How is the fitbit? It piqued my curiosity when I saw it and never heard of it before.


It seems pretty nice. It was for the wife and she really seems to like it. We've just had it a couple of days, but no issues so far. I don't know that I would have paid $99 for it, but hey, keeping the wife happy is always priority one :D

I heard from internal sources that BB plans to increase the amount of used games in stores by 60%. Apparently, the company that handles the games once they are traded in has an overload of games at their warehouses that are going to be in stores by February

I'm not sure about that though you are correct that the previous company could not keep up with the volume. Would be awesome if they were just sitting on a bunch of games and starting getting those back in the stores.

The amount of used games a store will stock is dependent upon how many are traded in and how many used games are sold at that store. They also put into account how many trade ins a store takes compared to how many games (new and used) they sell. The average store has to take in 5-6 trade ins a day to hit the expected goal. On top of that they compare it to the district so if other stores are killing the store you go to in trade in units/% and used game sales then maybe less games going there. There is also no indication if its measured but popularity for the games or number of units (if 1 copy of MW3 is equal to 5 random PS2 games or something).

There is no exact formula they are admitting to but they put all of these things into account. Store I'm at has been averaging 1st-3rd in the district in both trade in units/% and used games sold and you can name any game released since August and we've had it used though its a bit uneven. We are sitting on like 10 Batman:AC for PS3 but only seen 1-2 for xbox but on the contrast we constantly in stock with MW3 for xbox but only had 1-2 in for the ps3 ever.

Damn waiting on another sale on MGS HD. I did the unbelievable and finally caught up on my backlog. Feels so nice to feel like I may consider buying a game at MSRP just for the sake of playing it instead of forcing a game on myself. Its been over a year now since ive felt that way.

no need to wait it's perm price dropped to $35 @ PC Richard & Sons. You could also alert AMZ if PCR doesn't work for you.

As far as I know we will price match it. So it is a very good deal at the moment. And with the promotion on Xbox Live 12 months you can also pick that up for $20 right now when you buy the system. So $370 plus tax for a Kinect 250 system, Kinect Sports 2, Fitbit (normally $100) and a year of xbox live. Even if you don't want the fitbit itself you could sell it later to someone or online at Ebay or the like. All together that is $660 worth of stuff for $370. So all in all a very good deal.

So they definitely take the coupon for games that are on sale like WWE 12? Or is it kind of a YMMV thing depending on the cashier?

30 bucks for the game sounds good to me.

The coupon is for $10 off so it'll be $30 and not $20.

Yea, it'll scan but it can also be YMMV. If the cashier reads the coupon carefully and knows the game is on sale and refuses to scan it. Most of the time they'll just scan away.

Shouldn't be YMMV anymore since the backs now state 'Markdowns taken from sale prices'

There's nothing wrong with saving money, lol. I'm slowly working through my backlog. I'm currently playing through Forza 4, and that's going to take me a while to finish it. I won't be buying games for a while.

Alright how come NHL 12 never goes on sale? It was one of the only games during Black Friday this year that never went on sale. I saw it for 40 dollars only one time and nothing since then. WTF.

Edit: It's 49.99 on Amazon, but I'm not buying until it hits 39.99.

Word. Nothing wrong with saving money on our games.

It's just dangerous to buy up so many games with the ineveitable price drop creating such a backlog that they get to a point that you were better off waiting to buy one when you were actually ready to play it (and buy it cheaper).

I know exactly what you mean. My buy point for most games is $20 and under. I'm quite cheap since I'm saving up for my car.

I got it at BB when it was on sale for $40 but I used the b2g1 coupon from the unlocked pack so $27 was good ENUF for me LOL.

Finally a sale on Revelations but at $39.99. I'm still bummed that the cashier wouldn't let me use my coupon when it was on sale for $29.99. I hope it hits that price again before the coupon expires, but i doubt it.

Won't work as this would involve "Double Dipping". In other words you can't price match and then use a coupon. At least that's how it is at my BB.

I wish they'd drop Black Ops pre-owned to $19.99, so I could use the $15 off coupon and get it for $5 since my one buddy has never played through the campaign for it. I already finished it myself when I got a copy from a Gamestop double code stacking glitch over a year ago, then promptly traded it off someplace once I was done.

Same deal with the other games that have pre-owned $$$ off coupons in this month's @Gamer mag(Crysis 2, etc), since $10 or under is my buy price for pre-owned shit. Then again, I shoulda likely just kept the copy of Crysis 2 that I traded for with someone who got in on the Amazon penny game thing.

Either way, these sales aren't really that bad, though Rayman Origins is still currently $19.99 at TRU. So you'd be better off getting that there this week.

Wow, yeah I just looked at their pre-owned price for BlOps out of curiousity...Fuck-ing ridiculous! $15 off $40 is still too much! I'd be in for $5-10, though. I'll have to keep an eye out for a price drop. :shock:

It WAS $24.99 for a while, but for some reason they jacked it back up.:roll: I think they raised the price when the newer version of the game came out with some sort of DLC pack included in new copies.

Too bad they wouldn't allow a PM of Gamestop's current sale price($20.99) and then allow the coupon to still be used.;)

Rayman Origins is $30 regular price now at GameStop (and of course on sale at TRU for $20)

weak on Best Buy to put it on "sale" for $40
