Damn, Wombat, Amazon would not
give me $4.99 back when they dropped Battlefield 3 from $29.99 to $25. The rep went away for a long time, and came back and said that is against their policy. So, yeah, contrary to what Cheapy said, Amazon actually kind of sucks for price matching/adjusting. Any given rep is YMMV as Wombat discovered, but in general they do not do that sort of thing any more.
I tried explaining to them that I could just buy the lower priced one and return the other (with Prime it probably wouldn't cost me anything) but they still refused. I thought I'd save us both hassle and them some expense, but no, they wouldn't budge. So, yeah, not happy with Amazon over that...
And listening to you guys it is shocking how many deals I missed out on despite researching BF for days leading up to it and being at the ready on the computer when things started. I had no idea Brave blu-ray was only $9. I was looking at using some of the Amazon instant video credit that I have but it is freaking $14.99 there - I just can't pay that knowing it was only $9 on BF
But yeah, even though I missed out on the best stuff at the MS store, I did get quite a bit from there. I'm staring at a stack of about 20 right now. Some are for me, some are for my son for Christmas. The rest, I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do with, but I just couldn't pass them up. But I missed Star Wars Kinect (along with Skyrim, Amazing Spiderman, Lego Batman 2, and Star Wars Old Republic CE). My best purchases were Fallout New Vegas Ultimate, Dragon's Dogma, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and Witcher 2.
Just listened to the Sports Champions 2 bit - I bought that. As Ship said, the first one was pretty good. Since the second just
came out at $40 and Amazon had it for $10, that was a no-brainer IMO. One of my best overall purchases from BF, actually.
Cheapy: Love the McKenzie Brothers reference, you hoser! I wonder how many of your younger listeners missed that one. My cousin and I used to make our own Great White North audio recordings back in the day
