Tales of the Abyss has been removed from the website altogether, along with Binary Domain. Best Buy fails yet again.

Lame!!! I was so excited to know that people were gonna pick up Abyss at such a great price, and then they remove it from the list....

BB has been a mess for me lately, they've been "sold out" of Pokemon Conquest for a week and I haven't been sent any kind of notice as to why. -_-

Odd, Lollipop is back up to $59.99 and they removed it from the list of $20 off games. Good thing it's still on the flyer.

I think those games are supposed to be in the sale but since they can't update prices usually until after the store close they will just remove them from the site.

I got hyped for Binary Domain, really wanted it. BTW - my good friend went to BB and it was almost cleaned out (he got the last copies of Red Dead and FF13-1). Be warned in advance. :)

Just a heads up, I was able to get Lollipop Chainsaw for forty bucks when I showed them their flyer. It scanned for regular price.

Binary Domain will be $20 by the end of the summer. It sold HORRIBLY in the US and is a complete flop for Sega. Not sure about the Tales game... it's a very niche audience that plays those kind of games and they probably don't have to drop the price any time soon.

Same thing happened with me. Dark Souls scanned at $20 but Lollipop scanned at $60. The cashier IMMEDIATELY noticed that it should be on sale. I didn't even have to say anything. He just grabbed a flyer and double checked the price and manually changed it.

I got you beat. I managed to get it at $30. The BB I went to changed the price for the game where you pick up cards for new games. Was listed at 39.99, but scanned at 59.99. I quickly brought up the SCOP law and they dropped it down at 39.99 - 10.

Nice deal. I wasn't sure for $40, but $30 felt like the sweet spot for me. Pretty sure it now scans at the correct price since they have updated BB.ca since then.

I was fairly confident when they scanned it that it would still show up at 59.99 since the website had yet to be updated.

Wow, I was hoping to get Arkham City, but it just flew off the shelves. I went by two Best Buys yesterday in the afternoon and both were sold out. If anyone sees a copy near or in Toronto, I'd greatly appreciated being pointed in its direction.

What is this SCOP Law you're talking about? Scanner Canadian O Policy? I can't google for it.

I saw a few copies yesterday afternoon at the Best Buy @ Eglinton/Warden. They were in an odd location though...closer to the TVs, on the bottom of a side DVD/Blu Ray showcase display. From what I remember it was the only game in that location; the rest of the PS3 games were either in the front display right when you get in, or with the normal stacks.

Someone could likely explain it better than I but, here it goes.

If a product is advertised at a certain price (sale or not) and it scans at the wrong price at checkout, by law, the retailer has to sell you the product at the advertised price -10%. If the product is less then 10$, the client gets it for free.

It's pretty rare for clerks to apply the law themselves though, it's likely they either are not aware of it or are specifically told by their managers to avoid it is the client doesn't bring it up.

Oh and SCOP stands for Scanning Code Of Practice

Thanks, I did see those, but I should have mentioned I'm looking for a 360 copy.

It's $10 off, not 10% (I imagine you probably just mistyped).

SCOP isn't actually a law, it's a voluntary policy. Most large retailers in Canada will adhere to it though; you should see a notice posted somewhere in the store if they do.

Keep in mind that it ONLY applies to items that are not stickered with a price.

Indeed, curse these blasted fat fingers of mine. And I was sure it was a law here in Quebec, I guess I was mistaken.

I believe it is a law in Quebec (as part of the provincial competition act) but nowhere else in the country.

If I liked Vesperia (the only Tales game I've played) would I enjoy Abyss?
