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'm wondering about this too. Anyone have an answer?

Would it be worth it to try the $20 off EA games with the vita version?

Is there any way for me to buy DMC at that price to be able to buy RE 6 at $10 and then return DMC without my money supporting Ninja Theory in anyway?

First, that's being a dlck.
Second, your answer lies 3 posts above yours
Third, at least give a honest argument against the game and not the company.

I think that guy was not being serious... I think he was trying to poke fun at those that are trying to get a $10 RE without purchasing DMC.

Yup. I'm not really interested in RE6 nor anything published from Capcom at the moment to be honest, especially since there are rumors of a gold edition of RE 6 coming out soon.

I probably would have bought it if it was an even $40. I have a few games to play right now so I think I'll wait for BB to have a sale in the coming weeks. I really want it though.

When it comes to Capcom games, you always have to expect several versions of the same game being released. Most big games do just 1 alternate GOTY version but Capcom likes to pepper in multiple versions. I've held off on RE6 this whole time for that same reason, I'd rather wait for their "final" release.

As for DMC, the demo is pretty cool but I personally feel like DMC has passed its prime. I feel the same way about God of War. I think that particular genre oversaturated the market when it became so popular that now they all just feel like re-skins of the same game.

I'll probably get DMC one day but definitely not at 59.99...

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Resident Evil 5 (Gold edition) and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 come to mind for me but that's about it.

Sorry, I worded that badly. I meant more than one revision. He acts like all Capcom games are released 3 or 4 times but I can't think of one besides Street Fighter.

got far cry 3 for $30 from amazon and that was one of the best $30 I have ever spent on games. Awesome game, worth even full price $60. It's a shame that because it was released too late otherwise it would definitely be game of the year!

Far Cry 3 sounds like a great game. I'm so tempted to get it, but at this point I could probably just wait until it hits $30.

In summary: $20 off Skylanders Giants starter pack or figure purchase over $100, PS3/360 games that have been on sale for the same or less many times in the fast few weeks, a pair of headsets on sale, and a $35 Xbox 360 wireless controller

I can price match this at Best Buy right? I have a $30 gift card so i can pick up a new controller.

Been looking at the Astro A50s for a while as an upgrade to my Turtle Beach PX5s. The optical passthrough causes popping and the signal strength is wonky, even though I am about 3 feet from the base.

Best Buy raised the price $20 when they added the GC; it was quoted $299.99 MSRP last week. I'm pretty sure they did this so that instead of paying $280 + $20 for the GC, you're paying $300 for the headset and $0 for the GC but I'm not sure if that's bizarre or not.

Anyone here have a reasonable experience with the A50s compared to something like the PX5s?

EDIT: Just to clarify, I don't mean they are charging $320 for the A50s, I mean they claim it is MSRP $320 and you're "saving" an additional $20 when you are, in fact, not. Also, I've never seen them charge $0 for a GC.

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.


Well this is a wrong statement. Both little big planet gotys have been 60. If I am not mistaken, so was Fallout 3.
