Yeah - the manager here that I like was telling a girl he was going to have her come in this week to sticker all the stuff for the sale. In his words 'You know, the sale where we have to gut like 300 games and put price stickers all over them." I love that guy :)

Any idea if this is going to be in store only?

Yeah, found out about this about a week ago.

A couple of titles we were speculating are Borderlands GOTY and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

I usually hate these sales though, and that's coming from an ex-employee. Yeah, there's sometimes 1-2 good titles, but the availability of those are low, and it's only if you somehow missed some of the big titles through the years.

If it's online it's good if it's in store.............It will greatly depend on your GS. Totally ymmv. One GS by me has very few and very crappy gamecube games, the other has a couple decent ones and more selection but I don't know if I can find 4 good games I haven't played.

Last year wasn't great, not sure I picked anything up. But two years prior I got Valkyrie Chronicles on the PS3 for around $20 or $25 and that was well worth it.

Wishlist for significantly cheapened games:

Fable III
Dead Rising 2


And I just got a PS3, so how about a B2G1 PS3 Greatest Hits? Please, Gamestop?

Oh I forgot gamestop does the yearly bin sale. I am hoping for a deal on borderlands goty edition. My PC basically died and I want to play all the DLC.

God I love borderlands, but hell any good games really that I don't own and are cheap are fine by me.

Unless you have GS credit or giftcards you missed out on 2 of the 3 last week DA2 not 3 was $30 @ BB w/purchase of Crysis 2. Crysis 2 came with a $10 giftcard & another $10(500 RZ bonus points) for pre-ordering. KZ3 could've been had w/a $40 giftcard and another recent release at TRU on KZ3 release week. I was lucky enuf to get BB to price match the TRU deal and get KZ3 + bulletstorm for $40 ea. & they "charged" me $40 for the giftcard.

I think Red Dead will drop back to 29.99. I also agree with alanamaslama that Fable 3 will probably be cheap.
