They should add Catherine to that list. I'd gladly use my coupon on that. ;) complete with Catherine on the cover. Not the alt version.

Hmmm... MLB11 is in stock used near me according to the site. I have MLB10 The SHow that I paid $10 for over a year ago that trades in for $4, so $4.40 after boost. Which would make MLB11 $3.60 plus tax.

Is it worth it to upgrade for that small of a price or should I just stay with MLB 10? I don't really play it, I think I played it once or twice since I got it.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Why spend any money to 'upgrade' if it's a game you're not interested in playing?

Because it's such a minimal amount and I have a large amount of credit at Best Buy. Granted if the changed from 10 to 11 were minimal and only for die-hard fans of the series/sports games then I can pass. But if they are substantial where it fixes issues or adds new modes or something along those lines $4 is not that much to pay for an upgrade.

I found 11 better then 10. Plus if you have move, the Home Run Derby mode can be great fun with friends.

Though I'm actually more interested in The Show 12 when it gets cheap as I think you can use Move all the time

DW games only drop to the prices they should be when their superior sequels come out. I hate that franchise and I hate the pile of DW games I keep buying because I can't stop.

To that end, good price on Strikeforce if you have the bad taste to be stuck on Koei but there are better Koei warriors games now. Good price on Conviction but since it's down to Ubi clearance tier at $20 new there's a good chance you can get it new. It doesn't have an online pass though, I don't think, and any BB SC3000K reward codes just unlock the rifle six levels earlier. You will NEVER USE THAT RIFLE so who cares.

WaW price is good too

If anyone is planning on purchasing one of the 12.99-17.99 games and has the 10 off $19.99 pre-owned coupon, you should try to use it on one of these games. If you get a cashier to at least try to scan it to see if it works. It might, because with the 10% gcu discount, when you buy used games that are on sale, you get the 10% off from the regular price, so perhaps the the magazine coupons will work the same way. Don't think its worth to try on the 9.99 games as it would essentially make them free.

they need to too many stores have weak selections it's gonna take them awhile to get a stock like GS so they gotta keep their foot on the pedal.

The Show is one of the few games that really gets better every year. 11 is very good and better than 10. I am waiting for the first decent deal on 12 and I am going to snatch it up. Probably the next GS B2G1 will be when I make my jump up.

I don't post $25+ used games. In the Jan/Feb issue of @gamer there was a $20 off pre-owned coupon for gears of war 3. As for Forza 4 and Just Dance 3, I don't think its worth the trouble of finding them in store and better deals can be found online for those used.

FIgured around 20 or under for the first two was pretty good so I just threw it out there. Better than 21.50 for Forza 4? Wow, thought it was still higher than that. I'd try to find a new copy anyway to get the free downloads if it was me though.

Yeah, I'm probably in for Dead Island as well. It didn't have an online pass or free content download when bought new did it? It's either this or I'll get Forza 3 or Mafia 2 if I can find a greatest hits version which had extra content on the discs.

Dead Island does not have an online pass. So $8 dead island is a very good deal for those who can find them in store.:)

Wow.. I've been looking to get Uncharted and Uncharted 2 on the cheap. Gears, Borderlands, Dead Island, Vanquish and Time Crisis are nice bonuses as well.

Wish they had Dead Island within 30 miles here, was tempted when it was $12 used, even more tempted when it's $8. Anybody know if you call a local store if they could transfer it from a nearby store?

Anybody play Socom 4 with the Sharpshooter? If so how was it. I picked up the PS Move Mayhem Bundle from Best Buy for $60 awhile back and have always been interested in picking up this game now that I have the sharpshooter.

Seeing the present inventory at my local BB, scoring Dead Island would be impossible, thanks OP.
