Best Buy's website still shows a $20 reward zone certificate for both console versions of Far Cry 3. Perhaps the crazy among us want to attempt a point-of-purchase PM and then try to get the $20 certificate as well. Probably borderline impossible, but just throwing it out there.

Getting Hitman with credits if it's $28 like NewEgg.

Don't know about Far Cry 3 though.
Not a fan of single file save systems and I heard about an annoyance with the end game.

I think that is more in response to Far Cry 2, because people pointed that out as the primary reason they hated Far Cry 2 :wall:

Do we have any guesses on the Halo lightening deal? Are we thinking it's the Halo 4 wireless controller or a headset or something?

Yeah I could not finish FC2 because of that. But FC3 I played to almost 100% completion.

That's what I was thinking as well but they could have at least added an option

FAR CRY 3 is not worth it. The graphics look like ASS on the 360 or PS3, especially any distance or scenery, and the gameplay is boring by the numbers open world. You're better off playing Just Cause 2, Red Dead Redemption, and Skyrim. You'll get all the same experiences, except each game is much better.

But its the distance scenery graphics that kill it. Plus crummy performance. They should have saved this game for next gen consoles.

I swore I would not buy this game for my 360 unless it was $10. Did I mention the text is full of subtle insults to Americans? Damn French Canadian elitists.

Man, once you've tasted the sweet, sweet honey of Microsoft's "$10" midnight madness game clearance-a-thon and $25 Walmart/Amazon Black Friday ames it's really hard to find a "deal" anymore. I'm surprised NFS hasn't come back down to $25 anywhere since BF.


I'm right there with you. I don't care what anyone says about time machines not existing, blah blah blah. Any price that is more than the lowest price I have ever seen at a major retailer is not a "great" deal, imo.

Not sure what Hitman's price will be, but I am currently playing this game and it is freakin amazing. (Keep in mind this is my first Hitman game, and I absolutely love stealth games like Deus Ex:HR and Splinter Cell.)

Right there with you, to a certain extent, but you can't really compare normal everyday deals to a situation where a certain price was available one time for 15 minutes at 1:00 am. :lol: Still, I know I'll have to hold my nose to pay more than $10 for Dragon's Dogma. :lol:

I just finished Far Cry 3 yesterday and I highly recommend it. That is one fantastic game.
The stealth action in that game is the best fun I have had in a long time. I loved liberating outposts with out being detected like a bad ass.

it seems like most of the prices for the games are $37.99, hitman is going to be around $34.99-37.99

I bet the upcoming lightning deal price on Hitman Absolution is more than the current price for the game on Newegg (27.99). Anyone want to take my bet?

No way this can be the Halo deal right? If so, fail.

In for Far Cry 3, just ordered. I might grab Hitman, but not as interested so only if it's down to 25.

Sadly, I went with Amazon over NewEgg on Hitman so I could get the faster shipping.

The best part of this Gold Box is that I was able to PM the $34.99 price for FC3 this morning on my launch-week copy from Best Buy (I'm a Silver member and within the 60-day PM window), so that's another $5.30 back. Otherwise...meh, as usual.

Farcry 3 for 34.99. Is that a good deal? I am perfectly fine waiting awhile, but if this is as good as it's going to get (until black friday and holiday deals), I will pull the trigger now.

I would really like Hitman, but I'll wait for under $25.

I'm waiting if that helps.

Yeah, I've got my eye on Heart of the Swarm, Bioshock, Gears of War, Tombraider, and GTAV in March so I think I'll wait.

Not sure why I am going to buy them all at release. Microsofts 1600 point promotion is probably helping. I'm not too hyped on Gears of War right now.

So I think I will wait too. Too many games to play.
