Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread VI

Reading this thread almost daily reminds me how it's nuts how much Black Friday pressures retailers to drop games as loss leaders. I bought six of the $25 games from Amazon (BL2, Madden 13, X-COM, Dishonored, 2K13, and WWE 13), and I'm still not seeing the prices on those games used near those new prices. It helps to have a little cash around Black Friday and the time to sit on Amazon, obviously.

For an on-topic question: Does the AC3 steelbook have any resale value? Is it good enough to justify an extra $7 or so?

Yeah, I regret not picking up Dishonored on BF. I just figured it would sit in my backlog until that price point rolled around again.

Now I have to stalk that page in case that comes back.


Problem is, one CAG who bought it got it totally destroyed. I think that was DealSeaker2U, and another got a pristine one. Pretty bad quality checks.

I'm willing to risk it.

Amazon pays return shipping anyway if that happens, right?

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

It was $18.xx here at the warehouse around that time and I had couple of chances to score it and I didn't. I am still clawing through my backlog or else I would have been kicking myself for missing out on a deal that has yet to repeat itself since.

Yeah I got the one with the tin box destroyed and idd0tt got the one with just a few dings on the tin box. The only 2 people who got it minus any lurkers that I am aware of.

Mine

Happy to have had purchased Dishonored and XCOM Enemy Unknown for $25 each at Black Friday. Very satisfied. These games don't get the credit they rightly deserved.

Also the fact that Dishonored is now considered a "franchise title" and both titles were in nearly every gaming website's top 10 then yeah, I'd it's got the recognition it deserves.

I wonder, though; does Origin work the same way Steamworks does? My copy of the game is digital, so I don't know if it's like Civ V for retail copies, where you have to register the key to your account. If it is, would an AWD copy of the game even be useful?


I have never had an Origin account before, so I guess we shall see what happens when it comes in. Ive never bought a "used" pc game before, so Im not quite sure how it works since usually pc games are basically just a cd-key. Ill keep you posted!

Lol. Didn't seem like. A lot of people around me didn't seem to care about it. Maybe it's just people around my area.
