I got the last one! It was in the PC gaming section.

Thanks for the heads up, OP! :applause:

Got the last one at the Folsom, CA store...they made an error at the transaction (didn't get my Rewardzone Certificate at the right point), so the cashier took an extra $20 off, so I paid about $141 out the door. Nice! Can't wait to try this on GT5 once it comes out!

dang, that's sweet, congrats! Envy.... My local BB don't have any in stock :-(

Ok, so it took me searching 3 Best Buys in 2 hours to find one but I got it along with sore arms. x.x

Because Windows is an open standard and XBox isn't.


For now, at least. Just look at unsigned drivers in Windows 7. You have to jump through your own butthole to get them to work.

Bought the last one on the shelf in Fort Myers, FL (US 41).

Just played a couple laps on Dirt 2. Wow! Turns an already great game into driving nirvana. Anyone who doesn't own the game, at least download the demo. You won't be sorry.

Is there a way to check B&M availability for this online? There's usually an option for it but I don't see it here.

I just wanted to say thanks to the OP here and at SD. I was waiting for a sweet price and this fit the bill. I do feel a bit guilty for splurging but this thing is awesome. I've really enjoyed the little bit of Dirt 2 that I have played thus far. THANKS!

Was "backordered" when ordered but shipped this morning.

Best Buy gets a fair amount of grief on here, so I think we have to give them a big :applause: on this one.

Do you need to buy a gaming chair to use the wheels? I bought the wheel but not sure how I am gonna set it up.

No anything will do. It locks onto a table. I've seen some legit setups where they either buy available frames or weld their own with bucket seats.

I would have ordered this yesterday, but it was sold out online and I couldn't make it to a store. A shame...

I'm going to check a few stores tomorrow for this. Where do they stock them? Video games or PC section?

btw; I cancelled my backordered wheel and bought one in store. BB customer service on the phone has always been great. Really fast and effective.

Same here, I fired off an email earlier but the order still wasn't canceled ; call took care of that in all of 2 seconds. BTW for those that are going to have it shipped, Best Buy is going to be taking a bath in shipping the box is pretty heavy.

Yeah wish I had jumped earlier. The only local store that has one says that they are back to 299.99 today. :(

I do remember seeing on the BB site that there was a 2-day sale (Sun-Mon). I didn't see the G27 when I clicked on the link but maybe it was part of it.

FUUUUUUUU

I was just about to head out and look for one of these. Any chance the B&M's will have them tagged at $150?

Oh sweet! That means my back order will be fulfilled! There's a $7 from BCB too, heehee. I can wait anyway. There are a lot alternatives for the stand/table/cockpits.

I can confirm this. Got the the store and they had two left (actually, they only have two since forever), went to checkout and it rang up $299.99. Oh well. I guess BB is not gonna get money from me.

Oh wow that's a shame =(. When I got mine on the shelf it still said $299.99 but when I brought it up to the counter to check, it rang up $149.99. Sorry to hear that guys.

I just picked up one tonight at the Wetmore store here in Tucson, it was in the computer section and the tag still read $149.99. It rang up at $299.99 but they honored the tag price.

It was open box also so that got me an additional $15 off (10%).

I don't know but the manager probably pulled the tags after I left, so YMMV for other Tucson CAGs, maybe try a different store.

Now what are some good PC racing games I could try? I don't have a PS3 just yet :(

Same thing in Simi Valley, CA except mine was factory sealed. They had 1 left. Was marked 149.99, rang up as 299.99 but they gave me the 149.99 because that's how it was advertised on the sales floor. KEEP HOPE ALIVE. Its a great wheel so far.
Insert clever line here......

when i bought mine the box was all dusty. lol guess BB was just trying to clear some stock. I think you can tell them the online price is only 149.99 so they'll price match it. thats what my bb guy told me on the phone
