What can I say, I'm a sucker for early releases and GREAT deals. I was over at my local mom and pop shop to get rid of the Midnight Club: Los Angeles (IMO a hard ass racing game) and they gave me $30 credit for it. Knowing that they they get somehow get all of the upcoming titles for a week, the Friday before their street dates, I asked about FallOut 3. Apparently they got appx. 10 copies on Friday for the 360 and 10 for the PS3. Because 360 is such a kick ass system, those 360 copies were all sold out BUT they had it for the PS3. Seeing that I'm a repeat customer, they said that they'll apply the $30 to the purchase price and my balance would be $15.....$45 for a Ps3 version. With that I was sold, I would saving $20 is worth powering up the old dust collector....albeit with no trophy support...But I figure that I have a balance with Fable 2...oh well a gamer's gotta do what a gamer's gotta do

Yeah, at least you didn't get it for free.

That's cool that they gave you a $20 discount though. I always assumed that these retailers only had a $5-$10 markup. I guess it must be closer to $20.

Downloading = Get it for free. Right?
Or is it also available on the PSN?

I wouldn't know how to download or how to hack/customize consoles and firmware anyways!!!

As for the retailer....I guess it really does pay to be a good and repeat customer. Now only if they get Gears 2 then its on!
