Checked my store and they had a ton of PS2 games (disk only) but the only games eligible for the 10 for $1 were sports games. Oh well.

The only cheap games around me that I'd want are Okage and Marc Ecko Getting Up. That's honestly not worth the gas for me. Anyone know when they are going to have the "real" firesale? I've been eying the Silent Hill and Fatal Frame games for a minute now.

Stopped by my GS today since they finally got in a copy of Silpheed: The Lost Planet from another store and ended up grabbing a couple random things I found quickly for the 10-for-$1 deal.

Aggressive Inline
Choro Q
Fantavision
Freestyle Metal X
Future Tactics: The Uprising
Freekstyle
Hard Hitter Tennis
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Rebel Raiders: Operation Nighthawk
Silpheed: The Lost Planet

I asked the guy I know there well enough if any more deals were planned after this week. He said the 10-for-$1 was going on "for a while" but that's all I could get out of him.

I was told at my local Gamestop the deal was ongoing until they got rid of their PS2 games. Has anyone else heard this?

That sucks, I was going to get Fatal Fury Battle Archives 2, but I can't find the time within two days. All those poor gems gone... only to be reobtained with 3.99 shipping. :(

Looks like I'll make one trip to my local Gamestop and get some Dynasty Tactics.

I can confirm the $.99 games as I was just in my local GS and told this. Not sure about the $2-$4 games though.

Went to 2 more today to pick through what they had and both places said trashed after Monday. One though just marked all sleeve games to .99 so got some "rarer" stuff P4 and P3 as well as all Jak games and DMC games. Figure since I have them they will go to the boys/girls club in town for tax write off.

nice guy he was.
I think gamestop should 99 cent all these bad boys.
and also, they should just give the 99 centers away to loyal ps2 buyers instead of just junking them.

Wow I wonder if they will really pitch them all. I wonder if they could take a flat offer for whatever they were going to junk.

Or they can just donate all 99c games to Goodwill or a local Boys/Girls Club. It'll be a sheer waste to destroy them. But let's not talk about wasteful it is. :lol:

Monday night at the RE6 midnight launch, they had PS2 games .99 and under, for ten for one dollar. I got sixty games for six bucks. No duplicates. No EA Sports. Matrix, Naruto, Eternal Ring, a number of racers. Hey, if there's one game in there worth six bucks, it was a deal. Also grabbed Soul Calibur II for $2.99 as part of their buy 2 get 2 free deal for $3.99 and under.

Depends on the employees and your relationship with the employees. By the book employees will smash them/toss them, no exceptions because GS told them to. Ones a little easier going will have no problem with you being the garbage can since the end result is essentially the same. If you are a constant customer, they would be more apt to give them to you too.

Going to try my luck at one store that had about 200 loose discs that I stop at once a week. I'll take loose if they're free.

Got to watch the way they ring the games up but I was able to get 3 stacks of 10 for 1 dollar games at one store along with buy 2 get 2 free, the store manager easily messed up and rang up several of the same games twice. At least he was able to fix it but that Gamestop was on the furthest side of town. My mall store and the store by my house, I pretty much wiped out all I could find, leaving most of the sports games to sit. Will add a list later, I have very few duplicates in my stack as well.

I refuse to believe that they had Persona 4 and Persona 3 for .99
