Not sure what's funnier, all the people complaining (c'mon, you really expected something good?) or all the people complaining that people are complaining! Threads like this always turn into a dump of hypocrisy.

It seems like this gold box is more of a gift giving thing than something a person would purchase for themselves. Maybe just a reflection of the time of year.

Ironically, you're complaining about the complainers. That makes you worse than the worse. Haha

I think at this point Gold Box topics should be open season for friendly whining.

Has there ever been a really good one outside of a Black Friday sale? Might as well laugh it up at the Zumbapocalypse, or 8 cents discount off Halo 4.

My son told me he wanted Just Dance 4 the other day.. I wish he would have told me before Black Friday. Wasn't the lowest $25 then? I think MS store had it for $15 though? I guess it's still not that bad of a price for the Kinect version.

I honestly thought that they would possibly repeat some of the black Friday deals.



NOPE.

Any chance Epic Mickey at 1:00 PST is not solely of the Wii variety?

I think there is a chance it will be on sale for all systems, but I doubt it will be much of a discount.

Jeez! Amazon isn't even trying anymore. No wonder they lost my business. So sad since they sort of redeemed themselves during Black Friday with the Vita deal.

I think these Gold Boxes have become a joke to the CAG community but, and this frightens me, games like Dance Central / Let's Dance / Zumba do actually sell well. They just appeal to a very different audience. CAG's get disappointed because the Gold Box events always seem to have the same games (or the franchise's newer edition) but I think these events are really targeted at the more mainstream and casual shopper.

Now that I've shifted most of my gaming over to PC, I've been pretty impressed by Amazon's sales. While they don't often reach the lunacy levels of the Steam summer or winter sales, the weekly deals are usually very good. I think that when people lobby for Amazon as retailer of the year, it's because of the PC deals and the pre-order bonuses (though most of those have slipped from $20 credit to $10 in the past year or so) and release date delivery for console games and not the Gold Box events.

The prices are a joke. I guess you pay more then most cags...

I can honestly say I wasn't expecting these deals.... well played Amazon. Now hurry up and fire the guy who thought that was a good idea. Next time don't hire wal-mart employees to come up with your gold box deals.

I'm curious about Epic Mickey 2's price, but that's about it. I do buy for my library too where I work and Just Dance 4 is a decent price and cheaper than what I bought it for on BF ($24.99) at the MS store. But I am a little flabergasted by all the Zumba games.

Wow I thought you were all kidding around but that is one bad list. They should have at least thrown in a Spyro character or something newish. Though TBH I did just buy my wife Zumba 2, but it was $10 used from Gfly, but it looked like new, which it usually does from them.

ok, so the first zumba sold out and the current one is over 60% sold. Either they have a very low stock or they've got more zumba fans than I thought. I apologize for my earlier statement. The guy who decided to push this crap off the shelves knew what he was doing.

Geez Amazon, just come out and say we're fat and need to lose a little weight.

Did you ever stop to think that there are other types of consumers out there than just you? :roll:

Zumba is a pretty popular franchise with women.

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 swear, when I read the initial post that listed today's gold box items, I thought it was another joke post. However, it's sadly quite real. You would think Amazon would want to kick a** just once on these video game gold box deals, just so people stop poiniting and laughing at them.

I paid $25 for Just Dance 4 on BF from Microsoft. Darn. But I'm probably going to sell it on ebay anyway or return it. I like Dance Central 3 and I don't think I need Just Dance 4 as well.

So wait, if I buy these games, how much will it cost to put a ***** magnet in them? :D #borat
