I'm kicking myself right now. I'm a Gamer's Club Unlocked member and had a coupon for Buy 2 Get 1 Free that expired 12/31, so last week I bought Silent Hill BoM, SFxT, and Smart As for my Vita!

It came out to around $80 for all 3, but with this sale it would've been around $70. Does anyone think it's possible to have BB invalidate the promotion and give me a price adjustment?

Also, even though I'm a PS Plus member, I'm tempted to pick up a hard copy of Gravity Rush for some reason. Decisions, decisions....


Best you could do is probably rebuy the 3 games for $70 now and return the original order. They won't price adjust with the b2g1 coupon ... so either you lose the coupon and get $10 back or you ... uhm, well I'd just rebuy and return because right now you're out $10 and out the coupon either way.

You could do a return/rebuy and try to get them to give you B2G1, unlikely but possible. You should be able to do a return/rebuy without a problem though.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Because it's fun?

I played the demo and I enjoyed it so I'm about to order one. I got MK today too.

Damn I already opened all 3 games, so returning/rebuying isn't an option for me. I'm not expecting to keep the B2G1 Free deal on this sale, so that's not really an issue (although I'm pissed that I could have used it on different games). I could sleep a little better at night if I could save that $10. Thanks for the advice guys, I guess it can't hurt to try.

Also, Smart As is pretty fun. Although as someone stated earlier it's better suited as a downloadable game (I should have bought it on sale on PSN). It's kind of a hassle to remove out the card after you play for 15-30 min and want to switch to a different game.

Um yes it is, you are not actually returning them, it's more price match than returning.

Buy all three of them again, then return the new copies with your old receipt.

Nice to see so many CAGs picking up Smart As... Sony as usual did a poor job marketing this underrated game. Best Buy is sold out right now but you can still pick it up on the PS Store for $20.XX if you have PS+ before it updates Tuesday.

I hAve to say you're completely right. I own 15 vita games and know nothing about Smart As, never saw a commercial for it or any advertising. I have NO idea what it's about, I just assumed it's a wannabe Brain Age clone.

Dedication! I wonder though, several reviews say you only generally play for minutes a day, and that's it's more an app than a game.

Well, I do the daily training, which is a few minutes, but that's only 4 (of 8) games and on easy mode.

The real challenge is free play mode where there are many more types of games and 4 difficulty levels to unlock.
I'm trying to Platinum the game, just takes a bit.

Just bring your receipt or show them the cc and date you bought for a price adjustment. It shouldn't be difficult.

I am in the same boat, though I saw them giving away some bags at E3... they didn't say, explain, or detail the game (nor was there anything about it in the bag), but they made bags at the very least.


@ splattboy32

It is a simple adjustment, so you can do it without even bringing in the games. They will just scan the receipt and then adjust it. However if you're REALLY worried about it, simply buy the games at their current price and return them with your other receipt.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

I guess it really depends on if you like shape/color puzzle games or not, but if I had to say, it would be Lumines. it's one of my all-time favorite games. :D

Lumines all the way. Played the demo of Smart As and was so bored! Maybe it's designed for the people who didn't have a DS or similar games costing $0.99 on iOS, but it seemed just like a glorified Brain Age game or one of its ilk. Not super impressed, and glad I tried the demo before (not) jumping on it.
