Not really great, but the K-Mart in Farmington Hills next to Worst Buy had some PS2 games for $5.99, including Dead to Right and The Getaway. There were a few more at that price but I forgot what they were.

BTW, SpottedNigel did you used to have a different user name?

I remember that place, still have a business card I picked up. I was only in there once, but was impressed. They had a ton of import ps1 games at a time when I had just modded my playstation. It was like a more hardcore gamer's version of a Funcoland.

As for other stores, there are the Blockbusters with Gamerush stores and in SE MI there are flea markets like Dixieland in Waterford and Gibraltar in Taylor and Mt. Clemens that usually have a booth or two with new and used games. There is also a Hollywood Video Gamecrazy store in West Bloomfield at Haggerty & Pontiac Trail.

It's surprising how far one will drive in the traffic & road construction we have here just to save some $$ on games.

The gibraltar in taylor has got some very good gaming stores, 3 or 4 if I remember correctly. I found Thousand Arms for the PSone there for ten bucks. Gibraltar is definitly recomended, also its located near a gamestop and an EB!

play source was awsome. I went there at least every other week. Loved it. But then both stores just kind of closed suddenly, no going out of business sale, not much warning, just bam. I wonder what they did with all those extra games? And speaking of it, does anyone know what happened ? Did they move, set up shop somewhere else, etc?

Not really.

Gibraltar has really dried up in terms of good deals... now you're starting to get "collectors" trying to sell thier games at a premium, and only want to deal with PS2 and Xbox games.

I used to be able to go there and pick up early PSX RPGs at almost silly prices (Suikoden 2- $5), old hardware (Odyssey2, Atari, etc) for about 5-10 dollars a console, and every so often a rare gem would pop up.

That's hardly the case anymore... you'll rarely see a random person show up that doesn't really know the going price of what they have.

I blame the mainstream acceptance of Ebay... 5 years ago, I used to be able to pick up 2-5 uncommon or rare games a week for under 30 dollars.

Now, I'm lucky to see a game that's reasonably price there at all.

There's an import shop, called Game Spot, on Ford road between Newburgh and Merriman. Everything is over priced, and the guy will treat you like shit if you don't buy something, haha! So, I guess it's not that great of a place for CAGs.

Will update the original post with these stores. That is the one thing about living in Michigan there are so many different big cities to find game deals in and the state is so big.
