All the copies at the BB I went to were the Radnet editions. Sadly the steelbook isn't free with the game. :cry:


He's right, however, I just got back from Best Buy where I found a :ps3: copy that was packaged in one of those security boxes with the steel book. I checked out and the steel book rang up for $49.99. Was this supposed to be free with purchase originally? Anyway, the cashier thought it was so he removed it so I got the game and steel book for $5.40 after coupon and tax :)

Haven't used a coupon in months, man it feels good! Didn't really even need Prototype, may never play it, but cheap is cheap. I handed it to the absolute ditz of a checkout girl, who proceeded to ask what kind of game it was, then promptly cut me off saying "I don't care, I don't know what any of that means, I just work with a bunch of geeks." Then her jaw dropped when she scanned everything and it rang up at $5.47. I leaned in and whispered... "It was my privilege."

First coupon I'll have used in a 1,000 years.

Might as well get it in exchange for an old, raggedy cell phone: http://www.bestbuy.c...cat293300050004

I am really surprised. I thought for sure that all those people who have been whining about how awful the Unlocked program is would be on here posting their change of heart. Maybe they haven't noticed the thread today...

I know this deal won't win back a lot of those people who think Best Buy should hand deliver gold bars on a daily basis, but it should help remind people that the program does have some good value (beyond the already good value of 10% off and pre-order certs that people frequently overlook).

I guess I will have to buy another mag and pay $10 total instead of just $5. I switched to digital and cant find the email and my account number to login and get the coups. I dont feel like dealing with cust service either so i wont call. I am so lazy I would rather spend the extra $5.

you only have to click the link in the email to get the coupons no log in required. also does your email not have a search function???

that said thanks to whoever said prototype is 5 dollars. i now have both prototypes in the black log....though i dont remember when i bought the first one lol.

also got the last FF 13-2 novella.

my best buy had tons of the black watch editions left lol

Picked up a copy. Best Buy finally had a good deal for me to use the coupon on. Can't beat Prototype 2 for $5.

It's supposed to package out free with the game still but the issue that you ran into was that the coupon was a separate promo so the register wouldn't stack the @gamer coupon and steelbook together.

Good! They've just been known to do things before when deals are this good.

Or just call them and ask them to hold it for you. They've always been willing to do that for me, and you don't have to mess with canceling and re-buying.

I see stacks of Prototype 2 every time I got to my local BB, so I know it was bullshit when the store locator said they didn't have any copies for PS3. Sure enough, I found one no problem. It was the Radnet Edition and there was at least one other copy for PS3 that I saw.

The steelbook always rang up at $50.00 in the system. The only way it would package out is when you bought the game. If you tried to add the free poster it would not package out anymore without an override.

Would this work if I tried using the used-game coupon on a game only available from BB.com?
