Dang, Best Buy won't let me cancel my Dead Island GOTY copy (I wanted to get it with Prime from Amazon). Oh well, doesn't really matter.


i feel your pain my brother

Noticed they didn't match Gamestop Batman AC GOTY for 20, but they matched DOA5...interesting.
Edit: BAttlefield 3 Premium for 30...or wait for 5 dollar less lightning deal...hmmm

I thought Halo 4 was supposed to come w/ a 20 dollar gift card?

Need For Speed and AC3 matched. I'm tempted on both.

Damn, Amazon price matches Dead Island. Cancelled my order with Best Buy to get that sweet Prime action. =)


What I don't get about this is only the 360 version is Price Matched. None Game of the Year edition however is both down to 9.99. Why the hell would anyone want to buy the regular one for more than the GOTY?

This is frustrating.

Hah, look at Amazon scramble. Three years ago Amazon took all my money on video games. Not so much the past 2 years. Their deals have really gone down hill.


Yeah , Amazon being reactive verses proactive. I also remember when the big A got all my BF money.

I wish Amazon had let us known earlier what they were planning on price matching. I got NFS from Best Buy, but I have a ton of credit to burn at Amazon.

Oh well. Picked up Sleeping Dogs from Amazon.

Because PS3 version is sold out at Best Buy - no need to match that one.

Same here... maybe deal will go up later. That or I guess Major Nelson got the wrong info or Amazon changed their minds.

How do you get Amazon to price match something?


Scroll down on the product page, in the Product details section click on 'Tell us about a lower price.'

Best Buy had their 3 month Live cards for 10.99, sold out SUPER fast. Would've thought it was a lightning deal

Amazon price matched them and they are still in stock.

i don't think so, since amazon doesn't even sell 3DS's anymore.

Just noticed Batman AC:AE for Wii U dropped to $49.99...I'd love to try it on Wii U but I can't bring myself to spend so much again. Hoping for a drop on Zombi U.

Edit:wipeout 3 for Wii U is now $29.99. C'mon, give us a drop on Zombi U or AC3!!!

Since Need For Speed: Most Wanted has already been matched at $29.99 but is still an upcoming Lighting Deal, should we expect the price to go even lower? I just ordered it and I'm wondering if I should cancel my order and wait for the Lighting Deal price.

after adding all 3 games into your cart, checkout, in which it came out to $8.XX + tax. it automatically discounted with all 3 games, why i have no idea, but it worked.


What 3 games? It is so hard to keep up

Target has the White PSVita/Assassin's Creed III: Liberation bundle for 199.99 online. I know people are waiting for Amazon's deal but if anyone's got an itch, go here.

"...I normally open every game I buy anymore...", "...since I ONLY usually...", "...because it's wasn't fun...", "Pretty much sure it does...", "Works always gets in...", "...I acually spelled the my user...", "this will help let more people see it as this more people see...", "You very probably won't...", "...wouldnt have good sales less often due to less competition."

 Please, stop butchering the English language. These are horrible.
