I wanted to buy F.E.A.R. 2, but I heard it wasn't that good.

Oh well, it was a great sale though, especially for those who didn't bought SF IV on the first day.

Nothing to see here, move along!

Glad I went today and grabbed Ps3 SF4 and Fear 2 and Wii Animal crossing. Had to take a gutted SF4 though as it was the very last copy.

That totally stinks Gamestop is stopping the sale early. It was a great sale and it is too bad not all the CAG were able to get in on it.

For once, I didn't over think something and just bought the games. I usually think something over so long that I run out of time or it is sold out, fortunately the OP gave me enough notice I was able to think it over the entire night before and get what I wanted on the day of the sale.

I can't believe that Gamestop actually already has the shipment on its way to me and it has already left Nashville, so hopefully it will get here soon. I've been watching my credit card to see if they charge me for the order I canceled within two minutes of placing it, but I haven't got any charges for either order yet, so hopefully everything will work out there as well.

It wasn't as good as the first FEAR but was still a great FPS, compared to all other FPS beside FEAR 1....

Why would gamestop stop the sale early all of a sudden after advertising it till 8/2? What a joke. This is one of many reasons I personally dislike Gamestop.

Just out of curiosity, unless things are in the hands of small children, what happens to the original cases and manuals? Is there some kind of graveyard with original cases, manuals, and missing socks from the dryer?

Yeah, really- "fuck! More people have bought SFIV in the last 24 hours than since launch! What are we thinking selling it for so freaking cheap??"

There's a big "emergency shutdown" switch being pulled at Gamestop HQ...

Glad I got most everything I wanted. Would've liked to maybe check a couple more PMs out but maybe it's for the best to cool it money-wise..!

Wow, I made out like a bandit today. Traded in cart-only copies of Layton and NSMB with four garbage games for over $60 in credit. Used that to buy SFIV and FEAR 2, with over $20 left. Then, I returned a copy of FNR4 I had purchased several weeks ago during their "Trade 3, get FNR4 free" promo. The dude gave me cash because I renewed my Edge card... O_O

Somebody should edit the OP to state that is over already. :bomb:

Some games are still $17.99 used. That's conciliation I guess if they have it still at that price tomorrow, which is very very doubtful.

Meh, hopefully GS realizes that WITHOUT this sale, a lot of people won't be buying these games from them and will restart it randomly again, lol

Thanks for the heads up on this sale, Tenzor. I was able to go to my local Best Buy at lunch and PM :360:SF IV for a trade with another CAG and get Wii Music for $20, along with older GS $20 sale games, :360:H.A.W.X. & :360:Endwar. Out the door with 4 new games and points towards some RZ certs for under $85 total is a win in my book.

Glad I went today instead of waiting until later.

I edited the OP, I was on my iphone earlier, so I was not thinking clearly when typing and accidentally put the sale ending tomorrow, but The sale ends at the close of business tonight, which is pretty much right now. Most west coast people as of this post have like 45 mins until the store closes to get any of the $19.99 prices that are left.

I think managers are usually the ones that open up shop.

So the SF4 I bought just happened to be defective and to top it all off, it was the last gutted copy. I was wondering if they'd just give me a refund or try to pass off a used copy as a replacement? Any thoughts?

Total joke of a sale. The first day I hit 3 gs before 5pm and they were sold out of SF4 for ps3, had them call 2 others within driving distance, sold out. So they were tapped in my area before working CAGS could even get a shot.

I called another 4 gs in my area today within a larger circle from my yob and all sold out.

Might as well end the sale, the damn game isnt in stock anywhere. Mission accomplished GS, excellent clearance, but you probably torqued off more people than you pleased with this sale.

My 3 gamestops near me have SF4 in stock but I avoided this sale as I had the games I wanted already. Then it ends early and I hear some of you cant get the game at all. I would have helped some of you if the sale wasnt already over.

Most likely they will call stores around to send a replacement copy over or e-mail corporate to get a replacement copy for you. Since you purchased a new game (even though it was already open and gutted) they would not allow a refund for money or exchange for a different game because it has been "opened" and "played". All new SOFTWARE and HARDWARE sold from GameStop can't be returned once opened or used. They can only be exchanged if the item is defective, but only for the identical item.

Which in this case if a copy is not available, they usually call local stores or the GS wherehouse to send them a copy for a defective exchange. Which means they may make you wait it out until a replacement comes since you have 30 days, and it would only take 3-5 days to get a copy there.

Well in NY, All 3 gamestops near/at the Queens Center are sold out of SF4.

The GS at 91-41 QUEENS BLVD still has a copy without case or manual if anyone is interested.

yea i picked up the last ps3 copy from the one near Sears yesterday. works fine. it was gutted but it was clean.

Wow I got extremely lucky then, I went there today 30 mins before closing just because to pick up my SFIV and I wasn't even going to because I thought I had plenty of time.
