I picked up the Disgaea 4 Premium Edition for $40 from one of these, so there's hope for one decent title out of the bunch.

It would be sweet if they did an add Vita event.



I can't see a Vita event that offers deals any better than the B2G1. Better to get something unique and interesting.

Doubtful, Amazon sold out of them a long time ago; they're only available through Amazon's sellers now. With half the content being digital, I'd rather just buy the standard anyway. But yeah, while I'm wishing for things, might as well add Dark Souls for $20 to the list.

Well, Cheapy posted this, he must have have some sort of inside info. (Or do they have the announcement of this deal on their site somewhere?)

We need some clues, man.

it is a shame that everything is digital, just cant make up my mind if its worth it or not.

do these sales ever have anything good? im pretty new to this and dont know if i should just wait and see or not waste the time.

You mean World At War, right? Cuz if you're looking for BLOPS for $20, then GS has it(used) for that much.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

They had some pretty good sales over the holidays, but honestly there were so many people shopping that the deals were gone within seconds. Last time they had one of these Gold Box sales for video games, Dead Island was the DotD for $25... I forgot what the lightning deals were.

Usually they're things like a fitness game, a dance game, a game they're clearly trying to unload because it's been on sale three times within a month, and some shooter, usually one that's overpriced. Now that I'm thinking about it, MW3 was one lightning deal at $40 last time, but who really cares when it's been that price somewhere for the past month.

I think the Gold Box events get a bad name because they announce them, people get a chance to hype them up and speculate, and then you end up with about six games on sale and then some crappy buy two get one promotion where everything is overpriced. Generally, one out of every three times there'll be something I consider getting. DI and MW3 last time weren't bad deals, just not for me. I think someone brought up a good point last time that these sales are for Amazon's customers, not really for gamers.

But yeah... Dark Souls. It does suck that a lot of the content was digital. If the standard version hits $20, I'd be a buyer. Maybe try to catch a sale on the hardcover Future Press guide to satisfy the collector in me. Future Press really does do some nice work compared to other hardcover guides I've had.

Hoping for Saints Row: The Third!!! $25!?!?!
Feel guilty that I haven't already bought it since Cheapy is DLC! But, unfortunately CheapyD, someone has instilled the value of getting the lowest price, no matter how long it takes to find!

So you were actually taxed? Was it from Amazon or a third party seller?

I ordered a pair of headphones from Amazon last night and it shipped today (shipping on a Sunday omg) and I wasn't taxed.

Prime 2 day shipping


It was from Amazon and I was taxed...but I did get the free super saver shipping

I feel like i'm in an abusive relationship every time this happens. "Next time will be better... Next time for sure..."


OMG! I am SO right there with you!!!

And here I just got rid of my Wii. To think, I will miss out on a boxing glove to tuck my nunchuck into, or some plastic wang to clip on to my Wii mote.
As a fervent supporter of Amazon, I gotta go with the crowd on this. These goldboxes always suck, and these threads are always good for some terse responses, once the sale items are revealed.

That's wishful thinking... Like posters have stated before, these amazon "deals" aren't that great. I can't remember the last time i jumped on one of these deals.
