Because Circuit City went out of business. They've got no reason to slash prices with no competition.

This.

Still, disappointing that there's really nothing on here that hasn't been available more cheaply elsewhere.

It is the sad truth. I knew BB was going to do this. CC may have been a terrible store, but they sure did keep BB's prices in check.

Does anyone else have a problem with BB's current ad campaign like I do? They are implying that their employees are knowledgeable about electronics....hahahahaha....and that you can go into a BB with no knowledge about a particular type of product, and expect to leave with exactly what you need......HAHAHAHAHAHA...

That is a great deal, as long as you don't have an Xbox instead.

Anyway, it is what it is.

Agreed. I would have bought it if it was for 360 as well.

I thought the $9.99 BB sale earlier this year was great. I hope they have another like it soon.

Gears 2 is solid at $30.

Want the DVD/CD ads.

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

I'm not at all saying that, in fact I picked that up myself.

I was agreeing that their weekly adds haven't featured the same kind of deals since CC went out of business. Not at all saying they don't still have good deals (the b2g1 DS sale obviously comes to mind).

True. Is Best Buy hurting at all right now? It seems like mine are getting lower on stock, ESPECIALLY CDs, they used to have about 7 sections and a backwall, now it's like 3 sections and no backwall....

I wonder if I can convince them to let go their last LE copy of GOW2 for the 29.99 price(gotta use the useless employees to your advantage) at my local BB. I give it a 5% chance of working, but youll occasionaly walk into that employee that just doesnt give a shit and will adjust for the ad.

People don't buy CDs anymore. My Best Buy is also fresh out of VHS tapes, LPs, and 8-Tracks.

Did Best Buy really used to have great deals on a regular basis? I remember the majority of weekly ads being almost all MSRP games, with a couple thrown in at $5 or $10 off, and a very occasional solid deal. Which is about how it is today.

That worked for me when BB was selling Fable 2 for $39.99; I picked up a copy of the Limited Edition for that. Discount of 50%; turned around and sold it online. Just be persistent about the pricing of the ad, if they say it's the LE, just go "Oh sorry." I tried one register initially, the guy shot me down, then went over to this girls' and she did the manual price override. Idiot.

I'm happy with the GOW2 deal. Might just bite on that.

The crappy economy will squeeze BB into giving us some decent deals at some point, Circuit City or no. Broke-ass consumers are a much tougher rival than a poorly run chain store.

I'll probably hold off on most new games while prices continue to fall.
