November 6 is the day this changes, per other sites like Joystiq.


More specifically:
http://www.swtor.com...helpcenter/6522

"You will be able to download and play Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ all the way up to level 50 for free, with gameplay restrictions that limit access to advanced features and group content."

So it seems the only reasons to get a physical copy for $9.99 now are:
1. Avoid a lengthy download
2. Includes 30 day subscription
3. Able to play the game and earn "Cartel Coins" during the next 3 months

I figured you'd have it memorized since you were always talking about it and I figured you went though a bit of trouble to get it. Thanks a lot. There's one pretty close to me. Also, if you do an OMS order, will they still charge you on the spot? When I tried to get TERA CE shipped to the store I was at, they told me I needed to pay for it first. And it was coming up as $59.99. If the cabinet is still online at $139.99, they will probably try to charge me that much.


Hey I went to go find it in store to try to OMS but they couldn't find it. They said it would be the store price though :) . Does anyone know where there might be another one Ican try to ship it here? Doesn't matter where its at.

Probably not worthy of its' own thread, but this was PM'ed by Amazon. Free shipping as well.

I have no idea why I want to buy so badly this right now, when it will be free in three months and I have a billion other games to play.

Just a note that Frys has TOR Collector's Edition with the statue and everything marked down to $20. You can't get it online and it looks like most stores are sold out but if you live near one it's probably worth checking anyhow before you bite on the BB deal.

Huh, $9.99. Not bad, though I'm not biting. I had assumed it was going to be $14.99 because the DOTD spreadsheet I had referenced only listed price markdowns in the form of "$25 off," and the store price at that time was $39.99.

Can't complain about it being even cheaper.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

After a little hassle, I picked up my regular edition Looney Tunes blu today. Got backordered like most people, but when I was at the store Monday, they still had some on the shelf. Called support to switch to pick-up and got the worst rep I've ever gotten. The entire duration of my call had his heavy breathing and wheezing. I could barely understand anything he said, but at the end he said to wait a minute for an email from the store and I was good to go.

I get no email, so after a while I call the store. The idiot changed it to ship to store instead of pick-up. The girl at the store goes to the shelf, grabs a copy, and then changes it to store pick-up herself.

Now I have BB support wanting me to call them back about a survey I filled out about the poor service I got from the heavy breather. Don't know if I should even bother.

My Looney Tunes order shipped. I tried to get the LE cause there were 32 at my store. No go. Good news tho

I noticed a few stores near me had Darksiders 2 Collectors Edition as "In store Only". Asked the rep if i could order one and get it shipped to my store. She couldnt get it instore but she did ship it to me. So i got a Darksiders 2 Collectors Edition for Xbox. Pretty sweet

Quick story :)
I remember simply wanting to google a video game hoping to get it for 10 dollars less than msrp. I discovered some site called CheapAssGamer, clicked a link and I see an ad for the next week, bestbuy I believe, and this ad would save me nearly $40. I never got a chance to thank MidnightMetal for that post so long ago as a lurker. But today I would like to thank Midnight for all he does on this site. ;) (it was the mario pic in the signature that reminds me of this story every time)

Frontline hasn't aged well imo but $10 for 2 games is a deal in my book.

Is Frontline on disk or a DLC code? Also, are there certain versions of the PS3 MOH that don't include Frontline?

On disk but you still need to download it. I'm not sure if it's included with all copies or not.

You don't have to download it, the disc will install it to the hard drive. It requires the disc to run.

I will try to update the OP with blu-ray DOTDs from now on since you guys have express interest in them. I will dedicate thread title space for video games first but if space permits I will list the blu-ray deals in the title, too.

If anybody has tips on future DOTDs for video games or blu-rays feel free to post them in the wikied OP. I will give credit for your post as always. Posted Image

Opinions and such but man, I don't understand how anyone can feel that way. The campaign is easily better than 95% of shooters from this gen, and the level design is fantastic.


I haven't played Frontline, but it appears it is not available for purchase on PSN as a standalone game. Since it sounds like an HD remake, It seems like EA and Sony would have both wanted to put it on PSN if it was good enough to sell. Maybe I am misunderstanding and it is not an HD remake.

That being said, I traded my Xbox 360 version awhile ago and may grab the PS3 version to have the game again and try out Frontline. I actually enjoyed the MOH campaign (couldn't get into multiplayer).

Seconded. I loved MoH Frontline on PS2. The combat setups, the AI/animations, the atmosphere/music... makes me want to play it again now.
