MODS: Please delete if this is a repeat.. Thnx


Went to Circuit City yesterday and saw the display(standee). Not sure when the price will drop though, hopefully by next weekend.


***Update 8/2/06***

Best Buy has this marked 19.99 in store (14.99 + tax if you can get the GGC).

Just go and get it there. I did. CC is such a hassle in getting them to price adjust.




***UPDATE 8/1/06 ***

People have been reporting that CC's computers are ringing up the games at 19.99. CC's website has been updated with the prices. SOTC is missing from the website though. Looks like the 2 for $30 is a go!!!




***UPDATE****

Its starting to look like the games aren't going to be dropped until 8/6. If your CC has the display up. It does say in print that they are 19.99. You can point that out and hopefully they can adjust it. Some people have reported getting it done already. It is starting to look like YMMV with this one.


(7/30/06 - 8/5/06) Circuit City ad ---------> $30 for any 2 games under $20.

SHADOW OF THE COLLOSSUS
RACHET DEADLOCK
SLY COOPER 3

PSP GH titles were also present.

I did see Twisted Metal and Ape Escape... The others I can not confirm from memory.


According to PSXEXTREME.

Awesome. Thanks for the heads up... I just hope that one of my CC's actually has the game with the unmangled cover.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

So would you guys suggest heading into Best Buy in the next couple days and snagging a copy of SotC and pricematching it when it drops, or what? When does this drop actually happen?

Fuck just got back from my Best Buy and all are GH for Shadow of the Collosus. Asked the guy if they have any originals out back and he said they ship them back once the game goes GH :mad:

You sure it wasn't the ones with the red label across the outer packaging? I was under the impression that when a game with lots of retail copies on the shelves goes GH, they just slap a GH label on the (sealed) case.

Ha! I've long suspected this. Every time a game goes GH, the next day all Best Buy has are GH versions. And you know they didn't just sell out of all the regular versions. I knew something was amiss. This is true for PH games for XB as well.

I wish they'd just apply the GH stickers like TRU.

Try PM at other locations like TRU or CC or GS or EB where they might still have original cover.

I don't get it either, but GH version has a different UPC than original, go figure.

My Best Buy must suck, then, because I've seen loads of games with the GH stickers and a few weeks ago, I found a couple copies of Doom 3, non-PH - quite some time after it was released as PH.

Those are some deep thoughts coming from a 14-year-old. :applause: :lol:

Just to add my $.02, SoTC is the worst-looking GH cover in the history of GH. The obtrusive red completely ruins the artistic monochrome look they achieved so well.

Awesome news for the people who have been waiting... I already scored all these games at $20 or cheaper months ago :)

SotC is one of the greatest games of last gen.

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.

Not sure. But if you get it next week at CC, you can probably get 2 for $30 (provided the $19.99 is effective by then).

Besides the art style and the ending, the games share very little in common... doesn't really matter :)

Phew, looks like my tactic paid off. See, I didn't want to buy SOTC back like a month and a half ago because I suspected it'd drop soon... if I had bought it then, it would've been out of the price adjustment period (I think) so I hid it behind some stupid Disney singing radio shit... well, I don't actually know what it was I hid it behind, but I knew that it wasn't selling. So I check the regular shelves and all the copies had been sent back. Grabbed the copy I hid, and now I've got a regular edition... just have to wait for the price to actually drop now...

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

Cool, I just bought a non-GH version of Shadow of the Colossus on eBay for $22 last week. I'd rather have the original over the GH version.

Anybody suspects the same thing will happen with RE4 for the PS2? I've been itching to buy that game for the past months but I'm worried there will be a significant drop in price soon once it turns into GH. But then agan, I don't wanna end up buying the one with a lame ass cover :drool:
