Did anyone return and rebuy the games they bought for 5/$1 recently to save some more $ because of this new promotion?

I may be cheap, but that is really fucking cheap.

The dudes I talked to at Gamestop were just tired of the sale, best part was that they have been taking $2 or $3 worth of crap sports games every night to the Best Buy across the street to swap...Best Buy guy does the same thing...

I figure the employees may be asses about it, depends on how much you go in and how well they know you though.

The prices will drop again. They're aiming to move the titles that aren't moving right now. My Gamestop is full of great titles, but they are not for sale. I'd love to clean out their stock of Final Fantasy X and Kingdom Hearts.

Yeah, either lowering the prices or extending something like the B2G2 to higher-priced games is the next logical step. They're gonna find some way to get people to take them off their hands one way or another.

Well, I read some were able to find and buy alot of 99 cent games. For these individuals, returning and rebuying may be worth the time.

I would it funny if Gamestop wasn't able to sell their entire stock and would have to keep it until the games were considered Vintage or Rare. Just like what they're planning to do with the old games they had kept for so long. :lol:

I'd be blowing more than $3 in gas to get back to the GS where I got my games, so that's a big no on rebuying.

Stopped at an out of the way store tonight. Slim pickings, but still managed to find:

10/$1
Choro Q
Lethal Skies II
Stolen
Hidden Invasion
Hunter The Reconing: Wayward
Eve of Extinction
Top Gear Daredevil
HSX: HyperSonicXtreme
Freestyle
Sno Cross 2

And what I thought was B2G2:
Stuntman Ignition ($1.79 PUR)
My Street ($1.79 PUR)
Space Race (tagged $2.99 rang up as $.09 PUR)
Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions (tagged $2.99 rang up as $.09 PUR)

On top of that, I found a complete copy of Romancing Saga for $5.39 PUR.

Out the door with all of the above for $10.56 including tax.

There was also a copy of Disgaea for $15. I passed because I already have a copy, but it reminded me to start making a list for the stuff I still want to get. Once these are no longer available at GS, it will be a crapshoot finding them anywhere except ebay.

The flea market folk have done cleaned out the cheap selection where I live. They'll resale those games $2.50 each.

Wii U is coming. Those stores will need more space. Patience is key here. Maybe we'll see some Wii deals soon too. :applause:

So I just returned/rebought my 40 games from last week and got 30 more. I ended up walking out with a trade card with $35 on it. Guy said I glitched their machine and didn't want to dick with it. So got paid ~$20 (removing what I paid for the original 40 and then some) to take 70 games off their hands. Lol. Works for me.

Nice!:applause:

I returned and rebought 7 games from recent purchases along with 13 other games that I was mildly interested in at 1 GS tonight. I felt bad for the GS employee because she had to type in the actual purchase price of those 7 games. I plan to fill out the GS survey with high scores.

I don't know if it's just me, but many of these games were so cheap in the first place I never bothered to look at them. It doesn't make much difference to me getting a game for $1 versus $0.10 although I guess I could be missing out on some gems.

I'm really hoping we see some type of B2G2 on the higher priced games again. That pretty well cleared out the stock of anything good last time but it's been long enough that there are a few lingering out there worth getting.

I wish they'd do this clearout on the Gamecube games too. Every time I go looking at those there is a ton of junk like the sports games that could clear out.

That would suck if I passed up some rare games just because the price tag was old.

Man wish they'd start dropping stuff on the higher priced games, I managed to find a store that has Haunting Ground (with case too!) Reserved it and am picking it up tomorrow, maybe I can find some of the cheaper stuff if it's not all been yanked up (hopefully I can find Siren too).

I still have a copy of The Guy Game for both PS2 and Xbox, but one of them has a Movie Gallery security sticker on the top of the disc.:-# I still laugh that GS used to take that game in, but would not take in the AO original version of San Andreas on PS2.

Real titties and an underage chick in the game=OK
Fake animated sex=horrible and reprehensible

Speaking of real boobs in a game, BMX XXX with the Scores strippers in it is a $2.99 game.;)

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Damn. How many games did you get for $20? It's too bad I've already hit the two stores that don't seem to care that I'm 'omg banned', as the only other ones with stock showing for this blowout sale seem to be the ones where they know I'm not allowed in.:cry: It just so happens that those are also the stores with the biggest selection.#-o

Yeah, I didn't really look at the stock available in the area before I went. The hunt is part of the fun for me. This store had tons of sleeved games and it took awhile to go through them. I'm not going to take a huge pile up to the desk to have them price checked, if it's a title I really want I'll just get it even if it's not part of the promo. That said, if I'd known at the time I would have picked up other $1.99 games instead.

When was the last time you tried going in? Maybe you could just walk in like no big deal and they wouldn't bother. Just avoid drawing attention to yourself. I had a similar situation. I just waited for awhile and then one day walked in and started shopping. They never said a word.
