How much did it cost you for Killzone 3 and Red Faction:Armageddon?


At my BBV, RFA was $9.99, so $5 after the sale, and Killzone 3 was $14.99, so $7.50 after the sale.

Yes, this is exactly what I paid for them.

How'd you manage Super Mario Galaxy 2 for $12.50? I thought only items $19.99 and lower were eligible for half off.

You're right the lady messed up. The code wouldn't work on the computers there and she just gave me half off the entire purchase and not B1G1 50% off... I purchased so much there though I didn't even noticed til I got home.

I'd like to know when this sale ends as well. I'm not going back home until January 1 and was hoping to check the local BBV for any games.

If someone could verify, that would be GREAT. Also, is the giftcard deal dead as well?

Here's hoping it is still going on. :)


Sale should be good until 01/07/2013.

And the giftcard promo is indeed dead.

My Blockbuster, that usually doesn't have but a few overpriced games for sale, had 2 bins with about 100 games in each. The guy working there said they had just received a shipment of games recently. I passed on most because of lack of money but I did get Killzone 3 for $7.50 and Lego Pirates of Carribean for $5.

Are you guys going to Blockbusters that have GameRush still attached? Or just plain BlockBuster?

Sadly just found out that the store I planned on going to is closing down. Had my brother call to inquire about when the promo ends. They said that since they are closing, they are not doing any promotions. Is that normal? Kind of disappointed, because google shows them having good stock of games that I would buy.

Still might swing by to see what they have and what percentage they are giving off. I am sure it will be peanuts.

Stores that are closing usually suck because they ship off most of the good stuff to other stores then go into closing sale mode which usually jacks prices back up. Then they slowly start offering minimal discounts that never reach a decent price. At least thats what happened with the Blockbusters closing near me last year.

Store in Brookfield,WI on Calhoun & Capitol Drive has lots of games in the $19.99 & under range the only bad part is those damn dump bins they put them in so your going to dig.

Mine didn't have anything too crazy left, but I did manage to get Warhammer 40k: Space Marine for 7.50, Capcom vs Tetsui for 5.00, Battilon Wars 2 for 5.00 and a few no case games for 2.50(like FireFighter FD 18 and Nighty Nine Nights 2) so all in all, worth it. Might take another trip tomorrow just to see if anything else pops up, though I doubt it.

I just grabbed a copy of Killzone 3.. was open to others but thought meh Ive seen them new at the same price as the sale price so I passed....

Those damn bins seem endless though so I dont know what might have been at the bottom.
What did you get?

Just Killzone 3 and Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. If you went after me you saw most of the PS3 games at the top because I dug as many from the bottom as I could lol. I saw a lot of other games I wouldn't have minded getting but most were $19.99 and I didn't want to pay $10.
