I'm about to do a replay of Prototype 2 so I can get the [Defeat on Hard] achievement.
I'm only doing the main quests so I'm going to see if I can do the whole main story in one day.
I wonder how long it'll take.


Not long. Especially if you skip all the skipable cutscenes. I did the same as you. Beat the game and did it again on hard. Breezed through it.

I saw a steelbook case for prototype 2. Will it be free if I put up the game next week for 40?

Found this max payne 3 pamphlet when I was at BB today. The gaming rep told me its a pre-order bonus for max payne 3. I told him I have it pre-ordered already so he gave it to me. The pamphlet introduces the multiplayer portion and has 14 pages.

As long as they ring it up with the game it will be free.

I wonder if they'll pull the "one offer only" thing if I attempted to buy 3 prototypes and their steel books with a b2g1 free coupon.

Any thoughts as to whether or not Prototype 2's price will drop for a used copy during the sale?

No. BBY doesn't coordinate their new game sales with their used. There's been countless amount of times where the used price was comically higher than the new price.

tempted to pick up skyrim, but I already have it on the PC. Figure i'll wait for some inevitable complete edition next year.

I got a few questions. I bought Prototype 2 at launch for 59.99 But cant find my receipt. I did pre order it and buy it there. So my question is will there be proof i bought it there on my account info? With that will i be able to get my price match money?

On top of that if that worked would i need to bring the game in?

It will be on your account info as long as it is within the respected time frame and you used your reward number when buying it. Needing the game is YMMV in my experience I haven't needed it, but it depends on who you get I would assume.

I wonder the same on the b2g1. They have been very frequent. It would be great if they came back with the b2g2 they had at the first of the year. Now that was a deal.

BTW that to the OP for another super early ad post. I hope he has this kind of lead time before Black Friday.

If you paid for it via credit card, they should be able to find it from that credit card info. You can also find out the info from the RZ website if you're a member.

If you paid for it via non-credit card and you're a RZ member, you can look it up on the RZ website.

If you paid for it via non-credit card and you're not a RZ member, you're screwed.

You only need the receipt, you don't need the game.

Just do it. It was in my backlog for a while and got to it a week ago. An AMAZING game and well worth the accolades. I would have easily paid full price for this game and not felt gyped. I have sunk 40+ hours into it and I've only basically done a bunch of side quests and haven't even began to delve into the bulk of the main story. It's FO3 on steroids.

BTW I am playing stealth assassin archer and am having a blast picking people off from half the map away. It also takes some skill and adds in flight time (have to judge if target is moving) and arrow drop. It adds skill into the mix which is fun.

At this point, there's like four people who own a 360 that haven't owned or played GTA IV at some point.

Glad you said played. I borrowed it from a friend and got that achievement for finishing the tutorial and stopped playing after that. Ugh 1 achievement on my list RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE

The game Rage is a perfect example of this. New $19.99 Used $34.99 last time I was there. :lol:

I was just thinking about this today but for the PS3! I take it there's no way to hide or delete trophies either.

Since I'm now an unlocked member I should take advantage of the trade in program especially with the 50% off and the additional 10% off being a member.

I have a serious issue with OCD though where it's hard to sell or trade anything in. I hate the fact I paid 60 for something and am only making 26 back. Doesn't sit with me well.

The trade in additional % off stacks, right? 50% and the 10% for being an unlocked member?

Very Very nice.

I'm dumping MLB 12 (vita), Mod Racers (Vita) and Little Big Planet 2 (PS3) and will make about 70ish bucks back. Not bad at all. It will at least pay off my Payne 3 game.
