#13028563 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVI

Thanks for rubbing it in.



Also $35 new at the moment apparently.




Yeah, it's been at that price for a week or two now, but I told myself I wouldn't pull the trigger until it was sub-$30.


Now if only I could somehow find the superior Brotherhood for that price...

It's not a game (try not to murder me), but this looked like a good deal and there's at least 3 left:

They don't even have the dignity to offer a controller at that price.



Amazon sellers who incorrectly use the item grading system is a huge pet peeve of mine.

Coincidentally enough, I was out grabbing a free rental of Halo 5 from a Redbox when that went live. Would've made an amazing Christmas gift, but I hope someone who's going to play the console got them.


I'm actually not a fan of white consoles, myself. Anyone else with me?

#13026769 Fire Emblem Fates - Special Edition $79.99 ($63.99 GCU) OOS BB/Amazon/Gamestop

Posted by thievery on 13 November 2015 - 07:50 AM

And this is why these "MSRP deal" threads are useful. I'm not surprised to see it gone so quickly, and I really have to thank my younger brother for watching the Direct live and telling me that they were talking about Fire Emblem, because I otherwise wouldn't have bothered looking around for more info and seeing that they finally announced a release date for it, leading me to look for alerts on preorders going up.

I just hope my order goes through without a hitch; I remember Awakening's botched release where I had to drive 30 minutes to the only nearby Best Buy that had it in stock on release day because my preorder at Gamestop was delayed (along with everyone else's). I've been a diehard Fire Emblem fan since Blazing Sword's release over here, to the point where I've imported Awakening's artbook and the Lucina Figma. I'd love to have the soundtrack, too, but the prices on it have been ridiculous for almost two years now (think $100+). 

Anyway, enough rambling. Thanks again for posting about this.

This thread will be back to its regularly scheduled programming when people decide to take a break from Fallout 4.

According to my save file, I've played over 22 hours. It's been only 40 hours (in real life) since I first started playing. No end in sight, either.

Posted by thievery on 07 October 2015 - 02:48 AM


I've heard others say that there's trouble with the preorder DLC, but I'm hoping there'll be a fix for it out soon. I'm a little afraid to redeem mine right now because of it, even though I'm sure it won't matter if I do it now or after the fix.


I've only played the game a little bit in quickplay so far, but it didn't really hit me with how weak the setlist was until then. They couldn't even use the original version of Someone Like You and used the crappier re-record from 2011, when the singer was older and couldn't sing in the proper, higher key any more. Maybe all of the songs will grow on me as time goes on, but they'll probably be forgotten and never played again as soon as I take the plunge and download all of my old DLC.

I know it sounds bad, but I'm a little disappointed with RB4 so far. Hoping that'll change as I play it more.

I don't think I've seen much discussion about the game itself yet - have any of you played it enough to have an opinion on it yet? I'm still waiting for UPS to deliver it. They often don't get here until 7-8PM nowadays, which makes me think I should've just preordered it at Best Buy for in-store pickup.

Posted by thievery on 23 September 2015 - 04:26 PM

Just to clarify: this is for people who plan on buying the digital version on XB1 - i.e. there is no game-only XB1 option available to buy at retail, only the game/adapter bundle, correct?

I'm weighing this vs. just buying the game/adapter bundle at Best Buy for $63 after GCU

As far as I know, the instrument bundles don't come with an adapter, either, which is why I ordered one, myself. I still have a few old 360 guitars that I can probably still squeak some use out of.

Just a heads up for those who want the controller adapter for X1: Amazon has it for $9.99 when you use the promo code RB4ADAPTER.

I'd be all over this if they brought over the black N3DS. Not a huge fan of white handhelds. I'm racist.


#12802102 amiibo Deals and Discussion Thread

Posted by thievery on 14 July 2015 - 07:48 PM

Also, we have a lot more stock than we've had of any other amiibo yet. I know we'll end up selling out, but I think it'll be closer to the Splatoon 3-pack or Charizard or something rather than Lucina/Robin in terms of how long they're available (~15 mins after available).

Heh, 15 minutes. More like 15 seconds. I remember having trouble with Lucina's page loading properly and by the time I did a refresh, she was gone.

Some links to the bundles, as well as the standalone game, are below. Note that the Band-in-a-Box bundle has an MSRP of $249.99, whereas the Guitar Bundle has one of $129.99. The X1 standalone comes with a legacy adapter for your 360 guitars and drumsets, but costs $79.99; the PS4 can use PS3 instruments out of the gate and is only $59.99. You can also buy a legacy adapter separately, with the MSRP for that being $24.99.



Best Buy - Don't forget GCU for 20% off!*


Mad Catz Store

Xbox.com (Digital)


* If you buy GCU online, you'll have to take it to a local store to activate it. However, you'll still get 20% off of the bundle during checkout.  If you're buying at least the guitar bundle, you're basically getting GCU for free ($30).


The Triple Cymbal Expansion Kit is also available for preorder on Mad Catz's website for $49.99, with a release date of "Holiday 2015" (big thanks to BonedChaos for the information).


Most of the past DLC from the previous games will be compatible with this one (and is the main reason I bought an X1), but at least 150 songs will not be compatible. Furthermore, a list of exactly which legacy instruments are compatible with Rock Band 4 can be found here.

I did see that on the headlines;


"Our Flash Sale Today is Out of Control! Literally! We are selling sweet deals on Gaming Consoles (without the controllers) today only with Free Shipping! Deals are rotating while supplies last."


As you said though, further down they note to include whats in the box. The receipt/order confirmation they sent me also says;


Included: Playstation 4 Console (glacier White), Dualshock 4 Wireless Controller (glacier White), Power Cable


Do you think they will stiff me those things? I'd be kinda pissed, but I have grounds to argue with them if they don't send me a controller too right? 

Yeah, I'm betting that if there's a problem, they'll just have you return it to them for a refund. They already let you return it for free, no questions asked, for two weeks, unless they changed it again recently (a while back it used to be 30 days).



What state are you in that they charged tax? Mine shows as $269 on the final screen before submitting payment as well.

I live in Indiana, which I don't think has anything of theirs in it, but I'm not sure. Either way, it wasn't charging me tax when I paid, so I'm slightly perturbed by it getting tacked on after the fact.
