I was at a Best Buy today and picked up one of two Infamous 2 Hero Editions for $34.99. They were $60 last week. It did not appear to be a managers markdown since this store normally uses yellow handwritten stickers for that and this had a printed shelf tag marked "clearance".

yeah it's a new clearance but no longer YMMV if it's in stock. If any can post a pic of the clearance tag with the price & what store has it at that price other BB's can price match it just by calling the other store. No longer any need to track down a store with the same price.

I cant believe some of these survived the crazy christmas season deals BB had. (i think it was the same price then)

Backlog? What backlog?

I think it was actually even cheaper, closer to $20 IIRC. Many stores in my area were not pricematching the online price at that time since it was a deal of the day.

Oh snap I have a pile of 4 or 5 of these at my local BB, just checked the price last week to see if it dropped. Gotta go get me one, thanks for the heads-up.

I checked my order history. It was $24.99. However, the price dropped to $19.99 a few days later and I received a refund for the difference.

Lol, I feel for you but you can't honestly believe there are people out there trying to get this for the in game extras and soundtrack...the game was $10 last week.

On topic, I thought these were clearanced at $25 last year at BB. I got two at that price.


I want it for the bag. lol

Is there something special about the bag? Anytime a deal on this pops up, that's all anyone ever talks about.

It just looks like the one he has in the game. Supposedly it's decent quality. I just think it would be nice to have.

The bag was very cool. A good size, cool design and a decent color. The patches were a bit much though. I sold mine for 40 after i got my DOTD copy.... Not a day goes by when i don't regret letting that happen. (I have a backpack problem)

I also got this way back when it was on sale and saw there are some in the area. The figure is kind of meh but I do enjoy the backpack as it holds my touchpad and portable gaming/wall plugs for phones. I almost want to buy a second one...

The last one that was in Flower Mound, TX is gone. I did pick up one during the B2G1 sale a few weeks ago for $69.99 so I just went and had a price adjustment and got $37.88 back...just as good I guess :)

Had my eye on the last one in my store for months.... Picked it up this afternoon. Would rather have only paid 20-25, but at 35 someone else would have grabbed it.

The bag still goes for around ~$40 on eBay. Free game and statue if you fell...

BTW, the Towson, MD had 7 of these stacked next to the PS3 demo setup as late as Friday afternoon. I inquired about the price then since the game itself was on sale for $10. It was $34.99 then, but I though it was just on sale since the game was on sale.

They also still have Infamous 2 guides which I thought were pennied out a long time ago.???

I've been using my bag since the sale, love it. Perfect for my Vita, Touchpad or Kindle Fire and a couple of magazines.

i had previously purchased this at around 39.99 at bestbuy. soon after it was about 10-20 for some deal of the day. bb refused to price match so i returned everything for a refund.

in all honestly bag is not that great. it is basically a canvas bag with one pocket. the best thing i liked about it was the sly cooper patch. it is rather cheap but if you paid less than 40 for all i feel you got a good deal. i see a few kids wearing them every now and then and i cant help but to think it's pretty ugly too boot.


i had been searching a long time to get this ce and felt the bag would be the bees knees. i was hunting low and high, bidding on ebay and contacting weirdos through craigslist. finally i picked it up at bb and was ecstatic. i had finally aquired the bag i had been longing for. after about a day i realized how flimsy the bag was. after reflecting on the joy/anger of my hunt, i realized i felt nothing but regret. despite owning the awesome infamous 2 video game, i did not feel happy. there was no feeling of joy. i had already platted the game (as i had picked it up pre-street from target at a discounted rate)

eventually in the end i got a 5.11 sling pack and have been much happier with that


long story short, do not let the hunt fool you, you will be ultimately disappointed with the bag

The $69.99 price tag was still on top of the "pyramid" so most likely you'll be knocking the cobwebs off of them.

Would a 13" MacBook Air fit inside? How about a PS Vita in the smaller pouch? This is what I planned on using for.

I am personally able to hold my 13" Macbook, my Vita, and other stuff like cables comfortably. Same style (Vita in the smaller area, etc)

Got 1 today at the Roseville MI location. They had 3, and I was thinking about getting them all, but I left 2 for whoever really wants them! (btw they were $34.99 as well)
