That's whats going on with me, they were pending at one point but then they were gone. Not worried though since they're still listed with the transaction.

Looks like a pretty good value LE to me for $100-$20 RZ cert.


I PMed gift card deals like ME3 and MP3 fine in the past.


So do you think these will actually be limited or Microsoft likely gonna reprint?

im not aware of any halo collectors editions that ever became limited. but i may be wrong.

that said most halos collectors editions seem to be found quite easily within the first two years but who knows after that?

though i didnt know what was in the halo 4 one i was going to get it anyway but it looks pretty sweet reading all that now.

I don't work for Microsoft so I don't know but if you base it on past halo limited editions, they were definitely not limited. Like you said earlier, Best Buy is the only one still offering it, so it might be limited, my guess is as good as yours.

For FIFA 13

Do you get the 10,000 in game credits preorder bonus by email or is it a in store promo? I don't see anything listed in the game order page just the while supplies last under the promo on the main Fifa page..

Haven't kept up with these deals, sorry lol

Yeah mine is being weird too. I had 1140 points pending the other day and now theres only 140 points pending and the 1000 points haven't even been issued yet. No worries though as it's still listed on the transaction.

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

I would say FIFA too, but a lot of my European coworkers play PES only.

If you are newb in the sense that you don't watch or play football, you will be destroyed...otherwise the controls are intuitive and easy to learn.

I would say that FIFA is so packed full of features that a beginner would be able to practice and become pretty good in a short time.

They'll still get crushed online but that's a whole different animal, for the single player portions the average player should be able to get up to speed pretty quickly.

hey BB folks, I know this came up a few weeks ago but I forget which thread...

can you contribute to a Pitch In Card with a RZ cert?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I can't believe no where has any sort of deal/coupon offer for DoA 5. Saw it in 0 ads this weekend. Kind of a bummer. I'll wait for reviews since there's not a demo yet (after the NG3 reviews I'm not sure about blindly buying now that Itagaki is gone) before ordering anywhere. Or I might just grab my first FIFA ever. Still not sure.

I would be able to pre-order up to around midnight Monday night and still be good for the offer, right?

Anyone having problems with any preorder mixups or points should go to their local store. Calling the 1800 number is useless and they will not help you. In most cases sending any PMs on BBY forums will not help you.

I went into store and the guys printed out the proper DLC and they gave me the game for 40.

Not sure if I should get re6 anthology. Only RE game I own is 5. I have a feeling the price will drop soon on anthology. I also got burned by Capcom......too many times. Especially with MVC3

I don't know a thing about soccer except for your mom gets the team ice cream after the game.. Downloaded the early release and been playing the ass out if it.

I've played it a few times at a friends house but never actually bought a soccer game ever. You might not be great online not understanding stuff but it's still fun.
