Anyone know why it won't let me get BL2 for $25?

In the checkout it alters it to $34.99. I got one and am not on any wait list.

I was able to get a copy of borderlands 2 for ps3. I've been pretty lucky with these deals. So far I've gotten this and the sly collection.

Posted Image :applause:Always maintained Amazon RULE


I have gotten the four of those six games mentioned that have shown up on Amazon (not Pokemon, obviously), and I'll bet I get the other two.

I think my momentary worry that Amazon wouldn't try to prove it's Walmart, but online, was a biiiit unfounded.

If an Amazon person reads this: $25 is a price point I will never have trouble paying for newish games, so keep hitting that sweet spot.

well since im most likely not getting ratchet i threw Fall of Cyberton in on a whim $25 is a bit high i would have liked $20 but i figured what the hell. I probaly wont be getting Ratchet since even though i clicked it the second it popped up the stupid 'checking' circle stalled it for a good 20+ seconds
My massive game collection list: (work in progress, pain in the butt getting it all entered)

It shows in my cart that I got Batman for $10.00, yet when I checkout it shows $15.00 every time, why is that?

It mentioned it as soon as I was put on it. No big deal since the MS store has it still.

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.


I was 500+ within literally 10 seconds of it going live. Absolute fuckery.

Why the hell would they even post that as an upcoming deal. Did they stock 11 copies, and staff bought them within 1 second? That was ridiculous. Guess I'll see how this waitlist thing goes. Not too excited about losing out because it took 10 seconds to add to my cart. :/

Got Ratchet and Clank and Lego Batman 2. Lucked out there with how fast Ratchet went...crazy. I've managed to get everything I wanted on the LD's today, except NBA2k13 which I forgot to be on for...no biggie there.

SCORE! Got Borderlands 2! Im so glad I made up for messing up at Wal Mart earlier today. NBA 2K13 earlier from amazon, and Borderlands 2 right now! Awesome!

On a side note, using an IPAD to buy these LD games is scary. Lol

I think amazon is just trolling people by placing X amount of games for that special price since the regular price is available

had to throw Cybertron back. Just way too many games. Hope a CAG got it.

Managed to get Lego Batman 2 and Forza no problem.

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.

Yeah, that ridicolous thing keeps happening to me. I keeps "checking deal" or whatever with that circle loading symbol and then either nothign or I get thrown on the waitlist. I'm on the waitlist for Forza, Ratchet and Clank, and Borderlands 2( both editions, whichever one it lets me get first I'll get, if any)

Got Forza Horizon and the 4GB Kinect Bundle. Was the price wrong on the 250GB Bundle? Could've sworn it was supposed to be $200 but the price showed $250. Oh well.

It looks normal but on the side where it shows the breakdown of costs (subtotal, shipping costs, etc.) is where you'll see the discount adjustment.

Still shows as in stock there -- for those still looking.

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.

Yep, same as last year which is why I don't mind paying tax at the MS Store or $5 more for a non-lightning price to ensure that I actually end up with something.

I used some of my BB credit on Weds to buy a $50 Amazon card in anticipation of the sales, and I'm kinda regretting it now. Either the deals aren't that spectacular (imo) or they sell out the second they go live.
