According to this site:

http://www.risingcon...r/xbox360kiosks

There is a 360 at a Walmart in Phillipsburg (NJ). If you find a 360 at a store near you, please add it to the list.

I live 5 mins from the city with the highest crime rate, Camden! God place is a shit hole. I do all my cheap ass shopping in Deptford, NJ, Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, and a mall all within 1 min from each other.


LOL how do you think it feels to actually live in Camden

I actually got lost in Camden trying to drive to my friend's house in Millville. I took a wrong exit and somehow I ended up on a dirt road surrounded by Puerto Ricans(?) on ATVs. They proceeded to drive circles around me and throw shit at my car. I don't think I'll ever be able to live that down.

I can confirm that the EBgames stores in the Garden State Plaza mall have Xbox 360's. The one on the lower floor had a broken 360, but they said it will be fixed on Monday. The one on the top floor had a working 360 and it looks amazing.

There's a 360 in the walmart near Cherry Hill Mall on Rt38... there's also a TRU next to it. So it you're going for the B2G1 deal to day, stop by WM to check it out. I tried that Kameo or something game... and I wasn't too impressed.. feels like the old XBox. Personally I'm gonna wait until PS3 to come out and compare the 2.

Anyone here get in on the TRU sale today? If so, post what you got. I unfortunately could not go today as laws in my county prevent TRU to be open. I will probably go on Wednesday and pick up:

Ninja Gaiden Black
Fable
and something else

I ended up hitting the TRU in Wayne today to get in on the sale. I picked up X-Men Legends 2, Shadow of the Colossus, and Tony Hawk's American Wasteland. I was thinking of grabbing a set of ~ $20 games as well but didn't see Street Fighter Anniversary Collection. Anyone in Northern NJ rember seeing it recently at a TRU? If so where and was it going for $20 or $30?

I played Call of Duty 2 and Kameo. I assume that there were a few others as well. It was the stand alone kiosk.

It's always good to find games and other stuff in big stores near places like Camden/Trenton/Ghetto places. Poor people can't afford shit so it won't be sold out. And poor ghetto people don't know shit about rare, valuable, collectibles because they haven't had education on the subjects of our desires. Like fish in a barrel.

The EBX in the Bridgewater Commons Mall received a XBOX 360 but it's still in the crate until they make space for it by moving out one of the other displays.

I haven't seen any SF:AC in any TRU up here in AGES, been looking myself.

Oh yeah, there's an 360 kiosk at the EB in Jersey Gardens in Elizabeth.

I saw SF:AC at the Eatontown TRU yesterday, and it was $19.99 according to the shelf tag. I don't know if you'd want to travel all that way for a $20 game, but it's on Route 35 North in Eatontown, next to Borders, Exit 105 on the Garden State Parkway.

They seemed to have a lot of good titles, not too cleaned out by the sale. I wanted Stubbs the Zombie (they hadn't received it yet) and then I was going to two more titles for the buy 2 get 1 free sale.

Plus, it's really hard for me to spend money on Xbox 1 when I can put that money towards Xbox 360 games.

Don't forget to add that NJ is probably going to be the first state to be built out in the future. Meaning no more room to build.

A little late for the party, but Paramus here representing. I'm the rat bastard you all hate that nabs the good deals in Paramus. :D

Regarding the KB toys clearance, here is a copy of the my post from the thread in the main deals section:

First, let me just say that I hate hoarders. At the first KB I went to, there were two guys buying everything. All copies of DK Junglebeat with and without drums (7 copies), and basically everything else in the store. I asked if I could have one - "No." I asked if they were ebaying them, and he said no - they own a store. They did 3 transactions, $1200 total. For us in NJ, they claim to have cleaned out the stores in Toms River, Lawrenceville, Brick, and Freehold, spending about $5K total. Needless to say, I walked out of there with nothing, except a glance at the list, which according to the CSR is about 1200 games. Also, even though they will say no, the orange tag promotion (buy 1, get 1 50% off is in effect), which is how I managed to get some games for $2.50 as noted below. Anyway, at two other KBs I managed to get the following:

Oh yeah, the two guys were whispering, and I overheard them say "those cheapassgamer.com people are always late to the party." ::

All $5 unless otherwise noted:

Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones (GBA) $10
Golden Sun: Lost Age (GBA)
Breath of Fire II (GBA) $2.50
Rayman: Hoodlum's Revenge (GBA)
Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town (GBA)
World Championship Poker w/deck of cards (GBA)
Yu Gi Oh: Reshef of Destruction (GBA) $10
Yu Gi Oh: Destiny Board Traveler (GBA)
Street Fighter Alpha 3 (GBA)
Crazy Chase (GBA) $2.50
Donkey Kong Country 2 (GBA) $10
Frogger Adventures: Temple of the Frog (GBA)
Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (GBA)
Donkey Kong Country (GBA)
Dexter's Laboratory (GBA)
World Championship Poker (XBOX)
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (XBOX)
Ribbit King (GC)
Star Fox Assault (GC)
Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness (GC) $15 (HUGE YMMV) - I think the CSR just gave it to me for $15 because I spent so much
Gran Turismo 4 (PS2)

What I didn't buy, but remember:

GTA for GBA $5
Advance Wars 2 (GBA) $1
Mario vs. Donkey Kong (GBA) $5 (Not sealed, so I didn't buy it).

Hoarders are a mess. I can't stand them either.

North NJ was a little better, the always empty Ramsey NJ KB had a good amount left. I got Transformers and Rise of the Kasai for $10 each. Saw some others but wasn't that interested.

Going to check by the Bergen Mall KB later on since its probalby a low-traffic area.

Bad news for NJ CAGs. I just got back from the Bridgewater store, and the hoarders hit there as well. I had a conversation with the manager, and apparently, at the regional KB manager's meeting this afternoon, they were topic of conversation. It seems that they have hit just about every KB in NJ (confirmed for Piscataway, Westfield, Woodbridge, Jersey Gardens, Freehold, Brick, Toms River, W. Caldwell, Paramus, Wayne, Secaucus & Livingston). In her store alone, they spent $1700 (she showed me the transaction log.)

Slim pickins' guys, slim pickins left.

If they spent about $1000 in each store, thats $12K (close enough to the $10K the one guy told me this afternoon) or 1200 games (using $7.50 as the mixed price point of $5 & $10).

even if they sell them for slim markups, if those are the same dudes hitting all those KBs, they will never sell all the games they bought. i mean really. those f'in bongo drums are on sale for a reason, they didnt exaclty tear up the sales charts. how many copies of Polarium do they think they're gonna sell?

I totally agree with you. It just irks me that myself, and every other person who is looking for one copy of something is out of luck b/c of their actions - throwing aside any intentions they may have.
