Did the 50% show up as a promo on the receipt? Or is the 50% off just the current price? If it doesn't show up as a promo, one should still be able to use the 10% off coupon. Whether or not an employee will take it from you is another story, but the computer will allow it, if the 50% off is not a promo.


It is a promo, #5592

Got in on it. Had to call three other stores before I found one that started it today. Snagged The Club, which is the only game I really wanted, NBA 06 for 360 for 2.50, and Rebel Raiders for 1.20.
I was contemplating picking up all of the 99 cent sports games. They'd be less than 50 cents after the promo and Edge, and would be handy to have for extra PS2 cases. But I decided against it.

Ya, I picked up Prey, Collector's Edition (complete!) for 3.19. Can't beat that, since I bought it new, sold it back for 25, now get the better version (only had regular originally) for 3.19, lol. I ALMOST got the Darkness but I did not. I did also pick up Viewtiful Joe for DS, 7.19, good price.

just scored Prey for $3.19 and the Darkness for $7.19.

Can anyone give me a decent reason why I shouldn't do the same?

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

I also picked up Prey and the Darkness. Really tempted by The Club. But I have a feeling that will be dropping in price permanently soon with its lackluster sales/reception.

Yeah... but savings from coupons and whatnot are far less as game get cheaper and hardly ever match 50% off... the $20 savings now isn't going to be beaten for a long time, really. Even if it price drops to $20 like a lot of decent, but low grossing games (Like even The Darkness for instance), you probably won't see 50% off it again. Maybe something nice like 35% after a 25% coupon and EDGE, which at $20 would still only knock it down to $13. I'll go ahead and play it now, and trade it back in later. ^_^

No.

Prey is well worth it. I hated the Darkness but it is still probably worth $7.

Pretty much my thoughts as well. I've been tempted to grab Prey every time I've been in EB, but for $3.xx, can't really go wrong.

I really think the Darkness was pretty cool... not really like any other game I've ever played, to be honest. I think it's just an interesting game, personally. The aesthetics are pretty cool, the shooting isn't that bad, and the story is actually sorta interesting. But again... to each his own. But again, again... to each, $7.xx should seal the deal.

Anyone else encounter a store with the sale ON, but NCAA march madness is not one of the included games? I'm in NJ near PA. I even asked the (baffled) clerk to scan it and mentioned that it was 12.50 on the website.

After returning a copy of Octomania I bought last week, I picked up a complete Prey CE (figurines and all) and The Darkness for $3.19 and $7.19 respectively after Edge. The difference between my return and purchase was a whopping $0.42. :)

Thanks much, OP!

I picked the Prey CE complete today as well. I couldn't pass it up for $3.19, even though I had no intent of ever playing that game!

Considering original retail on it was $70, there was really no chance I was going to pass on it for just over $3. Amazingly, it's even still got an unused code to download the soundtrack. Just a question, though - how does the disc stay in the CE packaging? GS gave it to me in the little sleeve, but I can't see anywhere in the packaging that the disc would normally go.

For those who may get bored with Prey, the LE version supposedly gets $11 from Secondspin and Wherehouse.com, but I'm not 100% sure if that price would transfer over to FYE.

If it does though, I imagine that's going to be my new flip material for a bit, like Powerdrome for PS2 was at one point.

Picked up Prey and Big Bumpin,both complete, actually had to go to 2 seperate stores to find them. I swore I saw multiple complete copies before today, but it seems like people snatched them all up this morning.

Nothing to see here, move along!

Like others have found, my store had a bin full of this stuff, with a "final sale, 50% off" sign on it. They had a lot of copies of Prey, but I am going to hold out and see if I get can a CE.

Remember to check the shelf too, I saw about 10 "The Club"s on shelf before I saw the discount bin. There might be a CE on shelf.

Nope, everything they had was in the bin, unfortunately. At least, the 360 games. I wasn't interested in the other systems.

Absolutely no indication of a sale at my closest GS, but the game I bought (March Madness 08) rang up half off after he hit total (and the promo code came up). I saw a lot of the other games sitting in the regular shelves too. I love those kinds of sales - the ones only us CAGs know about ;).

FWIW - only 1 copy of Prey at this store, and disc-only to boot. I thought that was mighty strange - I figured every GS would be overflowing with those (they must have a lot system-wide for it to be so cheap to begin with even before the sale).

I went to pick up Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner. But only one store at the mall had it, it was missing the instruction booklet, and the case was in awful condition. I picked up :360:The Darkness and :360:Rainbow Six: Vegas for under $10 each w/ Edge Card.
