According to a thread at Cheapass Gamer, Best Buy will have some very nice deals on some 360/PS3 games starting 1/11.  For 360, Major League Baseball 2K8, Face Breaker, Condemned 2, Turok, and Ninja Gaiden II will be $10, Guitar Hero III, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Battlefield: Bad Company, Enemy Territory : Quake Wars, and Unreal Tournament III will be $20, and Spider-man: Web Of Shadows, Rock Band 2, Mercenaries 2, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, and Saints Row 2 will be $40.  Other than Turok, NG2, Enemy Territory, UT3, Rock Band 2, and C&C 3, the same prices also apply for the PS3 versions.

Ninja Gaiden 2 for $10 sounds about right.  I picked it up for $19.99 about 3 weeks ago, but would return it if this were true.  Thanks.  Will check it out on the 11th.

ng2 at that price is great.  that's a clearance sale price if ever i saw one. 

i in for turok and ng2 if i can find them.

bf: bc for 20 sounds good, but i don't know how big the online is anymore so sp better be halfway decent and not a short 6 hour prep for mp.

I might jump on NGII.

Speaking as someone who has played Ninja Gaiden II from start to finish exactly seven times (once in regular mode, then six times to achieve Weapon Mastery with the single sword, double sword, quarterstaff, ninja claws, Kusari-gama, and scythe, respectively), I say, "Geronimo!" thumbsup

So what are the gems in that deal? Have a PS3, but not familiar with most console games.

Word to the wise, you better check your BB if you hope to get a copy of NG2 for $10.  I went by today to see how many copies they had and they had a whopping 3.   At $10 those will last 43 seconds.  So, I am going to grab one today and then go by tomorrow and price adjust. 


Just a thought.  NG2 at $10 is just way to good to pass.

I visited Best Buy yesterday at noon. Figured they'd have most things still in stock.

The four games I had targetted from the list (NG2, Condemned 2, MLB 2k8, Battlefield: Bad Company) were all sold out. The secondary title I wanted (UT3) was also sold out. Granted I wasn't there at opening - but to be that sold out of your advertised items is pretty lame.

They had plenty of copies of Turok and Facebreaker though. Neither of which I could bring myself to purchase.

I'm not that interested in NGII but I stopped in while shopping for other stuff yesterday.  Didn't see any copies of the game on the shelves.  However, they had TONS of Guitar Hero III bundles for 39.99.  This was at the Evanston, IL store.  It may be a chain wide sale, though.

BB tends not to do these clearances until most of the stores are already out of stock. smile

There are more deals the following week, 1/18 - Far Cry 2 and Pure for $30, and Prince of Persia and Naruto : The Broken Bond for $40.  Prices are good for either on the 360 or PS3 versions of each game.

keep your eyes open for pure at target.  i grabbed a copy there for $15 a while back, so you might get lucky if your store isn't camped by the cag crowd.
