Amazon PS3 Gold Box Event Today

Deals, deals, deals. Amazon.com has 'em, and these will especially appeal to all you PlayStation 3 owners out there.

Today is Amazon's PS3 Gold Box event, and you've got until midnight Pacific Time to snag any number of games and accessories at discounted prices. First on the list is the nifty PlayStation Eye, and you'll want to examine those Lightning Deals on the right there. Supplies are limited; the deals will only last until either time expires or the item is sold out, so keep checking back! What's on tap for the day? Well, check out hints, and see if you can figure it out for yourselves:

6AM PST | 9AM EST: "Performance enhancing drugs are encouraged."

9AM PST | 12PM EST: "Much better than the most recent movie."

12PM PST | 3PM EST: "Guest starring the Dark Side."

3PM PST | 6PM EST: "Hit it up the fairway."

6PM PST | 9PM EST: "Get connected in hi-def."

We imagine you've got some good guesses on these, as do we. The first is clearly Haze, although we suggest passing on that one. It most certainly didn't live up to expectations. But as for the rest, they could be great deals for worthwhile titles, so make sure to take advantage of this pre-holiday bargain. We'll keep you updated with sales as the months go on, too; we know that with all the amazing games hitting at one time, your wallets are hurting. ;)

so far I was right. as I tried to say, it wouldn't let me edit and put in lego indy jones instead of blitz2 (misread the gold box details this morning)

Or

Could be Blitz II instead of Haze because in Blitz II the teams encourage the players to use 'roids.

Lego Indiana Jones -- Better than the Crystal Skull

The Force Unleashed

Maybe Hot Shots Golf Instead of Tiger

HDMI Cable

I might have actually thought about getting Haze if it was for only $15. But I suppose I don't even get to think about it since the deal is over :]
The only thing I'm interested in now is the HDMI cable.

lol come on people. It's not Force Unleashed. That wouldn't be guest starring the dark side. That would be starring the dark side. It's obviously Soul Caliber 4. It's tied with Haze as the most obvious up there.

LMAO at the last item - component cables for $20.

$20 isn't very much of a deal for component cables and why use component cables when you can get HDMI cables? I got mine off Amazon for like $10 with shipping. :\

Yeah, exactly. When it comes to HDMI, it's just one signal (on or off) and any extra wire shielding on crazy thick cables doesn't mean anything.

I think I got mine for $10, too. LOL

The cable ended up being nothing I needed. And even if I did need it, I doubt I would pay $20 for it. I actually needed an HDMI to DVI cable to hook my PS3 to my Monitor (720P w00t) since my TV is crap. Just got it off eBay for $6 :]

That bites I missed out on Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds for $20. I would have loved to picked that one up for so cheap.

LEGO Indy would've been worthwhile if anybody snagged it for the price offered. It's pretty fun.

But Hot Shots is SUPER fun. I'll annihilate anyone who wants to play me... ;)

WOW 20 bucks for Hot Shots!!?? Too bad I payed the full price when it was released, but it was worth it anyways. It's probably the only game I would ever put well over 50 hours into that is not an RPG, haha.

@ Ben, I'll take you on that offer... you better be using advanced mode tho haha, traditional is for newbs!
