I will repeat.
I is my strong holding Best Buy does NOT determine which, if any, games get on the $10 list. I do believe that it is the developers and or distributors that make the choice for Best Buy and the discount in part or whole coming out of the pocket of the distributor/developer.
The reality of business. If your game is going to sell and people are going to go crazy doing pre-orders at regular price why would you offer to sell it for less?
IF you want to do something about it then don't pre-order a game. Wait several months until the price lowers because of flagging sales.
20% off a a title is still a GREAT deal.

Chachzilla, while I never expected Horizon Zero Dawn or Breath of the Wild to be added to the list (as PS4 and Nintendo exclusives have never made the list before), I too am BUMMED to see that games such as For Honor, Mass Effect Andromeda, Prey, etc. didn't make the cut.
Like you I plan to play Breath of the Wild first and then move on to Horizon and Mass Effect. I'm also hoping by the time I finish BotW that both games will have received a sizeable price drop.
Still what a shame. This was such a great promotion and like you it pushed me to pre-order tons of games that I never would have pre-ordered otherwise.

So what is the BEST DEAL around if there is no $10 pre-order bonus?
Mass Effect Andromedia for PS4
Best Buy $47.99 Included Free items DD add on. SteelBook
Amazon $47.99 Included Free items DD add on
GameStop $59.99 Unless it is a PowerUp Rewards item, which it does not say it is.

My GCU expires in a few months and I will only renew it if they continue this promotion because the reality of the matter is that I already have a Prime memebership so unless there is some added benefit to buying at Best Buy, I will not waste the $30 and will just migrate my gaming purchases to Amazon and Best Buy will only get my business every two or three years when I buy a new TV.

Dont know why the people still thinks amazon prime is better than GCU when is more expensive only have discounts for pre orders and after 2 weeks. No points or 2.5 points per dollar on elite plus status or special offers and it only costs $30 per 2 years
