Regret not picking up Far Cry 3 when it was at $40 a couple weeks ago, time to pick it up now.


Ditto here. I have a ton of games on my backlog though that is telling me to wait even longer.

RE6 was $19.99 last week at TRU wasn't it?


It was but was very hard to find at most Toys R US.


Wasn't that only PS3? I didn't realize it was 360 too. I'm trying to hold off for Archives anyway, but if it was 360, I may have price matched at Best Buy and snagged it up just because.

Does anyone know if Ni no Kuni has any pre-order bonuses at BestBuy? If not than I'm still going to trade in my copy of Dishonored for $26, than use that gift card on a Visa, head across the street to Gamestop and pre-order it there.

I think it's a DLC familiar called Flutterby

Its not that simple, my young padawan. there is a $4.95 fee for the visa gc. $21 dollars, your Visa GC will be.

Straight from the horses's mouth:





QED.


I honestly don't see this to be a problem. I'm sure the boss fights will be way harder and they'll probably even have a "Beat hard mode to unlock super hard mode" or what ever the hell they'll call it.

And for NFS, does that $40 price already include the savings (down from $60) or is it taken off the $40 meaning it costs $20?

As stated before, the $50 off discount is taken from regular price.
Buy 1 title = $40
Buy 2 titles = $70

is that with the 100% and the 10% or without

From the TIV as of right now $16 with 100% bonus ($16.80 w/RZGCU)

I made a decision that I'd wait for the GotY since I only played through the first Borderlands last summer. But man, it's tough I'm jonesing for more Borderlands. I feel like a crack addict. Don't know if I can make it to the GotY edition.

Or instead of waiting for a GOTY Edition of Borderlands 2 get it at $30 and buy the Season Pass for $30. Since the GOTY would probably be $60 anyways. Unless you plan on waiting even longer to wait for the GOTY Edition to go cheaper :roll:

Sorry, OP, I believe Revolution is coming out on the 29th?

The ad definitely says the 27th, my guess is that the DLC code would be available (in BBY system) on the 27th. Will update OP.

That's a great deal. If I didn't already have RE 6, I'd be all over that.

I know there is a fee and I've done it plenty of times before. Also I only get charged $2 since the cards at my local BB is so old... literally no one does or buys Visa cards at BB.

I'm just going to do that so I get the pre-order book from Gamestop.

as tempting as RE6 at $9.99 with the dmc promo purchase, I am going to wait, since i have a backlog. I have a feeling Dmc is going to flop, and could end up being $20 on bestbuy dotd sale

Your options are open here too:

Use a RedCARD (if you have one) to save 5% and free shipping online.

PM at Besy Buy for Reward Zone, etc.

Submit this to Amazon and hope they match it! Not sure how people go about this i.e.- if you have to wait until Sunday to submit.

Finally Far Cry 3 goes on sale! Where was it $40 and how did I miss that?! Damnit!

I'll PM at BB...thanks OP!

I think Far Cry 3 has held it's value more than any game in recent memory. I was thinking about this the other day--what games are still always $60 that came out a while ago...I think Skyrim takes the cake.

On a deal like this, is there anything stopping people from buying DMC+RE6 for $70 then right after walking to the CS line and returning DMC to keep RE6 at 9.99?

I'm not planning to do it...I just thought it would be the first thing in the minds of nasty flippers.

I was planning on running up to Best Buy to PM Gamestop (49.99 today) but now I'll wait till Sunday. I already have a gift card for $32 from 2 copies of Uncharted 2 that I bought at Target for $6 each. Thanks Target!

Buy 1 title = $40
Buy 2 titles = $70


To save from further confusion, it might be best to list the regular price of the games instead of the "save $20" price of $39.99. It is a bit misleading at first so a lot of people may skim over and assume $50 off of the sale prices of $39.99.

Yea, there is absolutely no way I'm buying a season pass. I try avoid DLC as much as possible and those season passes are the biggest ripoff in gaming. But if I can get it on a Complete/GotY disc then whatever I guess.

Yes originally I was just going to wait for the GotY version to hit like $30, but I think i'm going to buy it next week instead. Screw my backlog, they can keep waiting.

I hope it doesn't flop. I really enjoy the DMC franchise and the demo looks really good.

since its not by the original dmc developers and that its not canon with the story i wouldnt be too surprised if this doesnt do well. that being said this game can sell due to its franchise name alone and also i think that ninja theory makes fun games :)

Ninja Theory doesn't really have a good history of making games that sell well... If it wasn't for Sony hiring them to make Heavenly Sword for PS3, they would had been closed down back in May 2005.

I played the new DMC demo and I didn't really enjoy it. I also hate the new art direction they chose, and graphics look very grainy.

No GotY Edition is sold for $60 at launch. They are usually $40 and come out 1 year after release. It's certainly worth the wait since you'll be saving $40 ($60 for the game and $20 for the season pass) and not increasing that backlog till you want to.

I for one am not a fan of Devil May Cry but the new DmC actually looks great. It's everything I do like about DmC with Bayonetta style. Can't wait to get it for $20 or so.

As a fan of the old DMC for ps2 i was worried about the direction for the reboot but I've played the demo and thought it was way badass. I cant wait to get this and buy RE6 for a friend.

Thanks OP , you da'man.

Definitely picking DmC up (I don't understand the hate - ESPECIALLY about the dialog; it's a Capcom game FFS), but I'll probably pass on the cheap RE6 copy...really have no desire to play it. Might snag Sleeping Dogs as well...though I've waited this long, I could probably wait for $20 or less on it...

^ Sleeping Dogs is $19.99 at Family Video, albeit used, still they usually come complete (in my experience) even though it says no manual will be included on the website's listing. You can always check a local store, they usually have complete copies and they'll resurface the disc for you before you walk out the door.

I wouldn't mind :360: RE6 at that price, but spending $64 ($59+tax) on DmC beforehand puts me off on that. If anyone doesn't want a copy of RE6 but plans on getting DmC, let me know... I'll give you a little extra for your trouble, or we can work out a trade.
