I just came back fro m BBV, and they are starting a new promotion today, buy 1 used game priced $9.99 or above, and get a $4.99 game free.

There's not a huge selection of $4.99 games, but there are some half decent ones. I picked up Soul Caliber IV for $9.99, and got Tomb Raider Anniversary Wii free. Not a bad deal if you are buying a game anyway.

$4.99? Got to be some quality titles there. All the Catz, Dogz, Monkeyz and Petz games you can shake a stick at!

Its sounds like your BBV was maybe trying to clear out a load of crap.

Gameplays, reviews, and just havin' fun...

I saw at $4.99:
- Farcry (Wii)
- Harry Potter (PS3)
- Zelda TP (Wii)
- Call of Juarez (360)
- Viva Pinata (360)
- Spiderman 3 (Wii)

Good games at $9.99
- GTA IV (PS3)
- Tales of Vesperia (360)
- Hot Shot Golf (PS3)
- MGS4 (PS3)

You can get a pretty good duo of games for 10 bucks if your store has decent stock...and is having the promo, of course.

It is, along with Mario Party 8 and other older games. The only problem is finding stock.

Zelda has been $4.99 for a long time.. I thought stock would have been cleared out a long time ago.

Does the system automatically scan in the free 4.99 game if you buy something > $9.99?

nope, code didn't work for me at 3 different stores. just manually credit the 4.99 out, and thats how all them did it.

thanks for the heads up... checked out a store in Victoria today. There weren't many $4.99 games left, but managed to get MGS4, Mirror's Edge, WWE Raw, and Skate for $20... not bad!

FYI, Harry Potter on PS3 - both of them - have $9.25 TIV at EB Games. I know, because I bought one off Kijiji to trade in to get FFXIII :)

If I could find Zelda TP I'd be soooooo happy!

The moral of the story is..Check stores before putting down a deal. I saw a bunch of decent titles in my wanderings yesterday. Doing trading and seeing what I can snag. :D

Damn those are some good prices, my BBV is run by a bunch of RFD jerks so I'm guessing they'll all be sold out :/.

They haven't been mentioned by anyone else, but if you can find them; Ninja Gaiden 2 for the 360 at $9.99 and Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 for the PS2 at $4.99. I actually picked up the later all on its own, and while it still worked, the back of the disk might have been the worst thing I've EVER seen from Blockbuster.

Bring it back with your receipt, say it doesn't work and they'll resurface it for free!
