Have any of you been able to grab Odyssey from Shoppers Drug Mart? I went to 2 locations this morning on my way to work, 8-ish, and neither had it.

Yeah, I got my copy around 11:30 am, the lady told me that a bunch of people was asking about it. One guy bought 3 bags of chips and some robaxaset and said he's gaming all day.

Looks like there are still issues, but for anyone still waiting, give it a shot because registration is officially open.

I'm pretty sure all the Shopper's near me order in somewhere around 3 copies of new release games, I've never had any luck whatsoever with them sadly. Will probably just grab Odyssey from Bestbuy on my way home from work.

A bunch of 360 games are $2 at EB right now and most of them are backwards compatible with Xbox One. Halo 3 and the first Assassin's Creed are both on the list, and they are two of the games that will run in 4K on One X.

Can someone send me a PM about when I can post at the new place? It says I don't have sufficient privileges?

I think hell has frozen over. Amazon.ca didn't wait 3+ days after release before shipping me Assassin's Creed: Origins. I'll have it Tuesday/Wednesday which is a lot faster than I got South Park: TFBW

Nier Automata is $29.99 at Best Buy again. Sold out online but I just grabbed a copy at my local store.

Gonna’ keep posting here for shits and giggles. The last thing I need is yet another forum login.

Originally it said it was shipping Monday and I'd have it Nov 3-9, but then I got a shipping notice and I should have it Wednesday. Depending how much travel, if any, it got in today I could have it Monday/Tuesday. I'm shocked.

It is telling me that my email is banned by the administrator which is really strange - is that simply because it is gmail? Will no gmail accounts work?

Have to use an ISP email, free emails won’t work.

Is it worth picking up if I hated the first one and wasn't too impressed by the demo? How long is it?

I'd normally be all over that Nier deal, but I already have too many unopened games - self control, this time ;)

I realize this thread is dead now but is EB seriously not doing an Xbox One X trade-in promo? Like what the hell.

Only dead if you want it to be. But it's pretty stupid to not have a XBX trade-in but advertise the fuck out of a PSPro one.

Nevermind! There is one. It's not great, but better than nothing. Same one they had been running when pre-order opened.

Really? I thought it was in the BB flyer that you get $200 for trading towards an X.

My PC is super outdated and I want to get a new gaming PC. I know I’m a fool for not building one but I can’t be bothered to do it and I have no interest to.

In terms of built gaming PCs, this seems to be the best deal I’ve found. Can anyone who is knowleadgeable of parts let me know if they are good specs/decent value?

https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883102333

I'd recommend checking the specs/price of it with what's on Logical Increments:

For Canadian Switch owners Mario + Rabbid's Kingdom is currently marked down heavily to $29.99 from $79.99 - I wasn't able to find a copy at my local BestBuy so I price matched at Walmart and finally picked this up.

https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/mario-rabbids-kingdom-battle.aspx?searchRedirect=Mario+rabbids

Skyrim, Doom and Fire Emblem Warriors on the Switch also got a price cuts to $49.99 from $79.99. It looks like the sale ends today (Mar 8, 2018) so if you're looking you'd best act quickly.

Nintendo has dropped the price of the Switch from $399 to $379. EB Games is also having a deal where if you buy a Switch you get 50% off on one of the following games:

Super Mario Odyssey
Breath Of The Wild
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Splatoon 2

More can be found here. Might be a good time to jump onboard if you don't already have a Switch!

Just a heads up for anyone looking to get a PSVR, the PSVR Skyrim bundle is quietly on sale at EB Games $399.99 CAD, take this link over to BestBuy and show them and they'll beat the $399.99 by 10%. I priced matched today at Walmart where I originally picked up my Skyrim bundle, as BestBuy had none left locally and told me it'd be atleast 2 weeks for more to come in stock.

Pretty sure thats regular price, thats what I paid at EB Games a couple months back for the new gold headset. Its actually pretty decent, feels sturdy, definitely feels great with the PSVR, for comfort I put it at about a 7.5, after extended play times you start to feel abit hot under the headphones. Where as my Hyper Cloud II's are a 10 for comfort but also wired.
