Game Pass

Rent unlimited games for a month. You can have one game (or 2 depending on the pass) out at a time and can return it whenever you want and switch it out as many times as you want.

$21.99 for 1 Game

http://www.gamerush....es_gamepass.php click this link to find out about gamepass at Gamerush.

You must have a credit card/check card to signup. Checkcard must be visa, mc, amex, dc, or diners club. You can also do it by getting a prepaid visa, mc, dc or amex card with at least $1 on it so it will clear the authorization and just pay for it each month (very tedious though). You can cancel at any time. Good on any rental game (gamecube, psp, nds, gba, xbox, ps2).

Thanks to io for his work on compiling the following pre-order list.

-----------------------------------------------------

Here's a relatively up-to-date GR preorder list, grouped by month, based on GR's expected shipping dates (I have actual dates if anyone is interested but was not about to type those all in). Note that March 2006 was a placeholder for many of the games delayed from this year - so I would expect many of those games to come out even later. Note that this list also has a column labelled "Presell cut-off date" which is always 5 days before the expected ship date. Maybe they have an official policy about preorder cutoffs now.

Note also that this list is certainly not comprehensive because it does not contain Phantasy Star Universe (for PS2) or Chibi Robo (GC), both of which I myself have preordered.

Yes, thats a real easy money maker. It's 19$ at BB, 15 A/C, so easy 9$ profit. Rinse & Repeat until you can buy no more :)

Or $10 at TRU, which is where I thought most people were getting them from.

Seems easier to stockpile at TRU since you can just buy many at one time, and not have to worry about multiple coupons.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

Yeah, there are others as well, such as Phantasy Star Universe for PS2 (May). Black & White Creates for DS and PSP are also in the preorder system. (EB games also has a B&W listed for PS2 for May - it's a B&W bonanza!).

Age of Empires is a strange one - GR has it listed for $39.99, but everywhere else has it for $29.99. So I'm looking to switch that to something else, but like I said before, they won't switch to a $50 game without making me pay $10 more (even though I used the preorder deal). GR has it marked as a Feb 1 release, but EB has it set for Feb. 14th. So I'm hoping that once Feb 1 passes and GR doesn't have it they will let me switch to a $50 game. Or maybe I ought to just pay the $10 difference - it would be better than getting a $30 game having used the preorder deal!

Now, I would just switch it to Shadow Hearts From the New World, since that is supposed to be a $40 game, but of course damn GR has it listed as a $50 game! So if I switched to that and paid the $10 difference they would just keep the difference (as far as I can tell they do NOT refund price changes on preorders).

Black & White DS is listed at EB as a Feb 1 release and as a $50 game (GR has it for $40). EB must be wrong on both counts there.

Gamecrazy has Suikoden V as a $40 game, EB and GR have it for $50. Gamecrazy also has Valkyrie Profile for PSP available for preorder, but not GR (I looked through their PSP preorder list a few days ago and there's nothing new).

Count on paying those higher prices then. Wild Arms 4 has an MSRP of $39.99, I ended up having to pay $49.99 for it at GR (but with the credit I didn't care about the extra $10, still was about $20 out of pocket in "real" money). Since Shadow Hearts is also being brought here by XSEED, expect the $49.99 tag to stay.

Not sure why GR is charging $10 more for select games, it's odd. I even double checked on WA 4, I thought $49.99 was some kind of mistake, but nope.

Yeah, I'm gonna follow-up with them on AOE, see what might cause that. You'd think if they price-matched trade-ins, they might price-match sales, but I suppose not. But ditto... it might be $10 more credit, but that still translates to around $20 cash as opposed to the $30 I would pay anywhere else.

OK, good to know, so they aren't even correcting the prices AFTER release, eh? That sucks. Not sure I even want the new SH, as I haven't played the first 2 yet. I was able to get SHC from Target for $7.50, maybe I should wait for the same for the new one :D. I'm trying to be more selective with my preorders even with the "double" credit at GR - I have too many GR-preordered games sitting around sealed, and available elsewhere for $10 or so :-(.

How so? It has been $15 new at GS the whole time as well (or was that Echo Night?). In any case, until GR drops it, it hasn't run its course :D. I actually haven't even traded Kuon in to any of my local stores yet, so I was hoping for one more GS Buy 2 Get 1 free run. Since Brotherhood of Steel was a bust, any ideas on the third game?

Any idea what Fable gets at GR? I noticed that was $9.99 at GS, but the one copy I saw was all beat up, so I didn't bother.

Well, I figure if EB's had it at 49.99 forever, GR might decide to drop it soon as well. But I'm done trading that one in anyway (too many and not sure where I've traded anymore). Couple more Geists then I'll be waiting on a new moneymaker.

Maybe Road Trip for PS2? The GameCube version of that game sells for $40 used at GR, but I'm not sure about the PS2 version. I need to ask about those the next time I'm in GR.

Hehe, I'm waiting on a moneyspender. I've got way more credit than is healthy. I think I'll pick up that GB player I saw the other day ($45). Don't really have any need for it, but what the heck. It's going to be a long while before we can preorder PS3 or Rev, I think... (at EB they said the Sony rep wouldn't tell them anything, and he thinks that's a bad sign, Rev he expects by Thanksgiving as we all do).

Completely OT:
Overheard customer at EB "So, you know what Playstation 2 should do? They should come out with games that cost a little more but have a movie included on the disc. That would be cool. Half game, half movie. Yeah, that's what they should do". Sad thing was he was about my age :roll:. And let's just say that I'm easily old enough to be aoLat's father.

ViolentLee you are an unselfish man, unlike most of these greedy bastards. I remember another post of yours about you giving a Blockbuster giftcard to your mailman for Christmas. You deserve every great deal this site has to offer. Respect.

Raze's Hell for XBOX gets $7.00. I picked this up at the KB Clearence a couple of months ago for $3.50 so trading it in was worth it.

Don't think I've ever seen a Road Trip. drfielgood's list from way back (that's been pretty accurate) had Road Trip (GC) for $27, I believe. I'd have to check that when I get home.

Yeah, I'm guessing it still trades in for $24 or $27. I see the PS2 version of it a lot at GameStop for $10 used, but I doubt it's worth as much as the GameCube version. Definitely something I need to follow up on though.

Yeah, it is probably like Auto Modellista. That gets squat for PS2, but I think in the 20's for GC. I'm sure Road Trip is the same.

Maybe he was mentally challenged? I don't know. BTW I'm 15, so you'd have to be like... 40 something most likely to be my dad. You're old. :D

Thanks, bro. Sometimes there's better things to put credit toward than another game that's going to sit unplayed on my shelf, y'know?

Road Trip for PS2 trades in for $2.50. :( I just called. I didn't ask about the GC one though.

Wait Tom Green got his own game? Is the snake eating a mouse level in first person or over the shoulder view? What about the fat black girl stage?

I can't believe I missed this.......
