Wow. I pre-ordered The Witcher 2 for less than what Amazon is offering for this supposed deal.

lol i suppose i would be too.

If Game of Thrones was magically going to be priced at $9.99 then yeah I'd be excited too despite the bad review! 8-)

True, its not a great price. But the people expecting that it would be $24.99 are insane. The game has been out 2 months on Xbox. I was expecting $39.99.



The game has been out only 2 months.



Umm regardless of how long the game has been out it was only $44.99 at release. This isn't even the cheapest that Amazon has had it for; in fact at one point TRU had it for $44.99 - $10 discount for ordering online

Deepdiscount.com had it for $34 or $35.99 on release day, but no one has sniffed this price point lately.

Kind of disappointed that I missed Spiderman. I still have Dimensions left over from last Black Friday to play but at 10 bucks I would have picked it up with some gift cards from bing rewards. I was interested in Witcher 2 if it was 30 or less but not at that price. I can wait on Max Payne and nothing else interests me, so I guess I'm out for this goldbox

wow that's the same price newegg had it for pre-orders months ago and is more expensive than TRU had it for pre-orders. Lame

yet u were excited for edge of time, which ign gave a 4.5..i don't get u.


1st of all, lol at thinking IGN is a legitimate source for game scores.
Second, EoT isn't a bad game. People have the preconceived idea that it's a bad game because Spider-Man isn't swinging through a huge city. I get it, you think of Spider-Man you think of swinging around New York. But the combat in the game is solid, and the story, well, doesn't completely suck. Played Parker off as dumber than he is, but I really think it was to make Miguel(Spider-Man 2099) more relevant to the story. Easily worth it at $10.

i only referenced ign because the person referenced the ign review of game of thrones. lol at your failure to notice that and trying to sound smart. the only game reviews i trust other than my own are Mark's from classic game room.

the game might be worth it to u at 10, but personally i'd rather save 10 on a game i dont really want and spend it towards a 20 game that i truly want.

Fair point, I'll concede that one to you. However I stand by the rest of my post. It's a good game as long as you don't go in with your own ideas of what it should be.

I'm right there with you. 11 bucks isn't exactly a savings.

Mad pissed, 48 bucks? The Fuck? MSRP is 60 bucks, but everywhere I'm aware of sold it for 45 at release, so now we've gone up in price, and it's supposed to be a deal? Firing off angry letter to Amazon now. Not just about that specific deal, but all of them lately.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Yeah really, I think Newegg offered that price as a pre-order deal back in March maybe.

Entitled Ethan feels he needs to write a letter to Amazon because they are putting out deals that HE doesnt like.

Yea it would figure. They actually had it marked down to $49.99 a week or so ago? I don't remember exactly, but I remember I was thinking about grabbing a "Like New" version from AWD since it was down to around $32.

I'll bet $40 at the highest. The game is selling extremely poorly and it got less than stellar reviews. I'm sure Amazon has more copies than they want right now. I wouldn't be at all surprised by a $30 price point.

Can't I add it later via DSS?


Yeah but thats an added cost. I had both of them but upgraded to a PX5 during an AMZ lightning deal that was going for $140. The headset is superior to the PX21 and DDS. If you're hardcore into MP it's worth the upgrade.

I'm also hoping for a deal on the 32GB card. I have an 8GB so a 16GB won't be enough of a difference to warrant a purchase.

*edit* Well then, definitely not what I was expecting.
