Wow. Christ. Clicked Ratchet and Clank immediately when it appeared, circle flashed for the whole time, finally put me on the waitlist at 500+.

Too bad - I really wanted to play those games. Guess I won't get the chance now.


Ya.. that circle sucks. I clicked imedeatly too, but the circle took a good 20 or 30 seconds

What the hell? I clicked on Transformers the second it went live, it gave me the "checking deal status" icon the entire time while I watched the claimed bar go up from 0% to 100%!!!

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

Same here for Batman 2. Clicked as soon as it was available only to be put on the list at 428. Must be small quantities.

Yeah same thing for me on Transformers. It sat there "thinking" the entire time the claims went up and up then put me 289 on waitlist. Oh well.

I stayed up this late to get Lego Batman 2, put it in my cart the second it goes on sale, and I still get fucked. First they start charging tax to avoid a state lawsuit, now they offer 4 copies of a game for their shitty copy-cat deals. I'm done with amazon.

wtf!! Deal goes live and no option to click on it appears. Just a zeroed out timer. I refresh and it takes me back to ALL page so I have to scroll down to Video Games. By the time I get to game and select choose options I'm on wait list. wtF!! I even had four separate windows open and none showed optin to choose game. This didn't happen earlier when I picked up FiFA 13 and NBA 2K13

Got Transformers: FOC just as the percentage went from 25%, to 74%, and hit 82%. Glad I quickly opened a another tab, since it froze the first attempt.

Same thing with Ratchet. The buttons started to appear a couple at a time on the list after the 00 seconds hit -- I clicked as soon as it appeared, and it sat there saying "Checking on deal", and I watched as it went to 40 percent, 80 percent, and then finally "You are on the waitlist (500+)."

lol at fukcingforza being sold out in 10 seconds


10 seconds? Didn't even take that long. I hit the button the second it appeared and I was on 400+ on the waiting list. Oh well, at least this was my one and only exposure to the ridiculousness of the "lightning deals" this year. Forgotten how much the whole process sucked.

Same for me. 100% trolled by Amazon this year.


Same with me. Clicked it on 12:10 (0:08) when the deal went live. 0% were claimed. I had "checking deal status", and it's STILL going. I'm still waiting for it.

Got Ratchet and Clank in cart but didn't realize you also had to CHECKOUT with the item to claim the deal. Went back to get Lego Batman 2 and by that time the price in my cart for Ratchet had changed from $15 to full price.

Fucking pissed. Didn't even really want Lego Batman. Ratchet was my main target. Fuck me.

Not to be "that guy", but you're TECHNICALLY supposed to pay the tax locally even if the vendor (Amazon} doesn't charge it.

... Technically.

i am only posting what others here have posted for their reason for shopping at amazon

Got FoC in my cart, but want Lego Batman 2 for my wife. I am 500+ on wait lists for both PS3 and 360. :(

I should have added that to my cart first.

Bought Lego Batman 2 for 360. This is my only black friday videogame purchase this year.

Good luck to those trying to get borderlands and ratchet. I already got Ratchet for $10 at gamestop and I don't have much interest in borderlands 2 right now. I'll definitely buy the inevitable Borderlands 2 GOTY edition in the future because Gearbox does DLC very very very well.

I only have my amazon tab open when I order so nothing can hold it up. Nothing else on my computer is connected. Not sure if that matters, but every millisecond counts.
