    Also, you can get 4000pt XBOX live cards on ebay between $30-33 last I checked (earlier today I got 3 for $90.99).

    You can find 1600pt cards for $15.

    For anyone really into Street Fighter 4, arcade fighters, or just collecting in general, Capcom has their SFIV standard edition and tournament edition fightsticks back in stock. The TE edition sticks use Sanwa parts, and is supposed to be a 1:1 experience compared to the SFIV arcade unit controls.

    http://shop.capcom.com/store/capcom...=wY-B1AoBAiMAAEO7-p4AAAAB&rests=1245936798885

    These were very hard to find as recent as this week, so you could always get on and try selling on ebay if you were into that sort of thing.

    xbox live had been available for around $30, and 1600pt cards for like $15. It's a very good deal, but I wouldn't call it $105ish value is all.

    Seriously.

    Two great games right out of the box and this only adds fuel to the fire of a possible price cut shortly.

    Per Slickdeals there is a huge sale on PS3 games from Sony Style going on right now and some deals are very very nice. However there is one problem...the Sony Style website is down right now and no one knows if the sale will still be going on after it gets back but if it is then there are some great deals available...and here are a few of my picks (oh and by the way Shipping is FREE):

    Bioshock - $16.48
    Gran Turismo 5 Prologue: $15.88
    Assassin's Creed: $16.48
    MGS4: $15.88 (Half Price for a great game)
    Resistance 1: $14.98
    The Orange Box: $10.68 (for 5 games the $60 was worth it)
    Virtua Fighter 5: $11.98
    Fallout 3: $33.08
    Burnout Paradise: $10.68
    Uncharted: $32.38


    Definitely some great games and great deals there. Hopefully if the site comes back I can get Bioshock for the PS3 for $5 cheaper than what I was going to pay for it on the 360. :woot:

    Anyway remember that the site is down and this deal may be done...this is just a heads up in case it isn't. :up:

    Oh and here is the link to slickdeals:

    I tried to get in on it, but could barely get to their website, let alone navigate it. It is speculated that many things are pricing mistakes.

    Edit: There's like 4 games I'd get too, now that I can see prices w/o adding them to my cart.

    so after having all the guitar hero's, rock bands, etc's at college and then moving out here last year with none, i've been itching to start over. Basically, i want to spend the least amount possible... so far, if anyone is interested, i've found these two deals may be best to start over on the 360:

    http://www.guitarherostore.com/Guitar-Heo-II-III-2-Games-Xbox-360
    this is guitar hero 2 and 3 together for 29.99, but no guitars

    http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3055797&clickid=cart
    this is the old school wired guitar for 9.99. at toys r us.

    so, basically i'm going to be able to get both gh 2 and 3, and 2 guitars, for under 70 bucks including shipping&handling. i personally liked the wired guitars better anyway (the strum bar thing was easier to control and seemed to make fewer note errors than the later 'smooth' click ones.

    i think once i get my next paycheck i'm gonna pull the trigger on these. while rock band is fun, it's a lot of stuff to have lying around in our somewhat small apartment, and its still too expensive for me at this point

    EDIT: I should clarify, these are the best deals i've found for getting brand new equipment. you can probably find the games cheaper used, but i wouldn't want a used guitar, who knows how beat up it would be. and plus for 9.99 its not bad for a brand new guitar

    Also to piggy back on this, a lot of the time you buy on dell if you sign up for or are on Dell's Preferred Account card you can get an extra 3-4% off. Not sure if it will work here but its worth a shot.

    Just when you pay make sure to set your payment method to the Dell Preferred Account (even if it is your default setting because a new screen is brought up when you switch the payment method that allows you to use the 3-4% discount). Then just hope it works. :up:

    I just wanted to let you guys know that dell has the 360 wireless adapter on sale for 69.99 with free shipping. Might actually make it close to worth it.

    It's much faster than Wireless G (802.11g) which is pretty much standard wireless these days. N is where things are going. Useless if you don't have a wireless N router. They're just future proofing the thing.
