Fucking shit, so we do get a free ham sandwich with the purchase of any game $9.99 or less AND a free game $14.99 and above?


No, its very simple, the sandwich only applies with any game less than or equal to 9.99 unless the wind is blowing southwesterly, in which case you get $20 free and you must buy a $19.99 game to get three free games plus an additional $9.99 game unless it's a Monday, but the deal doesn't apply on days beginning with S or T unless you buy a $14.99 game. I mean what's so hard to understand here, people?

Apparently both versions of metal of honor are 14.99, solid game but broken multiplayer. Is the community still active for it btw ?

Are you at the one on Houston and Ave A? Every time I go there I have to scan everything I'm interested in and about half of it comes up at a different price than what the sticker says.


The one I go to is on 94 street on Broadway in manhattan. I feel your pain about the prices btw. You could see something that you want but its tag says 44 so you Stay away from it, but in reality it might be 20 and you loose out.

Man I can't wait.. just 2 more days until this sale starts. Only thing I can't decide is which one's worth getting, Dead Rising 2 or Mafia II.. Or should I completely bypass those and go for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood? I was in the mood for 15$ and under games I didn't want to have to purchase any 20$ games but I may have to now that this offer changed.

I have the first Dead Rising (got it when it first came out) and I thought it was pretty awesome but part of me has always wanted Mafia II (but then again I've heard it's really short) LOL such a dilemma. Screw it I'll just buy em both.

Doesn't sound like that's going to work. Free title has to be 14.99 and under from what HB has said.

I blame public schools!!!


I didn't go to public schools ;).

But anyway, we'll see how this plays out. It seems like any time they try to do something different than the normal B1G1 $14.99 and under, there are "issues". Remember that one day that all the used games were 50% off? That was supposed to be another variation on the B1G1 - buy any game and get another 50% off. That wasn't as good as the normal B1G1, of course, until we found out that it made both games 50% off and applied to any price point ;).

So we'll see what happens Friday. As it is, I'm pretty much thinking of this as a standard B1G1 though perhaps there might be a game or two I grab at $19.99 if I can't find decent $14.99 pairings.

I remember this. I definitely remember the look on the employee's face when they rang up all the games I bought. They looked at me like I hacked their machines or something. :lol:

This is my strategy as well. Usually when I can't find a good pairing, I end up buying a game to trade in somewhere. I guess I don't have to do that this time. I can actually get a $19.99 game that I want to keep.

I don't want to go crazy and buy a bunch of games for $19.99 and then see them for $14.99 during the next B1G1 (assuming there is another B1G1). Furthermore, I'm more excited for the new drops on the 5 for 20 blu-ray deal, so I'll be spending enough cash on those as well.

I don't think this one has been mentioned in a while: donkey kong country $29.99.

Very pricey for a BBV purchase, but if you really want it bad, make sure it's scratch-free, and buy a $14.99 game you really want, it might be worth it. Donkey Kong Country+Uncharted 2 for $29.99+tax wouldn't be a bad deal.

Boy, do I ever. Made out like a bandit that day.
I must've gone to 7 different Blockbusters. 5 of which are no longer there. To their credit, they honored the system price. I had some ring up all the games 50% off without question, some called their managers, but the managers always authorized it. I will be reading the east coast reports on this sale Friday morning with great interest.

Sorry to ask this, but it's too hard to find anything in this thread:

Is there going to be an updated list of price drops, or is what we've seen what we're still getting?

Amusingly, one of the employees at BBV during the previous B1G1 sale said if he was in charge, he would do a deal where you buy any game and then you would get a $14.99 game for free. Maybe they promoted him to corporate or something ;)

Please get Mafia 2 if you were at all interested in the first one or you like those kind of games/films. I got it from the Amazon holiday sale last year for $12.50 and I just got around to playing it a few days ago. Took me about 14 hours to beat it but it was completely worth it. Without revealing any spoilers, great storyline, pretty good gameplay, and a pretty awesome environment. Definitely worth atleast $15 but you will probably end up getting it cheaper than that. Hope I convinced you!! :D

$34.99 for PS3. Didn't see one for 360.


After scouting out the local store I think this sale is going to be a bust for me. Their higher priced games are overpriced for the most part. Their lower priced game selection is pretty thin due to the last B1G1.

Here's some prices I noticed:
:ps3: COD Black Ops - $34.99
:ps3: Ass Creed Brotherhood - $29.99
:ps3: Little Big Planet 2 - $44.99
:ps3: Red Dead - $24.99
:ps3: The Shoot - $24.99
:ps3: Splatterhouse - $24.99
:ps3: Call of Duty WAW - $14.99
:ps3: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 - $19.99
:wii: Super Mario Galaxy - $24.99
:360: Dead Rising 2 - $19.99
:360: Ass Creed Brotherhood - $19.99 (this one's tempting, but they had 15 copies)
:360: N3 II - $14.99
:360: MVC III - $34.99
:360: Medal of Honor - $14.99

$19.99 for both Xbox360 and PS3, not sure if I want to buy used from BBV. The online code will most likely be used and you won't be able to play online or download the tuner patch.
