Wait did you order the game online for store pick up and went and price matched at the store?

No, pre-ordered in store and about to leave to pick it up.

The best buy instructions are incorrect, you have to enter them in game, under my madden and the redeem code option.


Thanks appreciate it! Now I don't have to go through the hassel of dealing with best buy.

Don't bring logic into this, that's too hard for them.


Why would i sell my vita i got for credit at microcenter ? I got it for free if i sell it then when something come out i want then i might have to pay cash or charge it to get it again

i will just hold on to it just in case

Got my price match no problem, though I wish the guy who did my preorder told me the hassle it would be if i didn't have my receipt on me...

No it's showing $60

The mobile site shows the PS3 version at the price. I was able to use it to PM my Xbox 360 version. :D

It was a great day at Best Buy. Beyond that, I got a little extra off via Splinter Cell 8-).

Anyone else not receive their Bill Walsh DLC?

Also, tried PMing via phone to toysrus but no go. I'm seeing Madden for $44.99 in cart at toysrus.com, but the customer rep said it was $59.99 for her.

The Madden Vita bundle is definitely moving units in my area.

I got to my store, which still has launch units aplenty, around 5 PM. While I was getting rung up, the post-work crowd showed up. No joke - a line of 6 people at the gaming register, all looking for the Madden Vita. Not bad! Amazing what a $50 GC on the hood does for sales. :applause:

$250-$50 gift card along with the madden 13 game on Vita which sells for $40 so that itself makes the PS Vita look like a deal in itself which it essentially is if you can find use for it. I didn't find much use for it when I had one awhile back, but hopefully it'll have better support in the future.

My store WILL match toys r us, lucky times for me!

Edit: how long will it take to receive emailed codes?

2nd edit: ... weird, as soon as I posted the Rice DLC showed up.. 0.o WTF bestbuy?! --- Also, no Walsh code either.

No go on Bill Walsh either. The Rice one came about an hour after my in-store pick-up. Hopefully it comes before I come home from work tomorrow...

Didn't realize we were supposed to get Bill Walsh.

So far I've gotten Luck and Jerry Rice DLC.

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 think we are all in the same boat. I mistakenly wrote that I received 2 Andrew Luck codes, but the second code was for Jerry Rice, No Walsh yet.

Although they say 'Jerry Rice Preorder Bonus: DLC' in the email, it's actually 'Madden NFL 13 Best Buy Pre-sell Pack' they sent out. So you get both DLCs (Jerry & Bill) with the single code. I just verified it by redeeming the code via PSN->Acct Mgmt->Redeem Codes.

I'm so glad I got my Vita Madden bundle at midnight yesterday. I went back to BestBuy earlier to get Splinter Cell and saw that all the Madden Vita bundles were sold out. Crazy how everyone started getting it. I think the $50 gift card was a major selling point along with the free Madden game.

Luck DLC? What's that dlc? Is that emailed by best buy as well (I haven't received that either) - got the PS3 edition.

the Luck DLC was to play as him in Ultimate Team on Madden 12. The content doesn't function in Madden 13. Codes were sent the moment you pre-ordered Madden 13.

It says that it can be used in 13 as well. I am not sure where you got your info?

Well, the same code I used in M12 from the BB email, says invalid code in M13. Not the first time BB wouldn't be on the same page as a developer w/ their DLC content delivery...

Is anyone else having problems with BB's site? I had trouble adding items to cart earlier and kept getting a red banner with an exclamation mark in it. Then I finally got it to go through and ordered it, but in my order status it says I have no orders and I got no email.

Maybe it's only valid with EITHER 12 or 13,but can't redeem it for BOTH?

Walsh DLC and Rice DLC are on the same code. It just doesn't say so on the email.


Thanks, was getting worried myself.

What's the trade-in value of the Madden game, if it's even eligible?

$20 without bonuses. Thinking of actually returning my copy since I haven't open it yet.

So that'd make it $249 + $50 GC + $40 TIV. Not horrible.
