The ION Drum Rocker is $269, is that the lowest Amazon has gone on that, or any retailer for that matter?

I'm picking up the discounted xbox points card, so thanks again cheapy!


edit: I just noticed this, but as i was checking out gave me this detail about 50% off a magazine subscription, and how they'll send it to my e-mail regarding the details doesn't mention what magazine however.

Then that's pretty much their standard everyday prices.

Playstation 3 Real Arcade Pro. 3 Fighting Stick for $89.99 pre-order? I might just need to bite - I missed my turbo button.

Not that its really worth it, and I believe the price will drop a lot more..... The PS3 Wireless Keypad is now down to 44.99 from 49.99

it's rare that amazon plays games with sales/discounts... but they jacked up the retail price of the xbox 120gb HD to $160, so after 10% reduction it's $144.
After tax it's still over $150, so too high for me.

I mean not to go off topic too much but I'll tell ya what although I bought the 120 hard drive quite a while ago the 20 GB hard drive goes for about 40ish on ebay so if you sell it (and why wouldn't you?) I guess subtracting the price from that in itself could be like your getting a bargin. A lot of people got Xbox Arcade SKU's so those 20 gb hard drives are gonna be of interest to a lot of people who will soon find out a Hard Drive should be mandatory. Just a thought....

I picked up a used 120GB from amazon seller (niagara) for $99 and it looks brand new off an elite. No transfer cable, but I'm getting that free from MS.

BOT: Picked up 2 1600MS cards for $17.99 ea. since they rarely go on sale. Add in no tax and I saved almost $8.

Wow, not having the postorder price guarantee anymore blows. I ordered a bunch of shit yesterday. I emailed them and see what they say, I mean c'mon it has only been 24 hours.

Since i'm in NY, and were one of the states taxed (now) I noticed amazon finally started not taxing the point cards when for awhile they were so that was a plus. Also Muffin-man tell me how that goes because I ordered a few things that have dropped that are still in the process of shipping as of yesterday, so I wanna know if they'll do anything while its still processing.

You may have better luck. I needed to grab stuff for Christmas, so I ordered it with 2 day air. Needless to say it has already shipped. :cry:

I don't get charged tax where I am, so this sale is significant. I can buy 8000 MS points for $90 and save $18 vs buying it in store. 12+1 Months comes to 38.99 vs $54 (inc tax). While most of their stuff haven't changed much, the Wireless Adapter and MS points cards have taken nice cuts, among other things.

ps3 keypad for 44.99 - 10% off - not bad as I haven't seen any sales on this thing yet. I'm still gonna wait it out and see if it goes on sale soon.

Give or take a dollar, that's about as good as it gets. The only time I see it drop further is when you find a deal where you can pair it up with a special payment promo (PayPal, Google Checkout, etc.)

Why the black 360 wireless controller is always more (or as) expensive as the white one?

I wish they had a wired 360 controller on sale. I just bought some new computer parts for a gaming rig and wouldn't mind having a gamepad. Anyone know of any deals on the wired 360 controller?

I'm a bit tempted to buy that wireless keypad. Obviously, no one likes to use mics on PSN (mine has been on mute all the time as a result). I'll wait though, definitely at the low $30s range.
