Got these during TRU's B1G1 40% Off on Pokemon stuff on Saturday. Most of the TCG cards came from the Starters boxsets, which are really nice and includes a Legendary Treasures booster. You can't see it too well in the pic, but the Reverse Holo cards have changed too. Now, instead of the elemental symbols, the holo design is an actual picture. In Cinccino card, for example, the holo design is of a bow with lace on it. Combine that with the new packaging for the XY collector's stuff and Nintendo is really taking the whole "Beauty" thing really far.

Figured it was time to upgrade my AV Receiver, with a new generation of gaming starting for me on Nov 22nd, so I took a trip to Best Buy and picked this up for $380 or so after tax open box. It is a Harman/Kardon AVR 1710. Very happy with it so far. Much better sound then the Samsung I had been using and works great with my Boston Speakers. Nice having 6 HDMI inputs as well.

I hope it's been cleaned since you posted the pic.  I can't imagine anyone being okay with all those handprints, and smudges from an open box item. XD

 

Get the windex ready! Stat!

Didn't realize it was that bad until I took the picture haha. Cleaned it up since then.

From FYE. Downton Abbey had $54 on the sticker, but it rang up $45. After the Backstage Pass discount it became $40.

From Best Buy. My Mystery RZ GC was $5 and I had $20 already, so I decided to get these two since they were on sale. Well, the cashier, who was new, wasn't paying attention to the screen since she didn't know how to do RZ certs and missed that Continuum didn't scan in the register. Even the vet cashier next to her missed that. Used $10 in certs and got both for $6. Yay.

What exactly are the benefits of having HDMI in receivers? Just curious. I have an older Pioneer 6.1 receiver. Not sure if I want to upgrade since I'm getting a ps4.

As far as I'm aware, you need HDMI in order to make use of all the fancy HD audio codecs that they use these days. This is more a factor for blu-ray movies, but maybe games make use of some of these, too? HDMI just keeps iterating and advancing, so it certainly won't be a bad idea to make the jump and become current.

Fus1on controller from Best Buy clearance.

 

Vita and accessories (cables not shown) purchased used for $130.00. 

 

The Vita both looks and operates like new and considering it came with a 4GB card I can understand why. Needless to say I'll be upgrading to a larger size but in the meantime I'll be transferring between the Vita and PS3.

How much did you pay for the Fus1on controller?

$15.99

 

***Edit***

 

Forgot to mention finding one at this point is an extreme case of YMMV as the deal was posted over a month ago.

Yeah I bought it mostly for an upgrade in sound quality over my other receiver. The biggest benefit is definitely the decoding of DTS-HD master audio and Dolby True HD. Both carry 7 channels of audio on a lot of blurays and it's awesome listening to them. Like being in a theater.

You really won't see much else if your not a big movie buff, you can play most games in Dolby digital but your pioneer would do that with an optical audio cable. It is nice being able to switch right between the HDMI ins. Also my new Harman/Kardon outputs all channels on HDMI so the regular composite in comes out over HDMI so no switching on the TV is required.

Sorry if it's a bit jumbled. Typed it out on my phone.

CoD: Ghosts Hardened Edition Unboxing. I never have very nice things to say about these games or the series, but this is a fairly nice little CE. Also, it feels kind of funny to have PS4 games with no PS4!

Picked up a pack of Pokemon TCG Plasma Blast and got both these in one pack:

I have to say, I normally dislike the 3D art and the Team X cards, but I LOVE the Team Plasma cards.

Man can't wait for next Friday and my Xbox One. Seeing the PS4's makes me a bit jealous.

I bought a Wii Classic Controller Pro for the heck of it with my 25% coupon. It seems they are being converted to used regular Classic Controllers, as the controller I got was brand spanking new with the cable still in its styrofoam sheath.

Paid full price for the system, camera, and extra controller. After the B2G1 deal and Amazon credit I only paid $19.03 for the games!

I went to a Target today to check clearance and they had a end shelf full of games marked as repackaged(almost all of them were still factory sealed)(at least 200). Of those games I was able to get 3 copies of Jurassic Park for the xbox 360(all factory sealed) for only $14/each. These games go for about $30-$45 sealed on ebay(I only knew they were rare because I had owned one before).

 

When I was at ToysRus, I saw about 15 copies of Minecraft (xbox 360) at 2 for $25, so I'll be going back there tomorrow to buy a bunch(currently going for $25 new on ebay).

Assassin's Creed IV Limited Edition for PS4. This is old news for people that grabbed the 7th gen version,  but it's new to me, dammit! It's a nice set, but it also includes things that I don't typically like, and it is also quite spendy at $130!

Also dumped my old 360 and some games to Best Buy for a $184 gift card. Gonna drive up there Friday morning while I download the update and see if I can get an extra controller and maybe AC4:Black Flag LE if they have any left. Saw a PS4 one today but their being slow and not putting XBone stuff out yet.
