FEAR2 is 360 only?? :(
SFIV is tempting but I rather hunt down some BlazBlue @ a decent price..

Dang! Picked up 2 copies of SFIV during 2 for 3 sale. Now gotta see if the GameStop I go to will be cool enough to let me give em back for the $20 version. Probably not. :(

crap, should have waited to buy SF4 (bought it like a month ago at full price)


This is a teachable moment, then, CAG in training.

Never buy at full price. Especially not with the economy how it is. Almost no games manage to sustain sales high enough to stay at a $60 price point. We had heard rumours Gamestop was going to go all out with sales this quarter due to lower profits and it looks like that's the case...

Not that I'm questioning the validity on this, but is there an ad or some reference we can go by? I just don't want to have to walk into GS tomorrow and have to explain the price on a game if the new price hasn't been confirmed yet.


Check online tonight, the prices should drop if this is for real.

Given they had a very similar set of drops a few weeks ago for similarly new titles, I would put the odds of this happening as pretty good. There's no obvious flags this is bogus.

That said, with the last sale (when HAWX/Bionic Commando dropped) the games sold out FAST, both online and in store... so plan accordingly. I'm sure SFIV will be gone within an hour of this going live on the site. (if not sooner)

Anyways, go buy some HWV games on sale at $4.99 and move your money back or get SF IV or any other sweet $19.99 new game on sale right now at Gamestop.8-)


lol you're talking to me like I'm a CAG n00b. The stores in my area are cleaned out. The games left at HWV are barely fetching $1 - $2.50 (2.50 if you're lucky) at Gamestop. That is, if those are even left.

Hopefully this will be online as well as in-store, since I won't be able to run by a store until after the end of the sale.

Just as an FYI, I was looking to see what Gamestop was currently charging for a couple of the games I'm interested in. Donkey Kong comes up when you search and shows the new price as $19.99 after $10.00 price drop. The used game is showing up with a $9.00 price drop. However, if you actually go in and look at the game or add it to your cart it goes back to its regular price.

I'm not sure if that is just a fluke, or if they are actually going to be lowering prices on used games for these as well.


Anyway, I'm pretty excited about this, these will be my first games since becoming a CAG that will be decent titles. If I got all the games I'm currently wanting, that would be a total of $239.95 before tax and shipping. So if I get them tomorrow it will only be $100, I say that is a darn good deal!

Now I just need to take some time and decide what I'm going to get before actually getting there :wall:

Wow, I'm very glad I waited on SFIV. I can't imagine it will be $20 any time soon after this sale. I may pick up Fear 2 as well.

If the sale starts online tonight at 7pm, would it also start in store at 7pm?

I'm in for SF4, been waiting forever for a great deal!

That's a spectacular assortment of drops on stuff I either already have or (Eugh... fighting games.) don't want.

To answer some questions:

this is REAL I am not making this up like some have mentioned. What would I get for making up random deals? Besides this came straight from a company email that my source showed me.

Also animal crossing and excitebots are GAME ONLY no bundles (I.e wii speak or wheel)

There is NO AD for this. These are just temp markdowns that go from 7/28-8/2

street fighter iv seems to be limited in the stores around me and the email instructs the associates to display the $20 street fighter sale. on the counter to push this amazing price. Don't wait on this, buy street fighter asap when sale starts.

Wanted for PS3 and 360 is showing as "Not Available Online", so that's not an option for picking it up. That one would be in-store only.

Shrike, just let me know which one that you're looking. I can always ship it your way.

I didn't know that a lot of people are looking for FEAR 2. I just returned an extra copy of $ 12.48 to Target an hour ago.

Thanks OP! Will probably pick up SF IV and Wanted. Won't be able to swing by GS until the weekend, so here's hoping that I can find SF IV by then!

Very nice sale. You don't get Edge discount with this so buying for $20 and flipping to Amazon for $16 isn't a good deal. Is Wanted good for $20 or is that more of a $10-$15 or a rental?

Wanted's a solid rental anyway. 50 Cent and Ao2 are much closer to "buys". Not to knock Wanted, it is a nice ride, but this is definitely not a game you'll come close to justifying keeping as opposed to renting.

EDIT: I really, really hope all my GS's sell out of SF4. It is going to be tough to resist that price. Chun Li's thighs are hypnotically drawing me in.

The last sale had many of the games go "not available online" for a few hours leading up to it, IIRC.

I just checked the thread from the 7/8 sale and they went live online around noon ET the day the sale started.

(just noticed SFIV for 360 and PS3 just went to "limit 2 per household", they didn't have that wording when I first checked when this thread was posted)
