Just so everyone knows, $19.99 is the new MSRP for all these games. Every Best Buy should have 2 cardboard display stands full of these if not more. $14.99 is still a nice $5 off though.

 

I do know that I've been waiting for Twisted Metal for quite some time. For the longest time it refused to go below $29.99. $14.99 might be the best "readily available" deal so far on Twisted Metal. 

 

Sly and God of War: Origins have definitely been this low before (maybe even as far back as 2 Christmas's ago). But I thought those games were actually getting sort of hard to find at one point? (GoW: Origins replaced by the full GoW collection). If there's a new display it's probably a reprint of all of these.

That was the Sly collection (Sly Cooper 1-3), this is Sly Cooper 4, which only came out back in February or so at a MSRP of $40, and $20 is the new MSRP.

Sly Cooper just came out in February and that's the cheapest I've seen it.

That's a good price on the ICO collection but I would pass on KZ3 at that price point.  Been available at other times and places for $15 and waiting for a good price on the trilogy myself.

 

 

 

 

I agree, don't bother with the KZ3. Look for the Trilogy instead. They should have just made the trilogy apart of this.

That's my single biggest issue with Best Buy (Frys.com is notorious for this as well). 

 

They have a sale, and then INSTANTLY the item is not available. I could not get PS3 version of RE6 because of this. I'm debating whether to get the 360 version. 

 

This was a chronic problem with the @GAMER coupons, and a big reason why I never even bothered signing up. Now that program seems to be going away. I wonder why.  They seemed to want to use that process to clear out the last stock of certain games, but having printed coupons for limited stock items is about the dumbest thing ever

Sly is cross buy, if you are fast enough to resell on eBay you should be able to score a free vita version. I did it last time when Amazon had the $10 off. Their brand new BIN sits at $23.xx, so you should be able to sell at $20.

Best Buy has used Resident Evil 6 (PS3) for $8 this week, still showing available for shipping right now.

 

They also have the used versions of all these on-sale games for $13 this week, although some of them have online passes (Battle Royale, Twisted Metal, LBP Karting), DLC voucher (GT5 XL), or Vita cross-buy (Battle Royale, Sly 4) that you most likely won't get with used.

 

I had a bunch of these added in my cart but then realized that with MSRP drop to $20 and PS4/Black Friday incoming, I should just wait for $10 price point.

Assuming that Sly 4 works the same way as PSABR, you insert the game and go to disc benefit (located above the game disc) and click on it. Then it will take you somewhere to claim your Vita version of the game which will be locked onto your account. Once that is done you can just sell Sly 4. You won't be needing the disc ever again if you plan on playing the Vita version.

 

Edit: Damn... 1 minute too slow.. if only I didn't write a long description.

 

Also, is $15 for Ico & Shadow a good deal? I hear the game hasn't aged well.

 

It's aged even better because the HD version of Shadow of the Colossus offers rock solid 30 FPS whereas the original wavered between 15 and 20 FPS during action scenes. The FPS boost is reason to enough to pick it up IMO.

 

Got a couple of Reward certs so I'll pick up Sly 4.

Same thing, I was just about to buy ICO/Shadow and then I noticed it said 19.99 was MSRP and decided to not buy it.  I've eliminated most of my physical games in my backlog by playing them or (for the most part) deciding I'll just never play those games and sold them brand new before the prices all plummet to $1 PS2 type prices.  That leave a ton of games in my backlog so I'm in no hurry to buy these games even though I heard they're good and have never played them.  I'll hold for $10.

This price on Killzone 3 is laughable especially since the Trilogy was like $20 last fall at Gamestop. Really BB, should have that on sale here. I think Sly is the best deal here as the rest have been around these prices or cheaper before.

 

why dont you start naming all the games with "laughable" prices?

a lot of people actually think the low framerates added to the "charm" of the game and is a gamebreaker.

Am I better off getting and playing through the Sly trilogy before Sly 4?  I wish those trilogy/collections would drop from $20 every once in a while.  I've been wanting to pick up the Jak and Daxter collection along with the Sly Collection.  I never had a PS2.

I cringed when I read this.  Remember, this game was released with a $40 price tag.

 

Coming from someone who enjoyed the originals, Sly 4 is AMAZING.  You would never know that someone other than Sucker Punch made this game; it is every bit as good as the originals, if not better.  If you're looking for a revamp of the series then you might want to steer clear, but if you loved Sly and simply want more then this game is for you. 

 

Sly fans... if you haven't already bought this game, you need to NOW.  They did an amazing job and I would love to see them get the opportunity to make another Sly game in the future.  This game is criminally overlooked.

There's a bit of history between the characters that connects the story lines.  Personally I would play them in order.  The collection has been on sale a handful of times.  I was able to pick mine up from BBY for $12 last holiday season I believe, and I've seen it on sale at both Amazon and Walmart for around $10-15.

 

Being extremely cheap myself, I understand where you're coming from... but if you enjoy family-friendly platformers I don't think you'd be disappointed if you spent $20.  I know I still would have been happy even if I paid twice as much.

How is best buy for used games as far as the condition you usually get when ordering online? I've never tried them before.

 

I would prefer the PS3 version slightly if I could get it for $9.99, but for only $2 savings I would lean towards new even if it meant getting the 360 version. I rarely buy used games, I've done it through Gamefly a few times with hit or miss results (mostly good), but I was also going for alot more than $2 savings.
