Nice, finally a 5-in-one-day deal that might end up turning out really well. Can't wait to see what kind of discounts they'll be giving.

The PSP Square game sounds interesting too...hopefully it will be Crisis Core and not one of the Final Fantasy ports though.

Define "really well." The Xbox still has crappy third-party titles and games aimed at children that 95% of CAG would have no interest in, so what makes you think that those games won't show up when they have in almost every other Gold Box in the past?

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

Well the odds are definitely in our favor here. Out of five chances I'm sure one of them will be something worth while. ;)

This should be interesting - it's times like these that I hate knowing I bought some games at near or at full price and haven't touched em yet.

There usually is...but those are the items that sell out quickly, and it seems like we end up with a lot of people disappointed or upset with Amazon.

Call it pessimism, but after the past few of these promotions I wouldn't get excited until we know what's on sale.

Because if you'll look at Amazon's DotD history, you'll see that a much higher percentage of Xbox 360 games that they've offered have been of higher quality than the other systems DotDs they've had the 5-in-one-day deals for (not to mention there's a higher percentage of titles on the Xbox 360 most CAGers would be interested in). I'm wouldn't be surprised to see a few stinkers as well, but there's still a pretty decent chance of seeing something like Oblivion, Mass Effect, a Tom Clancy game, Assassin's Creed, Ace Combat 6, etc. As long as two or three are decent I'd be happy.

For some reason I have a hunch that we'll see one of the Viva Pinata games in this promotion though...just seems like they'd fit this really well.

Doubtful, they cant go much lower than 14.98 or whatever it is for party animals :(

Hopefully itll be something good..

The most important question to ask is if I can kill someone with the Batrang


Just call my local bestbuy and they had no clue about a sale..

Bully
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Devil May Cry 4

Those are the only three games on the 360 I still want. I hope one of them shows up tomorrow.

I'd be really surprised if Halo 3 wasn't on there, considering the deals we've seen for it recently. Probably Gears too. I'd love to see Lost Odyssey on there, but it probably won't.

Aw, man; I'm planning to buy a PSP on Friday & pick up either Crisis Core or FF Tactics for free at TRU, but I have no way of knowing what FF game will be the Deal of the Day on Saturday...ARGH. What to do, what to do in order to save some money...? :bomb:

Get Crisis Core. Tactics is older, so it's more likely to be the DOTD. If it isn't, well, you've already played Tactics, so you can just wait for a drop.

And I'm getting a PSP next week, perfect timing! :D Well, as long as it's either Tactics or Crisis Core. It could be FF1 or FF2...

That'd be an easy decision...if my brother wasn't pushing me to get Tactics--I cheated to excess on the PS1 version (those stupid Gameshark days...), and the PSP version looks to provide a more streamlined experience than the PS1 version. My brother also loved Tactics to death, and can't wait to try it out on the PSP.

I guess I can always take the chance, though, and hope that Tactics is the DotD on Saturday...I doubt it'd be FFI or II, since they'd sell better together (I'm assuming there's only 1 Square game for Saturday, of course :P).

How do you know that a Final Fantasy game is the DotD on Saturday?
