Also yeah is the promo still working? I want to transfer a few games but nobody here currently working knows how.

Posted in the B1G1 50% off ps2 thread exactly how to get a transfer.

Just a heads up, by lying and acting like you work for gamestop to get a transfer done you are jeopardizing the employees at the gamestop receiving the games. They get in trouble with their DM's for doing low yield transfers. That is why it is at their discretion whether or not they will do a transfer.

considering gs probably gave pennies on the dollar on the ps2 games, not too worried (dot hack part 4 alone is $44.99)

You seem to be missing the point and illogically rationalizing your actions. TIVs are set by Gamestop Corporate, not Gamestop employees. You are advocating fooling Gamestop employees and getting the unaware transfer recipient Gamestop employees into trouble just because you have the transfer protocol down.

Your whole argument is that they can get in trouble for 'low yield' transfers. When ONE of the games is $44.99. I doubt they will get in trouble when they picked it up for $5 or so. Making $40.
If it was a $2 game sure, also... how will the employee get in trouble? THEY didn't make the transfer request, don't get mad at me for gamestop protocol flaws.

Not to mention the stores near here have a looping video advertising that they do transfers. If they get in trouble for doing what their company advertises then maybe they work for the wrong company.

Yeah well, they have rules about it. No point in transferring a $0.99 gamecube broadband adapter from New York to Cali if the shipping costs them $8 and the customer will only pay $0.25 after discount right? So when you go to ask them for that to happen, they reserve the right to say "No" (and they are told to say "No"). What is being suggested here is to circumvent the process by acting like you are an employee asking to have an item transferred to your store. Now that isn't to say that they won't do it if you offer to pay for shipping... [guess how I know about the broadband example ;) ]

Your whole argument is that they can get in trouble for 'low yield' transfers. When ONE of the games is $44.99. I doubt they will get in trouble when they picked it up for $5 or so. Making $40.

It's not an issue of getting mad Champ, I'm simply explaining the consequences of the actions you are suggesting people take to get cheap games. The store manager of the Gamestop that receives low yield transfers will feel the heat from their district manager. Yes, "low yield". Keep in mind you are quoting the 44.99 price for a PS2 game in a thread about Gamecube games that are 75% off...

Remember, this is cheapassgamer.com not scumbaggamer.com

Anyway, people can do whatever they please. No skin off my nose, I just wanted to add some info from the other side of the spectrum.

I didn't pretend to be a game stop employee when i called to see about getting .hack 4 transferred over to a store near me. I asked if they could because my gamestop told me its possible and he said yeah as long as it wasnt like across the country and if i had the store number

Ok we shoulda taken this to a diff thread it's off topic, belongs in the PS2 B1G1 thread ATLEAST. but yes transferring a $1 thing is shady, a $45 game less so, and nobody wants employees in trouble.

Got my 18 games in the mail today. Only 2 had cover art (Ultimate Spiderman & Wave Race), one was complete (Bomberman Jetters), Looked at the discs and none looked rough. Hopefully I got lucky. No huge titles mostly non sports filler. Still happy with 18 games for about a buck a piece before shipping. Will be testing tonight. Wish me luck I may need it.


All Said and done 15 worked no problem. 3 did not. Went to local store returned 2 and managed to exchange 1 which surprised me. So overall not bad for what it was.

So the 75% still works in store. Here is the games I got during this sale.

yu-gi-oh falsebound kingdom (i know. its a alright game if u like yugioh)
x2 Mario party 4 (sold one here on CAG to help out.)
star wars rogue squad 3
robotech battlecry
x2 resident evil zero (may trade/sell)
star wars rogue 2
x2 mario golf (sold one to same CAG here)
x2 fight night round 2 (yay. super punch out alone worth it if u like snes. may trade/sell)
ikaruga :)
lord of the rings return of the king (fan of star wars and lotr)
naruto clash of ninja (never played, but so cheap)
naruto 2: clash (saw tv show...not bad. wonder if naruto is worth it?)
metroid prime (i have the wii collection)
gotcha force (played it. its alright, just not my type of game.)
super smash bros melee
Total: $41.25

I live in the DC/MD area. No, I did not drive to many GS. It's funny that super smash bros melee wasn't showing in the online store inventory, but gs employee found it in the drawer complete with case and booklet. His computer stated that they didnt have it in stock. All games tested and works. Sure mostly disc only, but they all work and wanted some for gamecube since I skip it duing the good old xbox/halo days.
I requested a store transfer on 1/14/13 for a gameboy player and eternal darkness. The GS I got the games said that it depends on the DM. If the transfer is within 15 miles, then the manager has to drive it to that location. He also stated that transfering one item is losing them money (UPS) and if they dont sell then they will transfer to another store or back to warehouse in Texas. So anyone trying to do transfer, your store manager may say yeah, but they most luckly didnt do it. (I try many times and kept blowing smoke, but Im glad I was able to get some alright titles to build my gamecube collection. Thanks OP.

I'm more or less done with this sale (got most of the stickers off, too!). Anything else i'd really go for is not available within 100 miles. I may pick something up if I see it in the store or there is a website re-stock, but i'm done specifically GC shopping at GS for this.

Here's what I did...
Posted Image

Baten Kaitos Origins isn't from GS, rather something I happened to find in between GS stores. Kao was from ebay, it was supposed to be GC version $4.xx shipped. When it arrived it was the PS2 version, and the seller refunded my money and let me keep the game as well so that was pretty awesome. Everything else is from the GS sale. The two without covers are Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life and Mystic Heroes.

It still shows through Jan 27th. The deal will probably exist until they take a wrecking ball to the remaining discs which shouldn't be long.

Wend to pickup Fire Emblem - Radiant Dawn, and Fire Emblem - Shadow Dragon at my local gamestop (In honor of the new Fire Emblem coming out), and was surprised to see that they still had non-sports games left. Ended picking up about anything non sports. Will update later with what I got!

Try it in both GC and Wii. Sometimes it works in one and not the other.

I will wait until 90% off so I can get one of those cheap quality GS GC controllers... there is a bunch in all nearby GS, from what I have read they break rather easily... I wanted a wavebird since the promo started , but none of my close GS have them of course.

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

Yeah some GS corporate guy said they were doing that, made it sound like it was going to be online and in store and also like it was going to start extremely soon. That was half a year ago, if not longer.

Still, if it ever happens...

1. GameStop.com
2. search "stadium events"
3. In-store pick up
4. Reserve 100 miles away
5. Win.
