:3ds: Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns never came into stock for shipping, and no store within 250 miles of me carries it (even checked some random zips around the country and found nothing). Why include it in the sale BB?

 

why am I thinking of shaq fu 2 for $16....

Even $16 is too much for a 3 hour game. If you're interested, I would wait for under $10.

bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch.

 

I guess I need a CAG break because the complaining in EVERY thread is really getting to me.

It's not just you man.  This thread is filled with ludicrous replies.  Best Buy has been setting the retail standard of video game sales for many years.  A lot of people can't see anything past themselves though.

I use the newer model Golds. Good sound. No mic in your face and if the battery starts to die it’s easy to plug them right into the DualShock. They also work with the Switch I’ve heard. You can find them for $80 ish even less if eBay has a coupon going on. Good luck.


I have the old golds and they work with the switch. i like the ps4 game profiles as well...though i got a pair of wireless A50s so i only use the golds with the switch

Don’t get me wrong if money wasn’t an option I’d try Astro’s or Hyper X headsets. Golds are good value headsets for a casual gamer like me.

I'm an Astro fan. I also use the Gold Playstation headphones. My friend has Steelseries and really like it. I had TB wireless headset several years ago and it hurt to wear with my glasses. I also got a lot of interference so I'm hesitant to buy TB again.

 

 

Personally I haven't had much luck with tb products. They either don't fit my head comfortably or I get the ones that break. Luckily before the return policy expires. So I don't buy them or tritans anymore.
I have razer and astro. I want to get another razer for my Xbox one to replace the standard headset that came with the system lol.
Oh also check out some ear buds if you like those.

Thanks everyone. I wear glasses as well so I’ll be steering clear of these and keep an eye out for a good sale on some Astros. Cheers!

I’m pretty sure I remember it being available for shipping right when early access started Thursday. I was back and forth on rather I wanted it and when I checked that morning it was sold out.

After Black Friday, Best Buy usually always has a $50 off sale on Astros.  Only consistent sale I see on them.

Seems to be a trend around here. It's why I post less and less frequently. I have picked up tons of games for my backlog this year alone so I dont know where all this bitchin is coming from on almost every thread.

Am I the only one who actually like to visit Best Buy stores?  GCU was awesome while it lasted.  Maybe they can do some better sale prices from time to time since they know they don't have to build in a buffer in the price for all the folks with GCU

Agreed. Not sure where one would have gotten games cheaper on a consistent basis with a small investment in GCU. Of course the cancellation of GCU is a downer but I think they'll come up with something else before the last membership expires.

Nope, I do too. It's fun to browse, scope out the open box, etc. Of course, since I like looking through the media more than anything, it kinda sucks Best Buy is minimizing those footprints in stores ...

eBay is where to do it but hit up pawn shops, craigslist, facebook marketplace etc.
 

It's a little more work but the payout is a lot more. You'd be surprised how many people will sell stuff like 3DS XL lots with a boaload of valuable games for $100 or less.

You can't point to the past and assume that's the current situation. They did set the standard (which I mentioned already BTW) but are now competing against themselves.

If you guys perceive objectively negative assessment of the current situation as "complaining", you need some more context in your life. Only young people without a willingness to learn or lightly debate see that as "negative" and "harshing my mellow man". Grow up; either reply with something fruitful, or move along. The blanket statement "this thread is filled with ludicrous replies" is in fact ludicrous - it offers nothing.

So in 2020 or 2021? You know they can't wait that long, right?

i would be surprised if gcu (at least in its current 20% form) is still around at all in 2019 regardless how long one many have extended their memberships

I have GCU through 2020.   They also have a new program in the works.  Best Buy rocks.  Amazon is the one PM'ing them, instead of having their own sales.  Complain more.  Grow up, yourself.  People like you bring this site down.  How's that for fruitful? 

 

You can Fuck right off.

This is what I suspect. They'll officially remove the program next year and "compensation" those of us with time left by giving a coupon or discount on their new service.

Who's the one being a bitch?That'd be you.

What kind of loser misuses the buying/selling feedback system to leave a negative just because he (or she!) is a shaqing baby. The kind of loser that is CheepyDee!

 

edit: Cheepydee has since removed the feedback and so I've removed the link to it. I figured that may happen so I screen capped it. https://i.imgur.com/acW6muX.jpg

 

p.s. Screaming? I purposely used small letters. 

 

p.p.s. Learn to use the multiQuote function you zilch.

doubtful, people here are kinda delusional. they really think best buy cares that they wont be buying games that they weren't making money on anyway. They threaten to not buy anything else at the store, when really they probably only bought things that were price errors or clearance, so again no loss to best buy. If they did actually shop at best buy, it was because the price was the best there and nobody is going to pay more somewhere else just because of principles.

It's not just people here, the gamestop thread is constantly talking about stealth bumps that never materialize, or completely underwhelm when they do pop up. hopeless optimism i guess.

When BB (stealth) cancelled GCU, there *was* an official mention of GCU being replaced with something new... (internal memo leak i think?)

However, that was the only mention.

 

 

And BB only created GCU because they were pretty much failing as a business. They needed people in their stores, now that they are in recovery... they think they don't need GCU anymore.

Time will tell, But I will say that since they killed any renewal GCU options I have only purchased 3 games from BB. Used all of my points, and only look at game "deals" anymore there. I used to try and stockpile the points a bit.. now as soon as I have enough i'm looking to spend them.

Ordered Valkyria Revolution: Vanargand Edition on the XB1 and got the vanilla copy.  My local Best Buy only has the PS4 vanilla copy labeled as that particular edition on the shelf.
