Probably not since they are technically different items (SKU wise).

Thank you. I guess I'm sol. The local walmarts are sold out so no in store pickup from walmart.com.

Will I be able to use a vanilla copy to play the dlc after installing from the goty?

Was it a mistake or did you just change your mind on the system you want it on?

I don't even have a ps3. I've looked for two copies for the x360 since bestbuy's early black friday. The orders were cancelled by bestbuy.com and then sold out.

I was able to pm @ walmart and get one copy. That's the best I accomplished.

If it had split-screen, it wouldn't be an issue. We are more "couch co-op" gamers.

I think I may end up returning Doom 3 BFG to gamestop, I'd like to finally play through Doom 2/3 (I only ever played the first) but I doubt I will get to it anytime soon

I might just sell them off for $52 each (they both have the Nuketown preorder maps included if that makes any difference) and use it towards the Vita.

Might not make a difference but those Nuketown maps might not catch as much as before since Nuketown is only available during certain times now.

Ah the Mists of Pandaria CE is $35, I got the regular for $15 at Best Buy that's supposed to be here tomorrow.. debating on whether to get this and return the regular version. Are the extras worth $35 compared to a regular $15 version?

Got my Killzone/Dualshock combo pack from Best Buy today and when I opened it, I saw that both discs were labeled "Killzone 3". Anyone run into this?

If it doesn't say it on the back cover then it doesn't come with one.

Only some of them come with one. It'll say so on the back of the box. Just wondering, when does it say that your vouchers of Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta expire?

They haven't updated the calendar and I don't see any on the deals list, so it's possible.

Did you pull the no receipt thing ?? Asking as I am trying to figure out whether to trade in my Forza with Amazon or try to exchange with Walmart.

Yep.. I picked up a few Monster High sets for my wife for 50% off, and also motorstorm apocalypse for $15, Journey collection and the devil may cry collection for around $15 each, but that was about it across all websites.

True but, I remember a few years ago getting a bunch of deals on Cyber Monday. I guess I expect too much

Black Friday this year was meh for the most part, I did nab a number of deals though

hey guys, I just realized my NFS most wanted from BB doesn't say LIMITED EDITION on it (even though the listing says LE) like the pic on Amazon's website. Are they all LE or did I get a vanilla. (crap!)

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.

You got a vanilla. I was worried about that as the description still says Limited Edition but the picture they are showing is of the new vanilla cover art. I'm pretty shocked they sold out of their LEs as every retailer I went to over the weekend only had LEs in stock. I am assuming they will be sending me the vanilla as well. That's disappointing considering how many other places had it in stock for the same price.

Thanks.

I'm gonna visit my local best buy and exchange it if possible since the packing slip clearly says Limited Edition.

Got my Borderlands 2 from Amazon that I ordered late Saturday night.

Forza from the MS Store should be here tomorrow.

As for the NFS Most Wanteds go, can't you find a LE in store then return the vanilla with the LE receipt? Unless of course, you opened it....

I got my GTA IV Complete and Assassins Creed: Revelations today from Best Buy. I still have a ton of crap being delivered later today from Amazon, as well as my LBP 2 Move bundle which BB shipped through UPS. After that, I think the only straggler left is my order from WWEShop.

Received my Dead Island GOTY from Bestbuy this past Saturday that I had ordered on Monday (via the Silver Member preview). The funny thing is that it shipped out on Tuesday, the 2 Blu Rays I ordered that were backordered, shipped out Thursday and I got them on Friday.. Baffled me...

On my Walmart order, I've received notification that 3 of the 8 games I ordered Friday evening have shipped. The games shipped are Dance Central 3, BF3 Premium, and COD WaW. Still waiting on Rachet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Sly Collection, Gran Turismo 5, and COD: Black Ops. Hope those other go out of processing...

**EDIT**
Wow, In typing that message the status on a bunch of the games changed and I suddenly have a tracking number.. Only game left in processing is Jak and Daxter Collection.

I'm really looking forward to playing those collections as I pretty much skipped the entire PS2/Xbox 1 generation due to actually trying to pass college and not screw off. From what I've read and heard, they are really good.
