It's a tough couple of months from a financial standpoint, isn't it? Just this week alone, we get LittleBigPlanet 2 and Mass Effect 2 for the PS3, and next week, Dead Space 2 drops.

That's not to mention February, which includes Killzone 3 and Bulletstorm on the same freakin' day, just as one example of upcoming goodness. So in order to make things a little easier on your wallet, Best Buy has a good deal running: a reader has turned us onto their Buy 2, Get 1 Free deal, which should allow you to save a fair amount of cash. The rules are pretty simple; you can mix and match titles from Best Buy's available library of PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, PSP, and DS, and yeah you need to buy three. But provided the first two are $29.99 or more, the third is absolutely free. So in other words, if you wait until next week, you can nab LBP2, ME2 and DS2 for the price of two new games rather than three. Of course, if you're mixing and matching with older titles, just remember that the least expensive title will be the one that's free; shoppers have come to expect such a caveat, yes?

Anything to help us ease the pain of having to play all these great games in the first quarter. Some people are still suffering from holiday bills, ya know.

Bulletstorm is pretty ballsy to go up against KZ3 on the same day.

Yes, but Bullitstorm is a multiplat game. KZ3 isnt even in the same conversation with bulletstorm.
KZ3 has a very good chance to get GOTY, even with this years line up. bulletstorm on the other hand will be passed up by many.

Probably, the 360 crowd is still glued to Black Ops.

It has the Epic name attached to it though so the 360 crowd will eat it up.

Anyone know if Bestbuy in Canada is having the same promotion?

I was thinking the same thing. Though if history serves me well we won't be getting this deal. We never get good deals like that up here for some reason.

It sucks becaus,e me now being in school, I could really use deals like that so as to get more bang for my buck as I need to carefully budget my dollars and cents. Though once I'm done I will be going on a game purchasing binge. 🙂 But I digress.( I still really wish we could get those deals though )

Isn't this Best Buy deal just for Jan 16-22?

See the following link (Page 9 for video games): http://bestbuy.shoplocal.com/bestbuy/default.aspx?action=entryflash&adref=header

While we can get LBP2 and ME2, DS2 doesn't come out until Jan 25, by which time the offer might have expired.

I want to get LBP2 CE, DS2 CE and ME2. Anyone know how I can use this offer to get all three?

unless they release dead space 2 a week early then i'm pretty sure you cant. from what i know, best buy sales lasts only for a week at most.

They're also offering LBP2 or GT5 with the purchase of a 160gb PS3. Those if you without a PS3 go get one now.

Got an email from Amazon, starting at Midnight PST on the 18th all gold box deals are game related.

Stupid promotion to say the least. I know, I know it's great that you get 3 games for the price of 2. Why doesn't it work on preorders? What I want is to order Mass Effect 2, Dead Space 2 and Killzone 3. Also, if you want DS2, LBP2 and ME2 you have to wait until 1/25/11 because it won't work on preorders. Just a dumb idea. Why not include preorders!??

i would do that but its credit towards a future purchase. i dont shop online often since i dont have a credit card right now so to me that deal is still buying each game at 60 bucks

hey ben, if i remember correctly, bestbuys buy 2 get 1 free game deal is only for this week ending 1/22. dead space 2 comes out the following week so you couldnt get it with the deal.

anyways, theres still another good sale from kmart though. if you buy littlebigplanet 2 or mass effect 2 for ps3, you get 50% off another game priced at 59.99. the good part of this deal is that its goes up to 2/12 so dead space will be included. i dont know if collectors edition of littlebigplanet 2 is included though.

also, mass effect 2 will be on sale at kmart for 45 bucks on the week of 1/30. if the sales stacks, i'm planning to buy mass effect 2 for 45 bucks and get 50% off littlebigplanet 2.

not a bad idea.
JB have been selling games fairly cheap lately, i picked up darksiders, just cause 2, black ops, mirrors edge, bad company 2, batman AA, lost planet 2 and burnout paradise for 220 bucks!
not bad, each are normally 40 bucks and BO in EB, well there still charging 89 bucks for it!
EB are lucky they have their 7 day policy otherwise no one would shop there!
there a complete utter rip off!
