Exactly, and look at how many versions came out before the keyboard. They saturated the market for a long time with the same gameplay, instruments, etc.

Unfortunately Gamestop(and many other chains) idea of recycling is tossing shit in the dumpster.


Not sure how it is elswhere, but in Indiana it is illegal to put electronic devices in the garbage. If it is illegal in your area you may bring this up trying to get some free stuff.

Guitar/Rock Band games are awesome because girls love them!

+1
Though they don't get played as much as before. Beatles RB still makes it into the rotation
Just Dance pretty much took over as the party game

Was actually hoping to hear success stories of people getting free controllers.

Been wanting to turn my RB1 controller into a Stompbox controller to use in Rocksmith. But would prefer to practice on a throwaway controller. Oh well.

I entered this thread hoping to read about some cool stories of CAGs scoring merchandise in a dark back alley dumpster - sadly, not many have been successful.

As a kid I used to dive behind my local Kmart quite a bit in the early 80's. Would sometimes score some star wars or gi joe stuff and be happy as a pig in shit.

Now that I realize how dangerous it is, I don't think I could do it again. All it takes is one dirty needle to get hep-c, or a scrape or cut could land you a serious staph infection. Happy guitar hunting folks, but stay safe.

Be discreet about this, people. If corporate found out about managers giving stuff away that was supposed to be field destroyed they could lose their jobs.

Most stuff here would get picked really fast, you can put anything out in the alley here, and it will be picked in a couple hours almost guaranteed. I guess there are people who cruise the alley's all the time looking for people's unwanted trash. They are probably picking it and gutting it for scrap metal. Also its not illegal to throw out electronics here, but I am pretty sure its illegal to dumpster dive, especially on private property. All the dumpsters are marked private property here with a sign saying that trespassers will be prosecuted or something similar, IMO not worth it for whatever crap GS is throwing out.
