Picked up PS3 QoS and Tiger Woods 2009 tonight for the BOGO sale. Not much of a selection unless you have a 360, which I rarely play anymore. Scouring the area tomorrow for more deals. My closest Blockbuster had a huge sign up inside.


Yea, I went to 3 blockbusters and pick up only Dirt & Virtual Fighter 5 for Ps3. There were still whole bunch of 360 games..... I wish I had 360... T_T

Damn

I grabbed 4 9.99 and 2 14.99 at my store.
360: Gears of War, Red Faction Guerrilla
ps3: Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Folklore
psp: Crisis core, dissidia

My manager got confused pricing them, so he mixed up crisis core's 9.99 and dissidia's 14.99. RFG was my other 14.99, so that ended up getting paired with just a 9.99(CC) and we can't credit employee accounts so I lost 4 dollars. NOOOO, still only cost 33 for all 6 but the cheapass in me regrets paying more than I should have.

I wondered why dissidia was already 9.99 while CC was still 14, guess I should have checked their prices. Infact, I almost always do, even for just any customer to make sure there won't be any surprises. Stupid stupid stupid...

I should have gotten to my BBV sooner, but the selection wasn't terrible. Just way too many $19.99 games just out of reach of the deal.

I got..

Boom Blox BP $14.99
Dark Void (PS3) Free

Dark Void was miss marked at $9.99 so I got an even better deal than I though I was getting when I headed for the register.


They had a bunch of Dirt 2 games but they all rang up $29.99. That made me a sad panda.

Hey dude, if they had a wii one thats 14.99, go to the cashier and show them it. They MIGHT override it for you. I went in earlier today and asked the lady @ the cashier, and she scanned the wii one and said "Price is 14.99, the xbox 360 one is mismarked" LOL. I couldnt get it(i didnt have money on me, but will go back tomorrow and grab their goodies).

Seattle, WA - went to 3 stores on the Eastside that were very much picked over, less than 20 PS3 games total at all 3. Picked up Pure and Eat Lead for $10 just to come home with something.

No more heroes
Animal cross city folks.

I don't think I want them anymore, since I cant find the trade list for these BBV games, I'll do it right here I guess. I'll let them go for $19 shipped. Either that or I'll return it. Don't know why I bought these games..


you can't return them...

Doesn't matter. Pick it up anyway. It trades in for more than it costs at BBV right now. That's not even considering B1G1. Get a second game to trade in with it and you'll trigger the extra 10% for two promotion, bumping it up even more. Zero risk to you.


Preorder a game, then cancel it and your trade in values will bump up ;)

Got transformers 2 for 15 and far cry 2 (both x360) free
Then a buddy and I went to another BBV and split one: He got tomb raider (ps3) and picked up ghost buster for 10 total. (Can't beat 5 dollar games). I've made out better than the game fly sale. My backlog is so deep. Wife hasn't noticed the growing game collection.

Stopped in my local BBV today. Saw Zelda:Hourglass ($15), SF4 ($15), Kane and Lynch ($5), and some odd DS game for ($10). Took them all up to the counter, the guy told me I'd get the two cheapest games free.

I was like...Um...Do them separately then. He told me that he couldn't, and that I'd have to come back in tomorrow to buy them then and that he'd hold them for me.

What...The...Fuck is wrong with Blockbuster?

I just bought the two 15s and left, Fuck that shit-hole (I'm glad I screwed them out of so many games last year(and a couple Visa gift cards))

Today...was a GOOD day.

Went to 2 different BBV and picked up Rock Band 2 for (PS3) and Mario Super Sluggers (Wii) at each for 14.99 for a total of $30 + tax.

Traded in each of the Mario Sluggers at Gamestop for the $25 deal. Employee let me get Bayonetta (360) and Assassin's Creed 2 (360) from the gamedays sale. He had a flyer for the promotion in store. He manually bumped the tradein price of each to $25.00 and with edge it jumped to $27.50 each. Walked away with Bayonetta for 12.50 and Assassins Creed 2 for 2.50 + tax.

Then went home and signed into Amazon to trade in the two Rock Band 2s for 18.75 credit each.

So in total wound up with:

Bayonetta (360)
Assassin's Creed 2 (360)
$37.50 of Amazon credit

for a total of $45 + tax cash out of pocket !!

I mentioned that to the employee but I think he misunderstood me. The Dirt 2 games were actually mismarked as well @ $34.99. I noticed alot of the same games with different prices.

So I when I took a Xbox 360 version of Dark Void marked at $24.99 I assumed it just hadn't been marked down. They were kind enough to give me the PS3 DV for $9.99 so I wasn't going to push my luck.

I went to the Mira Mesa store today and it was..buy 2 get 2 free 14.99 or under. Only game I saw that was worth it was Revenge of the Fallen (PS3) but since I had to buy two games it wasn't worth it. Their higher priced used games weren't too bad though. Saw Avatar for 20 bucks, although it's 20 new at Target right now and a complete Spirit Tracks for 20 bucks as well.

Well I'm off Saturday so I'll try some other BBVs for better deals.

Has anyone checked the BBV TIV for LittleBigPlanet GOTY?

It might be a decent flip from GS->BBV with the $25 deal.

I've never traded at best buy. Can you trade games in-store? How does it work?

That's weird, there was a bin that said buy 1 get 1 free I guess there was fine print that it's not all games in the bin or someone put the game in the bin by mistake. I guess my reading comprehension is really bad: misread this title and probably misread the sign at BBV :)

Oops...forgot to post what I found earlier. Good thing I did search again but then again also not good. Either way I think I'm good and done with the BBV game hunting for the time being. Here's what I found earlier:

Mirror's Edge (PS3) Complete
No More Heroes (Wii) missing manual
Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3) complete
Beautiful Katamari (360) missing manual

So, I had some fun. Hit a few stores, and added the following to my collection:

360:
Afro Samurai
Bionic Commando
Blue Dragon
Brutal Legend
Gears of War 2
Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad
Overlord II
Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes
Terminator Salvation
Vampire Rain
Viva Pinata: Trouble In Paradise
Watchmen: The End is Night Parts I & II

NDS:
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
Overlord Minions
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time

PS3:
Ratchet & Clank: Future

PSP:
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
Dissidia: Final Fantasy
God of War: Chains of Olympus
Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier
Loco Roco 2
Secret Agent Clank
Star Ocean: Second Story'

Wii:
Mushroom Men
New Play Control! Pikmin
Overlord Minions

Overall, I spent about $450, and I ended up with those 25 games, a couple other extras I put aside for friends, and about $300 in GS credit and $350 in Amazon credit. I found some nice DS games to flip to Amazon (anything Disney, really, is a $5-->$9-10 flip, but I'll follow along with the "do your own damn research" that's the new attitude of this thread) so most of the actual flipped games were either garbage or POGs (or Kingdom Hearts! $21 at GS with bonuses), but $3.50->$10 flips are delicious.

Meet my gaming/blu ray budget for the summer. =)

EDIT: One thing I learned from this sale -- Amazon now limits you to trading in 3 copies of a game per several-month timespan. So, no more ten copies of KotoR at a time, as fun as that was!
