Yeah, refurbished. I'm not sure what that means...

Some stuff is selling out, and the games are pre-orders for some reason.

EB doesn't give us discounts for that. My guess is they're returns (which they always open) that they couldn't send back to the manufacturer. Or something?

Well, considering FF13 is on-sale right now for $49.99 (new) $22 for the game + shipping is worth it, even if it is "gutted."

Unless the game isn't included and they're only sending the contents of the CE?

Either way I ordered... For now. It could be an easter-sale that the OP caught really early.

Is GS allowed to increase pricing of "pre-orders?" They could have just been leaving a placeholder for CE's that were returned for whatever reason.

I don't know, but we will find out. I get the feeling I'm going to get an email with the order being cancelled.

At that price a gave it a shot, Ninja Gaiden 3 CE for 14,99$ I wonder if its all broken & busted! :( well if the game is included its not all bad! I just hope the statue isnt missing or broken! But if its really complete and like new, thats one hell of a deal :)

Not sure what refurb means either, looks like I will find out. I ordered the NG3 and the FF13, with standard shipping and a time of checkout discount total cost was $26.24. If the games work that's a good price, regardless of what refurb means.

Thanks OP, nice catch.

Grabbed a LOTR and NG3 CEs too, the NG3 for the figure and the LOTR just to get the free shipping. You actually get $5 off for ordering both.

Ordered one last night. I feel dumb to ask but this comes with the GAME, right? Apparently this is on EB's Facebook page, definitely legit.

I'd like Arkham City, though it looks sold out. It also doesn't really list what console it's for either for some reason.

Sometimes my local EBgames has a few CEs opened up to show the goodies you get with it. They probably never sell that copy and send it back. But then again, they do sell open box items all the time.

They did this for Skyrim last time and people got all of the items so I'm optimistic!


Refurbished = gutted.


Yeah, if only all gutted games at EBgames had that kind of price cut!

Interesting....Unfortunately the only ones available by the time I saw this are FFXIII-2, NG3, and LOTR.
Though I am sorta interested in FFXIII-2, it isn't for 360, but no interest in the others. Would have loved to snag GOW3 and Batman

I ordered War in the North and FF 13-2. I actually wanted to try WitN, FF13-2, well if I don't like it as much as I predict, it can always be trade in. I would have considered NG3 if I had actually played the previous 2 and didn't read and hear everywhere that its shit. Both for less then 30$ shipped is not bad at all. Now hopefully we're not all getting screwed and they actually have the game discs.:D

Nice, grabbed them both at that price. I wouldn't bother if it's $20 for just one of those games. And now to wait...

Got my email this afternoon, no NG3 for me, apparently it was oversold. So far I am still getting FF13-2.

Just checked my order and no changes have been made yet, kind of curious what they are doing for shipping. I am not really interested in paying more than twenty dollars, hopefully they update the bill before they complete it.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I received the dreaded e-mail for both my LOTR War in the North CE and FF 13-2 CE. Looks like we are all getting screwed out of this deal.:cry:

I also got an email about my FF13 order. I was expecting this, so not too disappointed - but it does still suck.
