Just stopped by CC in Naperville on Route 59. A lot of guitar hero III and guitar hero world tour. Only 30% off right now, all platforms. Was hoping to find a Rock Band 2 for the 360 but no dice.

I know how you feel. I have the GH:WT bundle, so I was looking for a 360 RB2 game only, Took me a couple of weeks and I located one this weekend for 40% and grabbed it.

It was at the Elston CC.

Saw a bunch of Wiis at both Targets I went to today. Looks like they all might've gotten shipments if anyone was in need.

There wont be an issue with the PSN cards not working if I buy them at CC right? They should work normally?

Also, my uncle bought a labtop and bought the CC extended warranty, now that CC is going out of business what can he do? Is he sol?

Can you use more than one best buy gift certificate at once? I've accumulated a bunch through their rewards zone program. I have two ten dollar ones and a fiver. I wanted to go pick up SFIV and LocoRoco 2 but wanted to know if I could use them all at once.

One word: Nonexistent. The only thing they had was Guitar Hero bundles and one PS2 title and that was it.

I'm guessing he bought the laptop before the liquidation started? Basically at this point, the only warranty he has is the manufacturer's warranty.



Has anyone been out to the CC by North Riverside Mall recently? Thinking about going out there tomorrow morning. also could anyone recommend any CC that have a decent bunch of games, preferably DS, 360, and PS2?

You should be able to. I used several, plus gift cards for my iPod that I bought a while back.

I imagine that this weekend will be the last good one for CC stores around here.

I was there last sunday and still had a decent selection of games for every system but the best games were in the back in a glass case. I'm going tomorrow after work so I'll chime in then!!!

How does the HIP CC look game wise now that it's 50%?

Yep. Tons of Prince of Persia as well.

My haul:
:360: Prince of Persia 30.00
:360: Fallout 3 Lunchbox 30.00 8-)

I went earlier this week, Wednesday, and yeah... sparse. All games were in one aisle. Lots of PSPs. Lots of guides left, so I'm thinking of grabbing a couple. Maybe find the odd game for PS2, or finally pick up that copy of Shadow of the Colossus I wanted.


BTW:

Is there any CC still with a nice stock of games? Preferably 360, DS, and PS2. Also accessories and maybe point cards?

Wow. I'll take a $30 Xbox 360 Fallout 3 Lunchbox edition. Anyone seen a CC that still has plenty of them?

What about the PS3 version? Was there lots of those too at Berwyn? Either the lunchbox, or the regular edition.

I saw 2 or 3 Lunchboxes. I didn't look through the games so I can't tell you if there were any regulars.


I'm getting ready to do a run right now... anyone knows which CC to hit?

If anyone is looking to sell a PSP for a fair price PM me. I'll pay cash. It is fine if it has been hacked, in fact I would prefer one that is hackable. I'm going to make a desktop internet radio out of it.

Pretty much. I ended up picking up Barnyard Blast which will probably get gifted. Just waiting for the external hard drives to drop, and the strategy guides to drop down. and maybe pick up a DVD here and there.

Anyone knows of a CC worth going to?

Pizza lovers, do yourself a favor and order from these guys. Hands down, best pizza I have ever eaten. If you live in Chicago you MUST order from here. They recently moved to a new location and they say business is down, which is a shame. Try them out!! If you like them, spread the word. 8-)

Do they buy/sell game guides? I heard someone talking about that place in the guide thread.
