My local GameStop has changed the collector's edition of Saints Row The Third to the pre-owned sku. It seems like its only in stores for now.

The website won't change the price and calling a store to look in the system for it won't give any results due to it being the used SKU and they are actually not supposed to sell it as new, but take it apart, toss out the bonuses, and sell just the game. Stupid I know, but that's GS.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

It shows up 69.99 on their site.

47.99 isn't that great of a drop, but it's something(if in fact that's what it dropped to)

I believe this was clearanced at Toys 'R Us for $10, but not many got in on that. I know I didn't, no go on price-matching BB either.

Was thinking about getting the regular version at BB this sunday for $35 and using my B2G1 coupon, but might bust a gamestop trade and get this.

So is this new converted to used? Would love to PM this somehow but I highly doubt it.

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.

I'm willing to be there are less then 100 TRU stores that regularly stock CE's, especially ones that aren't AAA. None of the TRU in my state had these period... let alone when they dropped to $9.99

So that somehow invalidates this deal? Get a grip, man.

Some might, but the website won't show them unless the stores have not yet updated their inventory to convert their copies to used. It is impossible to find a new->used convert by looking up a SKU/checking online.

You know what? I think he might be talking about the regular edition. Talk about fail.

i double checked..it was 47.99. But if the game goes on sale soon you can get it price matched.

Where do you guys live that your GSes and BBYs have good CEs in stock? All mine has are the spider-wrap damaged AC Brotherhoods and other shit nobody wants.

OK, so the price listing on gamestop dot com is wrong but is the store locator accurate? If none show up in a 100 mi radius, is that correct?

update 1: the locator is NOT accurate since it was switched to used
update 2: Just researched the platinum edition. It only comes with a soundtrack, the genki dlc, and the crappy headphones? Even at $40, this isn't a good deal. Why not just wait until the inevitable GoTY?

Are the headphones really that bad ? Do they really use batteries ? If so for what purpose ?

Sorry for all the q's, just really curious about this, thought the headphones were functional not fodder.

I have them and was severely disappointed. They are 100% battery-powered by two AA, so no batteries, no worky. Sound quality is decent, and as far as the autotune goes, I never really got around to trying it out. And they don't work with the 360 without a 3.5mm -> 2.5mm adapter.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

Thanks for the quick response, I guess I'll pass...

Picked one up for the 360. Worth trying out for $40 (after employee/PUR discount).

I might pick one up if I see it. I loved this game and shouldn't have sold it.
