Or it's just MSRP like plenty of other companies do hoping that people with Christmas money and a shiny new Vita won't notice and will buy the games up.


Ehhh, the thing is, when something is normally on sale at BB, it'll say it next to the item. That isn't the case with these. It really appears as if they just didn't update, or never intended to...

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.

the word "sale" does not necessarily mean that there is a reduction of price.

That's why I'm saying, if they never intended to, they're hoping to get people to buy without noticing something like that.

Might be interested in Gravity Rush and Ridge Racer depending on prices.

Maybe Uncharted as well if it's under $20.


You get gravity rush (and a whole slew of other games like chronovolt, wipeout and uncharted, tons of minis and more stuff too) free if your a PS+ member. And yes, you only have access to the game as long as your a PS+ member, but trust me - its worth it.

The only reason I bring that up is you named 2 of the games to buy - that we get for free from PS+.

Can anyone post a screenshot of said email online somewhere?

The deal page says up to 60%. Looking at the full video games list, everything just went live except for the vita games.


Up to 60%? Then technically that means this could be their sale price. I would not put it past them.

The link from the email (that I received) does take you to a bestbuy clearance page. If you choose "video games," the OP's link is referenced correctly.

Thanks, going to call Best Buy and ask them what is going on.

EDIT: So far she see's why I am confused and agrees it makes no sense that there are no sale prices listed. She is looking into it.

In about 30 minutes I'm going to grab some lunch and stop at my local best buy to see if the pricing in store has changed, hopefully.

Good plan. Every time I visit the store, the employees are so knowledgeable about website pricing and sales. :)

Also, I have never seen a price in-store that was lower than the website unless it was a specific store clearance, etc. You usually have to have them price match their own website if there is a discrepancy.

If the prices are great, I will buy ever single Vita game on there I don't have. Really excited to see some sub-$20 prices!!

Her supervisor said "Just because it's listed in the sale does not mean it will be on sale, but I can offer 10% off". The woman is like...that makes no sense, if it's not on sale then why is it in the category for the sale? So she is looking for someone else for me to talk to.

Those games have to be discounted what are the chances that everything else is discounted except all the vita games

I think everyone here has expectations that are a little too high. These 2 day sales or weekend sales never have the good deals. Best Buy's best deals are one day deals or unadvertised (possibly inadvertent) drops. These sale prices will likely be adjusted to $5 or $10 off each game. Then this thread will stay just as active with people complaining about the lousy pricing.

I hope i'm wrong, because there are a few games i'd like to have here, but only if they end up being substantially discounted.

This.

It's like the big "as advertised!" Signs on msrp games.

Is it sneaky? Sure. But it's not new.

I wish I could rate this thread 0 stars. Even 1 star implies that this is some type of deal, which it isn't. These are regular prices.

I just laugh at those signs!

But I'm sure is affected at some point for unaware consumers.

I can't imagine why Best Buy seems to be going under with such killer deals as MSRP Vita games. Amazing...

The woman agreed it should be on sale, the fact that it's not makes no sense. So I am calling RewardZone hoping someone there can help me, if not will call back Best Buy at 3 or so...

Can you buy it now with the 10% and come back later when it drops in price and return it and get it for cheaper with the same 10% applied? :D
