I've emailed my rep and will let you know. Probably an error.

But $20 isn't even a discount on it...I'm sure it's not Halo 4, though, as much as I'd like it to be.

Which of these doesn't belong; borderlands (old game), GTA IV (old game) Halo 4 (new game)?

I think their is an error as two of the titles are greatest hits (not sure where the borderlands 2 reference came from) and one is a new(er) release

Ehhh, it's not that popular of a game.

I'm holding out hope there's a sale that will include it but at the same time I doubt many stores will be like "here's a game almost no one wants, get yours today!"

So there's no trade in bonus going on right now right? I want to get rid of Borderlands 2, it makes me motion sick when I try to play it.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Lol @ the BF3 price. It's a 2011 game, dammit.


Skyrim is still $60 MSRP and it came out just a few weeks later.

CoD retains its high MSRP for a bit also.

This is what I have from Best Buy in my inbox:

"Borderlands, Grand Theft Auto IV, or Halo 4 for Xbox 360 and PS3, Sale $19.99, Plus Free Shipping"

Maybe its supposed to be Halo Wars? Click through the link and see...


It's Halo Wars & Borderlands 1, just clicked it.

50% bonus right now, but they dropped Borderlands 2 to $11.00 so $16.50 (GC Unlocked $17.60). Gamestop right now is $23.00 base (360) so that might be a better option.

They turned me down for the free guide when they had the same promotion for Darksiders 2.

I'm planning on picking up some Skylanders this weekend, but I'm confused about these dates. Don't the new ads usually start on Sundays, so it'd be 2/3/13 right? Is this a Saturday only thing?

Gamestop's $75 bonus credit for trading in an older console is a better deal, IMO....at least if you have an older console to trade in. This is a good way to upgrade from an older PS3 with a smaller hard drive - you get 500 GB to play with, a new controller, a year of Plus (fifteen months with the current promotion), and a year of warranty coverage. Once you've traded in your old console, it will cost you about $150.

Amazing that Sony and Microsoft can still charge that much for their hardware this late in the game.

I can't speak for microsoft (I think the 360 is long overdue for a price drop) but I don't know how you can justify calling this PS3 overpriced.

Let's factor the gift card in for an overall value of $270.

How much do you think a reliable 3D Blu-ray player, with WiFi, smart apps, and a 500GB internal hard drive would cost?

Oh yeah and it plays current gen games... and comes with a year subscription to a service that gives you free games...

The PS3 launched at $599.99, while the xbox 360 premium 20GB edition launched at $399.99(Microsoft's console is also 1 year older since it launched in 2005). If you look at the current MSRP prices, the PS3 has dropped about $300-$350 while the xbox 360 only dropped $100-$200.

A PAID year subscription that gives you FREE games...meaning you have to PAY to get access to them. Also Blu-ray players are certainly much cheaper now. As for this being overpriced, I think it is, not because of what the ps3 gives you but the build quality is much cheaper than previous ps3's yet they charge more rather than dropping the price. Lame.
