Yeah cuz that will help clear the shelves for Amazon right?!?!

Advertising 50% off release day MSRP which is now the new MSRP, LOL, gimmie a fuckn break...

Every retailer from Amazon to Wal-Mart has a shit load of release day copies collecting dust, so I promise you they care when a competitor gets aggressive b/c everyone want get rid of this game ASAP.

BTW, purchasing a magazine is $5, bringing the cost of Brink to $15. Reports have been confirmed that people are double dipping on the coupon by getting hunted + brink and just getting the cashier to scan the coupon twice. Thus making each game $12.50...GC is free if you were implying there is a cost associated with that.


I agree that Amazon is overpriced on those two games and this isn't really a deal, however, I think it's stupid that people keep posting here that the price is somehow gonna drop to Best Buy levels. Amazon is likely not even aware of the deal or simply doesn't care, just like they don't care when they increase all their prices to full MSRP when they match a B1G1 50% off or other deal. People should just go to Best Buy and grab these games if they want the lowest price.

Thinking about biting on Tekken 6, I have the EX2 fight stick but I think I would prefer to be wire free. I watched the youtube review on the tekken stick, looks solid. Don't want to downgrade though. This is the EX2:

I picked it up at toys r us clearance with a coupon for hardley anything. If I do swap anyone have an idea what I should put price-wise on craig's list?

Not a tekken fan so will prolly play it a bit then get the $9 from amazon. Looking fwd to getting MvC 3 re-release. Also like to play old school arcade games like MvC 2, TMNT, X-Men, and Shinobi.

So should I bite on the tekken or just keep what I got? Opinions??? :-k

Can you set that Tekken wireless stick to 4-way for old-schoole games (Pac Man, etc)? I'm guessing not, but if you can I'll pick one up and have it for those games.

Thanks for the info. Went to Best Buy yesterday and they didn't have the @Gamer in stock yet. I would have to pay $5.00 for the magzine and $10 for Hunted. Will go aehad and grab this with no tax and delivered to my door. I will miss the BB points though.

I already have Hunted and have been playing through split screen with my son. It is really hard to play split screen though, because the HUD hides a lot of info. Not a bad game overall, just takes some patience in the beginning until you can level up a bit.

I was going to get Top Spin 4, but then I noticed Virtua Tennis is like $3 more. I'm going to go with that I think.

I heard many copies of Brink at Best Buy still have the Fallout theme DLC inside since they never sold. I haven't opened mine yet to check, but that might be extra incentive since the price difference is only like 50 cents if you have to buy the magazine.

You were correct that the prices were going to update, but incorrect that they would be 50% off as purportedly advertised. Neither deal matches Best Buy even after tax and having to buy the $5 magazine. Pretty disappointing on Amazon's part.

I personally don't like shopping at best buy, and i would never pay $5 for their magazine just to get coupons.

That being said, i'm not going to buy anything listed, simply because next week pretty much marks the beginning of tons of releases of new games.

Also, it said up to 50% (pc is 50% off on both)

Depends where you live. In New York it's a 68 cent difference after taxes for Brink so if you want to factor in that Amazon will deliver it to you, it's not disappointing at all.

How do you figure? Both Amazon and Best Buy charge New York State tax at the same rate. So, it's $2 more at Amazon plus shipping unless you have Prime, you don't get RZ or GZ credit, Shopkick credit, and you don't get a magazine with other coupons that may be useful on other future releases. For Hunted, it's a $4 difference. Of course, many of us were able to get both games for $10 each plus tax using just one coupon, so it was an even better deal ($11 savings) at Best Buy.

Oh yea I forgot Amazon charges tax here in New York since I only used Prime shipping while I was at school in Michigan.

deals of the week: do they last ALL week (when does it end)? Also, does the deal end early if they run out of stock? I want the arcade stick.

thanks!

They end on Sunday @ 2 AM CST. I've personally never seen them ever run out.

I'm still wondering if I should buy Brink even at $10. Rather have Duke Nukem Forever at that price lol.

I'm somewhat tempted on Hunted because I heard it has great co-op on the same system.
