So you've got your fancy new PS3 Slim, and you want as many games as possible for it (of course). You already saved a good chunk of cash by waiting for that price drop, and if you're still on a savings high, Best Buy has good news for you.
Now pay attention, 'cuz this deal only lasts through Saturday, September 12: for this week only, you can buy one PS3 game and get a second at half the price; simply follow the rules over at the official Best Buy site . This offer not only includes nearly 150 PS3 titles but it also expands to encompass pre-orders, too. In other words, if you want to drop a deposit on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , you can snag the likes of inFamous , Madden NFL 10 , Batman: Arkham Asylum or any number of other great games for only $30. We're not entirely sure how many times you can do this (they probably don't let you stack up a bunch of games and get half off on a bunch of others), but it's still a damn good deal. Not everyone has a gazillion dollars these days and although we still maintain that games aren't too expensive – the entertainment time one receives is almost always worth it – they're still not cheap. So if you want to stock up on a few of the best games the PS3 has to offer, now is definitely the time.
Obviously, this is great incentive for pre-ordering, what with all the awesome holiday releases on tap. So pre-purchase one of your impending favorites and get 50% off on a game that's available now!
Wow now that's a pretty good deal.
I'm glad I didn't buy that game I was going to 3 days ago.
Sweet deals man. I would deffinitly do that. But can you pre order Unchrted 2 and pay full price and then also pre order ratchet and clank then get half price. Or does the game have to be out now?
No pre-orders, unfortunately. Only what's in stock and on display.
I've already hit my BB on this deal. Picked up 4 $30 games, came up to $90 total. MGS4, Oblivion, GTA4 and Far Cry 2.
Thinking of getting Army Of Two and Mirror's Edge. Those go for $20 each.
…..and don't forget folks, you get the most bang for your buck if both games are the same price!
Uncharted 2 and COD:MW2 here I come!
The site says that Pre-Orders are excluded!

They "fixed" the PS3 deals to exclude pre-orders as they forgot about that last week with the Xbox 360 deals and added the exclusion by Tuesday.
Sorry folks, I just checked this offer. According to the web page, pre-orders are excluded, so no Uncharted 2 – unfortunately.

Hey highlander, Im having some issues with PSN. I rented a movies, one on my account. Paid for it then when I try and download it it times out and gives me an error code 80710723. The second movie I rented on my wifes account. It downloads 378mbs of 4470 then it times out. Demos and games download fine, I'm able to play MvC2 with out issue.
Any ideas? This is the second time I've paid for connent and haven't been able to download it. Sony doesn't seem to know what's wrong.
I've tried wired and wireless I have a 2wire modem/router qwest is the provider. All ports are open and firewalls are down.

Wish I could help you Jawks. I've never purchased a video off the PSN. I simply use my computer as a media server and stream all my movies, tv shows, etc. via wireless router.
I'd call Sony and cancel the order and have them refund your credit card.
Last time it took me a week to get them to refund the money back to my wallet.
No refunds is their policy. I may have to go your route and start streaming movies and stop buying content from PSN all together if Sony doesn't fix this. Last time this happened I bought R&C Quest for Booty and couldn't download it.
Boo on them then.
try disabling the media server settings. But if you email sony, you might get an additional download for your purchased content within 2 days. Thats what happened when i repaired my ps3. the backup didnt include the videos and when i emailed them about it, they just gave me credit to download it again.
Well, I read a few posts/reports about that error and the most common theme is that it's a problem with the router configuration.
From what I am reading, the suggestion seems to be that the router is blocking some of the ports used by the protocols that are used to download the movie.
The suggested resolution is to unblock certain ports on your router.
I don't know whether you have a separate router acting as a firewall, or if you have a PC that serves as the firewall on your network, but on either of them you will need to unblock the ports listed below. Unblocking basically means 'opening' them, or setting them to allow all traffic. Some routers have a very secure default setting where ports are blocked by default and you have to open them as needed.
From what I can find you need to open the following: TCP port: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP port: 3478, 3479, 3658.
You may have to refer to the documentation for your router/firewall for instructions.
Hmmm, not sure how to do that on a mac. I'll check it out. Thanks Highlander. What you said makes more sense then the advice Sony is offering.
Sweet deal. Too bad I already bought all the games I want until Uncharted 2.
yeah, im the same. but mini ninjas come out the 8th and its included. The game seemed fun but i just cant choose it over uncharted 2.
Bestbuy also had a 60inch plasma on sale for $999, I quickly bought one.
u2 is gonna look niiiiice on that
Do plasmas still suffer from burn in?
Yes but you should go to AV forums to understand it further.
My dad bought a 60 inch Sony plasma back in 2005 and it still looks amazing today. The only thing I recommend when purchasing a plasma is to get the extended warranty because they are known to not age as well as LCD or LED. For 999 dollars I'm willing to risk it for 60inches, plus I already have a 46 inch Sony LCD in case the plasma doesn't work out.
How about that Ben!
did you get one of those nifty ones that let you flush the screen to remove burn in
Don't the newer plasma screens use orbiting pixels to reduce burn-in?
Too bad there's no games I need right now, sigh.
That's a terrible dilemma.
I know, feels pretty good.
u need uncharted1
You are correct Create, but I still won't pay full price for it. I dunno if BB has it as a greatest hits on the shelves yet. Does this deal even apply to greatest hits?
World I rebought the game on amazon for 24 dollars.
I'll get on it after I've beaten the other half dozen I need to finish.
if u need help beating games. let me know =)
What a deal! :O
The lady at the store lied to me I pre oerdered Uncharted 2 and I was gonna get Batman for like 30$ but she said you couldn't.
I think you know what you need to do…..
If only it was in Canada :*(……..
once again, the red and white get shafted by the rest of the continent
This deal isn't going on in Mexico either so I don't see how Canada was the only country getting shafted.
I can't wait to move out of this cold ass place.
@ Flutter Nutter:
Very true, but from a market perspective, Canada should be equal to or almost as equal to the U.S. in terms of importance.
However, Mexico counts too, I apologize for leaving it out 😉
im gonna try do this in dollars (correct me if im wrong) but if u buy a game worth $40, couldnt you get a $60 half price or would they make u pay full for that and half for the $40 game
The most expensive is always full price, hence hezzron73's advice (see above).
Well I just got MGS4 Limited Edition at walmart for $19.83 minus my discount (on rollback from $44.83, yes the limited edition) 😉
i wouldent buy a Tv just yet.
laser TVs and OLED Tvs are coming out in 6 months or so, and once they do prices on LCDs and plasmas and LEDs will plummet.
o and sonys bringing their new 3D Tvs out next year to.
i wonder if it will be proper 3D though like at sega world, you see bullets flying to your face than turn around and their flying past you.
if its just the image popping off the TV im going to be dissapointed.
ive always wanted to play killzone 2 with bullets flying at my head.
Now that would be awesome. =D
If only i could book a holiday to the US now so i could benefit from this deal also.
You'd have to buy a lot of games to make it worthwhile. And you'd likely get dinged by customs on your return.
