Buy Dual Shock 3, get Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. Go Canada

Ars Technica writes:

"After chatting with Ben about Gran Turismo 5 Prologue before the full review goes live, I found myself leaning away from the purchase. However, a deal currently running at Best Buy stores in Canada made the game impossible for me to resist. The electronics mega-chain currently has a promotion that nets you a free copy of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue with the purchase of a Dual Shock 3."

If it is true, why can't the U.S. have a deal like that?

Because Americans have everything else cheaper... Would you rather save $40 on this or thousands of dollars on a car?

...looks like i gotta take back my copy and buy this one.

"looks like i gotta take back my copy and buy this one."

Precisely what I did yesterday...Too bad for EB Games that they don't price-match.

I did a double-take when I saw the flyer yesterday morning, and zoomed for BB's online ordering...admittedly, I would've passed up on a DualShock...but $20 was too good to pass up (for ANY wireless controller.)

Gotta admit and eat my words of passed postings by admitting that Prologue is funner with some vibration happening.

Now if only I could learn to stop constantly driving on the rumble strips. ;)

I bought a new car (Honda Civic 2008) and after taxes I felt raped. the US gets better deals on games (and everything else) than us Canucks. for example our PS2 greatest hits still cost us $29.99 when it should be $19.99 and our PSN titles are always more expensive. the last I checked MGS 4 is going to cost $69.99 for the regular edition but they may lower it when it comes close to release.

Someone needs to upload a scan of this sales ad from Canada. I know Best Buy match ad prices, but I don't know if they do it from other countries. I guess you could give it a shot if it works report back ASAP before they can the deal. You never know you might get a dumb employee and they'll wont even notice it's a Canadian Best Buy ad.

Are you serious? How can they do that?

DomUltra3835d ago

Canada always gets the short end of the stick, thank god we get the deal this time.

Xlll3835d ago

yeah no kidding finally

I got GT5 Prologue already.
I don't have the DS3 but the game is so radical with or with out the rumble function.
If my controller breaks I'll buy the DS3 but until that happens I don't desperately need this controller at this point in time.

DomUltra3834d ago (Edited 3834d ago )

You get two awesome things, for a price of 54.99... Seriously dude if I didn't already have a DS3 be getting GT5P from a buddy, I'd be on this like white on rice. Anyway I see your point, but just re-sell it perhaps? Your not losing any money.

WOW! great deal, i am thinking of getting a DS3 for GTA 4 anyway, this is a bonus.
