#13998376 Best Buy GCU is being Discontinued?

Posted by SacCityGamer on 22 May 2018 - 03:34 AM

just because they're not losing money now doesn't mean you should screw them. Just be happy they gave you deals in the past. I buy from whatever store is cheapest. I have no loyalty to one store over another, and I'm not going to hate a store just because they want to stop losses.

Who said I was doing it to screw them? The only reason I shopped there in the last few years was BECAUSE of GCU. Now that it's gone, I have no reason to even pay attention to Best Buy. I didn't buy much from them before GCU and I won't now. MAYBE I will at Black Friday or something, but otherwise, they never have good deals anyway. I'm not doing it to "screw them," though I am pissed at them for dropping this program, especially with no warning or replacement of any kind. When I said "screw them" I meant screw them for treating customers this way. They didn't even have the decency to send a letter or an email about it. They just quietly dropped it and only said anything because of the backlash. If this is how Best Buy wants to treat its customers, then as I said before, they can die a slow death. But I'm not "not" shopping there to hurt them. I'm not shopping there now because I no longer have a reason to. That's all. Besides, it's really none of your business how I shop or how I feel about companies. I respect your position on the matter, please do the same for me.

Welp, I won't be buying anything from Best Buy anymore, just like before GCU. Not even non-video game stuff. Screw them. This sucks. I've spent upwards of $2500 there in the last two years with GCU mostly on video games but I've given them business for computers, TVs, and other stuff too because I appreciated them so much for doing GCU. They can die a slow death now for all I'm concerned.

I use the Pro Controller exclusively and have never had any issues with the d-pad.

This is easily the most complete fighting game on the market - full story mode, arcade mode, and a trove of unlockables (video and art from every game in the franchise).  Also, you can unlock/customize character outfits - and each character comes with multiple outfits.


Oh, and this is all there on-disc.  I'm sure there's some DLC, but the game itself is loaded with content.

Uh, yeah. It has this: 

#13547042 PS4 20th Anniversary Controller $39 at Wal-Mart (YMMV)

Just created my account, didn't realize I wouldn't be able to spread the word. I think this deal *may* evaporate at midnight (end of Cyber Monday sales), so I wanted to get the word out quickly.

Walmart I believe has the PS4 20th Anniversary Edition DualShock Controller on sale for $39.00 in stores only (normally $65.00).

Stock seems to be extremely hard to find at this point, as most have already been sold. I only knew that my local store had one still because it was sitting by it's lonesome in the corner of the locked display. I bought it today after checking Brickseek, and it indeed rang up at $39.00.

46406408 is the SKU number.


Hope this helps some other nostalgic gamers!

You can get this by playing 10 games in the arcade with random folks. Sometimes you might have to wait a few minutes to get matched to a game, but it's usually not too bad. I finally got this trophy a couple of weeks ago.


I have tried many, many times and can never get games going. Well, not 'never', I did get one game, but haven't been able to get anymore.

Damn. I would have jumped on Lego Marvel's Avengers if it was that price on PS4. Oh well. Thanks anyway, Cheapy.

Some people actually care if they ship something and want it to get there in a decent stretch of time and that will cost you.


Wow this site is turning into a bunch of little defensive bitches


This coming from someone who is just bashing other people just to be an ass. Why not ignore what other people do and move on with your life instead of worrying about what other people are doing with their time and money?

I talked to them on Facebook and they are waiting to get the restock in still. They told me mid-to-late next week. I'm okay with that. I love that they are so quick to respond and that they have really nice customer service reps. I'd suggest everyone just waits it out.

Right on. Even at 50 cc I struggled for several races. Then this morning I tried using a pod racer and FORGET IT


The Pod Racers suck, which is disappointing to say the least. I had the most success using Lightning McQueen.

#12816788 Buy One Get One Free Any New Disney Infinity Figures @ GameStop

Posted by SacCityGamer on 20 July 2015 - 03:29 PM

Tough to say at this point. It is safe to say that 1.0 and 2.0 figures will be compatible with toybox mode in 3.0 just as it was last time around, but beyond that it isn't known if there will be any additional functionality or perks. 


Disney made a "sneak peek" announcement the other day and basically confirmed that they are bringing out an Ant-Man figure, but it isn't yet known if it will just be a figure alone or if he will get his own playset for 3.0. If he gets his own playset, then at least some of the other Avengers characters should be compatible with it. But again, it's hard to say at this point. 

DI 1.0 and 2.0 figures ARE compatible with 3.0 Toybox mode and the new Toybox expansions (the Takeover and Racing modes). As for Ant-Man having a playset, I highly doubt it. They already have 3, which is all they did for the second game. The first game had 6 playsets so it's possible, but I just don't see it happening with only 3 Marvel (including Ant-Man) characters in 3.0.

Would love to have Undertaker and Stone Cold. Still, at $150 each after the discount, that's a ton of money for me right now.
