4/30 Update

The final clearance prices are in. Not quite as good as I hoped, but a few deals to be had. Thanks again to (classified) for the information. If a game is not on this new list, it is going back up to its old price. So, if you want something from the sale, get it now with the coupon.

4/26 Update

I have been informed that final clearance will begin 5/3. I should have information concerning titles and prices around 4/30. Stay tuned.

4/5 Update

Sale is live!
:ps3: PS3
:360: 360
:wii: Wii
:ps2: PS2
:pc: PC
:ds: DS
:psp: PSP - UMD Movies

* Note: Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection is not part of this sale. It was apparently a mistake, one that has not been fixed. It's still listed on the site, but no discount has been applied to it.

4/4 Update


Thanks to (radio edit) for supplying us with the lists and prices. He also confirmed that the free wired 360 guitar promotion IS still valid with the purchase of Guitar Hero Aerosmith!

The lists were previously posted on GameStop.com at the following address. More than likely, when the sale does go live, this is where we will find the pricing.

And here is a scan of the 10% off coupon that was in this month's Game Informer. Thanks to xycury! Coupon is in the spoiler.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Is this sale for new or used games?
A: New games only. In the past, there have been B2G1 sales on used items associated with Game Days, so keep an eye out for that.

Q: Will all of the games be "gutted" or opened?
A: YMMV. Some stores I have been to basically open everything up and dump it into the bins. Others will only open a few copies and leave the rest behind the counter. If you want a sealed copy, make sure to ask.

Q: Is this in-store or online?
A: Both.

Q: Will the store accept a print-out of the 10% off coupon?
A: YMMV.

Q: Does the coupon work for one item or the whole purchase?
A: It works on all Game Days items bought in a purchase.

Q: Is there going to be a B2G1 on used games and accessories?
A: As previously mentioned, there could possibly be one later, but as of now, nope. There is only a B2G1 on used PS2 games when you buy a new PS2 system.

EDIT:
Ah, my mistake then. I'm an idiot...

List seems solid though I know everything I am interested in will not be at the 50% off price point. Thanks!

They've got some good DS, Wii, and PS3 options.

All new games. Unfortunately, many stores will open every, single copy they have. Others, though, will only open a few to put in the bins, and there will still be more sealed copies behind the counter.

Sweet, definitely will pick up Tomb Raider for 360! Been waiting for the game to hit sub-$20, as the game was not instock at the time of B2G1 a few weeks ago.

I see very few games that are new to this Game Days sale. I'm really let down.

Really? Just looking at the 360 and PS3 lists, I don't see anything that was offered last year.

The only thing I see is RE:essentials (hopefully for 12.50? :P). I'm gonna trade in my copy of RE4 for it since they gave me a black label box and manual with a greatest hits disk and when I asked if they had a black label disk to get what I'm suppose to get and for collector's reasons, I was called "stupid" -_-

Something I should mention about the sale from past experience. If you want the greatest chance of getting an ungutted "used" new game, get there as soon as they open for the first day of the sell. They will most likely be unpacking the games then and you can ask for a copy that hasn't been gutted yet. If you don't see it on the sale's floor, ask because they have it and just have not got to it yet.

Yay, I've been eyeing up Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles and it's on the list! Also, Valkyria Chronicles is a tempting purchase as well.

The only one on the list I want (and don't already have) is Chrono Trigger, but I've been waiting for it to get much cheaper so I can justify buying another remake I already own the original of.

They need to change the prices first. They are all retail.

Now, the discounts have not been applied, yet, because the sale has not begun. But like last year, they will be on sale for up to 50% off.

Read the thread, prices haven't gone into effect yet. They're just showing us what games we'll get a discount on when it hits.
