I'm desperately trying to find SoTC for cheap, but my Gamestop never has it in stock. :/
I've also tried ebay, but they're going for a good amount of money as well. Anyone know other alternatives?

Thanks.


If youre not afraid of the Greatest Hits box, then I saw a few copies at my Target, they were mixed in with the clearance items. It may be 20 but that game is well worth it.

How much did they charge from FF Chronicles? Kind of messed up if FFIV + CT for PS1 = $40, and now CT alone for DS also = $40.

Picked up C&C3 for $13.91 with tax, the guy also tried to give me a Games Day coupon to further lower the price, but it was expired, but awesome of him to try and save me even more money.

They also had Sonic for $15.99 (too much, if it was $10, maybe), Godfather for $14.99 (too much), Battlefield 2: MC ($15.99), and Hitman: Blood Money for $15.99 (I considered it, but didn't like the demo that much, so passed). They had a few more (Rockaway mall, downstairs GameStop), but those are just the ones I remember.

I got the only C&C3 left in that store though.

. The fact that you accepted two used games and still paid the new price is just sad, especially since many of the games in this sale can be found used for less money.



I dunno, I've seen games in this sale, for way cheaper than new or used. As a matter of fact the new price on the game I picked up was 29.99, if I paid 9 dollars and some change total, I've saved over 20 bucks. So should I too be making a big deal over an open box?

You know that you've got a good post on your hands when it starts like this...



Then...don't? No one told you to. I was merely telling people that WANTED to buy games and partake in the sale, but were hesitant, that many of the games were still sealed. Oh, my bad, though. You obviously needed to get your GameStop hate off your chest, so what was being discussed meant very little. It's all right. It will be ok one day.



Then...don't? Yes, I know, I used that already, but again, no one was telling YOU to do anything. So, please, stop flaunting your standards, as if people are going to be blown away. We've heard it all before. You're not a rebel against the corporate hacks, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!



Congrats? Considering I don't work for GameStop or own any share of the company, I don't really care if you burn one of their stores down. And considering that they put up record profits last year, I highly doubt "you and others you know" mean much to them.



...and I think it's sad that people like you still feel a need to come into GameStop deal topics and complain about policy. It's getting so old, it isn't even funny. If you want to complain about this stuff, there is a board you can discuss your shopping experiences.


First of all, I'm not anti-corporate. 95% of my games come from Amazon, Fry's, Best Buy and Target. I'm also not some hardcore, dedicated Gamestop basher. I was simply providing a contradictory opinion to your posting claiming that the games in the sale are new. You should take a look at your own experience and just accept that only 50% (2 of 4) of the games you purchased were new. Heck, as some other postings have noted, certain GS stores won't even accept their own "new", gutted games for returns because they are opened.

I'm just as fascinated with all the Gamestop apologists who crop up in these posts as you are with the alleged bashers. The people who post things like "the manual was only a little bent" or "it only took me a few minutes to peel off all the stickers on the case". I don't get why you are willing to accept substandard quality in exchange for saving just a little bit of money (and often not that much when you factor in no tax and free shipping from on-line retailers). Still, you are free to accept whatever crap product they put out and feel good about it if you'd like.

When we as CAGs discuss a deal, it has always been acceptable to talk about various aspects of that deal (i.e. shipping is too expensive or slow or the items are not as advertised). If you don't want to read posts like that, you don't have to. Just skip over them.

By the way, I would never ordinarily use the phrase "here's the deal". I only did it because I was so fascinated by your arrogance at including it in your own post.

Considering Amazon matched many of the deals or beat them by significant amounts in some cases (i.e. I got Timeshift Xbox360 for $13.88 last week) and the games are new, shipped free and without sales tax, I would dispute your claim that you did better than new or used. Like I said earlier, if you're ok with a used game at those prices, nobody is going to stop you from buying it. I'm just saying that as someone who only buys new games, I won't buy stuff in a sale that they intentionally gutted, especially when the same games can be had for the same or lower prices from other retailers. If Gamestop had put the additional sale prices as of the 30th on their website, I may have purchased them there in those few cases where the prices were cheaper, but only because the on-line operation generally does not sell used games as new. I'm really not sure why we are even still debating this, but that's just how I feel about this issue personally.

Facts trump rhetoric

------------------------Gamestop / Amazon
Tekken 5 (ps2) --------------7.99 /19.99
Soul Caliber II (ps2) ---------8.99 /NA*
Midway Arcade (psp) --------8.99 /19.79*
C&C III (360) ---------------12.99/ 21.11*
Need for Speed:Carbon (360) 9.99/ 24.99*

*Not sold by Amazon, not eligible for free shipping.

I'm only doing this because you continue to crap on other people suggesting they've found deals.

If you can find prices that even nearly match this online, why not share them instead of blankly insulting us "sad" people?

Except that was not your point at all, was it? Your point was that used games are the same as new and that we should all be happy with what we get because we saved a few bucks. I'm not accusing anyone of being sad, I just think it's sad that people are willing to accept less than what they should be getting because they don't stand up to retailers who engage in shady practices. I can't help but appreciate the irony of the giant picture of George Carlin in your signature. While Carlin questioned everything in our society, you just accept it all, no matter how crappy and more disappointingly, you are encouraging others to do the same. There's really nothing else to say.

I hear you, bojay.

Some people like buying games new, some people don't mind if they're used. Great, to each their own! But if we are all honest I think we can agree that if a company sells you a "new" game, for the full new game price, that game should actually be, you know... new.

Opened =/= new.

New =/= sealed. For some people new means unplayed by anyone. And just because it is gutted, doesn't mean it's been played.

As someone that has worked in multiple retail "big box" stores , I would never pay full price for something tho has never left the store is not in its "Original packaging".

This is going to effect return policies especially at holiday time. If you have ever worked in retail you would know the trials that merchendise goes thru at the hands of employees. not to say they dog em , but with ur next-gen systems health at stake and $60 price tags, its a valid argument.

Even though that jr. bacon cheeseburger is new in the wrapper, what if you knew it was dropped????

People wouldn't complain as much about gutted copies if GS offered 10% off, solely based on the concept that they technically used the case to display the product, which in turn motivates many purchases including yours. This, in my opinion, the right thing to do on their behalf. On a side note I picked up Carbon, Godfather & Street for $33 today, Carbon being gutted, but for $10 I'll live lol

Big deal, they gut the games. They should print up mock covers to put on display, but they don't. TOO BAD. Get over it.

This arguing about gutted games is getting old. If you really don't like it, don't shop there.
