I hate YMMV's...if I can't get it online I'm not going out to look for it. I waste enough of my time playing video games alone...I don't need to waste more of it LOOKING for the damn things.

This was at one BB location in Boston, MA. They had 6 copies as of yesterday morning. The Target that was across the parking lot had 3 copies.



I just called a couple places that had it in stock but they told me it was $149.99 still.

Maybe I'll swing by tomorrow and check it out.

All the GoW3's are sold out near me, though one said they husked the game out and threw out the bonus stuff after release :/


i got the same response from a GS in riverside, IL. WTF who throws the extras away so they can sell the game "used"?!?

This is how I start to feel when I'm stuck on interstate traffic waiting to get to some store that MIGHT have a good deal on a game, when I still have a backlog at home. LOL

...if I know my Boston area BB's. Should be the South Bay Shopping Center.

This is ultimate fail and extremely YMMV...a lot of CAGS will be wasting their time with this one.


It looks like this SKU is not in the system anymore. Do I have an alternative method of finding this to calling all of my area GS locations and asking someone if they have it? That sounds like a sketchy proposition as I figure at least half of the people who answer the phone will just check the computer and tell me they don't have it.

The first rule of GS is never call them about an awesome deal. GS employees are notorious for either saving themselves a copy or not bothering too look at the back. You're best chance and probably most expensive to burn gas and drive around many GS locations that the zipcode search said might have it. Even than, if they won't sell it to you, say you wanna talk to a manager or DM about this and the employees might back off.

Cursed Mountain is crappy. It's slow, the graphics are reminiscent of cheap PC games from 2001. It is available on the PC as well, though runs just as clunky. You'll see what I mean in the first hour or so. My wii LE version will be kept sealed and placed in a vault for 100 years.

To add, you might get lucky and find a DMC4 CE at Wal Mart. There's one near me that has 3 of them brand new/sealed.

They were marked at $30, didn't bother to scan them.

Man, I remember a few months back I just went and bought a whole bunch of old CE's for under $10. Most were from mmo's. Tried to find most of them now, but many are not as cheap anymore. They were probably already mentioned before but here were some that i found.

Age of Conan CE with Bonus Book from gogamer - $5.90 + shipping
Got it for the artbook, also came with a bonus book from gogamer.
http://www.gogamer.c...8VVviewprod.htm

City of Villians CE at amazon.com for $3.88
Comes with the usuall CE stuff like posters, art book, ect. Also comes with a couple of heroclix action figures.
http://www.amazon.co...9049709&sr=1-27

And Auto Assault CE for $3.14 at amazon, comes with some decent headsets.

Is there somewhere I can get a cheap Fallout 3 CE? One popped up at my local Meijer about a month ago and I didn't even check the price. :dunce:

Of course it's gone now and i wouldn't mind getting my hands on that bobble head.

Need to read all the pages of this but was the Clive Barker's Jericho: Special Edition only on the 360 or was it also for the PC and PS3? I would like to get the game on the PC but only see the SE listed for the 360.

I think it's the one in the South Bay plaza based on his description of "Target across the parking lot." But there could be others... this is the only one that comes to my mind.

Best Buy in Memphis had all of it's Bioshock 2 CEs marked at $35 for both systems. I'm assuming this isn't YMMV.

I picked up the steelbook of Perfect dark from best buy for $5. They've had tons of them for almost a year now in the yellow shrink wrap marked "used" but most of them are not.

Really I just needed to get the case for my ultra rare copy.

Totally YMMV but my store still has a few.

That's tempting. I liked Persona 3 and reviews seem to be solid.

stavros45 and shivan128 are right.

The BB has them on the floor by the games and not on the shelf and Target has them on the side of the Electronics section by the laptop accesories on a shelf if I remember correctly.

I was very surprised to see them tbh. That BB also has Bioshock 2 LE, but I forget how much they were.
