Oh damn that sucks! Well, if it means anything, I haven't seen any of those titles at the 3 stores I went to. Hopefully your store has them!

I just got back from Blockbuster... they are having the sale! But... it was crap... if you're getting Wii games. Nothing that I wanted was there, all they had was Guitar Hero: Aerosmith for the Wii. I got the last copy of Nights for $6.99 and for my free game I got Guitar Hero: Aerosmith... pretty much had to because there wasn't much else. I also got some DVD's... The Dark Knight, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Wrestler. All 3 were $14.99 each, but because of the DVD sale... I got all 3 for $20 :). Im happy I got some movies, but I wish they had more games. :cry:

I picked up:

2x GTA IV PS3
Folklore PS3
Bioshock PS3

All for $32.38

I traded in one GTA, Folklore and a game I already had for FNR4. Trying to decide between return FNR4 for store credit or keeping the game.

NOTE: One thing to know is that I asked the guy behind the counter if they would sell me rental copies of GTA and Folklore since they didn't have any in the bin, and he said that would be cool if they hadn't been rented in a while. Sure enough they hadn't so he went ahead and sold them to me. Even put them in PS3 game cases with the instruction books. So be sure to ask if you're striking out.


That's a new one. Heck I have a BBV not sell me a used copy that was in the binder to sell because they didn't have the display box out.

What are some pretty good flips out there? I know De Blob wii and 007 QOS (360)seem pretty good are there any other that stick out that I might be overlooking? I pretty much know the obvious ones but are there any others that folks are stumbling upon?

I bought Tenchu Shadow Assassins at GS with my credit there, then stopped at another BBV today and traded it in for $15. I picked up Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party (DS) and Cranium Kabooki (Wii), for $9.99+tax of that credit, both complete. I'm going to trade in Cranium on my way home at another BBV, hopefully for $16 and hopefully without getting banned. :) I traded in two copies elsewhere in the past but that was months ago.


Cue the morality police.

Picked up QoS and GTA 4 for 360. Is the Bourne game worth 7.50?
I'm attempting to sell some rarities:

-SCPH-1110 (aka sony ps1 flightstick)
-R4 box with Jogcon controller and t-shirt (JP)
-Earthbound, complete

Without a doubt it is worth that. I wouldn't have been upset paying $30 for it.

What's Blockbuster's return policy? Would I be able to return a PS3 controller without a receipt?

It should be, no receipt, hit the road. Unless you bought it recently, so a person might remember you or they could find it in the non member buying history(when someone just walks up with a couple of items for sale, but not to rent, this is what usually is used). If you bought it on your own account, as long as it was within a few months, you should be able to go back to that specific store and have them look it up as well.

But 99% of the time, if someone does not have a receipt, I can't do anything for them.

Well, I hit up 4 different blockbusters today in San Antonio. Basically, all the games listed in here were above the 14.99 price and anything below that sucked. I mean, NBA 2k7 for 14.99? What the hell. Also, no signs of the B1G1 sale, only saw B2G1.

Haven't bothered to read this whole thread, but can someone further explain the franchise/corporate thing? Is there a good chance I was just hitting up a bunch of franchise Blockbusters?

Could be they were franchise stores. Or it could just be that they didn't retag things and forgot to put up the B1G1 signage. I went to a few stores yesterday that didn't have the signage up, but for the most part things were correctly tagged (though I found a few $14.99 things still marked $19.99). There haven't been any huge price drops any time recently so chances are things will be correctly tagged even if they are slow. That indicates to me your stores were probably franchises. Like I said a few posts back (last page), look at the sign above checkout - if it says the name of a store manager and district manager then it is most likely a corporate store. If that isn't there, then maybe it is a franchise. Just ask though.

so the only games that qualify for the fight night deal at GS are GTA and Bioshock from this sale?

Total bust at all 3 of my GameRush stores. The only thing worth trading in that was available was 007. I don't think GameStop would take 3 copies of the same gaem ;)

Good times

I think I'm done, did the flipping I needed to do. There's like 4 more stores I haven't hit yet, but well see. Surprisingly, all of the stores I went to had no Bioshock or plenty of QOS like some have stated.

Well, I went to the store closest to me and to my surprise they actually had some titles but not much. They also had all the games on a table together.

I picked up:
Spiderman: Web of Shadows Xbox 360 (The only copy they had) $14.99
TNA Impact! PS3 $14.99

TNA was the only thing decent I saw outside of Fracture PS3 but I will probably give TNA to my nephew after I play it for a little while. I will be able to hit up a few more stores tomorrow so I hope they have some stuff to trade towards the Fight Night 4 deal since I have Folklore already to go with Web of Shadows.
Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)

I went to a few blockbusters today. My first one I got a nice haul, and than I traveled all the way back across to the other side of my house and realize the broad forgot my games...some of it is my fault, since I should have checked.

However, I call her, and she said thank god i called because she realized what she did.

So I went to Blockbuster and brought in the games she forgot to slip in the dvds. BUT, before I did that I pulled out my deblob cd and told her she forgot that one too...pretty scummy, but for that massive waste of gas and time (on the road) I figured I needed to get something for reimbursement.

Same thing happened yesterday, well kind of. I went to the final BBV I haven't checked out...hit the jackpot...but this store didnt take anymore copies of Wheelman and Tenchu. So I traveled 25 minutes out of the way to trade them in at another BBV. Turns out none of the employees working there knew how to trade games. I had to travel ANOTHER 30 minutes, back roads and through a storm to finally trade in my games. Than I made the trek back to the first BBV, with 15 minutes left on my games behind the counter (the manager gave me 2 hours to come and get the games).

Fuck incompetent employees wasting my gas...sometimes people like this force me to support machines like the redbox and vending kiosks...luckily I want there to be jobs so I don't/

Wooo

Entire day spent for 4 games. Went to all eight blockbusters in Manhattan (I think there are only eight).

Picked up:
DMC4 PS3
Mercs 2 PS3
Fracture PS3
Metal Slug Anthology Wii

For the most part selection is limited. Hopefully they restock before this sale ends.
Does anyone know when that might be by the way? I asked the clerks at the BBVs and got completely different answers. Or are they all right and its different from store to store?

Thanks.

I got PS3 Conan for me & PS3 Condemned 2 for my pal for $9.99 total. My local store is always kinda scarce on good stuff. I may try some of the others in the area tomorrow.

Now I gotta see what I can get in trade for my 360 Conan on swaptree or something.
