Well you are right since that list has games that are either games people didnt care for as much, mass produced games, or games we were waiting for the sweet price range. The only one that doesnt make sense is Xcom on ps3. I mean it just came out less than 6 months ago. Why would it be on the chopping block for the ps3 version?


A lot of games hit low prices, at least on sale, after 6 months. Particularly ones that barely managed 100K units on release. XCOM might be doing well on digital/PC sales, but I haven't seen one report yet that indicates it did well on consoles.

Aw hell yeah! I'd much rather have the Collector's Edition of any game, but $5 is the insta-pounce price for just about any decent game. Prototype 2, here I come! THANK YOU.

I'd love Return to Dreamland but should probably just keep the $30 for now... alas

Traded in my Aliens: Cornhole Marines for $22 (100% TIB Baby!) and picked up Darksiders 2 for $15. Still have $5 left over. Now that was a pimp decision.

Thanks Scottman! Just ordered Prototype 2. I only got to rent it from GameFly and I did honestly enjoy it for what it was. To me, it was a lot of mindless fun and I really enjoyed the combat as well. So this is a great deal imo.

Any other awesome deals like this? I'm big into open-world games, like Saint's Row, etc.

And yes, definitely need more clearanced games!

I can only really speak to what I've seen at my store and it's that people bought the game when it first came out then no one has touched them for the past few months. I personally loved Xcom and when people are looking for a game I recommend it but few people I've talked to want a game like it and just want a shooter. Could just be that genre is mostly on PC and a vast majority of people that know what the game is already bought it on console or just bought it on PC as PC has had it on sale already...hell I got it for 17 bucks on GMG with a steam code.

Just got back from Best Buy and had a print out of SR3 from Monday when it was 9.99. I tried using the stock locator during the week and it said "Unavailable" everywhere so I didn't bother. Went in today to try and find Prototype 2 for $5 but instead found a copy of SR3: The Full Package and had them price match no problem. Super YMMV, but it might be helpful for someone to post a screenshot of the website so some of us can print out when it's uncertain that we can use the "Pick Up at Store" option when inventory counts seem to be off.

I did a store pickup for 2 prototype and spiderman. Bestbuy sent me an email that the items were ready to pick up. I went to the store and after waiting 30 minutes while they looked all over the store they told me they couldn't find them, they told me they were "lost". I said fine i've been waiting for too long I have to go can you please just cancel my order. (I'd rather pay full price for the games then wait any longer). The guy said ok and then typed some stuff in the computer. 2 receipts came out and he quickly hid them under the desk, I thought that was weird but he told me that the order was canceled. I said ok well do you have a cancellation receipt or anything? Hoping that one of the receipts that came out was proof I would be refunded. He told me no but I should get a cancellation email within 24 hours. As I was walking away I checked my phone to see if I received anything and i saw I got an email from bestbuy saying my order was picked up! I was like woah wait it says I picked up the order how can that be? He said oh sorry I must have pushed the wrong button? I think he did that on purpose so that the store would not look bad for losing the order. He called some bestbuy number to try to get me refunded and he said they told him they can't do anything until tomorrow because it hasn't registered in the system yet?

Anyone know what I should do? I don't have the games, bestbuy thinks I picked up the order and I have no proof otherwise. I tried calling bestbuy 1-888 number and they told me I had to work it out with the store tomorrow. Is there anyway to complain about the store? My store is constantly having store pickup problems and I have no idea who to complain to. I'm sort of annoyed not only that they didn't have the games but that they processed the order so their store wouldn't look bad and then they lied to me.

You didn't ask to speak to a supervisor on-site? That guy should have been canned for that. The fact that he lied to you and the receipts are there without your signature is enough.

I should have, but I was already in the store waiting for so long I had other things I had to do. I didn't have time to wait for the supervisor to come who knows how long that would have taken. With how slow everything was going it easily could have been another 15 minutes. Also I saw the supervisor try to help him find the games so he knew what was going on which for some reason I thought maybe the supervisor told him to process the order as picked up. I didn't know if the supervisor would be able to tell me any more than what he told me that I had to wait 24 hours for the order to register? I'm sure if I would have asked for the supervisor the employee would have just told him he made a mistake anyway.

I don't know my bestbuy is shady and I don't know if I feel like shopping there anymore. I would like to be able to report/complain to BB about this but calling the 1-888 # didn't do anything.

It kind of seems like he purposely did all that to keep your merchandise for himself. He probably hid the games somewhere in the back (his locker).

Even if that was not his initial intention and they truly couldn't find the games, he can now keep them if they do show up. I mean they're paid for, picked up and everything.

Definitely call BB, email them, and post on their forum. If you go to the specific store's website, you can email the store manager to complain. Lastly, contact your credit card company/bank if nothing else works.

Wait and see if u get a email that says if u pick it up. it should pop up within a day. That sounds like the bb guy try to pull something. U could have just refuse pickup and let it drag 7 days and the system would auto cancel after 7 days. Let us know what happens. If u get the email that u did pick up go talk to lp. Video will have evidence showing u when u try to pick it up and left empty handed.

I would call the manager back immediately and tell him that you believe the employee was engaged in fraud and theft. They have surveillance cameras all over the store, so you should tell the manager you want to come down and see the footage showing your transaction. This is a very serious situation as that employee literally stole from you.

I believe he stated he received the "picked up" email while he was still in the store. This is how he knows the CS rep did not cancel his order, but rather processed it as the customer picked it up. Hence the two receipts the CS rep was trying to hide.

I truly believe the CS rep (and other employees) really could not find the games and that the rep made a mistake with the pick up and not cancelling the order...but I believe the mistake could have been reversed by a manager. Correct me if I'm wrong on the latter.
