Lol every time I buy a new game I have buyers remorse until I actually pop the game in and play it. I currently have over 200 games (no joke no lie) in my backlog right now too steaming from Dreamcast to PS4. I was under the impression from what I read on here from other members that you can only use the GCU and receive the pre-order credit if you buy at the brick and mortar store. That is why I asked my initial question in this very thread of the other perks associated with this membership. Now if anyone can provide a link or point me in the right direction that states this 20% GCU discount can be applied to Bestbuy.com as well that would be most helpful. Thanks to Cochese for supplying the link with the $10 online pre-order credit so now I am aware of that fact. But if anyone could provide something stating that this GCU could be used online too then I would join GCU on the 25th as well. As that would be a great deal to have the free shipping with the 20% discount and $10-$20 pre-order credits linked to Best Buy's GCU membership even if you have to pay tax. If you can do this online and have it shipped for free then I am all over this then.
You get 20% off games online. Just login with your ID and it shows the discounted price.

You would have to get a new hard drive. Also, the E model doesn't use the same A/V port as the last models did. It has an HDMI port, and then a separate port that looks like a 3.5mm port that the standard composite cables plug in to. I don't think they have released component cables that are compatible with the E model. So it's either HDMI or composite.
You don't need a new hard drive. Just buy the generic case for the new Xbox and remove your old drive from the Microsoft Case and put it in the new case. I think the case was $6.

Let's hope they have a plan to allow users or stores to provide the download codes to them.
Also for the rest of us this may mean being able to ebay a titanfall code for cheap.

On a somewhat related note... I scored a 250 gb xbox 360 E console for $74 dollars shipped off best buy's auction site. Crazy.
What is the best buy auction website? I didn't know they had their own auction website. I found one on dtdeals.com but I'm not sure if it's legit.

Is anyone else disappointed with this gen so far as I am? I don't recall it being like this for Xbox, PS2, and PS3...
This is how every new console launches. I would say this gen is better than previous. The PS4 has free games with PS+. I don't recall any console that allows me to have 3 free games to play. It looks like there are some really good games coming in February and March so I think it's going well.
On Xbox 360 I remember only playing COD2 for a long time because of a lack of other interesting titles. On Gamecube I remember playing Star Wars Rogue leader.
Playing AC4 on the PS4 is a great experience. (only PS4 game I've bought so far) (I guess being cheap I expect to wait for more deals.)
