I went ahead and got this: http://www.bestbuy.c...l psp&lp=1&cp=1
...as the price will be RAISED by $3 during the 'sale'. Outlet or not, not paying $3 more after seeing the price.

I have it, it's the same quality as the Tron controllers. I like it a lot. There's a red glow around the thumbsticks which is a bit unfortunate but the controller itself is fantastic. I don't even use wireless controllers anymore.

Aye, I default to them for almost every cable I need. And they've recently started adding other things of interest, like mechanical keyboards and surround sound systems.

Thin HDMI cables became a necessity due to some routing issues I've got in my current setup, which is the only reason I went with the link at Amazon. You can be sure I checked Monoprice first to see if they had an equivalent.

I bought my sister one of their drawing tablets and she really likes it.
I tried it myself and it seemed to work pretty well.
Not a Wacom but felt nice.

So everything in the OP is deals for next week? Any news on 360 promotions? I'm thinking of picking one up this weekend but I can wait if there's a deal going on.

Heeheehaha, J/K!


Today I am 40. That stings a little.

Speaking of being old, and gameshows, and this sale, does anyone know what the difference is between Price is Right Decades, and the earlier Price is Right game for the Wii? Mom's birthday coming up, and this seems like something she'd enjoy. I bought her the last one for xmas a couple years back, and she enjoyed it, even though it looks like hot garbage to me.

Anybody have any opinions on the Black Ops controller? I need an extra for the lady so we can play 360 together, and am not looking for anything exceptional, just something that works and is functional.

No. It is for 3 weeks from now.

^ Thanks for all your input. I might order one since my PS3 controller has been randomly pressing buttons for months and nearly deleted something (even though I've been charging it by usb through my laptop fine as of last night).

For those looking at :ds:Rhythm Heaven for $9.99, there is a third party seller on Amazon who has it for $7.15 and it's fulfilled by Amazon so it's FSSS/Prime eligible as well.


Thank you for this. Saved me some bucks.

I'm not really worried about these games seLling out like everyone else. For one nothing on the list is a must buy for me as I already have Rayman. Second is this sale isn't flip friendly like the last one so El Hordo may stay home for this one.

Yeah a lot of the games still only sell for ~$15 on Amazon so it is a pretty hard way to make any money trying to resell them on ebay. Since the TIV are low for many of them it should keep bulk buys low also.

Many of these items are already not available at the store level in my area. Crazy, as the sale hasn't started yet. Must be a lot of CAG members here XD

I used to think the same thing. But there's plenty of hoarders on here too.

I agree with cancerman though that this isn't a flip worthy sale so maybe local best buys are just holding back for the sale date.

I see no problem with that strategy. Some are for it while others think it is low down. If you are buying for personal use then go for it. I have 4 games in my cart since the list was leaked and they are still all available at one of the Best Buys. I am actually hoping to get mine shipped since it is a 43 mile round trip to that BBY and with gas currently $3.91 it would cost me almost $8 to get them. Free shipping with Silver (hopefully everyone gets FS on this sale) is nice when my closest BBY cannot fill an order.

I actually went to the SD thread when only the partial list had been posted that had the Rayman deal. Their thread was only about 3 pages long and there was a good handful of people on that site who couldn't find any in their area and were saying stuff like 'damn hoarders!'. So I think that's just a problem everywhere really.

I think Price is Right Decades came out afterwards in 2011, and if she liked the first one, then by all means go ahead and get it.

Something to look out for is the fact that Best Buy is clearancing the Wheel of Fortune / Jeopardy Gameshow Funpack for $14.99. I have the Wheel of Fortune version, and it's really well done, assuming your mom likes WoF and Jeopardy

Use this link here to see if its near you for pick up.

Mostly because Blowout 1.0 was really just December 2011 Sales 2.0.

This new sale has some new faces on the list.

I'm underwhelmed, but it's still a decent sale. I'll probably pick up a few 3DS games, but I don't know about much else.
