Polygon is saying you can get Halo 4 from Amazon and get a $20 GC + a $10 Instant Video credit. Has anybody seen that confirmed elsewhere or made the purchase to verify if that's true?


Ive been looking since this morning and I havent seen it. If someone else has please enlighten us

I recently bought sr3 vanilla on Xbox from gamefly, and have not got into it yet. Is the DLC worth it? I could trade in the base game to best buy and make $10 back, so is paying $15 for the DLC worth it?

Missed it Tuesday too. I didn't need to refresh like last time. Once the timer ran out the add go cart button popped. Glad I got it though!

damn really wanted that sly collection as well... they didn't have it at walmart when i went earlier.

oh well, managed to get uncharted 3 goty off amazon instead. between walmart & microsoftstore i got everything i wanted, minus sly. have too many games backlogged already though so i'm not too worried about it, maybe next time.

For anyone needing a carrying case for their 3DS (not XL), I wholeheartedly recommend the AmazonBasics carrying case that's $6.99 right now as a Lightning Deal. It's very secure and convenient.

i am really kinda of wondering, how do these company, and developers even make any profit, when the games are being discounted so fast, and early, lol


Two ways:
High price + low volume or high volume = high profit

Low price* + high volume = profit

*This is assuming the low price is slightly higher than the rate it costs the developer per game.

Excellent, got Sly, Lego Harry Potter, the Crow and an egg for $25.98. Also price matched the Lego Lord of the Rings i bought last week so they dropped it down to todays price but they left me the $10 preorder bonus and the extra characters. Its turning out to be a good BF.

Got The Sly Collection at the first second; good for me.

I decided to hold off on gettin' Dishonored through Amazon by the chance of gettin' it at the local Best Buy Store. I have a reward zone card with me, and I want to take advantage of the membership. Besides, there's no thrill in buying a game on sale if it's readily available online; I like a bit of tension.

I can't even load up the lightning deals page for some reason. Was working fine earlier, now the "daily deals" page just shows featured set prices.

I don't know why, but I just can't pull the trigger on dishonored. It will probably sit on the backlog for a while, and by that time it will probably be cheaper :\

Do you guys know if I can add two lightning deals at a time? I want Borderlands 2 and NBA 2K13 for 25 each but would I be able to add both at the same time?

Was able to grab Sly this go around, couldn't bring myself to pay for shipping so just threw UC3 in for a friend. Now, if I can get my claws on WWE '13 tomm, I'm all set in the buying games department.

I suck at this, was waiting all morning for the latest set of lightning deals and zoned out for 10 minutes. #300 in the waitlist for Sly Cooper, don't think I'll be fortunate enough! No biggie as it'd just be more backlog fodder.

Anddddd, just with that, the waitlist notification appears. Looks like I'm getting it! :)
