Thread Details

I've noticed that it seems like despite a lot of us hanging around these forums all day (lots of us at work) that we miss deals since we are in here instead of the Hot Deals section. I think they have something similar to this in the Lounge and thought it would be a good idea for us too.

3 month trial of Amazon Prime even for those who have already used their one-month trial before. Takes 2 minutes to sign up for; costs $0.00.

Thanks for that one. I upgraded a game preorder to release day delivery for free after signing up. I tried it on another preorder and it didn't work. I'm guessing that Prime gives you one free release day delivery per year.

These daily steam sales are killing what little self control I have. I bought the Eidos pack for 50 since it included Batman: AA, both versions of Deus Ex (I've only played the first), Thief, and some other crap I didn't care about.
I agree with this for the most part. if they throw fallout 3 GOTY edition out there for $17.50 I will probably buy it otherwise I'm probably done with this sale, hopefully

Bioshock $5
Torchlight $5
Audiosurf $2.50
Elf Bowling Holiday Vacation $1
and some other crap.

Nay. Unlimited release date deliveries as you are paying for the service with Prime.

HCF you sound like me when I buy a new system.. I go out and get a ton of games for it then beat a few but by that time new awesome games come out that I start to play, then I have all these older games that I haven't even started.

Of course, you may not be anything like me (except getting all the sweet older games cheap) and you might beat them all!

have fun with your sweet new pc

Really? It worked on my Darksiders preorder but the release day option is not there on my Bioshock 2 preorder and it would be shipping before the 3 month trial is over.

I ordered 3 or 4 things in a week period with release date shipping on a prior "trial".

I'm such a whore for the Steam sale. Here's my haul:
Left 4 Dead $7.50
Left 4 Dead 2 $37.50
STALKER $2
id Super Pack $24
Dragon Age: Origins Deluxe $49 (was a xmas present)
Bioshock $5
Rome: Total War $2.50
SW: KotOR $5
Jade Empire $3.75
Mr. Robot $2
Braid $2.50
HL: Source $2.50
Mass Effect $5

There's still about 4-5 more things I'll probably buy, I just want to see if they happen go to "item of the day" sale. I bought Torchlight about a month ago for $20. I was a sad panda when it sold for $5 the other day. It's a sweet, sweet game though.

Way of the Samurai 3 for the 360 is now down to $23.58! That's a crazy good price for a newish game:

Did you RROD? laugh out loud

To be frank, I haven't seen any reasonable console deals going around since Black Friday time or maybe some right before Xmas sales.

There is always dell with their coupons but right now they just have the 120gb Holiday Elite going for $300 - 10-15% coupon (if you can find one that still works) + tax. Not too much savings to be had with that.

No RROD. For some reason I am getting the "open tray" error. Basically it thinks there isn't a disc in the drive when there really is. If I open and close the disc tray a bunch of times it will eventually read the disc fine, it's just a pain in the a$$. I've already opened the box up, so at this point any warranty I might have had is null and void. I am looking at a couple fixes for it. If I try those and can't get them to work, my last resort is to buy a new machine. I'm going to try cleaning the laser tonight to see if that helps. Wish me luck. laugh out loud

Don't forget to unplug the system from the wall Wink laugh out loud

Yeah... even though another $150-300 sounds like a lot it probably makes sense when you think about what you've invested into your 360 already

skeeze if you are still under warranty, just slap another warranty sticker on it off ebay (or from a new system if you buy one)

I actually just bought a cheap dvd cleaning disc from Target on my lunch for $10. We'll see if that does anything. I get my yearly bonus next week so maybe splurging on a new machine won't hurt so bad. laugh out loud

I know I'm not under warranty anymore(not for that anyway).
