Here is a direct link of tales of vesperia: http://www.gamestop....roduct_id=71093. What it normally requires for new games is to click the item at the bottom of the search list that says "Show backorded used products that may be available in stores."

I'll have to think about this one. I loaded up on PSP games with the last coupon, but I can't actually think of much for the 360. Yeah, I could probably go for Civ Rev, but it would still be $35.74 for a used copy and was hoping to wait till $30 (new) on that one.

:-k... Orange Box at $17.54 is tempting if I can find a nice copy (there ought to be plenty to choose from!).

Oh, I would definitely snag Vesperia but I already checked that and, as expected, no used copies show up at all - but I'll keep checking that every day. Then I can keep my LE sealed (or sell it to pay for a few other things).

In terms of suggestions for other people, I would recommend Blue Dragon at just $11.69 and Culdcept Saga at $19.49. Both are awesome games well worth those prices.

Damn, now I really need to pick up the Orange Box. Also tempted by Blue Dragon, as that just dropped to $18 used...

I think it is CivRev or Tales for me if I can find them both. I didn't bite on alot of the newer/expensive used games last coupon unless I really wanted them. Actually I am looking at the used games that go for $54.99/49.99 on GS/EB website and of the ones I don't already have I can see alot of these hitting clearance at Target or dropping soon.

Hmm, as much as I want Civ, I could really see that getting clearanced at Target quickly. I know people say the game sold ok, but I just don't see it selling a ton of copies, especially at a Target. Guess I'll have to figure out if I really want to drop the $35 on it now or wait...:-k

I been debating CivRev myself, I just don't see how well that kind of game translates to console controls.

jp0213 - I rented Civ Rev when it first came out and thought it was excellent - which is why I'm seriously considering getting it via this coupon. It's just that it is sure to be a $29.99 game soon enough so I'll have to think about it. I never played the PC versions but I certainly had no problem with the control on the 360.

These coupons are best for those mid-range titles like Orange Box, which I held off on (as I probably wouldn't play Team Fortress at all and may only dabble in Half Life - it would mostly be for Portal and there's that Xbox Live version coming...). It is the $19.99-$29.99 MSRP games that are the best value with this coupon - barring some ultra-clearance you are unlikely to get these games much cheaper whereas the $54.99 ones will ALL come down eventually. So unless you want to play them right now you might as well wait. Tales would fall under this category for me and I'll buy it using this coupon in a heartbeat if one shows up. Someone wouldn't go 20 miles for it? Man, nearly all the GS I check out are at least that far ;).

At the other extreme, Sneak King would only be 32 cents after coupon + Edge ;). Load up!

Picked up the following:

Viking
Condemned 2
Burnout Paradise
Sega Superstar Tennis
Cabela's Trophy Bucks
Cabela's Big Game Hunter

Plan on turning the last 3 into BBV for some credit. Total was $76.01 in store credit; plan/hoping on getting back $60+ at BBV. I traded in 2 copies of PMD for $64 credit, so this could be a good day ($20 base, 50% extra trade in coupon [select markets only] plus edge bonus).

io - Thanks for that info. I may have to splurge one more time with this coupon, of course with my current backlog being what it is and the game surely dropping, I may just wait.

Dang. I hate Work Internet Filters.
Not only can I not get one of the coupon links to work, none of the pictures in the thread are working either. Man I hate that.
Oh well. I guess I can wait 'til I get home, and shop around on Sunday.

Try the demo; they actually did a pretty darn good job managing the controls for consoles.

Anybody have an opinion on Spectral Force 3 and/or Operation Darkness? I played the demo for OD and thought it had potential, but didn't leave much of an impression, might give it a shot though.

Just think, you could get 101 copies of Sneak King for that same price (the real price that is)!

Once again, I'm tempted by Civ Rev and Bad Company, but on 360 this time. Like Io, though, I can't bring myself to pay close to $40 for a used game that'll end up being $30 or less new once the holiday sales and new year clearances start.

Lessee what other titles could tempt me:

Tiger 09
Culdecept Saga
Army of Two

I have a feeling I'll end up skipping this like I did the other coupons though. :p

I know the expansion disc (shivering isles) loads directly to your hard drive then you never need it again. If you don't have a hard drive/360 failure it is a one time use item, never requiring the expansion disc again. I'm unsure if the GOTY expansion disc has any further protection on it (e.g. checks to see if it has the GOTY oblivion game as opposed to the regular oblivion game), but I would doubt it.

Damn, Infinite Undiscovery drops next week, too, but I doubt there'll be any used copies on release day.
