After months of coupons being thrown away, I've used 2 out of this issue. Got Zumba Core for Kinect.:D

Because they're really forcing it down people's throats like Gamestop and their cards and preorders and whatever else...


They are charging for a Gamers club that is questionably more valuable than what they used to give for for free with Gamers Zone

I personally dont appreciate it, the GZ was fine the way it was and didnt require a fee to participate. All BB is doing is confusing and pissing off customers with this pseudo Gamestop bullshit

Finally popped in my $5 Prototype 2 and while it's definitely fun I definitely don't really like the main character (reminds me waaaaay too much of the dude from Mortal Kombat, can't recall his name atm), the terrible draw distance is kind of baffling, and I can't shake the feeling of it just being a poor man's inFamous

You know... Things change.

Best BUy has to make money somehow. It's not like they're apple with their billions in stock reserves. The free GZ obviously wasn't cutting it for them bottom line.

This is my #1 problem with cag- too many people who think businesses exist solely to sell them stuff for cheap. Gotta Give a little too, ya know.

Between trade ins and coupons, I've saved the $15 cost and then some. Stop worrying about the free GZ deals you *used* to get. That wasn't going to continue because it wasn't working for them.

I guess I assumed that the controller is not Play-and-Charge because it is not in the title like other Play-and-charge controllers. Also, the description is pretty poor. It says that it includes the cable, but it never mentions that the rechargeable battery is included. It does, however, allude to a battery, so that is my fault for not reading carefully.

Is this controller the only one that works with the coupon? Is one available without the play-and-charge extras?

The $15 price has been saved over time and time again for me. I would say I probably saved that $15 on the first round of usable coupons alone, lol. Yes, it sucks that these same types of coupons used to be free, but the $15 isn't much and like I said I've saved that many times over.

Btw, another Unlocked benefit I just discovered when glancing at the terms of service faq is that, apparently, for Unlocked members, RZ points don't expire at the end of the year. So, on top of the savings and bathroom reading material, some people with points in their account (like myself) might get an extra RZ certificate out of the deal.

Oops, I meant cash reserves, not stock reserves.

Anyway, getting $20 back on a new release (vs $10) has already paid for the GCU fee this year -- cause there are some games I must play right away.

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.

I feel the same way. I've saved well over the $15, even with a few dry months here and there. Plus, the magazine is good for downtime at work or in the restroom.

Wow, that is great. They should really advertise that feature more since expiring points has always been an issue ever since they introduced Reward Zone. I've gotten five or six $5 certificates over a year just from buying a bunch of $5 games and was wondering why my points never seemed to deplete.

Another lesser-known feature of Reward Zone is that you get points by shopping with various retailers like Old Navy and drugstore.com if you go through the Reward Zone Online Mall.

Funny I always felt like inFamous was a poor man's Prototype. Both 1 and 2.

P2 was significantly better than P1 - in fact its VERY hard to go back to P1 after P2. I didn't enjoy the main character as much in P2 as I did P1, but after awhile he really grew on me. For what it's worth, P2 was one of the funniest games I've played in awhile. It might not have had a lot of depth, or insane graphics, but it was just plain fun - it also has a GREAT balance of collectibles - in that it shows you generally where they are, and there aren't 500+ for no reason other than to piss you off (hi Web of Shadows...).

It's an easy 900/1000 and 1000/1000 is pretty easy as well I just don't have the time for that anymore.

They leave alot of money on the table with foolish mistakes though & poorly thought out promos. If they were to edit slightly several things across the board money(profit not revenue) would be pouring in. They need to focus on pleasing all customers. The GC could easily be adapted to suit each gamer type & when done correctly there'd be no competition.

Protoype 2 SHOULD be $30, as seen by the pre-owned price at $25. BUT I think BB is doing something somewhat shady. Yes MSRP is suggested so they do not have to change the price. But I bet once the coupon expires you'll see the price go down to $30.

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.

Guaranteed once the coupon expires the MSRP will suddenly drop to $30.
