For anyone who is able to locate at their local store a new Gears of War 3 Epic edition, they've been marked down to $49.99.

My hunny's store had zero in stock, but another store had three. He had them send one over for me. Picked it up this afternoon. Still unopened. He said it's possible they could drop in price further, but I wasn't risking it. I wanted my Marcus statue. :bouncy:

They've been at this price for a few months now. Trick is finding one. I got one at this price about a month ago.

My store has about 4 left, willing to wait for the price to go down even further.

Yeah, I think so. I remember looking at it on CAG and thinking if I should go out and grab one.

I don't even have an xbox and i'm thinking of getting it just for that nice statue. hmmm:-k. If I could get around $15 from the game that will be even better.

I would bite at $30. Its a great price already, but I already own the game, so I can't justify it as much, and the actual game has little resale value anymore.

Its been like this for awhile now. i got one last month. The trick to this deal is finding a good condition box. I went through 18 stores and boxes to find one that was in what i would consider presentable shape. If the price drops or you wait to long you may never find one.

My store has had one sitting on the floor next to some Killzone 3 Helghast Editions in the middle of the store for months now. It wont sell at even $50.

Picked this up for $50 not too long ago from my GS. They only had 2 boxes at the time; one of them massively beat up, the other one in fairly new condition.

I suggest if you want one that is still in decent condition (as far as the outside box goes) and don't/can't wait for another possible price drop get it now.

Not sure if they will hit $30. I assume they will be scrapped and marked as used before they hit $30.

But who knows I could be wrong.

Gears of War: Judgment has no CE for the US so I'm wondering if we're going to have to wait even longer for this to convert to used. Last month, I would have guessed GS would have converted this to used by the time Judgment released but I'm not so sure anymore. I've noticed stores have slowly been getting rid of their remaining stock but there's still a good amount out there.

The day that the stock locator won't work is when you'll know it's been converted to used. The EE was mass produced but the statue is pretty cool so I'm just waiting for it to get converted to used. If GoW: Judgment sucks I'll pick up Gears 3 again. It's been 1 1/2 years now since Gears 3 so this CE has been taking it's sweet time from converting.

What does it mean when it is converted to used?

They take out all the contents gut the game and sell the game at the used price. More often then not they toss all the extra contents out or the manager will let the employees take them home.

It's Gamestop's way of getting rid of extra space that new games take up especially collector editions. They will change the price of the game to whatever the used price is at the time. So if Gamestop converted the EE to used today, you could buy the collector's edition for $14.99 (price of Gears 3 pre-owned currently).

The downside is that employees are instructed from corporate to break apart the collector edition (throw away the boxes, statues, DLC's, etc.) and sell just the game with it's case as a pre-owned copy.

Some stores aren't good with reading their emails or don't care what the corporate email says and will just keep the collector edition intact and sell it to you as brand new but you only pay the pre-owned price. The SKU for the brand new version is deleted and removed from their system.

Thank you muchly! I've combined the threads as I did such a fail job in searching.

I got one, I traded the game from a previously purchase. I kinda hope it doesn't go down in price, too late to return and get it cheaper

You mean the employees? I've heard of it from a few threads here on CAG. I know one of my friends when we were in college worked there and his manager let him get all the stuff that was supposed to be tossed. Needless to say my buddy wasn't a guide guy and my collection of guides is mostly due to him. :D

Yeah I get that stuff all the time as well. I have guides and other stuff I'll probably toss in due time. even have some sealed CE guides that I'm never going to do stuff with.

I'm not as much a collector as I used to be *sigh*
