Then almost bought it at Best Buy when it was supposedly $49.99 (+tax), but missed the sale as well. So this price is okay for me.
Price of Helghast Edition went down by another $1.05 today. $41.03. So I checked on my order yesterday, and status is still 'shipping soon. Had an online chat with Amazon and requested that I get the credit on my account since item has yet to ship. I was told that the order was already processed and credit could no longer be assigned to the order. Instead, they'll give me a $3 promo credit for a future purchase at amazon.

Great deal as I buy lots of stuff at Amazon. So it works out to a purchase price of $39.08 after the credit, which is even better than the lightning deal! Just one more reason why Amazon is one of the best places to buy on-line!

Found a copy of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Limited Edition on the 360 brand new for $30 at BestBuy. I guess they are clearing them out. What's funnier, the regular copy was still going for $50. Hrmmm, which one to get

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

I don't know if this was mentioned earlier in this thread, but I took 5 games to Best Buy to trade in and if you use it to pre-order Gears of War 3, you will get 50% more cash and anything else 40% more and it will be added onto a Best Buy Gift Card.

I took 5 games in tonight and got $25 and then pre-ordered NBA 2K12 and they game me $10 more for $35 total on my gift card. Pre-orders require only $5 down + tax and that will be taken off the gift card. So it's actually getting free money minus the deposit.

So right now I have $29 and change on my gift card....I could technically use it for something else if I wanted to, but I'm using the remaining balance towards the game.

Just got an email from Best Buy stating that my Child of Eden is ready for pickup today! Looks like they got these in sooner than expected.

Just so you know, the included super voucher is officially expired as of 8/31/11. I had hoped it might still be valid, but just tried and no such luck.

Expiring PSN codes suck. I hate that they pull that shit. XBOX doesn't.

Unfortunately, Xbox is not immune to this stupidity either. Just ask Electronic Arts. Plenty of their game codes expire.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Just a heads up for anyone interested in move. Gamestop is selling all the move controllers and accessories (except the eye) for 50% off. Also, most of the move only games are $10 including singstar dance (w/ 2 mics). Good online and in store.

Edit to add: There is also a 20% off accessories code floating around that works w/ the sale price, so

move controler $20 +tax and shipping
Nav controler $12
Sharpshooter $16
charging doc $12

I've had a lot of PSN codes not expire on me, but this is one of two that did that I really wanted (the other being the Ratchet and Clank costumes for Modnation Racers.)

Yeah, I had that one expire on me as well. And a GT5 car also.
BTW : didn't you also have a PSPGo multi-game code either expire on you or did you swing a trade for it at the last minute?

Never had any Xbox Live code expire on me, except one promotional point code I didn't realize was promotional. Even when they show an expiration date (like on Live 12 month cards), they really don't in my experience.

Yeah, I ended up using it. Which was a bummer because 1 of the games I didn't want, 1 I already had, and the last one I did want. I had been trying to get someone to get me a code for the one I wanted (Ratchet & Clank) in exchange for all three games, but I wasn't able to do it. So I just redeemed it.

I wish Newegg would do Collector's Editions for sale. I also wish they weren't coupon based so that Amazon could pricematch, but I understand that's the exact reason why they don't!

So is Amazon not doing any preorder promotions for MW3 or BF3? I want to make sure before ordering BF3 from Newegg.

Remember, you can easily cancel before they ship. I just went and preordered all of them (except Dance Central 2 which I already had preordered from them). I'll just cancel if I find a better deal at Kmart or somewhere else.

Today, there's also a limited time deal to get Forza 4 for $15 off, $44.99 shipped.

A few days later. It's UPS 3-Day Guaranteed Shipping, so you should get Tuesday releases by Friday at the latest.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

K Mart dropped the bomb on their Gears bonus offer:

Buy any version of Gears of War 3, get a $20 gaming coupon. Coupon valid from September 25 to November 5.

Buy any version of Gears of War 3 and a 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription card, get $30 off the price of the 12-month Gold card.

Both deals for Gears of War 3 will work with Limited and Epic Editions.

I thought it was a great deal since I’ve been waiting for someone to offer something with the limited edition version.
