Fire Emblem for $25 seems like a decent deal. Anyone know what kind of shape these come in?

Is this in store too? Anyone able to find these in store? Specifically Monster Hunter?
I give up on everything, even giving up on everything.

Was thinking about New Super Mario 2 but then saw $34.99 so I think I'll pass Gamestop...I mean Best Buy.

This discount still possible?


How?


From the Best Buy Reward Zone App on Facebook. Last month if you spent $10 or more on a purchase at BB you would get 500 Reward points which equals $10 bucks.

What shape are the games usually in when you buy used from BB? Do you get the manual and the case?

I may take advantage of this to pick up VLR, P4G and Ragnarok later this month. It STACKS with 10% off for being member of Unlocked automatically in the online checkout and I have a buy 2 get 1 free coupon on used games.

For me it comes out to 47.79 with tax for 3 games so effectively $15.93 per game and I haven't seen P4G, VLR, Silent Hill, Ragnarock or monkey ball go that low lately, but they will probably all get price cut eventually. Problem is that I won't be able to buy them online because it's showing none in my area for them so i'll have to find them instore.

I prefer buying games new so I'm probably going to hold off to see what retailers do deep discounts on new games that I could price match and stack with a buy 2 get 1 free on new games i have a separate coupon for. But I can use this deal as a plan b.

Actually I'll probably use the b2g1f for new games on soul sacrifice with whatever game I find a good price cut at another retailer to price match and then i'll use this deal to use the b2g1f for used games coupon for whatever is left. Gonna be patient and watch the price cuts to see how cheap I can get everything.

I'm getting to the point where I need to spend less time looking for deals and more time actually playing these games. Managed to work through my backlog, but I have a ton of games in que for when I get a vita.

They're similar to GS, but disc based games are in great condition when you buy them from BB. Their resurfacing machine is magic. As for carts, they look like how carts are supposed to look.

As for you B2G1 new games coupon, you're likely NOT going to be able to stack the price match with the coupon, but that is a YMMV situation.

Yep i just realized that myself a minute ago after looking over the coupon. The new game coupon isn't as useful unless they also sale price new games.

But the new game coupon still could potentially be useful to use for soul sacrifice which i'd buy on release if they drop the price on 2 other games that I want to 19.99. Then I'd effectively be paying $20 per game which would be a good way to pick up Soul Sacrifice on release.

I wouldn't worry about it. At the rate Vitas are selling in the US, you're more likely to see these games go cheaper NEW before these deals expire.

I'd say these are good deals for now, but certainly come Black Friday you can get even better deals on these games NEW. Possibly sooner.

Until Sony cuts the price on the Vita from $250 wifi to $210 sales are going to be sluggish and games will continue to get all these crazy cuts. I don't think Soul Sacrfice will do too much because although it might be a great game, it's still going to be for more of a niche audience which is why Sony gave away Demon's Souls this week with PS+. Smart move using one soul rpg as a gateway drug to another.

Even with my buy 2 get 1 free and additional 10% off, I see this as more of a I want to play these games now type of deal as opposed to lowest price i'm going to get this at type deal.

That said, i'm trying to find more deals now and get more of my gaming done before November so I don't build up as big of a backlog as I did the last 2 years. It''s only possible because of how bad the sales on the Vita have been and how the impending PS4 is making all these PS3 games so dirt cheap to the point where I can't resist.

Thanks OP picked up a used copy of Ragnarok Odyssey today and just used a swagbucks giftcard to cover the cost it was a little bit over $24 after tax and GCU discount. Cheapest price I've seen for it and I'm glad it came with the case as well.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

really?


from those links the specials on the side won't show buy 2 get one, but if you go back to it searching it for yourself it will. not sure how long it lasts and things won't stay in stock long enough for me to really take advantage

Yup I see it now. I hope it lasts for awhile since some of the games like Luigi's mansion seems to be not available yet. I doubt it'll be that long though.

I was at BBY yesterday and Vita All stars was 20 bucks in the clearance bin. Unit 13 was in there for 15 as well as Resistance I believe it was.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.
