A $400 price point will not move consoles.

Be careful with gohastings. When I've bought "new" games from them in the past they were already opened. I contacted them and they said "new" doesn't mean sealed because it could have been a display copy. Horrible store..
Gamestop says hi.

Best Buy cracked down a while ago. Used to be the best place to get guides for most of us. Monday drops where everyone on the east coast would post their finds. That is where 'grab dem shitz' and other epic posts came from. Fun times, no doubt.
Ah yes, that was me who first said "grab dem shitz". Brings back good memories. Back when the penny guides flowed like wine. A couple weeks back I found Link Between Worlds and Donkey Kong Country returns for a penny each at Layton Ut, Toys R Us. They actually sold them to me. First score I've had in several years. They had more if anyone wants to try their luck.

I've been a member of this site since 2002. The first rule of CAG is never talk about CAG. The second rule is never call ahead. I've been doing these types of sales since the great $5 Circuit City sale and the last thing to do is to alert store employees before they ring up your items.
As I said in my earlier post, buy a pre-owned Xbox 360 transfer cable from GameStop. Use it to do the transfer. Then, return it. GS gives a 7 day exchange for pre-owned items so you can take it back and get something else. The used cable is $17.99 without Pro Rewards, $16.19 with Pro Rewards. I did my transfer last night. Once your profile has been transferred, you have to do a license transfer which can be found on your account information on the dashboard. Then, you have to re-download all the content on your new system to use it. That includes apps like Internet Explorer.
That's amazing since Cheapy D started the site in April 2003........

If Gamefly wants to sell their copies they should have put them down to at least $8 if not lower.
Good point, it will actually be $7.99 for Best Buy gamer's club members for a brand new copy. That's getting into serious impulse buy territory.

Nintendo will not sell the Wii U without the gamepad period. They have already stated this. They are doubling down heavily on their upcoming NFC figures which require the gamepad to work. If anything they will slowly stop supporting the Wii U (after 2015) and move on to the next big project in 2016.

So I went to check Amazon for a warehouse deal on a PS4 this morning as I do every day. This time I saw a brand new PS4 for $250 plus $4 shipping from Australia. I looked up and down the page and couldn't find anything fishy about it but it seems too good to be true. Take a look http://www.amazon.co...4&condition=new

I just checked for you and neither Motorstorm or Motorstorm Pacific Rift seem to have optional installs. I haven't updated this thread in a while but I did wikify it so others could update as new install sizes are discovered. It became difficult to maintain because the downloadable patches get added in to the install and then you don't know how much of the file for each game is an install patch and how much is the game installed from the disc. As more patches come out the file sizes grew and some of the values posted might not be valid anymore.
