Yeah, there doesn't seem to be too many gamers here in CT in the loop. Anyone here planning on getting a PS3? I've got a pre-order at Gamestop in Waterbury, so I'm all set.

Nope, not me. I was never an early adapter to the Playstation line, I always wait for a couple price drops before I get one. The only thing that I'm think I'm going to get is the Wii. I'm taking the trivial approach and just picking one up when I can just walk into a store and they are sitting there. With the demand so high (or thats what we're supposed to think) and a questionable supply, who knows when that will happen.

I'm from Bristol. The best I've been able to get deal-wise is from the Sears clearance items. CT doesn't usually have the best deals as I've found.

I do plan on getting the PS3 though, first on the list for the 60GB model and eighth on the list for the Wii at my local GameStop.

I'm from Danielson... it's in the Northeast in the middle of fairly nowhere, near Rhode Island and Mass... decent drive to some deals there, only about 1/2 an hour to Circuit City in Rhode Island...

On that note, best deals for me were Sears items as well, or just online deals... B&M is pretty scarce around here.

And about PS3's... a friend of mine ordered (according to him... I'll believe it when I see it, but he's pretty crazy... and money grubbing) 10 PS3's... he plans on selling enough to make a decent profit, either to people he knows or on eBay... and keeping one or two. Just thought I'd mention that if stock is scarce and he happens to feel generous enough to want to sell to a fine Cheapassgamer (again, this is if he actually ends up getting them... I'm weary to believe anything, but I just feel like mentioning it)... Anyway, yeah... I should tell him to join this site... He's the cheapest guy I know.

Trumbull, Ct checking in.

CT is a small state -- probably the right amount of people here for the size of the state.

I'd like to try and find a Wii but I have pretty much given up until Spring/Summer

Found out that they are opening a new Texas Roadhouse steakhouse nearby, in addition to all of the improvements near the milford mall. Moe's is pretty interesting; just opened this past week and I had never been to one before. Kind of like an upscale taco bell crossed with a subway. Unfortuantely, no $3 margaritas at this one (posted on a review of another branch of the franchise).

The company where I work is closing their site and kicking us out by the end of january, and I will need to leave the state to get another job.

I have not seen any wii's or ps3's anywhere when I was in target or best buy looking for memory sticks, but the games seem to be more readily available. A coworker said that he got a wii for his son at Toys R Us a couple of weeks ago without a preorder, but it is going to be a crapshoot for awhile.

Someone in one of my classes said that he got his wii at best buy in newington, and that they only had a line of like 14 people when the store opened, and they got 40 units :o

Quite believable since i got my ps3 preorder in new britain and was 6th in line 1 hour before open

Yeah, two years later and CT still sucks for video game deals. I have a hard enough time getting CC to honor their own deals. Best Buy in West Hartford is usually pretty good on their price match policy though.

the best CT deal right now is driving over the border to capitalize on Mass's tax free weekend.

The BOGO 360 points cards was not CT exclusive... that was a national deal. I can't comment on the Prey CE/Tomb Raider Legend deals since I don't follow 360 deals (yet! getting one soon).

Damn, all these CAG's from CT. No wonder I can never snag a deal. You guys all eat them up before I get to them. Hamden here. The North Haven CC guys were holding all the MP cards behind the counter so their employees could snag the deal after the store closed. They would not let me buy them saying I had to buy a system if I wanted to get a card deal. Manager was not much help either. Ah well, good thing i did not need the cards, but would have been nice.:bomb:

Just got home from Mass, worked at the Best Buy Holyoke Sat and Sun for tax free weekend, it was pretty wild.

FYE at the Meriden Mall has 30% off all new games and accessories. 10% off hardware. Wii products were excluded from the sale. I didn't see anything of interest however.

Not very close to Enfield, but the stores in Old Saybrook has a LOT of PS1 games left. Then one store in Waterford (at Cross Road) has some PS1/N64 stuff, and the EBX in the Crystal Mall, also in Waterford.

Nothing but crappy PS1 games in Old Saybrook. Not bad for 75% off but still. I got hot shots golf and the syphon filter games...
