And only if that price is what is at BB or BB.com, not another competitor. Competitor price match is day of purchase and that's it.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

The real question is when they will formally announce it

Do they get released after March 3rd?

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 they are both releasing next Tuesday. I just want to make sure because this PM thing is a bit confusing.

It is already posted on their website. It is at the bottom of the Price Match policy page.

yeah i won't be preordering anymore games from bestbuy if they arent gonna pm competitors within 30 days. how lame. oh well, way to get rid of a bunch of pre orders. I know a bunch of bestbuy apologists will say well they don't need your business anyway if you were just gonna pm and get the game cheap. but 60-20=40, i might as well wait til it's under $25 eventually anyway. and by then even wait longer til goty edition. most of us have backlogs that are huge but were considering getting some/all of these just cuz day 1 release for $20-$30 is awesome. but day 1 release for $40+tax... i think alot of us can just wait it out.

But, a PM within 15 days is very possible for most of these games. Dead Space already has a $45 PM opportunity 11 days from launch.

The new PM policy does not include competitors.

Mathematically Correct.

You must not have understood the new policy. Post purchase PM'ing won't be allowed on competitors prices, just their own.

Man this sucks. So I guess Bioshock Infinite is gonna be my only preorder from BB for a while. Since I'm silver am I right that I can still PM Amazon or other retailers til April 18th. After that is it correct that we only get 15 days to PM and it must be a BB Pricematch? I really enjoyed getting most of my games for $20 or less sucks its gonna end. At least we can still sell the preorder bonuses to make back some of the funds.

Can someone edit the OP with the upcoming PM details so its easier to find the info instead of reading though pages of forum posts.

That is the old policy, it expires just before the new policy would take effect. There is no official info on the new policy.

Untrue. That is from K-Mart, as such you cannot price match it from a previous purchase.

Ah see I got confused with this in the current statement:

"Best Buy will not price match during the return and exchange period. Best Buy will not price match the online prices of third party vendors (Marketplace Vendors) on Designated Major Online Retailers websites. Not valid on purchases at Best Buy Mobile stores or on Best Buy For Business purchases."

I just saw the other thread too--too bad goHastings isn't listed as one of BBY's online competitors

Hopefully other retailers will follow their lead...

Even if Best Buy did price matched gohastings, the $39.99 price doesn't show up unless you apply coupon code EVANGELIZER. You can PM Kmart though which has the game on sale.

Really? I'm looking at the product page right now and it says the following for both versions above the "Add to Cart" button: $39.99 You save: $20.00

:???:

Either way, I'm giving it a shot.
