I really prefer to have the 360 version, but damn that's a good price.  I like keeping my PS3 collection to strictly PS3 exclusives to keep the wear and tear down on it.  The 360 GOTY version is like $22.  Probably pass on that.

 

I'm not sure how well you trust Amazon sellers, but someone has it as low as $10 + $4.59 for shipping right now.

Got Star Trek PS3 and Left 4 Dead. Seems the Left 4 Dead GoTY just added a survival pack which I don't care for. Glad I can stock up on some local co-op games. 

I thought it was a great sale, despite what some are saying, thanks OP.

Thanks man, but I'll pass on that too.  The CAG in me just won't let me get it for anything more than $10 right now.  I've missed it a few times already at that price, so I'll just have to wait until the next time.

Good idea, with the new systems coming out we can only hope all the older games will drop in price to $10 and below. I'm just hoping re-sellers don't end up with all the copies and start pushing them at 3x their value.

Thanks OP, finally jumped on :360: Otomedius Excellent and grabbed :360: Sonic Generations since site glitches made me miss it during the Microsoft Store sale.

 

Otomedius is $7.50 on Amazon.

Man, you guys need to check the forums more. Just yesterday I think it was it was $8 or $9 on newegg for the Xbox version (GOTY). I passed because, well, even that doesn't seem worth it. I mean, look at the used prices on eBay. There's no demand for it, so it's not worth shit. I could pick it up at any time at a cheap price on there...

Amazon will price match this since it is online only, the only caveat is the games have to be sold by amazon not a third party. Talked to them via chat about it this morning. Maybe this will help for the OOS games.

I've been wanting to play Star Trek so I grabbed that, and the only thing remotely appealing that was available and I didn't have already was Shift 2.  Thanks OP.

Surprised you didn't get 'Cabela'. However, it isn't Shoprunner eligible and, probably, would be here on time so I left it.

I saw it, but I did well enough this weekend that I don't need it. ;)

I was able to snatch up some Lego games to play with the kids.  $10 a pop brand new is a pretty good deal in my eyes.

There are several of the Lego games on the list. Those are popular with the younger crowd. I know my son (6) especially likes the Batman 2 and Indiana Jones 2 Lego games.

Any confirmation on this? I noticed that KOA price jumped back to $19.99 (was 19.79 or something this morning).

I would say it is YMMV, it is what they told me, they ended up giving me a $5 promo credit bc the games I wanted were not offered by amazon and i could not get them through amazon.

I've never price matched with Amazon. Do I call or email them? And what should I tell them from there? "Hey TRU is running a deal, and before I buy KOA and FFXIII-2 from them, I was wondering if I could price match..."

I started a chat with customer service and told them that TRU was offering a 2 for $20 on ps3 games, in particular, 2 games i wanted. I sent them the link to the PS3 sale page and told them I would prefer to do business with amazon (which is true, especially since I have prime and have an amazon chase visa that gives me free points each month). The rep said they could match if the games were sold by amazon (not just fulfilled by amazon0, but could not if they are sold by third party marketplaces.

Thanks OP!  Grabbed Lego Pirates of the Caribbean and Lego Lord of the Rings (PS3) to play with my son.  I'm so so tired of Lego Batman 2, lol.  Both came to $21.35 shipped.

Otomedius is $7.50 on Amazon.

 

 

 

 

$12.50 shipped. Sonic is $16, so ordering both from Amazon would cost me $28.50 (7.5+16+5 ship since it wouldn't qualify for SSS).

 

PROTIP: 20<28.5

Dumb question, but by "chat" do you mean phone call or some sort of Amazon instant messaging system? And thanks for the input.

Cool, I was too late to the party to score on any of the really good deals. But there was some meat left on the bone, for sure. I scored a brand spankin' new copy of The Michael Jackson Experience Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (on  :360:, the  :ps3: copies were OOS) [which is well worth $10 just for the Phantasy Star games], and I couldn't find anything else I didn't already have (that was in stock and worth a damn) so I got a 2nd copy of the new Star Trek Gears of War 3. I never finished the campaign on it, and I let my sister and her boyfriend borrow it a long ass time ago, so I guess I'll just let them keep it. I'm happy with that - 2 brand new games, one of which has 40+ games in it, for $21.40 shipped. Thanks OP!

Everyone else only seeing 7 games available now?  Good thing I put my order in when I did (just a couple hours ago).  I was going to double check the list to make sure there wasn't anything else I wanted but it looks like its all but dead...

Man, that's a really bad selection of games.

 

Edit:

 

What are you people seeing? Everything that's even worth acknowledging has either been $10 or less already. Hell, RE6 is $10 on Newegg now, and The Darkness 2 is $7.50 on Newegg right now. This sale blows... Their prices are so outdated. On sale practically everything on this list is below $10. Dead Island GOTY was just like $8.

where are you seeing the darkness 2 for $7.50 on newegg?

Yeah, they lowered the price on some like Disneyland for Kinect to $14.99 and removed them from the sale. I was going to get Mortal Kombat Komplete but I had already bought Sonic Generations with Saint Row 2. I don't like the Lego games so I'll pass on buying extras. Like everyone else, I've got more games in my backlog than I can play before I end up in an old folks home.
