You know, with all these awesome games hitting store shelves in the fourth quarter – so what else is new? – it can be a real pain in the wallet. This is why you need to look for some helpful retail deals…
Well, if this rumor from HotBloodedGaming proves true, you'll have a chance to get one game completely free at Best Buy, thanks to a promotion that's supposed to start on October 25. As you can see by this leaked pic, they should be offering a Buy 2, Get 1 Free deal on all their video games; it seems you'll also be able to mix and match to your heart's content, too. Therefore, if you wanted to buy Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , Brutal Legend and Borderlands , you'd really only have to pay for two of them, which is a damn good deal. Of course, as is always the case in situations like this, there are outstanding factors: first of all, it's possible that not all Best Buy stores will be doing this so be sure to check things out ahead of time, and secondly, there's always a chance that some games simply don't count towards the promotion. A consumer needs to consider such things, right? And it's not exactly official, anyway. But if it is, you won't find it difficult to locate three titles you really want; heck, if you wait until November, you could probably find six games you want and do it twice . Hmm…wonder if they'd let you do that.
Also, be on the lookout for a price drop for the PSP Go. We're not saying it's definitely going to happen, but plenty of European retailers have already slashed the price of the new portable.
Luckily I already picked up Uncharted 2. Ben do u play video games?
Do you READ this site?
JcBball717, are you kidding me? Of course he plays video games, girl.
Ben plays video games? I though he was a wall street analyst.
haha wow everyone took that a lil too serious
Who is Ben?
great deal, and they'll actually have demon's souls!
nice deal… too bad i don't have $120 to spend on three games :(… otherwise i'd be getting batman: arkham asylum, borderlands and uncharted 2 next week… maybe i'll buy a couple scratch-off tickets in hopes of winning $150 :D…
Whats the best buy of Britain?! f*** HMV for not doing something similar to this
I lose…again. I am pickin up R&C:ACIT on Tuesday but can't afford another game to get a free game. damn…(as I go into deep thought contemplating robbing a bank or whoring myself out….hmmm….decisions…)
Dude, return it and get it as a 2nd game. And then get a 3rd game on the house.
Actually, he is saying he doesn't have money for a second game. My question would be, did you buy Uncharted 2 yet? If you did, buy that again, Ratchet and Clank, and get your 3rd game free. Then Return Uncharted 2 with your original receipt. Sock it to the man I say!
This sucks. This is exactly why PEI(where i live) needs a best buy.
Don't they ship to PEI ? I doubt it'll be in-store only.
PEI is in Canada. I imagine this article is referring to American BBs. Canadian BBs don't run the same deals.
Lol, PEI doesn't have a Best Buy? Like the the whole province? lol I thought Ihad it bad in Ontario, I live like 30 mins from a best buy lol.
This sucks. This is exactly why PEI(where i live) needs a best buy.
Wow — insane deal! I'll have to take advantage — even though I'm so backed up on games I already have right now it's ridiculous.
I could get tekken 6, ninja gaiden sigma 2, rachet and clank ACIT. but i dont have the money anymore, after uncharted 2 and modern warfare 2, i gotta save up for next year.
Least you can get uncharted 2 and mw2 T-T
🙁 why aren't you in the UK yet BB!!!
I blame the parents.
The color yellow is concidered very effeminate in the UK, so Best Buy would be an utter failure. Besides, they would have a difficult time with the dollar to pounds conversion. Would be a complete financial and cultural disaster.
It just goes to show you what the mark up on games is, and it also demonstrates that retailers CAN charge less than $60 (in this case $40 for three $60 games) and still make a profit.
I missed out on Toys 'R' Us's buy 2 get 1 free deal so maybe I can catch this one if its all true ^_^
Are they still trying to sell CODMW for 49.99 ? What a laugh. Helloooo Activision! Everybody alreayd owns that crap.
Anyways, sounds like a good sale. If it applies to their $20 games then I'll probably go that route instead of the $60 games.
Hey hey hey hey…CoD4 isn't crap.
Bad Alienage! Letting your disdain for a money-grubbing publisher skew your opinion on the 2007 GOTY. 😉

EVERYONE PLZ SUGGEST!!!
So my story… I own some PS3 games and no PS3…. what I have: Uncharted, Littlebigplanet, Valkyria Chronicles, Eternal Sonata, Bloodshot 2, Bioshock, Heavenly Sword, Ninja Gaiden, Virtua Fighter 5 and Resistance… so given this fact- what other three games can you suggest me (I'm asking 'cause you guys have probably played them – unlike me…)
I know Uncharted 2 is a must… >……….<
Ah I sound silly
May I suggest purchasing a PS3? You may not have heard, they recently had a price drop. Are you the type that buys gasoline before having a car to drive? =)
Why buy PS3 games without a PS3?
It is not like you won't be able to find those games once you do get a PS3.
^I already know that oO…. But right now I am outside my house working+school for 60 hours… honestly I feel dead and no time to play
Since that's the case… I'm getting the games I LIKE and eventually a PS3 when I know I can use it (and hopefully by then there may be other colors out/bundled up with a game/new design) <– waiting for that moment
Are you kidding me? Talk about backwards. Buddy, these games aren't going anywhere. By the time you get around to buying a PS3 those games will be selling for under $20 each. You're paying top dollar to have the games now but won't buy a PS3 because you don't have the money?
Mystearica, listen to these people. Get the PS3 and then buy the games. Just to give you an example of how cheap these games can get, look at this list of game at Fry's Electronics that are being discounted.
The Bigs 2: $16.16
NHL 09: $5.01
NHL 2K9: $4.74
Rise of the Argonauts: $5.85
These are just some of the games that are being discounted. I believe you can get Bioshock at Sears for under $5 right now.
I wonder if Best Buy would consider an I OWE YOU. My landlord doesn't, but Best Buy in this tough economy might let me haggle… hmmmm (ponders into the abyss)
Is there a site that regularly leaks weekly adds, such as Best Buy's? Or is this just an exception? I'd love to know.
I think it only "leaks" when BB wants to create hype.
dealmein.net AND dealcather.com
I go to them every day, saved hundreds, maybe thousands thanks to these sites.
Employees post the ads all of the time because they get shipped to the stores well in advance. I see these regularly for Target, Best Buy, Toys R Us and it used to apply to Circuit City but they're not around anymore. There are even managers that will post national and regional clearance prices on games. Has saved me a LOT of money.
I may have to take them up on this offer, if it includes games I don't have already.
I understand what you're saying – but from experience it is NOT always the case… example
Uncharted – $17
Littlebigplanet – $29
Valkyria Chronicles $30 (will definitely go up in price)
Eternal Sonata – $28 (I can guarantee it WILL sell for 60+ in one-two year… that's how RPGs go unless they are BIG stream ones)
Condemened Bloodshot 2 – $15
Bioshock – $19
Heavenly Sword – $29 (another game that will go up in price)
Ninja Gaiden – $13
Virtua Fighter 5 – $11
Resistance – $11
Forgot to add to my first post:
Turok for $9 (ToysRUs)
Assassin's Creed $9 (Wal-Mart anniversary)
Haze 9 (ToysRUs)
Folklore (Wal-Mart regular)
So me? Well I ALWAYS watch out for deals – most of these games I got from eBay (still on my account page so I can prove the prices) or amazon… so now I'm thinking this is a pretty good deal – I just hope they have Demon's Soul
OMG!!!! I didn't realize how many games I own… and no PS3 LOL
You must get Demons souls you won't be disappointed if you like a game that is extremely challenging that game is for you 🙂
Man wish this was the deal here in Ontario Canada where I live Oh well we'll see what boxing day bring me 😉
^LOL I live in Ontario Canada 😛 But in Windsor – so I commute all the time to Wayne State University in Detroit… and now that the dollar is so low – I think it's probably a great time to buy games/PS3
Dude, your methods are weird but okay. I'll bite…*sighs*…
-Modern Warfare 1 & 2
-A great fighting game (SF4, BlazBlue, Tekken6)
-A great 2010 EA/2k Sports game
-and maybe Dragon Age if the PS3 version runs well.
Dare I get into PSN titles? Dare I go into next year? Cop a 3. Then worry about the games.

I missed out on the Toys'R'Us deal. So, if this deal is REAL…I'm catching up on my backlog, baby. YEA!
I still in Batman, Katamari, 2K10, Brutal Legend, Borderlands, Tekken 6, R&C, and Infamous.
If they have 3 of those…I'm all for it.
Hope this comes to Canada. I've already got uncharted so that just leaves brutal legend, nba 2k10, a crack in time, and wwe 2010. And I know how horribly cheesy wrestling is but it makes for a good fighting game and I have yet to get one this gen.
That's three weeks in a row of B2G1 free. Crazy.
What was the third place that had the deal? I know about Toys R Us last week, and presumably Best Buy next week.
Amazon had it, too but theirs was on select games from each platform. Plus, you got free shipping, no sales tax and the 10% ECA discount. Score!
