That's why I try to buy the games on the sat. they release but it doesn't matter b/c RZ silver is 45 days so I'll be pm'ing Brink & LA Noire to get my $25 back. Also, in for dungeon Siege


Would have waited, but i wanted that free DLC. And im glad i DIDNT wait, seeing as that L.A Noire DLC El Hoardo lives in my area.

forgot about the midnight launch, will you be doing the BB deal with the 5 games get $100 RZ? This is a good way to bump yourself up to RZ silver & get the 45 day return/pm window which will pay dividends on the back end.

I've never pm'd a price drop in the 30 day (or 45, I'm silver too) window before. Who do I talk to about doing that? Is it easy to take care of, or are they going to look at me like I pissed in their corn flakes?

Doubt it, most of the games on the list i was interested in im planning to buy the Collectors/Limited Editions of. And i REALLY dont trust Best Buy with that sort of thing. (They screwed me out of LittleBigPlanet 2 AND Marvel Vs Capcom 3)

I love how Best Buy drops the price of LA Noire RIGHT after the 30 day return period <_<


Buy it again return the first copy price adjust second copy or wait and don't buy day 1 games.

ive done it before, its easy. just go to CS desk with your receipt and the ad and tell them you want to PM the price drop. mention your a silver member so youre still within the return period of 45 days.

Wont work if you got a gift card. Either way, i'd barely lose out on 5$ (Wouldnt even count that seeing as i got the DLC free, and traded it in for 45$)

So, if I paid $60 for L.A. Noire and then got the $20 GC the week after release (PMed some other store's deal), am I able to PM the $40 price? I'm RZ silver, so the price match window isn't a concern. Or is the $20 in GC going to mean they'll view it as me having paid $40 for it?

I highly doubt they let you escape with both, although technically it is different promotions. I did the same thing, bought at 39.99 so now it'd be 19.99 but there's no way I'm fighting that battle :lol:

I traded it in on Amazon for $37 so i'm not stressing over it 8-)

wow $25 GC with 2 3DS purchases. I've been wanting Zelda and DoA: Dimensions so I think I may forgo my Kmart purchase for a Best Buy purchase =).

Not a bad price so soon after for L.A. Noire. Still disappointed I missed out on the kmart deal for it, but you win some you lose some. Wish I could have made it/had time to make it to Kmart for God of War 3 and Uncharted 2 last week. Seen Uncharted 2 at $20 now twice, so I'm sure it will crop again at some point, especially for such a popular title, probably the same for God of War 3. There might be a B2G1 or something to boot. Aww, rationalizing on missing out on a wanted deal.

Dead or Alive just came out, and it's pretty damn decent.

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

Damn.. sucks for us non-silver members who bought it at launch and won't be able to get the 20$ back.. figures Best Buy would pull this s***


Simple solution- don't buy it at launch. Best Buy is pulling s***? Like what? Selling an item at MSRP? Trying to make money by doing so? What crooks they are!

I buy Madden at launch knowing I want to play it right away and also knowing I will be able to find it for $20 sometime later. I have no regrets when I do this.

L.A. Noire is a great game, worth it at full price, even better at a reduced price. Liking the price on TW12.

Hardly seems like a bad deal for anyone who preordered or is buying now.

If you preordered you got a $15 GC, pts towards your reward zone account, the detective outfit, and was able to play at launch. It's about the same as them dropping the price to $54.99 after 30 days. Ppl wouldn't make such a fuss.

LA Noirse is a great game, plus it's a nice break from the GTA series. Well worth $39.99 or $59.99 (w/$15 GC).

Hello, LA Noire. Looks like I'll finally be able to unload the $20 BB gift card that's been collecting dust.




Same...I've been waiting for it to hit $39.99. Perfect timing :)

Makes me glad i traded my LA Noire in too. (And i was able to Platinum it :D). Though, i wouldnt mind being able to get 20$ back too xD.

As far as the other sales, meh. Zelda would be good, but i want to get it at Gamestop so i have a chance at one of those Soundtracks. Might look into Brink or Dungeon Siege though

the soundtrack is registaring at club nintendo dont need to buy at gamestop plus it most likely be up and online soon

You only get to PM once. So you going for th GC means you can't now.

This deal gets so much better now: DLC Case, DLC Suit, $10 worth of reward zone points, $15 GC, and now $39 since I'm silver! Fuck yes

It wasnt posted like that yesterday. I'm sure I read that if you purchase Zelda that you get another $39.99 3DS game for $25 off
