Which BBV is this? Are they actually running the sale?

Imperial Hwy in Brea. Don't know if they're actually running it, but if the signs are up, I'm sure one could make a push for it. I didn't try - long ass line last night.

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

So I'm in Tucson and was going to check out a Blockbuster to see what they had for sale and ask for the trade-in price for SST PS3. I didn't have anything to trade. As I left the restaurant across the street a huge thunderstorm hit and it started pouring. I thought, cool, I'll duck into the BB while it passes. Well, as soon as I pulled into the BB parking area there was a very close lightning strike and all the power went out for at least a mile all around. I guess I should take that as a sign that SST is not a good thing to trade :lol:. (But seriously, I still want to find out tomorrow how much it trades for).

Noticed a couple of random used price drops - :wii: Elebits went from $16.99 to $14.99, and :wii: SD v Raw 2008 went from $24.99 to $19.99.

Ok decided tyo keep the madden psp, lack of silkscreen decides it for me, its not as shiny as my cousin made it out to be, but it is shiny if in a lit room.

So I got 2 codes, Syphon Filter: Combat Ops and Beats. One will be a random drawing and another a contest. (but what?) (and which one for which contest), I think beats for contest and SF:CO for random, sound good? So if you want to be in the drawing for syphon filter, put :imwithst: at the end of your post so I can see it, dont pm as I dont have many open atm. You gotta post something, dont just put :imwithst:, I would like to have it for people who contributed to the thread, not the leechers.

One of my local blockbuster's was doing the clearance sale. Nothing worth of note that hasn't been mentioned (Army of Two PS3) f/ I believe $50 and some bad Wii games but they were new and not used. Also they were clearancing Indy merch as well but no good drops and many used games with bad prices (Dark Sector PS3 I'm looking at you).

I don't know if 75-percent is an accurate estimation, Yasha. When I play, the vehicles are primarily used for transport. Anti-tank mines, artillery, and personal airstrikes pretty much make things fair if someone has access to those items. The RPG is also effective against tanks. So are your own tanks. And this is just in regards to tanks. If one can aim, picking off or stopping people using the Humvee or boat weapons can be done fairly easily. Only the helicopter presents a greater challenge, and when a good pilot presents itself, the team usually comes together and shoots it down.

But yes, both are solid games.

OOOH WTF? Metroid Prime 2 is only $4.99 @ BBV? The shao fu BBV near me has a copy but stickered 9.99. I was going to buy it to trade in GS because i remember someone mention GS Sells this game for 39.99 used. But when i call to get a quote the douche bag works there said "No i don't do trade in value over the phone man" and i keep on asking and he just gave mea random value of 4$ -_-. And thanks for the list man I'm looking to get rid of the little BBV credit i have left to put back in GS.

Your choice if you like Infantry go with COD4. If you prefer recon type missions on a huge map go with BC.

Take it for what it is, but the Blockbuster near me still has the B1G1 signage up, now with the terms and conditions at the bottom marked out with sharpie.


One of my BBV was like this too but I didn't check. The terms were still there and it happened a couple of days after it supposedly ended so take it with a grain of salt; they could have just forgot to take down the signs.

My local pawn had all 360 games for $10 today. Bought & flipped these:

Gears of War-$25
Frontlines-$15
Halo 3-$22
Blacksite-$15

Left C&C3: Tiberium Wars (how much does it get) and also bought Dark Messiah but I am assuming it only gets $12 so it will go in the collection.

Lol. I found Spiderman 3 and Cars under the passenger seat of my car after being out of town for a week. I guess they must have slid under there during my massive GS->BB->GS->BB flipping without me noticing. Went ahead and took them to GS to get like $9 toward Force Unleashed. I decided to pre-order Little Big Planet too even though I already put $5 down at BB (I want the God of War sackboy costume).

I'm surprised Gears of War still gets $25 after all this time.... might get rid of mine since 2 is coming in Nov.

lmao, the same thing happened with me weeks ago. I saw, wedged by the door of the passenger seat, a copy of Golden Compass (360). This was days after I said I'd stop flipping and finding this new game fueled my need to started the process all over again.

I may have missed it, but did Rock Band for PS2 go back up in price? I was finally going to take the dive since I knew it was $99 at BB and I could just trade in the game itself towards the PS3 version (since both use the same instruments, but all of my local BB in Greenville, SC are sold out. So I happen to be going to Myrtle Beach in the near future and called a store down there. They have 4 but at $159.

Sucks if I missed it.

I'm pretty pissed to hear of your store even holding the item for so long let alone at all. Down here they won't let you reserve or hold anything. It's first come and first serve bullshit. Ugh.

Does Madden come in a regular PSP case or is it a sleeve type of deal? I was thinking of getting the Madden PSP trade in madden game and purchase the god of war game. Anybody know how well do PSP games trade at BB? or would it be better at GS?

Wow, Gears of War gets $25 still....that is a nice price. I may trade mine in since #2 looks pretty darn good. I loved the single player, but barely played the multiplayer for some reason. It was enjoyable, but I never played it much.

I think I still have $300+ credit, looking to buy something new....maybe I will just get osme games. I really want NHL 09, GoW2 and Fallout 3 (I think)

New coupon (starting tomorrow) at GS is 25% off any used Nintendo system games (meaning Wii, DS, 'Cube, and GBA). Here we go again.

Ah Jeez. Oh well, guess I have to go get the money from those Madden preorders now and pick up some Wii games. Time to start searching for the good flips since I've exhausted Dancing with the Stars and Budokai already.
