GameCube & GBA PreOwned Games Now In Stock At Gamestop! 75% Off All GC & GBA Games Discount Now Works Again!

The deal is back on! They even restocked some GBA games this time, which are also 75% off. But beware to all those who are picky because I can almost guarantee that they will be disc only. But for 75% off, and the additional 10% for PUR members, who can complain? If you go on and see a bunch of crap games, don't give up! They will randomly restock at random times throughout the day (usually around 11pm-2am est or 7-9am est from past experiences).

I also wanted to point out that they WON'T be complete and they WILL have scratches, maybe even to the point of not working at all.
 
Also don't forget to use the "SAVER" promo code to get free value shipping on any order over $25.
 
 
 What happens if the games I receive don't work?

I wonder how many of these are returns. Or maybe just stock from stores sent back to the warehouse?

There was a deal like this before, but all games were sold out. Today they just had a fresh restock of nearly all the GameCube games. The stores had to ship all their remaining GameCube games to the Gamestop warehouse, and these are probably the ones that they received from the stores.

There are even some rare ones in stock as well. They should sell out fast, so hurry up!

Which are the rare ones are you talking about?

I highly advise you don't bother with these.

I purchased a truckload of titles the first go around, and I sent back almost all of them.

Almost all of the titles were disk only and about 2/3 of the games were defective (disk read error/unable to read disk error).

A lot of the games had a smudge residue stain on the inner disk and it was clear these disks were rebuffered a ton before being sent out.

I can only imagine that these available titles are the trash of the trash.

Playing

Really wanted NFS Underground 2 as that's one of the best racing games but sadly it's out of stock!

Bleh, wasn't fast enough to get some of the titles I wanted, but its probably for the best.

Actually I'm just happy that I can confirm the 75% off is still going, there is one more remote GS that has a few games I want in-store.

Thanks for the heads up, OP!

You're the jerk who stole FZero out of my cart! :(

I'm curious, for everyone buying GameCube games, are you actually playing these or reselling? Just curious as I didn't think the whole nostalgia following for older systems was this big?

It isn't, it's called OCD and compulsive buying. Very few people here who buy loads of these games will even play half of them.

It's the vg world's equivalent to being a gambling addict.

Well I fit right in then. Although I have a GameCube I'm not biting on any games. My backlog is probably in the hundreds! Talk about OCD!

I still have my Gamecube hooked up to play my library of games along with GBA cartridges. Actually, I also have my Dreamcast and Saturn hooked up, too despite also owning the consoles from this generation haha.

Blah... I ordered a few games, but I was charged tax based off the pre-discounted price, so yeah... Ticket into customer support now.

Some of these titles seem overpriced considering you'll most likely get disc only and scratched to hell.

I've been buying my used GC games via Amazon from a seller called Express Media (Fulfillment by Amazon). Each one I've bought Like New and they come complete and literally like new...and at reasonable prices. Mario Golf Toadstool Tour cost me under $5, like new and complete. Star Fox Adventures was a bit more, around $8 or $9. These, along with SSX3 and WWE: DOR1 all complete and Like New, no scratches, manuals (crisp), cover at (crisp), cases (well Mario Golf came in a regular DVD case, but I have a bunch of spare like new GC cases)...hell even the precaution inserts came. And all were the black labeled versions.

So yeah, at least my experience has been awesome with these guys. And I rarely buy used...my large GC collection were all bought new except for the above, so I'm particularly picky on the condition of a game I add to my collection.

I'm hoping they fix my tax and don't just cancel the order and ask me to re-order... I picked up 25 games for 27.80$ + tax.

Anyone know how to remove the residue that is left in the middle of the discs?

^^ Very gently with a water pik. I don't recommend it though. If the disc works, leave it alone.



At this point, anything gamestop has is a refurb that will likely give problems.

Thanks OP.
I got 28 games for $35 bucks and some change after taxes. Wonder why they charged such a high tax?

It's because Melee is MUCH better than Brawl and no one gave up Melee when Brawl came out (or they went and rebought it).

Oh Boy.. you guys should not get your hopes too high on these. If you do get some good ones, congrats... I think I am going to sit this one out.

On a side note, the only complete in excellent condtion games I've seen is DDR Mario Mix. I have seen at least 3 or 4 complete copies that I passed on.
