I didn't try scanning it, but I'll give it a shot tomorrow, since it's probably closed now.

Agreed. That and the other two Zeldas are the only two left that I really want.

Definetly, that is the MSRP they should have been in the first place (roughly $3 per game with 6 - 7 games on a cartridge). $20 a piece was ridiculous

Great find, OP. This is a great price, but I think I'll hold off for the new Namco Collection (which will include this) instead.

Remember that the GBA version appearantly does not include Xevious...

I understand that it costs Nintendo money to make GBA cartridges, but the asking price really should have been much lower than $19.99 each to begin with for what are essentially straight ports of 20-year-old games. If all the NES Classics games were $3-5 new, I'd consider collecting them.

someone posted in the GR thread:

All NES classics for GBA are $9.99 and are included in the 50% off Nintendo deal. SO $5 a pop if they have them in stock.........

I had to take a display copy, but I was able to find it for $2.99 at an EB near me. Thanks, OP.

I went and got this yesterday (heard about it from CoffeeEdge).. I got the last one.. the display copy. Fortunately I was able get off all the dumb stickers those idiots put on them, except the price tag.

Actually, according to their website, it won't.

http://www.namco.com.../namcomuseum50/

"Game Boy Advance version includes Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig Dug and Bosconian games."

Basically, GBA Namco Museum-Pole Position+Pac-Man and Bosconian.


Definitely worth emphasising this. The GBA version of Namco 50th Anniversary will only have five games, and Xevious is NOT one of them.

Thanks op, I was able to pick up a Xevious the other day. I think this was the only "NES Classic" game that I have never played before, so I'm looking forward to giving it some time.

Yeah. I hate that. I got a display copy too. "Would you like a Gameplay gurantee?" "How can you save 10 percent? Ask an associate how" "Would you like your cock sucked? Ask your associate how!" "Would you like to save 10 % on your oral sex? Ask us how!"
And of course the price tag itself.

Didn't you just post that no store in Veags has this game?:lol::wall::bs::-s:-k Actually wrong. Try the store by me has 3, Eastgate shopping Center store had 4 or 5 and the mall had a couple. Then there is the Maryland store that had 1 when I was there.

yeah thats cuz i asked at the meadows mall and i had the guy search the system, but when i went to the other EB i looked just for the hell of it and i found it. it had a sticker on it for $14.99 so i aksed for a price check and the guy knew automatically that it was $3. so then i was like wow meadows said there were none, and he said he had 8 or 9. so then i asked what was up with the system and he said it was new and they were still working the bugs out of it. i'll post a receipt if you want.

I'm sorry to bump this back up, but I just saw this game at an EB today and remembered this deal. I go to the lady and ask if it's cheaper and she gives me a look and says no, so I tell her to just scan it. Hoping now I would make her look like the fool instead of me when the price comes up $3... it was still $10. So I guess this was a temporary sale then? It's back up to $10.
Cause if you're not cheap, you're not trying!

we really need to like start timing these deals to see if there is a pattern so we know when it ends :D
