I think they followed suit with Amazon after they followed Walmart.

Does anyone have an idea what the general interest level is for evolve?

 

Aside from NIS limited editions and a few exceptions I stopped pre ordering games and just waiting for them to drop in price. But, I am interested in evolve a lot and I know left 4 dead was best in its first 4 months when it was new and a lot of people played it so Im not sure how flush it will be with players.

 

I think if I get it Ill get the PC version.

From what I have heard interest is high. I enjoyed L4D a decent bit, but L4D2 was horrible for me so I personally have zero interest in this game until it's $10-20.

Turtlerock made L4D1 though and valve made L4D2. So Id say its safe to assume this will be just as good since valve has nothing to do with evolve. I agree though l4d2 was god awful and missed everything that made l4d1 so good.

$10 pre-order/purchase request thread is live & there`s a release calendar linked in the OP.

***PLEASE!!! **** Try to limit your requests to titles confirmed for a 2014 release AND list the titles you want vs just saying "everything on the list".
Also, list games for EVERY SYSTEM YOU WANNA SEE including PSVita, 3DS & WiiU(PC versions have recently been added to $10 promos going forward.

Does anyone know for sure if you pre-order a game coming out in december. If I pre-order today at bestbuydotcom using my bestbuy credit card will I be charged interest if I don't pay off that purchase until I actually pick it up in the store. Is it in a pending status until its picked up. (Someone told me this is the case therefore you don't have to pay it off similar to amazons system). However I have received information that said otherwise as well. So which is it?

MK8 was the most recent completed credit add on

20% of the completed ideax are gaming related 75%-90% of the gaming related postings are mainly CAG supported.The last request thread like this was approved with great support have no doubts this one will follow suit.

They already said even if a game doesn`t get the $10 pre-order offer there`s still ways to score instant giftcards, day 1 discounts(buy 2 on release get ___ off or extra mybb pts), targeted trade in promo etc. Having a baseline of what "customers want" allows teams to actively/aggressively go after certain titles.
Dragon Age has a individual one with good support as well I`ve voted on it as well.

Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Master Chief Collection, and The Phantom Pain certificates would get me to cancel preorders at other stores and order at BB.

Update:Regarding a possible increase of $20 pre-order credit(5 for $100 hybrid) or other GCU exclusive credit increases beyond $10.

Diablo 3 Ultimate has also been moved along

The mario kart 8 $10 promo was last minute too but there was previous thread for TLOU & PS4/XB1 GTAv before it got added.

Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Master Chief Collection, and The Phantom Pain certificates would get me to cancel preorders at other stores and order at BB.

You gotta post em there my vote only counts once(and I can`t vote on my own ideax anyways) I`ve told them adding titles will have a major positive effect on GCU & pre-order totals. Basically, they`re saying ok show & prove it again 92 ppl last time can it happen again.

"Would anyone else like to see additional titles added to this promotion? If so, which ones? Remember to vote for an idea if you like it."
That`s all it takes

I really need to be more active here in the BB preorder thread.  Completely missed the price matching of the Wolfenstein purchase.

Pre-ordered Madden and NHL 15.  Had a $65 RZ cert from buying a new washer/dryer.  They put on ONE cert, so I had to get two games ;) 

 

Too bad no love for NHL 15....every damn year.

I find that particular ideax thread pointless as I am sure if they could add it to every game, they would. I am sure they try to get approval from the publisher and the publisher says no or we are giving you this pre order bonus already etc. Or corporate sees certain titles as definite big sellers and see no reason to add it.

They add CoD and battlefield titles, so big sellers wouldn't be a deterrent. They also have other Activision and EA titles on their  list, so that's not it either. I suppose they do it when they think they can drive pre-orders to them or they know the sales profiles on certain franchises compared to overall performance and they think it is advantageous to grab a larger share of that franchise's expected performance.

 

However, enuf has had successful threads with specific titles listed in them before.

Well none of us know why they choose some titles and not others so it's pointless to speculate. And I have yet to see a game added to the list because of the ideax thread. I have seen them all get shot down though.

That's exactly what you did in response to my reply that they decided not to add them.

Since that was 2 whole years ago, no I did not. And that was before gcu came around as well. I am going based off what I have seen since I have been on here and I haven't seen one approved yet in that time frame.

Can you really blame Best Buy for shooting down the ideaX topics on the regular?  Honestly, there are almost 2600 posts in this topic and the topics on ideaX struggle to get 20 votes.

 

I'll admit I didn't even know about it until enuf told me, but we would be better off throwing a vote in rather than complaining.  Most of the posters in this topic all have Best Buy accounts anyway.
