    Sharpshooter bundle is worth it.

    Killzone 3 is pretty amazing with Sharpshooter and I assume Resistance 3 is as good.

    I looked at their website, I'm assuming neither the Nav nor the Sharpshooter bundle come with the Eye camera required to make the Move work? I guess that's not part of the sale...

    Right. There's that. But still, great deals on the rest of the hardware that facilitates an overall lower cost of entry.

    And some people already have the PS Eye camera from an Eye of Judgement purchase.

    I know I'm getting old when even half-off sales don't tempt me.

    Typical Gamestop. Out of curiosity, not so much the need to purchase. I looked at the site. Titles not available online were many, so I looked at in store pickup option. The $9.99 price magically is $39.99, the $9.99 is only good online. I hate stores that pull this nonsense. Total bs. If it is a price for merchandise, it is one price.
    What next? Shelf price indexing.
    Cashier: That"ll be $63.87
    Customer: It should be $31 and change it's on sale.
    Cashier: Well you see the shelf you got it from is closer to the register and not on sale, but If you get it off the far shelf by the door it's it's $31 and change.
    and...
    Customer: Whoa. Stop. What? The same title?
    Cashier: Yes. The one you got isn't a sale item. The one by the door is.
    Customer: Ok. (walks to shelf, then back to register) There are none left there.
    Cashier: Ok. That'll be $63.87
    Customer: I am I being "Punked" is this going to be a podcast or on g4tv?
    Cashier: What's g4tv? You want the game right?
    Customer: FML I'm out of here

    Um, the games and hardware will ring withe the 50% discounts perfectly fine at actual stores.

    This sale is NOT online only. (there are some online restrictions, some sale prices are in effect online, some are not)

    Um, from their site. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    PlayStation Move Navigation Controller NEW Online price

    $29.99 Why is the price
    different in-store? Although we strive to keep our online and in-store pricing consistent, we occasionally come across special online deals that cannot be duplicated in stores or special in-store deals that cannot be duplicated online for various reasons. Rather than pass over these opportunities, we choose to allow our customers to take advantage of them.

    Trust me - it will work when you get to the store. In-store sale prices aren't reflected in inventory (mark downs are, but not sale prices). When you get to the tore and they start to ring up, no matter what the sticker says, it'll be auto discounted to the sale prices.

    We're already out of sharp shooters, navs, Moves, and PS Heroes.

    Used PS3 Eyes are $24, which still makes the assembly that much better than the Pre-packaged ones (Sports Champions, Tiger)

    Okay. No need to derail this deal thread into some kind of anti-Gamestop diatribe.

    So the deal has some restrictions online. *EDIT: ACTUALLY IT DOESN'T* I'll be sure to clarify in my OP.

    People who want to take advantage of this deal should simply go to a Gamestop and buy the merchandise at 50% off.

    They'll get half off and they won't have to pay for mandatory, slow, inflated shipping costs. Everybody except UPS wins.

    Relax Frankie. Not derailing, just pointing out people shouldn't expect an in store pickup to reflect the same price. My intent is to point out the limitations of the deal. This way people know in advance and don't go to the store only to learn they are not going to get what they thought. It will eliminate wasted travel and time loss. The site should have a more obvious terms/conditions apply section for special deals such as this.

    No. Now you're just spreading misinformation.

    Let me attempt to clear up the confusion, because where you want to prevent people from getting screwed by questionable business practices (which I'm sure we all appreciate) - I want to make sure DP members don't miss one of the best deals of the year (hopefully also appreciated).

    ALL of the advertised prices will ring up at 50% off at the store.

    I purchased items yesterday that automatically rang with the discount and it's been confirmed by one Gamestop employee in-thread.

    Regarding "online pricing" ... After further investigation and correspondence with my local GameStop manager, I find that the online "pickup" option isn't even a PURCHASE IN ADVANCE option like some big box stores have, it's just a glorified "hold it for me" service - and when you get to the store the sale price will take effect at the register.


    So, no, there's no way that you can get the wrong price on these items. It's 50% off for the next few days.

    Get it while you can.

    This interested me for about two seconds until I realized nothing on Move interests me. The coolest tech coming out of Sony is the PSV (sounds like a venereal disease), and I'm not getting that until the inevitable hardware revision and price cut.

    Anyway, for those on the fence about Move, this should certainly tip 'em over.

    I am not arguing or denying purchases made by other members here, or deny confirmations from store employees. However if there was any confusion about reading the caveat I cut/pasted. It needs to be read again.

    The caveat from the gamestop site advised me this is an online promotion and explained further. NOTE, I did not write this disclaimer:
    "Why is the price different in-store? Although we strive to keep our online and in-store pricing consistent, we occasionally come across special online deals that cannot be duplicated in stores or special in-store deals that cannot be duplicated online for various reasons. Rather than pass over these opportunities, we choose to allow our customers to take advantage of them".

    Gamestop changes sales and promotions all the time. They just did not present this well. That caveat was in reference to a listed sale item I requested.

    That said, thanks for posting any sale thread. I certainly do my part to stimulate the economy 1 game at a time. Ok maybe many games.

    If you're only interested in new, the PS Eye is $28 from Amazon as a seller.

    Buy whatever Move controllers and Accessories from Gamestop, PS Eye from Amazon.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    So really the best deal would be to get the Move/Nav/Sharpshooter bundle for $60 and then the camera for $30. I also see that Gamestop has Sports Champions for $9.99 preowned. Not a bad deal for about $110 out the door...

    This actually looks like a better deal for anyone who also wants Resistance 3:

    http://us.playstation.com/games-and-...ition-ps3.html

    MSRP of $149.99 so you're getting the move, nav, eye, and sharpshooter for 90 bucks. You're not really saving anything versus the existing GS deal but you are getting everything in one box without having to go through at least two different vendors.
