Found this at EB way up high on the shelf.

Not a bad price for a decent little shooter, the cheapest price I've ever seen on it.

Pricetag said 2.99 and it came up in the computer as such.

It was very high up on the shelf at EB... you wouldn't have known it was there unless you were specifically looking for it.

New?!?

Xevious is one of my favorite games, and I've been wanting this so bad, but promised myself I'd wait till is was less than $9.99.

Woo-hoo! Sounds like another one of those crazy temp markdowns EB likes to do. I'll have to ask my friend tommorow if anything else dropped to $10 and under.

I caught that price at two separate EBs in my area too. So I'm guessing it could be nationwide. And it was new.

Yep, brand new.

At this particular EB, there are a ton of cheap games for all systems as soon as you walk in. It was on this wall, wayyyyy up top on the shelf - you can barely see the pricetag.

It's been this price for a few days now, my friend told me Thursday but I didn't confirm it until today, and didn't want to post the deal until I saw it for myself.

I'll pay $5 for someone to pick this up for me and ship it my way. I'd really appreciate it.

This is nationwide and I think it's a pretty old deal. I thought it was posted in the past so that's why I didn't post it. I've seen it at this price for like 2 weeks. They're trying to clearance it out. I haven't gotten one as I already own one from a Kmart sale for $6.

Just out of curiosity, how does the NES Xevious stack up to the arcade version? They seem the same.

Damn you xevious...

Damn you Xevious... damn you to hell.....

Damn you Xevious be quiet.

So you know EBM? Damn you Xevious...

AT LAST!! It's finally the price it should have been released at!

Rejoice!

(At least until Nintendo released Donkey Kong Country 3 for $35 and says 'Look, a NEW game! Aren't we great?')

Yeah, it's not too bad. You'll easily get $3 out of it... but remember that it's included in the next Namco collections for both home consoles and PSP.

Keep in mind the GBA release of Namco 50th Anniversary is going to have the original arcade verison.

Which pisses me off because I already own this, Pacman Collection, and Namco Museum... but I still REALLY want Mappy.

Actually, according to their website, it won't.

Is this for it new or used?

I checked two EBs near me and they were both $10 for it. :/

Did they scan it?

It scans up as 2.99... the copy the guy brought for me out of the back was marked 9.99, however, but scanned up at 2.99.
