One of my friends at college was gonna pay 60 for NCAA Football 10, so I recommended him here and he ordered in a heart beat. I have ordered from here before and understand the game is usually in great condition, but you only get the manual 50% of the time. He just wanted to know how long they take to arrive. If I remember correctly it arrived in about a week. Is this accurate give or take a few days? I am in Southern Maine.

I have a FV in my little town. I've gone in a few times, but the "for sale" selection of used games has been paltry. May have to revisit, though. Maybe they're getting more in stock from corporate now or something.

these prices i'm listing are store prices that will never go back up...online I have no idea..seems they are taking a few days to match sometimes..so if you are close to a store you might want to give them a call if an online price isn't to your liking.

with Gamestop's latest coupon and edge card if Punch out is worth $25 trade in still you can pick up $15 flipping it to Gamestop.

Just received my copy of Mario Power Tennis. If it weren't for the small sticker they put in the middle of the disc, I'd swear it was brand new. Came with manual and case, and the disc looks fantastic. Highly satisfied :)

Ordered Mario Power Tennis and Punch Out online, both arrived today in flawless condition (disc, case, and manual). The only way you'd ever know it was used is the little family video sticker around the disc hole which appears to be easily removed. When I ordered I used a shipping address different than my billing and they left me an email to call them. So I called them, and a nice gal answered (no prompts, no wait) and had it squared away in about 2 minutes.

I'm sold on this place for sure. Color me impressed.

Always ask. Even after the lady told me they didn't have any Punch Out! games left, she found one for me.

I had a pretty good day. I picked up Overlord 2 complete for the 360 and a PS2 slim at another store. Both store the clerks were very helpful. I would've grabbed a Mario Tennis but neither store had one with a booklet.

yah if for some reason there isnt a booklet at one store...and another store has a booklet but isnt selling a copy..just bring the copy you bought into that store..tell them you wanted a copy with the booklet..they'll let you snag one..

How much does Family video charge for game rentals and for how long?

#57 XT14   CAGiversary! CAGiversary!   397 Posts   Joined 7.0 Years Ago

it varies per store and platform, but for the main 3 consoles its a couple bucks a night..cheaper the more nights you rent them for and the DS/PS2 games are cheaper on average also. You get half off rentals for a month your first time in there..so you can get 5 night rentals for about 3 bucks...not too bad, if you have a store local and haven't got a membership yet, they don't require credit cards or anything like that..so not much to lose for stopping in and checking it out even if you don't get anything

I ordered two Punch-out games from Family Video. They both came with manuals and the original cases, but for some reason the cover art on both was dull-colored like they were sitting in the sun for a long time and got faded. I also noticed that the display cases for Punch-out in Gamestop had the same faded look though they were no where near the windows of the store. Everywhere else I have gone, the cover-art looks normal and vivrant. Does anyone know why this is?

hmm..that is odd..especially since even if the titles were in the sun..if it bothers you enough check your local store (providing you have one) they will be able to swap the cover art for you...if nothing else they can just reprint some with their laser color printers to use for their store demo boxes..

No, I got them online... I don't have a family video near me. The games and everything are fine I'm more just curious as to why this is because this is because it's now twice that i've seen this. I searched online for punch-out faded cover but couldn't find anything. I've never seen this with any other game just punch-out.
