Ugh, the Blops controllers are terrible. Got two of each for each system.

The two for PS3 won't hold a charge, and one of them drops its signal every few minutes.

One 360 has a control pad that is not sensitive enough to pressure. The other one seems fine so far!


Hopefully thats not the case with my ps3 controller. Ive seen reviews on youtube and everyone basically loved them.

Ps3 version has stereo sound. 360 would be the winner i would assume.( I however have it ps3, so that's not a biased statement)


Thanks. Hadn't heard that Rayman Origins PS3 audio was "gimped", so I Googled it. Someone on GameFAQs claimed the 360 only has stereo tracks, too. So far haven't read a post from someone who said they had both and compared the actual output (vs. what's on the box).

It's already started happening with my PS3 controller soon after I started using it. Like buttons have to be pressed several times before it clicks and it sticks, the analog sticks get stuck on options or letters and moves all over the place. It's been pretty great for gameplay though but still lagging a bit. I'm just wondering if it's because it needs to be charged.

Well thats good to hear. To get a wireless controller for $10 is great imo, even if there is some side effects.

I know it's slim pickens but I might go to one of the downtown BB after work to see what's left. I would like a western RPG or shooter since I haven't played any before. Hopefully they still have some $5 and $10 games left that's decent.

The Bloomington, IL still had a decent stock yesterday...including Rayman. Too bad it didn't have DR2:OTR...the only game I wanted that I couldn't track down.

Stay away from my store! :booty:

Did you see Rayman for PS3 or 360? I wanted it for PS3, but they only had 360 copies left.

Just a lone 360 copy. I didn't glance at the PS3 games much.

Great. Would appreciate your feedback on which version is the best and why, and whether I should take a special trip tomorrow to pick up the PS3 version over the 360 and Wii versions.

(Yes, I know this requires opening and playing them all this morning, but it's your chance to give back to your fellow CAGs! :)



8-) I've already Flipped the 360 and Wii versions.

Ps3 is the one to keep IMO. Rayman is a classic 2d platformer (The game is challenging and requires execution) and the Dualshock's Directional Pad makes me feel right at home.

Slightly disappointed there wasn't a significant restock of the more popular titles but I guess that's to be expected since they're trying to get rid of them. I imagine they aren't making a significant profit but I know next to nothing about the relationships Best Buy has with the distributors.

It's actually not gimped, but I heard that the 360 version outputs Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, while the PS3 instead outputs dolby 7.1 pcm. So if you have a receiver that accepts that format of surround, the PS3 has better audio. It's just that most of us only have dolby digital 5.1 setups and so the ps3 version defaults down to stereo if our settings aren't 7.1, which makes people think it is inferior. Not sure why they didn't offer the more common 5.1 on ps3. If you just use your tv speakers, it doesn't matter which you get.

Graphically, I personally thought the 360 picture was more vibrant and cartoony, while the ps3 was a little more earthtone and darker. So the 360 version seemed more appropriate for this style of game.

You're right, I misjudged. You're not someone who buys games at retail with the sole intention of selling them to a stranger for a profit. You buy games at retail with the sole intention of selling them to children in your family for a profit. My bad.

Surprised I still see 10-20 copies of America's Test Kitchen Let's Get Cooking! in each store I go to this late. Sure it's pretty much just an interactive digital cookbook, but for $1.99 you can give it a try or give out as cheap gifts.

Went to the Walden Galleria Best Buy to pick up Rayman for Vita with the ad. Cashier called over the "gaming guy" who looked at the ad and said " it is only good for the wii version" i said, "no, it clearly states that pricing is good for all available platforms." He snottily replied," well, the vita version is too new. It isnt part of the sale."
I said " according to the ad, it is. But whatever."
Drove over to the Best Buy on Transit Ave, grabbed an ad and the game and went to the checkout. Cashier says she loves the game and rang it up. Told her that according to the ad it should be $10. She looked at the ad, said," yes, it should." She did a few key strokes on the terminal and the price adjusted to $9.99. Didnt need a manager override or anything.
So screw you galleria gaming guy. I hate employees who act like the money deducted from the thing they are selling is coming out of their pockets.

I had the exact same experience at my best buy in Eastvale CA. I ended up going for a big drive and figured I'd try my luck at another best buy I was passing no problem.
