Did a search for this and didn't find it listed, but if a thread exists already by all means delete this. As for the deal if you pre-order Madden 11 at Best Buy for $5 you get Madden NFL Arcade for free. Reserved for 360, but pretty sure this goes for PS3. The game is on sale for I think 800 MS points this week, but this takes an additional 50% off the Arcade price. Also credit goes to spectreon for informing me of this.

Maybe Amazon and WalMart will pick up on this
Then again they're offering 20 bucks back so maybe not but it wouldn't hurt to have something up front

Not to mention I think you get $10 worth of reward points for preordering for the gamerzone card.

Do you get Madden NFL arcade as soon as you preorder?

Yeah because I don't know if I want Madden 11, but a free Madden Arcade (especially since they updated the roster for free) would be a nice incentive.

Listen to the Checkmate Arcade video game podcast! Also available on ITunes, Stitcher Radio, or YouTube.

you could basically get this free by cancelling your preorder in the future

best buy's preorders arent even preorders anyway, they force you to keep the receipt and use that as a $5 credit when the game comes out

That's because they're not considered pre-orders, but rather "deposits"

You don't have to pick it up right?
I just want Madden Arcade and a case.
Sorry if the question is obvious. I never preordered at Best Buy before.

I'm curious about this too. This might just be the thing that makes me lean towards getting it from Best Buy.

Also, I didn't see anything about this online on the website. Is it in store only?

It is on their site. You get the code by email, so no game case.

Just pre-order Madden NFL 11 for Xbox 360 or PS3 and you'll get an Xbox Live or PlayStation Network code — via e-mail — to download Madden NFL Arcade.


The link keeps messing up when I paste it so just search Madden 11 at BB and you'll see a banner pop up at the top

When I search for it, it doesn't pop up on the game detail page for me. But when I go through to Xbox 360 and go in that way, it shows up. Weird.

They would take the rz points away when you cancel.

I'm surprised that the troll patrol hasn't stormed this thread for "stealing" lol. Sweet find nonetheless!

At my BB, the preorders were kept with the PS2 titles. If you don't see them in the regular places, look around, the employees may not be of any help either.
