    Yep, last year's deal of the year is back. Good on any games $19.99-$49.99. Online code for Amazon.Com is 906642 and it is working RIGHT NOW. Just ordered Suikoden III, Vice City, and LOTR The Two Towers. PS2 games only.

    Thanks for the free advertisement. [​IMG]
    Come on into the stores too! No need to wait for shipping if you've got a TRU near by. One note: It starts in-store on Sunday 10/27 (see coupon in your local Sunday newspaper).

    Awesome, time to stock up. I think I'll go ahead and get 12 or so games.

    fyi it appears that the code only works on games priced $49.99 and also does not work on games shipping in November or later (ie. NHL2K3)

    That sucks. There were some later releases like Shinobi and Rygar that I wanted to get but I couldn't. I also tried to get Wild Arms 3, Sly Cooper, Ratchet and Clank(all priced $39.99) and I couldn't.

    In the end, with one order, I got GTA:VC, Suikoden 3, and Contra. I made another order with games that will ship right away and got Dynasty Tactics, Burnout 2, and Red Faction 2.

    I'm probably going to take Red Faction to either Wal-Mart or Circuit City and get Deathrow.

    Anybody know how this works in store? Do you need a coupon? Is the coupon in the Toys 'R Us ad in the paper, or will they have it on location too? Kinda like how you can go to Best Buy/Circuit City and get their flyer in store. I'd rather not have to hunt down a newspaper, and then go to a store and not find the games that I want. On the other hand, I don't trust Amazon.com to necessarily ship things soon, since they're not listing Suikoden III or Contra as being released until tomorrow, so it's hard to figure out how much stock they have vs. the # of orders I'm sure they've been deluged with.

    Last year the coupon was in the weekly ad and the ad was readily available in the store. Amazon does suck at shipping, last year they took forever to get my games to me. I made an order with 3 games already released so hopefully that will get to me soon and hold me over until my 3 preorders get here.

    Last year, I just bought GTA3 at Target to hold me over and then returned the unopened one from Amazon to Target when it got to me.

    Yeah last year they were slow shipping out the games, I e-mailed them and asked why it was taking so long and they had the nerve to tell me that I shouldn't be complaining because I'm getting a game for free. Can you believe that? Anyway, I ordered again this year and more then likely will just buy the games at Wal-Mart then return the games from Amazon when they arrive here.

    Yea, the coupon will be available in-stores. Last year's deal was only on EA games (there was also a deal with Acclaim games). This year it's ALL PS2 games...a much better deal.

    Yeah, the IGN boards were abuzz with tales of 2 Jampacks and a brand new game for $14. It was pretty amusing. I tried one just for the hell of it but ended up canceling when I got an email invoice for the full amount......and they credited my card $49.99(sweet!) even though they hadn't charged anything to it. With this kind of management, it's no wonder it took Amazon so long to turn a profit. Of course, they also did screw up my legitimate order: I ended up waiting a month longer than I should have for MGS2, and they actually charged $5 to ship it MEDIA MAIL! Note to customer service: when you're already pathetically behind the promised ship date, it might be a good idea to choose a method that isn't the cheapest and slowest.

    By the way, if you want the deal on a

    Went to the store a bit ago and picked up Suikoden III, The Two Towers, and Hot Pursuit 2. Anyone else go today?

    The add in the paper doesn't state that the games have to be $49, just $49.99 and under. Maybe the online ordering system is hosed?

    Today I went there and got Wild Arms 3, Sly Cooper, and a "filler game" to take back and exchange for Ratchet and Clank when it comes out.

    Already got my order of Dynasty Tactics, Burnout 2, and Red Faction 2(swapped for DeathRow).

    Now the waiting game begins.....Suikoden 3, Contra, and Vice City...mmmmm.


    I now ask myself, do I really have time for all these when I'm also getting Steel Battalion, Unreal, Mechassault, Metroid Prime....(and maybe Shinobi, Rygar, RE0, and Ghost Recon pending reviews. Good thing I'm only taking 12 hours this semester.
