Apparently, if you go to the best buy website and you put Splinter Cell [The Xbox version ONLY] in your shopping cart it will say your total purchase is only 5 dollars instead 20. And after that if you put any other Platinum Hit titles into your cart they will also only cost 5 bucks! But you must put Splinter Cell in their first.
You don't have to put Splinter Cell first, you just have to put it in there. At first I thought it was just Splinter Cell, so I ordered two copies. Then I read a thread at another forum and said all PH if you have Splinter Cell, so I, uh, ordered 10 more games.
Chances are Best Buy will cancel all the orders, but hey, it's worth a shot.
Yeah its worth a shot because EA honored a lot of peoples orders when they messed up. Although, one guy from IGN boards went to pick up the games at best buy and the manager thought the prices didnt sound right and didnt let him take the games. I wish i had a credit card
On the second order I got:
- Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
- Conflict: Desert Storm
- Splinter Cell
- Ghost Recon
- Max Payne
- Hitman 2
- SegaGT Online (hey, it was listed)
- Dead to Rights
- Crash Bandicoot
- 007: Agent Under Fire
Not letting me Checkout..
- Max Payne
- Unreal Championship
- Splinter Cell (Obviously)
Best Buy can't cancel your order, they messed up. Here's what I ordered
3 Simpson's Road Rage
2 Splinter Cell
2 Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2
1 Unreal Championship
1 Ghost Recon
1 Mortal Kombat
All will sell quite well on eBay
My order, like many of yours probably, is on back order... it won't ship until 1-12-04.
I think I'm going to see if I can pick some of them up in-store tomorrow if it's still... uh... "broken".
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
Pac-Man World 2
Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
Dead to Rights
Spider-Man: The Movie
all are backordered though, i hope this goes thru
dead to rights
agent under fire
Damn, they took it off their site, haha.
Got this from SlickDeals.net about the $5 Plat hits-Originally Posted by Phantagram

They said they were so backed up that is why your account may not show the transaction yet online. Fear not, they will eventually eamil a confirmation to everyone!
It only worked for the XBox version, and sadly I have no XBox.
this deal also works with Prince of Persia (then you add Splinter Cell for PS2/GC) and your platinum hits will be $5
not as good of a deal (PoP is 50$) but still works
your orders wont get honoured
Just a heads up.
