I just ordered Forza 5, Dead Rising 3 and Xbox one at bestbuy. I have to pick it up tomorrow at bestbuy. I paid Dead Rising 3 $31.99, Forza 5 $31.99, Xbox One $499.99. My total was $596.91 including 6% Tax. Not bad deal.

That GCU program is pretty awesome. That, combined with my Elite Plus rewards are what is keeping me from going all digital. Why pay $60 for digital games with no Rewards when I can pay less than $48 (or less if there is a price reduction/sale) and also get points I can spend on anything at Best Buy?

yup, I have GCU until November 2015 and only paid $30 for it. lol I think I already saved around $100 with all the trade in bonus and discount on new games. I also have Elite Plus so I get 25% extra reward points. Looks like I will be getting most of nextgen games from Bestbuy. Now I can play all the Exclusive games on PS4 and X1.

You got all three of those games for $31.99 each or total? What is GCU?

GCU is Gamer's Club Unlocked. It is essentially the Best Buy version of the Gamestop Edge program.

It used to cost $15 a year for the magazine (which is pretty terrible but comes with some occasionally useful coupons). It now costs over $100, but they changed the benefits. You get 20% off all new games. Plus you get other benefits too, such as double points.

That's dope, I don't understand why they don't advertise for it more. GameStop is not a nice place.

I only got dr 3 and forza 5 for $31.99 each. I'll get ryse when its $20 or less. Gcu membership cost $120 for 2 years, but bestbuy send me email coupon so I paid $30 for 2 years.

Please, UK retailers, please take note.
