Twisted Metal for $39.99 isn't *too* bad; but was hoping we'd see a $29.99 price next week.

In any case, thanks again! I appreciate you getting these up so soon each week - good or bad - because at least then I know. :)

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

Literally that is the whole ad for Gaming.

I would bet my life on it that the 40% Extra with any preorder trade-in bonus would still be running.

It's worth noting that this is the first week for the April @Gamer's Club Unlocked coupons though. Homefront for $3 and Resistance 3 for $15 are pretty good deals imo.

The Show 12 for $50 isn't TERRIBLE if you're even a moderate baseball fan just because of all the replay value (Road to The Show alone gets it done), but it IS a sports title, so it's value is virtually chopped in half the second you open it. No matter how good it really is, nobody wants it a year from now.
Billy Mitchell is better than you.

Yeah the Show may be the best franchise in all games. It rarely gets much lower during the season. I might bite when twisted hits 29. 39 is still a little high in my book.

On the coupon deals don't Homefront and Resistance both need online codes?may not be as good of deals if that is the case.

Twisted Metal multiplayer is amazing by the way, $40 is a great price.



Patch due soon to get rid of remaining network problems but it's very playable as of now.

This might be getting knit-picky but the title of this thread looks like someone is asking where the Best Buy 4/8-4/14 deals are.

Is the in-store version of Twisted Metal the regular or limited edition? Similar to Crysis 2, darkness 2, etc?

No problem man.

I really want to play this but I know I will never go online and that seems to be where the game gets its value

Does BB's 45-day return period for Silver members include price guarantees? I got The Show at launch and wouldn't mind getting $10 back. I figured it would but never had a reason to try.

Completely forgot about that holiday. Thanks for the heads up.
I'll probably wait for twisted metal to go down another $10.

why won't ANY stores even advertise that they have warriors orochi 3? I would prefer it on sale.

Because its not getting a physical release for PS3 in the US. Might have something to do with it

***NOTE*** that is only for RZ silver members

BB.com is always opend & I wouldn't be surprised if they had some online specials + mid week deals too. Seems to be their MO.

It's worth noting that this is the first week for the April @Gamer's Club Unlocked coupons though. Homefront for $3 and Resistance 3 for $15 are pretty good deals imo.

For those who unaware these are for USED versions.

Most questions regarding the coupons can be answer in the OP's(price, location, dates valid...)

Wow! Last month, i was excited to go to my bestbuy on the 1st week new coupons officially went live.. This month, not only is the coupons not impressive, but also the weekly deal for the coming week is not looking good!! I guess we can't have it all. oh well!
