The Video Game Deals Thread

There's an Amazon one but with tons of deals around, I thought this would be a good thread.


Eternal Sonata XBOX 360 $12.89 shipped at gogamer.com


Guitar Hero World Tour Bundle XBOX 360 for $142.09+tax shipped at Blockbuster.com with coupon code holidaysurprise (I'd guess the PS3 version is priced similarly).

Blockbuster.com 30% off games and accessories holidaysurprise.

So I went in-store to pick up my copy of Tom Clancy's End War with bluetooth headset at Best Buy today ($49.99 as mentioned in PS3 thread, deal still available) and also grabbed the same set with wireless headset for the Xbox 360.

Is the wireless headset for Xbox any good (it is the official one)? I have a hard time hearing people at times on the wired one, hoping this is of better quality.

Figured I'd eBay/trade the games to bring the price down on the headsets, maybe keep it for the 360 though.

Damn.. I wish we had Fry's in Michigan. I'd have rather had them then Circuit City to compete with Best Buy.

Just came from FYE where they had all their original xbox games marked 75% off. Picked up 23 games for less than $70. It didn't seem like a local deal, as several bins around the store had preprinted 75% off signs posted on them.

One of the games I got, 50 Cent: Bulletproof actually has a current $5 off mail in rebate on it. I only paid $2.50 for it, so in the end they'll be paying me $2.50 to take it from them.

Games are in my trunk right now but I'll post a full list later. Until then here's what I can recall picking up:

50 Cent: Bulletproof
Voodoo Vince
Panzer Dragoon Orta
The Warriors
Fight Club
True Crime: New York City

I just returned from Target and picked up:

PS3 - OblIVion - $15
PSP - Test Drive Unlimited - $15
PSP - FIFA Soccer 08 - $10

They had other titles with similar discounts. YMMV.

Target deals are almost never worth mentioning because they are SO YMMV, even between stores in the same cities. But, they are useful to get a n idea as to what is new on clearance.

Was the Oblivion the GOTY or the original?

My Best Buy had 4 of the GOW2 RC Tanks for $9.99. I am sure this is a YMMV.

Serious YMMV, but Walmart has Head Coach 2009 for 10.00 (B&M). This retails for 29.99
