Hmm, I haven't been to Wizzy Wig in a while. Might have to stop by there this weekend, if it doesn't snow too much.

I preordered my 360 from a Gamerush in Roseville back in June, but then they gave me a call the day before launch to tell me they only got 5 systems in and I was number 6 on the list. :(


I preordered mine from the Waterford Gamerush and barely made it. I was #4 of 5 and beat #5 by 1 day. I guess Blockbuster is losing its edge if they can only get 5 systems at laucnh at the few Gamerush locations they have. Word is that Best Buty will have systems on Dec 18, but I'm guessing you have alot of Gamerush credit like I did.

I have a ton of gamerush credit and a system coming, and my Gamerush is out of games! They mass produce DVDs with ease, it is ridiculous.

I live in Mt.Pleasant, the only mom and pop we have uses ebay prices. I was like WTF Chrono Trigger SNES, then I was like WTF 80 bucks?! Ya, screw that.


Take a drive into Midland and stop over where Farmer Jack was (next to business 10, BTW now it's a Foodland). A nice pair of older folks run Game Exchange. He prices at Gamestop prices minus a few bucks. I got my COMPLETE Lunar 2 complete from him a few years back for $35, and Disgaea for $40 (when it was going for $70 on ebay). I think for Chrono Trigger he wants $45 or so, he hasn't had a copy in a while. FF2/3 runs like $30-$40 or so IIRC.

If you come in Mon, Tues, or Wed and bring in a few non-perishable food stuffs (food drive thingy) you can get %30 off almost your entire purchase (gift cards, new comics, and on Wed. no new release stuff). We had this sale for subscribers (pull and hold comic people) yesterday and it was extended through Wed since some postcards went out late. Just mention that you got an e-mail, or if you see the guy with a spot (me) just say your from cag.

And to add to the video game side of things, the Sears in twelve Oaks has crap as far as clearance goes...as usual.

If anybody is ever in Mt.Pleasant Main Street Audio Video sometimes has some good SNES NES stuff, I got FF3 for 12.99 and Lunar for 7 bucks once. They have a pretty good collection on older games but don't have much in the way of newer PS2/XBOX/GC games.

Anybody in the ann arbor/ypsi area should check out the Meijer on Ann Arbor Saline Rd.

They have a rack of PS2 games for $5, $7.50, $10, and $14.50 I got Nightmare of Druaga for $10, Dead to Rights 2 for $5 Shrek 2 for $10, SSX Tricky for $5, Digimon Rumble Arena 2 for 14.50 and a bunch more. Sorry that my memory escapes me, those were the only ones that caught my attention but there were at least 10-20 more titles with large red stickers marked 50% off.

ADDED:

Killzone, ps2 $10
SC:Chaos Theory, GC $10

nope, no cube games. There were 2-3 xbox games, though. Nothing really worth the trek to Ann Arbor unless you just happen to be there. I haven't seen this at any other meijer either, and I've hit them all from brighton to livonia to lansing.


Accross AA/Saline Rd. is a Target with NO clearance games at all, and a Media Play that's going out of business. They've taken off all the $ 8.99 stickers from the recent sale and everything is back to original price with 10% off signs everywhere. So, a game I bought 3 days ago for 8.99 was now 19.99 minus 10%, Yipee !

Did anybody bother checking any Costcos during the 360 flare up last week? I'm not a member and not obsessively interested, but there's a Costco about 5 minutes from where I work (the one across 75 from Great Lakes Crossing) and was thinking about having a friend who is a member check it out. I doubt there are any left if they even got any in the first place.

I picked up a bundle at the Costco on Telegraph and Square Lake Road on Friday. It was an hour drive, but it was hella worth it.

That's where I picked up my 360 on launch day. They received 96 bundles! It's the busiest Costco in Michigan -- it's their Michigan flagship store, so when they get more bundles, it'll be there first.

BTW, the Costco bundles are a deal. It's $470.

Premium pack - $400
Extra wireless controller - $50
Charge & Play kit - $20
Kameo - $50

TOTAL: $520

So you're saving $50 bucks with the Costco bundle. The controller, charge & play kit and Kameo are all packaged separately, so if you didn't want them, you could try to exchange them for something else at a different store (Target, Toys R Us, etc). But Kameo is an underrated game... I had a lot of fun with it, so I think everyone should keep it!

$50 for a controller? Wavebirds are only $30. What features does the 360 controller have that make it cost that extra $20?

Umm...

It works on a 360 and not a Gamecube? :D

But seriously... Yeah, it is a bit pricey. It's pure quality, though. When people say it might be the best controller they've ever used, they're not kidding.

One feature it has that the Wavebird doesn't is the auto-connect feature: It will automatically detect and connect to whatever channel is available. The Wavebird has the dial on the controller that has to match up with the sensor in the controller port in the Gamecube. Yeah, not a big deal, but it's nice.

It's definitely worth the extra $10 to get the wireless instead of the wired.

Does this apply to the Pontiac store too or only the one you're at?

And just to give the stores another plug, I've been in the Pontiac store a few times over the last eight months and I've never been so impressed with a comic store. The world (and MI for sure) needs more clean, organized nice looking comic stores like Comic City.

Granted the only other store I've been to in the last eight months is Time Travellers, and that place makes a dumpster full of crack whores in the Cass Corridor look good.

It should. Give them a call just to make sure. If anything, Calanders went to %35 off, Action figures to %25 off, Mage Knight to %25 off, and Statues to %20 off. Revenge of the Sith mini's booster are mark down again to 9.99.

So this is probably a lost cause... but I recently decided to try and pick up and Xbox 360, thought I had one through gamestop.com but it got cancelled. Has anyone in the southeastern Michigan area seen any on store shelves or know of any place (other than Best Buy) that's expecting a shipment soon? Any help would be really appreciated!

Anyone here work at Meijers? I would like a lookup of an item and need to know what you need.

The meijer I visited yesterday had Piranha E Foprce Paintball Gun combos kits at $109 from $179 clearanced but they were all sold out....

Everyone should check around. The eforce is a pretty good gun.... Some websites prefer it over the Cocker etc.

Here's a question I haven't seen anyone ask: Is there actually going to be any 360 stock in January? Everyone is kind of assuming you will be able to get one post-christmas. But I have seen nothing anywhere that indicates M$ has fixed their supply issues. So for any workers out there, any news on January shipments at stores?

Meijer on Tittabawasee in Saginaw has a decent selection of clearance games right now. I picked up Riddick, Kingdom Under Fire, Project Snowblind and Punisher all for $10 each. I was going to get Unreal Championship 2 as well but the only copy they had was all cut up with a knife.

I'm still looking for a 360 around the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area if anyone has any leads. Now that school has started up, I really don't have time to drive an hour away to Southfield or Jackson to land one and I haven't been able to track anything down locally.
