This past Tuesday, I stopped in at the local Coconuts (Toms River, NJ), and they had some games marked with Sale tags. One that caught my eye was Baten Kaitos Origins (yeah, the newer one) for only $9.99 (usually $39.99).

I'm not sure how Coconuts stores work, so I don't know if this is a chain-wide sale price or if it's just for this location. Figured I'd let people know, just in case it's on sale at other Coconuts stores as well.

FYI, True Swing Golf was $9.99 as well.

too bad the gamecube selection at local FYE store is so bare that I dont think I will be able to find it.

It's a music/movies/games store owned by Trans World Entertainment. Some of their other stores that you may have heard of include FYE, Wherehouse, Suncoast, and Sam Goody.

I wonder if this is YMMV?

I would definitely get this game for $10. It's the last GC game I want besides a few Mario titles (Strikers, Baseball, and Party 6).

They own Best Buy too, right?

It'd be great if we could confirm if this is YMMV or not. I want this game bad. I'll check Sam Goody just to see.

Hit the local Coconuts and found one copy of BK:O... sure enough, $9.99

Picked that up and the non-anniversary edition of Pink Floyd's The Wall on DVD for $6.99 (regular $14.99, the 25th Anniversary edition is $24.99)

It was tagged with a sale sticker at $9.99... it also rang up that way. The Pink Floyd DVD I bought rang up with the $14.99 price, but was tagged at $6.99

Gonna check my local FYE and see if it's $10.

I was planning to go because the scutlebut is that you can get 4 Funimation titles for $20. Select titles (ie older.) Was gonna check that out too.

Transworld Entertainment is in the process of turning over all their various storebrands into FYE. They are a different company then the one that owned Sam Goody / Suncoast (Whom I think went completely out of business now) and they don't own Best Buy either.

Wow, glad to hear it seems to be $9.99 everywhere. :)

If they still have a copy next time I pass by, I'll pick it up for someone here. There was only one left after I bought mine, though.

Got the last one at my loacl FYE. Unfortunately, no Funimation deal. Guess it's not in our region yet. They're still doing the $10 off Geon Disks $25 and over.

Checked two FYEs in my area. Their GameCube section was non-existent. Each store just had a small shelf with some used games.

Score.

Bought the only 9.99 copy of Baten Kaitos: Origins they had.

Noticed they severly reduced the PSP rackage - mostly the UMD movies were gone. Only a handful now....

I saw that too. But for a game I think should have been released at $20, I can't buy it on sale when everything within me says I should be able to buy it at BB for $15 with GGC. Blah...

I got the only copy of BK:O at my FYE. Sorry, no extras. Thanks for the heads up, OP. I had resigned myself to never getting this game when it became the last GCN release (essentially). I thought they would remain at regular price until the last of the few even produced was sold at $40.

Scored the last copy of BK: Origins for $9.99 in my Jefferson Valley Mall FYE in NY.

The Nintendo Section was horribly small.. the PS2/PS3 and XBOX sections had a fairly big selection.

Thanks guys!
