Went to my local GS, I haven't stepped into any GS in years, and it was CUH-RAYZIE!! Tons of people jammed in there with a long line. Even with all the craziness going on one of the employees, an extremely pretty young lady, took the time to help me find the games I was looking for... looking behind the counter and taking the cases from me to find the discs. Just mentioning this to share my story because it's really hard to find good helpful people now-a-days it seems.

Anyways, my goal was to build my newly acquired PS3's library.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma
The Club
MGS4

Bioshock
Uncharted 1
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

LBP GOTY
Motorstorm Pacific Rift
Heavenly Sword

Maybe not the best deal out there but not bad either!

My gamestop had 15 ds games with the cases left. Ds games are just sooooo slim around here. Of course they were the shitty movie games, petz and barbie games.

Also picked up
.dot hack part 1(ps2)
Bionic commando (360)
Chronicles of riddick (360)

The last buy 2 get 1 free I bought dot hack part 2, 3, 4 and was hoping that the first one was still there by the time I got payed and it was. Now I gotta get the other 3 .dot hack games and I will have them all. Those are very hard to find I found them at one gamestop ,but I went ahead and bought the shining force games instead. Going to another town to try to find the others at a Gamestop and swing in there play n trade as well.

Which are the good rpgs for ps2? I am getting into ps2 gaming late.

I was told they're being slowly phased out. Hence the extra 10 percent off that stacks with PUR and B2G1. I bought about a dozen a couple weeks ago when they had the B2G1...some hard to find RPGs that were all complete and near mint.

Probably not the worst time to shore up any loose ends in your PS2 collection if you're into that sort of thing.

Their return period is actually through Jan. 15th for holiday purchases. Not sure if Dec. 26th - on after purchases qualify though.

Really? During the last B2G1 (the Power Saver one) I was looking through my receipts and didn't see anything for used games being extended. Might have overlooked it though. That's good to know, though.

My 2 local GS confirmed it. But again, not sure if any purchases after Xmas count.

I want to pick up Heavy Rain (it's $45 in store instead of $35 online)... anything else people would recommend for the :ps3:?

GT5?
Dead Rising 2?
Castlevania LOS?

I don't know man...

Anyone know if Assasin's Creed Brotherhood and Blackops for X360 and PS3 are the same price in-store as online?


Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it can be YMMV dependent on the store. You can always call them to find out? Like my statement above, Heavy Rain is $45 in my closest store while it's $35 online. And 2 of my games I picked up yesterday were $27 while they are $25 onilne.

I don't see why this would be a problem. :)

With receipt in hand and within the return period, they should have no reason to deny your return (cash if paid in cash, store credit if paid with GS credit). The only issue is when you by a new/gutted new game, they make sure you didnt open it before they issue a return.

I have done return/rebuy many times when there are sales while I am within their return policy and they are more than happy to ring it up.

In store is almost always a few bucks more expensive than online. You can always find the in-store price online by clicking on the pick up at store button and it will list both online and instore prices.

Too bad it's not open today, otherwise picking up Knights in Nightmare DS, and Star Ocean 1 & 2 for 25 after PUR and rewards coupon would be a pretty great deal.

Really hoping I can still return the used Demon's Souls I bought roughly a week ago for credit, then buy it back as part of this deal. I need to bolster my anemic PS3 library.

Yeah if you EVER buy PC game that is opened sold as new, they WILL NOT take it back. I figured this might have been the case before I bought the Witcher, but really wanted it.

Only reason I had attempted to return it is because there were some other games I wanted more @ the time. Also they dropped the price on the sale to $14.99 & the bitches wouldn't even give me the difference back. W/e...

I would work on my PS3 library, but only thing I'd be now are RPG's as there aren't really any rare PS3 games perse (@ least not that I'm aware of).

Mainly been focusing on Wii & DS games.

Since this sale started on Christmas Eve, my GS's are already wiped off all the decent Wii/DS games thanks to parents buying their kids crap last minute.

What I REALLY want is online only right now...& that's Mega Man Collection & Mega Man X Collection. X Collection is in stock maybe half the time. Gonna wait for that to get back in stock to jump on it.

Not really defending them but the new games they open and sell as new at least have not been played

Toys R' Us has display cases that're slimmer than the standard game cases with coverart marked 'display only' on them and as such don't have a need to open up product and make those copies USED in order to get display boxes. Yet Gamestop, the biggest game retailer in the country, just uses their tired method of opening new copies of games for the display boxes.

But you know what, here's an experiment for you to try sometime. Buy a new/sealed game(one that you know you really want anyway) and open it right in front of them in the store. Then ask to return it. See what they say.

Chances are they'll say something to this effect:

"You opened that game, so we can't give you your full money back now, you can only get the trade in value for it."

Funny how things don't work both ways, huh? They can open and use the real game cases on the shelf as display boxes, but if you open a still sealed game it's 'used' and can only be traded back in.

Oh and as StripesOrBars above me said the employees used to be able to take home the games and try them out. Although from talking with a few GS employees I was told that they're only allowed to do this on USED copies of those games, but I'm sure more than a few have taken home the new copies before.:-#

Here's to hoping I can find complete and neat copies
