Yeah, that's why I put sales in quotes lol. Just wanted to know if there was anything decent anywhere, looks like cyber Monday is dead, if no retailers are going to utilize it. Sucks about Amazon especially, being such a large online retailer. I sent them an email voicing my dissatisfaction.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

blah, missed every skyrim sale... meh guess ill wait for the GOTY


Well, Newegg still has it for $30 which is I believe the second lowest price it's ever been (not counting MS's $10 one) after the $25 price point.

You might as well either get it for $30 or sometime next year for 20 or 25. If they even bother releasing a GOTY version, it won't be until at EARLIEST next Christmas. That's when the next Xbox comes out. Then we'll be looking at at LEAST a full year for the GOTY to be $30, so that's two years away and by then most people won't even want it since the Xbox 720 will be a year old and probably have all kinds of holiday bundles. Possibly Elders Scrolls 6 will be out then or the year after. I actually kind of wonder if they'll even bother doing a GOTY version. They probably will but eh...who knows. I know they have at least one or two more pieces of DLC left and they're not exactly releasing them quickly.

No they're EVERYWHERE, they just suck. Best Buy, for instance, has better gaming deals on a regular basis than today. At least Amazon is almost matching a lot of their BF deals, if not in price at least what's on sale. Best Buy isn't even doing that, they have crap games on sale for crap prices.

To be fair, the MS Store still has a few good games for $10 left, just nothing that's good is new so most people already have it.

The Witcher 2 from Gamestop looks good too. I ordered it from the MS store so I hope they actually ship it or I'll be annoyed since I can get it from Gamestop.

True, but to be...well, "not fair" I guess, lol...they did it yesterday and started very early that morning/late Saturday night instead of today, causing tons of people to completely miss it 8o(

If Amazon does what they did last year, another video game sale will happen in a week or two and may be better than BF. I remember purchasing quite a few video games on BF and then two weeks later, they had another lightning deal sale and those same games were much cheaper. So, if Cyber Monday is not that great....hopefully there will be another sale a week or two from now.

Not specifically gaming related...but I hate how it seems like most of the stuff that's in these lightening deals are items with very few reviews.

was there a sale for skyrim on the pc earlier?

best deal was from Microsoft (shocker!) for $9. see microsoft deal thread

Amazon seems to be floating from $25-30 for xobx. PS3 is anyone's guess. PC (other than the microsoft deal) $25 BF sale.

Im looking for this one too on PC but that possible (and likely) GOTY keeps nagging at me =/

This is my first Cyber Monday where I have a day off from work. The game deals seem decent ( I think Walmart.com has a better deal right now with game bundles), but I did score a set of sound isolating earphones from a lightening deal for $11. It also came with 5 ear tips since I have trouble wearing another pair of earbuds I received from Monoprice.

Seems like most of Amazon's deals are computer related, but I would like to see a good deal on an Xbox headset since my Microsoft set broke and is being held together by duct tape.
