Just made my rounds thru NYC. and a weird thing. i looked up Xenosaga 3 On gamestop.com and not only for some strange reason it was available online, But maybe 20-30 stores in the New york area supposedly have them in store as well. I snagged 3 copies and ALL 3 WERE GEM MINT And COMPLETE.I I asked one of the managers that I'm cool with and he told me that It was sent to their store with a bunch of other random games. none of the Xenosagas I bought had obviously ever been played before. So it seems that maybe Gamestop Found a lost shipment in a warehouse somewhere and Distributed them to random Stores. one Thing though, all 3 had the "newer" PS2 case the one without The Memory Card Holder. Never seen them before like that, But i remember a similar thing happening with tales of he AByss. the later Print Runs had the Newer cases. anyway I know some of you CAG's will really jump on this deal.

P.s. Dont know if the thread has been started yet, but GS also has a "gameday" type sale, including BOTH new and old games,starting Monday some of the hilights include
COD MW2-29.99-PS3 and 360
AC2-19.99
and Batman AA-19.99
I seen th whole list but these are the ones I remeber the most

You know I just got a few copies in the mail from GS and they were all like this...I couldn't figure out where they got complete copies from.

I just noticed two local stores magically got copies in stock in the past day or so as well...hmm. Well it makes slightly more sense now.

Scribblenauts DS was 19.99 I believe
Darksiders-19.99
Blur-49.99

Do I really have to post it again?

Well since you seemed to have missed it the first time.

I think what he meant to say is that the Power sale stuff is already posted in another thread so you don't need to post it here.

The Xenosaga information, however, is new as far as I can tell.

Great game, although this seems like a pretty major reprint if so many copies are showing up.

FWIW, I hit 5 GS's this week, and each one had a complete, immaculate copy of this game. $19.99 "pre-owned".

It might be a reprint. I used their store availability and I see over 40+ stores have this game within a 10 mile radius off NYC. And yes, we do have that many Gamestop around here.

Hmmm wonder who did the reprint? It doesnt seem like GQD did it still shows OOS on their site unless they are just slow updating :razz:. I honestly couldn't see shitty Namco doing it...

BTW, MW2 is NOT 29.99, it's Call of Duty 4 thats 29.99. Modern Warfare 2 is 49.99 during the Power Saver sale.

Has to be a reprint. Every store within 30 miles of me has it in stock.

Same here and where I live some of these stores are out in the middle of nowhere.

i was thinking reprint too, especially cause of the cases. do you guys think that this is a one shot deal type of thing? and why would gamestop gut them all as opposed to selling them sealed?

I checked two days ago and there were only two stores within 10 miles of midtown that had any, so they're definitely getting restocked... I already got my minty ones from online though ;)

Funny, but I had gotten one at my local GS as well. The girl at the register also noted it was a recent arrival (since it was up on the counter and not filed away.)

It makes one wonder if GS was "seeding" the stores a little bit with titles that would get people to bite and get some of their other stock out the door on a B2G1 weekend.

Perhaps reprinting this game is Bamco's way of making money off of Nintendo's eventual release of Monado/Xenoblade?

Interesting.... about 3 months ago my GS had a used copy but it was in fantastic condition and had correct box and manual. My case has the PS2 memory card holder though, so it's an old print.

I got a new sealed one about 2 weeks ago off of Amazon. It went oos after my order so not sure how many copies they got a hold of.
