Bioshock (PS3)

This price adjustment just occurred. S&H is $3.00.

I do not believe this to be a formal price drop since Amazon is still at $44.99.

I just pulled the trigger, it seems like the right deal.

Thanks OP. Nice price but I think that they just confused the PS3 version with the 360 version. The price seems about right for the 360 version at Costco (always slightly lower than MSRP). Whoever wants in on this deal better jump on it before they fix it.

Not sure if the price is the same at the B&M, but you may want to put Costco.com in your title. I was assuming it was a B&M only deal (I was also assuming it was a price mistake or very YMMV, the latter of which it certainly isn't).

That's right around the price i was looking for, so I bit. Used my friend's membership number to save the surcharge... couldn't find any rules that said I couldn't use it. Hopefully I didn't screw over my friend's account :P

Just for reference its an additional $1.40 for non-members. Making the total $34.33. Still a good deal.

I was going to pick this up at Gamestop in the B2G1 sale but it would be used and cost me the same. So I will get a different game instead.

I've heard the extra PS3 content is mediocre at best. ;(

Still... it is a magnificent game and a must buy/must play title.

Thank you!
I just bought this from gamestop last week, was going to be part of my B2G1F deal...not any more.

Has to be a mistake right?
I went ahead and bit, was meaning to get it.

And I've heard the opposite. At ten bucks though, it's pricey.

I picked up the 360 version for $19.98 at Target in anticipation for getting a XBox 360 this Christmas and it's just past the 90-day return window :bomb:

Can anyone verify if it's also $27.99 in store?

give it a shot, employees CAN return it, it's just a question if they will return it.

In for one. Thanks, OP. Here's hoping this isn't some kind of mistake.

Damn this site and its findings of good deals! My account is going to be empty if I keep coming here, and I haven't even finished Xmas shopping.

You think there's a chance this could be in-store as well?

Ok. I called my local Costco and asked them to look it up for me. They said it's an online only item.

I don't recall seeing it in the store anyway. So, you'll have to pay the $3 shipping but still a good deal.

Thanks eau, I was going to check it out, but you saved me the trouble. 30 bucks is a steal IMO.

I'm not sure if this will help anyone but Best Buy will be able to PM. Well they did for me numerous times in the past with the Costco.com website.

Is it a YMMV? I thought they only PM competitors physical ad, and not websites.

Yeah I'd like to know as well, to save on shipping.

I'm sorry, I'll say it's a YMMV for now but in the past I've done this at three Best Buy's in my area and all of them have done so just fine. Just like they match Target.com instead of the physical ad. Anyways I will be trying to price match this a little later so I will let you guys know.

Yeah, definite YMMV. Some will match it, some won't match it because it isn't an ad, and some won't match it because it is Costco (requires a membership to get that price), although if they give that excuse, you might have some leverage to get them to match the non-member price.

Also, as an FYI, the game received a sizable patch that fixes some of the minor problems it had, (blur effect in 1080p, and lots of texture detail).

It's MUCH improved by all accounts.

If the 360 version wasn't sitting on my shelf I'd so have been on this. I think I'm finally going to play it this holiday season (yay for Thanksgiving) seeing as I managed to avoid snagging any games the last month or so. Might as well wait for a deal or at least a cleared up gaming schedule to play some of the greatness of the last two months. Been meaning to get to Bioshock for a while.

Good deal though. Would love to see how it runs on my PS3. Thanks OP!
