#13453920 [USA] PS+ 12 months and XBL 12 months gold $49.49~$54.49

Every now and then we will do a random verification on an order. Also, if an international customer orders and puts in a North American address it flags in our system. Another flag would be if an invalid/incorrect phone number is entered.

I finally got a message from them, but it's not a code. It's them asking me to call a number and confirm that I want the code or it will be cancelled. Is this normal? I haven't read anywhere on this thread of this happening.

Sounds like they do occasional verification on their end. Guessing it's to prevent bots from taking advantage of the offer and verifying you're human. I wouldn't be worried about it =P

#13073202 PSN Plus 12 months for $37.45, email delivery

Just got a PS4 and it's arriving this week, but my question is will the code ever expire? I've only gotten a few games and I'm not sure I'll want to play them online right away, but I'm pretty sure I'll want to take advantage of some Plus member discounts or free games relatively quickly. Can I get this and hang onto it until that time comes?

15% discount

save 15% with code CYBER15 today only

15% for another registry thing probably? Those are just..ugh, don't even know any more.

cyber15 doesn't work for ps4 or x1 consoles, you would to have either chatted up a CS rep or found someone in store to disregard the fine print and honor it.

Im sure most know by now but I found someone talking about displaying amiibo on reddit and they mentioned baseball bat displays which I found to be perfect. I found these at Michaels for 29.99 each which was half of what they normally cost.


 Is there some sort of optical illusion going on here? I looks like the desk is at a different angle from the wall...

Also what's the easiest way to mount these? Been contemplating giving these a shot. Nails? Adhesive? Thanks in advance!

Can't believe I got a bowser jr on ebay last night for $19.85 with it being a toys r us exclusive & one of the coolest amiibos yet imo. Seems they are trying to rectify the problem but it will be a continuing battle with the store exclusives, scalper awareness factor, etc...

I almost didn't pick him up, but ever since he made his appearance on Party and subequent "New" Mario's he's really become quite memorable. I agree he is a pretty cool Amiibo I'm glad to have picked up. Even his neckerchief looks rather well done.

I mean even though they seem to be easier to get this way, I wouldn't ever hope that each new Amiibo release would be a store exclusive. That's just WAY too much running around and separate shipping charges. Maybe just for the ones that will obviously be popular (i.e. not rare).

Wow, you actually saying the light gun sucked, dude, any credibility you might have had left was just zapped!

No you're misunderstanding me xD If you haven't seen it watch this, you'll get a kick out of it:


Should see if I can find what happened to some of these we used to have. Nintendo's not new to 'nickel and diming' us for things we really don't have to buy guys =P

...the modern color one can go straight to hell right along with the dumb voice added to modern mario. I prefer Mario to be the strong silent type.

Are you ragging on Charles Martinet?! That man is a pure ball of happiness and extremely passionate about what he does, come on now! He brings joy to millions ^^

Dead Space 3 is the closest thing to an HP Lovecraft game we will ever get. The influence is clearly there. The last half of the game is just mind-meltingly awesome if you understand where the devs were going with the story. And the ending to the DLC....wow.

Well, I wouldn't go that far. I mean it IS a fantastic series that I love, but if we're talking games in general I'd say Arkham Horror takes the cake. And if that's too much of an investment, the abridged version (Elder Sign) is fantastic.

Never looked into that Call of Cthulhu 360 game though..


I'll have to check out that DLC sometime, didn't even know about it.

ZombiU was an interesting proof of concept, and with a LOT more work could've been a great game, but as it stands now it's utter shit.

As a lover of zombie & horror games think I'll get my $7 worth  8-[


 It's sooooo blatantly obvious the game was pushed out well before it was ready solely to have it available at launch, and assuming you can even finish the game it does bring down the experience drastically.

I think half of the fun will be seeing if I can finish it then xD I've played a number of early access games and know that feeling, but the best part of this will be going into it with lower expectations than those that praise it.

Looks like they were running out of Zombie U finally. That game's been out for, what, 3 years? Initially I thought from the title it was some pun on a University or something xD I'll take it for $7 ^^ Had to have it shipped though >.< Looks fun!


I tell ya waiting for games to drop 90% in price is the way to go instead of buying them new, we've got so much in our backlog to play anyways, just be patient, find something else, and wait for a sale!

and yeah i read stories of people driving to a store everyday hoping for a restock, ain't nobody have time for that

I certainly don't, and I feel like those that do end up going to every store and picking up the max limit. Then they turn around and bash those who check the same stores and can't find any by saying, "I don't see what your problem is, these are everywhere I got like 4. It's so easy."  [-( Like really, how do you not see what's happening here? xD
