You kidding me ? Jak 2 is the best !!!!!


I agree. I can't imagine why everyone else hates it.

I thought it was the worst and completely turned me off from the series. Loved Jak 1 but hated how they tried to infuse GTA into it. I didnt even bother with Jak 3 bc of it.


True, Jak 2 did have GTA elements, but I liked it much more than Jak and Daxter. After playing Jak 2, Jak and Daxter felt like a huge step backwards. Of course, it was a step backwards, since that was the first game. No riding vehicles except in designated areas, no hoverboard, no weapons, eco powers only available in certain areas.

These are the old PS2 games with higher res graphics, there is no DLC.

It's not really a step either way. They are completely different from each other. Jak 1 is a straight 3d platformer. Jak 2 and 3 certainly are not.

Want to thank the OP and others who have posted on here. Been a PUR member since it was released and never got a coupon yet. Took print outs of the games listed with uncharted and coupon to a best buy and got all price matched for each one.

Awesome deal. Walked out of GameStop with ICO/Shadow of the Colossus for $9.99 sealed. Both guys behind the counter had no clue about the deal and were shocked that it was even going on. Never played either of these games before, so I'm psyched.

Question that may or may not be a dumb one lol...but if I use the 50 percent trade in bonus for one of these collections, does the bonus count for all my trade ins or just up to the amount that I spend? Like if I'm buying a collection for 15 and bse trade in value comes to 20, do I get 50 percent bonus on all 20 dollars? Or just on 15? Or somethin different? Lol thanks in advance

Most promos have that writing in the small print but most of the time employees will just put the remainder on your power up card or a gift card. Only the real GameStop dicks will force you to use all of it (and in that case just buy a pre owned game and return it for store credit). And to further answer it it will work on all games regardless if it exceeds the total you're buying or not.

That is exactly what happened to me; they put the remainder on the gift card. OR THAT"S WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF THEY DID"NT STIFF ME ON TRADE IN CREDIT. I tried to stack the +50% toward Sony Collections with the Trade 3 for +$10. They only gave me the +$10 and refused to give me the +50% because I wasn't a PRO memeber (silver card) even though the fine print said nothing about being a pro. I only stated you had to be a PUR member. $$$$$$S.

What, all at once? This purchase alone? Or you've saved the most money all together this year?

I think the employee just didn't know that you CAN"T STACK promotions and gave you a BS answer. The system will give you the best one of two deals automatically. In your case it seems you traded games that had very low trade in value.

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

Thanks for letting me know in a better manner than he did. So for the record: Can't stack promos. Got it.

So, having never actually pricematched anything at Best Buy, what's the procedure? Do I grab the games and ask to pricematch at the checkout, or do I pay full price for them and then go to customer service or something?

Got Ratchet and Journey today, bought them with the sony50 code. Still want that coupon to pick up Jak, might just try and pm Best Buy tomorrow for it. What the hell kind of system is it when a dlc game collection gets an instruction book with it and a disk with three HD remastered PS2 games don't?

The total amount I had saved this year, not just in that purchase. It was something like $700-800.

Sorry it is tough to look through 100+ pages. Is the offer still active online? I have the coupon in my PUR active offers. When I go to the website and put the games in cart and try to check out, I put in my PUR number and the code SONY50 and it says code is not valid.

Thanks

The number is complete bull; I really want to know how they make it. As an employee I don't see how people have saved that much money. Mine says I have saved about $900 :roll:

I used my coupon on Sunday. Luckily, Gamestop had all of the collections in stock. I was able to purchase all of them "new" besides inFamous (still had the code intact and was able to redeem the dlc) and Ico/Shadow of Colossus were the display boxes. The guy had no idea this coupon was out and assumed I had used my Powerup rewards points to get the coupon. I wanted to get the Uncharted collection as well but I wasn't too sure if it worked or not since the SKU wasn't listed on the coupon. It was fast and easy I walked out a happy camper, no problems whatsover.
