Sin and Punishment for Wii is the new Dotd for 5$

http://www.bestbuy.c...essor&lp=1&cp=1

I don't think that is a DOTD, more like an unadvertised sale like the Gears of War 3 Epic Edition.

Here is the DOTD page, which does not have the Wii game show up. Kyle from BB also provided me a little info on the new BB DOTD for video games.

The Deal of the Day promotions vary from week to week so, although video games have been showing up in there recently, I wouldn't count on them being in there every week. It's more of an overall Best Buy thing and not specific to any product category.

Essentially its random on when you will see a video game DOTD, but its better than nothing I guess.

I ended up not picking up the Controller after all.
The 32GB Flash drives look promising though.
I still need to pick up a flash drive for my xbox,
slow transfer speed though.

I guess Best Buy has decided to bring back the original DOTD dedicated to a video game deal each day. :bouncy:

Here is the link...
http://www.bestbuy.c...1&type=category

It's currently empty but might update later. The thread is wikied, so anyone can update the OP if they see the new deal pop-up.

Thanks Thesmurf089 for posting.

$5 is a steal for Star Successor, and one of my favorite Wii games. If you don't already have it, you're missing out.

Sin and Punishment: Star Successor Metacritic 87
Gamerankings 85.86%

If I had a Wii, I'd definitely be picking this up.

I saw on eBay that GoHastings was selling this for $4.96 plus S/H (NEW) so while it may be cheaper (free shipping w/ BB) I would suggest picking it up to play and not to flip.

Outstanding deal for S&P. I'm fully expecting BB to cancel my order, but thanks anyway! :D

I don't think they'll cancel. I'd imagine you'll start seeing more deals like this on two year old wii games.

I know Amazon has this listed at $49.99 but that is rediculous and it takes less then 30 seconds to realize that you can find many options to get this game for less then $15 so $5 doesn't seem that unreasonable.

Why would they cancel? Mine already went through and I'm picking it up as soon as the store opens.

Is the game good even if you never played the first?

Yeah you don't need to have played the first to enjoy this one. Its a bit on the short side but at this price its worth picking up. Zapper compatible too.

I bought one this time. Barely sells for $6 on eBay with shipping. No profit to be made. This and Metroid: Other M are always in some bargain bin somewhere. One day Amazon's got it for $50, the next its $13.

Nice find OP, picked one up! Last month Gamer magazine had a $30 off coupon for this game making it 19.99. I almost bought it this weekend! I'm so glad I didn't! Can't say no to $5

This game is worth $5, and if your Best Buy is anything like mine they have copies aplenty. I urge you to order this.
