called the store closest to work, and they said they aren't having a sale. They have always participated before. Is this a case of ignorant employees?

Probably, I remember one time I went into my closest store and they had no clue about it. The women actually had to call her supervisor and couldn't get a hold of him. Finally she found something in their log book about it.

Basically if they participated before they probably are now.

Does something have to be done at the register or will the second game autoring free? Thinking about going anyway but I don't want to have to argue with a CSR today, not in the mood =/

Got what I wanted...Fallout: NV and Enslaved for the 360 (both priced incorrectly). Smooth transaction and second game came up free without issues.

No Wii stuff at my local BB at all (I was gonna grab to flip for XBL points anyhow) but did grab Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and Blood Bowl for $7.55 (they were both marked 9.99 but rang up as 6.99).

Counter clerk said she knew that they were supposed to be 9.99 each, but didn't want to anger the mob of elderly folks behind me renting movies. No wonder they're in financial trouble always!

Not what I was looking for, but for the price I'm happy.

New Vegas and Enslaved are actually missing from the OP, just thought I'd point that out. Still, thanks for keeping us informed io and hawaiiboy.

I'll go see what I can find in a couple hours.

PS3 selection was very weak but I picked up:

Fallout New Vegas (Was priced correctly at one store and incorrectly at another, but when I took it up to the register it scanned at the correct $14.99 price)
Lego Batman
ATV Untamed
Devil May Cry 4

Both stores had over 100 XBox games out but hardly any PS3

Columbia MD is not participating in the sale. When I took it up to the register, they scanned and did not come up with a discount... :-(

He said something along the lines of a 25%/50%/75% sale starting later...

They are corporately owned...

Nothing of interest outside of a Fallout New Vegas and no manual Lego Harry Potter Wii. Maybe 25-30 unique titles total. Can't win 'em all.

Well I guess that saves me a trip. I guess the nearest one to me would be Glen Burnie. Not sure if I care enough for this sale enough though...

Was there right at 10 and ended up snagging 2 copies super mario galaxy(was very surprised to see this), dead to rights, fallout nv, enslaved, and lost planet 2...they had some decent wii games but most didn't have cover art or didn't have manuals and the box art was in rough shape

I hate the interstate network of highways this morning. Some fuckin' toolbags from NC were hitting up my closest BBV(in PA) this morning around 10:20 am and buying like 30 games. The manager(who is usually clueless n seems like a lazy Fuck) was more than happy to point them to the next BBV store too.:roll:

So much for me grabbing anything, as the complete copy of Singularity I saw yesterday was GONE by the time I got there this morning and it was mostly older garbage titles left.

I hit up the second BBV store in the area n they had jack and shit, save for a copy of Super Mario Strikers, Heavenly Sword and a couple of the DS Zelda games.:roll:

Looks like I'm sitting this sale out because if those asswads hit up the other two local stores I have a feeling history is gonna repeat itself n they'll grab 30+ games n leave nothing decent.:roll:

I found an el hoardo this morning. He was wearing an icky tron t-shirt and barely beat me to what I think may have been the good games at my local BBV.

So I hit 2 stores this morning. One had the updated prices such as $14.99 for New Vegas but no signs and they specifically told me they weren't running the sale (as a side note they mentioned the 25%-50%-75% that someone else mentioned in this thread). The other store had the signs up and the games separated out. I picked up New Vegas and Assassin's Creed 2 there.

I picked two copies of :360: Singuarity for my brother and myself. The clerk at the counter asked me if I was a flipper and told her I wasn't. She said that sometimes people buy all the games on clearance when this sale happens and I believe it.

Tons of games at my BBV. BBV is rockin' right now with this and the BD sale.

I've hit up two BBGR stores in Blue Springs, MO, and a regular BB in Columbia, MO.

Nothing. :-( Less than 20 games at each store, and almost all junk save for New Vegas which I already have.

Eh, guess it wasn't meant to be. Hope the best for everyone else, though!

My haul (Total of around 76$)

Posted Image

Im pretty satisfied, shopping on a budget sucks, though i only had to pass up a few titles (Didnt get Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass/Spirit Tracks, or Singularity).

Saw a second Beautiful Katamari, might go back and grab it tommorow if its still there

Swung by two local stores in central NJ, not very much (other than a metric ton of FO: NV), but I did find a copy of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn after doing some digging in the dump bin. Picked that up with God of War III for $16.xx.

Buying more games than I have time to play them is the only true CAG way! I don't know if I should put a grinning smiley or a crying one after that last sentence. :(

Went to two blockbusters this morning. The first one was suprisingly well stocked but I had just about everything, the second one was a dump. All I ended up with was Prince of Persia and Operation flashpoint though I noticed operation flashpoint is severely cracked so I'll have to go back.

If anyone is looking for anything in paticular for the ps3 or 360 let me know because chances are that first store I need to return to has it.

Just got back from the Elizabeth NJ store and they had quite a stock still left. Mostly Wii games but still some good choices.
I nabbed:
far cry 2 ps3
fallout new vegas 360
armored core 4 360
viking ps3
for the grand total of $26.

Anyone hit the Totowa NJ blockbuster yet?
Its usually picked over pretty quickly. Might stop by on the way home from work tonight.
