Exactly. But people will keep posting and getting hyper wondering why they haven't dropped yet all weekend and come Monday they'll be too tired from running back and forth to the stores price checking them to even bother looking for them on the day they should be dropping.

Although I will say that BOTH local BB stores had ZERO of the guides on this list as of Monday and yesterday when I checked both stores. Their guide racks were rather sparse and mostly included recent stuff like Battlefield 3 and such.


I'm just waiting for somebody to ask whether these guides have pennied out before anybody has actually even confirmed anything despite what Lox posted :/

I'm waiting for the angry 'zomg I went to the store and brought up 100 guides that were on the list and NONE of them were pennied:bomb::bomb::bomb::bomb::bomb::bomb:' responses personally cuz you know they'll happen.

Someone will see the list Lox posted, see Best Buy and not skim the rest of the thread after that post and rush out to the store.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Went to a Bestbuy over lunch and all of the listed guides from Lox were no where to be found.

However, I did see 2-3 copies of Madden 11 and a Dead Rising 2 guide that are listed in a previous penny drop... and I didn't realize this until I got back to my desk from lunch...

Looks like I'll be making another trip there after work...

San Carlos store was pre-pulled confirmed just today.

Although i did spot a MW3 Hardened edition for Xbox but it still hasnt been marked for clearance below the MSRP.

Saw 5 Uncharted 3 CEs there though.

Starting to think I might need to stash/hide any guides I want (if they are still there) at my local store. Chances are that they are probably already pulled.

I should have known this on Tuesday, the shelves were barren of guides and the district rep who does the pulls was there, it just didn't click. I'm now told they were already 'shipped back'.

From the posts here though, this wasn't a drop but a pull.

Yep. The gaming rep sorta confirmed they did a pull of guides. I just wonder if they'll end up at that flea market place in Pittston in a couple of months.

Store closest to me had all of those guides gone, and just a week ago they had tons.

Did pick up 3 Madden NFL 11 and one Dead Rising 2 at a different store.

I said it before. I'll say it now. OH NO. THE END OF PENNIED GUIDES!!!!!

EDIT: Seriously, I don't know why it would take so long to put an end to guides ringing up as a penny.

Like I said before when we had a bit of a drought with penny guides at BB, someone really needs to dub the words penny guides over the words 'the world' in the R.E.M. song "It's The End Of The World(As We Know It)" and post that bitch up in here.;)

Also, is it wrong that I imagined Bruce from Family Guy's voice when I read that OH NO in your post?

shi*t, I was at one this weekend, had to snap a pic to show what they did to fill the space. Definitely a pre-pull, and when this happens 98% of stores actually do this. Last time was only able to find one store, but what I left was pulled or grabbed by the next day..

Just woke up, was trying to decide if I should go to the close BB that has fewer guides to start with, or the one 7mi down the road that's got a little bigger game section. :) I'll report back in a while.

Hey lox, just wondering if you heard anything more about that pre-pull last month? Are all those guides still at full price?

I am wondering if we finally see the death of penny guides at Best Buy...
I pre-bought two CE guides 'just in case' but will have to return them shortly.

Here's some confirmation for Best Buy:
Couldn't find MK LE or DAII LE guides but had them look up in RSS, and both those show $.01
On the other hand, I found resistance 3 and white knight chronicles II and both of those rang up full price even though they on the list.

Good job on buying pre-pull. All stores I had them check in RSS around CT and parts of NY and NJ are all showing 0 inventory.

Interesting, guess I'll go try my luck on a return / rebuy.
I had picked up Assassin's Creed Brotherhood LE and Dragon Age II LE when lox first posted the list. Not sure what I'll do if I don't swing the exchange since I'm quite interested in both guides...
