okay, so that'd make it, what, $49 at most? Versus $64 or $65 at retail.. It's still $15 off

my word, that's insane given the game was released today! Hope this isn't a sign the game is selling poorly though, Sony exclusives rarely get the sales numbers they deserve :cry:

I feel like this has to do with the PS4 being a few months away and the PS3 nearing it's end.  Just trying to move more units probably.

Going to buy it for $40 (w/ eBay coupon), than just sell my copy from BB for $58. Already paid $63 for the game but add the $50 profit and take away $40 and I get The Last Of Us for $53 plus $20 bonus credit from BB.

Who do you suppose is going to pay $58 for it?

Wow, hell of a deal on release day. Definitely in for one! Thanks OP.

 

I can wait for the game to be shipped since I'm busy packing up all my stuff to move anyways.

It's ok to admit to flipping something, you don't have to candy-coat it.

IDK, ask the other people paying $58 for it now on eBay. I'm sure I'll make more than $50 which is all I need for a good deal.

Thanks OP, I was going to wait for a price drop since I have credit at both KMart and BestBuy, but this is a good deal. I just hope I get it in the mail by next week, I am eager to see if it is as good as everyone claims.

Eh. It's a deal. It's not the UNDER $20 some CAGs are getting it for at Target.

IF INTERESTED, read here: http://www.cheapassg...eo-games/page-4

Can't compare a pricing error, YMMV coupon, and employee ignorance to this deal though.

Damn you all!!! Looks like I'm dusting off my PS3. My plan was to wait a few months and pick it up cheaper. But $45 is too good to pass up. I'm gonna see what all the hubbub is about - woohoo!

Thanks, OP.

 

WIth this and the 1/2 off pre-ordered strategy guide offer from Best Buy, I got the game and collector's edition guide both for under the cost of retail game+taxes ($65).  All thanks to CAG.  I'm happy.

Nope, I'm in CA and have to pay tax. Quote from seller page: "Seller charges sales tax for items shipped to: CA(7.5%), NJ*(7.0%), TN*(9.25%)".

This is a hell of a deal. I agree with Yigytugd though. Taking advantage of a company. C'mon now. How cheap can you be?! Guess we know who the honest good people are and who the dishonest ones are.

So far over 3,000 copies have been sold. Is Newegg going to be able to supply that many copies of the game? I can't help but think some of us might be getting some cancellations or backorder emails. I really hope not though.

Tempting, but I've bought so many games full price then I end up not touching them after a week.

Never been huge into this game anyways. It looks pretty mediocre.

I'm playing the game and I can tell you that the last of us is far from mediocre.

 

I think it's also far from good.

I'm leery of Newegg auctions on eBay ever since that time they cancelled a bunch of XBL Gold 12 Month codes on many people and then put up a new listing with more inventory.  Then they asked me to retract my negative feedback.

That does not sound good. Well if they cancel my order, I just hope they remove the charge from my credit card quickly. I won't shed a tear or anything about it being cancelled since I was not expecting to buy this so soon, but I hate it when orders get cancelled but charges are not removed fast enough.

Aaaand sold out.. Newegg is apparently giving 3,350 copies of this game for $15 off. That's over $50,000 in losses, but they possibly gained over $150,000 from people that may not have bought it otherwise. I'll take that $100k margin anyday.
