The next step is that they are putting all $30+ games in the .99cent bin!

edit: but seriously. I just called my friend who is a manager at my local gamestop and he said the buy 5/10(ymmv?) for $1 is still going on but EVERYTHING(no matter the price) is suppose to be b2g2

all b2g2 would be decent if everything was not already acquired / overpriced (persona 4 is 18.02 atm fulfiment via amazon LINK) so even at b2g2 its not really a bargin

Just called my closest Gamestop. Said the 10/$1.00 games have been shipped off, that b2g2 is still going but still only 3.99 and less games.

We don't need B2G2, by the way. What we need is 75% off all like they had when they clearanced their PS1 games. I remember that stacking for a juicy 85% off every game, regardless of quantity. Already got my eyes on the overpriced Shadow Hearts and Fatal Frame games at my nearest store if that ever happens. :D

We as a community feel that it would be best if you didn't trade on here anymore. Despite your 350 positive transactions, I'm deactivating your account on 99Gamers because you offend me. I'm unrelatable, give poor customer service, and am now taking away your invested time and money because I don't like you.

Interestingly enough, the 10-for-$1 info was still on their website early this morning, but was much harder to track down, and the expiration date had been deleted. Now I can't find it at all on the website.

LMAO at me getting mad for Gamestop firing me. That's not a career and was a part time job 2nd to my full time job. Just stop already lol

And my friend's info wasnt true. I just called and the other manager was there, he said the 10 for $1 deal was done but the b2g2 for $3.99 and under was good. They are also starting to clear out the ps2 games and expect them all to be gone by next week. Least at that location



Hmm that conflicts with the website, I wonder if the stores still have the 10 for 1 deal, I got some final buys that I want to do before I'm truly done. :cry:

Edit: The Website took off the 10 for 1 officially so it's just a b2g2 free for 3.99 or less.

Just went to 3 stores here's the verdict:

First store had the signs for 10/$1 and B2G2 up. Got 8 games, all under $3.99. They did not ring up as B2G2. Manager had to hit some buttons and the receipt said "Promotion not Recognized" or something along those lines.

Second store had an employee (not the manager) literally scanning each PS2 disc only game to see if it was sellable or not, and throwing the non-sells in a box. He said a bunch of the PS2 games were not able to be sold, like old sports games and such, luckily my Colin McRae 3 was sellable. They had no signs up in the PS2 section and knew nothing about new promotions, but no 10/$1 or B2G2.

Third store tried to sucker me into buying more crappy games. It is what I call the "PS2 Hub" store, since they are one of the stores that receive the PS2 stock from other stores. Manager dude said both sales were strong, but the 10/$1 was basically wiped out and didn't have time or money to look for B2G2 ones, but he said both sales were still on at that store. We actually have a pretty decent PS2 community around that store as well, they actually still get a good amount of stuff traded in.

Looks like it could be YMMV on if you get the sale or not. No idea really, but if they go to $4 for everything under $10, I am gonna buy at least 10-12 more games. There is a lot of killer stuff in that range.

Hope he gets fired, a game like that should never be sleeve only. That has to be one lazy gamestop


Some Gamestop stores have thrown away all of the PS2 cases, regardless of price. They keep everything from the cheapo stuff to the expensive games in the sleeves. It's kinda annoying that the mint reprints (such as Nocturne) are now disc only games at some stores, so even if they go on sale they're no longer the complete and like-new copies they could have been.

It's all an issue of space. Since GS insists on facing every current gen title, they chew up wall space like crazy. They could easily have enough room for DS, PSP and PS2 cases even in the smaller stores.

I know GS would say there is some psychological reason for facing titles versus not, but I know I have these things called eyes and can read spines.

The odd thing is that some of the stores doing it are the ones with more store space and more than enough room to fit the PS2 boxes. The employee I talked to at the store told me he thought it was stupid but he said that they received an e-mail telling them to trash the cases.

A lot of the Need for Speed games are $10 I know Hot Pursuit and UnderGround for a fact.
X-Men legends 1/2
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Ratchet and Clank games
Tomb Raider Legend/Anniversary
Rogue Galaxy
Star Ocean Till the End of Time
Odin Sphere

A lot depends on what your store has in stock, that's just some stuff I checked online real quick.

Yeah, and the worst part is... they waste so much space on GS marketing displays (I would hope) no one pays attention to.

The store's whole mentality is anti-people who take care of their stuff. Of course, we're the minority and therefore less buying power in their mind but still sucks.

One of the four nearby locations that still has PS2 games in Long Island said they were tossing the lot of remaining $4 and under PS2 games they had on-hand in the dumpster at the end of the day today. In the interim, all $0.99 titles were ringing up for just 2 cents. Anything above $1 through $3.99, however, was not ringing up as B2G2.

There wasn't much left to write home about in the early afternoon, but it's still a shame. They didn't have any titles over $3.99, save for a single copy of DDR Supernova 2, so it is probably not a huge loss for anyone looking for something rare, but still.

Seems like what stores may do with prices and stock could be a bit YMMV at this point.

All games auto-priced to .02 per game <=.99. In other words, trash. We had to maul our collection on some Triple H stuff w/ the sledge so no one can go dumpster diving and collect treasure

I dislike that Gamestop pitches everything, they pitch game cases all the time, shit if they have a disc only of a hard to find game, I don't care if the case is for a different game.

When I worked there, I saw the phasing out of PS1 games, and we never once had to bring them to a dumpster and smash them. I can't believe that's the shit that GS is doing now. I know they were mostly sports games, but it just seems... unnecassary.

I totally agree, my girlfriend was wondering why not give it to charity. Even old sport games, they will be worth it to poor children out there. Or even have it out as a bonus if you buy a PS2 game in the future, buy 2 and you can get 2 other games from that bin? :wall:

I thoguht the exact same thing. I would have donated them to charity and from all the hate I see on GS around the internet, a little goodwill wouldn't hurt them sometimes...

Hell, if I was in your position I would have put it in my car and driven to goodwill...

They really need to drop the prices on these other ps2 games. NHL 08 is 7.99, nuff said

I also saw two great condition complete copys of ico at my Gamestop which shocked me to say the least

Anyone think that with what looks like a purge of PS2 games that they will put some systems on sale? I never owned one before but took part on this sale and borrowed my brother-in-laws old PS2 that he doesn't play. Would like to buy my own in the future, but I don't see paying $60 for a slim model.
