I made all that up...but all of you know that that is how it is going to go down.
I knew it was fake since the kid didn't say 'What's PC gaming?'

I bought SOCOM 4 and Portal 2 for the PS3, I got $40 in credit which is more or less $10 away from a new game.
Why on earth would you play portal 2 on a ps3
Your getting crappier graphics and without qicksave you will waste time replaying if you misstep ... Also how do you plan to be able to rapidly aim your gun with a thumbstick to fire off a portal on a remote platform when you are flying out of another portal?

People who play portal 2 on ps3 must be some sort of masochists ...

I made all that up...but all of you know that that is how it is going to go down.
At first I read OP and thought "that ain't going to get them out of their troubles..."

But then I had a thought and it's just as DannyM said. I bet the idea is to get people (mainly kids) to buy accessories to go with the games. Heck they'll probably push extended warranties on the games to saying they'll replace it if it gets scratched.

The game section is sort of a dead spot now. People just go through and browse. They might pick up a game but most of the time not. Possibly because they're not sure they're interested in it? Having a dedicated sales rep there will not only get people hyped up about a game, but also push sales into the accessories and what not to "improve their experience".

Fry's have people dedicated to the game section, do they not?

I don't like buying games for more the $20. I'm always turned off when I go to browse the games and they're all $40-60. I understand they have sales on them on release day but that's still $30 and not only that... I never have the money on that day or the time to go buy them.

If you buy the PS3 copy, you get the PC copy for free, 2 copies of the game for $10 more. You can also co-op play between the two, if you had a friend play on PS3 and you play on PC at the same time.

Oh yeah, my first post!

And what is CC?
Yes. Having to argue with managers and customer service girls at Best Buy is insanely common. Unless you're lucky and one of the few good Geek Squad folks steps out and tells customer service how to do their job, you're boned.

And CC was Circuit City.

heck, read ALL reviews. The other ones are hilarious, those can't be from real people, and if they are, I feel sorry for them.

I recently purchased a 19" Dynex TV and I needed a cable to hook up my dvd player. At first I was a little concerened about using such a cheap cable on my brand new dynex TV. The TV was $160, and I was worried that "you get what you pay for" was going to get me on this cable since of the low low price. I was wrong. It was the best $1600 I have ever spent on a cable. This cable works great, and I left the store feeling like I got a good deal. If you dont have the money to buy a 50" and this cable then I suggest that you do what I did, get a smaller TV.
What's great about it: Price
$1600 cable, for 19" $160 TV?

I spent $1500 on my 47" TV and $20 on an HDMI cable, and I splurged on my cable! LOL

I just ran out barefeet in my pajamas to get this. I guarantee you, this is something not to pass up. I actually met another reviewer in a portal in the actual game Portal 2. We had a good time trolling these 2 guys ig.

I remember seeing a post here in reference to an ethernet cable that was ridiculous, like 1k for a few feet...I wish I could find it, it was like hundreds of epic reviews just like that talking about random things like internet so fast, it was responding before you would even do anything. I was laughing for a good hour reading them.
