"Can I get Gears of War, Metal Gear Rising, (and Style Saavy)."

"What was that last one?"

"Style Saavy... for my niece?"

"Riiight..."

FE is best buy for sure

Mario tennis will hit 19.99 but ocarina of time is one of those games I see staying at MSRP forever like new super Mario btus or Mario 64 on DS


Ocarina of Time has been $20 before.

That's all fine and dandy but Used != new. This is a great deal for FE.

A whopping $5 off for a used copy? Do you buy gamestop used games for $54.99 LOL?


That is the dumbest comment today...

5$ off 60$ is 8% off

5$ off 30$ is 16% off

so to go back to your logic... Yes I would buy gamestop's games for 49.99$

back on the subject though... 5$ off of 5 games (lets say Fire Emblem, MH3, OOT, Mario 3D Land, Prof Layton)... would give me a free game... because I would save up another 25$ to buy another one.

So what is your point exactly?

My point was that these are always available for cheaper. So there is no reason to jump on this deal immediatelly, and that since you can always get them cheaper its not a great deal.

Also I am sure most will agree that a cartridge used game is not even comparable to a PC/360/PS3 used game. A used disc can be messed up in more ways than 1... its very hard to mess up a cartridge. So in most cases you are basically buying a new game that has been opened when buying 3DS/DS games used.

Just because you think it doesn't matter doesn't change the fact that used != new.

Is OOT on any other platforms besides 3DS and N64? Was it every released on Virtual Console for Wii?

I agree. If I buy a game that I will most likely keep, I would prefer to be the only owner of it. Most people aren't nearly as careful with their games as I am, particularly on portable games that get shoved in pockets or drink holders. And for disc games, I often wonder how in the hell some of the scratches get on the games. Is there some form of frisbee golf where you use game discs that I am not aware of?

It is going to take more than $5 to make up the difference. If it is a game that I'm just going to play, beat and trade back in then sure.

I agree. I got like $30 credit from Gamestop for trading in a used Ocarina of Time I bought from Best Buy without the other things that come with a new game and I bought a new one to keep.

100% agree. Not to mention finding a copy at BBY that has all the extras is slim to none for most people. Some people don't care for the extras, and that's fine. Other people do and this is a good deal for anyone wanting a new copy of FE or OoT.

That was the price there recently and I wouldn't be shocked if it still was.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more

Always risk not getting the full case/manual/CN codes. I'm not usually big on reward codes but CN usually has some decent stuff. I don't mind giving support to Nintendo by buying new. Say what you want about them, but they've always stood their ground and sold quality first party stuff.

Nintendo only allows you to transfer saves from physical copies to digital copies, but not vice versa.

Is Fire Emblem that great of a deal, is it really hard to find or something? Is it not expected to dip down to $20 eventually? It just came out a few months ago so it seems like a fine deal for a fairly recent game, but $10 off didn't immediately strike me as amazing. Maybe there is something I'm missing.
