Highly unlikely, since you'll be double-dipping promotions with a coupon.

You might get lucky the first day it's available, though don't plan on it working.

Would be awesome if they would match, but doubtful since their $20 promotional credit already matches most of these titles after 50% off. :-(

Yeah it is doubtful but one can hope right. ;)

That said this is a pretty good deal as well.

Any indication of being able to get a 50%-off game when buying the PS3 bundle?

ha! I think if you did that, and chose BL as the game to take the discount on, that would be a negative deal!! :lol:

and while I agree with shrike, it is interesting b/c it's not like you'd be trying to use double coupons, which is always a hard fight, rather you're counting on an in-system POS discount and then applying the coupon. They would have to scan the coupon before hitting total to apply the package..maybe both would apply..pretty intriguing now..but like i said, not worth the effort or hassle when there are other good games to chose from..

Hmm...good question, it doesn't seem like it :( Probably due to the fact that you're technically purchasing a videogame hardware and the sale is not 'purchase a PS3 get one of these select games 50% off'

Though I would assume that it MIGHT (YMMV) go through the system

Same here. I bought Madden 10 after not buying one since 07 and barely played it. Sports games just can't hold my interest anymore.

not a bad deal. so i'm assuming this also works on pre-orders correct? cause with 500 bonus points ($10 best buy certificate) and the madden nfl arcade on top of it that's pretty good!!

I think I'm in for Madden + Alan Wake. Been thinking about Wake for awhile and didn't know it was 39.99 either. Madden was always a for sure for me anyway, just didn't know whether to get it at Amazon or not cause I hate waiting till 5p.m. for UPS to drop it off.

I want to buy a PS3, but I don't want Madden. Darn you, BB.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

A $40 gift card for a PS3 would be sexier, not that I'd bite.

Yeah, BB usually covers their asses well enough, but it'd be nice to see the exact wording. I mean, is a sale the same thing as a promotion? Is "is" is? One of us CAGs has to be better at semantics than a BB manager! :-k

If one equates Gift Cards to straight-up savings, the TRU Madden + 250 GB PS3 combo would be better than the BB exclusive combo ($349.99), yes?

I didn't enjoy the Madden demo.. nor what they're planning to do with it this year. Same online franchise as last year? Fail. Team online play? No thanks.

NCAA > Madden this year... even being a Maddenite the past 5-6 years. :( Why Madden.. WHY!?

These are not reversed accidentally?

Blur is a GREAT game hope everyone picks it up and jumps online. Still has alot of players online I never have trouble getting full games.

Follow-up question:
Would one still get the 500 bonus points for Gamers Club if they pre-order Madden and manage one of these deals? I'm not keen on sorting out the timelines/arguments necessary for that to work. :D
