Question about Mod nation racers.. is it the vanilla one or the GH version and did they fix some of the issues this game had from before?

^I've wondered this also. I bought it at launch and i nearly snapped the disc in half. I heard later that a patch fixed all the rubberbanding and stuff that ruined the games.

(unrelated musing - patches are nice, but i wonder how many games will go down in history as being bad or buggy even though they were fixed - Bayonetta(ps3) and Dead Island come to mind)

I wish one of my TRU had that NCAA game. I'd do the same as ChunLiBarbie. Nice find!

Derrick1979 and nbballard the Modnation Racers game is the original launch edition. I know this because it had a code for the little big planet sackboy skin. Apart from long load times the game runs well.

Not sure how exciting or relevant it is now, but I found :ps3: 50 Cent: Blood On The Sand for $9.98.
And yes, I did jump over that big ass ramp.

Walked into TrU yesterday and picked up the POWER A Media Expansion Bar for PS3 Slim for $2 on clearance, ymmv. Sticks out a bit further than I'd like, but looks alright. http://www.amazon.co...35459161&sr=8-1

Oh, man, I wish I'd been looking at this thread a month ago. I bet it's impossible to find that Brotherhood CE now - I checked one Toys R Us near me and I got so excited when I saw they had two 360 versions, but no PS3. Too bad it isn't in their system anymore, either, because the associate I asked was really helpful and wanted to help me find one :(

They had a lot of decently priced/clearanced DS/3DS/PSP accessories, though. Cases, styli, etc, almost everything under $10 and a lot of it under $2. I almost got a new shell case with a games compartment for my Lite for $1, but passed on account of already having one anyway.

I got one of those for the same price about 2 weeks ago. I'm happy with it.

I might go looking for one of these at $2, can't go wrong.

In my case, I have one of these I got used from a friend:

I haven't tried it with my PS3 slim yet, so it won't bother me if I don't find that Power Media Bar. Probably have to use an USB extension cord to make fit.

There's a Brotherhood PS3 SE at my local TRU just around the corner. I would have bought it had I not already got it from Gamestop last year.

Saw lost planet 2 (ps3) for 9.98 at my local tru. I definitely recommend it for online coop. It's better than RE5, IMO.

I obviously agree LP 2 is fantastic, but isn't that MSRP?

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

It was $20 when I bought the Xbox version a couple weeks ago. Made sure to get the cheaper used version, obviously

They had PS2 games at $10 MSRP. I haven't seen any this generation.

Last game I can recall was Castle of Shikigami.

Found Professor Layton Last Specter DS $19.98

Not amazing, but good considering that series was slow to discount the first 3, and it works with b1g1 40%.
Maybe it's just my TRU, but they had barely any sub-$20 games, clearance or msrp. They used to have a ton. Maybe they sold them to big lots or something.

YMMV, but a TRU I stopped at today had a tiny sign up saying all Clearance Wii Games were 20% off and stated that games marked $9.98 would be $7.98.

I found Centipede Infestation on Wii (<3 WayForward!) and De Blob 2 on PS3, both of which were marked $9.98, and the clerk manually marked both down to $7.98! :D

So lame. I thought I hit the jackpot with Professor Layton Curious Village (rare game). All 7 of them locked up, asked an employee (it took me half an hour to find one lol ) for a price check (price marked at $24.9X, but it should be under $10 by now) and it displays "No item Found." So lame. I was hoping to pick two copies with the B1G1 40% off.

edit. I'm surprised this TRU still has the Eyetoy Play 2 Bundle in-stock for $9.9X.

Why should it be under 10? It has hit 10 before?

I'm hoping it is, or should be under $10 by now for a 4yr old DS game. This is same TRU where I got NCAA Basketball 2010 / Dragon Quest IV DS (ranged up $9.9X each) which were locked behind the window with their original price sticker for $39.9X / $29.9X. That's why I asked for a price check for Curious Village which showed up "No item Found" and I'm assuming it got clearance off the system.
