There's a few gems I'd be interested in getting, but if the store locator is any indication, almost every single store in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area has already transferred out or sold all their Xbox games.

It is listed on their site under trade-in deals now. No online code listed. The 25XBOX code still works online for 25% off.

I'll have to take a look at the selection next time I go to GS. Too bad backward compatibility sucks for XBOX 360 (and I have no desire to pick up an original XBOX). Looks like most of the games on the compatibility list i'd be interested in have lots of glitching too.

My GS has done this so many times, it's not even worth it. One small GS store near me actually moved all the Xbox games to the back room in some large bins. You have to ask for them and then they bring out the bin.

I would love to take advantage of this, but my GS doesn't carry Xbox games, soooo I'm kinda out of luck. Good thing I already have a large library.

Gameboy *advance* games are 75% off? This I find hard to believe...

How do you remove a coupon? I'm trying to remove CAG16 - the website says you can - to use 25XBOX since it won't stack, but not having any luck. Help?

You would think that as much as they want to get rid of this stock they would eventually do a B1G1 sale on Xbox games.

I'm surprised they haven't all been put in black bags in the giant metal containers behind stores yet.

Meh...wake me up when it's B1G1. I won't start hitting this clearance in earnest until it's B1G2 or even 75% (85% with Edge) off at the very least.

SPLASH!

I went through about 150 GB/GBC games in one of those bags.

Anyway, does this stack with the 25% off?

Sadly, stores are supposed to destroy this stuff when it's time to clear them out. I was talking to the manager of my local GS and he said the company does better financially if they destroy items and take the tax deduction than sell those items at 75% off. :cry:

They used to do B1G1 for xbox games so you would think they would do it to get rid of stock.

Actually, that's how they kept the games, since they've been sitting under the counter in those bags since the GB/C games hit clearance. It is known that they destroyed the PS1 games remaining when they stopped clearancing them. Same will happen to all those Mary Kate and Ashley GBC games.

Same with movies at blockbuster =) No point to put 100 used copies for sale. Too cheap and you flood the market and don't make the money back, too expensive and you never sell them all. So we destroy them, and sometimes that really hurts when it's like Dark Knight :cry:

Most of the games they destroyed were craptastic games anyway, I doubt the employees would let them destroy Marios or Final Fantasy. So does anyone know with this B2G1 stacks with the current 25% of Xbox games?

yeaaaahhh! remember the gb/gbc sale? good times!

and i'd say the same. 75% off is when I start hunting stores.
