Hopefully we'll be able to use gamestop.ca to find out what the games is everyday. Not that any of us have cash left anyway :P

An RFDer claiming to work at an EB is saying the first day is Tekken 6 for $34.99 and the second day is Castlevania Judgment for $9.86.

Well no offence, but so far those deals sound pretty crappy. Why would anyone pay $34.99 for Tekken 6 when @ Wal-Mart you can get DA:O and L4D2 for $39.99? If this is aimed at the hardcore fighter crowd, EB is late because all of those people probably payed full price for that game when it first came out.

Don't even get me started on Castlevania Judgement, I wouldn't buy that game even if THEY paid me $10.

How can you compare Tekken 6 to DA and L4D2? They're totally different games. Now if Tekken 6 had been $35 somewhere else recently then you'd have a case, but I don't recall it ever being that low.

I'm comparing them by popularity and game of the year contention. Tekken is only meant for hardcore fighter fans, and as I said, they likely already have it.
Most people reading this ad are not hardcore fighter fans, and their money is much better spent on DA:O and L4D2.
Also for their money, DA:O and L4D2 will have higher TIV and will be better for trade on Goozex than Tekken 6.
My main point is that stockings will want to be stuffed with games like L4D2 this year not Tekken, so if people can get L4D2 for $39, why would they go for Tekken 6?

Nice price for Tekken 6. Hope Borderlands goes on sale, I'd like to pick up a cheaper 360 copy.

No offence to me man, I just stole the post from RFD lol. And Lone is right, you can't really compare an RPG to an FPS to a fighting game. With the right gamer, Tekken 6 could provide more re-playability than both those games combined.

It was $50 with b2g1 at bb, so about the same If you could get 3 the same price.

really wish i hadn't traded for that one, though the nephews have played and played it.

"EB is late because all of those people probably payed full price for that game when it first came out."

I think that is the point on why that one is discounted so fast :). I think street fighter fell faster then other ones that came out at same time too.

Because they'd pay you the $10, but still charge you a certain amount such that you don't actually get any cash (since you're so specific about BUYING it).

...if they GAVE us $10 to take it from them, then thats a different story (;

I wonder what time they'd update their site/info??

Yeah, Tekken must not have done well at all seeing all these sales from various sources. I was tempted to get the game and Hori stick bundle from Amazon on BF, but shipping would have killed the deal (although I didn't have the foresight to see if I could have had it shipped to me directly, as it may have been cheaper).

saw? the games arent listed (12 days, what this thread is about)

also i'd take tekken if i had a 2nd controller, already have l4d2 on pc for $33, DA is not my thing... so i would be the person that sale is for

Gamestop.ca doesn't look very promising. I swear I saw Tekken 6 for around $40 today, and I'm almost certain I saw Need For Speed Shift for $45... prices on the site don't match up...

Ranzo is a EB manager. So he's maybe seen the full list already.

Castlevania might be ok if you can use a Kellogg coupon on it. But I'm still not sure if I want it even @ $5...

So call me an idiot, but I thought price changes and that kind of thing didn't happen on Sundays at EB, but the deal is starting on one?

Can't wait to see which games go on sale, now since this semester is over I'll actually have time to go out and buy them! Not gonna touch Castlevania though lol.

Guilty admission: The more people badmouth Castlevania, the more interested I am just to see how bad it actually is (ended up buying Alone in the Dark at $10 for the same reason). It's kind of like a love for terrible B-movies... but applied to games.

Has anyone trashing it actually played, or are you guys just going by popular opinion? If it's entertaining enough to kill 2 hours -- either through gameplay, or laughing at the lack of gameplay -- then I'd consider it worth trying.


Yeah, I see where you are coming from. I've never played Castlevania Judgment, I'm just going off of what every other person who has played it has said. I also don't see the point in playing a Castlevania fighter, unless it was done right.

I kind of wanted to play Alone in the dark for the same reason as you, I just wasn't going to pay $40 for it, or even $12 to rent a BB.

Oh, right, of course they would know about the deal ahead of time LOL. *is an idiot*

Popular opinion generally agrees that the game is bad, but I for one don't even like the normal Castlevania games (They're not bad games, just not for me) so a fighter that's been deemed terrible by many is just something I'm going to stay away from. But I've never played it. Is two hours of laughs really worth $10? If it is for you, then hey, go for it. ;)

No credit card required. Since June 2009 I have gotten $430 in amazon gift cards. Just use it instead of google (because it's the same search engine), and get giftcards for amazon.
