The big worry is that since it has to be always connected to their servers, a lot of the online review sites are worried that if there is a major server crash or if EA decides to drop the game, everyone who bought it is screwed. Yet there are reports that people have already hacked the game and allowed for off line play. If it wasn't for all this launch mess or DRM shit, 40 dollars might be a good bite, but at 25-30 seems to be the good price...................until they release an expansion for it.

I picked up simcity today and haven't had any problems, I think most the technical issues have been fixed. I think it's a really fun game. I got it today with targets b2g1 so I could get in on the free game.

I never traded in systems/handheld devices before. I want to take advantage of that extra 25% though. Will they deduct from the TIV if the warranty seal has been broken? Or do they just make sure the product works and has all the accessories?

I have a 60GB PS3 (got it repaired) and two PSP 1000s I want to get rid of. The warranty seals are broken though.

Any info would be appreciated.

Ditto. That post actually motivated to get up out of my chair, drive over to the nearest BB and buy it outright. True story. :)

I found one of these for the PSP a week ago and my son loves it.

Amazon doesn't sell Nintendo hardware. Have no idea why, but I'm sure someone here can explain.


Well from what I remember reading online and on CAG before is that Amazon was getting upset with returned 3DS units that were getting scratched from when they were shut closed. Apparently that is a possible issue with the original 3DS though I haven't had it happen to mine. Anyways at some point Amazon and Nintendo got into it over who was responsible for paying for the replacement units, the fact this was an issue with the units, etc. No one knows for sure if it was Amazon who decided to cut ties with Nintendo in regards to selling any of their hardware or if Nintendo got pissed at Amazon and decided to not use them as a vendor for their hardware. Anyways that is what I remember reading online and through CAG sometime last year. I don't have a link to any official story but I remember reading this reason through several sources so take that for what it is worth. You could probably google about it

GS advertised price drop = taking credit for an MSRP drop


How is advertising a price drop taking credit for MSRP? They are advertising that the price of a game has dropped. Advertisements are used to inform people. Without advertising that the MSRP has dropped, how would people know that the price is lower? If you are implying that Gamestop uses the term "Price Drop" to take credit for MSRP, I would have to say you are wrong. There is a difference between sale and price drop. Would you prefer Gamestop to say "MSRP Drop"? They are a business and if they were to do that they would be informing customers that they can receive the same product elsewhere for the same price and that would be a terrible business practice.

gamestop has to advertise the msrp drops so customers know that they have it for the new msrp. the last thing they want is for someone to go to a different retailer and get it cause they didnt see it for that price at gamestop. whoever complained about gamestop doing this needs to know how retail works

The Amazon thing did definitely stem from the 3DS returns. Many people. myself included, had issues with the console, I've heard that these were addressed in later versions of the original 3DS. For example, my bottom screen had a big white line display down the center (when it was turned on) a few days after I started playing it. Amazon was getting massive amounts of returns for various reasons and they were acceptable by their return policy.

Since this occurred, Amazon most likely was saying that Nintendo needed to repair the units and change their manufacturing. Nintendo probably thought that Amazon's return policy was too lenient and that it wasn't their responsibility. The same thing happened with the recent Beatles Vinyl Box on Amazon, so many returns came in due to bad pressings that various Amazon regions stopped selling it since EMI wasn't claiming responsibility in some cases.

If Amazon was smart they would carry the XL, DSi, and Wii U, but most likely it's an all or nothing thing if they want to sell Nintendo hardware. Both companies are losing out by not making a deal.

fyi Nintendo didn't produce enough copies of earthbound because it didn't sell well

Actually the truth of the matter is that Nintendo overproduced Earthbound, they made a large initial run of it because they thought it would be a success, it is not rare. If they couldn't even sell their initial run how did they "not produce enough copies"? That is of course, unless you are talking about producing copies for resellers 20 years in the future.

Wouldn't Best Buy still PM a Dead Space day-one purchase for Premier Silver members since it's within the 60-day return window and presumably was purchased under the old Terms of Service (or am I way off on my understanding of their policies)?

Sure it is! Not to mention Hip Hop Experience. I've already have both but under $20 is definitely my price point. Wii U version is also $19.99 but I'd pass any dancing games that require controller.

If GameStop has same price as Amazon, I'd buy from GameStop as they have reward program. But without shrink wrap in store, I'd order online with SAVER code and use Discover web for additional 5% off.

There is a mod out there - with a 2-line code change :D - to play Simcity offline.

But there is still no way to save game offline.

I have always used mine for points cards with no problems.

I haven't played it yet but it'll probably be a better buy for someone who has never played a Crysis game, especially since it seems to be more of the same.
I know I don't have any plans on buying it unless it gets $5-10. Crysis 2 didn't leave a very good impression on me.

I can't even look forward to anything from Kmart anymore. For the last 4 months my local Kmart barely carries any video games and the electronics worker says they get 1 or 2 new release copies if they are lucky, but mostly don't receive any. The selection of games is so sad it looks like a yard sale.

Thats what mine looks like lately. Now I have seen 3 out of 6 stores around me closed down, and I wonder if the rest will stay open as they are empty most of the time as well.

Who did it first? Is it currently $29.99 at Gamestop?

Does amazon say "Look at me, look at me"? and send out e-mails or fliers advertising this price?

Does amazon charge more for used games then games on sale?

Would I get an opened game if I bought it new from amazon?


We all need to ignore this troll. He keeps spitting the same stuff about GameStop over and over. We know how you feel dude. Move on.

I have a suggestion for you. Next time you see a GameStop thread, just pass it by and we will be good.

By the way, I have bought new CDs and a blu-ray from amazon and were not sealed.

If I buy SimCity today, will I be eligible for the free game thing (or do we even have enough information to know that yet?). Considering buying it, using my $5.00 RZ cert that expires tomorrow, and price-matching to $39.99 next week.

Thanks!
