    ∀ Game, ∃ Buy Price

I still cannot believe how many people are desiring Tron. A mediocre at best game that sold like Wii shovelware and includes a cheap plastic prop. I swear I think the world has gone mad.

It reminds me of a saying one of my brother's friends told me many years ago. He said "If I shit on a bun and put a million dollars down beside it, would you eat it?". Guess which is which.....

Women, my wife included, go crazy over $2000 LV handbags, which is not even genuine leather nowadays. If you accept and believe that, wanting a game, however bad it is, and a plastic toy for $10 is not unreasonable at all for men.

Went to Walmart to price match Deus Ex on the 360. Went to the electronics dept. Asked to get Deus Ex price natched to BB. Showed the lady on my phone an she said they don't price match websites yada yada yada. she said if I didn't have the ad they couldn't do a price match. I asked her if we could go to customer service and see what the supe says. They made her call Best Buy to verify the price but then they were out of stock and she had a look about her like he won the argument, I would've had the same feeling had it gone my way. I thanked her and as I wa leaving she decided to give it to me anyways. That made me happy for the day.

2 online price matches at Wal Mart 2 weeks in a row!

May have to go try to get a price match at Walmart for Deus Ex as well. My Walmart is usually pretty awful when it comes to things like that though.

I've had issues getting them to match their own ads before, but I don't have anything to do tomorrow so I may do it just to do it.

What's with the "everyone must hate what I hate" attitude in this thread?

I can not believe how many people desire Nintendo, they're just for children.

I can not believe how many people desire XBOX, they're just full of FPS.

I can not believe how many people desire video games, they need to start acting like adults.

Video games is and will always be subjective.

Unless you're playing Aquaman on Xbox, because that game is just pure trash.

Sims 3 Pets is instock for shipping for 3DS. Not sure if it ever went OOS for it's 4.99 with free shipping.

I've picked up a lot of cool things from the sale. A lot of things undocumented... LocoRoco 2 for PSP is 1.99. The Call of Duty headset for Wii is 4.99. Keep your eyes peeled and don't get tunnel vision when you're in the game section.

Just decided to pick this up for my girlfriend lol.

And if she doesn't like it, I'll get my $5 of enjoyment out of trapping a family in a house without any doors. Take your anger out on the stupid Sims!

Wondering how that "sending from another store" works. My BB claims they can't do that if the item isn't large enough. I'm thinking, just put them in a tote and tape the paperwork to it like you would a small furniture box, but apparently it's easier to put a man on the moon.

Fixed. But yeah, go crazy over those Tron CEs. I'm not in the market, so the frenzy doesn't bother me. I do wonder what those Chinese workers think when they're making and packaging this plastic crap, though. Probably something that translates roughly "all your base will be belong to us."

No.

It's nice! For $20.99, it's a giveaway! If you have interest, get it ASAP! Nice tempered glass doors, too!

Lol. Your post made me glad that I passed on that $5 Sims 3: Pets for XB 360 yesterday. Did pick up Steel Diver, Pilotwings, Metroid: Other M, and Medal of Honor for $25 + tax. And so the backlog grows larger and larger.

Customer service checked to see if there were any in the area. She live chatted with someone from the store and they agreed to "shuttle" it to my store since they couldn't place an OMS order to have it shipped to my house.

This was the 4th employee I talked to about it, so it depends on the person's level of competence/helpfulness. :)

For those of you looking for things that have sold out-

A couple of my local BB's did a restock today after receiving more inventory on their truck last night. Was able to get the Tron CE this morning and that particular store had 2 more left (looks like one other store in town also got 3+ in). Moral of the story... if the store is sold out, find out when they receive their truck for the week and check back the morning after they receive it (or check stock online).

If I'm a pretty big Sims fan, would I enjoy Sims 3 Pets for 3DS? I enjoyed both the console and PC versions of previous Sims games, but have never played one on DS or 3DS. I only recently got a 3DS and as of now I only have one game, so I'm trying to build up my library.

To anyone getting the shelf shipped to your store from another Best Buy be careful. I called Friday, and had a store agree to send one to my store for me, and put my name on it.

Yesterday afternoon I checked, and my store magically had one in stock. So I called, and asked if it had my name on it or anything. It didn't, and when I went up there to pick it up they had already sold it to some other guy five minutes before I got there. What a bunch of assholes.
