Thanks for the heads up, confirmed on the bb forums that the website will be updated to $20 bonus.  I was planning on day one for $48 & $10 bonus so this is a no brainer. Beat and dump for profit, sad what this series has become. RTCW was one of my favorite MP shooters.

Am I supposed to be registered to Best Buy's newsletter or was it targeted? I didn't get anything, regardless if this does so happen to come with a $20 Cert, I'll bite if only for the Doom beta.

It's going to be offered to all. Scroll down to related offers.. The mods there pointed to this in the thread questiong if it was a mistake or not on the $20.

All new PS3 games require a relatively new firmware right?  Even Portal 2 needed one.  I would like to get this deal but I only have a PS3 with firmware 3.15 that I don't want to update.

 

Thanks!

I'm definitely going to wait before pre-ordering.

 I'm still curious if those who received the email are registered to a specific newsletter from BB. All I'm seeing is one for DOTD though. 

 

Regardless thanks! Definitely didn't catch that link, guess I'm pre-ordering now.

Quoted from Matt's post over at the BBY forums.

 

"All My Best Buy customers that pre-order are also eligible to receive $20 in certificates! This bonus is available to all My Best Buy customers, even if you placed your pre-order prior to this announcement."

Is that the last firmware that could use OtherOS? I can't remember.

 

But to answer your question, yes, and seeing how 3.15 is from a few years back you can safely bet that any new games from 2010+ will require a higher firmware in order to play. If you really don't want to update, and don't mind buying a used console. Safest bet is to wait for a deal over at Cowboom or AWD and buy a Slim/Super-Slim PS3 for $100 or less.

So we have to go to a physical Best Buy if we want to receive the miniature?  Or are we good if we place it online for in-store pickup? 

in the past I have done in store pickup and picked up the freebie then.  Last time was the Emmet lego figure with the lego movie game.  I had to inform the lady at the register but she eventually found it in the back.

Their free shipping is pretty good, at least recently.  Sometimes they send it FedEx and sometimes it's UPS/USPS Mail Innovations.  The last few times it has only taken 2-3 days after shipment to receive the game and I'm located in California.  If you want it on release date with the free shipping, that's not guaranteed, although in some cases they have shipped my pre-orders out the Friday before and I did receive them on release date..

Do you guys think this will be better on :ps3: / :360: or :ps4: / :xb1:? It'd help to know which ones will be the "ports".

 

I'd say PS4 will likely be the best of the four as the PC version is the lead version and the PS4 is very PC-like in a lot of ways.  

 

Didn't bother researching the last gen versions, but both PS4 and Xbox One will run at 1080p/60 fps if you care about that kind of stuff.

Thanks!  I see a lot of eBay listings for firmware 3.55 or lower so I think that might the last OtherOS firmware.  If I do a reformat with the included disk, I suppose it would require an internet connection that would update to the latest OS?

if they still have some when you pick it up yes. My nearest best buy is 30 mins away and while I would like the figure since it free I am just doing shipping to home since I know I probably won't be able to pick the game up a few days and I don't want to risk going out my way and not get the figure just cause I didn't pick it up the first day. Cause with the $20 bonus I have a feeling alot more people going to preorder now that otherwise wouldn't of.

No brainer with the $20 cert and GCU. Play it quick, trade it back and probably have a few extra bucks to show for it, especially if there is a trade-in promo. Sold.

Wonder if you'll need the game to play the DOOM Beta. Would suck for soooo many people, lol.

so, with GCU, this is basically $48 + tax with a $20 RZ? I wasn't planning on buying it, but that got me to do so. Basically, "$30 out the door"

 

count me in. Thank you

Wow I wasn't even thinking about picking this game up, but GCU 20% off in addition to $20 worth of points makes this a no-brainer.

 

Thanks OP!
