If you hook this up to your tv your game system wont be able to use the sound? I know nothing about sound bars but I just bought a panasonic tv and the sound quality is not great.....

Yes but you will only get stereo audio because of the hdmi drm not 5.1, which defeats the purpose of having a home theater:

I'm honestly surprised this deal didn't get more attention.

Best Buy and Amazon sold a similar model to this for $199.99 in January, and that deal made front-page.

With the V.me promo, $142 is pretty dirt cheap for a 5.1 Home Theater System with a 3D Blu-ray Player.

I have this surround sound system and I have my XBOX 360 hooked up to it and it sounds great no issues here.

If you have more then one device you would like to hook up try using a HDMI switch.

The warranty of 30 days concerns me. The price is awesome no doubt. Maybe we can look into purchasing warranty.

Stereo which could run as pro logic or whatever they have now a days. It's a suggested option that's all.

Ah, okay. I didn't notice the 30 day warranty coverage.

Well... SquareTrade [squaretrade.com] has extended warranties if that's an issue of concern.

2 Years would be $18.99
3 Years would be $29.99

That's before any discounts. They routinely have 30% off coupons, but I have a 40% off coupon they sent to my e-mail. PM me if you want it.
