I saw the SW:TOR marked down to $89.99 at a local store as well...may be universal?

That could very well be. I know in order to kinda check if a drop was universal I would do a store search for different areas outside of mine and check their clearance link on the BB website. That's how I noticed one of the DBZ games for $20 and a few others that I posted on the price drop thread.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Sarcasm-Just one of the many services I offer.

Anyone else starting to question the value of @Gamer coupons when the item goes on sale the next month for what you paid after coupon? I am specifically referring to Assassins Creed: Revelations ($9.99 on 7/22) and Resistance 3 ($9.99 on 7/20). I think there have been several other similar instances recently.


Sales happen. Get used to it. You are getting the game for the same price but a few weeks/months earlier.

Also, let me know when Deadliest Warrior is free/$5 and SSX/SCV/KOA is $10 each on sale...It'll be about a year or so and in that time I would have enjoyed them a lot. The mag is $1.25 per issue when you subscribe to it for a year, so I don't see the big deal.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

No, coupons are just a bonus, the 10% bonus to TiV and 10% discount on used pays for the subscription fast enough to not worry about the value of @gamer.
I was looking for a website for ass gaming, but I found this one instead.

VERY YMMV. Best Buy does not match bundles and they consider any Buy this get that a bundle.

Ugh final fantasy 13-2 keeps knocking at my door. When I'm tempted to get it I pass on it. Should I bite on it ?


I think at $15, FF-13-2 should be good buy because BB also has the extra Novella book with it.

Dude! You just guaranteed this thread will go past 50 pages by providing this nugget of knowledge, it'll be full of speculation, ymmving, dealmongering and obsession.

Best Buy is killing my bank account. My backlog gets bigger and bigger each month. Makes me wonder what their Black Friday deals will be like this year.

Yes, it is part of the Weekly Ad, I put source from circular.
The ad states its available in store and online but we won't find out until the sale starts.

I want Metroid, FFXIII-2, and Assassin's Creed. Hopefully KOA:R will be back in stock by then too. I hope my replacement gift card comes in the mail by then too. It'll be great if my store is still doing the half off some games because a couple of them are on that list for sure....

Black Friday will just be every game from the first half of this year/last half of last year, free with purchase of new game.

Coupons are a way to give people good deals and clear out stock. They have to move on to the next thing if they don't move enough units. I'm ok with that. Some things have been wiped out or drawn down enough to not shown up again (B:AC, likely Amalur) and the things that have been repeated have been at great price points earlier than other retailers. I've been able to buy, play through, and resell most of those for a profit, inc. AC: Rev and Resistance 3.

RE:ORC and FF XIII-2 must be absolute flops. Huge discounts everywhere. Even Sony Style, which rarely offers anything under MSRP, is trying to get rid of XIII-2.

Whats the PM policy on clearance items (if this turns out to be clearance) if you bought the items from BB recently - does it work just like a normal price match when an item goes on sale or do they not pricematch clearance items?

Eh, at this point I'd saying you're playing it with a hope that it ends and makes sense. Then you see 3 announced and you're playing it to keep up. It's very weak in my opinion, some parts absolutely lost me and purgatory type place is asinine.

Found it to be the worst of the 3, and the tower defense parts were okay to do once or twice. But I did what I had to do to make sure I never had to do them that much...

Storywise, it wraps up Ezios story and Altair's, but not much was done with Desmond other than a backstory based on the collectables in the game.

Who other then best buy has had a sub $30 sale on RE: ORC?


Edit: and I'm pretty sure the MSRP of FF XIII-2 is now officially $19.99 while RE: ORC is still $49.99. Now I was disappointed with RE: ORC but it's tough to call a game that has sold millions of copies a flop
