There we go. The 8am deal is a pair of Turtle Beach X32s for $65.

Those are the exact pair I want but they're still too pricey for me. :(


The constant "hiss" described in the reviews should make you want them considerably less.

From what I've hear/read that's primarily when the game is 100% silent and when you're in-game and anything is happening, you can't notice it.

I don't know. I just need a good gaming headset so the TV doesn't wake up my girlfriend when she falls asleep on the couch. :/

Was hoping for a cheap pair for X12's

These don't seem worth it from the reviews.

To be fair, I'm always skeptical of headphone reviews. I've used a few headsets for gaming and out of all of them, really like my TB PX21s and TB P11s (I use these on my PC and backup PS3). Both of which people have complained about "hiss" if you read the reviews. Haven't had any problems with either. Yeah, if you crank the mic volume up way high, you're going to hear some background hiss, especially with other people's microphones. But I've never heard any audio hiss in my PX21s.

I agree with being judicious about the price points, because as a CAG I've always bought mine on sale. But headsets are one of those things you really need to test out before buying if you can.

I was on the waitlist for Spiderman: Edge of Time for about an hour and a half and wih 5 minutes to go before the lightning deal ended, it let me add it to my cart and is already shipping soon. Cool beans.

This is true, it is a highly subjective area. However, if you're accustomed to using higher end headphones for music, the hiss will definitely be apparent and probably a bother.

Nah, this has been Amazon's method of choice for some time. I think the earliest I remember seeing it was on an Assassin's Creed II Gold Box deal a few years ago. Item goes into your cart at regular price, then Amazon adds a gift card/promotional discount credit that is automatically applied during payment selection. However, there is a checkbox there. I'm not sure why they would do that instead of instantly applying the savings. But yeah, it's SOP for Amazon.


Thanks for the info!

Oh MAN. Perfect timing on the Turtle Beaches.

I was looking into universal headsets and know that game audio works on these for PS3, just not chat (without adapter). Was gonna jump on the PX21 at B&H for 55, but saw these babies pop up!

Now if I want, I can just get the Amigo 2 and be good. 45 out the door (had rewards points) for this!

$10 for a game that you can finish in a couple of days and potentially flip for $16 ($16.80) at BB is a pretty damn good deal

If you play it on easy, maybe. I played through it on Hard and had it last a good 14+ hours. That game is DIFFICULT.

God I hope they have a good price on the witcher 2, I'm hoping for 30-35 bucks and ill bite, since I have it on pc already. By the way everyone that is considering buying max payne, I would suggest watching gameplay because the game isn't anything like the old max payne, hell it isn't really much of a game at all more like an interactive movie.


After renting Max Payne 3 from Redbox when it came out, I'm definitely going to wait for it to drop. All of the film noir atmosphere, humor, and inventive art design is gone. This one plays it straight and in the process becomes just another third person perspective shooter, albeit well executed one.

on reg, it's about 11 hours. That's plenty of gaming for me. I don't need 60+ hours.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

The one time I accidentally go back to sleep and wake up at 10am, and amazon actually has a $9.99 game. I am so desperate I have been on the waitlist and highly doubt I will get the chance to buy it for that price. A waste of 50 minutes on the waitlist.


$10 for garbage is $30 more than what it's worth.

max payne has to be beat on hard, hardcore, oldschool, new york minute and new york minute hardcore. that's just to finish the single-player portion. that's not even touching multiplayer. that game has lots of content.

If you're achievement whoring, you'll have to beat Max Payne 3 in NYM Hardcore in 1 sitting without dying. You die, you start the whole game over :)

I had the x21 before. They're ok but you might as well save up for a lightning deal on another headset that has surround sound. There's a difference.

Yeah, and there are some really difficult sections that are challenging even on normal. (Dang AI with pistol sniping skills...)

Aw crap!

I just started playing Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions last night and was thinking to myself - "This is pretty great! I should try to find a cheap copy of Edge of Time next."

Lo and behold, it was $9.99 this morning and I missed it! :lol:

Oh well!

You don't say. Hmm....14 + is good for me. i thought the game was shorter than 10 hours thats what i've been hearing on youtube.

Lol. That sounds low to me. I'm guessing it's going to be $40, but I won't complain with anything lower. Thing is, I've been stalking this game on Amazon and it hasn't even once reached $40 yet so that's why $35 seems low to me.

Like I said though, I won't complain. :)
