All three of these were huge. BB for trying to have Brick and mortar compete with online, PSN instant collection for the awesomeness, and THQ for the idea of mid tier developers falling off.

I think all the "all digital" talk for the next batch of consoles is really big too, wonder how it will affect prices.

I'll go with THQ though.

BBY for me as I think I bought every release last year that was on the $20 RZ list. Then 60 days to PM them all down to $40 or less allowed me to make money while playing games. Truly epic. Will be one of those "Do you remember when..." eras for me

Best Buy policy change, that one dug deep.

I need to do some Spring cleaning on my backlog.

Playstation Plus Instant Game Collection because for $50 I can access tons of games that I normally would not buy.

PS+ instant game collection. So much so it made me think about dusting off my PS3 and using it for, you know, gaming instead of a blu ray player only.

I feel the BB PM policy has to be it as since KMart left that became the default place to preorder games for many CAG's (not me) that hate Gamestop and would burn them all to the ground if they could.

I'm really surprised Amazon doesn't match BB's $20 credits to really put the screws to them since they always matched KMart's coupons.

I would assume this is about Butt Buy PMing Amazon now? If so, I could never vote for them because they basically just copied Target. Target announced they were PMing Amazon as part of their regular price match policy, whereas Butt Buy decided to do it for the holidays and then made it part of their regular policy.

Also, every time I walk into a Butt Buy, I want to walk back out.
