Hello my fellow CAG Community! First post of the new year and it's been a LONG time since I posted a BB ad. Not a ton of stuff, but decent stuff none the less, so lets get to it!

Nintendo Wii>>>>>$179.99

Plus get ANY Wii Game $19.99 or below FREE


Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board>>>>>$79.99

:wii::ps3: EA Sports Active 2>>>>>$49.99

:wii: The Sims 3>>>>>$29.99
:360::ps3: The Sims 3>>>>>$39.99

Get a $50 Gift Card when you buy ANY 160Gb PS3

SKU listed is 1237212 though it does say 'any' so $50 GC may go towards the 160Gb GT5 Bundle as well. YMMV


Buy ANY ONE of THESE PS Move games and get a SECOND for 50% OFF
  • The Fight: Lights Out
  • The Shoot
  • The Sly Cooper Collection
  • EyePet
  • Start the Party!
  • SingStar+Dance Party Pack w/ 2 microphones

I can't believe I just bought one earlier tonight. I can just take my receipt Sunday and get the gift card right? Does it matter if I paid with a gift card?

2011 is a good time to get a PS3. I guess it's a good deal if you missed the $100 offers a few weeks ago. Really if I was going to get one now I'd try to get it from Amazon Warehouse.

Yeah of course, bring in the receipt and they'll simply do a return/repurchase so you can get the $50 GC. As far as the paying with a GC the return will show that and still will come up as correct.

Man, what is with EA Sports Active 2? Dropping like a rock. I paid $60 and feel foolish.

That Wii deal is tempting. Can anyone name a quality Wii game I could find in-store for $20?

The House of the Dead: Overkill
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
Boom Blox
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings
Ghost Squad
de Blob
Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars

Not 5 stars A++++ games, but all pretty enjoyable IMHO.

Just some I saw 19.99 on BB.com hopefully most would be in store....

Sweet I bought a second ps3 just a week ago. I'll be going back for my gift card. What should I use it on though?

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
(Wii version was designed exclusively uses motion controls well for an action game)

Rabbids Go Home
De Blob
Pikmin
(if you can still find it, went down to like 4.98 recently, I believe)

No More Heroes
No More Heroes 2
Mushroom Men
Shaun White World Stage
Skate It

(the only good skateboard game on Wii although I did enjoy Tony Hawk Downhill Jam at launch)

The Force Unleashed

(Actually works really well on Wii and the controls to me work a lot better than in the sequel. The only good thing the sequel has over this one is IR control when using the force to control objects and a four player Smash Bros. esque battle mode instead of a 1 on 1 Power Stone wannabe)

Boom Blox

(if you can find the sequel at this price, get it instead but otherwise this isn't a bad choice. Though it's more of an action/puzzle hybrid it's still one of the best puzzle games I've played since Meteos)

yeah figures I couldn't hold off a week from buying the PS3 GT bundle..missed it by one day during the X-mas sale..I'll report back for sure if I get a successful PM for the gift card (and believe me, I will have to be removed from the store if its looking like its not going to happen :lol: )

The House of the Dead: Overkill


That's a winner right out of the box. The NMH games are something else I want to play, but I'll wait for the PS3 version of the first one.

All these discounts on consoles. I wonder if they will do an MSRP price drop soon.

haha where did this come from? just general musings? I think a lot of people think that, but $200 or $150 isn't all that bad for a Go..plus did you hear they hacked it to run 'backed up' games? I just tried it out last night with my 'ahem' backed up games and it worked pretty well, not as hard to do as the PSP-1000 I first hacked was..

So do you think there will be a problem getting the gift card since I bought a week ago? If so I'll just return and re buy but don't want to have to do that.

Nope sorry no ad scan, just the ad in my hand

GT5 Bundle is $349.99: Includes GT5 and Grown Ups (1-disc Bluray)

Keep in mind that these might be a little harder to find, they technically are deleted from the system and will no longer be carried after initial sales have been depleted.

Thanks for the price. That's really not such a good deal. I was hoping these were like a holiday bundle that had the game and movie thrown in free. My local BB still has one of those bundles (one w/little big planet, some other game I can't remember & Cars on blu-ray) for 299.99.

IDK man, I look at it like I'm getting GT 5 and Grown Ups BD for free b/c of the $50 GC, I know some people don't like this math, but when the regular 160gb is $300, I'd rather have the other 2 items for the same price and not worry about a $250 price point after gift card deal..

But with that family bundle you get Little Big Planet, Mod Nation Racers & Cars blu-ray free, PLUS a $50 gift card. Much better deal to me, plus it's 50 dollars less than the GT5 bundle.

sure, sure, and you're lucky to have such a bundle around you. these things were gone right after/during black friday around here..when I was searching must have went to 6 BB's in a week, had nothing but the plain janes and GT5 bundles. I'd pick that last one up if you're thinking about it :)

I really hope BB will do an adjustment on my purchase for this. I bought a PS3 on the 26th. It'd be nice to get a few bucks back.

Any indication that this will also include 320GB Move bundles as well? Really want a $50 gc with one of those.
