June 17, 2009 // 6:40 am - Update: It looks like this deal is only going to be running in Canada, but hopefully Best Buy will run a similar deal in the United States.

Word is that one of the biggest electronic retail stores will be selling inFAMOUS at a reduced price of $29.99 for a short period of time real soon... to quote:

Well, I have received word that Best Buy will be selling it for only $29.99 June 30 to July 2, so if you have not picked up your copy yet, I would wait until then to get it half off.

A scan of the full advertisement page is below.

as for you us guys and gals. buying it online and having it shipped will end up costing u as much or more then going to your local store. after border taxes, import taxes and and brokerage if they ship ups.

They won't match liquidation/store closing prices but they will match sale prices, at least in in my experience.

I've gone to Future Shop asking for them to match a Best Buy sale price (and vice-versa) and haven't been turned away yet. Mind you I've only done it a handful of times so its not foolproof, especially given that policy can vary from store to store.

Here's the official policy:
Our Lowest Price Guarantee

Get it for less. Guaranteed™.
We will beat any advertised price by 10% of the difference.

3 great reasons to buy at Future Shop.

1) If you find a lower advertised price we will beat it by 10% of the difference.
2) If you find a lower advertised price within 30 days* of your purchase we
will beat it by 10% of the difference.
3) If our own price is reduced within 30 days* of your purchase, bring in your
receipt and we will refund the difference.

* 14 days for computers, laptops, monitors, printers, camcorders, digital cameras, portable DVD players, radar detectors, projectors and air conditioners.

Here’s how it works.
If you are purchasing today:

* Present us with a copy of the competitor’s current ad.
* Our associates will verify that the item is in stock and available for
immediate sale and delivery at the advertised price.
* We will beat the competitor’s price by 10% of the difference.
* If you purchase the item from futureshop.ca and there is no Future Shop in your area you can contact us at 1-800-663-2275 or by email

They don't typically check for availability but if they're really stingy they can. At any rate, it doesn't hurt to try so good luck.

Sorry there's also this from their price matching policy:
Our lowest price guarantee does not apply to advertising errors or misprints, special educational prices, restricted offers, mail order offers, rebates, coupons, premiums, free or bonus offers, OEM products, limited or minimum quantity or limited time offers, close-outs, liquidations, clearances, financing or other special offers.

So depending on who you get (and what mood they're in) they could price match it for you but they can also get technical and choose not to. For the most part, I've never had any trouble when I bring in the flyer myself (vs them having to pull it up online).

US people, just check Craigslist in about oh a month (or sooner) and you'll see all the kids that didn't care for the game. Listing it at some $30 (tax free and local to you).

Damn from the title it looked like they were infamous for selling PS3's at 29.99.

Thanks for the heads up.

Doesnt Best Buy ship to the states??? But I guess shipping will kill the savings.. bestbuy.ca
