Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Damn, I really wanted A Boy and his Blob. I've found that if you wait for just a few months Wii games are easy to get for $20 or below. That's especially true for the actual good Wii games (Boom Blox, da Blob, Okami, Geometry Wars) since most people instead opt to buy crap for $14 at Kohl's.

Bummer that I missed that as it was on my list. Hopefully it'll drop down again...then maybe I can complete my collection of killer 2-d revival nintendo games.

Thanks for letting me know.

Not sure if it's still going on but you can (could?) get Excitebots for $5 at BestBuy with a Gamer Reward Zone $10 coupon.

Yep they had Reward Zone coupons that would net you Riddick ($20 off current price of $29.99) for $9.99 (for 360 & PS3 I believe) and Pikmin (Wii $10 off current price $14.99)for $4.99. Picked them up the other night.

Wolverine is included in that $20 coupon deal as well. I've got a $5 gift card which would make it $15. I might have to pick it up for that price.

Its been $15 or better at various Targets when they've had them on clearance for quite some time.

I got a free copy of Transformers for 360 with the last set of Reward Zone coupons but that was pretty YMMV as the game was on sale for $19.99 and they had a $20 off coupon. The coupons state only good on regular non sale prices though so it had to be overridden by the cashier/manager to get it to work. In my case, it did. Many others didn't.

There's a big thread on this over at CAG.

In December similar deal, netted GH:Smash Hits for $10.

Well I picked up Wolverine today. I was going to get Riddick as well but it was sold out (360 and PS3 versions).

Amazon lighning deal - Xbox 360 Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City for $20, almost gone.

And even though I never really liked the GTA games, I'm tempted for some reason.

Crap, missed out on the GTAIV deal. Oh well, I'm sure there will be a price drop on it soon since it's selling like shit.

I already had the L&D DLC but went ahead and snagged the disc anyway. Gay Tony has been on my want list and I figured it will be easier to sell the disc to Gamestop when I'm done than to sell the DLC back to Microsoft.

Thanks for the heads up on these deals....I printed off both coupons this morning and snagged both Riddick (PS3) and Pikimin (Wii) for $15 total...since Riddick has both the new game AND the original on it (which I have never played), it's like getting three whole games for only $5 apiece!

Exactly my thinking. Picked up both yesterday. Can't beat that.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Not that I'm complaining, but what's with the $15-$20 price drops within 1-2 weeks of a game's release?

Not that long ago it would be months before we saw a discount at all.

I've noticed a kind of pattern that if a title doesn't sell well it immediately drops $20 bucks or so. I'm guessing Darksiders didn't meet sales expectations and they need to try and move some inventory.

This has been going on for a while, hasn't it? It picks up especially near Xmas, but it seems like sales happen really quickly (check Tekken 6, for example). I don't think I'll ever buy an Ubisoft game at launch ever again.

It's a good point, but I don't know if I can wait on Splinter Cell when that game finally sees the light of day.
