Just got back from Best Buy. Price matched the WII bundle w/ free Skyward Sword from Target and the $10 GC printed also for Skyward Sword. Excellent deal

I just went with the standard copy of Skyward Sword at Best Buy with $10 gift card. Didn't plan on getting the other edition, but I didn't even see any copies when I was there.

Sorry if this has been poster somewhere else!

Enjoy!

Will wait until it's $20, maybe I'll get it used from Amazon seeing as they're much better games out for cheaper prices. And a proper FPS without MP? Please.
Thanks though.

Decent price...but I would avoid the PS3 version. There is constant texture pop-in EVERY time you move your character. It might not bother some people, but it killed the game for me. EVERY time you move even an inch, the area around you has to re-render the layers of texture. Sometimes they don't render for more than a second and the game just looks awful.

Aside from that - it's really not all the groundbreaking, shooting feels fine but the driving all over the place got really old for me, nowhere near as fun as driving around in Borderlands.

I'd rather deal with 3 discs for the 360 anyday than the PS3 texture layering issue.

Dang it. I should have waited till the Friday or Sat to pick up my RAGE from Best Buy for the 5/100. Some people with Silver Membership should have a day or two to price match.

I don't see this listed in their flyer for this week or online.
Is this a YMMV deal?

Also, did you see the PC version for $29.99?

I'm at Target right now and it had one a Temporary Price Cut tag below it with the dates I put in the thread title. I walk back and look for PC now.

Edit: Yes the PC version has a $29.99 tag as well!

The only reason I picked up the LE because it comes bundled with the motion plus. I didn't know until recently that you needed it to play the game. Plus it wasn't too bad after employee discount. ;)

True. I just know people were looking for this game at that price do I threw it up here.

I have already played through it and enjoyed it.

If you don't mind me asking - what platform did you play Rage on?

I hope I can get this down the line, possibly for free. I wouldn't mind playing this right now, but I am cheap ;)

This game is definitely worth $30, I haven't beat it yet, but I'm having a ton of fun.

It should prompt the cashier after they hit total on the POS. With that being said, check this out. People are going crazy over this bundle. Ebay

Playing this game put me in a RAGE.. poor story, texture issues, and a bad save system. I really like the driving and gun play though.

If you play this game make sure you keep tons of saves. When you finish the game, it ends and it DOES NOT allow you to go back and finish up any races or side quests.

To make matters worse the game doesn't even tell you this before the last mission..

I bought the regular edition. The Best Buy at Chino Hills, CA sold out of the controller bundle. They only had it if you pre-ordered. Oh well.

Just jumped on that Skylanders $50 deal @ Amazon. Had some credit that I was thinking about using for KOFXIII, but I really don't need another fighting game right now after picking up UMvC3 the other day. Plus I just snagged a Whirlwind from Target the other night, so I'm ready to checkout Skylanders. :)

I rented this from Redbox and I would not pay $10 for it. Even DNF was better.

This. It's the flop of the year imo. It'll keep dropping fast.

I picked up Zelda: Skyward Sword LE bundle at my Best Buy. Here's a word of advice to those looking for it. If it is not on the shelf, ask one of the employees to check the back. When I went to my bestbuy, the employee had to go into a box in the back to get my copy and the guide. Ignore the sold out notice online and check out the store to see if they have any. My store had a whole box of them despite the sold out online notice. The sold out notice actually helps here as people cannot order via in store pick up to hold or hoard copies. They have to actually get up and go to the store. Late, lazy bird will not get the worm today.:lol:

If I didn't have one of the newer remotes with motion plus built-in, I would have gone for it. I don't like how it sticks out when adding it to the old remotes. But since I already had one built-in, really no need for it unless I wanted a special zelda remote.
