What a stupid comment. If they're willing to forego the money they make on me because: (1) I emailed them and asked them why they decided not to offer the "All Video Game Gold Box" and (2) they replied by apologizing and offering me promotional credit, then they would be some of the dumbest business-people ever.

Therefore, following the train of logic, you must be suggesting that Amazon decision-makers are some of the dumbest business-people ever. I think they have a nice way of apologizing for a mistake or a miscommunication. I happily accept their apology.


Just depends on how often you complain about crap like this. They will ban for it if you do it all the time.

Company cancels a sale-

normal behavior: "awww man, that sucks" / "those bastards!" / "they're not as good as they used to be" / "I don't appreciate their behavior and will stop shopping there as much."
entitled bs behavior: I should call them and get some monies



I'm disappointed they didn't have their sale. I was hoping to pick up some last minute stocking stuffers. But life goes on.



And I've seen one person in this thread actively attempt to get a credit, and they only did so after you claimed to do the same thing. You planted the idea.

The other guy got a credit by complete accident while trying to find out what was going on with the sale (as the rest of us were doing), and once Amazon posted a definitive cancellation, I haven't seen another person make a post about Amazon. If they had outright cancelled it (as you're suggesting they did) instead of just not doing it and leaving everyone in the dark, this thread would have been a lot shorter. In fact, I'm willing to bet it would have been, "Gold Box Event cancelled." -- "Oh well, it probably would have been a bunch of Wii games anyway."

I dunno why they cancelled it. I looked today expecting a game or at least a headset and saw the vacuum. Very disappointing.

when I make a joke about being on the phone with amazon for three hours and getting 4 bucks, I would think no one took me seriously. Obviously I was joking around. (It's too bad it turned into this. We should just celebrate the Xbox sale!)

@Therealdanhill - Where did I say a majority of people did anything? I was laughing at the people that did. I apologize if that offended you.

Slim >>>>>> Super Slim

That is all.

I still have a working backward compatible 80 gig and I wanted to bite on this, but I can wait next year for the new PS. I just watch blurays on mine nowadays so I think it'll last til then.

Tempted by this deal, but my near launch PS3 is still working. If it was going to YLOD it probably would have by now. I'll sit tight and hope for the best.

You should buy it as insurance and back everything up by networking them. Learn from my mistake...unless you have ps+, then you're good to go.

When Amazon is having these all day holiday Lightning Deals, they often leave out some deals from the initial list and only post them just prior to when they go live. Seems particularly frequent with games. Maybe that's what's going on here.


Heavy Rain DC, Game of Thrones and 8 other Video Games deals listed now.

So much whining...

Is Heavy Rain worth it at that price? The fact that it's not sold out yet makes me think it will be even less soon

Really tempted to get a PS3 just so I can play the 'exclusive' games. All of the HD remakes of my favorite PS2 games is really a major bonus too, Shadow of the Colossus, Final Fantasy X (coming someday), God of War, etc. etc.

Maybe if I just tell myself that I need a Blu-Ray player...

Did they stop offering free shipping for the lightning deals? I remember being able to get FS even if the item wasn't over 25$. I'm trying to order Heavy Rain but its making me pay for the shipping.

Ditto. Playing mine today and it's loud as a vacuum, but dammit, it's my vacuum. Hoping it can last at least another year.

This only works if the item was over $24.99 before the Gold Box discount.

If anyone from Amazon ever reads these boards..............Please, a decent 32GB Vita Memory Card Deal.

Keep those 4GB card deals, and stick them where the sun dont shine, those cards are good for absolutely NOTHING!

oh also it came out to $274 shipped, not 250. Don't forget the tax

I thought it was worth it cause it's like getting a 320gb slim ps3 for 220 bucks after tax which is pretty sweet. Can't wait to download some free games xmas day

It has been $16 at newegg for quite some time. I imagine it will hit $10 in a sale at some point.
