Was going to preorder FIFA and then realized it was compatible with PS Move.
How do you play football with the Move? Strap it on your leg? :lol:


I hang dong because it makes it more challenging, but to each his own.

Hmm, I've got 6 of the games on preorder at Amazon. Looks like I need to cancel them and head over to BB.

Anyone know how long best buy online orders take to get delivered? Specifically how long after release date do get them? If I could avoid the drive and long lines I'd get more games.

if you want to get the game as soon as possible after release, you should avoid having shipped to your home.

I asked the worker at my store who seems on top of everything and he says you don't see pending points. It just appears after 30 days


No NCAA had 1000 points pending a week after pickup.

I'm not preordering Borderlands till I at least see pending points.

No $20 for NHL 13 right?


unfortunately no. But damn don't I wish it did!


Me and you both, buddy.


Next best thing is Amazon for a $15 credit + the Bauer pack DLC or something like that.

Not that it was necessary but i got a RZ email promoting a $20 cert with a Black Ops 2 preorder. The amount of $20 was buried in the fine print on the bottom of the email oddly.

Yeah I got that too, was coming to post it.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Not only does it sound better, I just verified that it actually is better.

Did the skyrim collector's edition for ps3 ever drop below $60?
I bought the xbox ce for $25 or $30 but I was waiting on the ps3 version to buy as a gift.

Just called best buy told them about the Madden 13 sale at target and said "alright, well be mailing it to you and you should get it in 7-10 days". I don't even think he looked it up lol. When he asked me "you said target is selling it for $49.99" I almost told him "no $39.99" just because he literally just got my order # and that was it. I was on the phone for like 1 minute and got my email right when I hung up

I wonder why they are mailing you a physical gift card. If you pay by credit card or gift card they just do a price adjustment and credit the $10 back to your credit card or gift card. At least, that's the way it has always been for me. Congratz on getting the price match, though.

That's a pretty tall order. Skyrim is considered by many to be a GOTY for 2011. Not sure if Borderlands 2 can top that realistically speaking.

Now playing:

:ps4: Mortal Kombat X, The Last of Us: Remastered, Evolve

:xb1: Ori and the Blind Forest

The BB rep mentioned that but I had already thrown away the gift card I used a long time ago thinking I wasn't going to need it again

no luck here. csr said i had to wait til sunday because the target employee she called said that he couldn't confirm the upcoming ad yet.

Anyone know for sure if we get the $20 RZ cert with the special editions of black ops 2? The guy that works the gaming section at my store didn't really know (he said he knows the assassins creed special editions are getting the $20 but hasn't heard on blops 2), and it doesn't show it as being part of the promo on the pre-order kiosk. I did a preorder for the hardened edition today but if it doesnt get the 20 RZ cert I'll just go with the regular. I apologize if this has already been covered somewhere in the post.

halo 4 is the only one I definitely will get,
AC3 will be $10 in march like every other AC game i think so that is out.
Borderlands gets boring in 5 days so not spending $ on that until it is like $20
Black ops 2 is a maybe, if i have money i'l get it...
everything else I wouldn't want anyway.

Yeah, it was covered...in the FAQs of the OP.

Does it count on all editions of the game?
The offer is applicable on all Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game such as special editions, limited editions, collector’s editions, etc. (subject to availability). PC, Wii, or any other platform of any of the titles does not qualify as a purchase towards this promotion.

You're welcome!

Idk about other CAGs but I had a difficult time trying to find assassins creed brotherhood under $15-$20 until I finally got it from gohastings for $10 shipped.


That's cause Brotherhood was great, same with AC2. The only reason why ACR was so cheap so quickly was because it wasn't too good. It played a lot like 1, which was extremely repetitive.

It was repetitive because it was the 3rd game in the 2nd series using the formula, lol. Do you think they would have put a lot of time and effort into engineering new stuff for a yearly update to a game using an old engine? Lol

Do you guys think dishonored is gonna be a 8/10 or 9/10 game on IGN? The gameplay and graphics look so sweet, then again I own a PS3 and the game is made by Bethesda so you know what that means.. But if the game is supposed to be amazing, I'd definately pre order this


Bethesda is just the publisher... Which, might mean you should be more worried. Because I cannot think of a single game that Bethesda just published that didn't have serious issues. The most high profile of recent is Rage, which seemed very much to be a love or hate affair. Less recently, Brink and Hunted: the Demon's Forge.

So... Yeah. Not a real history of quality there.
