At wall mart, you get War of Cyberteon when you get Fall of Cybertron.

I think it's a download code.

I think that Newegg has tons of Enslaved copies. Seems that every time I look at these deals, their trying to move them for just $10 and their still not selling. I should pick up a copy. Heard it's quite good.

I went into a microsoft store the other day and had no luck finding a DR2: Off the Record, same when going into multiple gamestops. Hard game to track down facepalm however is was cool to see games like Crackdown as low as $3 used, and Lego Indiana Jones at $4 used, might pick these up to complete them smile

Enslaved is a STEAL for $9.99!!! If you haven't played it yet, I highly recommend it!

I'm sure the physical stores are YMMV at each store, but I always pull the prices from the on-line store since I know there are only a few physical MS stores out there.

Also, keep in mind, ANY order ships free from the MS store, as long as you don't mind waiting a few days to get your game.

I know Stallion83 seemed to like the Wireless Tritton's he got to test out... I've been looking to find those cheap...

TransparentDime said:Do you get the online pass when you buy used from Gamefly?This is the main reason I include GameFly used deals in the round-up. Every time I've ever bought a game using the Keep It option, they send you the case with all pack-ins included. So, yes, you'll get any codes or pack-in cards that come in the new sealed package.

From GameFly's FAQ page:

Do I need to buy an EA SPORTS Online Pass code separately if I buy an EA SPORTS game from GameFly?
You will not need to buy the Online Pass code when you purchase an EA SPORTS game from GameFly. All new and used GameFly purchases come with the game's original case, manuals and contents. The Online Pass code can be found on the back cover of the game's instruction manual.
