You will be waiting an awful long time for a new PS3 to drop to $100. Even with a price cut and/or a BF sale it will probably be 2015 before you can get a new one for $100


I don't know about this. I would think they would pop up on clearance and with promo deals while retailers try to clear their inventory. Along with Sony's penchant to re-release consoles.

I also think this is a great time to get in on a PS3 or 360. When a system nears the dawn of a new generation, it means the current get is getting it's best releases yet as the hardware is usually being pushed to it's limits and has it's best games at a great price, usually >$20. Meanwhile, it typically takes a year to start ramping up good games on a new console.

Bottom line, you can pick up 50+ AAA titles for >$20 now, or pick up the best launch and most anticipated titles that trickle out for $50-70 just to have the latest games, but I doubt they will actually compare to current AAA titles. We buy the console for the games after all, so I would stick with current gen until the next gen has actually proven to add something that actually earns your gametime.

I'm curious on this. Does Toys R Us still have Injustice at 29.99$? Is a price match considered a discount?

Injustice was never $29.99, but $34.99, and TRU currently has a 2-for-$70 sale going on with Injustice included so it'stechnically $35 (though you have to buy two copies or another eligible game).

It's very YMMV that you'll be able to price-match and use a coupon, as it's considered double-dipping and frowned upon for the most part.

Reason being I have a GIANT backlog already. I'm not about to add to it at those prices. Fiscally irresponsible and all. lol Just ps3 I have about 20 retail games I haven't even touched. (Not even counting psn, or vita games here.) I like go for plats(Have 53 of them after all.) So some games can be quite time consuming.

Not really, it's already been $200 on BF the last 2 yrs in a row so this yr would be $150 or less depending on if the MSRP drops to $200. Worse case BF 2014.

Don't give your ID till they enter your phone # make take 2 times since the system is quirky but once it's enter the 10% comes up automatically. For future reference you can pull up your RZ account online & it'll show the promo or keep the receipt from a trade with the 10% & show them that. It's a pain but I remember having to keep a copy of the price match policy along with the responses from the BB forums page on how they were to match GC offers.

i just realised that injustice will be 50$ which makes it 40$ after the coupon. nit a bad deal for a new release eventhough tru had it for 35$. what this does show is that sales stacks with the coupons could be making a comeback !

Unfortunately my local Best Buy doesn't accept trade in's. I have to drive 45 mins north of there to the next closest store that does. About a year ago I brought in a ton of trade in's and the guy there sold me the GCU sub and I got my 10% extra (on top of the 100% bonus). I've gone there 2 more times since then, and NO ONE there including the managers know anything about what GCU is and insist there is no 10% bonus. Each time, i've gone, it's always during a 100% trade in bonus and they insist that I got the bonus and that I am just flat out wrong on the extra 10%. To make is worse, they claim there is no such thing as "unlocked" that gives you anything else! They sell this product and they don;t even know what it is, what it does, and won't honor it?
My GCU actually expires today. I might renew it just because of the $20 pre-order bonuses, but I've found that driving 45 mins to a much smaller Best Buy just doesn't pay off.

Sounds like you need to post on the BB forums and call up corporate. Your store sounds horrid and needs to be improved. This is another reason why BB is headed downhill, employees who don't care and don't want to learn.

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.
