Exciting...but my wife will kill me as I just bought 6 games with the TRU B1G1 deal.
Decisions, decisions....

Hoping for a cheap Resistance or a cheap Hot Shots Golf. A Dual Shock 3 deal would be awesome too.

Well, I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I'm expecting a lot of ass. I really don't feel like staying up all night in order to get a deal.

Most of the deals happen throughout the day except the first one, which is posted at night. But I suppose ass is ass regardless of the time.

There will be some good games available, but games like Heavenly Sword, Ratchet and Clank, and Uncharted will probably be $30 in a few months anyway.

Having missed out on Hot Shots Golf when it was DotD, I'm hoping that's one of these deals. Anything under $30 and I'm sold.

I bet two of the items are that Nyko remote they keep pushing and an HDMI cord. Another one could possibly be that Guitar Hero guitar they had on there a couple weeks ago. I'm going to lol when there is only one game actually part of the deals.

For those who fear staying up all night, Amazon being on the west coast the first deal is 6 AM for them but a much more reasonable 9 am for us....

Do you regularly watch the gold box? They put the same stuff on there all the time. During technology day they had a PS3 deal which was an HDMI cord, they have had the Nyko remote on there at least twice as the PS3 deal, and the R6V2 Collector's Edition has been on there 4 times between PS3 and 360. I guess it would be one more chance to pick that game up assuming its one of the deals.

I'm generally a negative person, especially when it comes to gold box deals for the PS3. I've only bit on one PS3 gold box deal and it turned out to be less then a deal when the standard price dropped a week later.

I'm just glad for Amazons price drop match guarantee.

Same here on both counts.

Make sure to check the LightningDeals.com website late on Tuesday night for an idea of what they'll be.

I hope they have something good. I wouldn't mind getting a cheap DS3, but I hope most of the deals are for games.

Same here, I really hope Hot Shots is the DotD for $26 again.

Watch, it'll be $35.99 just to annoy those of us who missed out on the great deal... (Which while still a great price is nowhere near as good of a deal)

I checked Amazon to see if they carry PSN cards, they are listed but only available from a MP seller ($20 card for $40 lol). Bummer, all I really want on PS3 right now is on PSN. I'd pickup Folklore for $20 but I'm too lazy to keep checking in through out the day.

I'd consider Hot Shots if it was part of this deal. Not really looking for more games though, my backlog is huge and there's gonna be a million awesome games released in fall. I needa restrain myself.

Dualshock 3 for cheap, or guitar hero w/ guitar for $50 or less is about all i'd pick up at this point. I have almost everything that is currently out for the ps3 that i want.

Is Rainbow Six Vegas 2 any good? I passed on it when it was DotD last time, but if it pops up again for $30 or less I'll be debating it.

I am hoping for Dualshock 3 discount or Burnout Paradise. I know Burnout is $30, but cheaper would be better.

I think a pre-order deal on Little Big Planet would be asking a bit too much, but we are all wishing right now, right?

Perhaps AMAZON should read these threads!!! LOOK OVER HERE! FREE MARKET RESEARCH, AMAZON!

The Nintendo-Gold Box Day was an epic failure, imo. Prices were all still about 30% too high for me, so I'm not expecting much. Certainly not looking forward to starting another day of crap deals by getting up at 6 AM again. :(

Probably won't be happy unless they drop a number $59.99 titles to ~$25.99.
