I'm pretty sure gift cards can't expire in California. Don't know about other states, though.


Retailers can set expiration dates on gift cards in CA as long as it is advertised as "free with purchase" like these and the date is clearly printed on the gift cards. Gift cards that you just go into the store and buy, now those can't have expiration dates.

So...now that it's been out now, is the PSPGo really worth it? Thinking about picking one up, if I could get a used one at GS for 149 would it be a good investment?


I think the general consensus online is that it's better to get a regular PSP and a memory card.

Dear Target,

Please give me Splinter Cell Conviction and Alan Wake for $30 each.

Thanks,

Your loyal customer



Kmart is selling both for 39.99 each with a 20 dollar game coupon for next purchase for each title.

Great deal. I'll be picking up Alan Wake if this is true.

Has anyone seen any concrete confirmation of an ACII game of the year edition?

I have been holding out on picking up the game since I would prefer the GotY, but I seem to rememeber the Fallout GotY at least had some official details floating around by mid-summer.

If the GotY edition is just a rumor, I may just go ahead and pick up ACII before it becomes Greatest Hits.

I'm considering picking up Madden this year. I haven't played/bought a football game since NFL 2K1 or whichever had T. O. On the cover. I'm a few bucks away from hitting silver premier so maybe I'll pick it up at BB.

It is very common to see ACII at $19.99 elsewhere.

I really like mine, but it frustrates me a LOT whenever I see physical media on sale, which is always more often than digital media on sale.

I don't consider that a deal at all. For one I'm forced to buy sports garbage if I want to buy an actual game =\

It's worth it if you're a tool who wants to be locked in to full MSRP on PSP games no matter how old they are...

No one is forcing you to buy anything. Don't like sports games than why enter the tread in the first place. Not every deal is good for everyone. I'd be all over this but I already have it pre-ordered through Amazon with the $20 credit.

Blur is not worth paying full price even with the gift card. Unless of course, you missed out on the best buy promotion awhile back.


So you start by saying that its NOT worth full price, but then go on to say that it IS worth full price if you missed out on the BB deal... I'm confused.

Anyway, Blur is a great game. I've always been a PGR fan and even though this game is very different from PGR, it still has that PGR feel to it. Once you get some decent cars its a blast to play online. Definitely worth $60 with a $40 gift card in my opinion.

I did this last week at TRU. I bought Brutal Legend and got Dead Space for $8.49 then took Brutal Legend back for a full refund of $20.55. If you decide to try it I would go to 2 different stores.

Yeah, that was confusing. I think what he was getting at is that his price point is about $20 net for this game. I think. :drool:

This is how one starts trouble on the Internet, trying to decipher what others have written.

How can they justify Just Cause 2 new for $30 as opposed to Alan Wake new for $20? Just Cause 2 has been out longer and while still being a very fun game, is not a AAA title.

Sunday is the last day for the Power saver sale at Gamestop, right? So would it be possible to match the DJ hero price and also get the gift card?

Probably because Just Cause is far more accessible and reaches a wider audience. There are some who tune out a game if it even hints at being intellectual.

I found Blur to be great fun and played near daily for about 6 weeks until I had been in over 180 online races without a victory.


WOW... I'm pretty sure I got my first online victory the first night I played... You must be either exceptionally unlucky or racing games are not your forte. Blur is pretty forgiving given the powerups, etc.

Why would you spend $60 on Blur? I know you're getting a $40 GC but that comes after.

Price match where? Toys R Us and Gamestop don't do price matching.

No one is paying $60 for Blur. It's $20 for Blur and $40 for the gift card.

DKYang,

You are wrong, you have to pay $60 plus tax and they give you blur and a $40 GC. Try paying the cashier $20 and see if they give you the game.

I pre-ordered my Madden copy over a month ago, so I already got my 500 bonus points. I only put $5 down though, so I can use the $10 off when I purchase the rest of it. So it's only $50 and I assume I can use it with these other deals as well.

there isnt much DLC to warrent a GOTY edition. its just two chapters that seemed like they were intentionally left out of the game to charge for dlc
