I went in looking for the BF3 guide, but no dice. I did score on a DAII LE and a Homefront LE so it wasn't a total loss.

Nope. It'll ring up $14.99; it was one of those guides that escaped penny-dropping.

Okay, added R&C and 007 to the SKUs. Also, I changed the title to "Reduced Price "Penny" Guide Thread XIV (FAQ in 2nd Post)" I think this will be a little more clear on what this thread is.

Quite a while back the title was changed from "penny guide" to "reduced guide" precisely so it wouldn't be blatantly advertised to lurkers. It would probably be a good idea to just leave it as "reduced guide".

Is there a time table for when guides get pennied or is it just random ? I would like for the rage guides to get dropped

Actually it's embedded in the word. I was unable to embed the rest through some strange glitch.

You guys are right. I will change the title back.

Thanks, DR. Considering how difficult obtaining guides has recently become any small advantage we can hold on to is good.

this thread only makes me sad b/c I won't ever get another penny guide except for trades. And if I do manage to find one, I'm buying a lottery ticket the same day! -tagged anyways b/c I'm not a quitter!!

I rarely find penny guides anymore. Last time I found one at GS I was denied. Best Buy let me have one but they were told to pull the rest immediatly. I might have to make a trip to see if I can find Red Faction, Battlefield 3 or AC: Brotherhood.

I got X-Men Destiny and Goldeneye Reloaded. They had two more X-Men, but I thought I'd be pushing it considering he was pushing me into pre-ordering or buying something with the guide.

I'm curious to ask this...

Years ago I use to buy a lot of guides. I collected them with games and have kept them throughout the years. Nowadays I buy them only sporadically.

Is there any way to check the perceived value on guides? I heard of people trading them into amazon as well.

I'd never get rid of anything in my personal collection I'm just wondering on what if any it's worth.

Amazon trade in values for guides can be extremely low. There are a few exceptions. If you wish to know the value of your guides, compare the SELLING price on Amazon and completed transaction prices on ebay.

There really isn't any exact place. The only thing would be to check the Amazon listings and completed auctions on eBay.

I might go check around today for the most recent drop, as I haven't gone out yet. The annoying thing here is that if I go too north I end up in another district, where apparently the DM is an absolute lockdown. I have found many guides in those stores, but I am always denied. They always explain that they will get fired if they don't cut the guides in to three pieces and mail them back to the publisher. Haven't bothered to check any dumpsters.

It was overflowing with guides . All of the Guides ( Except 3 , ME3 , Halo Anniwhatever and SF vs. Tekken ) had a line on the barcode and the barcode had a huge X scribbled on it , what does that mean if anything ?

Woh, please list all fo the guides with an x or barcode crossed out. Usually that means the merchant is getting rid of them. Don't know if they are offically pennied out in the system but when that happens in book stores, it mean they are end of life items.

the mods wouldn't let me do it lol. I emailed some pics to tesi yesturday since he didn't beleave me either. He was shocked :). As for new drops we should watch out for the Rage guide as its 9.99 now. It's only a matter of time before it gets pennied out and I really want a copy. You should have took all of those guides that you found or at least checked their price

That's because there are 2 barcodes, and this tells the cashier which one to scan (since the other wont work). Means nothing about them being pennied.
