The new Best Buy policy regarding Price matching :)
Sadly they are lowering return times, which I think is bull

PS+ IGC is huge. Also a big deal was the announcement of Vita getting the IGC right before the Black Friday sales, which combined pushed a LOT of CAGs into buying the system.

FerDK nailed it. PS+ owned the 2nd half of 2012. The IGC and later the Vita IGC was HUGE!!!

Best Buy price matching will be huge for me as well. Why wait for shipping when it's here in town?

THQ Bundle

Pretty much was the "Goodnight Sweet Prince" sign

That and all the indie people getting buttmad about it was kinda humorous.

PS Plus Instant Game Collection. What fantastic timing with Amazon's PS Vita Assassin's Creed Bundle for $179! Christmas definitely came early for all us loyal PS Plus members. I can take it one step further and share that I signed up for the Playstation Visa Credit Card offer and received $50 in PSN Credit as well as 1 Year of PS Plus too! Going to renew for another year and get 3 months free tomorrow as well!
