anyone ever pre-order a game from costco? They always have games a few dollars cheaper.

What's your experience with Costco, and games being shipped on release day?

Xbox name- D0NGINAT0R (those are zero's in my name)

Some of the big titles are available the day of release, but I wouldn't count on it. Costco's selection of games is generally sparse until the x-mas shopping season.

Book deal:

Gears of War: Coalitions end $3.99 for Kindle. http://www.amazon.com/Gears-War-Coal...=AG56TWVU5XWC2

This is the 4th book in the series. I actually like the books, I am 1/2 way through the third book, and was eventually going to get the 4th. She is planning a 5th book for May. Apparently this book will fill in the gaps between the 3rd book, Jacinto's Reminant (which is the story after Geras of War 2) and Gears of War 3 (thus sort of a prequil for Gears of War 3).

Xbox and PS3 Gamertag = Xerostomia
Wii = I'm too lazy to get the number

SMOKING HOT AMAZON DEAL!!!

4000 Microsoft Points for $31.32, sold by Amazon not some guy in a garage in South East Asia. I just ordered two, and might get two more if you guys don't buy them all by tomorrow.

I wonder who is having the sale that prompted Amazon to price match?

Does anyone know of any deals, (ongoing or coming up), for MS points? I missed the AMAZON one by an hour last week, and need to get my hands on ~4000 points before the end of the month. The best deal I can find so far is on EBAY at a whopping $46, which is a whole $3 savings.

If you need it by the end of the month just watch Woot....or slickdeals...it'll turn up. Best Buy will dump a bunch more on Ebay with free shipping. But if it doesn't happen remember....its ten bucks.

Radioshack will have the 4GB console + Kinect bundle for $299 with $100 gift card from tomorrow. I'll probably pickup one - recently sold my 1st gen xbox. Would still mean $240 - after tax & discount selling RS gift card on ebay.

Link.

Very tempting.


Sub-1080p/60fps is not next-gen.

Is that real? If so, I'll jump when Amazon matches it because I can easily spend $100 Amazon GC.

Apparently Best Buy has a $20 off deal (so $39.99 + tax) that they sent out via text message. Slick Deals thread here. You need to give the cashier the SKU in that first post for it to work. A few people claimed it didn't work for them, but that's probably because they didn't follow the directions. There are also directions towards the end of the thread on how to get the text sent to your own phone in case you feel more comfortable with that.
