Was going to post this, but shipping and tax kind of ruins it. Good deal if you buy in store though.

MGS: Peace walker, KH: Birth by Sleep at that price is great. Tactic Ogre and 3rd Birthday is kinda meh.

I was looking further into it and 3rd Birthday MSRP is $29.99 and Tactic Ogre MSRP is $39.99. Both PSP game, one made new from scratch and the other a remake. What is up with that? Does 3rd Birthday suck or is SE trying to milk the Tactic Ogre name?

If you're Premier Silver, you get free shipping, though.

I'd love to see Amazon match all the prices. If so I might be adding quite a few titles to my PSP collection.

Woah, so these are online only? I'm gonna be hitting this up lataz.

UPDATE: Nvm, with tax and shipping it's the same as amazon's 29.99 price tag. Well, 80 cents cheaper, but not enough to make me go with BB.

I wonder if Tactics Ogre still comes with the cards. These are some of the best psp games on sale. Nice timing since the psp had a price drop.

Thats a preorder bonus. I bought my PSP just for that game though and am not disappointed.

I can use $10 gift card on 3rd Birthday and if Amazon price matches Tactics Ogre I should have enough Credit to cover it.

Does Best Buy charge your credit card if you select in store pickup or do you pay at the store? I never ordered off best buy.com but I am in for 3rd birthday.

Dissida 2 is going to be $30 too so S-E just seems to be charging a premium on Tactics Ogre.

I looked it up this morning before I confirmed the order


However, we may pre-authorize your order amount with your credit or debit card issuer at the time you place the order, which may have an effect on your available credit line. When paying for a preorder with a debit card you will be charged at the time you place your preorder. Please contact your credit card issuer for more information.

However, as noted in our Conditions of Use, when a customer places an order, we pre-authorize the order amount to verify that funds are available. Your credit card institution holds this amount as a pending authorization until the order is fulfilled or the authorization timeframe has expired – the latter is applicable for cancelled orders, and the timeframe differs by bank. This authorization may count against your current balance, but you will want to call your bank to confirm.

I'll just wait until I get paid on Thursday.

Thanks. I use my debit card for online purchases (thus why I asked) and I have extra money in it for the occasional video game spending. I will probably have to pick this one up.

Can't pass this up at that price.

I'd be all over 3rd Birthday, but I'm getting the PSN version so it'll play on the NPG.

I pre-ordered Pokemon White off BestBuy.com with PayPal and with in-store pick-up and my card was already charged.

Does anybody know how long this sale will last? I'm considering picking up a title or two, but I'd like to apply the credit from Amazon's GC offer on Pokemon B/W.

Edit - *shakesfist* This ends March 5th.
