#14233605 SHENMUE 3 with STEELBOOK $29.99 BESTBUY Win Price

Posted by Chocoburger on 23 November 2019 - 04:49 PM

Even though I spent $400 on this game ($300 KS and $100 LRG), I'm happy to see it get a sale and hopefully it'll sell well enough to warrant a sequel. I don't want to wait another 18 years for part IV.  :bomb:

No matter what console you play on, we are all gamers. Cheap Ass Gamers.

I play on tons of different platforms, both retro and modern. The past few months I've powered on:

Genesis / Saturn / Dreamcast

NES / SNES / N64 / GCN / Wii / Wii U / Switch / 3DS

PS1 / PS2 / PS3 / PS4 / PSP / PS Vita / PS TV

XBX / X360

 

There's just one problem... I can't keep up! The backlog never decreases, only increases! There's simply not enough hours in the day, and not enough days in a single lifespan to play all the great games on all the great systems. We really are spoiled for choice.

In stock on Target.com https://www.target.c...le/-/A-78266560

Barely any store has it so order before it sells out.

Ah! Thank you! Why did I forget about Target? I'm even a Redcard member and got it for 5% off. I'll cancel the Best Buy order now. You saved me a long trip, thanks again. :wave:

Thanks, picked up the cables. I still haven't modded my SNES Classic yet (for shame lol!), but I'll be more motivated to do so with these controller extenders.




#14154377 PS Classic Console $29.99 (OOS)

Posted by Chocoburger on 13 April 2019 - 01:44 AM

I have a few already, but I wouldn't mind getting a few more at $60. Where did he find them? Target? You're right through. The PSTV is fantastic. I use mine almost daily.

Its not a Nation-wide retailer, its a place called 2nd and Charles, here is their locations webpage:

https://www.2ndandch....com/locations/

 

Why would anyone want these controllers? If anything, if someone's hacking it they'll probably end up buying different controllers that have sticks. It'd be the last thing I'd buy it for

Exactly my thoughts. Retro games work great on a controller with analog sticks, especially if I wanted to play PS1 / N64 / Saturn retro games, why would I want anything less than DualShock?

 

The argument that "nostalgia makes it okay to include the launch controller" was silly. Same goes for the Sega Genesis Classic, 3 button controller in the USA, and people trying to defend it because of some reverence for nostalgia. Straight up stupidity.




#14153877 PS Classic Console $29.99 (OOS)

Sad to see the PS TV flop so hard, when it is 100 times better than this useless piece of garbage. PS TV emulation is great, it plays games from 3 different platforms, and has a far superior controller (analog sticks!) that's wireless. Soft modded allows the system to reach its full potential, making it an excellent purchase. But now PS TV is rare and extremely expensive, and Sony offered this dreck instead. What a shame. All they had to do was remake PS TV and put it inside a classic PSone shell to capitalize off nostalgia.

 

My friend found 3 PS TVs (Lego bundle) brand new on sale two months ago, and bought them for me, $60 each. Hopefully I can flip it around on ebay for a nice profit.

 

As for Antonline, I purchased a brand new Switch off them from Ebay and it arrived in perfect condition.




#13967573 eBay 15% off everything 3/20

Posted by Chocoburger on 20 March 2018 - 07:13 PM

So what to buy for $333.33? lol

100% serious, I bought a Switch from Antonline + a Gold DualShock 3 controller and the total price was exactly $333!

 

 

Antonline has the switch 289.99 free shipping. Comes out to around 247 shipped.

Thank you for this! Gonna head back to Best Buy and return mine. What's odd is that Antonline sells Switch below MSRP before coupon, but sells New 3DS XL over MSRP before coupon. Why is the older system overpriced but the new hot selling console under priced?

 

For those of you buying a Switch, I would wait:

https://www.techrada...-be-out-of-date

I wanted to get one now before firmware 5.0 and chip redesign and homebrew is off the table (for a very long time at least). I always knew that the Switch would get hardware improvements every 2 or 3 years, and I was willing to wait 5-6 years to get one, but once homebrew became an issue, it was time to get it before it was too late.

 

I picked up a Gamecube HDMI adapter. Sure its expensive, but Ive been meaning to give it a whirl and I dont think its getting any cheaper.

 

also got a Pikachu N64 console because Ive always wanted a Pikachu N64 console. 

 

cheers OP!

I MetalJesusRocks said that his GCN HDMI adapter killed his console. I suggest not to buy the same type he did.

I got 20%, hadn't even looked at the email before reading this thread. Thanks for the heads up.

Same, this thread reminded me to check my e-mail, 20% off. Better than nothing. :P

Walmart has the 500 gb Forza Horizon 2 360 bundle for $129.99. I say go for it!

I would love to, but my family wants to spend Thanksgiving dinner together, and not shopping at stores. They don't care about deals, but rather pointless blabber with people that they can see any time of the year.

Its pretty ridiculous that a PS4 with Uncharted 4 is cheaper than a Wii U with Mario Kart 8.

 

Any deals on a PS TV, PSP-3000, or an Xbox 360 (outside of Walmart - I'm afraid of being trampled to death)?

Well I got my Black Friday WiiU deal! And by that I mean the Wal-Mart next to my friend's house marked down the Mario Maker and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle down to $150 each.

ARGH! Jealous, you got my main Black Friday wish deal. Good job, enjoy that Wii U.

Really surprised no Wii U discounts or mega bundles, I mean come on, this is the last year for the Wii U, its life support plug is about to be pulled, SELL THOSE SYSTEMS!

 

If I wanted to buy a new Xbox 360 console, is the Wal-Mart $130 deal any good? I don't see anyone else having a deal on it. Don't want buy used.

#13114716 Free $20 Best Buy Gift Card Via Android Pay (Nexus Devices Only)

Posted by Chocoburger on 22 December 2015 - 06:25 AM

Wait, chase visa cards don't work?  I haven't used it since it became android pay, but on the old google wallet my chase amazon card worked fine.  It even shows up in Pay.  Or am I just misunderstanding?  

Yeah it doesn't work, last I tried about 2 months ago. Maybe its been added? I can try right now let's see...

 

...

 

Tried again, does not work still.

Edit: I realized I may have been misleading with my first post so let me add a bit of info.

My Amazon VISA which is controlled by Chase bank doesn't work.

My Best Buy VISA (used to be Mastercard until recently switched to VISA) is also controlled by Chase bank doesn't work.

 

A different Chase VISA/Mastercard may work, but Amazon and Best Buy are a no-go. Sorry for any confusion and happy buying!




#12523105 $50 Sony Playstation Network Card (Email Delivery) - $40 at eBay

Posted by Chocoburger on 22 February 2015 - 03:16 PM

So has anyone been able to get more than 2 codes? I still keep getting B.S. error messages, and I have purchased 2 codes in the past, last November to be exact. I can understand adding a limit when it goes on sale such as 2 cards, but that limit should reset each time the cards go on sale again! It shouldn't be permanent (if that's what it is). Fuck Paypal. =;
