How bad is the guitar for Warriors of Rock? $30 not a bad price if it's decent.

Trade in 2 for $20 off is nowhere as good as Amazon's preorder and get $20 credit.

hey, man sorry bout the confusion in the other thread I said amazon needed to offer $35 to equal BB when I meant $25. You get the $100 RZ plus another $25 for the reg. pts & gamers club(actually $.05 cent short unless your RZ silver). There's also 2x RZ points on new games that'll be starting this fall. Your plan on using the credits to make the last 4 games $40 is sound just like the kmart deals but most people doin the BB deal are planning to pm. So all the games will be $40 or less but you still end up with the $100 RZ & out of the $125 total credit in this scenario the end result will be $200 for 5 games + $115 credit.

Honestly, I thought it was a great deal until Amazon chimed in with their $20 gaming credit.

AND, as I mentioned in a previous thread, this trade-in deal comes in 3 flavors. One deal allows you to trade in NCAA '11 for a $20 credit... then there's another where 80 select games can be traded in for $20 each... and the last is the deal mentioned in the original post. Look in your local Target ad for the deal that applies to your area.


St. Louis, MO area Targets are trade in NCAA 11 for a $20 credit. ToysRus is get a McFarlane figure when you buy the game (they say $15.99 value because of their inflated prices, but those figures are $10 at Target/Walmart). Amazon is the way to go for best price it appears.

That's smart thinking, I totally forgot about the rz points you get on top of that.

The Warriors of Rock guitar was my favorite plastic guitar peripheral. The game, meh.

So it's very likely these 3 games will all be back to $60 starting sunday?

1. Infamous 2
2. Mortal Kombat
3. F.E.A.R 3

Making them all $120 b2g1. Plus I'm really unsure about fear 3.

Do they price match if it's during a b2g1. I'm sure 2/3 will be on sale somewhere else.

I probably should just get the hero edition and mortal kombat for $100 tomorrow.


FEAR 3 is a great game. The only downsides I can say about it is that it's not very scary at all and it's quite a short campaign but if you're into trophies/achievements you'll need to beat it once to unlock insane and play it again on insane. Also, contractions which is like horde which ends at wave 20 is quite fun and all the other online modes. Co-op in campaign is really fun too. I think it's worth it, but chances are if you can wait for a price drop and you'd much rather have another game go for it. Just giving you my two cents that this game is worth playing.

Anybody know if these PSP dual packs are in store yet at Best Buy? I just got a PSP from the K-Mart clearance. Would be nice to get these on the B2G1 offer.

Speaking of a nice double-dip that could hav ebeen, Best Buy has actually disappointed me for the first time in a few months buy not coming out with a giftcard offer for NCAA to match Amazon/K-Mart/TRU, etc...I hope some of these 'preorder 5 for bonus $100GC' games have a bonus attached, or the deal won't be nearly as sweet.


I'm waiting to see what deals they have on Resistance 3/ Gears 3, to judge if I will partake in their deal. The lack of any kind of stuff for NCAA 12 isnt a good sign. Hopefully Toysrus will have nice giftcard deals and I can get BestBuy to PM if the Best Buy offers suck.

Anyone know if BB or any other retailer is going to have a PS3 system deal (buy a ps3 and get a gift card or something) this coming weekend?

b2g1? gonna go pick up 3 of those record of ag LE's for $40 and re-sell all on ebay on down the road when they are impossible to find :)

you can b2g1 free on pre-orders?

nope I was thinking the same thing but the fine print online excludes them but if the site accidently shows something that's not supposed to be their...

technically NCAA already comes with $25 credit as it stands with the 5 for $100. But there will be more games that get instant gc's & $10 pre-orders too. Only Zelda has 1 so far but they haven't been announcing the deals this far out. The gc's won't show up till the ad leaks. Best way to play the deal is to go game by game bur don't get TOO greedy leave yourself to where you must pick up games on the back end just to meet the req. to get the $100.

That's true..I got Bulletstorm about a month ago during their 40% off sale but it didn't have the online pass. $30 is still great for the game considering $20 used + $10 pass is still $30 either way. Unless you don't care to play online then that's fine too.

true, my way of thinking is get the game as cheap as possible new or used then get the code for less then $10 so many people flip new games that the codes are useless to them so scoring 1 for $5 or less is not hard. If your friendly with the GS people they even tell you hey, this game came back with a new code buy it used get the code return the game.

WTF... why does TRU insist on giving out stupid, cheap, action figures/toys (i.e. duke nukem, NCAA 12) instead of gift cards. They used to go over the top and give out $20, $25, Buy 2 get a $50 gift card etc. gift cards during new releases.

Well, hope i can return/rebuy Earth Defense Force (I heard it was getting pretty rare for PS3 =/), if so, i guess ill get that, Resident Evil Mercs, and BlazBlue 3DS.

Otherwise, i guess ill just grab some 20$ titles i have been interested in.

If I get anything out of this sale, it'll probably be a couple of PS3 Greatest Hit's titles that I missed out on. And maybe Folklore.

Would be nice the PSP dual packs were in Best Buy though. Buy all three packs, and it would work out to be $5 a game.

Has anyone else's BB's redesigned their gaming section lately? I was in there a few weeks ago to pick up LA Noire and it was 'normal,' but when I went to get Brutal Legend this past week ($4.99), it was a complete debacle. The guy working in the section said they were redesigning, but it was a horrible mess...titles were out of order, used games were mixed with new (albeit obviously marked), etc. Section looked to be downsized too. Anybody else seeing this?

Yeah same here <_<. They just moved a new Counter/Register by the Reserve Kiosk in the game section, so know everything is super cramped. Tons of games arent even on the dang shelves (Took them 10 minutes to find my Instore Pickup order). And took a good 20 minutes trying to trade in games because nobody had any idea what to do. (And the stupid machine wouldnt accept my I.D)

personally, I cannot wait to fill the blank space in my head, because I skipped a lot of great games such as Gears of War Series, Mass Effect Series, Assassin's Creed Series, Batman: Arkham Asylum. For me this B2G1 deal looks like
First Cart: Gears of War Triple Pack+Assassin's Creed Brotherhood+Assassin's Creed 2
Second Cart: Mass Effect 1+ Mass Effect 2+ Batman: Arkham Asylum

I am going to switch games between the carts, to get cheapest variant (I formed carts based on current prices, but it is very likely that prices are going to change)


The new @gamer mag has the $20 off GoW triple pack (making it $9.99 right now) with pre-order of GoW3. So would just buy that outright because at worst you pay $10 for game $5 for gamer mag (usually at least one good flip in the mag to recoup some this month it looks like we are hoping for a dungeon seige 3 mark down or possibly TDU 2) and $5 for pre-order.

So if you are planning to go for the 5/$100 then you would already have the GoW 3 so just bring in the reservation receipt. so $15 for GoW triple pack and the @gamer magazine.
