Any east coasters waiting out in line for the midnight opening? Can we get a report on how large the crowds are?

All best buys and gamestops are closed in the east coast.

Edit: Litepink just posted the upcoming gamestop AD, RE6 will be $49.99. PM for those who picked it up from BB earlier this month.

you do realize that nearly the entire east coast is being hit by Sandy right? Several GS's cancelled midnight launches


Yes, I guess I should have said eastern time zones....

To those in the path of Hurricane Sandy, we hope you and your family and friends are safe.

As a precaution for our employees and customers, SOME Best Buy stores are temporarily closed

Still looking for an answer to this, but does anyone know if you can use RewardZone certificates to buy a Best Buy gift card? Basically converting it into a gift card.


I tried it when I got the $100 from last year's deal and it worked. I had to pay $5 to activate it or something.

Also, BBY just launched a new preorder system in stores. You can now put down any amount you want up to the full amount (minimum of $5) but can only do that once (can't put down $5 today, $20 later, etc.). Also, it's a different kind of transaction so the whole return/exchange thing will be a thing of the past.

This only applies to titles releasing in 2013 going forward, so all the current titles will still be under the old system.


Can you do B2G1 on pre-orders? And does BBY PM B2G1?
And what are the chances of trying to get AC3 for $40? If anyone posts successfully I will head out tomorrow. I didn't pre-order, but can live without the bonuses.

Same here, I literally just finished revelations a few minutes ago. The ending was sort of like "wtf just happened?" And made me eager to get my hands on AC3


Heh pretty much my reaction. I was going to wait for AC3 to eventually drop to $10, the same price I picked up Revelations for but nope. That ending pissed me off and now I need to know what happens.:hot:

I started printing out certificates in anticipation of ACIII tomorrow and my GF didn't have the points pending from BL2 on her account. I was like ahhhh wtf!? Then i realized that the rep never asked us to sign my GF up for unlocked status when we preordered BL2 and we forgot to ask. So we lost out on $20 cert for her buying BL2. Crap!

My GF is still planning on getting Halo 4 and FC3 for co-op though... suppose its still worth it.

I was able to pre-order assassins creed online. I am excited to pick this up. I loved the first one.

I noticed AC3 is $49.99 at Kmart this week and for one day on Tuesday at TRU. Would I be able to pricematch one of those deals and also get the $20 RZ credit at Best Buy?

I spoiled it for myself since I wasn't able to hit a BB today, yeah I'm definitely waiting till it hits under $15 too.

I thought ME3's ending was ok, but loved the entire game up to that point and honestly I didn't care too much since I had so much fun with the rest of the game. If AC3 is the same way, I won't have any regrets. Besides, I intend to play and finish it quickly and trade it in while the value is still high to get most of my money back.

Yes.


Great, but how will it work exactly? I don't want them to somehow cancel my pre order in the process and ring it up as a new purchase.

When you go up, make sure you bring it up before they start the transaction. I believe I said "Hi, I'm here to pickup Resident Evil 6. I have a preorder for it, and Fry's has it for $50 this week." When I handed them my preorder receipt, I also handed them a printout of the Fry's website for the game to make it easier too. Got those points 2 weeks after purchase too.

Sounds good. I just hope they do it correctly.

Just got back from the midnight release in South Tampa. Was about 10 people including myself. I was able to price match Kmart (make sure to bring it up while they are getting your game) without any issue. My receipt shows exchange so hopefully nothing goes wrong with the rz cert (they assured me that nothing would). Also got one of those limited coins. From what I saw they only brought out two packs which I think contained 10 coins per package.

Spoiler


Also they did print out the DLC code on my receipt. Welp off to play.

For those who pricematched Kmart, did you get a $10 gift card in addition to the $49.99 price?

Don't you just love getting a new game for the PS3 at midnight and popping that baby in just to see it install and watch that line move a mm every 3 seconds...

I don't think every store doing one is getting an equal amount of coins. According to my gaming rep my store got more than 20 coins.

My son Eric makes a huge point! The White Knight mumbo jumbo needs ta stop buster brown. Video Games dont drive stores and scoring the game cheap is interchanged with winning. I get the game cheaper and Im gonna hop online and play it better. Sorry brother, you gonna pay more and us Hamms is gonna play more. :D
