#14333166 Xbox Series S/X Re-stock Thread

Wow, snagged one at Costco.  Not happy with having to buy a second controller but at least I have a backup in case another pre-order run happens.

Any links to the Corsair GTX 3080 gaming pc that Cheapy mentioned he bought?

Hey, friends. If you upgraded from the Elite controller to 2.0, is it worth the leap? I'm thinking of burning the rest of my discounted credit on one for the new console.

I bought one and loved it.  As soon as the criminally short warranty period (90days?!?!) passed it had serious drift issues in the left thumbstick.

Microsoft wouldn't do a damn thing except have me send it in for a refurb for another $100.

Lucky for me, I was able to return it via Google Shopping.

So, I know that Microsoft did not learn a thing from the first Elite and used the same cheap modules.

They won't support an obvious defect that they are responsible for.

So, I wouldn't purchase a premium accessory from them unless it was a deal and if you do, get the extended warranty.

I heard the latest batches of Elite v2 were silently fixed so it may not be an issue but fool me once.

Can't wait for another week of...


AAA hyped title that every gamer is talking about is released!!!


CAGCast gang - "No interest", "Is that this week?", "Those games do nothing for me"


But another hour of Fortnite skin talk and some Indy games no one has ever heard of or will play.


I'll be shocked if Ghosts is even mentioned.


I love the CAGCast but this is your "industry".  At least have an opinion on it.  You could always quantify paying for it by all the other codes you get for free.

Wow, it goes to show how amazing the $249 Gamestop deal was.  It was an awful experience and I hate Gamestop but the price was too good to pass up.

My snarky review...


CheapyD doesn't play videogames anymore.

Wombat discussed Outer Worlds again, repeating things from last week (which I don't have a problem with, all VG discussion is good).


Shipwreck?  He can't even finish saying the game he is playing and enjoying.


Borderlaaaa....  <Boo! Boo! Next topic, we don't care> - Cheapy and Wombat.


Let the man talk, some of us like Borderlands 3 and would love to hear how he is progressing, what level he is on, how is the co-op, upcoming DLC, etc.

#14200870 ►Best Buy Deals: Select Games w/$10 in Rewards & Other BB Deals!

Posted by Zimmy on 20 August 2019 - 02:02 PM

Wish it worked on digital.  Didn't $ GCU work on some games?  I might have to do this on a physical copy too then.

GCU never worked on digital (if that was what you were asking).  The $10 reward works on digital though.

The $20 discount it too much to pass up, plus I will be playing so much of it that the disc will live in my Xbox anyway.  I'll trade it in and pick up the digital version later on the cheap.

Wow, I swore off of physical copies but to get Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition for $80 (GCU) and $10 Rewards?  What an awesome deal.

I'm going to miss ya, GCU.

Was Sony even mentioned this week?

Didn't "Days Gone"  get released this week?

I get they wouldn't have a chance to play it, but it's a pretty big release not to mention.

Just curious.

Maybe I missed it.

#14150348 Resident Evil 2 $39.99/$31.99 GCU Bestbuy.com PS4, Xbone

Posted by Zimmy on 02 April 2019 - 01:19 PM

It's $40 tho :P

For me, with GCU, I'm only off $2.


Of course I'm joking around but my point was, Resident Evil games have been some of the worst offenders in big price drops.

It's like you are paying a $20 fee to play the game early.

I can think of a few <cough>Ubisoft<cough> others also.

Ah yes, that Darksider PC game celebrated its 2nd anniversary at my Target.

We all agree that buying any Resident Evil game at $60 means you should have your head examined?  Right??

I'm pretty sure Best Buy already has the $30 stickers printed after the sheep take the bait.

#14107358 Target Just Cause 4(PS4) $29.99 YMMV

Posted by Zimmy on 20 December 2018 - 07:56 PM

I am OP. I took the pic myself at the Target, drove over to Best Buy to try it out and it worked so I posted proof with receipt

Wait, so you knew it was bullshit when you posted here?

Why didn't you just try buying it at Target when it was right in front of you?

Or at least change the title to "Target puts Just Cause in wrong row, here is a pic to try to defraud retail price matching policies".



Glad you got it at that price, I never had Best Buy just give me the price from a picture, they would always check online.
