I'm confused...maybe it's just worded wrong but "Save $10 on $59.99+ titles with two select trade ins"...? Sounds like it's saying you only get $10 for your trade ins. I think (and would hope) what it means is that you only PAY $10 for the game with two select trade ins. Otherwise...not such a great deal.

Yeah unless they are like 3-4 year old games getting $5/game is not a deal. I will laugh if it is new release type games and is really $10.

Generally it's the 2nd week of October. Though after being on CAG for a couple years, B2G1F sales just don't appeal to me much anymore. And with this year's crop of games getting a lot of movement into next year, seems even less important.

right ok im glad someone agrees, it seems like people are going crazy over this ce but this has to be the crappiest ce ive seen, im a sucker for ces, i have shit ton but i think getting this would be a waste of 30 bucks.


I'm of the same opinion...every Best Buy nearby has a bunch of the Prototype 2 CEs sitting there at $60, some even have the steelcase to throw in for free, but even at $30 after coupon I'm not feeling it. Most Best Buys around here also have the Mass Effect 3 CE at $49.99 IIRC for both X360 and PS3 so $30 AC, but again, it doesn't seem to be compelling enough given the trilogy bundle that is coming out (as well as the fact these appear to be far more abundant/overprinted than ME1 and ME2 CEs).

SPLASH!

It probably means you save $10 on the $59.99 games on top of whatever money you get for your trade-in.

Trading two games in to get a $10 off coupon would be pretty ridiculous.

Then it should be worded something like "Receive and ADDITIONAL $10 when you trade in two select games towards the purchase of any game $59.99 or more".

But yeah it either means that or it means the actual game only costs $10.

I am just not sure what you would want them to do. This is just a list of games I am interested. There are tons more to be released on PC, DS and Vita, not mention a brand new console. I just find it funny you think so many games got pushed 4-5 months that there is nothing for a B2G1 sale to mean anything.

Man, I really hope CAG follows Something Awful's lead one of these days and makes image macros bannable.

The sale does suck, though.


Honestly agree; its easily the second thread I've seen this guy post this in and it serves absolutely no point.

I don't participate in B2G1 sales either unless I have some form of credit or gift card. It's getting each game for $40, not much of a discount when you've been on here and see how fast games drop down to $20-30.

Half those games will be out AFTER the sale happens at TRU.

Take what you see and multiply it by 2. The site only lists the standard amount you would get.

FYI- some stores may differ in prices, but I haven't ever encountered that issue personally.

Thanks for that heads up. Does TRU let ppl double up duing that kind of deal? Like buy a copy of borderlands 2 for Xbox / ps3 ?

Yes you can double up. And the TRU in my area actually will let you ring up 3 different sets of games. Example, if you do 3 $20 games on at the same time as 3 $60 games, it will actually give you one of the 60s and one of the 20s free.
The only thing is if you do a place holder game, make sure you have them ring that game up first. I had heard an issue where they would not let people swap out the one game that was rang up as free. But every year I do a place holder game and I always make sure I have them scan that game first or second, then it goes in the bag and doesn't come out till the next tuesday where I swap it with that other game I wanted. Did this just about every year.

Yeah. Even the Uncharted 3 CE had that ring replica, the lil Nathan Drake statue and I think something else with it for $60. The Skyrim one has that f'n huge(but plastic:bomb:) dragon statue, a really nice faux leatherbound artbook that's thick and has some heft to it and even has that documentary DVD/Blu-Ray in the deluxe game packaging. Even the Bioshock 2 LE had a nice sized THICK artbook, a vinyl record with the soundtrack from the first game, a cd with the soundtrack from the second one and those faux vintage posters with the messages that showed up under black light on them.

I picked up two out of those three(missed the UC3 CE at every turn:bomb:) for around $80 total, sold the games back to BB or wherever for about $50-60 and got to keep some nice looking artbooks and other collectible stuff for $20-30.

Are BB Mobile stores the only ones that do trades?

If anything, I'd say that the mobile stores would be the ones NOT doing trades. Just look for your local BB store(s) on that list. Then read the descriptions under the section for trade-ins, as some stores may require that you bought the games from BB and still have the receipts when doing the trades.

Have not had a good deal on Gamer since July....are they seriously hoping we do not re-new?
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Really? I've bought a bunch of games this past year using the @Gamer coupons. Even though they never had a lower priced sale on stuff like Prototype 2, I still bought it this month with the coupon because it came out to a cheap rental after trading it back in.

But my GCU is up in very early October, so I have to really decide quickly if I want to renew, especially if I want to perhaps get the welcome packet again before Black Friday to be able to use the coupons then.;)
