There are so many unnecessary entries for pre orders, bundles, themes, non deals, etc that I can't even tell what is what.
I just glaze over that post and look for separate threads to be posted to neogaf or here.
Flash sales deserve their own threads or that psn thread needs to be cleaned up and have all the extra crap removed.

What are the "good" PS2 models?
I thought some were more desirable because they have a usb or a IR panel for remotes?
Does someone have a list? TIA
I have found the SCPH-30000 or 35000 models to be most reliable, quietest, and use the least heat.
But all fat models have imperfect drives and are subject to wear and DRE. Most of them need to at least have the rail for the laser re-greased.

Burn them on the survey. I had that happen once and lit the guy up, wrote a couple paragraphs about it, and got contacted about it. The employee got fired and deservedly so.
Yeah i think i got an employee fired for this too. I was really annoyed because I had to make a second trip to the store and when i walked in that same employee instantly knew why I was there.
He probably got other complaints about it so i don't feel too bad. He was probably cheating on those add on items and making the other employees look bad.

It's hard to explain. It's just a habit from being someone who prefers to use proper English.
Italicizing titles is not an english language rule, it is a rule of certain styles of writing. The Chicago Manual of Style requires it, but the AP handbook prohibits it.
Therefore since this is an informal message board with no style guides, taking the time to italicize every title is just a bit silly.
People do crazier things though so be my guest.

The biggest issue is that a manager or someone is needed for an override of the price from $60 to Amazon's $21.60 anyway. So if they have read the corporate memos they are alerted anyway.
Also 6 copies at once is excessive but I would have done it if I could.

this may have been asked already but will best buy price match this even though it shows as temporarily out of stock on Amazon? thanks in adavance!
It really depends if the person doing the PM is looking for a reason to deny you. It's only a $10 difference that you might be fine.
I was really hoping that BB would drop it to $20 today to use the GCU discount but i ordered a backordered PS4 version and a $15 Vita version just now. $15 is a good price for almost any vita non sports game.
