I called ahead to 2 nearby stores and have confirmed at both a Buy 2 Get 1 free on used games starting at 7:00 P.M. Thursday June 17 and lasting the weekend. Guess I know I'm going to be buying stuff today ^^

Has been confirmed to be nation-wide. Thanks to all who posted about it being confirmed in their states.
As a poster said: "The employees are feigning ignorance about it right now." When it becomes public knowledge (probably Friday or Saturday) is when they will talk about it over the phone and such.
Also, its confirmed the online B2G1FREE is working and thanks to a poster, if you add SAVER last, it adds on.

100% confirmed

Here is a dumb question so I apologize for asking it... but is a b2g1 valid online as well?

Did you really need to create another thread to confirm a thread that already existed?

From my experience jiggy the b2g1 if nationwide runs in conjunction with one offered online.

I'd trust a confirmed thread with some details over some "possible b2g1..." post.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Is this nationwide? It seems like certain parts of PA do local B2G1 sales all the time.

I just picked up a 360 so this is a good way for me to begin building a catalog (or backlog haha). Any suggestions as to what to buy? I already have: Gears 1 + 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Mass Effect 2. I was hoping to pick up Mass Effect 1, Left For Dead, Halo: ODST....any other suggestions? I'm most interested in 360 exclusives bc I own a ps3 as well.

Fable 2 is the only exclusive that comes to mind that you have seemed to overlook.

Don't buy Mass Effect 1 from Game Stop. Its $19.99 MSRP but they sell teh game for $29.99 used.

Fable II kinda sucks. The game is retarded easy, the only people I know that are big Fable II fans are all girls. There are lots of other 360 exclusives out there....

Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts, Beautiful Katamari, Blue Dragon, Bullet Witch, Earth Defense Force 2017, Hitman Blood Money, Tomb Raider Legend, Lost Odyssey, Ninja Gaiden II, Phantasy Star Universe, Project Gotham 4, Raiden IV, Raiden Fighter Aces, Spectral Force 3.

Plus, there always seems to be a B2G1 deal on new copies of PH.

So: ME1, Fable II, and throw in a random 3rd game like Halo Wars. Shiny new > gamestop.

That is of course unless you hate PH cases, which I tend to do. But both ME1, Hal Wars, and Fable II have extra content.

Thanks for all the responses! I was looking at the Walmart B2G1 on 360 PHs, but the final price would always balloon to about $80 (I think I was trying to get L4D: GOTY edition, ME1 and Halo 3). Are there other stores running a similar promotion? Sorry to the OP, I'm not trying to jack your thread.

Lost Odyssey
Blue Dragon
Quake 4
Prey
Crackdown
Kameo

You can get most of those real cheap, and to me they're all great games. Prey is fantastic if you like FPS. And if you like JRPGs, Lost Odyssey recently replaced Legend of Dragoon as my favorite of all time.

You must get Tales of Vesperia. It is hands down the best RPG on the 360 and so far of the current generation.

I agree, I'm not going to hold my breath on this one until we are 100% sure.

Finally get to use my credit instore! Lately the deals online have made the in-store deals look terrible. Have $300 in credit to potentially burn. Might get Heavy Rain, The Show, and I don't know what else.

I would not only because it's my favorite RPG this generation but because it's out of print and prices on it are jacked up. Makes me wish I got the collector's edition instead.

Well out of the six stores I called here in central Georgia, only one of them knew of the promotion. *shrug* (The one who is running the promotion is the GameStop in Macon, GA out on Grey Hwy -- starts at 7pm tonight)

I wish uncharted 2, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and God of War 3 were cheaper...i can't think of anything i want from this sale that I haven't scored for cheaper in the past few weeks. Gamestop's in store prices are pretty bad.

What PS3 games should I pick up during this sale? Exclusives, obviously. Just CML to see what I've got so I don't clutter the thread. I was looking at Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 maybe but other than that I'm drawing a blank.
