Actually that's a really good deal. I did a bunch of looking around and that's one of the lowest prices around.

defrule, the only person wasting my time in this thread is you. Please don't make me delete another inflammatory post.

GameStop/EBGames has any GW chapter for 30% off.

Since we're sharing sales. :)

While 24.99 is a good offer in comparison to the in-game store. Play.com offer it for 17.99 saying you a further 7 quid.

Also, while $25 is a really good deal I decided to go with the online Guild Wars / PlayNC store. My wife wanted her own account and we bought Nightfall for $49 and got the Prophecies GOTY for $39 and all instant access with no shipping fees or waiting. I liked that. Plus Amazon, GameStop, etc GuildWars special edition was expensive (even though it probably includes the auras).

Play.com is a UK store (http://play.com/Games/PC/4-/3250180/Guild_Wars_Nightfall/Product.html).



Guild Wars: Nightfall
our price: 17.99 Delivered


$24.99 USD = 12.77 GBP
(1 GBP = 1.95760 USD - http://www.xe.com/ucc/)

17.99 is certainly not a savings over 12.77.

CompUsa has a deal where if you pay 49.99 for Nightfall you get Factions or Prophecies free!

Seems like a better deal than BB's. But I really wish that people would at least elaborate on these "deals". Deals are never long-lasting. So...

Best Buy's $25 pricetag lasts from Dec 22 to 24. This is a limited time deal and is there for the last-minute shoppers out there. If you just wanted Nightfall, this is your best chance to snatch it up now.

CompUSA's $50 Nightfall + Prophecies/Factions offer lasts for TWO DAYS for Friday and Saturday ONLY (meaning, Sunday = dead deal).

If you have to choose between one or the other, choose NOW. This is a good chance to snatch up one or two titles for $25 each no matter which ones you get.

For the Scrooge in many of us, it may be worthwhile to try to get Circuit City or Best Buy to pricematch these offers. Using their PM policy may also benefit you in the end if you happen to get a Gift Card from friends or co-workers. (For some oddball reason, I got $30 BB GC in the mail... still baffles me.)

The OP never made it clear what currency it was, so it was all unclear.

I'm pretty sure the OP meant USD. I've seen the $24.99 deals at a lot of American Stores.

Must be nice. I was in Future Shop yesterday and Nightfall was $49.99, and the Factions Collector's Edition was $69.99. Didn't see the Nightfall Collector's, which was what I was interested in.

So instead I bought a laptop.

Is factions anywhere for 25 bucks? I might pick that up if it's worth it.
I'd like to put it on christmas list, but I've found doing that means certain people wait till last minute, go there, can't find it, and say sorry when asked about it later on.
Or even better, go there after sale is over, see sale is over, don't get it, and then when asked about why it item wasn't gotten, am told it wasn't really on sale.

Anyway... enough holiday gripeing. I'll go find it and hopefully it'll be there.
EB games you say? No ebgames up here, just gameshlock.

I still like the PlayNC deal with buy one key at full price you get the second for $39. The $25 - $30 deals don't last long. Amazon seems to have Prophecies at $35 full time, but it's not the GOTY edition. PlayNC has the GOTY edition or the upgrade for $5.

being from england we would naturally assume that it was in pounds if the currency isn't specified. is there something wrong with that?

I believe the point of the post you quoted was pointing out that by specifying the store, the OP was, in a fashion, specifying the currency (given that Best Buy only operates stores in the U.S.).

most of us have never heard of best buy, including me, so it's not really specified

Best Buy Online also has free shipping right now, I assume in the US. My order comes to $26.49 USD. I had the option of picking it up in the store today, but two days before Christmas I am not going anywhere near BestBuy!
Thanks to SyphonSphere for the information and saving me $25!:grin:

Operation Scrooge is a complete success! :grin: :grin:

My local CompUSA and Best Buy aren't close to each other so I wasn't able to run by CompUSA and pick up a printed ad. But I did print out their ad from their website and brought it over to BB to see if I can get it pricematched. I waited and waited and I was afraid they're going to spew out some BS of how they cannot pricematch because of some weird difference in the flux capacitor. So the lady at the checkout called up a CompUSA, asked if they got it in stock and about their offer, and I was able to snag Nightfall and Prophecies for US$49.99. But wait, I have the mystery $30 gift card that strangely arrived in the mail from bestbuy.com! So I gave her that, had it reduced further. I paid US$22.50 in the end for two games... and the Prophecies copy I got is GOTY Edition~ :sunny:

Surprisingly, GAME haven't reduced their price yet. It released at 29.99 and is still 29.99. (Sterling pounds that is)

Today I picked up 2 copys of nightfall. One for me and One for a gift. total price of 32.08. You get an extra $20 off if you buy any two guildwars game. Great game so far.
