Been looking at the Astro A50s for a while as an upgrade to my Turtle Beach PX5s. The optical passthrough causes popping and the signal strength is wonky, even though I am about 3 feet from the base.

Best Buy raised the price $20 when they added the GC; it was quoted $299.99 MSRP last week. I'm pretty sure they did this so that instead of paying $280 + $20 for the GC, you're paying $300 for the headset and $0 for the GC but I'm not sure if that's bizarre or not.

Anyone here have a reasonable experience with the A50s compared to something like the PX5s?

EDIT: Just to clarify, I don't mean they are charging $320 for the A50s, I mean they claim it is MSRP $320 and you're "saving" an additional $20 when you are, in fact, not. Also, I've never seen them charge $0 for a GC.



No popping for me and signal strength is amazing on my end. Must be something that's causing interference with your setup. These headphones are awesome and they have always been 299. I bought mine in November and I check every week for a sale just to go get the price matched in case they got cheap. They never went on sale in 2 months. They are comfortable as hell

Does anyone know if you can get the Resident Evil 6 for $10 still if you PRE-ORDERED DmC or do you have to return your pre-order and RE-BUY it?

It's possible BB (as a company) has low inventory. This would makes sense if they are planning a GOTY version with DLC soon. No reason for Best Buy to order more vanilla copies if that is the case.

I think that guy was not being serious... I think he was trying to poke fun at those that are trying to get a $10 RE without purchasing DMC.


There actually is a way to do this...just wait a couple more months. ;)

only the ps3 version is sold out, the xbox 360 is still available. I guess there is a greater demand of the game for the ps3 than xbox 360

Or, they ordered less PS3 because it sells less ... that's more likely. I have it on the PS3, though :P But, generally, I do get open world stuff on the Xbox.

It's an awesome game, though -- highly recommended. I even bought the DLC, which I rarely do.

So tempted to get 2K13 on xbox 360.....

Do you have it on PS3? Or have you just been waiting in general? 2K13 is a good game, not much improved over 12 aside from the dream team, ultimate team and some slight nods to the my player. Still a great game though.

To everyone second guessing or debating on Far Cry 3 it's an amazing game. Well worth $60. Multiplayer is hit or miss but the single player is great. I made the mistake of playing a bit of it before I finished AC III and struggled to go back to AC III. I have been saving Far Cry until I clear a few games out of my back log, but I can't wait to get back to it.

I don't remember which ones were on sale, but I got those two along w/ Scribblenauts. After stacked promos, ~$30/ea game; pretty nice deal. Most of the more "desirable" games were still $60.

If they didn't do one for XIII-2 I can't see them doing one for any other game.

Especially a game like Sleeping Dogs that sold pretty poorly.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.

Just for heads up. If you price match the Xbox 360 wireless controller at Best Buy make sure you print out that ad or use your local ad to match. I tried to buy the controller at best buy without the ad and they used the online ad which uses the old picture of the Xbox 360 controller (one with the grey d pad not black). They wouldn't match it.
