ad that says "Other platforms available", or something to that extent.

The PS3 version doesn't have the discount on the Target website though. The PS3 version of Battlefield 3 does though, so MP3 not having the discount is likely a mistake. Still, it might be a problem if the BB rep sees it.

thx the info: picked up the same titles, LOL.

while @ TRU, i saw that $9.98 clearance wii/ x360/ ps3 games are on sale 2/$15. checked only wii (shovelware-ish but some good stuff like 'deblob2' and 'jimmie johnson'), but titles seem to be available on other 2 platforms as well. YMMV.
