wow, all new games starting at 39.99 for this generation systems (if normally priced at 49.99 or lower) without having to trade games. not too bad but compared to 29.99 + trade in credit, this new deal is ho-hum. thanks for the info (listed in the new map?).

Yup in the new map, btw i didnt see anything about a Mario Kart DS Bundle but also if this a Prepackaged Bundle from Nintendo then it wouldnt be in there either if GameRush is putting it together in-store then it would have that info communicated in the Map. But if Nintendo is offering this that means all Game Stores should get it and it should be valued at the same price so i see EbGames is offering it for 149.99 and it ships on 11/28 so that info should accurate at GameRush aswell since we carry mostly similar prepacked prodcuts. http://www.ebgames.c...duct/259765.asp

Hmm. Guess I better scour the lists of upcoming games to see if there is anything left to preorder.

While $10 off isn't bad for new releases, I don't expect I'll use it much unless another cash-cow tradein comes along. Just makes the credit go a little further. Bummer that the 360 isn't eligible, either. They'd have all my business for the $50 price point games.

Any word on a chain-wide Black Friday sale of any sort, Nemesis35?

Great deals on the Gamecube bundles - those are some good games they are giving away, not the usual Player's Choice fodder most stores give with GC's.

This new deal is very meh... Hopefully, once they see the preorders drop to nothing, they will bring back the $29.99 preorder deal. I'm going to make a few last preorders even though there's nothing left to get - I'll just double up on things like Zelda or FF XII and hope to change them later. Though that is always more difficult when they aren't running the $29.99 promo (because they will credit me $30 and then want to use the bar code to do the new one and it won't work - this happened in the summer when the deal went away for a few weeks).

Someone at the end of the last thread said Suikoden V wasn't in the system as of last week - on the contrary, both Nemesis and I reported that it WAS in the system as of last week. In fact, my store allowed me to switch Suikoden Tactics to Suikoden V.

Since we are running out of time, here is the list of items I keep checking for. I will be out of town all next week so I'd REALLY appreciate it if people could ask about these around mid-week. Then I can make a few last trades when I get back next weekend and hopefully preorder a few of these:

DS:
Children (or World) of Mana
Final Fantasy III
Xenosaga I & II
Mario Basketball 3 on 3
Contact
Katamari
Super Princess Peach :D

PSP
Tales of Eternia
Suikoden I & II
Tokobot (comes out Nov. 29 so it should be in there - I haven't checked this one)
Katamari
Magna Carta

GC
Baten Kaitos 2
Odama

PS2
Shadow Hearts From the New World

In particular, I'd like to get any of the PSP or DS RPG's preordered. I really don't have much trade fodder to use right now anyway, so I can only probably do 2 more. Though I do have a few double preorders that I can switch to some of these if they show up in the next 1 1/2 weeks. Plus I'll be in the DC area which is a MUCH better place to find trade fodder, so if some of these show up I can go pick up a few $5 games hopefully.

Well this means we can say good bye to GR's high trade in values.

If GR ever loses their good trade in prices, they will die within 2 months. They don't have a large preowned section AND they don't get in their new releases in time, if ever.

I seriously doubt they will buy back a game for $30-$35 when they are selling it for $40.

Chibi-Robo yes, Odama no, though last time I checked on that one was about 4-5 days ago. Please ask about Odama if you go in, because it is one I would definitely preorder. The deal runs until Nov. 21st - basically through next weekend (and I am out of town and GR-less from Nov 13 - Nov 19).

Hah, of course I posted my question right at the end of the last thread.

I know io checked on the new Shadow Hearts being in the system and it wasn't but has anyone checked any other upcoming RPGs? I know Suikoden 5 isn't in there at least as of last week. Does anyone know if Wild Arms 4 or Grandia 3 are in the system?

Did anyone pre-order Magna Carta? I know they never got in DDS or any Atlus titles for that matter but I was hoping they cleaned up their act by now. And checking Gamespot they've announced a sequel to it for the 360 in 2007, wow.

These are the same math wizards that give you $35 for a game they sell used for $45. But wait, they don't really sell it for $45, they sell it for 25% off of $45. This means that they are actually selling it for $33.75. That's right, they lose $1.25 for every game they give $35 in trade-in credit for and that's not even counting what they are paying employees to take in the trade and sell the game again. It's comical.

I preordered it, it's worth a shot. I also preordered it at EB games where I'll actually be able to pick it up the day it comes out. Then if by some miracle gamerush get's it in I'll just return the unopened copy i get there to EB.

Who knows? I haven't tried to pick mine up yet. I also preordered the Limited Edition which of course has been cancelled, I remember the regular ed and the limited ed were two different part numbers, so I think its a big YMMV here as to whether they'll let you get the regular one or just give you $30 credit back or whatever. I'll report on my findings tomorrow
