Anybody see any good deals for Resident Evil 6 or Zone Of Enders HD for PS3?


Gamestop is doing the buy 2 get 1 free. You can certainly get those used and get a free game out of it. Other than that some places had Resident evil 6 for 25 new but maybe that was the 360 version.

Anyways my question is. How are the headphones that are 35 bucks? Anyone have experience with them. I really needed something thats surround sound but these seem to resemble surround sound. Anyone reccommend these? By the way I'd mostly use them for my laptop so it doesnt matter if its the 360 or ps3 version.

The main page says Diablo III is cheapest at gamestop for 29.99, but the main spoiler tab shows 39.99. My gamestop rip off alarm says its 39.99. Is there any hope for 30? Thats what I have been waiting for.

Must've gotten my wires crossed on Batman AC GOTY, but swore it was on the $10 shelf of games. Don't remember seeing it on 360 or PS3 at WalMart.

I thought that the Assassin's Creed Vita bundle was going to be the Gold Box Deal of the Day. It looks like a camera is instead. Anyone know what's going on at this point? Or am I totally misinformed? (It wouldn't be the first time!)

My Target had 100+ 1600 points cards, but I still felt like an El Hoardo grabbing 8 of them. All the design in the ad, all rang up at $10 automatically.

Long as you use them on your own account and not resell them I don't see it anything like El Hoardo since it's basically free goddamn money to use on games.

Those of you that braved WM, are you seeing any previously unadvertised games on sale?

Or is it basically the list of games from the OP?

Thanks

Don't remember seeing any games that weren't advertised on sale.

As for my Black Friday haul, I ended up with $25 Borderlands 2 and $10 Gran Turismo 5 XL at Walmart. And I got the $200 Super Slim PS3 bundle (replacement for dying fatty) and $30 Dead or Alive 5 from Gamestop.

I was worried about the Walmart horror stories, but the one I went to had lines to tables with the games. It was 2 games per person and if you want more, you had to go to end of line. Different lines for separate systems. No stampeding and people were generally patient. Lines were ridiculously long though. Friend had to go through alot to get a tv. He had to get in line to get the ticket, line to pay for ticket at register, then a final line to pick-up tv from back of store outside.

So does Target quiet down at any random times during the night? The XBLA points are tempting but I really don't want to brave the rush; I am sure if I wait to go later they'll be gone, but it's not worth my time if I have to stand in a 3 hour line to buy a few point cards... ;)

I was thinking if they've been open for hours already maybe everyone who wanted to go has been?

I went around 2 a.m. and it was a ghost town, to the point where I wondered if they were open when I was walking up. They said it was craziness around 9 p.m., but at 2 a.m. it was pretty much me and the employees.

When is the best time to go to Walmart between 7 AM and 1 PM? The earlier the better?

I'm looking to pick up Need for Speed Most Wanted, XCOM, and possibly GT5 XL, Red Dead, and God of War Saga.

I had quite the adventure on BF, but I think BF is fun so I enjoyed it. My brother and I started by going to Walmart at 10:00 and it was really crowded. We looked at the games but didn't find anything we wanted so we came home. Then I got on here and saw that the $10 1600 MSP deal still worked, so we went back out to do that after grabbing the ad from the paper. Rather than going back to Walmart though, we went to a Target near a mall my friends were meeting me at. They didn't have any left (though they might have had some by the registers but we didn't look too hard).

Then, I parted with my brother to go to a different Walmart that was closer to the mall we were at while he went with my friends. They had plenty of point cards but the checkout person said they could only override 1 of them. Saddened, I went back to the mall and found my brother and friends and looked around a bit. We didn't get anything so we decided to head back to the original Walmart from the very beginning.

They had plenty of point cards too. So we asked the electronics department people and they said the override would lock down their computers or something. That seemed kind of stupid, so we decided to PM up front to see if would get any difference. Finally they let us do it. For some stupid reason it took her nearly 15 minutes to do 4 points cards because she screwed up somehow. And after all that... I think I'm going to go back later today to get 3 more since it's such an amazing deal.

Denied on the 1600 point card. Bummer. Would've loved to pick up a couple, especially considering I didn't really get much otherwise.

I returned to Walmart to PM the MSP from Target's card. I forgot to do it when I was already there. The lady did the override, but she seemed to have difficulty the first time doing it. I hope she activated them correctly. I don't have a 360 yet, so I can't try to activate them myself. For the people that did the override, do the points work for you? And is there any other way to check, besides activating them on an Xbox?

Good luck finding what you want if you didn't go already tonight. Both Walmarts I went to today had practically all the Black Friday games gone around 10pm. So earlier in case what you want still might be at your local Walmart.
