I personally recommend picking up Dance Central 2, Kinect Sports Season 2, and Disneyland Adventures.

Everyone was happy enough when these games were $25 on sale alone and now that they are B2G1 it is a really good deal. Less than $17 a game

I hate your tags bro. I give them maybe to the second round of the playoffs and thats me being in a good christmas mood.

Back on topic, is kinect sports 1 or 2 better? Depending on the answer I might get both with DC 2, or DC 2, the better sports game, and disneyland I guess.

Think I'm gonna return the DC2 I bought last week & re-buy it with 2 more. My wife is wanting both DC's, is it worth owning the first if you have the 2nd? I think I'm gonna get the Disney game for the 3rd either way, the GB guys made it look amusing. :)

no. you can import dc 1 songs into the second. Thats the one factor that stops me from rebuying the first even when it was $10 this week in that BB outlet sale. These guys also made disneyland adventures look amusing.

Damn. That 360+Kinect bundle is tempting. Especially since I'd be using BB GCs, anyway. Only 199 out of pocket. But I'd have to get a larger HDD, so it would get right back to 300. Nevermind. Not so good of a deal, after all.

I bought KS:S2 and DC2 on black friday online... how hard is it to just do a return/rebuy? I already have disneyland, but I'll pick it up to get the points and it's worth $17 at Amazon.

Trade List: Looking to trade a Flatout steam key :pc: and a Defense Grid: The Awakening steam key for... anything on steam! See what I already have at: http://steamcommunit.../games/?tab=all -- Just send me a PM!

I have a question for the best buy gift card offer for this week. http://m.bestbuy.com...ne-3496958.html

Do you think I can buy $500 in 20 dollar PSN cards and get the gift card? The closest thing on the exclusions list I can see is "gift cards" but those are not gift cards. It also says "no dealers".. would I be considered a dealer?

Going to return/rebuy the DC2 I picked up Black Friday weekend. Will pick up KS2 + a third game. Probably DA to trade in and break even, unless there's something else good or my $10 DC1 doesn't ship. I ordered DA when it was deal of the day last week, but combined it with the B2G1free last week. Anyways, 3 games for 50 takes DC2 & KS2 to less than $18 with tax, pretty close to Walmart's BF price and no mobs!

Thanks, OP!

EDIT: Heads up, right now Kinect Sports 1 trades in for $18.90 at Amazon. More than Disneyland Adventures ($17.50). So you'd actually be coming out ahead if you only really want 2 games like me. Might want to lock in just in case the TIV drops.

PSN credit (and 360/Wii/3DS cards) is considered gift cards for the purposes of deals. I don't know any retailer that treats them like accessories or games anymore.

I wondered the same thing.

Kinect deal is pretty good if you didn't score these titles at Walmart or DotD

They aren't Best Buy gift cards, but they still show up in the system as gift cards. Rule of thumb is anything that has to be activated at the register is considered a gift card.

When the cards went to scan-to-activate, they turned into gift cards at retailers. The older "card in a clamshell" items, which I doubt are long since gone, are still considered accessories.

Darn. I have a $780 gift card that I'm trying to turn into cash.. I'm having trouble finding the most profitable thing.

They have the pieces to take it all the way. It is a possibility :)

Back on topic, I don't think you can go wrong with any combination of those 4 games. Whichever sports you prefer more I guess.

I purchased DC 1 and 2 this week at $24.99 each. Unfortunately, I opened both of them. Although I'm doubtful, does anyone know if BB will do a "sale" adjustment if I bring in my receipt so I can get a third game free? I'd imagine I'm SOL, but assuming its a very very YMMV issue. Any thoughts?

I'd consider Kinect Sports: Season 2 and DC2 if Gunstringer was included. But I don't even see it on Best Buy's website anymore. I wonder if they stopped selling it on its own since it comes with a Kinect now.

Doesn't Best Buy sell Visa gift cards? I'm not sure about all the ins and outs (I'm sure there is a thread out there)... I know it has been said to be a link to being banned from trading at Best Buy, but I'm thinking you'd only be out $5.

And its a maximum $200 I believe nonreloadable, so he have to get about 4 card at 6 bucks a piece.

Thanks - in that case, I just locked in a trade @ Amazon for DC1 for $17.xx. I'll import the songs off of it & trade it in. :)

Hmmm I would think that is a good deal. I will go see if they have them and I can do it.

I bought 2 kinectimals for 25 each a couple days ago. I opened the one I'm giving my daughter so I could add all kinds of extra content from QR codes found on this site. So now I need to buy 2 more, get a free game then return two copies with my original omline purchase. What a pain in the ass. Can I return in store pickup items to the online warehouse or do I have to take them back to the store?

Thanks much OP!

If I'm reading this correctly, that means BB will have the 3DS version of Sonic Generations for $20. If that's really the case, I'll be snagging that one since I believe both the 3DS and console versions are completely different games.
