I agree. Awesome game. Good coupon this week. Only thing is that most of their GameCube games are so overpriced that you still aren't getting much of a deal.

Sorry if this has been asked already, but do they have to all be Xbox "or" Gamecube games, I mean can you buy two Xbox games and three Gamecube games using one coupon? Thanks ahead.


Nope, you can go ahead and mix & match to your liking

That's been very true for me, too. With every sale/coupon like this, I've noticed the conditions have gone down steadily for the rarer/popular games. I would do an availability search only to be disappointed the box was chewed or the manual missing (irony being I almost never look at manuals, but I cannot bring myself to buy a game without one. :roll:)

Plus Gamestop's new practice of putting stickers inside the cover on the spine has cheesed me off. I've been lucky to find a couple stores that only slide an unpeeled sticker under the sleeve. Those stores get most of my used business.

My normal store does that now with the sticker still on it's paper. You can tell on the older Xbox games and almost all Gamecube games, if it has a sticker on the spine, it is on the insert. The good news is, I've only had one insert partially damaged by the removal of the sticker. I guess I can consider myself lucky in that respect. My local Gamestop opens in 40 minutes, so I'm taking an early lunch and picking up my stuff. I actually called them last night and had them hold about 8 games for me. They knew why, and didn't care. They were actually more than glad to help.

Wow! Great coupon, but of course hampered by the fact that the prices on the more popular games are already so high, that even with 40% off they aren't that great of a deal, or are even a bad deal. Be sure to check ebay's completed listings for the games you are interested in. In many cases I've checked so far, ebay offers better prices even considering the 40% off (plus tax), at least if you are a little ebay savvy and have some patience. There are exceptions, though. It's about time I picked up RE4, and the 40% off price is good, even compared to ebay. Also, if you don't have patience, well, ebay isn't for you, and this coupon is.

I might re-buy Beyond Good and Evil for Gamecube... if I can find it in good shape, or at all. I never should have traded it in, considering its fairly hard to find the GC version now. I wish the Xbox version worked on the 360.

First off, Great Coupon this week and thanks to the OP for getting it out there early! Also thanks for some of the lists that were posted as well. I'll have to take a closer look and pick out some of the ones I don't have in the collection and pick them up this week.

As others have mentioned before, the GC/Xbox sections at most of the local GS are horrible. The selection is bad, the organization is non-existent and I've been seeing more and more copies of games that are disc only. They have also really jacked up the prices for the in demand games but this coupon + edge does make them a bit more reasonable.

As for b2g1, there was a speculative post a couple weeks ago that said b2g1 was coming during the gamedays sale, but it doesn't look like it is happening this month. Saying b2g1 is coming is redundant considering GS runs that promotion at least once in each fiscal quarter. Their next quarter ends at the end of July so draw your own conclusions as to what week in July it will occur. Just keep checking the deals forum and once there is some confirmation someone will post it.

Let's go Pens!

I think he just copied "coupon+edge" from the transaction listed above the wavebird. 10% off used accessories for Edge seems to be what he was trying to convey.

No, there is a normal 10% off used items coupon that updates itself. I used it and the edge card. I need to change how that is worded.

Yeah, sorry about that. I was just excited to catch a 4th Wavebird. I haven't seen a sealed WaveBird in a GameStop in forever. I've caught 4 used WaveBirds, 3 at one GameStop, in the past month. Three gray ones and one platinum. I paid the price on 4 of them that some people pay for one. Besides the one I bought today, because I haven't tested it yet, they all work great.

Oh yea, forgot about that coupon. I actually stopped bothering with it once they excluded New items a couple months back.

I never buy anything used there unless it is during a 25%-30% off coupon or B2G1 deal so I can never use that coupon anyways.

On a semi-hard to find item like a wavebird that is a good coupon to use. Thanks for reminding me! ;) (searches for 10% off coupon thread before going to GS during lunch hour)

I rarely have to use it, but I keep about 6-8 in my wallet all the time because I never know when I'm going to walk in there and find something rare that I should pick up immediately.

Wish I can give a list but I'm one of those people who didn't own a GameCube until the end of its lifecycle. I've been waiting for this coupon mainly for Pikmin 2, RE 2 and RE 3 and also Pokemon: Gale of Darkness and other Mario sports games. But unlike the deals where I was able to score via XBOX360, PSP, DS, PS2 and XBOX coupons... a lot of the games that I want to use with this coupon are over $25...But I guess with the Edge Card...now's the best time to get these games.

I actually did some Gamecube hunting months prior but here is what I was targeting and possibly maybe others might be interested as well:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - and BtVS - Chaos Bleeds - The Buffy games were awesome
Burnout 3: Takedown

Chronicles of Riddick
Conker & Reloaded - N64's pottymouth character on XBOX
Crimson Sea

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind - Despite Oblivion's beautiful scenery, there are many who feel "Morrowind" was much more of a better experience.
ESPN NBA 2K5
ESPN NFL 2K5
FABLE (Although if you have a PC, they have a better version on clearance at Target which has more to the the storyline and clearanced to like $7.99 or lower)
Fatal Frame 1 & 2 (There is more demand for the PS2 version but yet, FF's are hard to find nevertheless)
Farcry Instincts
FIFA SOCCER 2003
Final Fight Streetwise
FORZA Motorsport

Grand Theft Auto set / Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

Half-Life 2

NBA Inside Drive 2003
NBA Street Vol. 3
NCAA Football 2003
Need for Speed Underground 1 and 2
NFL 2K3
NHL 2002
Ninja Gaiden Black - If you don't have the PS3 version, this game is worth owning
Outlaw - Anything of the Outlaw series for the weirdness...although the golf has control issues, definitely an interest yet perverted game. The volleyball and Tennis games are my favorites from this series.
Otogi 1 and 2
Panzer Dragoon Orta - This should be in every Xbox collector's collection
Phantom Dust
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and Two Thrones
Psychonauts - This should be in every XBOX collector's collection
Rainbow Six (Ever since I became a Rainbow Six fan, I wanted to own everything in the series on the XBOX - Rainbow Six 3, Rainbow Six 3 - Black Arrow, Rainbow Six - Lockdown - Note: Critical Hour received the weakest rating of the RS games for the Xbox)
Rallisport Challenge 2
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Red Dead Revolver
Sega GT 2002/Jetset Radio Future
Shenmue III - Some love it, some hate...I love it and it comes with that second DVD movie clip from the first game (make sure it has the second disc)
Sid Meier's Pirate
Silent Hill series - Great but if you need that Gameshark or Pro Action Replay...go PS2
Spartan: Total Warrior
Spider-Man 2
SVC Chaos - SNK vs. Capcom - Although Capcom vs. SNK 2 was awesome, if you are a fan of both companies fighting games, you have to get this one too.
Tom Clancy - Splinter Cell, Pandora's Tomorrow, Chaos Theory - For those who need to complete their Splinter Cell collections
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - Must own but you get a better deal buying the PC version which comes with several games including this if you do PC gaming

I stopped by a local gamestop, but the pickings are getting slim for the Gamecube, at least if you want complete games. 90% of the NGC games are disc only. The only complete copy of a game I wanted that I found, Resident Evil 4, proved to be a mistake - they didn't actually have the game. I had checked on the web and it didn't show this particular GS as having it, so when I saw the box with instructions I figured I was lucky, or the online inventory was wrong. Turns out it was right.
