I'm tempted to try for God of War Saga later today at 12:10pm EST so I can return my $20 unopened copy to Gamestop to get some credit back.


Oh my glob... How much will it be LSP?!

what queue number were you in for r and c?


Probably in the 400 range. It was "checking deal status" for a good 5 seconds when it went live so I guess those seconds screwed me up.

Wow, not many people biting on the Halo 4 deal, lol. Well can't blame them considering it's a pretty lukewarm deal, but then again nothing better elsewhere. ;)


I canceled mine after I found i wouldnt be able to use the Gift Card on these deals

Man, if you blink, you miss these deals. You basically have to be primed and on the page. I was picking up some food about 10 minutes before the deal, got home and remembered at about 5 minutes after and everything was already 100% claimed and most of the waitlists were full. I was omw back from Walmart though where I had scored a few deals so no big loss. :P

Total BS about R&C. Amazon really dropped the ball this year. I don't really mind so much, but that I got ZERO things from Amazon this Thanksgiving period says a lot about their practices this time of year.

claimed R&C first right when it went live, immediately tried to grab lego batman 2 360, spun for 20 seconds, got waitlisted, but said it sold out about 20 min later.

Hard for me to justify buying any games higher than $13.33, since they'll all likely hit $20 eventually and there will be more B2G1s, but figured $15 is close enough.

Didn't this same exact thing happen last year, highly sought after things going out of stock almost immediately? After all, it's not like last night where only the REALLY astute shoppers figured stuff was going live, the general public has been lying in wait all day to get in on the black Friday deals.

Got it during a lightning deal last year for the same price and its a great headset. you can customize all the presets to your own liking too and it has some games on their website with optimized presets.

It's been happening for at least the past 2 years. Maybe longer depending on when Amazon instituted the current lightning deals system where you can get onto a waitlist.

So it's pretty solidly built for the price? That's what I'm most concerned about. No failing speakers or breaking from usage.

Only issue I ever had with it was the battery cover is cheap and I chipped a peg/clip off it. I contacted them about it and they sent a replacement with no issues whatsoever.

That really is the only downfall to the headset, it uses 2 AA batteries. pick up some rechargeable and you will be good to go.

it works with the 360 also and has presets for it too

Oh yeah one other thing you should know is that it uses the 2.4ghz wireless frequency so if you use a router on the same frequency it has the potential to have some feedback on it.

i have not had a issue but I have read reviews were other people have

That's what I figured, wondered why people are complaining about it like it's some new phenomena.
