They do not. The prices listed for those sets are for everybody.

I threw in a divider to help distinguish that RZ section.

Thanks for all you do, I've been a long time fan of your work!!
Does anyone else feel that adding the PC games that are going on sale would be helpful????

Please let me know..

Thanks for the early prices. Looks like Mind of Mencia and South Park for me.

I wonder how they decide the Reward Zone Member deals. It seems we'll go 3 or 4 weeks without them, then one week with a few, then another month or so without.
I remember his jokes were more like a personal commentary.

Mine are geared toward making people think: "Is that a REAL title or not?"

My favorite: Weezie: The Wrath of Louise Jefferson....

As far as RZ specials, I suspect that they analyze their current period sales to the same period last year and if they see a slow period coming, they throw in a sale for RZ members.

At least, that's how we used to do it when I worked for McDonalds. (Would you like an apple pie with your order? They're 2 for a buck this week.)

Also the jokes the guy at CAG put in were a little vulgar. Speedy, on the other hand, tends to keep his jokes on the clever side.

That price is confirmed Max B.

Ad makes it loook real good eh?

Especially when you can buy the first 5 seasons at Target that week for $19.99 each. Of course, you can get BB to pricematch as well.

Awesome, thanks a ton!

Is there any way I can get the prices for CC and Target too? Mostly just looking for a sale on Oblivion, regular or CE for PC.

All you need do is ask or send me an e-mail. I'm still not sure that those who frequent this forum are particulary interested in PC games on a weekly basis. But I am contactable and willing to help.

Circuit City lists The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion as a Low Price title available 3/23/06 for what I see as $39.99 with the Collector's Edition going for $59.99

Target does not list this title in their ad at all.

Hope this helps.

Nice deal then Gutz.

Only two have stated whether inclusion of PC titles on a weekly basis would help them. YOU, being one of them.

thanks for the early prices, Speedy. I think I might bite on PGR3 for xbox 360. $39.99 - $5 Gamer's gift coupon = a pretty sweet deal.

I think I'll just wait until the DDD sale for Justice League and Batman Beyond, and save about $10.

Agree... i don't need them right away, so DDD's 20% sale sounds pretty good, perhaps there's a better price some times in between

Definitely well worth it. But just to be sure, does anyone know of it being advertised less anywhere else? I know it's 18.96 on Amazon right now, but for that extra buck I'd pick it up on release.

Does anyone know specifically what will be on that Motherload disc, free with South Park or Mind of Mencia? I know it says 45 minutes of Comedy Central online content, but 45 minutes of what?

It might be comedy standup shorts that Comedy Central used to show in between shows as filler. Guess we'll all see when someone gets one.

Thank you for your hard work as always, speedy1961. I would also like to request a weekly listing of PC games. I would find them most helpful.

Each week, I eagerly anticipate previewing the listings of media software. Whenever I get the physical ads in my hands (never early, unfortunately), I always first check the DVDs, CDs, console video games, and PC games (in that order). Usually the PC software section of the weekly ads are pretty slim, so hopefully, they wouldnít add too much of a burden to your already busy workload.

Your help is always tremendously appreciated. I just donít typically log in every week to offer a word of thanks without adding any actual content. Please help out the PC gamers on our forum and keep in mind all the silent, yet grateful, members each week.

I was just about to ask if they still did some kind of RZ discount. Glad to see it's still around.

Yours has been the best argument by far for my adding them.

Thank you for the kind words and check back later today / tonight when I debut the latest BB price listing with price comparision links to Target and Circuit City and also PC games.

i picked up South Park S7 this morning, but didn't see the Motherload disc anywhere. no sticker on the set, and i haven't ripped it open yet. was this available separately, or is the bonus disc quietly packed in the sets?
