Wow, Rhythm Heaven Fever will be $5? If that's true than I will jump on that like crazy, so some you guys better not just buy "only 10" copies each to flip. I will be sad then.

Thinking of picking up a couple Batarang controllers for 360. For those who have it do you like it, does it play well, and last long?


Ya I love mine for the ps3 it's the same been using it since February and the only wear is the buttons like the X and O are wearing off but its great.

Why is in-store pickup crap perse? I think it's good in a way, in that if you know you can't get to the store before 2-3pm the day the sale starts you can order something and have it waiting for you. I'll admit it sucks if there's only 1-2 of an item in stock and the store sells out of those before a sale due to people pre-buying. But there's not much you can do other than adapt your buying methods so you get in on the deals.

Okay so if I were to pick up in store, how would i get the price adjustment? will it be automatic or do I have to specifically ask for one?
also I want a game, but it isn't available in any stores close to me. If I were to order online, could I get a price adjustment on the game when it arrives? Is this a good idea?

I agree. I might do this, I want Rayman, and the DefJam Rapstar Bundle, since it's only 9.99. I will be waking up very early, doing in-store pick up, and picking up these games before I go to work.

I'm not gonna bother prebuying. But I will be up at 1:30 am and putting in a store pickup order. If it's already sold out by the absolute start of the sale, then so be it.

also, per se is two words.

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.

I can field this one.

Keep in mind that the sale is valid for seven days. If you were to go ahead and order an item, say, for $29.99, and it arrives before 8/18, yeah, you can get it price adjusted. The problem, though, is that if you used a debit card, since the website is a different entity or whatever, they have to refund the full amount ($29.99) back to your credit card, then charge you the $9.99 sale price (This gets the item back in their inventory then takes it out again). The $29.99 will take a few days to post back to your account.. so essentially, for a few days, you'll be out $39.99.

If you don't mind that, go for it.

You guys are talking me into Rayman Origins. Is it supposed to be pretty good?

Oh hell no!:-# I wonder if Best Buy is pulling stock to hold for the sale or if the pre-buying has started......:-k:hot: Looks like I'll be checking for a DS2 Limited Edition(for Extraction) tomorrow!


I'd be really surprised if that's what was happening, Barbie. I mean, the fixture for the Gaming Blowout already is set up from the first time around and to fully stock it should not take that long. If that happened sometime on Sat. I could see that, but not this early. I guess we need a BB/CAG to chime in to let us know for sure if that was indeed happening. As for me, 4 of the 6 items I wanted were available everywhere around me. The 2 I had a problem with were in terribly short supply though. Tetris-only 1 store anywhere around me had it in stock and that store was 45 minutes away and Rabbids-again only 1 store had it which was 30 minutes away. I'll pick up the 4 on Sunday by the store closest to me and those other 2 will have to wait till Tues. when I will be out in that area anyway. Still, my guess is prebuyers have annihilated stock levels by now and that's why the problem rather than stock being pulled. Any BB workers wanna inform us on what's going on behind the scenes?8-[

Google the names of any games you can't find listings for on the BB website anymore and look for results that say review.bestbuy .com .

I got it for either $10 or $12 a while ago, personally I hated it. The 3D was not done correctly, like it had 'ghosting' issues as well as controls and camera system was terrible. Personally I'd pass on it.

Yeah I've mentioned it a couple pages ago that the SKU is CORRECT but the description was wrong. I will fix the OP now.

Guys not to be a scumbag or anything,

If you were to order these titles now online and get in store pickup, you would get the 10 dollar gift card in your e-mail for picking the games up. After Sunday when the ad is active you go back to price match, do they revoke the gift card they e-mailed you as well or what?

Thanks for the input! Definitely, want to get a pair of these.

If everything I want is still in stock 1:00am Sunday morning, I may do two orders of $50 to get $20 in certs. Thanks alot BB, at this rate I'd be lucky to finish my backlog by 2014.

Yeah. Looks like I'm going to have to get my azz on the ball! Especially if the story about some lady wiping out copies of Rayman(already have this) is true!:-# For now, I'm only gonna get 1 thing, though. Even though my list has gone from 2-3 items to, like, 8 or something.

Not sure if I'm feeling all of the riding around for stuff. I'll try to be online when the sale starts. Maybe online will be stocked with everything!

With as known as this sale has gotten, we're gonna have to have some Game-Show-Quick hands when the sale starts! Start practicing!:rofl:

It just gives hoarders and flippers more options to hoard and flip games,i recall someone mentionig earlier that stock was already being empty at their local store,hopefully bestbuy will do something about this in the future.
