Not sure if this is only a Philadelphia thing, but the FYE here is having a crazy game liquidation sale. Lots of XBox, PS2, Gamecube, and even some old PSX games are all 50% off in huge bins.

The PSX games all come in triples and were $7.50 a 3 pack.

Managed to score a copy of FF8 and FF9 in one of those $7.50 packs, as well as a limited edition of Wild Arms 5 for the PS2 in a nice looking box for $10.

Thanks - I'll walk over there tomorrow. Were there other FF8/9 sets, or did you snag the only one?

I thought all the FYE's cleared out all their gaming stuff? The one down on 24th and Oregon in South Philly was cleared of all their stuff like last year.

Just depends on location, the one where I live doesn't anymore but the one in the last town I lived in (60 miles away) still does sell games.

I went there yesterday - pretty much a whole lotta crap left. OP picked up the only decent PSX bundle. They did have a bunch of stuff, but nothing worthwhile IMO.

It's really not worth a long trip, I assure you. The best I saw aside from what's been written here were Baten Kaitos 1 & 2 for 10 bucks each.

I went there yesterday between noon - 12:30. I saw one guy combing through the XBox section with disappointment. Not sure if that was anyone from CAG?

Only a few titles caught my eye, and the ones that did were mostly overpriced even with the 50% off, reflecting launch-MSRP prices. Blech... I'm checking out the FYE in the Gallery today before I head out to the Welcome America event tonight...

Caliburn, let me know if the Gallery FYE has any deals. I'm heading into chinatown this afternoon I think, so I'll stop by if there's anything good. Thanks!

I went to the gallery one yesterday. Mostly xbox stuff in a very small box - didn't bother going through it in detail.

picked up perfect dark zero CE for 7.50. Most discounted games were 75% off, but slim pickings.
