Good find VG!

You should tell XBA about it so that they can throw it in their 'Deals of the Week' section.

Crimson Skies, ESPN Basketball, and Simpsons looks like a pretty dang good deal to me.

Thanks again!

This is the correct link, as I just edited the one in the original post because he was using a referral link in his.

VGTalk, read my warning I issued and refrain from putting your referral in there, but thanks for the head's up on the deal.

Thanks Casper-XBA for removing the link and not banning me or something to that matter...I did a quick copy and paste of the link from my website onto here...very classy act you guys are over here at XBoxAddict.com.

Anyways, just a reminder that the deal starts on 10/26, and the PlayStation 2 deal will be running at the same time the XBox promotion is. The link for that deal is:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/browse/-/10363061/104-9552628-6339940


Again, the PlayStation 2 promotion starts on 10/26, but you can preview the games selection there.

Enjoy!

Ya I dunno about 50 percent at $20 but some of those games You can get alot cheaper..like from $29-$39 new...

Then again the free game makes up for it If you add it all up I guess.

i'm curious as to how you found that link? I've tried tracing my way back through amazing starting from your link and i can't find a single word on an xbox 3 for 2 deal. The only promotion i find is for the gamecube. also i cant find any real info on even the link you sent. no details....nothin. you would think amazon would atleast want to mention the deal, otherwise whats the point in having it.

Looks like the sale was expanded to include 2 for 1 for $49.99 games and 2 for 1 for $39.99 games. However, the game list has changed, with the most noticeable loss being Crimson Skies. :cuss:

$39.99 Games (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/feature/-/507674/ref=t_hp_cs_1_3/104-0791292-9872747)
$49.99 Games (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/feature/-/507675/ref=t_hp_cs_1_4/104-0791292-9872747)

It is kind of weird though. When you look at their virtual catalog (http://www2.toysrus.com/our/tru/prom/index.cfm) of weekly specials, there is clearly a copy of Crimson Skies on the front cover, but it does say games vary by store. Unfortunately, my closest ToysRUs is over an hour away. :cuss:

The sale IS going to be in the store. I saw the ad in my sunday Toys R Us paper. It's also going on for the PS2. Another thing you guys may want to look for is when you put a $5 dollar deposit down for Project Gotham Racing 2, you get a mini wheel for only $5 dollars.

Looks like I'll be getting Rainbow Six 3, ESPN Basketball, and maybe Crimson Skies.

I know crimson sies is not on the list but it doesnt matter. Add the 3 games you want in your shopping cart(cant be preorders). Add the code at the checkout and you got your deal.:cheers:

You don't have to pick from the list they offer.

Any 3 games in the pricepoint will work.

Just confirm the free game before you check out and everything should be groovy:)

That sounds good, but you never know which games it applies to. Usually not the top sellers!

10-26-2003, 07:13 PM
very strange...I refreshed the page and a different list of games popped out...one that included Crimson Skies! And just now, I refreshed the page again, and Crimson Skies is off the list. So i guess that buy 2 get one deal is valid for all 49.99 games....

10-27-2003, 01:56 AM
i was set to do this deal, but in the end to many things didn't add up and my fragile mind was left befuddled. If they can't set up a sale better than this then they're pathetic.

Folks, read this description (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/feature/-/507675/ref=amb_bl_26239/104-7798298-8030336) to understand that it's any game listed as $49.99 except for pre-orders. As of Tuesday, Rainbow Six will be availible, as well as THUG, SWAT, kill.switch, Top Spin, Rogue Ops, Amped 2, Hunter 2 and Gladius. If you want Crimson, add it to your cart along with the other games you want and then put in BUY2XBXFR499 as the promotional code and it'll put the discount into effect.

A game called Gladiator should be available then too. That game should be pretty good. The demo at E3 was insane with blood.

Didn't see it on their site, but I don't go by their release dates, I stick with EBgames.

http://ebgames.com/ebx/product/225491.asp

And everyone else is shipping it on Tuesday, so I don't see why they wouldn't.

ScottTheKilla
10-27-2003, 12:39 PM
I can think of a reason why they wouldnt...its Toys R US lol

My local store didnt have tons of new games yet and rainbow six wasnt even available for preorder. Oh well..

Well, I'am getting Crimson Skies, Rainbow Six 3, and maybe Freedom Fighters or Kill.switch as my third game. This deal sounds great though. I already took advantage over the gamecube deal, and now to take advantage of the ps2 and xbox deals.

are you guys f@ckin' idiots? Add ANY 3 games you want to your shopping cart and paste BUY2XBXFR499 into the "Redeem Coupon" field during checkout. Magically you will get one game free. Instead of acting like a bunch of 10 year olds, read the posts and checkout amazon.com. Its as clear as day on their site.
