Wow, congrats OP. You wasted a lot of people's time.

Can we not allow any more "I heard from ________ that there is going to be a __________ sale at ________"?


To his credit, almost all the previous "I heard from..." hes posted in the past about B2G1 did actually happen. So I wouldn't just call him a complete douchebag. Just this time :o

BUT... I heard my aunt is having a great B1G1 VHS tapes at her garage in two weeks from now starting Saturday Night at 11:59 PM (So technically two and a half weeks). :D


Any porn?

Since most of their used prices are cheaper online now anyway, why would you even want to go into a B&M store for one of these sales? (plus, online, you can use CAG16!)


Because at the B&M store I can look at it before I buy it and see what condition it's in. Given the shit condition that most of the used stock in their stores is in, I would never trust that I would get something acceptable when ordering online sight unseen.

Indeed ... I suspect we're going to see one before Thanksgiving -- if only b/c Gamestop wants to jump on the Black Friday competition and roll out some sales to get shoppers to empty wallets a little earlier.

May be it's next week instead of this week?

Well this thread has been a waste of server space. I now only hope that the decisionmakers at Amazon stumbled upon this thread and we'll soon see a matching Amazon B2G1 deal.

Maybe my experience is uncommon, but I've bought 50+ used games from GS over the years and I've only had to take one back once. Then again, I'm not a collector and I throw out the boxes to save space, so perhaps I'm just not picky enough :lol:

History says there will be a B2G1 starting on Black Friday, not before. I doubt GS would change the strategy they have employed for the past 5+ years. All the better in my book, since it'll be easier to grab Dragon Age and maybe *fingers crossed* MW2 at that point.

This may mean absolutely nothing and only be very specific local deals but when I did a search yesterday for a Gamestop B2G1 I came up with these two hits:

http://www.newtownem...o/mnogsales.cfm

http://www.shopmacar.../scc/28018.html

Both are showing B2G1 Gamestop deals on November 15 and it appears to be a type of charity shopping night in both cases. Its likely that its just for those local fund raising events, but the possibility exists that the B2G1 deal hits next weekend and those Gamestops provided the information to the malls so as to be added to the list of promotions. I just found it noteworthy since both had the deal listed for the same weekend.

Its a longshot but I thought I'd share for those that are interested.

That does seem odd. I have my games in dvd holders and my boxes in a moving box. That way when I sell them I can get more for them.

Might as well change the thread title to "Gamestop running B2G1 free sale on Black Friday", which is most likely more true than this thread ever was.

Same here. Gamestop is my primary video game shopping venue and I've always been pleased with them. However I buy almost exclusively used, always trade in, and I'm not very picky about the condition of the game as long as it plays. Over the years I have only had to return one game as well and they were very courteous and quick to exchange. Gamestop is where its at for me.

I try to only buy games that are 20+ hours with high replay value. Anything shorter or that only looks like it is worth one run through I get through GameFly. And if I ever do get sick of a game I'd rather hold onto it and let someone borrow it than to pawn it off for 50¢ at GS or $4 on Ebay. I throw out all of my DVD boxes too...the horror :hot:

Hey, MacArthur Center isn't too far from me! But I don't know about paying $5 or $10 to have the "privilege" of being disappointed when I find out they don't have crap for used games that night. :cry:

These small world coincidences always blow me away. I literally have family that lives in New Philadelphia, and I hate going home to see them. I guess this will give me a reason to go. So this thread was not a total bust for me after all. Thanks a ton donbaloo

I can't see how anyone's time was wasted. If you have time to get all excited about sales, research what games to get, etc. I would guess you have plenty of it.

My take on why this thread has erupted into such a mess was the amount of time between the threads creation and the sale. I agree with someone else who said that the OP was trying to do a good thing by giving everyone as much notice as possible. Unfortunately the reality is that anything about GS (from the Trade in thread to the weekly coupons to the new game price drops) is a lightning rod which provokes a great deal of discussion among CAGS. So when someone creates a thread about their best type of sale (which is rarely confirmable) and it's created 10 days in advance it will inevitably result in argumentation even if the sale actually happens.

This thread's fate will be decided by 8pm ET when the first GS closes. But like previous B2G1 deals they don't know until very close of the sale. Which makes total sense to protect their gold mine. You don't want some employee yapping to their preferred customers to come back at 7pm on Friday to buy two games.
