My local store still has a copy of the black armor edition of dark souls, will that be $40 as well?

Does the $10 Eshop card mean that it will be selling for Less than $10, or is it just a deal that they don't usually have $10 cards?

If I'm not mistaken, recently Nintendo started selling $10 eShop cards a few months ago. So there's no deal, just advertised.

Gotcha. I'm hoping to get some eshop Credit on discount. I'm right at the weird place where I'm close to another $5 from the Deluxe Digital Promotion, but not quite there.

Ad cut off the fine print, so no idea. I would assume preorders got it in addition to those who picked it up in store but who knows.

Yes.   20% off new (unopened) games.   10% off used games.

 

I think the only fuzzy area is PC games.   It works now but didn't at one point.

So, to ask the opinion of the group:

 

I am about done with Watch Dogs, and was going to trade it in soon. They have it at $40, so I'd get $44 after the GCU bonus. Does anyone think it'll stay high enough to wait a week? I think it's going to have to stick at about $30 for it to be worth as much as it is now during the 50% bonus ($30 + $15 + $3 = $48). I've never done trade-ins with Best Buy, so I don't know how their trade-in values fluctuate--would this game really tank $10+ over the next week in  trade-in value?

you will not get $48 for it next week.  I would expect the base value to be around $27 which would give you $43 after GCU.

I was always under the impression that CAG has to do with deals and price drops. Posting MSRP via copy/pasting the ad seems silly and redundant. It's also confusing (see: $10 eshop card). Thanks, we know eshop cards exist and that new games come out weekly at MSRP. Lol.

Best Buy deals have really gone downhill ever since lowering GCU price to $30

XBL deals are absolutely shit compared to PSN, but even those have been sucking

DELL is absolutely the worst online retailer for video games. Avoid them at all costs.

Aw, what's wrong...does an internet opinion about video games disagree with yours? Cry more.

You won't see that any time soon. There's nothing competing against it so there's really no incentive to lower the price merely months after release.

Well, GameStop is guaranteeing $40 for Watch Dogs through the 26th, so I suppose I could wait it out and go to them if it fails at Best Buy, if nothing else.

Yeah, you're right...its so confusing to see $10 eShop card at MSRP...no one knows what that means. Everything posted is exactly as it is in the ad so that people dont ask questions about whether something is in there or not. Feel free to post the ad yourself next time since its so confusing lol.

They do take systems but offer a lot less then GameStop. Think a wiiu was like $35 value.

Just take the $44 today. Like someone said the difference tomorrow may be small but it's better than $40 or the risk of it being lower than 44. Think it it as insurance.

I've never seen a regular game net more than $48 with any sort of promotion.  Titanfall was netting that at one point.  Best you can hope for is $45 realistically with 50%.

Probably not. Different SKU's

Last 50% bonus the net values went up for GCU about 12-15%. I was watching a $35 base value of titanfall that went to 28 once the 50% turned on. Ended up being $44.80 after GCU instead of $38.50.

Thanks for that. I'm going to have to see what the game's trade-in is after the week rolls over. I only have 2 more Achievements to get in WD, and one is the drinking game one, which I won't even bother with, most likely.

The drinking game is the easiest, not like chess!

Um, I hear what you are saying, but it's kind of nice to get 1-2 weeks advance notice of the ads coming out.

 

Helps you plan what you're gonna do.

 

Plus we all like to speculate on how we can score the best deals based on them.

 

So, just sit back, relax and enjoy reading CAG.  If you don't like the ad threads, the solution is simple.  Dont open them.

Hmm was going to trade in GTAV for $20, but now maybe I'll wait and see if it gets to around $25.
