    I am making a slight change this week. If there are some slightly older games, meaning a month or so old, I will be leaving them off the list if they are being run at MSRP. I hope you can all understand this. Some flyers have 40 or 50 games at normal prices and, in my opinion, it's not worth posting them.
    Here we go.

    i completely understand not posting older games advertised at MSRP. i don't think that anyone looking at the wrapup cares to see them listed. as for formatting...the k-mart price for me runs into the the next line (just below the name of the next game). last week's looked perfect.

    i thought i'd be set with just Metroid Prime this week, but with sale prices on Fusion and RE:0 i may be out of a considerably larger amount of money.

    Metroid Prime, Metroid Fusion, Splinter Cell, and Star Wars: Jedi Knight II (XBox) for me this week, all on Tuesday or Wednesday. [​IMG] Most games I've ever bought at one time. I'll have them all finished by April 2004. [​IMG]

    I had a PC meltdown today. I'm hoping to figure out a way to get the thing looking good again.

    I guess I might just have to announce any other companies good prices in a seperate section of the post.

    Thanks for your patience,

    Glen

    Don't know if this has been mentioned, but if you are willing to wait for the shipment, if you preorder Metroid: Prime from BestBuy.com, they'll give you a $10 digital coupon, effectively making the game $39.99! Best deal I've found so far...

    Wow! These XBox bundles are getting too hard to pass up. I mean 4 games and an extra contoller thrown in for $249.99. I have several friends who have jumped in because of the bundles and XBox Live. A big week with Splinter Cell coming out. However, I am patient and will wait closer to Christmas before I buy the XBox. A manager of a Gamestop I frequent insists he has heard from a reliable source that MS will lower the price on the XBox at least $50 in the not so distant future.

    Here's the link I found on Xbox.com relating to the $10 rebate on NFL Fever 2003.
    I'd consider getting it, but I didn't like the game all that much.

    Jason,
    They email the digital coupons usually 3 or 4 days after the release date. I preordered mine 2 weeks ago, so hopefully they'll get enough copies in stock so that I'll receive mine not too much later than the release date. This title is the main reason why I bought a Gamecube in the first place... As for the $10 digital coupon, I just checked their site, and the link has been taken off. However, the title is still listed under their "Promo/Special Offers" category for GC titles, so it should work out.
