Thanks for the heads up. I've been meaning to get Journey since it came out, but never pulled the trigger. Now I've got three games for the price of one.

Really??? I mean it's artsy and elegant, but there really isn't much game there actually. I'm a huge fan of PSN in general but think this game is massively overrated -- and that's before anyone threw terms like GOTY around either. It's worth picking up in the disc form for $15, sure, but it's short and if there's true greatness there, it eluded me.

I'd snagged most of the games I'd wanted in earlier deals before the Black Friday shenanigans but still ended up with:

NBA2K13 $25
XCom $25
Mortal Kombat Vita $15
Dance Central 3 $15
Grand Slam Tennis 2 $8

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Check out what happened with this order at Toys r us.com a few minutes ago


Halo 4 -- 59.99 with 50% off another game
I chose Dishonored to be that game -- that brought Dishonored down to 29.99 from 59.99


now, here is the tricky part. Dishonored has a "Buy 1 get 1 for $1.00" promotion going on with certain eligible items. Sleeping Dogs is one of those eligible items so i added it into the cart as well. I was certain that promotion wouldn't work since I was discounting Dishonored to $29.99 with the other promotion. Low and behold it only charged me $1 for Sleeping Dogs.


Halo 4 -- 59.99
Dishonored -- 29.99
Sleeping Dogs -- 1.00

not too shabby

I went overboard and ordered 19 games from Microsoft. I now need to find a new media shelf...

Too bad it doesn't seem to work with black ops 2. I actually need that game for a x-mas gift.

Edit: Nevermind it worked! Not sure I really need another 2 games though. Only about $2.50 less than black friday prices for dishonored / sleeping dogs.

Are there any good deals at the moment for Skyrim V on PS3? It's a gift for someone and I haven't been following its price history.

First you use Halo 4 and add dishonored and sleeping dogs. I forgot the next step. I either deleted Halo 4 and added Black Ops 2 or I added blacks op 2 then deleted Halo 4.

$29.99 at newegg. Unfortunately, you missed the $24.99 BF sales.

For what console? I say yes because it has Doom and Doom 2, but that's me.

360.

Thanks! I totally missed the part in the description where it mentioned having the first two Dooms. Even if they are poor ports the completest in me wants this a lot now. Purchased. Thanks again Rich.

No Problem! That's actually what sold me as well They are very good ports that feature online and same console co-op (Doom 3 only has competitive modes).

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Being a former PC FPSer, I was tempted by the Doom deal but decided I have too much of a backlog. The only non-kid VG deals I got were COD:MW2 ($10) and COD:WOW ($7.99), which should tell you something about how much I play.

The money I saved will go to another Criterion.

The lightning deal was only a dollar off the price they're currently selling it for.

I don't see that. It might be a user-specific offer. Where do you see that?

It was on one of the panels on the dashboard. Had a big photo of a purple Xbox controller.

I received all but two of my titles from Amazon today. I'm kinda shocked they took all my orders and combined them in one box!
