Any opinions in which version is best for just dance? Kinect vs move?


Move tends to be better if it's a multi-plat game that has been ported to Kinect. Kinect tends to be better if it was built for Kinect, then ported to other consoles. I'm not sure which category JD falls in.

Amazon's pre order deals might not be as good consistently but overall they drop prices a lot faster, match most advertised prices(if not beat), and allow you to save on thousands of other items not just video games, and computer equipment. Also three day shipping doesn't equal Release Day Delivery. To a lot of people release day has value. Also not to mention flawless customer service with issues(at least in my experience) as a buyer(selling is another thing). If you only focus on pre ordering games then yes Amazon is left behind, but after that first week rarely does anyone beat Amazon without them matching if not surpassing the price.


Disagree, at least on video games. Amazon is often slower than Gamestop and New Egg or even Best Buy on price drops for newer releases. Amazon often just matches days or weeks after the fact. If you live in a no-tax Amazon state, I can see how there would be a price advantage. Other than that, Amazon is pretty worthless for saving money on videogames nowadays. Heck, they didn't even match any of the B2G1 deals this year and Black Friday was basically all matches of other retailers through lightning deals which most people couldn't even get. Amazon has gone from being my #1 retailer to maybe 4 or 5 and the fact that I only have one pre-order pending with them for next year is evidence of how far they have fallen in a really short amount of time.

I am glad I didn't renew my prime service. I miss the days of Left 4 Dead 2 for $10 and free copies of Superbad.

Amazon can offer us great deals, but from a business standpoint, why should they? Amazon is doing great, and they're not even having to throw us crazy deals to make money. Amazon has become a site for the soccer moms, who do not know shovelware, from great titles.

Santa doesn't work for Amazon idiot. If he aligned himself with one store that'd be unfair to the others. One thing Santa is, is fair.

Agreed, I might consider for $30, would buy for $25. I'll just wait till Jan when it is $20.

Has anyone used that Turtle Beach headset? The reviews range from "completely sucks" to "COD fanboy" so I'm not sure who to believe.

Only thing I would consider is epic mickey 2 ps3...I have the first one, but having gotten into it too much, and honestly might just wait for a price drop, sucks that I can't rent it with my pass... & I already own Need For Speed from the $50 newegg price point at release.

My body, mind and soul were not disappointed for the huge pile of pig vomit Amazon has unleashed upon us today.

I have to agree with this. Amazon was outmatched by just about every other retailer this year when it came to preorders, especially since they no longer have RDD-guarantee. They went from setting the standards for deals to rarely even price matching.

This year, I'd give best deals to Newegg or (as much as I hate them) Best Buy. Newegg is definitely worth giving a chance.


Bravo :applause:

Someone who speaks the truth. Too many amazon fanboys at CAG. Newegg has done well this year. Amazon is only good when they price match retailers. That's it. Good prices on books but CAGs don't care about books. :lol:

I do. Buying college books for under $10 then selling them to the school I goto for $60.

But game wise, Newegg is gaining ground.

From what I was told the Turtle Beach has the best sound quality but the for some reason it's very easy to snap them in half.

Well from a CAG/ average gamer stand point this was one of there worst video game lightning days. But from a business stand point they sold out on 3 of those Zumba games and 80% on the other, so pretty successful for them.

So all our bitching is not going to make them change future offering from mimicking this one when they see today's sales results.

Given the nature of this thread I'm sure it's been commented on already but how the Fuck did 3/4 of the Zumba lightning deals reach 100% claimed?

I'm sure someone at Amazon is looking at that and thinking "WINNING"

Guess we know what to look forward to

100% claimed could be 25 copies or 1000 copies. It doesn't really tell us much. I guess they would call it a "success" that they met their target for the day, but we don't really know if this is driving any type of profits or serious revenue for them. My theory is that each department is required to do lighting deals, and whoever is in charge of video games right now seems to give two f%%ks about it - certainly not about what "gamers" want.

edit: their movie lighting deals have been sucking too, so it's not just limited to just video games.

Now I know what you guys were talking about when you were "Waiting for disappointment" lol 4 Zumba deals? The very last deal intrigues me though. Maybe a HORI fighting stick?


It's a madcatz stick, the description matches either the SFxT stick or the MLG stick. Now we just need to know how much we can get it for.
