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 could not find a 20% off accessories code that works with these items.
20ACC is the most common code. Any other codes you can suggest? Thanks.

Both. Too bad I have all I need. I tried to convince myself that somehow I still needed a second Nav and/or Sharpshooter, but just can't do it.

Now of course one of my Move components will probably die in a couple of weeks and it'll serve me right.

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.
I'm going to assume yes, but so the deal reads to me then if I buy the game and the X-bol live gold I will still get the $20 gaming coupon as well as the $30 off the 12-month gold?

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Looks to be the best deal then on Gears if I am not mistaken, and unless someone is seriously stocked up on memberships you can't beat this deal. Off to Kmart on Tuesday for me.

Of course I like how the $20 card expires 3 days before COD:MW3 comes out, although can you use the card toward their layaway program? At the moment I'm still on the fence of getting both COD and BF3, as I figure that would be the only game I would use the credit towards otherwise.

Edit: Since it says "gaming" I assume this just video gaming in general. So for less than $100 after tax could have Gears 3, 1 year of Live, and snag a 1600 point card. Sweet

Any chance of Microsoft offering a Gears of War 360 bundle in the future? I'd be tempted to jump in if that were the case...

I'd guess that yes - there will be a 3 pack at some point in the future.

I picked up 2 move controllers, 2 pistol holders ($7.50 each), The Shoot, Heroes and star the party. I just need to get an eye and possibly the nav controller.

Grab a Nav. You'll have a hard time playing Heroes without it.

If they have a Sharpshooter, you should grab one of those too. Using the Sharpshooter beats the pants off of the silly pistol thing.

Except a 1600 point card costs 19.99, and to use the coupon, you have to spend the full 20.

I've had the cashier override the penny before.

Worse case scenario you can use the $20 off the 4000 point card.

In my book, unless you.really need a new LIVE card, you're better off with Amazon, since that is no tax (in most states) a $20 credit you can apply to anything, free shipping -- release date with Prime, an exclusive MP skin that will have some inexplicable value on eBay, and you get to avoids two trips to Kmart.

Looks like there are a couple Gears 3 Limited Editions in the Amazon Warehouse for $47.99. I just picked up one. The item description says “mark on case”. Only 9 left!

EDIT : SOLD OUT

If for some reason you still haven't played Portal, it's free again on steam for a couple days.

Cool. I never played Portal so I guess I'll give it a shot since it's free. Thanks for the heads up.

250G Xbox 360's slims are 100 bucks off this weekend here at Walmart, Best Buy and Future Shop. Picked one up this morning since my old 20G model was acting up and was always a pain in the ass deleting stuff to make room for new shit. I had planned on getting the Gears 3 console bundle but $399 vs $199 made this decision easy

Sounds like they might have been damaged in shipping or possibly cut in the warehouse while unpacking.

Amazon has a $40 credit if you order the GOW 360 console going on right now. If I didn't get the LE through the warehouse deal, I'd be all over this.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Would either of these 2 scenarios be possible. Does KMart do pricematching to ads, wondering since I see Target has the 1-year card on sale right now for $49.99(or since they are taking off $30 if you get GOW3 that would override any attempt at a pricematch if they do)?

And in regards to Target, I know I have been pretty succesful with pricematches. But how are they with "deals". I'm referring to the Kmart deal going on. Would they take the $30 off the 1 year card and also give you a $20 giift card with purchase of GOW3. I've never tried "deals" but just pricematches.
