Eh...think I'm going to cancel my preorder after playing the demo. Not bad at all but just too similar to the previous game. Will jump back on when price drops.

dead space? yea played the demo too and it will just be a gamefly rental for me. I like the weapon crafting aspect but its seems to be more action oriented too.

Nice to see Amazon bringing $20 credits back. Too bad I don't want any of those games day one though.

Would be more interested to see these:
Aliens: Colonial Marines (maybe, not 100% sold)
Bioshock Infinite
The Last of Us

Does anyone know how the digital release of Crysis will be given? As in is it a code or put on disc?

Damn you, Amazon. I wanted to wait till this game hit the 30 dollar price range. To my knowledge it didn't take long for the first two Dead Space games to drop in price. I need to think this over...


Same here, I want that preorder edition, yet the gamble for PM is high.

This one isn't very interesting to me. At least with DS2, PS3 users got Extraction with it.

Based on amazon and gamestop's wording you get them via email after it is sent out.

AAA games rarely drop more than $20 in the first 2 months.

If the game isn't worth $40 then is it really a AAA title? U maybe more of a "budget game buyer" than most & will wait longer(I assume you're clearing your backlog in the process)

So nice to get things on release day as opposed to waiting a week or two for the $40 sale.

But that's what makes the BB deal so good you get everything game day 1, largest credit amount & the $20 sale price. Basically, the end result is $40 paid w/$20 credit.

It also says you get the credit two days after your order ships so that's better than having to wait a month for your $20 RZ certificate like Best buy.

If u want instant RZ pts from BB then vote for them here it's been live for
http://forums.bestbu...uy/idi-p/547674

The 60 day PM is only valid for purchases made by RZ Silver members, correct? I thought regular purchases only had 30 days to do a post sale PM.

Still, I can't see Dead Space 3 dropping that much in just a couple months, I could be wrong I guess. The convenience of not having to go to the store on a Tuesday after work, instant $20 promo code, no tax, getting the game delivered to me on release day (I have Prime), AND getting Amazon exclusive dlc that I can sell on eBay a couple months down the road and make some of my money back, makes Amazon the winner for me.

I love Best Buy, but I've had terrible luck in the past with the $20 back promos.

Silver can be achieved easily, DS3 will be $40 w/i 30 days just look at the # of releases Feb/March, vote in the above link for instant RZ pts, tax is $3-$4 vs $10-$20 back via pm(I see you've had issues though)
make 1 trip into BB & do all your pre-orders($50 will cover 10 games) then order them online once u get all the $20 promos get a refund or move the $50 to cover your next 10 games.

This year the spring/summer lineup is huge so we should be seeing a lot of sales/price match opportunities.

Amazon is more convenient, but Best Buy is the better deal.

perfectly stated

actually this deal is better for pc gamers, since bestbuy does not offer $20 to pc

Vote here to chancge that
PC gamers

Damn Amazon. Really wanted to wait for Crysis 3, to go down but that's to good of a deal to pass up. Too bad Bestbuy doesn't offer $20 for PC because I have no doubt this will go down within 90 days.

Vote in the above link to get PC versions added to all GC/GCU promos going forward

I wish best buy 20 dollars promo applied to PC, but I had to go with the 360 version.

This is a good deal for amazon customers

Vote in the above link to get PC versions added to all GC/GCU promos going forward

?
How long do the $20 credit offers show on AMZ? This could come in handy to get a day one $40 pm @ BB since they will just take the $20 off the $60. They may still "charge" me $20 for a BB giftcard but it's just like cash anyways.

I am not seeing the $20 credit with the PC Download or am I seeing it wrong? I guess it is worth it to get the $20. But digital downloads are more convenient.

Thanks OP! SimCity for $40 was too good to pass up. Now I just need to decide on Crysis 3, I might have to do it as well seeing as how it will never go on sale on Steam.

Preordered Crysis 3 and Army of Two. My bro is getting Dead Space 3. Crysis 3 coming with the original Crysis game is great since I've never played the series. Just gotta get Crysis 2 from a local used store.

I'm going to wait on Dead Space 3. I'm kinda hoping they'll release a trilogy collection sometime later in the year for around $40.

Hoping they'll also offer $20 credit with Tomb Raider, I feel like I'm the only one really excited for it.

Sweet I really hope it's a code being as I already have Crysis 1 bought and downloaded on my PS3. I wasn't going to get Crysis 3 at launch but hell a limited edition, 20 dollar credit, a preorder bonus weapon, and a digital code I can sell is a pretty damn good deal to me. Too bad it comes out the same day as the new Hakuoki game though now I can't use my 20 code on it But I had 27 dollars in pts and gift cards so I got them both with a filter for my cat water fountain for just 67 bucks. Game of Thrones Season 2 comes out that Tuesday as well, but I'm getting that from Best Buy if they have the exclusive packaging again.

I usually prefer Gamestop's pre-orders, but lately Amazon has been trashing them. Amazon has an artbook for Tomb Raider, they have the $20 credits.

The only thing Gamestop has on them right now is the Metal Gear Rising pre-order bonus.

There are retailer exclusive bonuses (all it is, is just a single item- i.e. GameStop's exclusive is a gun), in addition to bonuses you get when pre-ordering by default. The vanilla bonuses for pre-ordering come inside the game package, as they come with the Limited Edition (you're guaranteed to get the LE if you pre-order). If it's anything like other EA LEs, you should be able to find it a few months after the game has been out.

I mean if amazon exclusive stuff will hit xbox marketplace later down the road. I want the tesla weapon and outfits but if i buy day one i prob get from newegg for 45 shipped. That $15 off long ago ruled and i mass preordered stuff just in case. I loved DS1 and paid ebay prices for all dlc and long after hit xbox market.

I'd probably jump in on Dead Space 3 if it were $50 + the bonus on PC. I've purchased both Dead Space games for less than $10.
