Ha! I'm with you on that! Can't deal with buying more games right now, but I can always spare $5 for a brand new game no matter how crappy it may be.

Me... five smile. I'm quite content with everything I have now.. I MIGHT pick up Mass Effect 3, but I'm squeezing last drop of life out of all the games I got, so meh.

Looking forward to great Kinect deals since I finally have a Kinect now. What I find interesting about Kinect games is that the price start lower than regular 360 title games, but they barely drop in price as there are maybe 1-2 crappy $20 games, the rest seem to stay above $30. Would love to see more price drops.

IMPORTANT: I went to Gamestop and you can only get either Pictionary OR Marvel with the UDraw for $9.99, the second game will ring $29.99...

Or by Clicking 'GameStop' in the article.

The ad says '$9.99 EACH' which leads you to believe you could buy both of them in the same transaction for $9.99 each.

Although I wouldn't doubt they didn't know, I had to take a printed out ad to my local store after they told me on the phone that deal was off. They ended up being out of 360 tablets so it didn't matter anyway.

Seems like the wording in the ad is incorrect if only one with the bundle is $10
