Just went into two BBY today. Every copy in both stores were an absolute mess. I was talking to the game adviser and he was even pissed at how some of these CE's get handled, heh.


I wonder how they get like that. Do people come in, pick them up and throw them around? Even day 1 they looked a little rough.

This is a CE that I'd be a little worried about buying from a store regardless; it is one of those that would be very easy to open, gut, and place the safety seal stickers back in place and then return.

I heard that after the store closes the BB employees stack them up and do dramatic recreations of the game q*bert

Is tales worth getting at $15? or hold out for cheaper?

I just recently got back into JRPGs (last time i played one was back on PS1)

at frys i watched two non-employees open up the ce box, take out the art book and statue to look at them and talk shit about the quality, and then toss the stuff back in the box and leave it on the sales floor.

BBY will definetely have it cheaper but their boxes look like someone slept inside them & then decided to jump around in sleep.


You aren't kidding. I went to the most ghetto of all local BBs earlier today - in the back of my mind thinking I might get lucky on that $59.99 someone saw last week. They had 5 CEs for the 360...and every last one of the boxes looked like it lost a catfight to Courtney Love on a bender.

Just pulled the trigger for Skyrim 360.

It may go down $20 or so, but I am ok with spending $80.

It is well worth the price. Very lengthy campaign and a good story (weakest plot wise out of the tales games, but still a good). The battle system is dynamic and fun, offering many different play styles by jumping in and out of different characters.

The 2nd closest BB to me only has one Skyrim CE left and it looks bad. There's a couple others with it available, but I've only seen one I'd want to actually buy, and that store is 90 minutes away. This started at $150, so $80 was good to me. My total was 159.98 shipped (ordered 2 for 360). One of these I'm keeping. The other...I'll sell eventually.

If it drops again I might pick up another for the PS3.

I'm considering selling the CE game and just waiting for the GOTY game to take it's spot. I don't know though. For now I'll probably hold onto my copy.

Well,
It's guaranteed to drop in price now, because I just ordered one.

I figured it will probably drop to around $60 at some point, but since I just sold something on eBay, and could use the Paypal funds, I'm OK with the extra $20.
It's like trading some old stuff for Skyrim.

Plus I'll get to list my dragon on eBay before everyone who picks it up for $60 floods the market.
