The lowest prices on video games and accessories any hardcore gamer may want or need this holiday season. Game suggestions, the coolest collector editions, inexpensive accessories and pre-order gift ideas. Save money on video games this holiday season.
2010 Hardcore Gamer Holiday buyer's guide
I am a hardcore gamer. So I have put together a list of things that I would gladly accept or give away as a holiday gifts. Starting with some of my favorite games from this year. Also some games I haven't played, but my friends can't seem to stop talking about. You're going to find some of the best gift ideas below for somebody you know is a serious gamer. Just do a little research first and make sure they haven't played the games already.
Every gamer needs accessories, I could probably use a new controller. Mine makes funny noises in two different places. My wireless headsets are losing their charge times because I use them so much. If you don't have HDMI cables I got you covered. Also if you have a PS3, you know the controller charge cable is real short and you can get a universal USB extension cable that will work with your PS3 and Xbox 360. Perfect for keyboard extensions and stuuuuuf.
For the serious gamer that wanted the collector's edition, but didn't get it, I have a few suggestions there as well. You can always sell or trade-in that extra copy of the game. I just want the DLC, statues, booklets, soundtracks and goodies found in some collector's edition.
It's time to save money this holiday season and I hope my guide below saves you some money and time. Most of the options come with free shipping and that's great for the holidays, just make sure you don't wait until the last minute to order online. If there's something you think I missed or just want to make a suggestion, please leave a comment below. Thank you for reading. Now go start saving money!Read full story...

Don't pay full price for Xbox Live Jimmy. Updated 11/14/2010. New lower prices!
The price of Xbox LIVE Gold membership as of November 1, 2010. $59.99.
Save money right now. The sites below could save you $20 or more on your membership. The prices go up and down all of the time, so bookmark this page.
Rule #1: Turn off your Xbox Live Auto-renew.
Rule #2: Xbox LIVE cards will stack on top of each other and you can add on time whenever you like.
Rule #3: Get Xbox Live on sale and with free shipping to save big money.
Xbox LIVE is best known for allowing you to play games online with your friends. Like Bulletstorm and Marvel VS Capcom 3.
In 2010, Xbox LIVE is added new Gold features, including ESPN 3 and Video Kinect, with Hulu Plus coming on Xbox LIVE in 2011. All stuff real hard core gamers don't need. I just want to play Halo Wars with my Xbox, not watch Around the Horn again. Kinect is lol. So if you're like me and like to save money on your video games, I have a couple of different options for you to save on your Xbox LIVE 12 month Gold subscription card.
Xbox LIVE 12 month Gold subscription card. Don't be a Jimmy. MSRP $59.99Read full story...
A brief discussion on the recent price drops and what it means for us, the gamers.
Price cuts, I love price cuts!
Recently Sony announced the new PS3 slim model priced at $299. A few weeks later Microsoft reduced the price of the XBox 360 elite to $299 as well. Both represent a $100 cut off their earlier prices. So who wins this round?
For Sony, a price cut was long overdue. They had third party game developers screaming for it and threatening to stop publishing PS3 games. Now the PS3 slim represents a great value, including a Blu-Ray player and internet browser with their game system which comes fully equipped with Wi-Fi built in. The new unit does not, however, include backwards compatibility with PS2 games. This is a bit of a problem due to the lack of quality exclusive titles for the system (I count about 4).
Microsoft, on the other hand, already had a $299 system, and this "price cut" really represents nothing more than a minor hardware upgrade (from a 60GB hard drive to 120GB). The 360 runs off of standard DVDs, but has Netflix streaming to back that up. It also has backwards compatibility but doesn't really need it. The elite unit still does not have Wi-Fi built in and Microsoft wants an absurd $99 (MSRP) for the add on. This is dumb considering you have to pay a subscription for XBox live and the online features of the system are what really keeps it ahead of the PS3 in my opinion.
Wouldn't it be great if Sony and Microsoft would exchange strategies on these units? Microsoft would pack in Wi-Fi and ditch backwards compatibility, whereas Sony would cut out the Wi-Fi chip and replace it with the PS2's emotion engine for full compatibility. What a wonderful world that would be, playing to both systems strengths. (The 360's online system and Sony's huge back catalog.) Oh well, it was a thought.
I'd have to say, that if you don't own either system, the PS3 represents a better value right now. The problem for me is that I already own a 360 and there's no reason to play a game available for both systems on the PS3, whereas on the 360 I get achievements. For most people, I think the choice will come down to "what system do most of your friends have?", for the simple reason of wanting to play online with them.
Let's hear your thoughts on these price cuts in the comments you bucnh of Jimmys!
