Is there anywhere to get a deal on this? I don't want to have to wait too long after the release date to start playing it. I was going to order through amazon but now they aren't giving free shipping on video games anymore. I'm really hoping to save a few dollars, can anyone help?

I go to http://www.videogamesavings.com to find all the deals. BTW, I just read that Sony pushed the game back to June. That's too far away.

Say it isn't so! I was so looking forward to mid March to get it. I see amazon has it listed as May 4th now. I'll have to find something else to do now. By the time it gets released I'll have enough sprite money to buy it for sure. Thanks for the link, looks pretty good.

I played the GT3 demo at TRU the other day when I went to grab SW Starfighter ... can't wait. Although Zone of Enders will have the MGS2 demo to tide me over.

I was referring to rocketcash. It's been an ongoing promotion for quite a few months now and they are getting harder to find. You have to buy sprite in the six pack bottles, they'll have a black stripe on the label and under each cap you'll see a code. It's a good deal if you can find them since you get a 5 dollar bonus after 15 codes.

If you're looking for speed, you can't beat EBWorld.com. If you're looking for price, it will of course take a bit longer as to time it with other deals not to mention they don't have the shipping deals that EBworld.com has. EB's shipping is a flat rate for no matter how many items you order. Plus they don't charge tax for even CA residents which is a big plus. They usually ship the day they ship it to their stores so it's possible to even get it before your local store gets it. I've received games at around 9:30 and the mall doesn't open till 10.
