Blockbuster is doing a holiday promotion and selling games for 50% off that they sell pre-owned for $20 or less. Mine had a OK selection.

Games I saw:
Gears of War 3
Portal 2
Deus Ex: HR
Final Fantasy 13
Final Fantasy 13-2
Darkness 2
Dragon Age Origins

And a whole bunch more, nothing real recent. For 20 bucks I got Gears 3 and F13 FF13-2.
Went to another blockbuster and they had the same rack there with similar games.

EDIT:
Also they are offering Black ops 2 for Wii U, PS3, and 360 for $49.99 NEW

My store also has 50% off those games as well, thought this was YMMV so didn't bother reporting it

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.

All my disks were like 7/10...you could tell they were in a blockbuster but I only paid like 6 or 7 bucks a game so I was content.

Is this a chain wide promotion then? I guess two separate reports makes it seem like a go...

that's awesome, I remember when BB was the King, now they are barely holding together. I went by my store at 11am, and they weren't even open yet, a few people were standing outside waiting but obviously someone forgot to set their alarm for 10am!

Make sure it's rewound or they'll also charge you a rewind fee.

I live the middle of nowhere where dial up is still viable for some folks, and all 6 of our Blockbusters have been closed for over a year. How the hell do they stay in business anywhere else?

I checked my local store and they had this sale as well. CSR said the sale would end 01/07/2012 so I don't think it's YMMV. I found (3) AC Revelations and was gonna grab two (one for me and ^^^) but the the worker couldn't find the discs, so I ended up with none unfortunately. I did pick up :ps3: Transformers: DOTM for $9.99.

Other games I saw:
:ps3: (prices before 50%)
Warhammer Space Marine $14.99
NCAA Football 12 $14.99
Cars 2 $17.99
Killzone 3 $14.99
Brink $7.99
Deus Ex $14.99
Syndicate $19.99
Captain America $19.99
Ico Collection $18.99
Batman AC $19.99
Shadows of the Damned $14.99

:360: (prices before 50%)
Mass Effect 3 $14.99
Crysis 2 $14.99
The Darkness II $19.99
Final Fantasy XIII-2 $18.99

Blockbuster doesn't really allow returns, only exchanges.

Amazingly there are still a couple BBV's around here. Might have to stop in and take a look.
