Any info on Dell Deal for NCAA 12?

Submitted by MichTits on June 27th, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Does anybody have any information on the deal that was offered last year on for pre-ordering NCAA Football 12?  Is this something that they do every year, and does anyone know if they are planning to do it again this year?  I took advantage of pre-ordering through last year and got the game for $39.99 instead of $59.99.  The only drawback was that I didn't recieve the game in the mail until a week after it was released, but that was okay with me.  I wanna pre-order it again, but was kinda waiting to see if they'd do the deal again.  As of today, the Dell website says the pre-order is not available yet.

Does anybody have any more info on this?

I know nothing about a pre-order through Dell but I'll be at my local Gamestop on midnight of the 12th to pick mine up, already put $5 on it. That's the best way to do it even if you don't get it at midnight IMO.

I have taken advantage of these deals many times and there is no rhyme or reason to them, basically just that if they feel like they can drum up enough business by running a deal then they will. 

Your best bet is to just keep an eye out for a preorder deal on here and/or vist forums that list video game deals.

I doubt I'll even get it. I've gotten '09, '10, and '11 now. While each does have a few improvements I wouldn't say its worth $60. I haven't read much about it though, the only way that I would is if they greatly changed dynasty mode, which I doubt they did.

Every year the game comes out I start checking this forum a few weeks before the release date.

I've purchased '07 all the way through '11, but I don't know if I'll get it this year. It always bothers me how they ignore the most obvious issues year after year, when a simple fix could drastically improve the game. Things like, I don't know, adding fight songs that don't play with a <20 kbps bit rate.

I usually wait 2 weeks or so because I don't like playing without decent rosters and I don't to take the time again to create them myself (done that too many times!). 

So I'd also go for this type of preorder if someone finds one.

I declined a job with them, but my buddy who met in college just lucked into the job. He knows that i love MICHIGAN and DETROIT and he just sends me NCAA, Madden, NHL,..etc on both platforms. My buddy just accepted the job, but did not really want it....i found a better situation for me. I did not even know that you could get free games, but he sends me all kinds. I asked him if the makers of EA if they could stop the players from walking through the Refs and i could add more detail to MICHIGAN!!

all those yesterdays
